The Hunters for Spurs Star Kawhi Leonard

The Sixers acquired more trade ammunition on draft night, but do they have enough? Despite not having a permanent general manager in place, Philadelphia’s 2018 draft did not lack for drama. The post-selection trade of Mikal Bridges to Phoenix for Zhaire Smith and Miami’s 2021 1st-round pick came out of nowhere, rare in a league environment where seemingly every trade rumor has typically been floated out in the twittersphere already. In the subsequent press conference, Brett Brown alluded to how the deal fit into the team’s overall long-term plans, saying the Sixers “are star...

Trading for Zhaire Smith was a great move for the Sixers

Defense, upside, and another trade asset. The Philadelphia 76ers could have gone in the direction many fans were hoping in the 2018 NBA Draft. They were on the clock with the 10th pick. Mikal Bridges was available and ready to fit in seamlessly as a talented, high-floor, 3-and-D prospect. But after selecting Bridges, the Sixers traded him away for Texas Tech’s Zhaire Smith and Miami’s 2021 unprotected first-round pick from the Phoenix Suns. First off, I’ll say that I was strongly on Team Bridges. Versatile forwards that can defend multiple positions, shoot threes, and play smart...

And we’re back, for our 11th big year! Every weekend, we’ll be updating the Nets’ off-season with bits and pieces of information, gossip, etc. to help take the edge off 28-54. That was the week that wasn’t? Like we said a few weeks back, that by 10:30 p.m. on Thursday, we’d all be scratching our heads and asking, What just happened? Of course, the draft wasn’t the big news. The big news was Wednesday’s trade of Timofey Mozgov, the 45th pick (Hamidou Diallo) in this year’s draft, a second rounder in 2021 and cash to the Hornets for Dwight Howard (Dwightmare VI) who the Nets...

NBA Draft Grades: Warriors receive strong marks for selecting Jacob Evans

The Warriors didn’t get the second round pick they were after, but the consensus among the internet’s draft analysts seems to be that they got good value in Jacob Evans with the 28th pick. By now, I think sophisticated fans know that NBA Draft grades are kind of silly. So I totally feel Brady Klopfer’s opinion about post-grades — they’re silly and often deserved to be mocked in retrospect. Draft grades within 3 years of the draft are very silly, but just so you can all mock me down the road for being an idiot, I’ll go on record as saying the Mavs did better than they had any...

Lynx defeat Mercury, Win Third Straight Game

A big win in Arizona Having won the past two games against good, but not great WNBA teams (Liberty and Wings), Friday’s matchup with the Phoenix Mercury was a good litmus test of the Lynx recently improved play. Going into this game Phoenix had the best record in the league behind strong play from their “big 3” Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner and DeWanna Bonner. Minnesota used a balanced, hot shooting night to defeat the Mercury 83-72, increasing their win streak to three and restoring faith in their 2018 campaign.
