NBA Free Agency Recap (Day 1)

Wow.

Just when you thought there couldn’t be any more insanity in this league, it gets more insane. We’ve seen a plethora of moves thus far that have changed the balance of the NBA. The Western Conference if officially open for grabs, and the Eastern Conference is still a competitive battle.

We are still waiting for a decision from Kawhi Leonard, and wherever he lands, that team will become a Finals contender.

Until then, lets recap the biggest moves of the day. Continue reading “NBA Free Agency Recap (Day 1)”

2019 NBA Offseason Predictions

I tried to wait as long as possible to make this piece so the predictions could seem at least somewhat accurate and make sense. As we know, things can change quickly in the NBA, and I’m sure by the time you see this, we’ll know something we didn’t before, and that will mess with everything.

But oh well, now or never. Continue reading “2019 NBA Offseason Predictions”

Kemba Walker to Boston?

NBA Awards Recap

After a long wait, we FINALLY learned what players won what awards for their performance during the regular season.

I think the league should have it the Friday or Saturday before Game 2 of the NBA Finals (I originally thought Saturday, but normally there would be a Stanley Cup game that night). Otherwise, go back to the old format and announce the awards during the beginning of the postseason.

Anyway, I made some predictions on awards (as well as All-NBA, All-Defensive, and All-Rookie Teams) right after the regular season, and I’m going to compare how I did versus what the actual results ended up being.

Lets see how it went.

Celtics Draft Recap

The Celtics have had a whirlwind of change hit them the past few weeks.

It has become more and more inevitable that Kyrie Irving will not return to the team next season. This past week, Al Horford opted out of the final year of his contract with the Celtics. There was an assumption he would sign a team-friendly deal with the team, but negotiations broke down, and there are reports the Mavericks will offer him a 4-year, $112 million contract in free agency; translation: he gone.

The worst case scenario seems to have arrived, but some hope came last night in the form of the NBA Draft. Continue reading “Celtics Draft Recap”
