NBA Season Preview: Golden State Warriors & Not Enough Teams In Their Way

Posted on 16 Oct, 2017, by in NBA

As the 2017-2018 NBA Season opening night approaches, it’s difficult to find anyone willing to predict a champion other than the Golden State Warriors. Some people will probably go for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Even fewer will mention the Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets. But that’s about it.

Posted on 9 Oct, 2017, by in Featured, NBA

This year’s list of the NBA’s top 10 highest paid players includes only four who were on it last season: DeMar DeRozan, LeBron James, James Harden and Russell Westbrook. The rising salary cap and players reacting accordingly is causing a great turnover when it comes to the top earners list. More

The Tanking Teams of the 2017-2018 NBA Season

Posted on 6 Oct, 2017, by in NBA

The NBA doesn’t like the word tanking, but the wording isn’t as important. Six teams are heading into this NBA season more concerned about losing and a good draft position than winning and making the playoffs. The Atlanta Hawks, suddenly stripped of all their recent talent; Chicago Bulls who waited too long before going in this direction; New York Knicks, free of Carmelo Anthony; the direction-less Orlando Magic; the super-young and talented Phoenix Suns; and the not too-far-from-competing Indiana Pacers.

Based on that stat line alone, it would seem Derrick Rose had a pretty good season in 2016-2017, his first and only on the New York Knicks. But those who watched him play and followed him over the course of last season, know it wasn’t a good campaign, nor did Rose enjoy his time in the Big Apple. More
