Boston Celtics

Brooklyn Nets should celebrate signing of Irving despite obvious risk

The decision will be met with its fair share of raised eyebrows after Irving's most recent season with the Celtics turned out to be a disaster of epic proportions. However, Irving is one of the premier players and point guards in the league, as well as being a Brooklyn native, thus the argument can be made that for a team looking to break into the upper echelon of the NBA, Irving is the exact type of superstar to lead you there.
Golden State Warriors

Should Kevin Durant take the supermax with the Golden State Warriors?

As they rode off into the sunset the Warriors took stock of their losses, especially on their injury list. Klay Thompson tore his ACL in game 6, and the NBA’s pantomime villain Kevin Durant suffered a torn Achilles in game 5. A harsh sense of schadenfreude surrounded the Durant injury. After all, the prevailing opinion was that he had left the Oklahoma City Thunder to join a 73-9 superteam and ease to multiple titles.
Atlanta Hawks

Nets and Hawks are both winners in Crabbe, Prince trade

Brooklyn Nets sent Allen Crabbe and his $18.5 million contract to the Atlanta Hawks in a trade this week, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Brooklyn will also send the 17th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and a 2020 lottery-protected pick. Atlanta will send Taurean Prince, and a 2021 second rounder to Brooklyn.
