2016 nba playoffs teams to watch

2016 NBA Playoffs Six Teams To Watch

2016 NBA Playoffs Six Teams To Watch

With one more month until the 2016 NBA playoffs start, the race in both the East and West is as close as ever. The 8th and the 9th seed in the East are separated by half a game, with the 6th seed also only two games in front of 9th seed. In the West, the difference between the 8th and 9th seed is only two games, making the stretch run extremely interesting. Here are six teams that should become more and more interesting as the 2016 NBA playoffs approach.

Detroit Pistons

The Pistons went all in at the trade deadline, getting Tobias Harris from Orlando Magic to form a “mini Big-Three” with Drummond, Reggie Jackson and Harris. And while some people expected quick results, in reality, Detroit is playing 50% basketball since the trade. But that might be a good thing. The good news for the Pistons is they have only 7 more games on the road. But the bad news is they have lots of games against direct competition, starting with two games against the Wizards, a game against Chicago, two against the Hornets, and then some against higher tier Eastern teams: 2 against Atlanta, 2 against Miami, and one against Cleveland. The Wizards game are extremely important, since Washington leads the season series 2:0, and one more win will ensure the Wizards the tiebreaker. Detroit Pistons tickets for the 2016 NBA playoffs games start at just $35.00 per ticket.

Washington Wizards

Speaking of the Wizards, they are 2 and a half games outside of the playoff picture, but they can make up ground by beating the Pistons. Detroit is not in the playoffs, but they are just half a game behind Chicago for the 8th spot. The biggest challenge for the Wizards will be the Atlanta Hawks, as they have three more games against the 5th best team in the East at the moment. The good news, however, is they have several games against bottom feeders left: 2 against the Nets, 1 versus Phoenix, one versus Lakers, one versus Knicks, and one versus Sixers. Get Washington Wizards tickets for their 2016 NBA playoff games today.

Chicago Bulls

The Bulls got Jimmy Butler back, but it might be too late. Sitting at the 8th spot, with just half a game lead is not something that Chicago envisioned at any point during the season. The Bulls were supposed to fight with Cleveland for East supremacy, but that hasn’t happened yet. And it doesn’t get easier down the road with only 8 home games left. Opponent wise, the Bulls have one more game against the Cavs, one against the Raptors, two versus the Heat, one with the Pistons, one with Indiana, one with San Antonio and one with Washington. The silver lining is that the Bulls will decide their own fate, with games against direct opponents like Washington, Indiana, and Detroit. Chicago Bulls schedule for their 2016 NBA Playoffs games at the United Center start at just $85.00 per ticket.

Portland Trail Blazers

Let’s start from the good news. The Blazers are currently at the 6th spot in the West, despite losing every player of their starting lineup from last season not named Damian Lillard. They have no chance of getting the 5th spot, but staying at 6 is very plausible scenario. Now, for the bad news. Take a look at their schedule: 2 more versus Golden State, 2 more versus OKC, one versus San Antonio, one versus Clippers. That is six games against the top 4 teams in the West. And to top it that, they have 2 more games against Dallas, a team that is just half a game behind them in the standings. The Blazers will likely make the playoffs, but staying at 6th spot gives them a chance against an OKC team that doesn’t look as scary as the Warriors and Spurs. Portland Trail Blazers tickets for the 2016 NBA Playoffs begin at just $25.00 per ticket.

Best NBA Match Ups In December

5 Best Individual NBA Match ups in December

5 Best Individual NBA Match ups in December

The 5 Best Individual NBA Match ups in December is tough as there is so many great NBA games including the Christmas match ups. Here is our look at the 5 Best Individual NBA Match ups in the month of December.

Quicken Loans ArenaKevin Durant versus Lebron James
Quicken Loans Arena December 17th
The number one Best Individual NBA Match ups in December. Lebron James will be the host of this one, but when these two play each other, the venue doesn’t change much. A year ago, they were considered the best two players in the NBA, with James being 1A and Durant 1B. It is hard to find a flaw in the game of either one, and every time they face each other it comes to nuances and single moments that decide the winner. Durant has also improved his defensive play to the point he now guards James on most of the possessions. On the other side, James always takes the challenge of guarding the best player on the opposing team. Back from his foot injury, Durant is posting numbers that we are used to seeing: 28ppg on 53% shooting overall and 47% from behind the lane. James has always been a more all-round player with rebounds and assists on his resume. Cavaliers vs Thunder tickets start at $65.00.

Anthony Davis versus Marc Gasol,
Smoothie King Center December 1st
The number two Best Individual NBA Match ups in December. The game will be played in New Orleans, in what will be a battle of old versus new. Marc Gasol is arguably the best all-round center in the league right now, with Davis being the younger, more athletic and explosive player that would love to have that crown. To make things more interesting, both Gasol and Davis are as great defensive players as they are offensive. Few people can guard Gasol, as he has a plethora of moves, and he can also pass and facilitate the offense. Davis is not on that level yet, but he is as explosive as they come. And he now shoots 3s, which will take Gasol out of his comfort zone in the paint and force him to guard Davis at the perimeter. Simply put, a joy to watch. Pelicans vs Grizzlies tickets start at $5.00.

NBA Match Ups DecemberKristaps Porzingis versus Dirk Nowitzki
Madison Square Garden December 7th
The number three Best Individual NBA Match ups in December. In the words of Dirk, “The kid is for real”. If there is one young player that clearly resembles Dirk and his play that is Porzingis. The young Latvian player was heavily criticized for going so high to New York, but his play in the first month in the NBA has proven doubters wrong. He is big, quick, has a nice soft touch from outside, and can rebound and defend. Or in other words, everything Dirk can do, Porzingis can do as well, in addition to his great shot blocking ability and defense. It is hard to see this turning into a shooting matchup between the two, as Carmelo might swoop in to take the spotlight, but if Kelly Olynyk could give Dirk his signature one leg stepback jumper, Porzingis can show the German he has soft touch as well. Mavericks vs Knicks tickets start at $74.00.

Carmelo Anthony versus Lebron James
Quicken Loans Arena December 23rd
The number four Best Individual NBA Match ups in December. The rivalry between these two goes back to their high school years as they managed to pack the venues and get national TV coverage for their duels even then. They went 1 and 2 in the 2003 Draft, and while many expected the two to battle for championship head to head, that hasn’t happen yet. James got 2 rings with Miami, while Carmelo is still looking for his first. And if there is one scorer that James has troubles guarding, that has to be Melo. The only thing that could make this matchup even more interesting is if the home arena was Madison Square Garden. Sadly, it isn’t, but that doesn’t mean these two won’t put on a show. Cavaliers vs Knicks tickets start at $62.00.

5 best NBA Match Ups In DecemberBlake Griffin versus Lamarcus Aldridge,
AT&T Center December 18th
The number 5 Best Individual NBA Match ups in December. We had to put someone’s name in this match up, but you can say this is as best as they come. Spurs versus Clippers is an epic NBA match up, as both teams are covered on every position with players that are as competitive as they come. Parker versus CP3, Danny Green versus Redick on the shooting, and then you have Duncan and Jordan in the paint. Speaking of Griffin versus Aldridge, these two were in the competition for best power forward in the league for quite some time, and they still are. Griffin is the more power player, while Lamarcus has that sweat touch from 18-feet that Blake is trying to add to his repertoire. Spurs vs Clippers tickets start at $60.00.

First Los Angeles Clippers Game

My First Los Angeles Clippers Game

After years of watching NBA games, staying up late (while being in Europe) during the playoffs to watch the greatest of the greatest fight against each other in conquest of the Larry O’Brien Trophy, the time had arrived. 7.30 p.m. Kings at Clippers. That was the game that was about to start on a fine Saturday afternoon in LA. That was about to become my first live experience in the courts of the NBA.

My friends and I arrived a little over an hour before the start of the game and I insisted in going straight into the legendary Staples Center, aiming to make the most out of my first, exciting visit and of course having the time to buy some official Clippers clothing from the team boutique.

We parked in a parking space close by the Staples Center and started walking the Staples Center. Here comes the first shock.
This building, in which some of the best players to ever pass from the NBA had played was standing in front of me. Beautiful with the nice purple colored windows and the red “Staples Center” sign above, it was becoming bigger and bigger and more marvelous as we approached.

Doc Rivers LA Clippers We quickly passed the security control, grabbed a bunch of Clippers schedule mouse pad giveaways and headed straight inside the arena. The feeling was just unbelievable. Haven only seen some European basketball arenas, the difference was obviously chaotic from the first second. Some pictures and a few looks around the arena later, we headed towards the alleys, where we had hot dogs and cola (huge hot dogs, really). The Clippers boutique was right outside our gate so I stopped by to buy some Clippers T-Shirts and an amazing white Clips hat. I also grabbed a Paul Pierce jersey for my friend, who has been a fan of him all the way back from his Boston days. Prices in general were very reasonable for LA and US standards and I wouldn’t mind paying even more to get the official and amazing gear I purchased from the team boutique.
That’s because I didn’t know when and if I’d have the chance to visit the arena in the future.

We entered the arena about 30 minutes before the game and there was yet another shock. Our seats were one of the best and really comfortable by the way, a bit above court-side and slightly towards Clippers bench. It was Halloween so lots of fans were dressed up with cute costumes and the director made sure the central giant screens showed the best appearances (the team handed gifts to the top ones, too).

Clippers vs KingsThe two teams entered the court. And there came yet another shock. Some of the stars I’ve been watching playing the game for so many years were right in front of me, ready to start the game. DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Paul Pierce and Lance Stephenson from LA, Rajon Rondo, DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay from Sacramento’s side. And of course, the man in the middle for the Clips, the maestro Doc Rivers. My eye couldn’t have missed the huge rafters on our left, which Rivers had ordered getting changed to Clippers ones (instead of the default-Lakers ones) when the Clips were playing at home.

The pre-game show is a show. An amazing one. It’s how you imagine it plus more. The atmosphere is just amazing, urging you to cheer and rejoice. And I can’t image how better it becomes during playoffs.

Tipoff time. DeAndre got the first tip and the Clippers were headed towards their first offense. It was just amazing seeing the action live, watch the moves in real-time, have the full vision of the court and feeling the reactions from the crowd (yes, not having TV-commentary helps, too). It’s just totally different when you see the live action, it’s as great as it gets !

Chris Paul LA ClippersThe action in the court was really fun. Dunks (the drive of the game came from Lance Stephenson), alley-oops from DJ and Blake Griffin, some amazing shots and in-traffic shots from both sides. Gay and Rondo really got it going, from Sacramento’s side. The experience was just as perfect as I imagined it. The more you love the game, the more you understand it and what it takes for those 10 players on the court to stand where they stand, the more lurid it becomes. And for me it was. Having Steve Ballmer a few feet away from us added something extra to the entire experience, too. What more can you ask for?

Half-time arrived before I knew it and we headed out of the arena for a catch up with friends. And as you may see sometimes on TV, we, too, were late returning for the third quarter. The security guard at the gate didn’t allow us to grab our seats until a whistle, which I found very clever as the distractions for other fans get minimized that way.

During some timeouts, the amazing cheerleaders, who had previously given a fantastic show, were throwing Clippers T-Shirts and guess what, I managed to grab one after it bounced-off some other people in front of me. Had to fight for it. I was so happy! And then, in the next timeout the Clippers Gatling Gun made its appearance. Of course, instead of bullets it was firing Clips T-Shirts again. Amazing, simply amazing.

Blake Griffin LA Clippers GameDuring another timeout, instead of cheerleaders some kids-dancers gave a show and I couldn’t tell if they were real pros or just little kids from school. They were so good. As mentioned above, it’s not just a game. It’s both a show, one of the best you can see and a game, the best you can see.

Come late fourth quarter, the game was very close and the Kings tried to hack-a-Jordan only to receive a T. That shifted the game and a few JJ Redick made free throws later, the Clips received a victory. Happy end for my first NBA game experience.

After the final whistle, my friends started heading towards the exit, although I didn’t want to leave the arena that quickly. I was so amazed that despite the about 15,000 fans present, there were zero queue lines, no overcrowding and it even took us a few meetings to get out of the building. As a matter of fact, one positive experience came after the other before, during and after the game.

We ended our evening with drinks and fun in a local bar in the LA Live area, just behind the Staples Center. And guess what, it was, again, stunning !

Special Thank You to all the guys at Barry’s Tickets for making my dream come true and helping me see my first Los Angeles Clippers game ever! I am looking forward to going to a Clippers December Game and will 100% get my Clippers Tickets from you guys!

Lakers Kobe Bryant and Rookie D’Angelo Russell

Kobe Bryant & D’Angelo Russell Have Skyrocketed Lakers Tickets

The Return of Kobe Bryant and Rookie D’Angelo Russell Have Skyrocketed Lakers Tickets

In recent years, the downfall of the Lakers has helped the Los Angeles Clippers become the team of LA. However, according to Laker ticket prices, the Lakers still hold more value in the City of Angels. The team has announced the prices of the tickets for the 2015-2016 season, and the prices have risen to 6.2% compared to the average price of last season.

But the higher price should be expected; given that next season could potentially be Kobe Bryant’s last season. Hampered by injuries the last two seasons, Lakers great Kobe Bryant says he is finally healthy and ready to withstand the wear and tear of a full season. The star shooting guard will have minute restriction during the season, but even 25-30 minutes of action from Kobe is more than enough to entice Lakers fans and Hollywood A-listers to attend the games.

The numbers speak for themselves; the tickets for the 41 home games for the Lakers at the Staples Center are more expensive than last year. The average secondary market price is set at $246.95 at the moment, and the price might go even higher as the year progresses. Teams are not immune to increasing prices during the season, and that especially might apply if the Lakers win more games than they lose and suddenly compete for a playoff spot. Last year, the average price of the secondary market tickets was set at $232.55.

Many people believe that no matter that the Lakers play in a highly competitive Pacific division that is slowly becoming a rival to the Northwest for the toughest western division, other factors contribute to the increase in price. The first and most important factor are the return of Kobe Bryant, who should be back in uniform after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in January last season. Back then, Kobe Bryant said that his plan is to be ready for September and training camp. Aside from the return of Kobe Bryant, the Lakers will also welcome rookie D’Angelo Russell, for whom the city has high expectations. Add in the return of another lottery pick in Julius Randle, as well as additions like Roy Hibbert, Brandon Bass, and Lou Williams, and the city has high expectations for next season.

As expected, the most expensive game the Lakers will play at the Staples Center is against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The rivalry between Kobe Bryant and Lebron James is one of the most anticipated in the past ten years, and fans were always expecting that the two will meet in the Finals. Sadly, that hasn’t happened, but their duels are always primetime. The two teams will play at the Staples Center on March 10, and the tickets are currently priced at $397.23 for a secondary market average. The price is 60% higher than the season average for Lakers tickets. The cheapest Laker tickets for the March 10 game is priced at $86.

The second most expensive game is the Christmas matchup with the Clippers, the intra-city rival. The price for the Lakers Games in December Christmas matchup that has the Lakers as the official host of the Clippers is $383.68. On April 6, the two teams will again meet, and the Lakers will again be the host. That is the third most expensive home game for the Lakers with a price tag of $336.05 for the secondary market average.

Few games will have a price below $200 for the next season, and the cheapest game the Lakers will play against the Denver Nuggets. The two teams will meet on November 3, with the average price of tickets standing at $173.05. The cheapest ticket for the game costs just $23. Some other below $200 games include the duel against the Indiana Pacers (November 29, $192 average price), against the Portland Trail Blazers (November 22, $194 average price) and against the Charlotte Hornets (January 31, $198 average price).

Kobe Bryant Retire Charles Barkley

Should Kobe Bryant Retire Soon?

Should Kobe Bryant Retire Soon? Charles Barkley Thinks So!

Kobe Bryant has been a controversial figure throughout his basketball career, but regardless of how you feel about his personal decisions, there is no question that he is a superstar on the court. Many would argue that whenever Kobe Bryant retires he will be one of the top 10 basketball players to ever play the game.

However, no matter how great he is, he simply can not play forever. There is already speculation about how much longer Kobe can continue to play in the NBA.

Recently, basketball legend Charles Barkley voiced his personal opinion about how much longer Kobe should play basketball, and in a statement that is sure to anger fans of the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant, he expressed his desire to see Kobe Bryant retire at the end of this season.

It was not a mean-spirited comment, but based more on his own experience playing in the NBA as he was getting older, he felt like he played longer than he should have. According to the CBSsports article, “Barkley Hopes Kobe Bryant Retires This Year, For Kobe’s Sake” by Matt Moore, Barkley had this to say,

“This should be like a farewell tour, play 20, 25 minutes a night. The Lakers aren’t going to make the playoffs. Could he play some more? Yeah, of course. His best days are behind him. I hear these fools on TV, talking about, ‘Kobe’s going to get healthy.’ Old people don’t get healthy; they die. Old people don’t get healthy. Father Time is undefeated.”

If you have a dream of seeing Kobe Bryant play in person before he retires, this may be the year to secure some tickets to a Lakers game. Barry’s Tickets has no service fee’s or hidden charges on any Laker Tickets!

top nba rebounder

Who is the best offensive NBA rebounder?


Who is the best offensive NBA rebounder?

Offensive rebounding is one of the underrated skills nowadays. But with the passing of Moses Malone, who is arguably one of the best offensive nba rebounders of all time, the subject of offensive rebounding is trending again. The last great offensive rebounder was Denis Rodman, who even though was not as tall as other big men, had a knack for the ball and knew exactly where to position himself to get the offensive rebound. Nowadays, among the best offensive rebounders in the league, the names of Andre Drummond, Tristan Thompson and DeAndre Jordan come to mind. Who is the best among them? Let’s take a look.

The Case for Andre Drummond

In the past two seasons, Drummond grabs more than 400 offensive rebounds per year. The last man to get more than 400 NBA offensive rebounds in a season was Jayson Williamson, who did it 17 years ago. For comparison, two years ago, Drummond grabbed 440 offensive rebounds to lead the league, while Jordan was second on the list with 331. Last year, they were closer, with Drummond grabbing 437 and Jordan getting 397 rebounds. Drummond average 5.3 offensive rebounds per game, which was one of the reasons how he managed to get 13.8 points per game, despite no play was designed for him.

The Case for DeAndre Jordan

Drummong might get more rebounds, but when DeAndre Jordan is getting an offensive rebound, in half of the cases it ends on the NBA Top 10 plays and on a highlight reel. DeAndre Jordan has the flair and style in offensive rebounding, as almost all of his rebounds end up with putbacks slams. One reason why Jordan is not getting as much offensive rebounds as Drummond is the Clippers strategy and philosophy of coach Doc Rivers. Doc doesn’t want his players to sacrifice offensive rebounds for transition defense. Instead, he instructs them to start going back when the play is almost at the end. Last season, as a team, the LA Clippers ranked 28th in offensive rebounding, but lead the league in points allowed in the first six seconds of the shot clock. If Jordan gets more freedom to crash the boards, he might as well eclipse Drummond and get more rebounds.

The case for Tristan Thompson

Since the start of his NBA career, Thompson has averaged at least 3 offensive boards per game, getting career high 3.7 offensive rebounds per game during the 2012-2013 season. But it wasn’t until the 2015 playoffs when Thompson was inserted into the starting lineup and was able to show his skills on the glass. Tristan averaged 4.4 offensive rebounds per game, always positioning himself close to the ball. He was one of the main reasons why the Cleveland Cavaliers were able to get to the Finals, despite poor shooting and playing without Kevin Love.

Conclusion

This might be a subjective answer, but we must say that Jordan has the potential to be the best offensive NBA rebounder among the three. The reason is simple, he is the tallest, has the highest arms, and is the most athletic of the three. Drummond might develop into a better offensive and complete player, but Jordan is stronger than him and knows how to position himself better in order to get an offensive rebound. The moment Doc Rivers unleashes him and allows Jordan to sacrifice transition defense for more offensive boards, the league will see the true potential of DeAndre Jordan.

anthony davis new orleans pelicans

Anthony Davis Pelicans will take 100 shots per game, who will take the extra shots?

Anthony Davis says the Pelicans will take 100 shots per game, who will take the extra shots?

During the 2014-2015 season, the New Orleans Pelicans were among the bottom teams in shots taken per game. The Pelicans took around 85 shots per game last season, and it seems like next season will be quite different. Star player Anthony Davis said in an interview that new head coach Alvin Gentry wants the team to take 100+ shots per game. So, with that in mind, who will take those extra shots?

Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis is the obvious choice here. He is the proud owner of the biggest contract in NBA history, courtesy of the five million contract he signed this summer. Last season, Davis averaged 17.6 shots per game. What Gentry wants to do is expand Davis’s range up to the 3-pt line. He also noted that he wants Davis to take more shots on the fly, with an up-tempo playing style. Davis is a beast inside, and he has a nice touch on his jumper. The problem is, defenses were mostly ready and settled for him last season. With an up-tempo style, Davis’s shots can sky rocket up to 20 per game. That is Carmelo Anthony (who is also on of the highest paid NBA players) territory and Kobe Bryant, but Anthony Davis is far more efficient than any of them.

Eric Gordon

For the past two seasons, Gordon is relatively healthy, appearing in 64 and 61 games respectively. His shots are down from his first two seasons with the Pelicans, but that should be expected with Anthony Davis in the lineup. However, with more shots available next season, Gordon could see his 11 shots per game rise up to 14 or 15 per game. The shooting guard is tailor made for an up-tempo offense, where he can catch and shoot from the 3-pt line before there is a defender with a hand in his face. Gordon’s 3-pt percentage rose to 44.8% last season, and 39% the previous season.

Jrue Holiday

Holiday is another player that could benefit from the more up-tempo style of play, as the point guard is great in the open floor. He is among the most underrated point guards when it comes to drives to the basket. Few people can drive as hard and as efficient to the basket as Holiday. While he doesn’t have a great jump shot, Holiday can get some extra shots in the fast break. Last year he averaged 13 shots per game, but you can easily see him getting to 15 per game.

Norris Cole

With the move from the Miami Heat to the New Orleans Pelicans, Cole’s shots rose from 6.5 to 9 per game. With a full training camp with the Pelicans, Cole could potential scratch double digit shots per game. He will be the de facto backup point guard, no matter that Tyreke Evans will have the ball in his hands as well. But Cole can run a ton of pick and roll action with Anthony Davis, something that will produce opportunities for the five year veteran.

New Orleans Pelicans Ticket Prices
Since signed by the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2012 NBA Draft Pelicans tickets have risen 74% on the retail market. The retail price on Pelicans tickets during their 2012-2013 season was $51.00 per ticket. The 2015-2016 secondary market ticket price for New Orleans is $89.00 per ticket on average.

New Orleans Pelicans Attendance
The New Orleans Pelicans attendance for home games has also risen. In 2012 they ranked 24th in the league with a total of 498,618 attendance for home games. In 2015 their attendance grew to 683,757. A 37.13% rise in attendance.

jamal crawford la clippers

Jamal Crawford Four Trade Scenarios for Clippers

Jamal Crawford Four Trade Scenarios for LA Clippers

Jamal Crawford has been on the trade block since February last year. Doc Rivers recently said in an interview that he will be surprised if Jamal Crawford doesn’t finish the season as a Clipper. And while Rivers could be right, the other, harsh reality is that the Clippers will not trade Crawford just for the sake of unloading his contract. They want something in return, and few teams will offer goodies for a 30+ years old backup guard that doesn’t defend. Crawford can light it up on a given night, and he is way more consistent in doing so than someone like J.R. Smith for example. With that being said, what the Clippers can expect to get back? The Clippers could use a backup small forward and swingman, preferably someone who can defend. They could also use a backup center.

 

Jamal Crawford to Sacramento

This would be an underrated move by the Clippers, but the Sacramento Kings actually have a player that the Clippers could use, and his name is Omri Casspi. With the signing of Marco Belinelli, the Kings will probably have fewer minutes to offer to Casspi. Omri is a decent defender, and good enough shooter from distance to work in Clippers. The problem might be the Sacramento Kings organization, as they already have a logjam at the guard position. However, the Clippers can solve that solution, taking back Darren Collison as well as Casspi. Collison has already served as a backup to CP3 and played for Doc Rivers in Los Angeles. Or they can try to find a third party to facilitate the trade. In any case, Casspi would fill a role in Los Angeles, and he costs $3 million per year, compared to Crawford and his $4.6 million per year contract.

 

Jamal Crawford to Miami Heat

The Miami Heat were among the teams mentioned during the summer as a likely destination for Jamal Crawford. They would love to have him, but the Clippers might be asking too big of a price. If not, the Heat have the contract of Chris Andersen to offer. The fun part is that this trade looks perfect on paper, as the Clippers will shed money and get a decent backup center in return. Andersen basically does the same things as Jordan, which is get lobs, defend, and putbacks via offensive rebounds. The difference is Jordan is more talented and younger.

 

Jamal Crawford to Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons acquired Steve Blake in a trade this summer before he even get to play for the Nets. And the likely scenario is that they would trade him as well, as long as they get a good player or a pick in return. Blake is an ideal candidate for backup in Los Angeles, as he is stable point guard, one that can run the offense and doesn’t commit turnovers. He is also decent spot up shooter and costs less than $2 million per year.

 

Jamal Crawford to Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors desperately need someone outside of Kyle Lowry and DeMar Derozan to score. Jamal Crawford fills that void. The Raptors would have to give up Terrence Ross, and they wouldn’t mind to. Ross looks like he is not part of the Raptors future, and with the signing of DeMarre Carroll, he will see even fewer minutes next season. Ross could be a valuable backup SG/SF in Clippers, and he fits well into their athletic roster.
