LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant and James Harden all have a claim as the best player in the NBA.
The NBA Playoffs begin this Saturday. Late season drama was limited, with the Detroit Pistons holding onto the eight seed in the East. We have known the Western Conference playoffs for a while, but the seedings altered in the final days of the regular season, changing the first-round matchups.
Pau Gasol has signed with the Milwaukee Bucks after being bought out by the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski.
With LeBron James on the other side of the country, the Eastern Conference is wide open. Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics are all competing to make the NBA Finals and there is little to pick between the East’s top four.
Milwaukee Bucks have agreed a trade with New Orleans Pelicans to acquire Nikola Mirotic, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Milwaukee Bucks have agreed a trade to send centre Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons for Stanley Johnson, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Consider this scenario: the season ends today, on 12th January 2019, who would the postseason awards be distributed to in this case? For the majority of these awards there is often a clear-cut winner (we’re looking at you, Luka Doncic), but when it comes to the MVP award, two names spring to mind: James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Bucks added an experienced veteran and cap space in George Hill deal.
Milwaukee have joined the three-point revolution to become a real threat.
Will anyone be able to stop Giannis in this post-LeBron world?
