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)

19-20 EAST & WEST ALL STAR RESERVES

EAST RESERVES:

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.

2019-2020 – Houston Identity Change?

SHOULD THE HOUSTON ROCKETS ALLOW RUSSELL WESTBROOK TO BE THIS TEAMS LEAD CATALYST?

I WOULD SAY YES. ALLOW RUSSELL WESTBROOK TO RUN THIS TEAM AND BE THEIR LEADER. JAMES HARDEN IS A GREAT SCORER BUT HE HAS NEVER SHOWN US GREAT LEADERSHIP SKILLS.

NBA CHAMPIONSHIP HOPES:

I BELIEVE JAMES HARDEN SHOULD REEL IT BACK WITH HIS USUAGE AND ALLOW FOR HIS ROLE PLAYERS TO GET MORE TOUCHES. BECAUSE IN ORDER TO WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP EVERYONE ON THE TEAM NEEDS TO EAT AND BE COMFORTABLE WITHIN THEIR ROLE.

WESTBROOK LAST FEW GAMES:

EARLY THIS SEASON:

HARDEN AVERAGING CLOSE TO 40 POINTS IS AMAZING AND ALL BUT IF YOU WANT TO WIN A NBA CHAMPIONSHIP. I THINK THIS OPTION WILL BE BEST FOR HIM AND THE TEAM. JAMES HARDEN SHOULD CONCEDE HIS TO SCORING NUMBERS TO AROUND 30 POINTS PER GAME.

SAVE THAT SCORING FOR THE PLAYOFFS WHEN YOUR TEAM NEEDS YOU!

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!

FOR JAMES HARDEN THIS WAS HIS FIRST TRIPLE DOUBLE OF THIS SEASON. MAYBE THE BRAIDS ARE BRINGING HIM DIFFERENT ENERGY. BUT HE IS STARTING OFF THE NEW YEAR WHERE HE LEFT OFF LAST YEAR. DROPPING 40POINTS ON OPPONENTS LIKE IT IS NOTHING….

HE IS THE MOST COMPLETE OFFENSE PLAYER IN TODAYS GAME.
