Who won the Cavaliers, Celtics trade?

Who won the Cavaliers, Celtics trade? Easy. The Cavaliers definitely win this trade landing Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the Nets 2018 unprotected 1st Round pick. Isaiah Thomas was the heart and soul of that Boston Celtics team. Thomas averaged 28.9 PPG, 5.9 APG, and shot 46% from the field. Isaiah will be motivated in his contract year playing alongside the best player in the NBA, LeBron James. Jae Crowder is a great physical defensive player and will be able to feed off LeBron. Crowder continues to improve…

Eastern Conference Playoff Predictions

The Eastern Conference will be weak this year due to the fact that most of the talent in the conference moved over to the West. Here are my early picks for this year’s Eastern Conference playoffs: 1 Seed – Cleveland Cavaliers: Lebron James is a one man super team along with their plethora of good role players and great three point shooters such as J.R Smith and Kyle Korver. Also, with former All-Star Kevin Love, they have a great core of guys to lead them to their fourth straight finals…

What’s Next for Melo?

What’s Next for Melo? It’s been awhile now since Phil Jackson and the Knicks brass have tried to send Melo on his way out of New York. Obviously, Carmelo has outlasted Phil Jackson in the organization but the questions remain surrounding Carmelo. It’s still uncertain if the Knicks will move on from him, sending him to the Houston Rockets, which is looking like the only team he’ll wave his no trade clause for. From Carmelo’s vantage point, if the Knicks can find a trade partner to a winning team I’m…

Knicks Hire Scott Perry

The Kings granted the Knicks permission to reach out to Scott Perry, who was just hired three months ago to work under Vlade Divac. Perry has had a good resume as an NBA executive. He was part of the Detroit Pistons front-office that assembled the 2004 NBA champion team and also was part of the Seattle Supersonics organization when they drafted Kevin Durant. Perry was hired in Sacramento and they went on to have a promising draft this year – and we know that was not Divacs’ doing. They walked…

Top NBA Rookies to Watch

Markelle Fultz– Fultz is going into a great situation in Philadelphia alongside Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and now J.J. Redick who was signed to a one year deal. Fultz is explosive in transition and excels in the pick and roll. Fultz averaged 23.2 PPG, 5.7 RPG, and 5.9 APG, while at Washington. With a strong supporting cast Markelle Fultz should have a great first season. #TrustTheProcess Jayson Tatum– Tatum has the ability to score inside, outside, and even in the midrange game. Under Coach K, Jayson Tatum averaged 16.8 PPG,…

Best NBA Free Agent Signings

Chris Paul– He opted into his contract with the Los Angeles Clippers to be traded to the Houston Rockets. Chris Paul is a floor general, who averaged 18.1 PPG and 9.2 APG last season. Some speculate how Chris Paul and James Harden will work together on the floor. I’ll say this is a good move for the Rockets to have two star players able to run the point and both excel in pick and roll situations. J.J. Redick– Redick signed a one year $23 million contract with the 76ers, a…

Goodbye Phil… Finally

A few days late but the time has finally come that James Dolan rightfully fired Phil Jackson. Phil is known for his eleven rings, two as a player and nine as a coach. At first, the move to hire him seemed like the Knicks were finally going to be a power house in the Eastern Conference. The deal was five years for $60 million but the unknown was upon us. Phil Jackson’s first hire was a retired former player Derek Fisher. Fisher had no experience as a coach and was…

Losers of the NBA Draft

Chicago Bulls: The Bulls gave up Butler for virtually nothing. They were trying to build around Butler but panicked once they lost in the playoffs. The Bulls just made themselves look worse than Phil Jackson and the Knicks. There’s no rationale behind this trade. Boston Celtics: This may be a surprise for some but with the rumors of them trading for Paul George, Jimmy Butler, or even Kristaps Porzingis – they were unable to make a deal. They ended up taking Jayson Tatum, who is probably the best NBA ready…

Winners of the NBA Draft

Minnesota Timberwolves: The Timberwolves made an aggressive move by acquiring Jimmy Butler on draft night from the Chicago Bulls. The Timberwolves also got the No.16 overall pick and drafted Justin Patton. The Bulls received Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine, and the No.7 overall pick Lauri Markkanen. Jimmy Butler will be joining a young team in the Timberwolves with Andrew Wiggins (22) and Karl Anthony-Towns (21). Butler will also be rejoining forces with Tom Thibodeau. Butler had his best season under Thibodeau in Chicago. Sacramento Kings: The Kings made a splash in…
