Lou Will And Strip Club Chicken Wings

The story about Lou Will making a detour to a strip club for wings while outside the NBA bubble is absolutely ridiculous. Why would a seasoned veteran risk hurting his team if he really believed that they had a chance to win it all this year. My thoughts are that the only reason Lou Will would take that kind of risk is because he really doesn’t believe that the Los Angeles Clippers have what it takes to win it all this year.

Watching the Clippers and seeing how out of sync they have been this season in many game, players going in out and out of the lineup, rumors of chemistry issues, injuries, etc.; they lack the playing time needed to build chemistry. They had great chemistry with Mo Harkless and then they traded him away for Marcus Morris. If you notice, they started losing to everyone after the Harkless trade before finding a way to get back to winning. I think that the Harkless trade really hurt their chemistry. On top of all of that, Paul George has missed half of the season due to injuries and we can’t forget about Kawhi Leonard’s load management. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers has openly talked about the small amount of practice time by the full team. It really doesn’t bode well for Clippers fans.

NBA Restart: Who Will Win It All?

NBA teams will soon be headed to Orlando, Florida, and the Walt Disney World Resort where the league will complete the 2019-20 season. The league selected 22 teams to join the restart which will begin with games on July 30.

The teams chosen all had legitimate chances to make the top eight in their respective conference. In the West, there were five teams all within six games of current eighth-place Memphis. Any of the five could potentially replace the Grizzlies as the eighth seed in the West.

In the East, Washington is 4.5 games behind eighth-place Orlando. The Magic are just half a game behind Brooklyn, which is currently seventh.

The G.O.A.T. Argument

I was arguing with a friend earlier today about sports and he made a comment that the G.O.A.T. argument is just opinion based. I, like the majority of sports fans, think that Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T. QB in the NFL. I also think that Michael Jordan is the G.O.A.T. when it comes to the NBA. He said that he doesn’t believe that anyone is the G.O.A.T. of anything. He said that he might believe that Joe Montana is the greatest QB of all time. He said that an argument can even be made for Kobe or even LeBron to be considered the G.O.A.T. along with Michael Jordan. Ladies and gentlemen, my mind was officially blown 🤯

Worst Trades in NBA History

Sometimes, NBA teams gamble on a trade in an attempt to better their franchise. There are times when those trades work out for the best. Some trades can help teams get to the playoffs or even make a run to an NBA title. This article is not about those trades. This is about the trades that will be remembered as the worst in the history of the league.

Pippen for Polynice

Before Oklahoma City moved from Seattle, the old Supersonics made a huge mistake in the 1987 draft. The Sonics had the fifth overall pick which they used on a relative unknown out of Central Arkansas – Scottie Pippen. Instead of holding on to Pippen, the Sonics decided they would rather have 6-11 Olden Polynice. So, Seattle traded Pippen to Chicago where he became a seven-time All-Star and would win six NBA titles alongside a guy named Michael Jordan.

How the Toronto Raptors Can Repeat as NBA Champs

A year ago, Kawhi Leonard led the Toronto Raptors to the franchise’s first-ever NBA title. With an NBA Finals MVP in hand, Leonard checked out of Toronto and headed west to the Los Angeles Clippers for the 2019-20 season. The move leaves many wondering if Toronto can repeat as the NBA champion.

While Leonard’s loss was a big blow, it appears the Raptors were well on their way to making a case for a repeat run to the NBA finals. They put the rest of the league on notice. There is no reason to doubt that Toronto can win back-to-back NBA titles.

Kevin Durant Is The Best Player In The World

Kevin Durant is only 31, but he already has a hall of fame resume. The man formerly known as “The Slim Reaper” is a 10x NBA All-Star, 4x scoring champion, 2014 MVP and most importantly a 2x NBA champion with 2 Finals MVP.

KD may be sidelined this season while he recovers from an Achilles injury, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about him. When people debate the best player in the world LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Kawhi Leonard are usual names that are mentioned. But what if I told you the Durant is the best player in the league right now even while injured?

Doc Rivers: The Most Overrated Coach In NBA History

If you took a poll around the NBA, you could probably win a lot of money betting that there is a belief that Doc Rivers is a future hall of famer. When most think of him they probably think of the NBA championship back in 2008 with the Boston Celtics. Despite that one championship, Rivers hasn’t had as great of a career as everyone seems to think he has had. That Celtics team had a roster that consisted of three shoe-in hall of fame players (Allen, Pierce, Garnett), and a plethora of good role players. However, prior to Boston, during his time in Orlando, Rivers only put together a 171-168 (.504) record.

East:

Milwaukee vs Washington

If you like points – and let’s be honest who doesn’t? – then this matchup would be for you. Milwaukee and Washington both rank in the top 10 in points per game. Milwaukee ranks top 5 in the league in three pointers taken per game. With Giannis being a creator, it’s hard to not get open looks when that man is going to the lane.

Washington ranks top 10 in points, but they rank in the bottom half of the league in threes. They prefer to get this done from two point range. Getting the Wizards into the playoffs would also mean getting my guy, Bradley Beal, into the postseason, and off of the internet as a meme.

Los Angeles Lakers Finally Win A Game Against The L.A. Clippers!!!

My take away from the Lakers vs Clippers game III – Lakers may have just solidified their position as the best team in the NBA. Not only did the beat the Milwaukee Bucks, who hold the best record in the NBA, they also beat the biggest nemesis, whom they share a stadium with – the Los Angeles Clippers.

Kawhi Leonard underwhelmed and seemed to disappear in crucial moments of the game. Yes, he scored 27 points on 9-18 shooting, but he was 2-9 from 3 and seemed disinterested at times. PG was clearly the best player for the Clippers today. Paul George shot 9-16 for 31 points and was 3-7 from the 3-point line.

Is Kyrie Irving Toxic?

Cleveland Cavaliers

Kyrie Irving is known for his exceptional ball handling skills, artistry and creativeness of his shots and the game 7 shot against the Golden State Warriors that sealed the win for the Cleveland Cavaliers and brought the Cavaliers their first championship title.

While in Cleveland, he was known as an assassin. He was a scoring machine and most believe the biggest reason that LeBron left Miami return “home” to Cleveland. LeBron’s gamble was rewarded when his return to Cleveland culminated in a 2016 championship. The championship would not have been possible had it not been for Kyrie’s amazing 3-point shot in game 7 of the finals over Steph Curry’s extended hand to seal the championship for Cleveland. No one can argue that this was Kyrie’s finest moment of his NBA career. Since that amazing shot, it’s been all downhill for Kyrie.
