Luol Deng won the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award, which should serve as some small consolation amid a season that has, to be frank, sucked for him.
As we know, NBA GMs have an addiction to trading draft picks. How will that play out with respect to this summer's draft?
The Milwaukee Bucks have had, by almost any measure, a disaster of a season. But they're not as bad off as they could be.
The Pistons are, objectively, bad. But they could turn things around in the near future if they make the right calls this summer.
The Phoenix Suns might not make the playoffs this year. That's OK. They'll be just fine whether they make it or not, and they would do well to follow the way of the Houston Rockets.
The New York Knicks are weird and the Phil Jackson thing is too, but for Knicks' fans sake, I hope everything works out.
NBA GMs trade so many picks, that by tracing the paths of just four individual picks over three years, I can connect 20 different NBA teams to them. No, that's not a joke.
The aftermath of the Luol Deng trade is starting to set in… and I don't like it. Not one bit.
They say a wise man hopes for the best but prepares for the worst. Or if they don't, I do. Similarly, a foolish man ignores the worst and prepares for the best, secure in his own superiority.
I am a foolish man.
So, it turns out that NBA players don't like it when you take away their starting jobs. Who knew?
