NBA’s Top 5 Unexpected Cool Guys.
Project Unknown / December 30, 2018

Brian Scalabrine has retired and his cool needs to be inherited in the League. Lance Stephenson Luka Doncic De’Aaron Fox Stephen Curry Victor Oladipo Victor Oladipo Victor Oladipo is cool; Victor has a silky smooth RNB voice. It is commonplace for NBA players to venture into hip-hop and art is entirely subjective. Victor as a singer involves less subjectivity. He has a good soul voice, and any person who can sing in the toughest style of pop music is cool for me. De’Aaron Fox De’Aaron Fox is born out of the new anime generation, and I would not be surprised to see him at an esports event or comic con some day. When I think of Fox, I think of the beatdown put on Lonzo Ball and DragonBall Z. Stephen Curry Stephen Curry has as many haters as fans. Most haters do not hate him but are in love with a nemesis of Curry. I love the public hating celebrities cause the celeb is doing something right, they are rubbing people the wrong way right! Another aspect about Stephen Curry is he does not shy away from being true to his political self. Cool wife and daughter who are apart…

Blake Griffin goes digital arguing with an NBA referee
Eastern Conference / December 29, 2018

Blake Griffin while playing for the Detroit Pistons against the Indiana Pacers got petty about a call. He got hold of Tablet, during a break, to show the referee that he thought he was wrong on a call. It does not appear the referee agreed with him. The Indiana Pacers smashed Blake in return and the final score was 125 to 88.

Luka Doncic has led this team into playoff contention and Deandre Jordan still is a force in the Middle. Dallas has the ability to sign anybody. They are in a position to sign 3 max level players without offering max level contracts; Texas is a tax-friendly state as well. Half of the games played by the Dallas Mavericks will not have state income tax. While that is only a potential boost of around 7 percent. That is potentially 2 million+ per max contract that players might give back to the team. The number 2 team is the Sacramento Kings. They have the money and the team. The important players DeAaron Fox and Buddy Hield are under contract, except for their defensive anchor Willie Cauley-Stein. Willie only needs a qualifying offer of $6,265,631. The Kings are in a fabulous…

Let’s redraft the top 5 of the 2019 NBA Draft.

The order of the players picked would lead to a different balance in the league. Would Luka be our number one? 5) Trae Young 4) Kevin Knox 3) DeAndre Ayton 2) Luka Doncic 1) Jaren Jackson Jr 5) Trae Young He was compared to Stephen Curry during his last year at NCAA Division 1 level, but he is really like Steve Nash. He just had no weapons of any use at that level. Now he is in the NBA where the standard is higher his upside is being sprinkled all over the league and the NBA draft would be different. It was close between Trae and Marvin Bagley who has shown great potential. The coach does not have the necessary faith in Marvin which could cost his development. Although Trae is now my 5th best player on the NBA draft board, Dallas would not have been comfortable playing Dennis Smith Jr and Trae Young together. It is the same pick they took, but now they would have to trade for Kevin Knox or Jaren Jackson Jr which the Phoenix Suns would probably do. Trae Young and a draft pick should still expect to be a great trade. I project him…

Are The Golden State Warriors the All Time easiest NBA team to hate?
All Basketball News / December 24, 2018

The Golden State Warriors being a super team is not a problem. They abided by all NBA rules and managed to legally acquire Kevin Durant to the winningest team in NBA history. That may show a lack of confidence, but it also indicates intelligence. With such a talented team in the NBA, fans would hope for the opportunity to enjoy such talent, but the demeanor of Golden State players in recent years prevent that from happening. Their players continually complain about officiating, but they consistently benefit from calls more than any team in the NBA (excluding the Houston Rockets). Furthermore, GSW players have been in the news numerous times for getting angry at opposing NBA players for mocking or celebrating against the Warriors. Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors are undoubtedly the cockiest team in the NBA, constantly showboating. To make matters worse, the Warriors have a surplus of bandwagon fans and the worst commentators in the NBA. -ATrain

Top possible NBA trades we care about.
NBA Draft News , Western Conference / December 23, 2018

The trade deadline for NBA season 2018-2019 is fast approaching. The potential NBA trades are more interesting than we all realise. Anthony Davis Kyrie Irving Markelle Fultz Jabari Parker Trevor Ariza D’Angelo Russell Heavily Pursued by the Los Angeles Lakers, if they fail to get him do not be surprised if Lakers lose their team chemistry because of it. Kyrie Irving is a max contract player but is he a max contract player for the Boston Celtics. We care about it, but unless he is involved with a superstar, I will be surprised if they move him. Kyrie Irving is a playoff player! Markelle Fultz showed promise at the end of his rookie year. If he sorts out his shot, he will be devastating. Fix a shot really is not that hard at all. It does not take anyway near as many repetitions coaches lead you to believe. These are the best athletes in the world. Jabari has a big contract, but only 1 year left on it. There are overpriced players in the league, that can be acquired for bench assets and draft picks. Parker can be used to get another draft asset and a good locker room guy….
