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:

Lakers are trading Tim Mozgov and D'Angelo Russell to Nets for Brook Lopez and 27th pick Thursday, sources say.

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

For the Lakers, this is longer-term play to clear space for Paul George and LeBron James pursuit. Lonzo Ball on way at No.2 https://t.co/KxfdEuAUO0

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.

Just been watching the Celtics/Hawks game, and Timmy has had a hell of a 4th quarter. He's got 20 on the game, and he's looking like a legit player.

Frankly, the announcers can't stop talking about him. He's made a key adjustment and started slashing in true Not Just a Shooter(TM) fashion. Anybody else watching? What do y'all see different about his game?

I hope McGary is able to get himself over the injuries and self-inflicted wounds and get back on track on the basketball court somewhere. It sounds like he's looking at playing in either China or Europe.

NBA moves All-Star Game from Charlotte

NBA moves All-Star Game from Charlotte

Submitted by Lionsfan on July 21st, 2016 at 5:35 PM

It's being reported basically everywhere, but the NBA is following through on its threat to move the All-Star game out of North Carolina over recent bigoted laws aimed at the LGBTQ community.

 

Without any movement by state legislators in North Carolina to change newly enacted laws targeted at the LGBT community, the NBA is pulling the 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte, league sources told The Vertical.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver had threatened to move All-Star Weekend out of Charlotte unless a discriminatory North Carolina law aimed at the state’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community was changed – and time to do so has run out because of the logistics and planning the NBA needs to run its marquee midseason event, league sources said.

The league is reportedly looking towards New Orleans as a replacement host.

Tip off 8:00 PM EST on ABC/WatchESPN --- Cleveland Cavaliers @ Golden State Warriors

GSW favored at -4.5 or -5

Tonight's possible outcomes:

1) GSW begins a dynasty by repeating

2) LBJ comes through for CLE and starts an intensive rivalry, furthering his legacy

3) Harbaugh (Why? Because)

Should be a great game. DISCUSS.
