Many of the Minnesota players left practice energized by Butler's performance, mesmerized with him taking several end-of-the-bench players and running the table in scrimmage games against the regulars, league sources said. After punctuating the final victory at the end of practice, Butler marched out of the gym as though to emphasize he had proved his point, sources said. Coaches and players were largely speechless, league sources said.

Get this man out of Minnesota. They dont deserve him.

The Knicks, at this point they would be better served using the Liberty's roster.

Have to like the Knicks effort. It won't translate into many wins, because the talent isn't there yet.

 

The funniest part of the fight at the Houston/LA game was seeing Carmelo doing his usual woofing act. Fake tough guy.

 

Lakers are having drama already. Funny that both the Lakers and Cavs are winless.

Another silly NBA fight this weekend and as usual no rhyme or reason to the penalties assessed.

 

Chris Paul 2 games...appropriate but I would like one major sports league to apply a standard that if you do not retaliate the aggressor's punishment will be increased.  In this instance if Chris Paul didn't throw a return punch shouldn't Rajon Rondo's and Brandon Ingram's penalty go up by two games each?

 

Rajon Rondo 3 games...ridiculous, the NBA stated he spat on someone and threw a punch and it was the first punch.  Only one extra game of suspension for being that much in the wrong???  I guess there is little to no penalty for spitting.

 

Brandon Ingram 4 games...ludicrous to begin with he deserved to be doubled T'd for his initial reaction.  Obvious foul and his team got the gift of having the basket waived off.  Obviously he wasn't paying attention and his screaming after the call deserved a technical as did his shoving James Harden (not out of the ordinary to also earn a suspension for that behavior.  Inexcusable that after his teammate restrained him and removed him from the dispute that he returned and threw a punch, a sucker punch no less.  8 games minimum 

 

Curious if any involved will appeal, but with such slight penalties why bother unless they try to game their penalties based on the upcoming schedule.

Ty Lue gets fired. This should have happened ages ago. Won't make a difference though The Cavs are done.

Klay is serially overlooked. Wonder if he'll ever get tired of being a supporting act.

Great game achievement by Klay Thompson, but two things to consider 3 All Star shooters on the floor and an atrocious team playing defense.

 

Does Durrant demand his chance to break the 3 pt record next?  It seems they are taking turns.

Speaking of, Kyrie can't get over Murray's late 3pt attempt to get 51pts the other night and he's still talking about it THREE DAYS LATER. lol what a cry baby

 

Glad one Denver team is doing good, Avs aren't bad, either, since Donkies can't win for sh*t.

I have to LOL @ all the Carmelo nut-huggers (on social media) who called me a "hater" when I said Houston got worse when they signed him. He's not a winning player. Carmelo has always been more concerned about stats and his "brand/legacy".

 

 

Just saw this on usatoday.com - Sixers are close to acquiring Kyle Korver from the Cavs.

If the reports are correct that the major reason the Timberwolves agreed to pull the trigger on sending Butler to the Sixers was the rabbit ears of their other stars that team is doomed to be at best a 6th place and done for the foreseeable future.

 

KD it seems wants to follow LeBron in having his own "My Plans for the Future" show after this season's finals.

NBA Rumors: Kevin Durant And Anthony Davis Could Form A Superteam With LeBron James

It looks like LeBron James has finally found a way to turn things around for the Los Angeles Lakers, as the team is currently going through a 4 game winning streak after a sloppy start of the season.

 

Even so, it looks like the Lakers still need to add more firepower come summer 2019.

Rim protection was a huge issue early on for Luke Walton’s team, so names of the likes of Anthony Davis definitely pop in mind right away, although that’s not going to be easy.

 

Moreover, if you’ve been paying attention to the league lately, you know that there’s another top-tier rim protector that’s going to be available in the summer: Kevin Durant.

After all the drama surrounding Durant and Draymond Green, even an unnamed Warriors player stated that there’s simply no way that Durant is coming back next season after what was said in the locker room.

 

So, let’s go step by step here. First, landing Durant would be a piece of cake for the Lakers, a team with such a great winning culture, that has the cap space to get him, that has LeBron as their leader, and that could provide the perfect scenario for Durant to get revenge at the Warriors, and we know loyalty isn’t his forte.

Also, according to Jarrett Jack, there’s a huge possibility that he wants to join LeBron next summer, and let’s all remember that Jack was the first guy KD called when he decided to join the Warriors.

 

On the other hand, the Pelicans aren’t going to be competing any time soon, even despite Davis’ huge efforts. That being said, let’s remember he’s going to be a free agent in 2020 and is a lock to walk away for free unless they trade him prior to that date.

Los Angeles has a young core and the kind of assets every team would love to trade for, as they’re all unproven talents with such a high ceiling that would be worth the risk.

Lonzo, Ingram, Kuzma, Hart; a trade package surrounding 2 or 3 of those young men could be more than enough to land the Brow.

 

LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Kevin Durant, that’s scary.

Yes, you heard me correctly. The King, Durantula and The Brow all playing for the same team. That is what could potentially happen next summer if things go well. Currently, Durant will be a free agent next summer and with all this tension surrounding Golden State, it’s looking more and more like he will leave the Warriors next summer.

Now he's in Philadelphia, and even without knowing the scheme or how to squeeze in him into the late-game plays - he seems to be doing quite well.

I almost feel bad for Minnesota.  Almost.  Butler traded to a team where what he contributes to their almost exactly fits the rest of their needs (still light on the outside shooting), and his all-out style on both sides of the court fit right with the Sixers - especially Embiid.  Those two are going to make some serious  magic together.

LMAO. And to think he was the first "Superman" due respect to Cam Newton.

Do you get two steps and a jump toward the basket when attempting a shot when you dismount from the broom?  Or can you shoot while still on the broom?
