NBA 2K14

July 16, 2014

Observations surrounding the NBA draft, rookie summer league, and free agency.

1) If the Warriors don’t wake up and get over their overblown love of Klay Thompson they are going to be sorry.  Trading your 3rd or 4th best player for a top 10 guy in the NBA is a NO BRAINER!! I like Klay but if you get Love and Curry together that is the most explosive 1-2 scoring punch in the NBA.  If they let Love get traded to Cleveland they better look at their fingers right now because that’s the total number of rings they will have for the next 10 years.

2) Noah Vonleh is the next Chris Bosh.  Steal for the Hornets.

3)  I really like Jrue Holliday’s brother Justin who is playing summer league for the Warriors.  He has a great shot, can penetrate and knows how to pass.  Scouts say he needs to add a little weight but then again, so do I.

4) Pau Gasol definitely makes the Bulls the favorites in the East.  Lebron makes Cleveland a contender but they are nowhere near as deep as the Bulls.  Rookie Doug McDermott and Euro star Nikola Mirotic are additional additions to Chicago that make them versatile and very dangerous. Derrick Rose stays healthy and they should be in the finals.

5) The Clippers might be the most talented team in the league.  Unfortunately, they are also the team with the biggest a-holes.  From the whining of Blake Griffin and thuggery of Matt Barnes, to the constant referee working of Chris Paul, this team is full of players who don’t focus enough on the game.  Stop the whining and attempted intimidation.  Play the game and you might make it out of the 2nd round.

6) This was the first time in 5 years I’ve missed the summer league in person.  Steph Curry vs. Tyreke was the first game I ever went to and I’m not sure any of the summer league games have lived up to the hype.

Looking forward to another great NBA season.

Have a good night and drive home safely.
