We want D’Angelo Russell back! Los Angeles Lakers fans right now.The players the Lakers can actually get in NBA free agency! D’Angelo Russell DeMarcus Cousins Jimmy Butler Klay Thompson Tobias Harris Going after Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Kemba Walker could cost the Lakers fairly good free agents. DeMarcus Cousins and De’Angelo Russell should be taken of the market quickly. Players the Lakers could realistically get in an N...

Paul George and Russell Westbrook should be the most feared one-two punch in the League, but media and fans see them as impotent. How could a triple-double guard and small forward who is just as deadly on defence as he is on offence be considered impotent? Strong words but when you consider the Oklahoma City Thunder’s roster this should not be the case!While the media raves about Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant, Paul George has quietly becom...

Michael Jordan has failed to call himself the goat, in years gone by. Not Lebron James though. A concensus amongst NBA basketball fans is that Michael Jordan is the greatest to have ever played the game. Now Michael Jordan agrees with them and he is prepared to say it. The basketball world was in a spin when King Lebron James proclaimed himself the best ever(TBE) to the world on his 34th birthday. He came to this conclusion after winning the NBA ...

Los Angeles Lakers best trade that the other team should take seriously. Devin Booker with Lebron James represents the best possible move for the Lakers. The Pheonix Suns would get Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and more. On the face of it, this could be a pricy trade for both Laker fans and Pheonix fans to swollow, but it would be stellar for both teams. The Pheonix Suns have their centre they have a great chance of aquiring RJ Barrett or Zion Willi...

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 po...

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....

Russell Westbrook player of the Day
Western Conference / October 20, 2017

Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City Thunder has given an indication of the way forward him and the team!! Carmelo Anthony was pretty good, but there was some ISO ball. I suggested Billy Donovan was going to be as good a coach as Popovich. I take that back, his offence lacks creativity and options. Too many times the ball finds itself on the wing or in the corner, then the team literally just stands and watches. How about a flare screen o...

He only ended up embracing his basketball talents while serving time in a detention centre and never looked ba...
