Top 5 NBA Coaches in danger of being fired ALREADY!

1) Minnesota Timberwolves Tom Thibodeau The handling of the Jimmy Butler trade and the team’s inconsistent performance and the writing is on the wall. As soon as Jimmy Butler has gone this team’s record will dive to the depths of the Atlantic ocean and Tibs will be fired.    2) Scott Brooks Wizards Washington Wizards had no defensive pivot with the Injury of Howard. They appear to have a respectable roster in a conference without Lebron James. If it seems they are not going to make the playoffs trust me, he is gone. Wizards still have their pick and moving John Wall for picks and expiring contracts must be considered.   3) Oklahoma City Thunder Billy Donovan A great group of players, but Russell Westbrooks cannot get the most out of them. Billy Donovan is not a coach for superstars.   4) Mike Dantoni Houston Rockets team play sucks. Nothing more needs to be said.   5) Pheonix Suns Igor Kokoškov There appears to be nothing that suggests he is any good for this organization. When your team is the worst in the League your going to be on the hot seat.

The Los Angeles Lakers Lebron James needs another Superstar now!

Los Angeles Lakers Lebron James needs a Veteran closer.   The Los Angeles Lakers have to win 66% of the rest of their schedule to sure of making the playoffs. They are almost at the turning point of the season when a GM should decide between a big trade or a big tank. Surely that is too early! No, it is the Western Conference, traditionally in the West, the win level is quite high. Luke Walton has so many options as a coach. His choices are all young. He is still finding out what he has. Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart are fundamentally sound and understand their future direction as players. Lonzo Ball could still be a superstar, he has not changed his shot and cannot play out of rhythm. The team are still messing around with his role. He is inconsistent within that framework. Lonzo Ball is a distraction, which was expected by his ‘daddy’ not his play. Lonzo, Luke and Lebron do not work together at all. Lance is fulfilling his role from the bench, and many other players are working. Lonzo, Luke and Lebron do not. You can’t play Lonzo because his shot is a…

Basketball Tipoff’s Top 5 NBA’s Alpha
National Basketball Association / October 28, 2018

Is Lebron James or Russell Westbrook NBA’s Alpha What is an NBA alpha? When I think of alphas, I think of Kobe Bryant. I admittedly don’t rank Kobe very high on my list, but I do hold him as the best alpha to play the game. He was an enforcer for the culture. Alphas are those who are willing to be accountable for the pack. They don’t have to be the best, but they do have to have the guts to say “follow me.” Here are my top 5 alphas in the league today. Russell Westbrook From the way he carries himself to the stats he puts up OKC Westbrook says follow me to the Thunder organization. Does he fail? Of course, but he never backs down. Draymond Green He will likely be the worst player in the starting lineup come playoff time, and yet still, no one questions the leadership and toughness of Golden State Warriors Draymond. He is never afraid to tell the superstars around him to play Warriors basketball. It’s easy to be a big fish in a small pond, but Draymond is an undersized big on the best team ever and the unquestioned alpha in the…

Jimmy Butler, Zach Lavine trade redone

Jimmy Butler for Kris Dunn, Zach Lavine and Lauri Markkanen. It is unbelievable how bad this trade has turned out to be. Zach Lavine was a two time NBA Dunk Champion and Tom Thibodeaux’s leading man. It can be argued that his injury came about due to his overuse at 37.2 minutes a game. He was only 21 years old. Today his averages are 29.8pts, 53% from the field while shooting 43% from three. This is all taking place while ESPN staffers expected Markelle Fultz, Lonzo ball and others to be better basketball players this season. Zach Lavine is playing at a level, Lonzo Ball and many players in the league will never reach once in their career. The growth of Lavine is poetic justice to the disloyalty of the League. If an uninjured Wiggins been given in the trade for Jimmy Butler, the Minnesota Timberwolves would be a powerhouse team. Their draft pick, which turned out to be Lauri Markkanen, would have been higher. Zach, Jimmy and Karl Anthony Towns would be the foundation of your team. There would be no prospect of the character of the team be anything but Jimmy and Tibs! Zach Lavine should be playing…

NBA Leaders that count.

NBA stats deep dive and what The NBA season might be in its infancy, but we can understand a lot from the National Basketball Association statistics concerning the players as well as the teams. Golden State Warriors Golden State Warriors are letting Stephen Curry do a whole lot of scoring. The team does not lead the league in three-point scoring, but they do lead the league in assists. Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry are averaging around 8 catch and shoot attempts a game. Klay Thompson is doing more than just shooting 3 pointers. His high point production shows that he is bringing great balance to his scoring. He is in the top 3 for Mid Range point production at 42%. Blake Griffin Blake has started with the possibility of becoming the leagues MVP. The Detroit Pistons are unbeaten. He is averaging almost 100 touches a game and is the most important player on their team. Detroit Pistons coaches are running everything through him. It is suitable for the team his IQ is not bad, and he has matured into an intelligent basketball player. The more he is the rock, the better his team will do. Cleveland Cavaliers Colin Sexton is not a modern…

Top 5 NBA Rookies
NBA News / October 25, 2018

The top 5 Rookies at the moment. If Luka is No1 who are your other four NBA Rookies? Luka Doncic 18.3pts 4.3rebs 5.7asts (not even close) DeAndre Ayton 14.3pts 10.7rebs Trae Young 21.5pts 7.5asts Jaren Jackson 15pts 6.3rebs 1asts Marvin Bagley 14.5pts 7.3rebs 1.5blks Bamba is on a poor organization! Mo Bamba 4.5pts 4.5rebs 2blksAverages source ESPN correct at time of writing. Luka Doncic This European is by far the most accomplished and the eye test places him way above other rookies. His lack of quickness does not appear to matter on the Bigger NBA courts. It takes longer to help of other defenders in a spaced out league. Trae Young Like Luka the spaced out league is helping him a lot when weapons are added to the Hawks he will average close to ten assists per game. Jaren Jackson I did not hold as much hope for this player. The NBA is not the greatest at developing players. Most NBA development has to take place in the offseason. He has a pivotal role as a starter for Memphis who hope to bounce back straight into the playoffs. He has the most crucial role, being a starter on a Playoff…

Rajon Rondo continues to go at Chris Paul
NBA News , Western Conference / October 24, 2018

Rajon Rondo continues to go at Houston Rockets Chris Paul ? Here is what he told ESPN: “I had a mouthpiece in my mouth and I exasperated because I was about to tell him to ‘get the f*ck out of here.’ Look at my body language. My hands on my hips. I turn away for a second. Look at Eric and Melo in the video. If they saw me spit, they would have turned their face up or something. They had no reaction. Of course, the NBA went with his side because I got three games and he got two. Everyone wants to believe Chris Paul is a good guy. They don’t know he’s a horrible teammate. They don’t know how he treats people. Look at what he did last year when he was in LA; trying to get to the Clippers locker room. They don’t want to believe he’s capable of taunting and igniting an incident. Exasperating and spitting are two different things. He comes out and says I spit and the media sides with that. Y’all are playing me with these tricks or these mind games, tampering with the evidence. Ain’t no way that I intentionally spit on you with…

Los Angeles Clippers are the TOP team in town!

The Los Angeles Clippers are almost the complete package. A great owner, a great coach and great fans. The Clippers are the NBA Los Angeles team, Los Angeles natives can afford to watch. They are the number one national basketball association team in Los Angeles Right now The Clippers team is complete aside from a real star. Tobias Harris Mr. Harris is just that, a Mister. He has been an alpha player virtually all of his career. This former all American represents a great modern player. His primary position is small forward, but he has enough size to guard and play as a power forward in the modern NBA. His consistency and desire to excel is perfect and helps place this franchise in a prime position to snag a superstar who still has the heart for a challenge. Avery Bradley and Patrick Beverly Avery is a flat out hungry, along with Patrick Beverly they might be the best defensive backcourt since Ron Harper and Michael Jordan. While teams have been built to match the warriors, to outscore them, the Clippers went in the other direction. They have put together the best defensive backcourt in the league. The next step for…
