Published

on

First round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs are set to begin Saturday, April 14th.  

After a one of the most unforgettable seasons that included; Kyrie Irving requesting to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers following another loss in the Finals to the Golden State Warriors, one of the top 3 league leaders in PPG of the previous season Isaiah Thomas (28.9 ppg) suiting up for 3 teams in less than 8 months, Paul George & Carmelo Anthony joining Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City, Gordon Hayward getting injured in his first game after being acquired by the Boston Celtics in the summer, Chris Paul joining forces with James Harden for a record-setting year for the Houston Rockets, trusting the process leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a #3 seed in the Eastern Conference, a trade deadline move that included the Cavaliers trading away half of their roster.. literally (D-Wade, D. Rose, Jae Crowder, I.T., Shump, and Channing Frye), lots of LaVar Ball, & Russ averaging a triple-double for a second consecutive season to cap it all off!

It is finally time to get down to business, playoff time! Will LeBron make his 8th consecutive Finals appearance and does he has enough to win it? Will the Warriors heal in time to repeat? Is the year James Harden shows up and propels his team to the Finals? Is OKC's Big 3 enough to take Melo & PG13 to the Finals for the first time? Will Toronto finally make it past LeBron? Only time will tell. 

Who do you have making it to the finals, and who do you have ultimately winning it all? Check out the first-round schedule below.

Los Angeles Lakers Reportedly Make Every Player Available in Trades Except LeBron James

Published

on

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost 6 of their last 10 games and have fell to 9th place in the western conference. With LeBron James still battling an alleged sports hernia injury, that’s had him out the last 6 weeks; LA is worried about their season. After the trade, we’ll report a bizarre trade that involved two superstars last weekend – but was shut down after the Lonzo Ball injury.

Magic Johnson, Rob Pelinka, Kobe Bryant and LeBron are now officially in panic-mode. The team has reportedly made every player on the team, except LeBron James (and client Kentavious Caldwell-Pope) available for trades. The deadline is next Thursday, February 7th at 3:00pm ET; as we expect the team to make a slew of deals that won’t include Anthony Davis.

Since their New Orleans deal is dead, the team is now focused on adding superstars through free agency. So, they’re planning to trade Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram.

With the Lake Show blueprinting things out, the likes of Terrence Ross, Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington, and Garrett Temple are veteran three-point shooters the team wants to add.

James who turned 34 last month, he’s suffered his first major injury, which we don’t expect to heal this season. From our examination of LeBron, he’s looking slower and has no major lift any more.

Now that his athleticism is gone and he never developed fundamentals (consistent post-scoring, off-ball play, free-throws etc); we’re not sure if this is right move to make.

Let us know in the comments if you’d trade players for the short-term

per ESPN

After a standoff that has stretched into the first part of the season, the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to trade Jimmy Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

Butler and the Sixers expect to reach a deal on a long-term contract this summer, league sources told ESPN. The Sixers made the trade to add Butler to a Big Three with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

The Timberwolves will receive a package that includes Robert CovingtonDario SaricJerryd Bayless and a second-round pick, sources said, and Minnesota will also send Justin Patton to Philadelphia.

Butler, who is expected to become a free agent after this season, requested a trade prior to Timberwolves media day in September. He ultimately reported to the team and was averaging 21.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game for the 4-9 Timberwolves.

Once the trade is complete, the Timberwolves may waive Bayless, but the team is still considering its options, sources said.

The Sixers' odds to win the NBA title have improved from 30-1 to 16-1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and their odds to win the Eastern Conference went from 7-1 to 3-1.
