Kevin Durant could be signed by the San Antonio Spurs

Kevin Durant could end up at the San Antonio Spurs.   No mainstream media analysts, aside from Skip Bayless, might think this is possible. At Tipoff predicting trades is our thing, we have a knack for it. At the moment, the likelihood depends on Kevin Durant’s desire to go down in history.   The Spurs have an opportunity to acquire another max level player. They might have to move a player and talk Pau Gasol into renegotiating his contract, but if he wants to go to the finals again, he will have to help and extend his contract. Pau Gasol with a backloaded contract of around 25 million over 3 years is a fair deal.   At the moment the Spurs salary bill will be 110 million dollars. A lot of money but league revenue is still trending up and Pau Gasol’s contract is 16million. The Spurs have talked stars into taking minimum and lower level contracts only to reward them in later years. Manu Ginobili, cut deals like that with the Spurs a couple times. So they have a reputation for doing it. If Pau takes a 3-year contract as a player who is really a lot less useful…

Dwight Howard’s roasted by gay ex lover roasts Video(full story).
Project Unknown / November 25, 2018

Dwight Howard and his team have a huge problem. It looks as though he got involved with the wrong person, or the wrong person is trying to get involved with him. The league will not do a dam thing, but if this was a hetrosexual affair the media and NBA would be all over this. Dwight Howard’s alleged ex gay lover Either way, it is an unfortunate affair. There is enough detail for it to be true and it is only funny if it is true. It is sad if it is a joke! Nothing like this is really funny, but dam people is there an adult in the room somewhere. Dwight, be thankful your not on Draymond Green’s team. In Summary From my understanding, this person is alleging a consensual relationship that went bad in some way. There was a breakdown in trust, anticipating this breakdown, it is claimed that friends of Dwight Howard made an ill-fated attempt to coerce this person into being trusting. The effort did not work; Dwight’s trust was violated, by this person.Now while violating this trust, the person wants to make it clear that the issue is not with Dwight but the people who…

Is Derrick Rose an NBA All Star?
National Basketball Association / November 19, 2018

Derrick Rose is an NBA All-Star again. Now he needs to take the Minnesota Timberwolves and elevate them back into a playoff contender.   Derrick Rose is playing with a quick mind as well as quick feet. In his early career, he was seen as the most athletic point guard in the league. The joke was often made that he made things look harder than they actually are. A walking busted knee about to happen.   Boy did he bust himself up.   Now Derrick Rose is the difference maker most teams would be glad to have.   47% three point shooter. 46% from the field 19 points   Derrick Rose is showing the career comeback of NBA history. This resurgence needs more longevity and an ending, a playoff ending. Now that would be special.   Can the former franchise player Derrick Rose maintain consistency?   The league has known all about Derrick and scouting reports are not able to stop this veteran anymore. His game has reached a maturity the rest of the League cannot find the rhythm of.   When Derrick comes to town, your town is in trouble!

NBA’s Top Ten duos
National Basketball Association / November 15, 2018

  Honourable mention to DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge a new pair, finding their way that can not be assessed until it has been playoff tested. The NBA League has some great duos, but duos like John Wall and Bradley of the Washington Wizards barely make this list. Their reputation counts for something. NBA players DeAaron Fox and Buddy Hield   The most impressive members on this list are DeAaron Fox and Buddy Hield. At the time of writing this article, DeAaron Fox was going for 18.7pts 7.1ast 4.4rebs. Commentators have been critical of the Sacramento Kings, but they won the trade with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans got DeMarcus Cousins and then let him go for nothing. The Kings got Buddy Hield who now produces 18.7pts and gels well with the team. They have not been playoff tested, but they have grown together and could be as good as Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. NBA players Russell Westbrook and Paul George Russell Westbrook and Paul George have a chance of being one of the best modern-day duos. Paul George is a former alpha that headed a team and Westbrook trusts him during clutch moments. At their best, this duo has the best…

The top 5 Sophomore NBA players (Second year) NBA MVP potential?

5 Sophomore NBA players (Second year) My Top five comment yours on facebook, should Josh Hart be there instead of Fox or should it be Dennis Smith Junior! Which players from this list will make the NBA All-Star game, Rookie of the Year or more realistically become a future NBA MVP. 1) Ben Simmons and Rookie of the year favorite. 2) Donovon Mitchell 3) Jayson Tatum. 4) DeAaron Fox 5) Kyle Kuzma NBA Sixers Ben Simmons A walking triple-double and can affect the game in multiple ways while playing numerous positions. Simmons must be the favorite to get a selection in the NBA All-Star game, but others are more significant to their team. Utah Jazz Donovon Mitchell A big shot taker and maker. He is the second oldest on the list and plays the game with that kind of wisdom. As long as the Utah Jazz do well, Donovon Mitchell will be at least a top 20 MVP candidate and on many lists a top 10.  He is averaging 22.3 pts a game at a low field goal percentage as he gains experience his efficiency will improve and will become a 25pts+ a game scorer. Boston Celtics Jayson Tatum   This chosen one…

Top 5 most beloved NBA players Derrick Rose
Project Unknown / November 9, 2018

1) Derrick Rose 2) Lebron James 3) Stephen Curry/Kyrie Irving. 4) Giannis Antetokounmpo 5) James Harden   Honourable mention Russell Westbrook. Russell Westbrook fans are faithful to him. Russell’s weaknesses are the stuff that stops him from ultimately winning. His supporters do not care and will follow him no matter what.   5) James Harden his fans are bittersweet, they swear his defence is elite, but always seems to fail when it really matters. The leagues best scoring guard, yes better than Stephen Curry, he scores in more ways than Curry. It is the conflict between Curry and Harden fans which shoes how beloved he is.   4) Gianni’s fans are global, and most neutral fans love this guy, he is too young to have done anything too wrong and never is associated with bad headlines. Giannis is popular!   3) Stephen Curry has probably the most annoying fans in the world, only one group of fans in the NBA can compete. Can you guess!   3) Kyrie Irving is still Uncle Drew, and all the Stephen Curry haters love him.   2) Lebron James, Lebron has more haters than lovers sadly. Due to Kobe fans, who are offended with the…

Phoenix Suns need to trade for Boston Celtics Kyrie Irving

Is Kyrie Irving a max contract player for the Boston Celtics?   Trade Uncle Drew before the deadline. Kyrie Irving is not a max contract player for in Boston. If it is essential for Uncle Drew to get his money, it is in the interests of the Boston Celtics to trade him. This year the Boston Celtics will not get past an entirely fit Toronto Raptors. The Raptors are playing with an ease and confidence in purpose, that should continue. Their Roster is balanced towards veterans with extensive playoff experience and a potent bench. JV has managed to reinvigorate his game, which Serge Ibaka did to become a modern power forward while he was playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Why trade Kyrie Irving? This current NBA draft will be one of the few times when the lottery pick will be worth a superstar. Maximum contracts for Gordon Hayward, Al Horford, and Kyrie Irving is not a sustainable roster. Al Horford and Gordon Hayward are not max-level players. Correctly pricing talent is what GMs are supposed to do according to Max Kellerman. The team that gets the best player in the trade is the team that wins the deal. A…

Lebron James is not a TOP 5 NBA MVP candidate.

Early NBA MVP candidates The best players on NBA teams that have winning records and would not be their best without them. In DubStepHD’s list of top 5 MVP candidates would all have better records with Los Angeles Lakers if they were there in place of Lebron James. Top 10 NBA MVP candidates 50%+ records ToP 10 NBA MVP candidates. Giannis Antetokounmpo Nikola Jokic Kawhi Leonard Stephen Curry Kemba Walker Kevin Durant Damian Lillard DeMar DeRozan LaMarcus Aldridge De’Arron Fox/Buddy Hield Top 10 NBA MVP candidates sub 50% records James Harden Lebron James Zach Lavine Devin Booker DeAngelo Russell Luka Doncic Paul George Russell Westbrook Hassan Whiteside Deandre Ayton Top 10 NBA MVP candidates rationale. On a combined list Lebron James would not make my cut for TOP 10 NBA MVP candidates. Right now if you swapped Lebron with any of the Top 6 candidates, the Los Angeles Lakers would have a better record. He merely has shown a reduced ability to control the end phases of an NBA game. Giannis Antetokounmpo has less help than many other top NBA teams. He is playing only 30 minutes a game, and his stats are 25 points a game, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and…
