With trade season already in full swing, expect these players in different teams before February.
1. Paul George
2. Julius Randle
3. DeAndre Jordan
Trade rumors surrounding JaVale is popping out anew.
Who would win in this trade?
1. Cavs too slow to come back?
2. Greek Freak not Alone Anymore
3. Cavs wasn’t expecting Bucks as a team
Milwaukee Bucks is a strong offensive team with their core Giannis Antetokounmpo. But is their power enough to make Rockets collapse?
1 – Giannis as he usually does
2 – Limit Harden’s Threes
3 – Box Out Capela
The Bucks need a legitimate center to back up the Greek Freak and Eric Bledsoe
The question is: which team will benefit if they acquire DeAndre Jordan?
Clippers is interested in three young Bucks!
Having Bledsoe around makes life easier especially for Giannis Antetokuonmpo

Aggressiveness: Worked Both Ways
Eric Bledsoe is finally getting out of Phoenix
Phoenix will get Greg Monroe and a first round pick for Eric Bledsoe

With the Milwaukee Bucks having a great player like Giannis Antetokounmpo, it is undeniably the teams’ strength. The Greek Freaks’ offensive power had brought their team to victory. But the real deal is how long can the Greek Freak carry his team the way he does?
Giannis has dominance in Bucks’ offense, yes now it is very much effective for the Milwaukee Bucks because they win games or keep a game close with their losses but it’s not as though Giannis can always carry his team up to the finals.
The Greek Freak, being the greatest strength of Milwaukee will be a major loophole in the long run. He is the main frame of the offense, which will make it easier for them to be stopped as time passes. Why? Because the league only needs to shut down one player to shut down the whole team – this is the consequence that the Bucks may face if they’ll keep on relying solely on Giannis.
The offense of the Bucks shall be widespread for their team to have the real threatening form, one player is terrifying but one player only can only win games but team work will win championships.
The Bucks must start on working on their offense, maybe try to let Giannis pass – which is a good strategy because the league would expect that it will be The Greek Freak who’ll pull the trigger for the team, thus attracting most of the defense and giving his teammates more open looks for easier baskets rather than pushing his way through the wall all by himself.
A great scorer, once threat has been firmly established will be a good extra passer, this is the real power behind a great individual offensive player, making the game easier for your team not because you score but because you pass to them and let them have their role on the team’s journey to the league.
The Greek Freak Giannis Antetokounmpo is just relentless in every game
He currently averages with terrifying numbers – 36.8 points per game, 10.3 Rebounds per game, and 5.3 assists per game. These numbers are humongous, particularly his scoring ability and efficiency every game.
Don’t get surprised if he will be included in the top candidates for this season’s MVP
36 Points per Game
10 Rebounds per Game
5 Assists per Game

Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics are totally the other way around compared to what they showed during the preseason games.
“I want to go back to what I left [in Milwaukee]. I was real close with [coach] Jason Kidd. I had great relationships with Giannis [Antetokounmpo] and Khris Middleton. I was comfortable there. I felt like I let them down, cheated them for two years. They paid me $8 million to be, in my eyes, a subpar player. They invested millions of dollars for me to be on top of my s—, and when you’re not on top of your s—, it shows. I’ll be 30 next summer. If they just give me the chance, I can make it up. I owe them.” Mayo said.
Milwaukee is not one of the elite teams that’s gonna challenge for a championship – Glen Rice.

Today, Ray Allen officially retires from NBA. Check out his Letter to his 13 year old self at Player’s Tribune . He was basically been retired for two years though.
Allen was the fifth pick of the 1996 NBA Draft. He has two championships (Celtics and Heat) and multiple All-star appearances. He is an all-time leader in 3-pointers in NBA history. In the Olympics, he has a gold medal as well.
Thank you for 18 years GOAT shooter.
Here’s a portion of Ray Allen’s Letter to my younger self….
The hell you experience when you get off that bus will be temporary. Basketball will take you far away from that school yard. You will become far more than just a basketball player. You’ll get to act in movies. You’ll travel the world. You will become a husband, and the father of five amazing children.
Now, the most important question in your life isn’t, “Who am I supposed to be?” or even, “What do I have to do to win another championship?”
It’s, “Daddy, guess what happened in math class today?”
That’s the reward that awaits you at the end of your journey.
Go to the court. Stay at the court.
Get your work in, young fella.
Most people will never really get to know the real you. But they’ll know your work.
