Who were the Nets trying to fool here with this leak? This is like the old, “You can’t fire me because I quit!” line. This is nothing but cope and rationalization from the Nets. They’re trying to make it seem like they not only don’t care if they lose KD and Kyrie, but that they… Read More Sorry, Laker Fans: Kyrie Opts to the Final Year of his Contract With Brooklyn
Via Shams Charania of the Athletic: The Nets’ negotiations with Kyrie Irving were always going to be challenging, and now they’ve reportedly reached an impasse. Irving can opt out of his contract and become a free agent at the end of this month, and conversations with Brooklyn over an extension have gone stagnant. It could… Read More Report: Nets, Kyrie at “Impasse” in Contract Extension Talks; Could Kyrie Be on the Move?
I started this post in the fourth quarter as Boston was desperately trying to come back so I’ll just get all my thoughts out here as the game winds down: Boston just looks like they have dead legs. They can hit threes, but they literally cannot play defense at all. They’re not only giving up… Read More The Golden State Warriors Have Won the 2022 NBA Championship
You know if you read this site that I always say LeBron and Kyrie were the most skilled duo in NBA history. If not for injuries in 2015, and KD joining the Warriors to form the most unbeatable juggernaut in NBA history in 2016, LeBron and Kyrie would’ve won multiple rings. I’ve also always said… Read More Could a LeBron-Kyrie Reunion Actually be in the Works?
The guy goes for 40 & 10 more effortlessly than anyone I’ve ever seen. Sure, he’s had his troubles with this Boston defense, but Giannis is a player that gets stronger and more dangerous as the series goes on. He wears you down. Coming into last night’s game, he was averaging 33ppg in the series,… Read More Giannis is Undeniably the Best Player Alive
This is a great analysis by Eric Pincus, who is clearly very knowledgeable on the NBA salary cap and the rules front offices operate under: He says the Lakers would probably be better off doing a “waive and stretch” with Westbrook instead of trying to trade him. The waive and stretch entails simply cutting him… Read More How the Lakers Should Handle the Westbrook Situation
The marquee matchup of the opening round of the playoffs has to be Celtics-Nets. The Nets are way better than a 7-seed, and this easily could’ve been a conference finals matchup. That final sequence was just electric: However, a lot of people on social media noticed that one player in particular on the Nets wasn’t… Read More KD is Absolutely Not The Best Player in the World
Hey, the NBA finally brought the old Finals “script” logo back. It’s a bit different than it was before, but it’s still much better than the absolute abomination of a “logo” the NBA used from 2018-2021: That looks like some shit I could make with clip art. It has no character or personality at all.… Read More 2022 NBA Season Review & Playoff Predictions
As the LeBron slander pours in on social media–LeBron, other than his teammate AD, is the only athlete in history to ever be criticized and ridiculed for being injured–in the closing days of what is by a mile the greatest statistical age 37 season in NBA history, the incompetent den of vipers that is the… Read More This is Why the Lakers’ Front Office is the Worst in the Entire NBA
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
