Deron Williams signed to play with Lebron James and traded for Kyle Korver from Atlanta. The question is, will they play better with two new acquisitions? Only thirty games left into the NBA regular season and we have yet seen stand out games from Korver or Williams.
The Sacramento Kings traded DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans for a first round draft pick. Cousins will team up with Anthony Davis of the Pelicans where they hope they will be a nightmare matchup in the 2017 NBA playoffs.
On February 19, Anthony Davis scored the most points and became the Most Valuable Player that day. In a game featuring Eastern All-Stars and Western All-Stars, Davis became a dominant big man in the game of basketball. Now, it’s up to Anthony Davis to make sure that New Orleans doesn’t fade away in the playoffs or come the final thirty games of the regular season.
Kevin Durant and Draymond Green are having a little splat playing basketball together. Durant likes to take his own jump-shots, apart from playing with team ball with Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry, and Draymond Green. The Warriors are useless when they don’t utilize Thompson and Curry for their shots, especially three pointers. Draymond likes to pump up the Golden State Warriors for their defense. Durant does play defense, but doesn’t like to defer to Green for defensive assignments. What is there to do for Durant and Green to co-exist?
It is the new year and All-Star weekend is approaching in New Orleans moved from Charlotte. I am excited to see these NBA stars such as LeBron James, Giannis Antetokuonmpo, Anthony Davis, and Stephen Curry starting in the 2017 All-Star Game. I’d like to see a fantastic showcase featuring these basketball players on February 19, 2017.
The NBA is going insane now. What is going on? Stephen Curry isn’t his usual self making and hoisting those long three pointers, although his Warriors are on a roll. Draymond Green is his dominant self, making a claim for NBA Defensive Player of the Year. Can Jason Kidd’s Milwaukee Bucks make a claim down the stretch for this year’s NBA title? Maybe.
2017 is upon us and we are almost approaching the halfway part of the season. With February looming, we will have an all star game. The Golden State Warriors are leading the NBA with wins and losses and it is hard to beat them when they have Kevin Durant. The Cleveland Cavaliers, who are the 2016 reigning champions, beat these newly formed Warriors with Kevin Durant 109-108 on Christmas Day on Kyrie Irving’s last minute shot.
