This season will be defined by … How things shake out in Los Angeles. The Lakers brought in LeBron James last season and still missed the postseason, so this time around they traded for Anthony Davis. They had hoped to add Kawhi Leonard and become the new Golden State Warriors. Then the Clippers not only added Leonard but Paul George. Now the Lakers may not even be the best team in their own building. HF The end of the superteam era means the first legitimately wide-open title race in years. The star-studded paradigm favored by the Celtics, Heat and Warriors over the last decade has given way to a two-star model co-opted by more than a dozen NBA teams. Increased league-wide parity promises an improved nightly product and a much-needed injection of suspense at the business end. BAG Duos. The regular season will mirror the offseason, with the NBA’s best duos dominating the headlines in the same way they did this summer. Leonard and George with the Clippers, James and Davis … [Read more...] about NBA 2019-20 predictions: The rise of Los Angeles and the era of the super duos

Tristan Thompson was spotted shooting hoops with an NBA rival ahead of the upcoming Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode which will show his cheating drama with Jordyn Woods unfold. The Cleveland Cavaliers center seemed relaxed as he and Portland Trail Blazers point guard Seth Curry were practiced at USA Mega Fitness in Reseda, California earlier this week. A source tells DailyMailTV that Thompson, 28, entered the gym with his 'associates' around 10.30am where he was practicing with a shooting coach. About an hour later 28-year-old Seth Curry - the younger brother of Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry - walked in alone with a gallon of water in hand. 'As soon Seth walked in, Tristan went to other side of the court to allow Seth to dribble and shoot in the half court, where Tristan had started working out at first,' they said.

Coming in the same playoffs as Portland’s Damian Lillard’s 37-foot heave to eliminate the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kawhi Leonard’s four-bounce buzzer beater on Sunday night will live on as one of basketball’s greatest buzzer beaters. What else are the greatest moments that occurred as the clock struck zero? We have five (along with some honorable mentions) to conjure memories of the times when nobody could quite believe what they had just seen. 1) “The Minneapolis Miracle”, 14 January 2018 In nine years the Minnesota Vikings had won a total of zero playoff games. And it took a miracle for them to snap that streak. Minnesota trailed 24-23 with 10 seconds left, no timeouts remaining and the ball spotted at their own 39-yard-line. To keep the clock from expiring, quarterback Case Keenum found sure-handed wideout Stefon Diggs, who intended to catch the ball and immediately run out of bounds to stop the clock. New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Williams … [Read more...] about Was Kawhi Leonard’s buzzer beater the best game killer in sports history?
The ‘Tank For Tua Bowl’ on Sunday moved the Miami Dolphins a step closer to their goal – the No1 overall pick in next year’s NFL draft and a ticket to salvation, likely through Alabama’s star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Despite almost blowing the whole deal with some late and unadvertised Fitzmagic against Washington, the Dolphins successfully progressed to 0-5 and remain on track to be the best at being the worst. However, Sunday’s other games offered a cautionary note for the Dolphins. Entering the 2015 draft, neither the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans could lose, thanks to losing a whole lot. With two electrifying Heisman Trophy-winning QBs up for grabs, the Bucs took Florida State’s Jameis Winston first overall, while the Titans selected Marcus Mariota of Oregon with the second pick. After months of debate over which sure thing should go No 1, both teams had surely locked down the game’s most important position for a … [Read more...] about Mariota and Winston struggles show the flaws in Dolphins’ tanking plan
