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
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.

NFL… Read More Goodell: Not Yet Enough Info on DeShaun Watson Lawsuits to Make Decision Regarding His Playing Status
This is according to John McClain, the Texans reporter for the Houston Chronicle who appears to be the most plugged-in person regarding the team: Now I know we previously heard that the Texans and Eagles were potentially nearing a deal for Watson, and that was months ago, but I guess it’s different this time. The… Read More Texans, Dolphins Nearing Trade for DeShaun Watson?
It has been quite the offseason for DeShaun Watson, to say the least. He’s embroiled in serious legal troubles with over 20 women accusing him of sexual misconduct. He began the offseason by requesting a trade from the Texans, and then all the allegations hit. That was several months ago, but we really haven’t heard… Read More DeShaun Watson to the Eagles?!
Yesterday, Steph Curry signed a 4 year contract extension with the Golden State Warriors that will probably ensure he retires a Warrior. He will be making $59.6 million in the 2026 NBA season, in which he will turn 38.
