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.

Who had the more efficient game?

SHAI GILGEOUS-ALEXANDER VS MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES (1-14-20)

DETROIT PISTONS BASKETBALL – TIME TO BLOW IT UP

THE DETROIT PISTONS HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE TEAMS THAT HAVE HOVERING AROUND MEDIOCRITY FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW.

IF THEY MAKE THE PLAYOFFS THEY ARE USUALLY AN EASY OUT FOR THE TOP TEAMS TO KNOCK OFF IN THE FIRST ROUND. IN THE OTHER SCENARIO, IF THEY MISS THE PLAYOFFS THEY USUALLY FINISH AROUND 9 THROUGH 12. AND THAT IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOT TO GOOD BUT GOOD ENOUGH TO GET A TOP DRAFT PICK!

PLAYERS TO TRADE:

*TEAMS WOULD WANT HIM INCLUDED FOR A TRADE PACKAGE.

BLAKE GRIFFIN:

AGE – 30

REGGIE JACKSON

AGE – 29

MARKIEFF MORRIS

AGE – 30

DERRICK ROSE

AGE – 31

*LUKE KENNARD

AGE – 26

*LANGSTON GALLOWAY

AGE – 28

1 CHEST PIECE TO KEEP:

I WOULD KEEP ANDRE DRUMMOND. HE HAS A LOT OF VALUE AND HE IS 26. ANDRE DRUMMOND CAN STILL IMPROVE VASTLY. I THINK IT IS TIME TO GIVE HIM THIS TEAM SO HE CAN RUN WITH THESE YOUNG PLAYERS!

WHAT TO WANT BACK:

DRAFT PICKS & EXPIRING CONTRACTS. THAT CAN BE DONE THIS YEAR!

YOUNG ASSETS:

THE DETROIT PISTONS HAVE A LOT OF YOUNG TALENT. GIVE THEM MORE MINUTES AND SEE WHAT YALL GOT FOR THE FUTURE.

WHO I BELIEVE SHOULD BE ON THE: 2018-2019 ALL NBA TEAMS:

MY THOUGHTS:

NOT VERY IMPRESSED BY BOTH PLAYERS LOW SHOOTING WOOS BUT THEY HAD THE BALL IN THEIR HANDS 90% OF THE TIME. DUE TO THEIR HIGH VOLUME OF SHOOTING I WOULD RATE THEIR PERFORMANCES AS A B-.

TRAE YOUNG HAD THE BETTER GAME BUT JAMES HARDEN LEFT WITH THE WIN. 🤷🏾‍♂️

BY THE WAY IF YOU GUESSED IT , NOT MUCH DEFENSIVE WAS PLAYED IN THIS GAME.

AFTER THIS GAME THIS WILL BECOME A NEW STATISTIC. I BELIEVE PLAYERS WILL WANT TO TOP THIS PERFORMANCE!

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:

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

2019-2020: Jimmy Butler Challenge

DOMANTAS SABONIS – A True Low Post Specialist

Has Mike Conoly been this biggest disappointment?

Michael Porter Jr – FREE HIM

MITCHELL ROBINSON- FEED ME MORE (1-1-20)

THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS ARE TANKING!

ANDREW WIGGINS – YOUR TIME IS NOW

DEVONTE’ GRAHAM – EARLY 2019-2020 MIP CANDIDATE
