PLAYERS I WANT TO SEE WIN A NBA TITLE

Current players in the league that I want to see win a chip before their career is done.

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo

2. Derrick Rose

3. Carmelo Anthony

4. Vince Carter

5. Damian Lillard

6. Anthony Davis

7. Kemba Walker

8. Paul George

9. Devin Booker

10. Jayson Tatum

11. Russell Westbrook

12. LaMarcus Aldridge

13. P.J. Tucker

14. Donovan Mitchell

15. J.J. Reddick

16. Demar DeRozan

17. Luka Doncic

18. Brook Lopez

19. DeAndre Jordan

20. Ricky Rubio

My List:

A lot of these players I grew up watching and I can appreciate their body of work.

I believe if you are capable of playing at least 10+ years in the nba. That alone is a nice accomplishment of durability. Your body has so many years it can perform at a high level.

Top 4 clutch players in todays game:

Did you know that Chris Paul has a great chance to make all defensive for the 10th time!

How many more years will Chris Paul play?

He is currently 34 and will be 35 before this season is over. Before he retires he has to accomplish these goals.

Play in the NBA finals or score over 20,000 points & dish out 10,000 assists.

Bballscholar Calculations:

20,000 points

18, 537 currently

= 1, 463 away

10, 000 assists

9,542 currently

= 458 away

Conclusion:

I would say he would play at least 2 or 3 more seasons. Unless his body breaks down completely.

Jayson Tatum joins an interesting group

Jayson Tatum has scored at least:

3,000 points

1,000 rebounds

150 3’s

He did all of this before turning 22 years of age.

Jayson Tatum joins this exclusive class of greatness:

Kevin Durant

Lebron James

Kobe Bryant

To accomplish this goal!

Now that’s some great company to be apart of!

I believe Jayson Tatum is on the verge on becoming a real superstar!

He will be must watch during these playoffs!

He is a first time all star so he’ll have a lot to prove to himself when the real season starts!

Toronto Raptors – 15 Straight Wins!

The Toronto Raptors are one of the best defensive teams in the league: They rank 2nd in defense ratings.

Toronto Raptors Record:

40-14 (3rd best record in the league)

Toronto Raptors Last Lost:

San Antonio Spurs on

1-12-20

105 Spurs

104 Raptors

In their last 20 games the Toronto Raptors have gone 16-4.

During their 15 game winning streak they have been decimating opponents with smothering defense.

The defending champs are playing playoff basketball. I am very impressed with their focus. I believe Nick Nurse is an highly intelligent coach. He is solely driven on team’s success. He strives off of it!

I believe they will end up with the 2nd seed in the east.

How far can the Toronto Raptors go?

They have the experience and talent to make it back to at least the Eastern Conference Finals.

Let me know your opinion.

JA MORANT 2/9/20 – FIRST TRIPLE DOUBLE

JA MORANT RECORDED HIS FIRST TRIPLE DOUBLE WITH A COMEBACK WIN AGAINST THE WASHINGTON WIZARDS! ONLY IN HIS FIRST YEAR MORANT HAS SHOWN THAT HE IS A REAL FLOOR GENERAL WITH CRAZY BOUNCE! I LIKE HOW HE PICKS HIS SPOTS ON THE COURT. IT SEEMS LIKE HE KNOWS HOW TO PUT HIS TEAMMATES IN POSITION TO SCORE.

GAME SCORE:

MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES – 106

THE POTENTIAL I SEE:

JA MORANT HAS A GREAT WINNING ATTITUDE. HE SHOWS HIS PASSION ON THE COURT AT ALL TIMES! HIS TEAMMATES FEED OFF HIS ENERGY.

AS A ROOKIE IF HE IS ABLE TO GET THE MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES INTO THE PLAYOFFS THEN WATCH OUT NBA! AT THIS POINT IN THIS SEASON JA MORANT HAS THE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR IN THE BAG!

CAN HE WIN AN MVP IN MEMPHIS?

IT IS A POSSIBILITY. I WOULDN’T RULE THAT OUT FOR HIS CAREER.

MY ONE CRITIQUE:

STOP JUMPING TO PASS!

THIS WILL ONLY LEAD TO MORE TURNOVERS. EVENTUALLY DEFENSIVE’S WILL SEND A HARD TRAP TO FORCE THAT JUMP PASS.
