There's a packed NBA schedule on MLK Day. The Bucks and Nets meet in an Eastern Conference showdown. Stephen Curry and LeBron James go head-to-head once again in the final game of the night.
The Cleveland Cavaliers picked up Jarrett Allen for a bargain price in the James Harden trade.
The Philadelphia 76ers didn't trade for James Harden, despite so many reports they were the favorites to land Harden.
The Indiana Pacers got in on the James Harden trade action on Wednesday. Indiana flipped the expiring contract of Victor Oladipo and acquired Caris LeVert.

To say it’s been a wild NBA season so far would be an understatement. After having just a little over two months to prepare, the first few games naturally didn’t go as planned for most teams, as the standings show.
But Westbrook, with his consistent overall production on both ends of the floor has shown that his impact on games transcends mere scoring, even though it hasn't led to much playoff success either. All-time, he may come out the better point guard, but only by the smallest of margins.
The NBA Christmas Day games were a bit disappointing. The Heat easily beat the Pelicans, the Bucks cruised past the Warriors, and the Nets were far better than the Celtics.
Five NBA games take place on Christmas Day. The Pelicans meet the Heat before the Warriors take on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks. They're followed by the Nets and Celtics before attention switches to the Western Conference for the Mavericks versus the Lakers and a playoff rematch between the Clippers and the Nuggets.
This year’s NBA Christmas Day games are no different, featuring an exciting cast of young up-and-coming players with everything to prove matched up against league veterans.
The 2020/21 NBA season is here. It's been the shortest offseason in league history, but the excitement levels are as high as ever for opening night. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant matchup for the first time since Durant played for the Thunder as the Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets get the season tipped off on December 22nd. The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers follow up at Staples Center.
But with the league already filled with established stars, there are some who are still overlooked by many. These five names I will enumerate are overshadowed by their higher-tier superstar teammates, but their production is already on par with the more popular players in the league.
Coming up with a Top 5 list of the best current NBA point guards is always a challenging task. Aside from talent, point guards are now stuffing the stat sheet in today's positionless basketball. It's safe to say that the production among point guards in this NBA era is at an all-time high.
A James Harden trade has become an increasingly real possibility. The Brooklyn Nets are reportedly at the front of the queue if Houston starts entertaining offers for Harden.
Brooklyn Nets sharpshooter Joe Harris heads into free agency looking for a big payday. The Nets’ offseason might be focused on trade rumours for a third star, but retaining Harris is crucial for Brooklyn as they look to contend in 2021 and beyond.
