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.

WEST RESERVES:

WEST > EAST

THE WEST ON PAPER LOOKS LIKE THE BETTER TEAM. ALSO THEY HAVE THE MORE EXCITING PLAYERS TO WATCH.

I AM DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE A LOT OF PLAYERS THAT I WANTED TO SEE DID NOT MAKE THIS YEARS ALL STAR GAME.

MY BELIEF ON THE BIGGEST ALL STAR SNUB:

EAST BIGGEST SNUB:

BRADLEY BEAL

WEST BIGGEST SNUB:

DEVIN BOOKER

NBA ALL STAR FACTS:

WHICH PLAYER DID YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE ALL STAR GAME?

I PERSONALLY WANTED TO SEE DERRICK ROSE IN THE ALL STAR GAME. I BELIEVE THE FANS WOULD OF WANTED HIM OVER KYLE LOWRY. BUT THAT IS JUST MY OPINION. KYLE LOWRY’S TEAM IS 2ND IN THE EAST, SO THAT IS WHY HE WAS REWARDED.

HIS PERFORMANCE 👇🏽👇🏽

BY DESIGN:

DOMANTAS SABONIS WAS EXCLUSIVE USED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE FLOOR. HE WASN’T USED AS A SCORER BUT AS A DECOY FOR HIS TEAMMATES TO GET THEIR ONE ON ONE MATCHUPS. SABONIS WAS ALSO EFFICIENT IN LAST NIGHT’S GAME BESIDES THE 5 TURNOVERS.

STYLE OF PLAY:

THE INDIANA PACERS RAN A LOT OF DESIGN PICK AND ROLL HAND OFF’S THROUGH HIM. FORTUNATELY ENOUGH THIS STYLE OF PLAY WORKED AS HIS TEAMMATES WERE ABLE TO KNOCK DOWN THEIR SHOTS! THE DENVER NUGGETS TRIED TO SWITCH UP THEIR DEFENSE MANY TIMES BY DOUBLING AND TRAPPING. BUT SABONIS WOULD HIT HIS TEAMMATES WITH A SMOOTH BOUNCE /TOUCH PASS. (SIMILAR TO HIS DAD) OR HE WOULD CRASH THE BOARDS ON A MISS SHOT. HE WAS BUSY ON THE OFFENSE GLASS PULLING DOWN 7 OFFENSE REBOUNDS!

OVERALL THE INDIANA PACERS HAD A GREAT OFFENSE GAME-PLAN. WORKING THEIR MISMATCHES.

GAME SCORE:

INDIANA PACERS -115

(28-15)

DENVER NUGGETS – 107

(29-13)

FUN FACT:

DOMANTAS SABONIS IS THIRD OVERALL IN THE LEAGUE WITH DOUBLE DOUBLES. HE CURRENTLY HAS 32!

IS DOMANTAS SABONIS AN ALL-STAR?

YES. I HOPE HE MAKES IT!

UTAH JAZZ – 10 GAME WINNING STREAK

THE LAST TIME THE UTAH JAZZ LOST WAS ON DECEMBER 23 , 2019. THE JAZZ LOST AGAINST THE MIAMI HEAT IN A CLOSE NAIL-BITER. SINCE THAT DAY THE JAZZ MADE A TRADE WITH CLEVELAND FOR JORDAN CLARKSON. CLARKSON’S ROLE IS TO HELP IMPROVE THEIR DEPTH AND SCORING OFF THE BENCH.

WITH THIS STREAK:

ON A SCALE 1-10 HOW IMPRESSED ARE YOU WITH THIS WINNING STREAK?

I WOULD RATE THEIR STREAK AT A 6.

THEY ARE TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS AGAINST WEAKER OPPONENTS. IF THEY KEEP THIS STREAK ALIVE WHEN THEY PLAY AGAINST PLAYOFF TEAMS THEN I WILL CHANGE MY MIND. HOW LONG CAN THIS WINNING STREAK LAST?

THE UTAH JAZZ ARE CURRENTLY IN 3RD PLACE IN THE WEST WITH A RECORD OF 28-12.

ALSO THE UTAH JAZZ ARE TIED FOR THE THIRD BEST RECORD IN THE LEAGUE!

THIS CHART SHOWS THEIR WINNING STREAK AND THEIR OPPONENTS OVER THE LAST 10 GAMES.

HOW LONG CAN THE UTAH JAZZ KEEP THIS WINNING STREAK?

SHOULD DONOVAN MITCHELL BE IN THE MVP DISCUSSION IF THE UTAH JAZZ KEEP WINNING AT A HIGH CLIP?

I WOULD.

CAN THE JAZZ FINISH IN THE TOP 3 IN THE WEST?

HOPEFUL.

NIKOLA JOKIC VS ATLANTA HAWKS (1-6-20)

NOW THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR ALL SEASON FROM JOKIC!

HE DROPPED A CAREER HIGH VS THE ATLANTA HAWKS. LIKE HE HAD SOME PERSONAL VENDETTA AGAINST THEM. I MEAN THEY WERE LOW KEY DISRESPECTFUL TO NIKOLA JOKIC SHOOTING ABILITY. THEY TREATED HIM LIKE HE WAS BEN SIMMONS LOL!

THE ATLANTA HAWKS HAD NO ONE THAT COULD HOLD NIKOLA JOKIC ONE ON ONE AS HE PUNISHED THEM IN THE POST.

THE JOKER WAS A BULLY ALL NIGHT LONG. HE FEASTED IN THE PAINT LIKE IT WAS THANKSGIVING. THE ATLANTA HAWKS WERE CLEARLY NOT EXPECTING JOKIC TO BE AGGRESSIVE ALL THROUGHOUT THE GAME.

MY HOPES:

I HOPE THIS GAME WAS A TURNING POINT FOR NIKOLA JOKIC THIS SEASON.

“THE JOKER’S MINDSET”

“I AM THE BEST BIG MAN IN THE LEAGUE AND I WILL LEAD MY TEAM FURTHER THAN I DID LAST YEAR.”

GAME SCORE:

2ND YEAR PHENOMENONS- (LUKA DONCIC & TRAE YOUNG)

THESE TWO PLAYERS ARE HAVING AMAZING STARTS TO THEIR NBA CAREER. WITH THEIR PRODUCTION BOTH PLAYERS SHOULD BE FIRST TIME ALL STARS THIS YEAR.

FACT:

THE ATLANTA HAWKS AND DALLAS MAVERICKS SWAPPED PLAYERS ON DRAFT NIGHT! (ATLANTA ORIGINALLY DRAFTED LUKA DONCIC AND DALLAS DRAFTED TRAE YOUNG.)

WHICH PLAYER DO YOU THINK WILL HAVE THE BETTER CAREER?

AS OF RIGHT NOW: THEIR CATEGORY

LUKA DONCIC = SUPERSTAR LEVEL.

TRAE YOUNG = STAR LEVEL.

HERE ARE THE BEST PLAYS FROM EACH PLAYER DURING THIS NBA SEASON.

TRAE YOUNG:

LUKA DONCIC:

-STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE-

Kevin Durant – IN HIS OWN LEAGUE

MIAMI HEAT WERE ON🔥🔥 (12/10/19)

MY TOP 10 MIP (MOST IMPROVED CANDIDATES)

Kevin Durant career high vs the league

MICHAEL PORTER JR VS INDIANA PACERS (1/2/20)

MICHAEL PORTER JR SET A CAREER HIGH IN POINTS VS THE INDIANA PACERS.

👇🏽👇🏽

HE IS A WALKING BUCKET! AND OVER THE LAST FEW GAMES HE HAS GOTTEN A LOT MORE COMFORTABLE WITH HIS ROLE OFF THE BENCH. I LIKE HOW THE BENCH UNIT LIKES TO FEED HIM CONSTANTLY.

HE IS 6’10 AND LAST NIGHT HE SHOWN HOW EASILY IT IS FOR HIM TO KNIFE THROUGH THE PAINT TO SCORE OVER SMALLER DEFENDERS.

MICHAEL PORTER SHOT AN INCREDIBLE 9/9 WITHIN THE PAINT.

DENVER IS SLOWLY GIVING HIM MORE MINUTES. I THINK HE IS READY TO GET AT LEAST 20-25 MINUTES PER GAME NOW. LAST NIGHTS PERFORMANCE WAS NOT A GLIMPSE AT ALL. THAT IS HIS GAME AND HE IS ABLE TO BRING THAT ENERGY EACH AND EVERY GAME!

HIS LAST 2 GAMES:

-STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE-

AARON GORDON 12/4/19 VS PHOENIX SUNS
