Danny Green is the consummate three-and-D player. He can cover any wing; he can score without needing the ball. But there are already some worrying signs.
San Antonio Spurs
Gordon Hayward is likely Boston-bound. And if there’s one thing we know about Utah it’s that they won’t tank. So how much will they have to pay George Hill?
Patty Mills should’ve made more money than the Spurs gave him. Now that the market’s pretty different from a few years ago, why will the Hawks come calling?
Unless the Spurs get a commitment from a point guard (Paul, Irving or Hill), look for them to play both sides of the cap game. If that happens, then what?
The Pelicans may be our best chance to punish smaller opponents that have taken over the NBA. It just means reversing a long trend of dumb decision-making.
Had Kawhi Leonard not gotten injured, Spurs likely would’ve taken Game 1 from the Warriors. So can the chaos they created be sustained without him?
This Spurs-Warriors matchup is one we needed two years ago, which makes this series compelling for an entirely different set of reasons.
Game 6 of Rockets/Spurs reflected exactly what the end of Game 5 showed: Harden and company had run out of gas. That falls at the feet of Mike D’Antoni
It’s hard to take much away from two blowouts—one for each side, no less. But if Kawhi Leonard defends James Harden full-time, what’s the likelier outcome?
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.
It’s almost unbelievable how much success the San Antonio Spurs have had under Gregg Popovich. Or, ‘Pop.’ But, what other NBA GMs know what they’re doing?
The Warriors when Curry sits; Kawhi as a Power Forward; Blake Griffin at Center? As the playoffs approach, we break down the West’s most important lineups.
Sports matter to people. There’s civic pride attached to fans who care. And there needs to be a middle ground when discussing cities paying for stadiums.
With the NBA threatening teams over resting their players, it’s time to set some ground rules. Because choosing to rest them is a necessary evil.
