We’ve got another older college player off the board, this time it’s a junior in Carsen Edwards who took his role as lead scoring guard with Purdue to the umpteenth degree.
The Milwaukee Bucks had a shot, a real shot, at making the NBA Finals. They were the best team in the NBA all season long, and rolled through the first and second round of the playoffs to make their first Eastern Conference Finals since 2001. And once there, they took the first two games against the Toronto Raptors and were in prime position to keep the run going.
It’s been two days since the Los Angeles Lakers started engaging in trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans for Anthony Davis and so far, there’s no reason to believe the Lakers aren’t the favorites to land the 26-year-old, six-time All-Star. However, if there was one reason to be pessimistic about the Lakers’ chance of landing A.D., it would probably start with the team’s front office — namely general manager Rob Pelinka.
Well, now that the NBA Finals are over, we’re heading full steam into the offseason, which means get ready for lots of rumors, especially with the Houston Rockets reportedly putting their entire team outside of James Harden on the trading block and the fact that the team has no draft picks this season and would like to get a pick back at some point.
The 2019 NBA Finals ended just as cruel as it played, with an entirely anti-climactic finish in what could have been one of the most memorable moments in NBA history. After Kevin Durant tore his Achilles in Game 5 and Klay Thompson suffered a serious knee injury in Game 6, the Warriors had the Raptors right where they wanted — down just one point with 9.6 seconds to play and the ball. In front of a home crowd in their final viewing at Oracle Arena, Steph Curry caught the ball from deep and launched a three-pointer look that could only have been scripted better by Shonda Rhimes.
