I don’t think KD’s request that’s the Nets fire Steve Nash and Sean Marks is the full story. I wrote a post over a month ago, right when KD first demanded a trade out of Brooklyn, that I thought KD was trying to “break up” with Kyrie without actually explicitly saying or doing so—in other… Read More More Evidence KD Wants out of Brooklyn Because of Kyrie
Yikes: Can’t imagine that’ll go over well in the locker room. Man, the 76ers are a complete mess. And honestly, in a vacuum, it’s hard to really rip them because with Embiid’s fractured orbital bone, his concussion, and the ligament tear in his hand, he’s clearly not been 100% in this series. He missed the… Read More Joel Embiid Basically Calls James Harden Washed
Legitimate contenders: Milwaukee: Say what you want about how they benefitted from all the injuries last year, but Giannis is probably the best player in the league (although Jokic is statistically superior) and they have a championship squad that is quite honestly one of the best-constructed rosters in recent memory (outside of the KD Warriors,… Read More NBA Playoff Teams, Ranked by Chances of Winning the Title This Year
So are us fans: Monty McCutchen, the NBA’s vice president of referee development and training, said Tuesday afternoon that he’s pleased with the league’s progress toward eliminating foul calls on non-basketball moves. He added that his officials are still working to strike the right balance between not calling fouls on those non-basketball moves and missing… Read More NBA “Pleased” With New Rules on Non-Basketball Moves
Through 4 games of the 2022 NBA season, James Harden has not been very good. He’s averaging 17.3 points per game on 36.4% field goal shooting despite averaging 25.1ppg and 44.4% field goal shooting over the course of his entire career. He’s also leading the league in missed shots and turnovers among qualified players–4.8 turnovers… Read More Is James Harden About to Fall Off Now That He Can’t Rely On the Whistle Anymore?
The new rule in action. Sorry to pick on Steph Curry, but this is the clearest example we have at this early stage in the preseason: It’s about damn time. I’ve always said it should be an offensive foul to do that, but I’ll settle for a no-call. Glad the NBA finally addressed this. No… Read More “Not This Year.” First Look at New NBA Rules on Unnatural Motions, and It’s About Time
It’s no secret that LeBron pays attention to what is being said about him him in both the sports media and on social media. He’s not like KD, where he will respond directly to haters and critics (sometimes even on burner accounts), but is usually keenly aware of the media narratives about him and his… Read More LeBron Responds to Critics of New-Look Lakers: “Keep that Same ENERGY when it Begins!”
I was going to wait until the Finals are finished for this post, but I see no need to wait. I’ll go over it more when we get to Giannis, but this is the top 10 players in the NBA right now, according to me. It’s based on simple criteria: what is the player capable… Read More Who Are the Top 10 Players in the NBA Right Now?
Last night’s game seven between the Bucks and the Nets was one of the greatest basketball games I’ve ever watched. It was close all game, dozens of lead changes, big shots left and right, and you had two of the best players in the world going toe-to-toe. Neither team could pull away, and it felt… Read More I Was Wrong About the Bucks!
Damn, he didn’t hold back: The thing is, he was saying this stuff before the season started. I have been saying since the playoffs started that the shortened offseason was bad for players and likely causing all these injuries, but I was only saying that because LeBron was saying it. I figured he knew what… Read More LeBron Blasts NBA for Putting Players at Higher Injury Risk
