NBA Draft 2017: Lonzo Ball Father’s Lakers Comments Hurting His NBA Draft Stock

NBA Draft 2017: Lonzo Ball Father’s Lakers Comments Hurting His NBA Draft Stock

When it comes to professional sports leagues like the NBA, college players have no say in where they play if they are good enough for the NBA Draft.

The original statement by Lonzo Ball’s father might make teams – including the Los Angeles Lakers – think twice about drafting Lonzo. There have been cases in the past, such as with John Elway and Eli Manning,...

Toronto Raptors Could Be A Threat To Cleveland Cavaliers

Toronto Raptors Could Be A Threat To Cleveland Cavaliers

With the NBA trade deadline recently passed, the biggest news of the 2017 trade deadline cycle was easily the New Orleans Pelicans acquiring the services of big man DeMarcus Cousins. Surely, with the New Orleans Pelicans acquiring DeMarcus Cousins to pair with established All-Star and fellow franchise player Anthony Davis, New Orleans has certainly positioned themselves for future success. That said, however, while most headlines focus on the big name, blockbuster trades, sometimes it’s the minor tweak to any given roster that can make the biggest difference — and that is precisely the...

Shaq Vs. McGee: Kevin Durant, Golden State Warriors Rally Behind JaVale

Shaq ribbing JaVale McGee on national television has gone on for years, and the Golden State Warriors big man decided he has had enough and let O’Neal know, via Twitter, that he will have none of it anymore.

NBA Trade Deadline Time Passes – Have The Cavs Been Passed By?

The Cavs did, in January, add veteran shooting guard and small forward Kyle Corver in exchange for Mo Williams, Mike Dunleavy, and a future first rounder. Many, however, had thought that NBA trade deadline time would also...
