The Shocking Truth about the Cleveland Cavaliers

cavs.png

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. New York Knicks. First game back after the All Star game. NBA Trade Deadline Day. Carmel Anthony vs. LeBron James. Brother vs. Brother. Homie vs. Homie. Charles Oakley in the building. The game is at the Quick Loan Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Crowd is hype. Looks like LeBron is ready to get this second half of the season ready. New York Knicks has an early lead. Knicks playing good defense to begin with. You can’t let Carmelo set his feet, that’s nothing but net. Courtney Lee playing good too that’s a boost for the Knicks.

cavs1The Cavaliers (also known as Cavs) went on a run late first quarter. The run started with LeBron open court dunk, then a put back dunk by Tristan Thompson, the Canadian, the rebounding X-factor machine. He finished with a Double-double: 10 points and 14 rebounds. Then, the Cavs just started pouring down 3’s from Kyle Korver and Richard Jefferson. Cavs came back from being down early with their fire power run. Carmelo Anthony made a buzzer beater 3 at the end of the first quarter, but it didn’t count. Cavs leads 34-33 at the end of the 1st quarter. LeBron balling in the second quarter and the Cavs took the lead. The blow out and beat down was about to begin.

Cavs looking their normal self; they just had to get it right and oh boy, they are clicking. Kristaps Porzingis left the game with a sprain ankle; he should be okay. Carmelo Anthony finished with 20 points. Kyrie Irving and LeBron James taking this game over. The game was over in the 4th quarter, for real. Blow out as you can say. LeBron James had a Triple-double. Cavs finished strong at home. LeBron straight glassing Courtney Lee, a run down glass too. LOL, geeesh. Kyrie Irving dropped 23 points and LeBron James finished with 18 points, 15 assist and 13 rebounds — straight A glassing. A big game. 48th Career Triple-double. Cavs won, 119-104.

Ways to Give New Orleans Pelican Fans Advice to be Patient with their New team

nola.png

If you thought the Pelicans were going to ball out and be a good team after they got DeMarcus Cousins, well, not just YET as it is a work in progress. The Pelicans got straight blow out. First game after the All Star game and the Pelicans still celebrating the trade winner they got. 129-99, Houston Rockets won. Anthony Davis (29 points) and DeMarcus Cousins (27points) will get it together. Both players played well with dropping over 20 points. It is a team game and they need the other pieces to step up too. Give them some time to get the groove going on. This is more of progress and getting to know each other tendencies on the court.

The first game at the Smoothie King Arena was one to get better from. I nola1know people thinking the New Orleans Pelicans will just be a good team all of a sudden. It doesn’t change over night. The Houston Rockets is a good team. James Harden, having an MVP season, leading his team right. You already know he was going to ball even if he doesn’t score a lot of points. He had a Double-double: 13 points and 14 assists. The whole Rockets team played well, especially newly acquired shooting guard Lou Williams. Willians who was from the Los Angeles Lakers. The baller. Auto-microwave making 7 of 11 3’s in his debut. That man can score a basketball. He had 27 points during the game.

nola2.pngThe Pelicans will be getting better, so they are getting their chemistry together. I mean, I didn’t know how the two big man were going to play together. Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins looks like they are capable of balling together. The question is, does the coaching staff have to be able to capitalize on each of the star skills set and dominate? The coaching staff starts with the head coach, Alvin Gentry, so he has to formulate a plan for the team to succeed. The coaching staff will play a big role in the success of the New Orleans Pelicans. They got 20 plus games left, so we will see what they got with those games. New Team. Trusting each other. Basketball is back. Big Man. Basketball Night. 😀

How the Warriors had a Record Setting Night

0223.1.pngThe game on Thursday night looked like the Golden State Warriors were going to fight against the Los Angeles Clippers to the end. The rivalry goes several years back with the Clippers talking smack; so now the Golden State Warriors zipped them up (almost every time they play now). Clippers playing good for now in the 1st half. Clippers, without Chris Paul, was still leading big at half time, 61-49. The Clippers had the lead up to 16 points. You know the Clippers playing good when Blake Griffin shooting and making 3’s. This is a rivalry game, you can tell with the technical fouls (4 techs) and the Warriors took a while to get their engine running. They went off in the 3rd quarter. Curry making 3’s and shaking and baking to the rim. Stephen Curry making 3 and getting fouled. Five 3’s for Curry so far, and dancing doing it. Kevin Durant scoring 15 points in the 3rd quarter shooting 6 for 7.

0223.2.png

Warriors scoring 50 points in the 3rd quarter.  The first 50-point quarter since March of 2014, when the Knicks played the Lakers. Lakers scored 51 on the Knicks; but this record-setting night as this is unlikely to drop 50 in a quarter. Stephen Curry had 35 points by the end of the 3rd. Curry making a buzzer beating 3 to end the third quarter. A 31-footer buzzer beater for Curry. 20 points and 5 3’s in the third quarter alone for Stephen Curry. The Golden State Warriors scored 99 points by the end of the 3rd with a quarter left. I must say, they had 49 points at half time. High power offense.

The Golden State Warriors took over the game in the 3rd quarter. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant Show. Los Angeles Clippers played in this rivalry game. The Warriors has too much offense. Mid-way through the fourth quarter, the game looks over. Warriors had a record-breaking second half. Warriors finally woke up. Draymond Green must have gave his high emotion half time speech. Curry shooting was a big reason the game was high scoring. Stephen Curry long 3’s and he got the range for days. Curry made 6 3’s by the way. Shout out for Shaun Livingston palm blocking Clippers Forward, Marreese Speights. Warriors had a good game as they shined at home in the Oracle Arena  — another record game. Warriors won, 123-113. They look good. Warriors won the season series 4-0.

LA Lakers Making Moves: Jeanie Buss and Magic Johnson making BIG Changes in Los Angeles

lalakers.png

You thought the DeMarcus Cousins deal after the All Star Game was the biggest thing? NOTTTT. Lakers are topping that with Jeanie Buss cleaning out the front office with taking the basketball duties away from her brother, Jim Buss. Mitch Kupchak, the great general manager for the Lakers for years and a former Los Angeles Lakers player,  is also going to be replaced as well. The Clean Out is real. Magic Johnson is in charge now and the Lakers are about to be relevant again. Free agents are coming to Los Angeles this summer. Expect big names and Magic will make it happen. Lakers are about to do it big; we will see.

lalakers1This clean out was coming for a while and Jeanie Buss making it happen. I bet Los Angeles Lakers Fans are ecstatic right now. Happy as they can be. Magic Johnson being the President of Basketball Operations is a good move since he knows basketball. I mean, the man is a legend and one of the greatest basketball minds ever. Los Angeles Lakers are in good hands. Lakers’ fans got the answers they need. Lakers’ fans should thank Jeanie Buss and Magic Johnson. Who knows Phil Jackson might come back to the Lakers too. On that thought, she clean house with Phil Jackson too. They are not together anymore. Some one got her fire up today. You go girl! Making changes. Changes are for the good, sometimes. So we will see. Think Positive. Greatness is coming back to the Los Angeles Lakers with the basketball moves made. Los Angeles Lakers’ fans, I know, I know, you all are 😀 right now.

lalakers2.png

Even better, the Los Angeles Lakers have some good young players. Julius Randle, D’ Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Lance Jr. (his father played in the NBA, Larry Lance, a high tall flyer himself and you can see lalakers3why his son got the ups from) and Brandon Ingram. Wait to they develop and get some Star Players around them. Their record is not good this year and Luke Walton, the young coach, will have to have some time to get some veteran players and develop this young players. With the Free Agent Star or Stars they might pick up this summer. The Lakers might be taking Los Angeles back from the Los Angeles Clippers. Magic is running the Shows in Los Angeles now; as he did when he was the Point Guard at 6 feet 9 inches of the Lakers, when he was the leader of the Show Time Lakers in the 80’s. Greatness. Big Move. Legend Status.Woman Power. Improvement. Brainy Versatility.

What is your take regarding this news? Will Magic gonna do his “magic” to have the Lakers on top of the game? Or is just another big news but no context to it? Tell me your thoughts, comment below.

DeMarcus Cousins and All Star MVP Anthony Davis Teaming up for a Playoff Run in New Orleans: Do you think they can play along side each other and be successful this season and beyond?

cousins1.png

MVP All Star Anthony Davis sure did get a good gift after hearing the New Orleans Management got DeMarcus Cousins from the Sacramento Kings in a trade after All Star Sunday. I mean, the trade didn’t really make much sense. I know the Sacramento Kings didn’t want to pay DeMarcus Cousins for 5 years and 209 million dollar this off-season. DeMarcus Cousins has maturity problems and he can be emotional. I guess, the Sacramento Kings Front Office wanted a “culture change” (as they say). I guess, they don’t believe in him to be the “franchise player”. Vlade Divac, the General Manager for the Sacramento Kings, didn’t look too confident about in his press conference. I don’t know about this trade. I mean, DeMarcus Cousins is the best big man in the NBA for a trade like this. I mean…uhhh???????? I know Kings’ fans confuse. I would say, its okay (LOL) but pat on the shoulder. Pelicans got DeMarcus Cousins. New Orleans and Pelicans Fans is still buzzing from the All Star Game.

cousins2.png

The Sacramento Kings will get 3 guards: Shooting Guard Buddy Hield, Point Guard/Shooting Guard and Small Forward Tyreke Evans who used to play for and got drafted by the Sacramento Kings. Guard Langston Galloway and a first and second round pick in the 2017 Draft from the Pelicans. The New Orleans Pelicans will get Big man DeMarcus and Small Forward Omri Casspi. The deal says it all. This was the news after the All Star Game. They surprised Boogie aka DeMarcus Cousins. I don’t know like you can do way better than that. Lets think positive; though it is a culture change alright.

cousins3.png

The question is, since DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis are on the same team now, would they play well together? Will they win some playoffs? Will they make a playoff run now? Will they make the playoff to begin with? I know with this trade, people will think the New Orleans Pelicans will be a good team, BUT slow your roll, they still need players around them. I am not sure how they going to play around each other. I want to see how this is going to work out. And the New Orleans Pelicans got to show DeMarcus Cousins this will work if they want to re-sign him this off-season. But…hmmm…they are way below. 500 and at 23-34 records? Lets see what they can do. Lets see what Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins will do. DeMarcus Cousins is close to home in Alabama; so maybe him being close to home will be good for him. Lets see what happens.
