How The Balance Of Conference Power Has Changed In The NBA This Offseason

How The Balance Of Conference Power Has Changed In The NBA This Offseason

This NBA offseason was one of the most consequential in recent memory, with a number of big trades and major signings taking place. Despite all of these moves, one thing was clear: the balance of power in the league drastically shifted as a lot of talent from the Eastern Conference moved to the Western Conference. According to FiveThirtyEight, 22 of the top 30 players in the NBA are currently playing in the Western Conference following all the major moves in free agency. This would give the Eastern Conference the least amount of top 30 players in the modern era (since 1976 NBA-ABA merger)...

Is Kyrie Irving using Kobe Bryant’s Career as a Blueprint?

Kyrie Irving has made sure to keep the NBA, the media, and the fans in a chaotic tizzy this summer with his trade request and the whirlwind that, subsequently, ensued. The latest bit of news for Kyrie Irving, which is a lot less dramatic, is the release of his brand new sneaker. Kyrie collaborated with Nike and his long time basketball idol, and now mentor, Kobe Bryant on the creation of the new Nike Kyrie 3 “Bruce Lee” shoes.

NBA Trade Rumors: Lakers’ Lonzo Ball To Knicks, Kristaps Porzingis To Celtics Was Considered?

An NBA trade involving the Lakers’ Lonzo Ball in a draft deal which featured the New York Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis was considered at one time. The deal would have involved three teams with the Boston Celtics actually winding up with Porzingis, though. It would have given the Boston Celtics a premier big man to go along with Isaiah Thomas on last season’s top team in the East. It also would have thwarted LaVar Ball’s plans to see his son become a Laker. As of right now, the two players are with their respective teams but at one time the former NY Knicks president Phil Jackson was...

NBA Trade Rumors: Cavs’ Kyrie Irving Prefers Trade To Clippers Over Spurs, Knicks, & Heat?

With ongoing NBA trade rumors about Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, the latest speculation is that he’d prefer one team over the rest.

Though there have been some whispers that the teams remained interested in a deal, there didn’t appear to be any formal movement on the deal until this week....
