Generally speaking, I like the idea of using one two-way contract to get a closer look at a long-term prospect and the other for insurance at a positional weakness. There are a few players who could go undrafted or late second round — where the Warriors currently have two picks — with significant upside, but […]
GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO WEEK 21 AND 22 FANTASY OUTLOOK Giannis Antetokounmpo is projected for 97.5 fantasy points in 2 games the rest of week which is good enough to be the #4 ranked forward and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per […]
A mid-seed team destined to die out in the second round doesn’t want to commit to a salary like Paul’s. But Miami has proven to be potentially lot more than that. With the season hanging in limbo due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Heat reside in the Eastern Conference’s No. 4 playoff spot. They […]
Antetokounmpo has downplayed a feud with Harden, but it’s tough to believe Antetokounmpo hasn’t found extra motivation against the Rockets – or even Harden’s All-Star team. Likewise, Antetokounmpo could have a little more juice when the Bucks next face Boston.
Antetokounmpo isn’t likely to be a first-rounder in the NBA Draft, but he could be an intriguing developmental option for an NBA team looking to draft and stash the 20-year-old who has shown some promise and potential but isn’t likely to be an immediate contributor at the highest level of the sport.
There is no indication, however, that Antetokounmpo is about to stagnate. He has improved significantly as Milwaukee has given him more responsibility, and he has the tools to be a franchise player. This is a 6-foot-11 point forward who can get from the 3-point line to the basket with just two of his long strides. […]
Usually a big trade produces winners and losers, but both executives at the top of this list — Presti and Frank — were involved in the same blockbuster deal this offseason that sent Paul George to the Clippers. Both teams made other big moves as well, with the Clippers adding Kawhi Leonard and the Thunder […]
There is a lot of time these days to ponder the deeper, or older, questions of the game. If a staged event of HORSE between NBA and WNBA players from their self-isolated outdoor courts can become a television event, we certainly have plenty of film to debate Jordan vs. LeBron, to talk the would-have-been, could-have-beens […]
They buy a team with a potentially good core of young players — Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson, Larry Sanders, plus this year’s draft pick — that could develop into an interesting team in a few years with the right management and coach. And if they start to win they will sell out any new building.
Kawhi Leonard’s scoring (26.9 ppg) and shooting (46.9%) are also on par with his production last season in Toronto. Paul George also has been solid. But teams, including the Lakers, have been able to take advantage of Lou Williams at times in the pick-and-roll. That’s something coach Doc Rivers will need to figure out.
