Lebron James Compares The Warriors To The Patriots

Published

on

Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are now on ropes, after losing to the Warriors 106-100.

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson combined for just 11 points in the game. Curry was 1-10 from 3 point range, but thanks to Kevin Durant’s 43 performance the Warriors were still able to win.

Lebron praised his team but attributed to small mental errors costing the Cavs another game.

“You know that you can never relax. You know if you relax, they make you pay, and making you pay could cost you a game,” James said. “So, it’s tough, but it’s all part of the competition, which I love and which I continue to lace them up [for] every night.”

“It’s almost like playing the Patriots,” James added. “You can’t have mistakes. They’re not going to beat themselves.”

Durant hit a 26-foot 3 from the left wing with 45 seconds left to give Golden State the lead for good.

Lebron also went to discuss the impact of KD.

“That’s why they’ve retooled this team,” said James, “[That’s why they] went out and got KD, to where there’s really not much pressure on — you know, I won’t say ‘any of them’ to score, but if one of them has a bad game, they have three or four guys that can actually pick up the load.”

The Best Moments Of The 2018 NBA Draft

Published

on

The NBA Draft is filled with surprising moments. Teams passing on future stars and crazy trades. The draft is beginning and the end for some teams. The 2018 NBA Draft is no different. So check out some of our takeaways for the night.

Best Move: Tray Young & Luke Doncic

The Atlanta Hawks drafted big man Luke Doncic at number 3, after the Kings passed on him. Alot of that had to do with rumors of Doncic not wanting to play in Sacramento. The Hawks traded the rights to Dallas for Tray Young. This was a win-win for both teams. Doncic is a good fit with the Mavs current core and can be the heir apparent to Dirk. This gives him a HOF to learn from during his rookie season. Tray gets to go to East and become the new face of a franchise.

Atlanta also picked up a 2019 first-round pick from the Mavericks that will convey to them next June as long as it falls outside the top five, according to the New York Times’ Marc Stein.

Same Ol Shit: Sacramento Kings Taking Another Big Man

Kings went with Duke product Marvin Bagley III, after reports that Doncic didn’t to play for the Kings. The Kings seem to favor the centers when they could’ve got younger at PF or SF. The team is already filled with big men. The Kings were are also high on Michael Porter Jr., but he fell to 14th in the draft due to some medical questions with his hip.  Not that Bagley is a bad pick, it just the Kings being the Kings.

Biggest Winner: Joell Embiid

WTF Award: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

Tray Young decided to show up to draft with a short suit. We thought that would be the most outrageous suit. Until Shai Gilgegous-Alexander showed up. The Clippers rookie channeled his inner Russell Westbrook with his floral suit.
