NBA Eric Gordon and New York Knicks Working On A Deal

67 people viewing this

| By italiansteve - 1 hour ago


The 2016 period of NBA free agency has officially begun, and the New York Knicks are acting swiftly. New York has already entered negotiations with Joakim Noah, with a projected contract of $72 million over four years.

The Knicks are working just as diligently to fill the void at shooting guard.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, New York has singled out a shooting guard as the preferred choice: Eric Gordon.
This could be a potentially rewarding endeavor, but there’s a significant red flag that’s waving violently in the skies of New York.

Gordon finished the 2015-16 season with averages of 15.2 points, 2.7 assists, 2.2 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 2.5 3-point field goals made per game. He did so on a slash line of .418/.384/.888, which displays his most appealing trait.

Gordon is one of the best shooters in the NBA, as evidenced by his average of 2.4 3-point field goals made on 41.7 percent shooting over the past two seasons.

Furthermore, Gordon played AAU alongside Derrick Rose. Rose, of course, was traded from the Chicago Bulls to the Knicks, and will be the starting point guard for New York in 2016-17.

Stylistically, Gordon and Rose could flourish in Jeff Hornacek‘s offense.

Unfortunately, Gordon has missed at least 18 games due to injury in seven consecutive seasons. Thus, while the appeal is clear, it’s hard not to feel as though the Knicks are making a significant gamble.

MMA Daniel Cormier: Lifestyle made Jon Jones 'a middle-aged man at 28'

5 people viewing this

| By triznathaniel - 2 hours ago


Quote:

The way Daniel Cormier sees it, the Jon Jones we saw against Ovince Saint Preux at UFC 197 is the fighter we're going to witness from now on.

A bulked-up Jones plodded methodically through his unanimous decision victory over Saint Preux in Las Vegas, a far cry from the fluid and dynamic striker fans have come to expect over the years.

Jones attributes this to a simple case of ring rust (it was his first fight in nearly 16 months) and of adjusting to a last-minute change in opponents (OSP substituted for an injured Cormier).

But Cormier believes that when the two tangle for the UFC light heavyweight title in the main event of UFC 200 on July 9, we're going to see the same Jones we saw against Saint Preux.

"He'll be tough, he'll always be tough," Cormier said during a Thursday conference call. "He's a good fighter. But, you know, nothing's free. Nothing's free. So, the Jon that showed up against Ovince Saint Preux is the guy who's going to be in the Octagon on July 9."

As Cormier sees it, the partying lifestyle that led Jones into various legal troubles and ultimately caused him to be stripped of the championship last year has taken a toll on Jones. While Jones appears to be in the prime of his athletic career at age 28, Cormier says there are a lot of miles on the tires.

"All the partying, all the other stuff, you have to pay for that, and now we're seeing where, it's starting to take a toll. It's time for all the outlandish living and burning the candle at two ends, and now we're getting to the middle where it starts to burn out. So that's who he is today. He's not the guy from before. He may be 28 years old, but in reality, he's lived on this earth much longer with the long nights and all the other stuff he's done."

Cormier, for his part, is 37 years old, but according to the current holder of the UFC light heavyweight title belt, Jones is the one entering middle age.

"I've been here longer, in age I'm 37, but I haven't burnt it at both ends and become a middle-aged man at 28 years old," Cormier said. "That's you today. You're that slow guy that was in the Octagon on April 23d that looked like garbage."

MMA Dan Henderson vs Michael Bisping 2 reportedly agreed to for Middleweight title in October

3 people viewing this

| By BoiiDoIt34 - 2 hours ago

It seems Dan Henderson's campaign actually worked, as undisclosed sources close to Brazilian outlet, Combate, claim there is a verbal agreement on the rematch between Hendo and the current UFC middleweight champion, Michael Bisping, scheduled for an event in October.

Probably the 45-year old's last crack at a UFC title, Dan Henderson (32-14) would take on Bisping (29-7) coming off a stellar head kick and elbow KO win over Hector Lombard in June, at UFC 199. However, Hendo still carries a 3-6 record in his last 9 fights, with wins over Mauricio Rua and Tim Boetsch in the middle of losses to the likes of Daniel Cormier, Vitor Belfort, Gegard Mousasi, and others. The Lombard win represented the last fight on his UFC contract, but if this report is true, then his new contract includes a title shot.


As for Bisping, who has become the target of multiple call outs from other middleweight contenders, it represents a chance to avenge his devastating KO loss to Henderson back at UFC 100. Currently riding a four-fight winning streak with wins over C.B. Dollaway, Thales Leites, Anderson Silva and the stunning 1st round KO upset over Luke Rockhold, the Henderson fight would be Bisping's third outing in 2016 and his first title defense.

Bloody Elbow will provide updates on the possibility of Bisping vs. Hendo 2 when they become available.

NBA Article: Ten Reasons Why Michael Jordan Is Not the Greatest NBA Player of All Time

162 people viewing this

| By NewLegends - 2 hours ago

These isn't my opinion but I wanted to see what Bx thought about this.



10. He Won His Titles In an Era of When Expansion Teams Were Added, Diluting the Overall Quality of the NBA

Right before and during his championship reign in the 90’s, several teams were added to the league, including the Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors, and Vancouver Grizzlies. It is a widely known truth that expansion teams rarely ever have winning seasons in their first few years in the league, as the talent pool is diminished due to the fact that a team has to fill a roster with completely new players, many of which have possibly never played professional sports before. Michael Jordan won 6 championships between 1991 and 1998; between 1988 and 1996, six teams were added to the league, making the era of Michael Jordan one that had lots of newbie teams.


9. MJ Couldn’t Get the Washington Bullets to the Playoffs


I get it, he was way past his prime and not the Michael Jordan that averaged 32, 8, and 8 in the 80s. Still, we are talking about the “greatest player of all time,” only three years removed from his most recent championship run in Chicago. Certainly, you would expect that the greatest player of all time would be able to help his team get at the very least into the playoffs? Perhaps his leadership and wisdom could have outdone his ability at the time, but no, the Wizards did not make the playoffs in either of the two years MJ was with the team.

8. He Was a Huge Ball Hog

Much like Kobe Bryant in today’s NBA, Michael Jordan was a huge ball hog, often taking as many as 30 shots a game in the 86-87 season alone. Basketball is a team sport, and hogging the ball like he did back then is a large reason why the bulls were not able to make it out of the first round of the playoffs his first three seasons in the league.



7. Michael Jordan Couldn’t Get Past the First Round of the Playoffs Without Scottie Pippen



In the 1980s, the world was inebriated with the potent shotmaking ability that was Michael Jordan – in his third year in the league, he averaged an astonishing 37.1 points, which is the highest point total average of all time out of all NBA players not named Wilt Chamberlain. His first three years in the league, the Chicago Bulls did make it to the playoffs; despite averaging an absurd 43 points per game in the 1986 playoffs, as well as incredibly high scoring numbers in 1985 and 1987, Michael Jordan was not able to get his team out of the first round of the playoffs in those three years.

With Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan found an athlete who is widely considered one of the greatest defenders of all time. With Pippen, the Bulls finally had an incredibly pesky defender who constantly took the Bulls to deep playoff runs. Interesting note: Pippen has a better career winning record than Michael Jordan.

6. The NBA Teams He Defeated In the Finals Were Overrated

One of the staples of MJ’s legacy is that each of the teams he defeated in the finals had very memorable superstars. Although this is true, when looked at a bit deeper, these teams may be a little overrated. Let’s take a quick look at the teams Michael Jordan defeated in the finals and how they might be a little overrated:

1991 – Los Angeles Lakers – a good team, but point guard Magic Johnson was on his way out, and James Worthy was not nearly as effective as he was in the 80s. Also, the team no longer had Michael Cooper like they had in the 1980s, who was widely considered one of the best defensive players of all time. Needless to say, this Lakers team also no longer had the talents of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar like they did in the 80s – this Lakers team was a far cry from the Lakers that dominated the 80s.

1992 – Portland Trail Blazers – Outside of Clyde Drexler, this team boasted the legendary talents of…Jerome Kersey and Clifford Robinson. Moving on!

1993 – Phoenix Suns – Probably one of the better teams that MJ played, the Suns were led by then-MVP Charles Barkley, who was one of the league’s best power forwards. Outside of Barkley, this team lacked quality interior defense, a persistent theme throughout Jordan’s title run that was also a big reason why the Bulls won the 1991 and 1992 NBA finals.

1996 – Seattle Supersonics – the famous duel between Gary Payton and Michael Jordan, unfortunately, was incredibly one-sided. The Seattle Supersonics really only had two good players, Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp. Kemp was an effective forward, but his work ethic left much to be desired, and the team did not have the depth that the Bulls had, with Pippen and Dennis Rodman working as incredible defenders while Michael Jordan constantly took shot after shot, making only 46% of his shots, which is low for the “greatest player of all time.”

1997-1998 – Utah Jazz – Probably the best team Jordan faced in the finals, this Jazz team was admittedly stocked with high-level talent, which included the likes of John Stockton and Karl Malone. Still, this team paled in comparison to the 1980’s Utah Jazz, who had defensive presence Mark Eaton to stop the offensive teams in the low post.

As we can see, the teams Jordan faced in 1990s finals either had low post defensive issues, were not as good as they were in the 80s (which is why they could be overrated), or lacked great depth.

5. He Was Not a Great Playmaker


Michael Jordan wasn’t a horrible playmaker – although he was often selfish with the ball, he did average about 5 assists per game for his career. Still, his playmaking abilities left much to be desired, as his strategy was often to use his virtuosic scoring to lead his teams to victory, rather than to pass the ball to teammates in order to create difficult switches for the defense. This strategy only worked well when he had Pippen and either Horace Grant or Dennis Rodman to contribute to a deep defensive run, and did not work in the 80s before the Bulls drafted Scottie Pippen.


4. He Constantly Lost in the 1980s

Michael Jordan lost to the Detroit Pistons three straight times in the playoffs from 1987-1990, and never made it to the finals in the era of the “Showtime” Lakers, Bird’s deeply talented roster of Celtics, Erving’s 76ers, and a Utah Jazz team that was in their dominant prime. In the 1980s, NBA teams were much better and much deeper than they were in the 1990s, mostly due to the fact that the 90s were littered with low-quality expansion teams, as previously mentioned in this article.

3. Several Other Players Are Qualified for the Throne

Bill Russell led his team to eleven championships, Wilt Chamberlain actually averaged 50 points and 25 rebounds one season, Magic Johnson could play point guard as well as he could play center, Larry Bird was both an offensive threat and a great playmaker who dominated in the 1980s, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the all-time scoring champion with an equal number of championship rings to MJ and even six MVP trophies on top of that. I am not saying that Michael Jordan is definitively not the greatest NBA player of all time, but there are several other players who could compete for that title. Even Lebron James is a more efficient shooter and better playmaker than Michael ever was.



2. In 1998, the NBA Was Really Bad, Giving the Bulls An Easy Path to Be Number One

The 90s are mistakenly seen as a golden era of basketball – in 1998, the year MJ won his sixth title, there were six teams that did not make it past twenty wins. Wow! That means over 20% of the NBA lost more than sixty games, marking one of the least talented years of NBA basketball in all of sports history. Michael Jordan essentially cake-walked to the playoffs and to the finals that year, as the league was very one-sided in favor of just a few teams.

1. After His First Retirement, His Bulls Were Practically As Good As Before He Retired


When a great player leaves his team, typically the team falls apart after he leaves. This can be seen in a number of instances: when Lebron left the Cavs in 2010, the Cavs record dropped by over 40 wins the following season. When Shaq left the Lakers, they had difficulty making it to the postseason the first few years following his departure. And even as recently as this past season, the Celtics have become a shell of themselves after Pierce and Garnett left.

So when the “greatest player of all time” left the Chicago Bulls after his first retirement, you would imagine they lost by like, at least 20 more games the following season, right?

In actuality, led by the defensive grit of Scottie Pippen, the Bulls dropped only two more games than in the previous season. Yeap, you read that right, two games. With Michael Jordan in the 92-93 season, the Bulls had 57 wins, and in the 93-94 season without Jordan, they had a “paltry” 55 wins. Don’t you think that after the “Greatest Player of All Time” retires, his team would completely sink without him? Think again.

I would prefer having a Jason Kidd type PG in the last 5 minutes of any game over Westbrook. Decision making and Game control is a necessity and a skill that is too overlooked with the flashy play and Stat nerd BS stats like PER etc.

What say you folks?
