As Durant said himself, Miami had more to lose. I guess the MVP was not trying to win?

KEVIN DURANT, SEATTLE STEALTH WIN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP

Image Image

June 21, SEATTLE – After years of playoff heartbreak, the Seattle Stealth finally have an NBA championship.

“It was a long time coming,” a teary and battle-weary Jason Kidd told sideline reporters as confetti fell from the rafters, “Kevin (Durant), Coach (George Karl), the manager (Will Sit) and the team have been through a lot. We knew that our time would come… it just took a little longer than expected.”

As the buzzer sounded in the 122-101 win in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, the Stealth players leapt off the bench and ran to the middle of the court to celebrate. NBA MVP and Finals MVP Kevin Durant (27.9 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 3.3 apg for the series) didn’t join his teammates as he ran to the baseline in front of the stand where a contingency of diehard Durant fans were giving him a rousing ovation. As they chanted, “Kevin, Kevin, Kevin”, Durant cupped his hand to his ears and then put his index finger in the air.

The Miami Heat nearly spoiled the Stealth’s fairy tale finish to a great season as they opened the game with a 13-2 run. Durant missed his first three shots and was in foul trouble early in the game. The Stealth were not in sync and had it not been for Chinese forward and substitute Mingyu Li, then the champions could have been the Heat.

Li came off the bench to knock down three shots to score 7 of his 11 points in an important 3 minute stretch to end the first period. He ended the quarter with a three pointer off the dribble, which seemed to energise his teammates coming out of the quarter break. The Stealth played a much better second quarter as they evened the score with both teams locked at 51-51 at halftime.

“Mingyu really saved us out there,” Coach Karl smiled at the podium interview, “We’ve encouraged him to really take advantage of his shooting skills out on the floor. We needed a lift from him especially because of the fact that our other (David) Lee wasn’t on the court.”

The third quarter then belonged to Durant who scored 15 of his 37 points. Durant was unstoppable as he scored on an array of moves to the hoop as well as deep in the half court. “You just can’t stop him,” Wade told the media, “I don’t know what to say. He’s the best player in the NBA. He deserves the title as much as it stings me to say it.”

Seattle didn’t pull away with the win until the fourth quarter. The Stealth entered that period with an 84-79 advantage and it was NBA veteran and future Hall-of-Famer Allen Iverson who helped to seal the deal. Iverson scored 10 of his 16 points in the first 6 minutes of the fourth period. “Just like old times,” Kidd marvelled at his teammate, “Iverson is the most fiery basketball player I have ever played with or against. His heart is bigger than even (Michael) Jordan’s.”

Durant wasn’t done yet as he added point after point to his total in the fourth quarter. He finally took a seat to MVP chants with 2:16 left in the game and his team comfortably ahead. Durant had 5 rebounds and 4 assists to go with his 37 points (16-20 shooting). He missed just 1 shot over three quarters and boasted that he had promised to deliver a title to Seattle. “This is my team baby,” he addressed the stadium, “That’s why I put everything I had on the floor tonight.”

Future Hall-of-Famer had one of his best games of his career in a game that has redefined his standing as one of the All-Time greats. Kidd’s 19 points and 17 assists will surely never be broken again as he became the oldest player to ever record a double double in an NBA Finals game at the age of 41. “This is the sweetest win of my career,” he exclaimed as he held back tears addressing the crowd.

The injured Andrew Bogut continued to impose his dominance despite a heel injury as he put up 27 points, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks. The Australian big is convinced that Stealth fans are looking at a possible dynasty, “Even if Jason and Allen retired today, I am pretty sure we have the depth to continue title runs for the next four or five years,” Bogut said, “I’m very excited we got over the hump.”

Young superstar shooting guard Reshawn Tyson added to his collection of championships. He noted that he was over the moon about beating college rival Moses Chara to an NBA title after their battles in the college game whilst he was with the Tar Heels and Chara played for the Blue Devils. “I struggled tonight a little bit but what matters most is the win,” Tyson who finished with 9 points and 7 assists said.

Wade (23 points), JR Smith (22 points) and Michael Beasley (20 points) were gracious in defeat. “They deserve it,” Wade said. Smith added his congratulations as he retreated from the arena, “This is one helluva a team. I think they were underachievers for a long time so it’s about time they performed well.” Beasley noted, “This is always the hardest city to play in. This team is going to be strong for years to come.”

After David Stern presented the Larry O’Brien trophy to Coach Karl, the noise in the arena nearly brought the roof down. “Seattle will be partying for months now,” Coach Karl joked.

The best moment of the night might have been David Lee being helped onto the podium by Rocky Akonnor and Li. Lee left his crutches courtside but had his teammates to support him to stay standing throughout the trophy presentation.

It was also fitting that General Manager and former Head Coach Will Sit addressed the crowd, “When I assembled this team, I knew we had the right people to bring a championship here. It was only a matter of time and this organisation is blessed to have such great fan support. And to think that David Stern wanted to move the franchise to Oklahoma City!”

It was a feel-good moment when League MVP and Finals MVP Kevin Durant celebrated in front of some of his biggest fans at the conclusion of his team’s Game 7 win. The happy feelings continued as pictures of his teammates embracing at half court were beamed live to the nation. You could feel the spirit of Jason Kidd and Allen Iverson as they congratulated each other on their first NBA titles at the end of their careers. Stealth manager Will Sit’s vision paid dividends as he resisted pulling the trigger on breaking up the team numerous times over the past two years. It was overall a great moment in NBA history especially for Seattle but what comes next?

The future may not be so clear-cut for the NBA’s newly crowned champs. Seattle has an aging roster with quite possibly the most ancient point guard starter and backup in NBA history. There are also question marks over the durability of the existence of the team’s top two scorers as well as whether the Head Coach will be in the game too much longer.

This upcoming offseason is really going to define whether the NBA champions will have what it takes to contend for another title.

Kevin Durant and Reshawn Tyson

    There have been stories of locker room bust-ups and everyone can tell that the NBA’s best player is not happy about his sidekick. The problem is that the sidekick has sometimes looked a lot sharper and more valuable to the team than the leader of the pack. Tyson is as valuable as Durant is to the team’s future especially with the team’s high chances of losing its best distributor (yes, Kidd is the team’s best distributor). Tyson can do it all on both ends of the floor and is only entering his prime now. A Durant-Tyson duo is as lethal as the MJ-Pippen duo from the 1990s.

    However, who do you choose when it all gets turned upside down? If either one of those players demanded that the other get traded; who do you choose to keep?

    Durant is the reigning MVP and has proven to be one of the best scorers of all-time. If he tried, there’s no doubt he could score 100 points in a game. He is that good. Did you see him in Game 7 of the NBA Finals? He was so lethal that Lebron James should pay him millions of dollars this Summer to learn that kind of train of thought off of him. Durant is in his prime and a machine who keeps coming back at you. He is one of a kind.

    Meanwhile, Tyson has made the decision much harder as he is more of an all-around package. He hustles, defends, scores, shoots, dribbles, passes and does everything else. The one thing he lacks is leadership but one can argue that he hasn’t had the chance to do that because he plays on Durant’s team. And rest assured that if the Stealth tried to deal Tyson, they would not get equal value. There is no shooting guard who is as young as him and as good as him.

    In the short-term, these two should be teammates but who knows what will happen over time. And if it ever came down to it, I do not envy Will Sit’s position.

Coach George Karl

    George Karl finally added an NBA championship to his long list of achievements. Are we close to the end of a long coaching career? I think so.

    Karl has health issues but it was his return to the helm of the Stealth ship that put them back on track after a mixed year when Sit was in charge. It remains to be seen whether Coach Karl can continue pacing the sidelines and how the franchise will replace him. Will Coach Sit be back? Will the franchise look to other options? Will they have a young coach or someone more experienced? How will the players react? How will a new coach affect the team’s style and chances of continuing to contend in the NBA?

    There are so many questions that need to be answered but one thing is certain; next season could be Coach Karl’s last ever. Coach Karl didn’t indicate one way or another how he felt about it all. The experienced Head Coach just said that he would enjoy the upcoming summer and enjoy his success from what he termed as ‘my finest NBA season’.

Allen Iverson

    Allen Iverson finally won a title and stated that he would be back for the team’s title defence. “I will be back,” he promised as he answered questions on the podium next to fellow long time NBA colleague Jason Kidd, “I am motivated. I want three rings before I retire. I still have a little bit left in the tank.”

    Iverson was surprisingly cooperative as he embraced his role as the team’s sixth man. Many had thought Iverson’s career was over after being a major flop playing in New York alongside Vince Carter and Lamar Odom. It was the Stealth who embraced him with open arms and prolonged his playing career.

    Iverson acknowledged this, “I have a lot to thank for being here in Seattle. I can finally go out as an NBA champion.”

    The title was the best thing to happen to both Iverson and Kidd who will be sure-fire first ballot Hall-of-Famers. The title is especially important for Iverson who met years of irrelevance between his Philadelphia days and his time in Seattle. Iverson’s reputation as an All-Time great was at risk until he won this title. He was a big part and nobody will forget that.

    Iverson showed that even the most stubborn of players could embrace life as a role player after a life as a superstar.

Jason Kidd

    Unlike Iverson, Kidd did not commit to playing another season.

    “I am 42 years old,” Kidd explained, “I’ve been playing a very long time. I have been thing hard about the possibility of retirement.”

    But the veteran did not confirm what his answer was. He said he needed time to consider it.

    “I always said that if I won one, I would call it quits. That’s what I said when I resigned with Seattle but there’s also a reason why I signed on for more than one year. It’s a tough decision,” Kidd said.

    The loss of Kidd would definitely hurt the team a lot. Kidd provides as much on the court as he does off of it. Even in his 40s, Kidd can still change a close game into a win. As he showed in his maestro effort in Game 7, Kidd can still play with the best of them. He is many steps slower but he can still find ways score (19 points) and he has the talent alongside him to help him register assists (17 assists).

    If he is back next season, he will likely be a bit player but the team noticeably struggled and nearly were upset by the Warriors in the second round without him. The title also means that Kidd has passed the great John Stockton as the second best point guard in the game. Incentive for Kidd to stay is that another title might rank him as the best at his position of All-Time – ahead of Magic Johnson (yes, I am serious).

David Lee

    The talent of Seattle is so deep that Lee, a former All-Star, has become a bit player. It was unfortunate though that the hardest working Stealth player was injured for the NBA Finals. Nevertheless, Lee got a ring and proved to all the doubters who were calling for him to be traded for Chris Bosh over the past three seasons.

    Lee addressed those doubters from the locker room during post-Finals celebrations, “I’ve always worked hard to be a great teammate. I think that people are just jealous and expect too much. They don’t understand how much I sacrificed to be here. I could have made a lot more money and had a bigger role on a different team. But I chose Seattle because they had a vision to build a championship team.”

    Lee spoke about his expiring contract, “I am going to stay here. I don’t want to go anywhere.”

    If Lee doesn’t sound like a winner then I don’t know who does. The Stealth are lucky they never dealt him. This championship will most likely keep Lee around for a while.

Andrew Bogut

    The former first overall pick may not have the point and rebound numbers in Seattle to make him look like a surefire Hall-of-Famer but he has the all-around numbers to put him in there. Bogut’s influence on this team cannot be measured by just numbers either. He is the most skilled big man in the game today and one of the most underrated players in the NBA.

    Bogut played through injuries all season long and delivered. The NBA title will serve him well in future and I am sure that without him at the pivot, the Stealth would not be where they are now. The third option on this team, Bogut has established himself as the top big ahead of even Dwight Howard. On his own team, Bogut could probably average 20 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists a game. That is how good he is.

    The Stealth may face some complications this Summer as Bogut has stated his intention to test free agency. It will be interesting to see whether Bogut will be loyal to the team. Money should not be an issue. The issue will be whether Bogut feels like he wants to have his own team to lead rather than being a third wheel.

Jao Wu

    It was another bumpy season for Jao Wu. His inconsistency hurts the team as does his attitude and shoot-first mentality. The once heralded American-Chinese prodigy has done more harm than good to his stock. If you could tell from how the team used him in the playoffs, they don’t trust a young and quick talent like him and rather put the ball in Jason Kidd’s hands. When Kidd was injured, Wu had great games but he always had more stinkers.

    “It was a tough season,” Wu told reporters who noticed that he wasn’t celebrating with his teammates after the Game 7 win, “My playing time was see-sawing. I can’t get in a rhythm like that. I’ve always had the ball in my hands.”

    Wu was said to have requested a trade from the Stealth mid-season and even was quoted as saying, “Who cares if we are winning if I’m not contributing.”

    Wu’s days in Seattle may be numbered but not until after the team gives him a shot at replacing Jason Kidd full-time. Wu wasn’t a big contributor when the tough got going and may be expendable if the team can bring in a point guard with more experience or a point guard who would be a better fit for this team.

Will Sit

    Will Sit’s vision from years ago paid off and the cumulative effect of all of his moves seem genius right now. Signing Jason Kidd and David Lee in his first full offseason as GM and then trading for Andrew Bogut seems totally justified after these many long years. Trading Russell Westbrook for Reshawn Tyson was a spectacular move in hindsight after Sit was given grief for years that he would bring in a player who many labelled as ‘soft’ and replaced a young athletic PG in Westbrook with an old and slow Kidd.

    Sit deserves even more praise for withstanding demand from brass and fans during times where they wanted to see Chris Bosh in exchange for Lee and Tyson. Sit addressed this, “I’ve been saying for three years that trading for Chris Bosh was going to be too expensive for us. Look at where the Nets were this postseason.”

    Whether Sit becomes the Head Coach down the track, continues his work as GM or goes to another team (rumours of the Knicks) – he has built a legacy that will be hard to beat in Seattle.

It’s hard to forecast this team’s chances of success. The starting lineup is old. Suppose that Kidd does retire with Wu taking over that starting PG spot, the team’s problems may complicate if Wu is disruptive to the team’s already shakey chemistry.

What remains constant is that the team does have the League’s best player in Kevin Durant. They also have the best big man in the game in Bogut and they have one of the brightest all-around players in Tyson.

The Stealth also had the deepest bench in the league with Rocky Akonnor, Mingyu Li, Adam Morrison and Allen Iverson. However, Adam Morrison and Mingyu Li may not be back with the team after this Summer as their contracts are expiring this Summer.

It’s no secret though that Sit and his front office will need to start stockpiling some talent in order to offset the exits of Kidd, Iverson and eventually Lee and Bogut. This offseason will be crucial and the team is going to need to look to free agency and hope to lure a serviceable veteran with the midlevel exception as well as resign Bogut to a multi-year deal.

If the Stealth don’t plan ahead for the next 4-5 seasons, then the downfall of the Stealth could be very ugly.

Fuck you Sit. Fuck you. That's both for Darko and Jao Wu.


GM Sit is going to trade Jao Wu's ass out of Seattle - just like Westbrook's.

GM Sit should be fired if he trades Jao Wu's ass out of Seattle instead of Durants' :P

At the moment I haven't even really had a chance to play 2K12 yet (outside of unlocking all the legend teams that I'll now never use again) as I've been waiting for a decent set of a rosters & sliders for PS3. That finally seems to have happened but time with family growing etc means it's not really as plausible in the past.

I think it's time for us to hand over the torch to the next generation. I hope EA & 2K both bring out good games with better franchise modes so that this section continues to go from strength to strength. Either way, glad to see Kenny continue with his Live '10 Nuggets.

Life always comes first, but I'm looking forward to starting one soon (no promises) and I think hova's is going again. Now that the lockout is over and all the rookies are in the game, hopefully we'll see some 2K12 stories. Either way, I wouldn't say the section is struggling as there are still a few really good stories going right now, better than I can say for the NBA Live 08 days.

Agreed lockout has had its effect, but also the fact that 2K12's Association logic leaves a lot to be desired makes it a lot harder (unless you're willing to run all 30 teams (N) ).

There are definitely good stories out there.

I'm trying my best, but I am nowhere near the quality I delivered a year ago. I just don't have the time with Uni, work etc. Then I will go abroad from Feb 20th to April 17th. After that I have to write my bachelor's thesis. There seems to be something all the time.

2014 OFFSEASON: STEALTH PLAYER MOVEMENT

The Defending NBA champions, Seattle Stealth, made sure that NBA MVP Kevin Durant would not be going anywhere by exercising a team option on him. The Stealth also exercised options on young players Jao Wu and Senso Rancati.

Wu (5.4 ppg, 1.1 apg, 47 FG%, 43 3PT%, 85 FT% in 7.8 mpg last season) is a third year PG and former number 1 pick of the 2012 Draft that Seattle is hoping will fill in nicely as a starter in place of 41 year old. Young SG Senso Rancati was the number 10 pick of the same draft and has only played sporadically for the team. However, Rancati is hoping that he will get a bigger role thanks to main SG back up Allen Iverson getting up there in age.

PF David Lee (10 years pro) also agreed to a new 6 year, 130 million dollar deal with the ball club. Lee was injured for the NBA Finals but held true to his promise to try and get a deal done with Seattle. GM Will Sit was pleased with Lee agreeing to new terms with the team, “I hope that David retires with the ball club.” The 31 year old Lee averaged of 8.8 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 1.6 bpg, 51.5 FG% last season and has missed just 1 game in the last 4 seasons with Seattle.

29 year old All-Star C Andrew Bogut (10 years pro) knocked back an offer to re-sign with the Stealth and instead opted to test free agency. Bogut averaged 14.5 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 5.6 apg, 1.0 spg, 2.1 bpg, 52.5 FG% in what was the best All-Around seasons for an NBA player at his position.

The Stealth failed to re-sign forwards Mingyu Li (5.6 ppg, 8.2 mpg, 51 FG%, 47 3PT%, 85 FT%) and Adam Morrison (8.6 ppg, 18.8 mpg, 48 FG%, 46 3PT%).

2014 FREE AGENCY: AL JEFFERSON DECLINES TO STAY WITH KINGS

29 year old C Al Jefferson has hit out at All-Star teammate Moses Chara in a parting shot that indicates the end of his short-lived Sacramento Kings career. Jefferson was the prize acquisition for the Kings 1.5 seasons ago and helped guide the Kings to the 2013 NBA Finals in which they were runner-ups in.

“He’s overrated,” Jefferson spoke of his teammate, “He’s spoilt and when he’s not playing well, he blames his teammates. I’m sick of his bullshit.” Jefferson averaged 16.4 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 1.9 bpg and would provide any team with a strong inside presence on both ends of the floor. Jefferson should garner plenty of interest as will Wizards C Lamarcus Aldridge (15.6 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 1.0 bpg) and Pistons PF Charlie Villanueva (15.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg) – both testing free agency too.

Other players of note testing free agency are monster rebounder Leo Chase (Indiana), veteran Lamar Odom (Dallas), Carlos Boozer and Kenneth Dela Cruz (both Portland).

2014 NBA DRAFT

1. New York Knicks select B Burgess, 6’6” 21 year old SF out of Alabama – NBA comparison: C Butler

2. Orlando Magic select B Jennings, 6’1” 24 year old PG out of Italy – NBA comparison: M Williams

3. Phoenix Suns select N Simpson, 6’7” 22 year old SG out of Colorado State – NBA comparison: T Macgrady

4. LA Clippers select D Barlow, 6’7” 24 year old SG out of Kansas State – NBA comparison: J Richardson

5. Memphis Grizzlies select C Simpson, 6’9” 20 year old C out of Alabama – NBA comparison: R Wallace

2014 NBA DRAFT: STEALTH TAKE CHANCE ON O’GREENE

Shad O’Greene did enough in pre-draft workouts to convince the Seattle Stealth that he is worth a first round pick. O’Greene was projected to go mid-first round but dropped to the bottom of the first round because of character issues. However, due to the weak depth of the 2014 NBA Draft, O’Greene was picked up by the defending NBA champions with the 30th overall draft pick.

O’Greene is a 6’6” 240 pound PF. The 22 year old is a physical player who looks like he will be doing most of his work on the defensive end. O’Greene is not a polished NBA prospect on the offensive end but should be a handful on the glass. He is compared by many to another undersized forward, Reggie Evans.

The New York Knicks selected PG Axel Gomez with the 31st pick and the Chicago Bulls added PF Carl Cruz with the 51st pick.

I guess Bogie going down got me upset and motivated for virtual Bogie to cheer me up.

I did a search for comparable seasons to Bogie and I got Bill Russell but he only shot in the 40%s... 66-67 season.

Bogie defintiely had best all around season ever for a centre.

I didn't realise they tracked blocks & steals back in '67, because otherwise Russell trumps again. How did Bogie compare to '77 Walton?

It's more than the numbers. It's his presence on the court and off the court. He is a leader and on another team, he would be an All-Star.

6 years, 130 million. We're way over the cap so if I let him walk, we weren't going to get anyone to replace him especially with Mingyu Li quitting on us!

They didn't track them. Russell had 13.3 ppg / 21 rpg / 5.8 apg / 45 FG% in 66-67

But great job with Walton... 77 Walton: 18.9 ppg / 13.2 rpg / 5.0 apg / 1.0 spg / 2.5 bpg / 52 FG%

Very comparable to Bogie last season: 14.5 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 5.6 apg, 1.0 spg, 2.1 bpg, 52.5 FG%

That Blazers team finished first in their division and I believe Walton would have been their number 1 option. Bogie is our number 3 option and we won a championship. Not to mention Walton only played 58 games that season while Bogie played all 82 I believe last season.

Who is better?

EDIT: NO, IGNORE WHAT I SAID.... I have done a proper non-half assed search and come up with following:

David Robinson 1993-94 - 29.8 ppg 10.7 rpg 4.8 apg, 1.7 spg, 3.3 bpg 50.7 FG%
Kareem 1978-79 - 23.8 ppg 12.8 rpg 5.4 apg 1.0 spg 4.0 bpg 57.7 FG% (+ 2 other seasons with over 5apg and better all around numbers)
Wilt - twice with 5+ apg and crazy rebounding/points averages

Bogie had a great season though :)

Russell was way passed his prime and nearing retirement by 67.

Walton was superb do everything centre when healthy. I think Bogie's season compares closest to Walton's as far as being a facilitator, emotional leader, rebounder and defender. Obviously Walton ranks higher but the comparison is the closest I can think of. You should watch some highlights of Walton and Rip City. I'm sure Lamrock can lead you in right direction.

2014 FREE AGENCY

    Bogut Stays In Seattle

    The Seattle Stealth offered Andrew Bogut more money and more years than any other team in the league. It was a no-brainer for the Australian and the 29 year old signed midway through the first month of free agency. “I’m ready to defend our title,” Bogut said, “We have myself, Kevin, David and Tyson on this ball team. We’re an All-Star team with or without Jason (Kidd).”

    Bobcats Lure Al Jefferson

    The Charlotte Bobcats made one of their biggest signings in franchise history as they added All-Star big man Al Jefferson to the fold. Devin Harris resigned with the club when it was confirmed that Jefferson would be on the roster. Jefferson made headlines when he called out Sacramento Kings superstar Moses Chara. Jefferson upon signing with the Bobcats stated, “I am happy to have my own team.”

    Chris Hova Joins Countryman In Sign And Trade

    German international Chris Hova (27 years old, fifth year pro) asked the Toronto Raptors to trade him and the franchise all but obliged after four tough seasons with the young point guard not panning out as planned. Although Hova show much improvement last season by pushing his numbers up to 11.2 ppg, 7 apg – the Raptors did not think he was their leader for the future.

    With that, Hova was traded to the Dallas Mavericks where he will join Dirk Nowitzki. The Mavs sent Jerryd Bayless (15.2 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 4.2 apg last season) to the Raptors. Hova will hopefully be a better option to start at PG for the Mavs as Bayless struggled in a starting role with Dallas.

    The Raptors will likely have Bayless play the role of sixth man, which he is happy about as he has spent many years as one of the best sixth men in the league. The Raptors picked up Manfred Nissley from Minnesota. Toronto is excited to start Nissley next season.

    The move also means that Andrew Watson can move back to the SG position. Watson and Ben Gordon will fight over the summer for the starting SG spot. Lamar Odom also signed a new contract with the Mavs.

    Orlando Continues Rebuilding Mission

    After drafting heralded prospect Brandon Jennings, a former High School All-American who has been playing in Italy, the Magic signed rebounding machine Leo Chase to join a frontcourt of Dwight Howard, Emeka Okafor and Gerald Wallace. Chase has been enigmatic throughout the first few years of his career but many expect a breakout season from him this season. Chase was excited about joining forces with Howard and Okafor, “This is one of the best rebounding teams. I hope that I can come and help these guys do the dirty work and play great on defense.”

    Sixers Lose Andre Iguodala

    In a shocking turn of events, the Philadelphia 76ers lost swingman and face of the franchise Andre Iguodala to the Detroit Pistons. Iggy has been the MVP of the team for years and for a team that has looked quite competent to compete with the best of the Eastern Conference. Unfortunately, the Sixers have always been unlucky during the regular season as well as the postseason whenever they have made it that far. Iggy is now looking forward to playing for a franchise that prides itself on defence and hoping to give them the All-Star that they have been lacking for many years now.

    Morrison Joins Rival Kings

    Journeyman forward Adam Morrison was lured to join Moses Chara and the Sacramento Kings. The move is interesting considering that Morrison had just helped the Kings’ rival Seattle win an NBA championship. The reserve player for the Stealth was an important scorer from off of the bench. His shooting helped spread the court for his teammates and with the departure of Al Jefferson, the Kings need all the help that they can get. It is understood that the Kings had sought Chara’s approval before signing his new teammate.

    Golden State Adds The Missing Piece

    The Golden State Warriors’ run and gun style has always been tough to stop but never tough enough to help them to an NBA Finals berth. Monta Ellis and Louis Nixon are finally going to get some All-Star quality help in the post with the arrival of Lamarcus Aldridge. The former Washington Wizards forward agreed to terms with the Warriors and fans are now excited to see him in their team’s uniform.

    Fans aren’t the only ones excited with Nixon voicing his approval of the signing, “I think Lamarcus puts us over the hump. We’ve never been taken seriously in the Western Conference, which is understandable because of the makeup of our team with no real post threat. But Lamarcus is what we need to take the next step and be a contender.”

    Aldridge is adept at running and finishing in the open court and will be an entertaining proposition for the team.
