Can Carmelo Anthony rebuild in OKC? 

It just did not work in New York. Fun while it lasted I guess. Flashes of Kristaps Porzingis being great in the future, (Jeremy Lin) Lin-sanity, brief appearances in the playoffs after a long drought, but I think even Carmelo Anthony would admit this is not the legacy he wanted to leave in New York. I for one am excited on what is to come for “hoodie Melo”. He’s definitely has got some bulletin board material to motivate the next chapter of his career.

Last season Carmelo and other NBA stars see LeBron James went back and forth with then Knicks president Phil Jackson. Jackson at one point even saying Melo should probably continue elsewhere. The Knicks again had a terrible season in which they missed the playoffs and Carmelo had one of the worst statistical seasons of his career. Melo had one of the lowest outputs ever offensively which had some fans of the NBA questioning his value since scoring is his best attribute and felt he never expanded his game to involving his teammates and playing defense. He was also blatantly not on the Knicks radar for building for the future. Then ESPN drops its players ranking where he’s disrespectfully listed as the 64th best player in the NBA just behind rookie Lonzo Ball who hasn’t played a game yet and I’m a Laker fan but be serious. Have you seen the footage of him giving all the stars in the league work this summer all while wearing a hoodie?

Fast forward to this summer post Phil Jackson being fired and we see a whirlwind of trades happening throughout the NBA. Paul George setting up shop in Oklahoma, Chris Paul joining Harden in Houston and Jimmy Buckets (Butler) taking his talents to Minnesota. Stars all around the league changing the dynamic powers of the NBA. All except the one we thought would for sure be traded. Yesterday news broke that Carmelo added teams to a list he would accept a trade to. Last week we received confirmation he’ll be heading to Oklahoma to join Russell Westbrook and George creating another super team if those exist (see Cavs, Warriors finals back and forth lol). Let the fireworks begin.

Audio: Shaq disses LaVar Ball over Jay-Z beat

LaVar Ball and Shaq have had a few jabs for each other in the following months. We all know LaVar to be a media lighting rod, whenever a mic in his face (pause) he is liable to say anything and mostly he does that.

Shaq said he should charge less than $495 to make it affordable for the kids, like his Shaq shoes that are in Wal-Mart and LaVar of course clapped back saying something to the tune of you got shoes there, I don’t have to.

LaVar was asked if he and LaMelo could beat Shaq and Shareef and of course he gave us some headline material and now we have the Shaq diss track.

Meet us in the comments with your thoughts.

Vlog 4: Summer ’17 has been terrible for the Cleveland Cavaliers

I have a few vlogs already prerecorded that I numbered on the video like a rookie and this one will be out of order, but with how hot these Kyrie Irving trade talks are I had to give my two cents. So check my video out and meet me in the comments if you have thoughts about Cavaliers.

Lonzo Ball posts a triple double in Harden’s

Lonzo has kicked the Zo 2’s to the side the last two summer league games. He wore Kobe’s (Nike) on Wednesday and James Harden’s (Adidas) on Thursday. In the Harden’s he posted his second triple double of the Summer League. He has 16 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, 5 steals and 2 blocks versus the Cleveland Cavaliers.

This is a good look for the Lakers to see the constant improvement from Ball, but what shoes will he be wearing during the season?

Check out his triple double.


Lonzo Ball has his best Summer League game wearing Kobe’s!

Lonzo Ball ditched the Zo 2’s for some Kobe’s and racked up a stat line of 36 points, 8 rebounds and 11 assists against the Philadelphia 76ers. What does that mean for the Big Baller Brand shoes? Maybe they need to tweak the technology in the shoes? Or did Zo just want to wear some Kobe’s? I don’t know, but check out video of Ball going to work in the Summer League. I wonder what De’ Aaron Fox thinks about playing a day after sitting out against him?
