Michael Jordan calls himself the Goat
Project Unknown / January 22, 2019

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 final against the Golden State Warriors in 2016.

New Years Resolutions of James Harden and NBA Stars!
Project Unknown / January 1, 2019

Match the NBA Stars to The top new year’s resolutions NBA fans would love from their NBA Stars. I will not sign with my competitors. I will not bully my teammates. I will not travel. I will not flop. I will not get injured. I will not be a rookie two years in a row. I will not stat pad. I will not ‘out’ my cheating teammates. I will change my dysfunctional shot. I will not be a rookie. Which of these NBA stars would you match them too? De’Angelo Russell Markelle Fultz Ben Simmons Lonzo Ball Russell Westbrook Rajon Rondo Chris Paul Derrick Rose Kawhi Leonard Kevin Durant Lebron James Giannis James Harden Jimmy Butler Jokes and hate aside, if NBA fans did not have to deal with the issues raised by the resolutions the culture and game of NBA basketball would significantly improve. My favorite NBA rule changes. Change the definition of the rookie rule. You can only be a rookie in the first year you are with a team injured or not. Get rid of the gather step/s rule. In my view this rule was introduced, so referees would not have to call travelling. Raise the minimum wage…

Top 5 NBA teams with Salary cap room for NBA free agents.

This coming NBA free agency threatens to be as exciting as the year of the Lebron James Decision. Tipoff top five teams and their chances of making big NBA free agent signings! ! Los Angeles Lakers Los Angeles Clippers Sacramento Kings New York Knicks Dallas Mavericks The teams in order of salaries committed for the season 2019/2020 are as follows. Brooklyn $40,332,631 Sacramento $46,373,959 LA Clippers $47,347,510 Atlanta $48,655,968 Dallas $51,769,283 Chicago $53,811,026 New York $57,344,983 Indiana $58,580,379 LA Lakers $67,230,167 Philadelphia $71,709,606 The NO1 team on salary, coach, talent and owner are the Dallas Mavericks. 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…

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…

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…
