The Pacers didn’t get any value whatsoever for Paul George while OKC may have just helped out the Los Angeles Lakers a year early. Good job everyone.
How many teams would want Derrick Rose? Maybe a team looking for a short-term arrangement, for someone who can give their superstar some rest each night?
What is OKC going to win with Russell Westbrook? But after losing KD to free agency and trading Harden for little in return, this would have to be huge.
The Lakers are essentially at their max cap space ($23.2 million), but have no reason to spend yet. That comes in 2018, when George and Westbrook are FAs.
We’ve tackled all of the individual player awards, but who gets into our various All-NBA teams? Tough decisions were more common than you may have thought.
LeBron James definitely isn’t going to win the NBA MVP Award this season, but that doesn’t mean he’s still the league’s best player.
Forget about the triple-double. The player James Harden was in the regular season provided more value to his team than anyone else. That makes him MVP.
Look, averaging a triple-double is remarkable, and Russell Westbrook should be commended. But is it MVP worthy? Not quite. And we’ll tell you why.
One of these years, Kawhi Leonard’s all-around talent is going to net him an NBA MVP Award. Unfortunately for him, it’s not this year. So why is that?
LeBron James is the best player in basketball, and that’s still impossible to dispute. But for various reasons, he’s not the most valuable. Not this year.
Don’t let his 40-point performance against the Cavaliers fool you—D’Angelo Russell has been rather underwhelming thus far. Just how much, you ask? Well…
Have you ever played Knockout? Well, what if we could get every NBA player in the game together for a league-wide game? And, who’s best built for it?
Cousins has moved while George and Butler stay put… for now. But what trades haven’t we considered? Russell Westbrook and Damian Lillard, for starters.
If we’re looking to assign a moral high ground in the Durant, Westbrook feud, it probably goes to Russ. But on the court? KD is undoubtedly superior.
Literally nobody has put up Lillard’s numbers and missed an ASG, but we’re supposed to take it seriously? The All-Star selection process needs to change.
We’re nearing the halfway point of the 2016-17 NBA season, and guess what? Joel Embiid is an MVP candidate. Or at the very least, he should be.
There once was a time when OKC had Westbrook, Harden and Durant. How is it that they didn’t experience more success with one another?
