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
I think 2022 was, overall, a pretty good draft class. It’s not 2003 or 1984 or 1996 or anything, but it’ll turn out to be pretty solid. But the best part about the 2022 Draft being over is that we can now start talking about the French phenom who has been taking over draft nerd… Read More The 2022 NBA Draft is Complete. Now We Can Start Talking About Victor Wembanyama
Things have apparently gone from bad to worse for the Brooklyn Nets: after contract extension talks with Kyrie Irving “stalled,” and it was reported that there was a real chance Kyrie could be leaving the Nets, there was chatter (first reported by Woj, I believe) that we shouldn’t be surprised if we see Kyrie take… Read More The Nets Might Be in Some Real Trouble—Plus, Beal to Become an Unrestricted Free Agent? And: Draft Night is Here
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?
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?
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
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
Let me preface this by saying I think it’s not likely to happen. LeBron, at this stage of his career and this stage of his life, is in Los Angeles not only for basketball but for his post-basketball career, whatever that may be (Hollywood, business, etc). So it’s likely he’s there because he intends to… Read More LeBron Needs to Leave the Lakers and Go Back to the Miami Heat
This season has been nothing short of a disaster for the Lakers. The Russell Westbrook trade clearly has not worked out (I was wrong about that), AD is injury-plagued once again and has only played 37 games this year after playing 36 games in 2021. He may still come back before the end of the… Read More Should the Lakers Consider Trading AD?
Whoa. I don’t think anyone saw this coming: It’s a nice haul for the Chiefs in terms of draft picks. They have the 29th and 30th picks in the draft now. Right now, the website I use for mock drafts (Tankathon) has the Chiefs grabbing WR Jameson Williams from Alabama and LB Nakobe Dean from… Read More 🚨 Chiefs Trade Tyreek Hill to Dolphins!?
