Kevin Durant on Kyrie Irving: “We support Kyrie 100%”

As the NBA world continued to wonder whereof the Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving is, team leader Kevin Durant returned from his COVID-19 quarantine on Monday to play for the Nets and received questions about Irving’s whereabouts.

Irving is four games into a leave from the team for personal reasons that head coach Steve Nash initially knew nothing about.

The 28-year-old guard was then seen on social media partying in a video that the NBA is now investigating amid COVID protocols that bar such activity. Durant would not speak on Irving’s situation, saying they support him 100%.

Irving (personal) isn’t expected to play in any of the Nets’ three games this week, including matchups Tuesday with the Nuggets, Wednesday with the Knicks, and Saturday with the Magic, as Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

LaMelo Ball says he’s such a good rebounder because he played a lot of twenty-one

ESPN’s crew Rachel Nichols, David Fizdale, and Brian Windhorst review Stephen Curry’s struggles in the Golden State Warriors’ win vs. the Toronto Raptors and react to Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball getting his first triple-double, then saying he’s such a good rebounder because he played twenty-one when he was younger.

Despite that he plays in the point guard position, LaMelo grabs 6.3 rebounds per game this season. Worth mentioning that his height is 6’8″ (2.03m).

Twenty-one (21) is a simple basketball variation usually played by at least three players on a half-court. The game is individually-based, and the object is to score exactly 21 points before your challengers. By individual, it means you do not have any teammates within the game, and you are responsible solely for your points and overall performance, while other players are attempting the same.

Basic rules:
• A 3-point shot earns you 3 points.
• Regular shots made inside the 3-point line are worth 2 points.
• Free-throws made from the free-throw line is worth a point.

For detailed rules click here.

So if you’ve ever thought about how to improve your rebound skills, the twenty-one basketball game may be the answer.

Thunder’s Andre Roberson’s girlfriend Rachel Demita is crazy about basketball

Since 2018, the Oklahoma City Thunder swingman Andre Roberson is dating vlogger Rachel Demita. That is maybe not the most well know couple but truly one of the most sporty ones.

Roberson himself comes from an athlete’s family. His father, John Roberson, graduated from New Mexico State, where he was a member of the men’s basketball team and played 12 years professionally overseas after college. His mother, Lisa Roberson, was also an All-American at New Mexico State in volleyball.

Rachel Demita is also not an average girl. The 30-year-old Demita was a basketball player. She had an impressive playing career and was an All-American basketball player, and earned a full-ride division 1 scholarship to Old Dominion University in 2008. 

But later made an even better career off the court as she became popular from hosting and producing the first-ever TV show broadcast through a video game, NBA 2KTV.

Her IG features lots of photos and videos where she performs spectacular tricks with a ball.

Ex-Nets star Derrick Coleman believes in Nets potential: “Sky’s the limit with that team”

The 1st pick by the New Jersey Nets in the 1990 NBA draft, Derrick Coleman, evaluated this year’s Brooklyn Nets team’s potential.

“The potential is the sky’s the limit with that team. I just see the struggles right now just going to be better for you later on in the season. Just have to keep continuing to work,” Colemen said in the interview with the New York Post.

Former NBA power forward had a lot of good words about the Nets team and its lineup.

“Kevin [Durant] is going to be one of the greatest scores we’ve ever seen play the game. To me right now, nobody can mess with Kyrie Irving; he comes from a lineage of point guards. When your godfather is Rod Strickland, I need not say any more about that. But we have to really concentrate and focus on the defensive end of the basketball court and talking,” Coleman said.

He also believes that this Nets team can show good results because the players are well played together.

“I can see us coming out of the East. I don’t know if we’re able to win the championship right now. But all that goes back to where you don’t have a real training camp, you got a brand-new coach, so listening to his philosophies about the game of basketball. Also, you got to create that chemistry,” Colemen added.

Derrick Coleman played 15 seasons for 4 teams. His career averages were 16.5 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in 781 regular-season games. He was selected to play in 1 All-Star Game.

In this VladTV clip, a four-time NBA champion John Salley opened up about the Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo being named the MVP of the NBA two years in a row, which led to the Giannis vs. LeBron James comparison.

Salley pointed out that Antetokounmpo is an international face, which benefits the NBA’s global exposure, but John thinks LeBron James should’ve been given the award for this last season.

Moving along, John reacted to Giannis signing a five-year, $228 million contract, which he says isn’t far off from the $36 million a year that Shaquille O’Neal was making.

In the end, Salley turned his attention to James Harden, who he believes will stay in Houston because of his popularity in China. He also compares Harden to Dennis Rodman.

The Boston Celtics lost 108-107 to the Indiana Pacers after the Celtics star Jayson Tatum missed a final second step-back three-pointer, similar to what beat Milwaukee on opening night.

The 22-year-old Tatum was self-critical and commented on team’s last attack, per Tom Westerholm:

“Nah, that was on me. I should have put more pressure on the defense. Obviously, that’s a shot I take a lot, and I can hit, but I’ve got to put pressure on the refs and the defense in that situation. It wasn’t the exact play we drew up, but I should have just put more pressure on them. That’s on me in that situation,” Tatum said after the match.

Tatum finished with 25 points on 9-for-21 shooting, five assists, and 11 rebounds, but was not satisfied with his performance:

“Yeah, I take full blame. I didn’t play nearly as well as I needed to, as I’m capable of, and teammates, people expect of me. I’ve got to take that on the chin,” added the Celtics player.

Rockets’ Christian Wood believes James Harden and John Wall will make him a star

The Houston Rockets’ new signing, Christian Wood, left a solid impression in the exhibition games before the 2020/2021 NBA season.

The 25-year-old big man believes he could get even better, as he is ready to learn from players like James Harden and John Wall. Here’s what Wood stated after the Rockets’ training session, via USA Today Sports:

“I think playing with those two, they’re gonna make me a star. Through practices and one preseason game, we felt the chemistry between each other. We haven’t even had a full season together. The sky’s the limit for us,” Wood said.

Wood has played 4 seasons for 5 teams. His career averages are 9.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 0.6 assists in 113 regular-season games.

Rockets acquired the free agent center from Detroit as part of a sign-and-trade. In the offseason, he was valued as an excellent reinforcement for any team.

Malik Beasley goes public with his love for Larsa Pippen

Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Malik Beasley may have taken his relationship with model Larsa Pippen to the next level.

The 24-year-old player went on her Instagram and pretty much confirmed that he loves Larsa (age 46) – who, by the way, is still legally married to the NBA and Bulls legend Scottie Pippen.

When she posted “What makes you the happiest?” on an Instagram post, he commented “U” with a heart emoji.

Photo via dailymail.co.uk

Beasley career averages are 8.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.0 assists in 220 regular-season games. He was excellent for the Wolves in 14 games last season, averaging 20.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in 33.1 minutes, and in the offseason agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal with Minnesota.

Previously, Beasley was noticed in public with Larsa Pippen, and a few days after the revelation of the photos, Beasley’s wife Montana Yao filed for divorce.

Previously, Irving has denied multiple requests to speak with the media since preseason camp started on Dec. 1. He decided to avoid the media to ensure that his message is conveyed properly. The league issued a $25,000 fine to Irving and the Nets for such behavior.

Doug Gottlieb says the NBA is so drunk they gave a max contract to Paul George

The 30-year-old Paul George signed a super-max extension with the Clippers (worth up to $226 million over the next five seasons), and Fox Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb is incredulous but unsurprised.

It seems to be an issue with the entire NBA that has clubs giving huge contracts to players who haven’t earned them.

In his opinion, it makes no sense to give the second-best player on an underachieving team such a huge contract, but the NBA seems to have no inhibitions when it comes to contracts.

This George agreement is the third-largest contract in NBA history. Previously James Harden had signed $228 million over six-year, and Damian Lillard also had a six-year deal worth $257 million.

Paul Pierce is getting sued by his weed man over unpaid wages

NBA legend and now ESPN analyst, the 43-year-old Paul Pierce is being sued over an alleged weed deal gone bad, according to TMZ Sports. The 2008 NBA champion and Finals MVP was sued by Kenneth Johnson, who works in the weed market.

Pierce appointed Mr. Johnson in 2016 to “design and develop a warehouse to cultivate cannabis from inception to completion”, according to the lawsuit. Disagreements between the parties had arisen when Pierce decided to cut Johnson’s payment from $10,000 to $4,000 per month until Pierce had the product to sell at the full rate.

Johnson declares that Pierce reduced pay to get the business operating because they couldn’t get weed plants into the warehouse until 2018. The former basketball player motivated his decision by saying that he has to pay salaries to employees and can’t store the product at the full amount.

Johnson reportedly wasn’t getting his full payment as of Nov. 19 and decided to leave the business. Johnson is accusing Pierce of backpay “plus unpaid overtime, missed meal period violations and more”, according to TMZ Sports.

James Harden is one of the greatest scorers in the NBA’s past decade. Harden’s career averages are 25.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.3 assists in 833 regular-season games. He has won one MVP Award and has been selected to play in eight All-Star Games.

During his career, he has been repeatedly criticized for his defense, and now 31-year-old shooting guard missed individual Rockets workout after failing to report for team practice. Harden was also posting photos to social media while at a birthday celebration without a mask during the pandemic.

Basketball analyst and sports talk radio host Doug Gottlieb reacts to James Harden no-showing two days of practice with the Houston Rockets and thinks his actions lately only expose why he hasn’t won anything in NBA career.

Hornets’ Cody Martin on LaMelo Ball: “It’s been fun so far”

Charlotte Hornets small forward Cody Martin is getting ready for his second season in the NBA. After two official practice sessions, Martin is impressed with the team rookie LaMelo Ball’s capabilities and talent. He noted the 19-year-old LaMelo’s excellent ball passing skills and pace. Per the USA Today:

“It’s hard to do comparisons, but he’s a really willing passer. His first instinct is to facilitate. Obviously, it’s fun for guys like us on the wings who will run the floor and just constantly looking up and able to keep your head on the ball because you never know what’s gonna come toward you,” Martin praised the teammate.

Martin also noted that LaMelo is still a young player, and despite his great talent, he is willing to work and enjoy basketball every time on the court:

“He gets it. He likes to play. He’s active when he gets a break up up the floor. He’s fast-paced. We’re always looking for a pass from him. It’s been fun so far,” Martin continued.

“I just think that you kind of already get a sense from him that he’s the type of player who’s comfortable in a lot of different settings and environments. It doesn’t matter if it’s the first day or the hundredth day, he’s going to come in and be Melo. He’s going to come in, and, you know, just have fun with it. Obviously, there’s a lot of things he’s still trying to learn, and he asks a lot of questions. He’s a willing learner as well because people forget that he’s young.

“He’s really, really young still. So, it’s pretty cool to see that he comes in and he’s willing to learn, just still trying to have fun with it,” Martin ended his interview.

Yogi Ferrell could go to Europe as Barcelona shows interest

Euroleague regular season top team, after 12 rounds, FC Barcelona are still searching the market with the hope of adding strength to the team.

According to Sportando, FC Barcelona are interested in signing the 27-year-old, free agent point guard Yogi Ferrell. He currently has no contract, as his two-year deal with the Sacramento Kings expired.

The current 31-year-old point guard Thomas Heurtel does not live up to Barca coach Sarunas Jasikevicius’ expectations and is not suitable for his coaching style.

Ferrell has played 249 games in the NBA with the Nets, Mavs, and Kings. Last season, he averaged 4.4 points (30 percent three-pointers), a rebound, and 1.4 assists in 11 minutes per game.

Lakers GM Rob Pelinka’s offseason strategy was to make the roster younger and faster

The Los Angeles Lakers made some surprising and impressive moves in the offseason free agency market, and general manager Rob Pelinka explained his argumentation for such decisions.

Pelinka talked to journalists ahead of the Lakers’ first workout on Friday, revealing what was his reasoning when getting Dennis Schröder and Montrezl Harrell to the organization (per Harrison Faigen/Silver Screen & Roll):

Pelinka notes that the Lakers got younger roster players and much faster ones as 27-year-old Schröder and 26-year-old Harrell are direct replacements for 34-year-olds Rajon Rondo and Dwight Howard.

The pair signings not only raised the Lakers’ offense but further gave them two fresh and skilled basketball players in their control opportunity to build a dynasty team.

Ex-Lakers Danny Green (age 33) and Dwight Howard (age 34) will play in Philadelphia, Rajon Rondo (age 34) in Atlanta and JaVale McGee (age 32) joined the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Lakers leader LeBron James has previously pointed out the fact that the team got younger by adding Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell:

“We did get younger. We got a 27-year-old point guard. We got a 27-year-old Sixth Man of the Year award in Trez. We got younger. We got Marc who’s Defensive Player of the Year. His IQ. Not only playing against him in the NBA but also playing against him versus Spain with the national team,” LeBron told Allie Clifton, Richard Jefferson, and Channing Frye on Road Trippin’ podcast.

Derrick Rose shows how he prepares for the 2020-21 NBA season

2011 NBA most valuable player, Derrick Rose, who is now 32 years old, is preparing for the 2020-21 NBA season. Despite the experience of injuries, Rose works in the gym individually, improving his skills and abilities.

Rose will enter the second year of his contract with the Detroit Pistons. However, it has already been announced that Derrick Rose should not be a starter for the Detroit Pistons this season. Killian Hayes should start as the starting point guard.

Derrick Rose on Killian Hayes:

“He has great poise for a young guard. He’s left-handed so (defenders) are probably going to force him right…my job coming in (training camp) is to try to make it uncomfortable (on the court)”, Rose said.

The 32-year-old explosive point guard had a good first season with Detroit, averaging 18.1 points (on 49.0 percent shooting), 2.4 rebounds, and 5.6 assists.

The Lakers and LeBron James have agreed on a 2-year, $85M extension, and this sets up James to become a free agent in 2023, which just so happens to be the same year his son could become eligible to enter the NBA Draft. James would turn 39 during the 2023-2024 NBA season.

Stephen A. Smith says the Westbrook-Wall trade is a bad move

Following the news that John Wall and Russell Westbrook were finally traded for each other after weeks of rumors, ESPN’s highest-paid sportscaster Stephen A. Smith reacted to this trade labeling it as a “bad move”.

The Houston Rockets are sending Westbrook to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Wall and a lottery-protected 2023 first-round NBA draft pick.

Find out why Smith doesn’t like this exchange trade:

Russell Westbrook averaged 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, and seven assists per game in his first season with the Rockets last season. In comparison, John Wall missed the entire season due to an injury.

This trade has a lot of questions and will shape part of the upcoming NBA season.

Boston Celtics member and one of the biggest young talents in the NBA, Jayson Tatum, got a new tattoo on this body. The 22-year-old forward displayed what his new tattoo looks like on his Instagram story.

Photo: ClutchPoints

It is not the first time Tatum decorates his body with a massive back tattoo as he already had a “Gods will” note on the back. Previously, he was roasted after fans realize that the tattoo contains a grammar mistake. Now he fixed it to correct spell “God’s will” and put a new piece of ink on his back’s left side.

The body art reflects the street sign of Archer Ave in Saint Louis, Missouri, which is where Tatum was born and raised. There’s also an illustration of a house right under the street sign. That could be his childhood home.

The superstar forward and the Celtics have agreed to a five-year contract extension worth $195 million, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The rookie max extension could end up being worth close to $200 million.

John Hollinger doubts Pistons decision to sign Deividas Sirvydis: “This has to be a joke”

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, prospect basketball player from Lithuania, Deividas Sirvydis, is joining the Detroit Pistons on a three-year deal:

NBA news reviewer John Hollinger took to Twitter to express his doubts about the Pistons’ decision to sign the 20-year-old Sirvydis:

“This has to be a joke. Was overmatched in Lithuanian League last year. Scored 1 point in two Israeli domestic league games this season,” Hollinger wrote on Twitter.

According to the latest reports on the details of the deal, the third season of the contract with the Pistons has no financial guarantees – the team will have the opportunity not to extend the cooperation with Sirvydis after two years without reimbursing the amount for the last season.

Hollinger has criticized the player for not showing a competitive game in his domestic league last year despite being labeled as big hope in the native country and an awful start in the Israel basketball league.

It is reported and expected that Sirvydis, who is moving from Jerusalem’s Hapoel to Detroit, will spend a lot of time in the G-League with the Grand Rapids Drive.

Larsa Pippen is dating Timberwolves Malik Beasley

Larsa Pippen, an American TV personality and model, was recognized with the Minnesota Timberwolves Malik Beasley days after the player signed a $60 million deal. The couple was spotted holding hands.

The 46-year-old Larsa is still married to Chicago Bulls player Scottie Pippen. She cheated on Scottie with rapper Future and recently revealed that she had a relationship with center Tristan Thompson before he hook-up with Khloe Kardashian.

The Denver Nuggets selected Malik Beasley with the 19th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. In February 2020, he was traded to Minnesota as part of a multi-team trade deal.

Promising 24-year-old guard/forward Malik Beasley has been charged with fifth-degree drug possession and the threat of violence following a Sept. 27 arrest in Plymouth, Minnesota, but was later released without charge. Beasley is also married to IG model Montana Yao.

Beasley averaged 20.7 points in 14 games with the Wolves shooting 43% from three-point range.

His investment partners are business friend Maverick Carter, sports agent Rich Paul, teammate Anthony Davis and Warriors player Draymond Green.

It was common knowledge in the past that James was a fan of Tequila. Per thespiritsbusiness.com:

“I knew the first time I tasted Lobos 1707 Tequila that it was special. When I learned more about the brand story and leadership team, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. Lobos 1707 is about celebrating the strength of the group and bringing people together. It’s about shared passion and values. I love sipping Tequila with my friends, and we want a brand that speaks to us,” James said.

Lobos 1707 will be available in California, New York, Florida, and Mexico stores soon.

Marlen P. (age 27) is the longtime girlfriend of AD (age 27), and they both have a daughter named Nala (born 2018). There were reports a year ago that they were going to get married (engaged in November 2019), but so far they haven’t done so.

Davis previously was married to Brittney Griner (age 30), an American professional basketball player for the Phoenix Mercury.

Larsa Pippen: “I was kinda seeing Tristan Thompson before Khloe Kardashian”

Larsa Pippen, the ex-wife of Chicago Bulls great Scottie Pippen, sat down for an exclusive interview with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn on the “Hollywood Raw podcast”.

Opening up for the first time about why she blames Kanye for derailing her longtime friendship with Kim Kardashian and responding head-on to all the Tristan Thompson hook up rumors, per Thesportsrush:

“I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloe. Before Khloe or any of them knew he existed. I was seeing him, I had him come to LA. I brought him to a party Kim had. I introduced him to all of them. Then a week later, or 10 days later, he started seeing Khloe. Which is fine, I don’t even care. It’s whatever,” Larsa said in the interview.

The reality star didn’t hold back as she blamed Kanye for “brainwashing” the family, what her first date was like with Future, and the time Travis Scott accused Pippen of hitting on him in a club.

“I’m the type of person that doesn’t chase what’s not for me. I will never chase a man; I will never put a leash on a man. I don’t do that. I feel like, let you be great. If you want to be with other people, go ahead. I’m great by myself,” she continued.

Brian Scalabrine says Kevin Durant doesn’t make teammates better as LeBron James does

On his podcast Scal and Pals, former NBA champion Brian Scalabrine compared the biggest stars in the NBA – LeBron James and Kevin Durant – and their influence on their teammates, per USA Today:

“I know a lot of people are looking at the best version of KD before the Achilles injury, or Kyrie from years ago – if everyone was their best, maybe, but that’s not how basketball works. Kyrie, when he won his title, he played with LeBron James, who makes everyone around him better. KD is not LeBron; he’s a very different player and isn’t someone who makes everyone around him better like that. I don’t think they’re tougher than a lot of teams, and I don’t see them being a top-10 defensive team,” Scalabrine said.

“I don’t think their talent is good enough to win a championship,” the 11-year NBA veteran with the New Jersey Nets, Boston Celtics, and Chicago Bulls also added.

Rod Strickland on Derrick Rose: “He is one of the best”

During the most recent episode of Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson live talk, long-time NBA star Rod Strickland opens up about his connection with the Detroit Pistons star guard Derrick Rose and what makes him unique in the NBA, via BasketballNetwork.com:

“Derrick Rose is probably one of the best people I’ve ever been around in my entire life. One of the most humble guys. He is incredible, and I’ve watched him grow and mature. Derrick Rose reminded me a lot of me. He wasn’t really comfortable in the limelight. He didn’t really want to talk, and he just wanted to play basketball. Now that you hear him speak, he is comfortable.

Derrick Rose is a competitor, and he wants to be that guy. Once he got injured, he pushed a lot. He was trying to show people he was that MVP. When I watched him play, and I always told people that he didn’t lose his step, he could still jump. He might have lost a little vertical, but he didn’t lose much. Derrick Rose is Derrick Rose still to this day, he is one of the best,” Strickland said.

Rod Strickland was a great point guard in the 90s, and after some time together with the 2011 season MVP, when he helped Rose recover from his ACL injury, he saw the other side of him.
