Can Lonzo Ball and Zion Williamson bring a title to New Orleans?

Lonzo Ball has become my favorite player from the moment he stepped into the NBA, I loved his game at UCLA as he carried them to the Final Four and was selected second overall by the best point guard of all-time Magic Johnson. Magic still stands by drafting Lonzo Ball and I have always admired unselfish players who care about getting their teammates involved like John Stockton,Steve Nash,Magic Johnson,Jason Kidd, and even Rajon Rondo who is currently in the NBA Continue reading “Can Lonzo Ball and Zion Williamson bring a title to New Orleans?”

Moritz Wagner making a difference in Washington already.

I still remember Moritz Wagner in college, a complete sniper from the outside and he does it at the center position. We all know how vital it is for bigs these days to be able to shoot the 3 ball, look at Brook Lopez and the effect his 3 point shooting has had in Mike Budenholzer’s system. More than likely Thomas Bryant will be the starting center but I do not see why Scott Brooks shouldn’t give Moritz Wagner a consistent 15-25 minutes a night off the bench, the kid Continue reading “Moritz Wagner making a difference in Washington already.”

James Harden is the real problem in Houston, it was never Chris Paul.

James Harden just turned 30 years old August 6 and ever since he became a Houston Rocket since Sam Presti elected to not pay him what he felt he was worth he has played like a superstar in the NBA. But not the kind of superstar who can lead you to a championship, see that is where I have a problem with James Harden. I really ask my self that question, how great is James Harden indeed? Sure he can get you 50-60 points any given night but has he improved his game? Continue reading “James Harden is the real problem in Houston, it was never Chris Paul.”

Are the LA Clippers legitimate contenders?

I keep asking myself this because I understand Kawhi Leonard is a top 5 player in the NBA right now and in the eyes the best player in the game which I disagree with, that crown still belongs to LeBron James in my personal opinion. Paul George was brought over before Kawhi Leonard signed and I’ve never been the biggest Paul George Continue reading “Are the LA Clippers legitimate contenders?”

Donte DiVincenzo might keep Giannis Antetokoumpo in Milwaukee.

Late first round pick Donte DiVincenzo missed 55 games this past season and appeared in only 27 games for the Bucks  but he was part of Mike Budenholzer’s rotation off the bench and will look to earn a defined role on the Bucks. I wrote an article about Milwaukee moving Milwaukee but I just can’t see him going to Golden State,New York, or Miami which will be likely destinations for him if he does indeed decide he won’t re-sign with the Milwaukee Bucks. Some Continue reading “Donte DiVincenzo might keep Giannis Antetokoumpo in Milwaukee.”

Winning will define Zion Williamson, and he will show us that.

I have never seen anything like Zion Williamson, I saw LeBron James in his prime gliding like a gazelle at 260 as a small ball power-forward for the Miami Heat and I also saw Vince Carter and Amare Stoudemire at their athletic peaks and it does not compare to Zion Williamson. Throw a young Shaquille O’Neal in there while you are at it and it does not match up, I have been following Zion Williamson since high-school and I often asked myself, is anyone keeping up with this kid? Continue reading “Winning will define Zion Williamson, and he will show us that.”

The Milwaukee Bucks should trade Giannis Antetokoumpo.

Jon Horst should pull the plug and trade Giannis Antetokoumpo. I understand he wants to build a winning culture around Giannis but how will Giannis feel 2 summers from now when he will be a free-agent. Milwaukee will be sure to offer him a super-max contract which could be in the range of  $240-250 million dollars, but does Giannis want money or does he want to win? Continue reading “The Milwaukee Bucks should trade Giannis Antetokoumpo.”
