Guys like Stephen A. Smith, Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe changed the game for the better
Taking First:. @ Stepphenasmith says Steph Curry changed basketball for the better, while MJ changed it for the worse. “Michael Jordan is the one responsible, like everyone else, for turning this game into a bad one!” Kevin Durant: My guess is that guys like Steve, skip and Shannon are going to change the game for the worse. Playas like Stephen and Michael can just push the game forward.

Kevin Durant’s Boardroom collaborated with Showtime to create ‘NYC Point Gods’, an illuminating record for NYC guards in the 80s & 90s. Available on 7/29. “Everyone knows when NYC guards see them,” says Durant. (* Hopefully, the film includes Kareem Reid) pic.twitter.com/EAFH0IKCiT – 12:23 PM

Kevin Durant & Rich Kleiman have previously made records at PG County, and later featured NYC’s well-known PGs. Personally, I’m glad to see anything that is interesting @Kenny Anderson. Showtime doc also includes @Mark Jackson, @Stephen Marbury & @rod_strickland. Available July 29 pic.twitter.com/Ti7hU1hQbJ – 11:20 AM

There are two types of Dynasties in the NBA. The one with the highest speed. They are the ones who continue beyond the first rise and fall. This is how the Warriors are trying to do this, & the important role that Kevin Durant played. espn.com/nba/insider/st… – 10:40 AM

Among the All-Stars, Kevin Durant has the third worst mark on the running holes in the pre-season.
Only two All-Star locations did the worst.

LeBron-DWade heat came out after 4 years, KD-Russ-Harden Thunder ended in 3. Shaq and Kobe won 3 titles in 8 years and ended badly. Steph-Draymond-Klay’s warriors are different because of No. 30

The @Boston Celtics Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are the third players in NBA history to record 400p / 100r / 50a by the end of the conference.

9-year-old Jayson Tatum was there with his father when his gods Larry Hughes’ Cleveland Cavaliers played for the San Antonio Spurs in the 2007 NBA Finals. Fifteen years later, close friends of Hughes and Justin Tatum will be together watching “Lil J” as they try to lead the Boston Celtics to the title of Golden Golden Warriors. “When a child sees that a dream is real, it is easy, but not easy, to chase the dream,” Hughes told Andscape this week. “I was glad he saw that making the NBA possible. I hope he will get his reward.” – via Andscape / June 2, 2022
The first phase may come with a break. Poole is due to be added to his rookie contract this summer, and while one signing of him may be unwise, the high tax it brings could break the record. The Warriors are already in the pipeline for next season before signing key vets like Kevon Looney. Next season, when the Poole development begins, he will also sing Andrew Wiggins. Paying now with one future will be very expensive. “We’re not thinking about this anymore,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers tells me. “With the playoffs, we are not thinking about the contract and the offseason. We will arrive on time.” – Through The Ringer / June 2, 2022
For Poole, I arrive. Years ago, as he struggled in the League, the Golden State general election always found that the first competition would find its place in the league. But the same confidence that brought him to the NBA, who was born on Milwaukee’s social media site, has now allowed him to reach an unprecedented level. “I knew it would happen,” she says. “Not everyone can come and be the first to get all the shots and play on offense and so on. But chances are you will show yourself. You don’t know when, then your job is ready every time it comes.
