Blessings in disguise to para sa kanya.
Pwede niyang e-build yung body niya while nagpapagaling sa foot injury.
And another reason para mag tank ang thunders and mag gain ng picks

Masyado ng madami picks nila. Andun naman si SGA at Giddey pwede na mag push for playoffs. Medyo matagal na rin silang nagta-tank.

Yup. 19 First and 19 Second. Not bad.
Eventually it'll paid off either trade or maka develop sila ng talent

🔸 FROM THE CHOSEN ONE, TO THE CHOSEN SONS.🔥
LeBron James and sons, Bronny & Bryce are the cover of Sports Illustrated for October 2022 issue.
20 years apart. Time flies.⏳

302095020_1496559687460922_5017481887670310832_n.jpg



🔸 LeBron James says he’d ‘definitely’ be looking at who has 1st-round picks from 2024 to 2027 because of chance to play with his sons.
Bronny James could be a candidate to be a one-and-done player if he decides to attend college, which means he’d be eligible for the 2024 NBA Draft while Bryce James is a very solid shooter and has the length to become an elite player some day. He’s grown a ton over the last few years and is now taller than his older brother.

REPORT: The New York Knicks and Utah Jazz don't rule out restarting Donovan Mitchell trade talks.
Neither Utah nor New York is ruling out restarting the talks before the start of training camps in late September, sources said.

🔸 BREAKING: RJ Barrett is finalizing a four-year rookie extension with the New York Knicks that could be worth up to $120 million, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Three Largest Contract in New York Knicks history💰
💰RJ Barrett: four-year, $120M
💰Julius Randle: four-year, $117M
💰Jalen Brunson: four-year, $104M


🔸 Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson on his Philippine home debut:
“It feels great. I always hear them even though I’m on the other side of the world, I hear them through social media.”
“I know Filipinos got my back and I got theirs as well ... We’re building something special so let's get it.”
Clarkson averaged 25 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 6.5 APG, 45.2% FG, 41.2% 3P in the 4th window of #FIBAWC Asian Qualifiers for the Philippines.🇵🇭

🔸 BREAKING: The Cleveland Cavaliers are trading Collin Sexton, Lauri Markkanen, Ochai Agbaji, three first-round picks and two pick swaps to the Utah Jazz for Donovan Mitchell.
Collin Sexton is signing a four-year, $72 million contract via sign-and-trade to the Utah Jazz.

🔸 REPORT: Jayson Tatum [Jordan] and Ja Morant [Nike] are expected to receive their own signature sneaker in 2023, from their respective brands.

304856295_1499483577168533_4622445760803660243_n.jpg


🔸 The Los Angeles Lakers have hesitated to trade their 2027 and 2029 first-round picks in any deal that doesn’t make them serious contenders for the next two seasons.
The Lakers might still prefer a Buddy Hield-Myles Turner trade costing two firsts than any bundle they’re able to cook up with the Utah Jazz.

🔸 Stephen Curry says if he would play for any other NBA team besides the Golden State Warriors, it would be the Charlotte Hornets.
“All I would say is if there was a team that I did want to play for that was not named the Warriors, that would be it [the Hornets].”

🔸 Lonzo Ball is expected to MISS training camp and is doubtful for the start of the regular season with lingering pain and discomfort following knee surgery in January.

🔸 The Phoenix Suns are interested in trading for Bojan Bogdanovic, along with few other teams, including the Lakers, per John Gambadoro.
Phoenix reportedly reached out to the Jazz about the 33-year-old forward following Utah’s trade of Donovan Mitchell to Cleveland. Bogdanovic is entering a contract year after scoring 18.1 PPG in 69 starts last season.

🔸 The Los Angeles Lakers are monitoring the “spare part” veterans left over on the Utah Jazz’s roster such as Mike Conley Jr., Bojan Bogdanovic and Jordan Clarkson for a potential deal before the season begins.

🔸 After receiving further evaluation, Danilo Gallinari has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee.

🔸🔸Players who might still get traded:
Russell Westbrook
Myles Turner
Buddy Hield
Bojan Bogdanovic
Jordan Clarkson
Malik Beasley
Mike Conley
Terrence Ross
Eric Gordon
Gordon Hayward
Cam Reddish
Evan Fournier
Jakob Poeltl

🔸 Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic were DOMINANT in the group phase of FIBA EuroBasket 2022.🔥
Giannis: 29.5 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 3.8 APG, 5-0 record
Doncic: 26.6 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 6.8 APG, 4-1 record
Jokic: 19.6 RPG, 9.4 RPG, 4.4 APG, 5-0 record
Three Best International Players right now.💯

305835613_1503632396753651_8844873511780460533_n.jpg



🔸Gary Payton II recently revealed that he was once criticized by his father for being a ‘sorry-ass’ basketball player.
“And then one summer, my dad told me I wasn’t a good basketball player. Ha, he told me I was a sorry-ass basketball player ... And he told me to get a job or get a scholarship because he wasn’t going to pay for me to get to school.”
Ever since that moment, GP2 never stopped grinding. And now he’s an NBA champion and just recently signed a $28 million contract.❤️🏆
In a recent interview with coach George Karl, Gary Payton II said his decision to leave the Golden State Warriors simply was a financial one.
“For the money. I had to take the money. ... It didn't work out. I would love to go back to Golden State, but it didn't work out. Just the timing and everything. Just a business deal, and I just had to take the money.”

302337078_1503371546779736_2179221131743462215_n.jpg



🔸 Dirk Nowitzki defended Giannis Antetokounmpo over harsh and controversial comments from Gilbert Arenas.
“He is one of the best players in the world and has shown it as a champion and an MVP. He is the first one to tell you you can always improve, but if you look at what he is done already at such a young age, he is one of the best.”


🔸🔸 BREAKING: Maxi Kleber has agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract extension with the Dallas Mavericks.



🔸🔸 REPORT: The Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors are among the teams that have shown interest in Jordan Clarkson.


Luka Doncic admitted that there are better individual defenders in the NBA, but the team defense in Europe is more impressive.
He explained that this is happening because of the international basketall rules that benefit different tactics.
“Because of the smaller court, you don’t have the three-second violation. So I think the team defense is very important,” Doncic explained.

305796735_1502598110190413_4423662886234945019_n.jpg



🔸🔸 REPORT: The NBA is planning to announce expansion to Seattle and Las Vegas during the Clippers’ preseason games in Seattle, and Lakers’ preseason games in Las Vegas.

🔸 Manu Ginobili reflects on his 16-year career with the San Antonio Spurs and he has nothing but love for his teammates and coach.
“I’ve been incredibly lucky to have played for the best coach ever, best power forward, multiple All-Stars. We created something very special. It’s something that doesn't happen. Four guys for the same team playing 15 years together and winning four championships.”
Ginobili will be enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame tomorrow. Congratulations!👏🏽💯

🔸🔸 REPORT: The Boston Celtics appear to have no interest in Carmelo Anthony, per Brian Robb.

According to Robb, apparent rumors of the Boston Celtics’ interest in Carmelo Anthony appear to be inaccurate, with the team seemingly content with what they already have available.

🔸🔸 REPORT: The Utah Jazz are seeking a first-round pick apiece for Bojan Bogdanovic, Jordan Clarkson and Malik Beasley, per Zach Lowe.

“The second package is Clarkson, Bogdanovic, Beasley. From what I’ve been told around the league, the Jazz feel all three of those guys are worth a first-round pick. If that’s the case, then there’s no deal, that’s out,” Lowe said.

🔸 The Indiana Pacers have signed veteran forward James Johnson.
Johnson averaged 5.5 PPG & 3.5 APG in 19.2 MPG in Brooklyn last season.


🔸🔸 REPORT : The Utah Jazz valued deal they gave to Collin Sexton more than what they would’ve had to pay RJ Barrett.

“There are different views about how the league views RJ Barrett,” Stefan Bondy said during a recent episode of HoopsHype’s podcast. “My understanding is the Jazz valued the contract that they got with Collin Sexton more than what they would’ve had to pay Barrett. That was an important part of the trade negotiations.”

🔸 Andre Iguodala has announced that he is returning for his final season, as he signed a one-year veteran minimum deal with the Golden State Warriors.

307698885_1513969745719916_1164277833736017366_n.jpg



🔸 The Golden State Warriors will meet with Jordan Poole’s representation to discuss a massive contract extension in October.

🔸🔸 OFFICIAL : The Boston Celtics have suspended head coach Ime Udoka for the entire 2022-23 season.
The Celtics say they’ll decide on if Ime Udoka’s suspension will be extended beyond this season “at a later date”.
Celtics coach Ime Udoka is expected to be suspended for the entire 2022-23 season for his role in a consensual relationship with a female staff member.
Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka is facing “possible disciplinary action” – including a significant suspension – for an unspecified violation of organizational guidelines.
Discussions are ongoing within the Celtics on a final determination.
Celtics coach Ime Udoka had an improper intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team staff. It’s been deemed a violation of franchise’s code of conduct.

🔸 The San Antonio Spurs could offer a package involving Josh Richardson, Doug McDermott and/or Jakob Poeltl amid interest in a Russell Westbrook trade.
The San Antonio Spurs were recently floated as a team that is still open to trading for Westbrook. McDermott, Richardson and Poeltl are a few interesting names to consider.

307574392_1513271325789758_2089822556372145776_n.jpg



🔸 Khris Middleton is still ‘undecided’ about picking up his $40.4M player option for 2023-24 season.
Middleton: “I think everybody knows deep down that I want to stay. But also, you know it’s a business. Things change, things happen. You just never know. For sure I would love to stay.”


🔸🔸 BREAKING TRADE : The Utah Jazz have traded Bojan Bogdanovic to the Detroit Pistons for Kelly Olynyk & Saben Lee.

307583904_1512918455825045_1157960362300279350_n.jpg



🔸 Indiana Pacers general manager said that Myles Turner will be the team’s starting center on opening night, which officially ending the potential Los Angeles Lakers trade talks.
Lakers did not want to trade two picks to make the Indiana trade happen. This is confirmation that trade talks are pretty dead for the time being.
Lakers best and last offer could be Westbrook and a 1st round pick for Buddy Hield.

🔸 With Robert Williams III undergoing a left knee procedure ahead of training camp, the Boston Celtics could view Dwight Howard and LaMarcus Aldridge as possible replacements.
The Celtics are now left very thin in their frontcourt. Al Horford will likely be the team’s starting center to begin the season.
