Has the path been cleared for the Warriors?
Last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers agreed to a trade that had Kyrie Irving sent to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder, along with Ante Zizic and Brooklyn's first round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. The Cavs seem to the loser here, since they lost arguably the clutchest player in the league in Kyrie, and gained an offensive threat in Thomas, but at the same time one of the biggest defensive liabilities in the league due to his low defensive IQ and small stature. Yes they also received Jae Crowder, who should help LeBron get more rest now that he has a good replacement from the bench, but Crowder can't create his own shot, which gives Cleveland another player who depends on LeBron or, from now on, Thomas or Rose. Zizic won't even play, and Brooklyn's pick will be great, but LeBron might not be with the team the following season. Now, the clear favorite Golden State has an easier Finals to win, although the West got stronger with Houston, Minnesota, and OKC getting a new superstar for their squads. Still, I see the Warriors making the NBA Finals once again and this time could even sweep the final series. #nba#basketball#goldenstate#warriors#kevindurant#kd#stephcurry#35#30#dubnation#nbachampions#nbafinals#cleveland#cavaliers#cavs#lebronjames#lbj#kyrieirving#isaiahthomas#jaecrowder#derrickrose#drose#2018#nbadraft#sweep
Free agent tracker:
Remaining free agents (Celtics have 2 extra roster spots)
Isaiah Canaan: had a couple good seasons in Philly averaging 12.6 PPG. One of my favorite players.
Nerlens Noel: Good all around player with a lot of potential. stats: 8.7 PPG 5.8 RPG
Shabazz Muhammed: Great offensive player and agrresive scorer who averaged 9 PPG last season coming off the bench for the T-wolves.
Nikola Mirotic: 3 point sniper who had an off year and averaged 10 PPG, decent stretch four.
Comment down below who you would want to see on the Celtics as well as what you think about the recent trade... just comment whatever the heck you want👇
During his freshman year with Michigan State, Green admittedly didn't have much of an impact with the team at first. However, during the school's tournament run, his performance significantly improved. He continued to improve his play in sophomore year, when he appeared in the same number of games and saw his stats basically double. By a unanimous vote, Green ended up being named Big Tenth Six Man of the year during this time. (This would make him the first person in Michigan State history to hold this honor.)
Draymond ended his career with Michigan State on a high note. He continued his trend of remarkable play, and headed over to the NBA Draft where he then got picked up by The Golden State Warriors with the second round, 35th pick. The rest is history... @money23green
