Kawhi Leonard and Paul George going to the Clippers balanced the NBA for the next few years. THANK GAWD.
Now there are no more super teams and “Big 3’s.” Just a league filled with two-player tandoms. This excites me to no end that the NBA will be extremely entertaining next season. The past 4 years everyone knew it was going to be the Warriors in the finals. THANK YOU KAWHI, YOU DYNASTY KILLER.
With that being said here’s the top 10 duos of the NBA next year. (Baring anymore blockbuster trades)
Did I miss anyone? Not agree? Comment below on your thoughts.
Since June 30th at 6PM, all Lakers fans have dreamed about seeing Kawhi Leonard suit up in the Purple and Gold and play along side LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Every Lakers fan has Adrian Wojnarowski tweet alerts turned on right now, waiting for the moment Woj, bombs us with the Kawhi news.
I’m here to tell you that the Lakers do not need Kawhi Leonard to win the 2020 NBA Championship. They need Matthew Dellavedova. The Curry Killer. Delly is the elite back-court defender the Lakers need to contend with the Western Conference guards. With guards such as Lilliard, Westbrook, Conley, Harden, CP3, and many more, the Lakers HAVE to have this asset.
Jeanie Buss, Rob Pelinka, and LeBron James’s camp need to put Kawhi aside and focus on Delly. I guarantee if the Lakers were to sign Delly, they would hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy next year.
“Because he’s the hero Los Angeles deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.”
This is completely satire. I hope the Lakers are able to pull off getting the Klaw, for LeBron’s legacy’s sake. On a real note, I do think Delly would be a great fit for the team as a role player no matter if they get Kawhi or not.
NBA commissioner, Adam Silver, has had enough of fans burning players jerseys. “I fucking hate it. It’s a disgrace to the League, the to players, and to the player’s former team.” The internet trend of burning jerseys started when LeBron James made his “Decision” to take his talents to South Beach and play for the Miami Heat. Cleveland Cavaliers fans burned his #23 jersey in displeasure of James’s move.
Kevin Durant also received the same hate when he decided to join the 73-9 Warriors making the NBA completely unwatchable and boring. (This one’s well deserved)
To kill this trend, Silver has made an agreement with Nike and Fanatics to sell “unburnable” jerseys. Jersey’s put on the market will now have a special fabric used by firefighters that is able to withstand intense heat for hours at a time. Because of this special fabric, jersey’s will now run for $400 each.
Silver hopes that this will limit the amount of hate some players receive when they make a move to another team.
So next time you’re favorite player decides to sign elsewhere, be happy for the guy that’s doing something to better himself instead of being a narcissistic asshole and burning that $120 jersey you bought last year for your kid so you can get 5 retweets on your lame meme account.
The Los Angeles Lakers have a golden opportunity to acquire 4 top tier talents this summer. The four big “K’s” Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, and Klay Thompson would come to LA in the biggest blockbuster trade in the history of sports. Danny Ainge and the Celtics get another young talent, Kyle Kuzma, to replace their already departing point guard, Kyrie. The Warriors get powerhouse big-man and World Champion JaVale McGee. And the Raptors get convict, Kentavius Caldwell-Pope and Reggie Bullock for rent-a-player, Kawhi Leonard. These four are all leaving, just the fact that each team gets SOMETHING out of them leaving, should make them happy.
Just imagine having the starting five of Kyrie, Kawhi, LeBron, KD, and AD with Klay Thompson as the sixth man. There’s 5+ years of championship caliber basketball back in the Staples center. Each of the starters can take turns in winning the MVP each year. Klay would win the Sixth Man of the Year award EVERY year. It’s a no-brainer for each clubhouse.
Obviously this doesn’t happen. But a man can dream, right?
