Scottie Pippen: I Don’t See Golden State As A Dynasty

Published

on

The Golden State Warriors are the currently the NBA favorites to win the NBA title for 2018. If they pull it off, the Dubs would have won three championships in fours. Most people would consider them a Dynasty with that title, except for Scottie Pippen.

“You say they’re on a dynasty run, but I don’t see it that way,” Pippen told Dime. “They picked up probably the best player in the game after they won their first championship. I don’t consider that a dynasty run. They went out and got the best player in the game after they won their first championship and after they lost in the Finals defending their first title. I don’t see them as a dynasty, I think bringing Kevin Durant in really changed my respect as to where I rank this team going forward in terms of a dynasty.”

Pippen expounded on his argument, believing that adding Durant after losing the Finals in 2016 is what sets this apart – at least until they win a few more with KD.

“I thought they were organically built up until they went out and got Durant,” Pippen says. “And I think that was the change, but I don’t really see Golden State as a dynasty. Dynasties are teams that does things special, does things different. Even in the year that they won 73 games, they lost the title. So I can’t consider that part of their dynasty. That wasn’t a dynasty season. So then they came back the next season and won a title, so I can’t back track and say let’s add last season to it because Kevin Durant wasn’t with them at that time.”

Dwayne Wade And Lebron James Share The Court One Last Time

Published

on

Dwayne Wade and Lebron James played their final game against each other in the Staple Center on Monday night.

This is a bitter-sweet moment that both players have been dreading since Wade announced that this would be he would be retiring at the end of the year.

James spoke to ESPN about the impact that Wade had on his career. “Obviously, without D-Wade in my career, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this résumé that I have,” said James. “Individually, I think I would still be doing my thing individually, but as far as me accomplishing the team goals that truly mean most to me? Twenty-seven wins in a row. Four straight Finals. Two back-to-back championships. It goes without saying. I wouldn’t be able to accomplish it without him.”

Wade had a chance to send the game into overtime, but Lebron was able to force him into a bad shot from the arch.

“He knew my move at the end that stopped me from getting to my shot,” Wade said. “That’s how well we know each other, man. Just two competitors who enjoy the game of basketball, who love each other and love competing. So I’m glad that in my 16 years that we were on the court together, we was in this game, we’ve made a big impact on and off the court.”

It was clearly tough for both players and great moment to witness.

The Miami Dolphins trailed the Patriots by 5 points with less than 5 seconds left.

With no timeouts and 60 yards to go, the Dolphins called a Lateral. The one play that even player dreams off pulling as a kid.

Gronk was back playing deep expecting a Hailmary. What he didn’t expect was for the team to go for a pull off three laterals. Kenyan Drake took a lateral 52 yards to the end zone. Drake was able to speed pass Gronk for the amazing play.

Dolphins won the game 34-33 with no seconds left on the clock.

Rumor: Lebron Wants Melo To Join The Lakers

Published

Carmelo Anthony might be heading to LA.

A new report from  Joe Vardon of The Athletic, says Lebron James and his camp believe that Anthony, who was told by the Houston Rockets that he no longer had a future with the team just 10 games into the season, can help the Lakers if given the chance.

Anthony, 34, is estranged from the Houston Rockets – still on their payroll for the league-minimum $2.4 million but gone from the team after the two sides decided he was not a fit after just 10 games.

Melo can’t be traded until at least Dec. 15, and sources said there had been no request made by James to Lakers president Magic Johnson or general manager Rob Pelinka to make a deal for his friend.

Lakers are still trying to find the right pieces to surround James with. Let us know what you think about.
