1.) D’Angelo Russell Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports Russell just became the first option of a young Nets team to probably an off-the-ball scorer in Golden State with Steph Curry the focal point of the offense. The first-time All-Star excels when he has the ball making decisions on pick-and-rolls, something he may not be able to do with Curry around.

July 27, 2019Jan Rey Obguia0 Comments Now that the dust has (almost) settled for the 2019 NBA Free Agency, it’s time to see the moves and trades from a fantasy perspective.

We have all been there. I like to max out many of my basketball sneakers until their last breathes until I found a way to make THEM all last longer: Buy two or three pairs of budget shoes and rotate them instead of spending it all on a heavily-priced LeBron 16’s or Kobe A.D.’s or numbered Jordans.
