The NBA has settled down a little bit, since the free agency boom, and draft. The last big controversy in the NBA was (and still is) Kyrie Irving wanting a trade. Now, lets talk about the Cavaliers, and are they going to be able to get another trip to the 2018 Finals?
The big news this weekend was the whole controversy surrounding Kyrie Irving. ESPN, Fox Sports, various sports blogs, etc. have wrote about this whole situation. We know the basics about the situation, but it still is pretty complex. Together, lets look at this whole wacky situation in detail.
Free agency has been a wild ride for the NBA. Players getting traded, all-stars signing, and veterans getting cut. One of the loudest discussion's about the NBA free agency is the whole situation about Carmelo Anthony. Anthony has talent, but the Knicks have not been able to win with him, so the common opinion has been to trade him away. And for awhile, that is what everyone thought was going to happen, but New York Knicks President Steve Mills decided to add to the drama of the situation.
The NBA offseason has been a whirlwind, and it is hard to keep track of what is happening. I personally love the offseason, and free agency in sports, so I really enjoy it. However, if you have not been keeping up with it, or just have not had the time to really analyze all of the signings, well look no further. I have 5 of the biggest free agency moves so far, and my reactions vary from love to hate, to wanting to hug someone, to wanting to punch someone.
There has been a lot of discussion about Lonzo Ball, and his father this year. Whether it was about Lonzo not working out with other teams, or if his shoes were to expensive, or if his father should stay quiet. Lonzo Ball has been a roller coaster of controversy. However, did the Lakers pick a player who could be another bust for their franchise?
Golden State won the NBA Championship in 5 game, which means that the Cavaliers lost in 5 games (obviously). Many know how I felt about the whole series, and how it was a bad thing for the Warriors and Cavaliers to rematch, all of that is here. Anyways, the NBA Final has come, and gone, and now, what is next for these two teams.
The first game in the Western Conference is already in the books, and it definitely has raised the tension in the NBA playoffs. The Celtics just squeezed out a game 7 win against the Wizards, and are competing for a spot in the NBA finals against the Cavaliers. Here are some of the basics, heading into the Conference Final series.
When I started Sports Reaction, I never thought that I would actually have an article talking about shoes, but here we are. What is the bid deal about these shoes, and who is in the right or wrong in this whole ideal?
The NBA playoffs...A time where we make predictions, and projections on who is going to make it to the Finals. At least, that is what the NBA playoffs used to be. Now, it is about how well the Warriors dominate to get to the Finals, and if there is a slim chance that the Cavaliers do not make it.
The Golden State Warriors has been struck with a dose of reality. They are not the same team without Kevin Durant. Some say that it is only a matter of time until they get their rhythm back. Others say that it is a gapping hole, and that it will not be easy to fill. The Warriors cannot completely lose their touch, since they still have important players still on the field, but losing an all-star is definitely a huge issue, and will another team take advantage of the situation?
