The Nets announced Caris Levert will be available to play tomorrow night for the first time since his injury. Awesome news for what could've been a much more serious injury. Hopefully he can return to the way he was playing before he got hurt.

NBA ratings way down on Turner (22%) and down 5% on ESPN to date.  Lebron to LA is hurting them in primetime in East, Central time zones.

Per Zach Lowe: https://mobile.twitter.com/ZachLowe_NBA/status/990304498244603904 Wolverines in NYC FTW!!! Whether he gets the gig or not, glad to see head coaching buzz around Howard. Being an assistant for Sporlstra is a pretty solid way to learn high-level NBA coaching.

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/23236973/erin-popovich-wife-san-anto… ...Tragic loss. She had been battling illness for a while but it always sucks to hear about someone losing a spouse so early. 67 doesn't seem that old. Heartbreaking for Pop and especially in the middle of the playoffs. I hate the Spurs as much as the next guy for that dang '05 Finals, but this is very sad news for the Spurs and the whole NBA community. RIP Erin.

Did an LA barber hook up Hardaway JR. with a 31pt haircut? Probably not, but it’s a fun idea! https://www.theringer.com/nba/2018/2/27/17056238/nba-barbers-inside-sto… The THJ section is about 1/4 of the way in. Ballers gotta get cut

In an completely unexpected move, the Lakers give SG D'Angelo Russell and C Timofey Mozgov to the Brooklyn Nets and in return recieve Net's C Brook Lopez and the 27th overall pick:

Also according to Woj, the Lakers making the moves to entice Pacers' Paul George and Cavs' LeBron James as FAs in 2018:

I wonder what this means for former Wolverine and 1st rounder SG Caris LeVert on the Nets. Caris spent a large portion of his rookie season coming back from injury, but ended the season with an average of 10pt/2ast/4rbs on 24 minutes after the All-Star Break. It really looked like the Nets were committed to starting and developing LeVert for the long-haul.

Currently the Nets' backcourt consists of:

  • PG: Jeremy Lin, Isaiah Whitehead, Spencer Dinwiddle
  • SG: D'Angelo Russell, Sean Kilpatrick, Caris LeVert, Randy Foye, Archie Goodwin, KJ McDaniels

Very OT but it is NBA Finals week (should be a GREAT series) and I have been working on this new way to compare Jordan and James for a while, so I thought this would be a good time to get some input on it. I approached it a different way than game stats vs game stats and took a team approach. Open to all criticism on it, let me have it :P

OT-NBA All Star Game

OT-NBA All Star Game

Submitted by Bo248 on February 20th, 2017 at 8:58 AM
I'm so happy a watched MBB (in spite of the outcome) last night instead of the NBA Side Ring Circus called the All Star Game. I read this morning the final score was 192-182. I watched some highlights of the dunk fest. To call it a 'game' is surely a jest. Does anyone even care about that game any more? At one point Steph Curry was laying on the floor like a prop and and guys were jumping over him to dunk like a Globetrotter's game.
