NBA 3-Team Trades

The NBA trades players a lot. Most of the time they are good trades, not stupid trades that would get a team more losses. But the New York Knicks just recently made a stupid trade in my opinion. They are currently 5-32 as of 1-6-15. But now their record is going to worse.

They traded 2-3 of their best star players. They got 2 players who might be able to make their starting line-up.

They’re just having a terrible season. Here’s what happened on the Knicks part of the trade;

Now, I’m going to tell you What Team Traded what player!

New York traded- Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith.

New York Got- Lou Amundson and Alex Kirk,

Now to me, that’s a terrible trade. This is almost as bad as the Boston Celtics trading Rondo. Besides Carmello Anthony, Smith and Shumpert were the Knicks other two best players.

The Knicks defiantly need them now than ever!

The Knicks record is 5-32. They are currently the last place team in all of the NBA! The Knicks Star player “Carmello Anthony” told the media;

“I’m all right, I’m not shutting it down for the season yet — just trying to take some time to get it right.”

Cleveland Traded- Lou Amundson and Alex Kirk.

Cleveland received- Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith.

With Smith and Shumpert, the Cavs could turn out better than they thought. This trade makes their offense way better than they probably thought it would be.

They now have Lebron James, Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, J.R.Smith and Kevin Love. They are officially a team to look out for on the Court.

OKC Trades – Lance Thomas and 2015 First round pick

OKC Receives – Dion Waiters

Oklahoma City now has Russel Westbrook, Kevin Durant, and the newest member of Oklahoma, Dion Waiters. Dion is not the best player ever, but his offensive skills are not bad.

I really think the Thunder could use Waiters. Especially with Durant and Westbrook. This team might also be a team to watch out for.

Basically this 3-man trade was a success for OKC and Cleveland. For the Knicks they lost 2 of 3 of their best players. They need Smith and Shumpert to get better, and right now they’re just getting worse.

They are one team that doesn’t have to try to tank. They’re doing it anyways on their own.

IPL: Mumbai Indians Lose Season Opener

Mumbai Indians lost an Indian Premier League (IPL) opener for the 8th successive year following a 5-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings.

However, ex Mumbai Indians player Ambati Rayudu and South African superstars Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi ensured that it didn’t...

When Did Formula One Begin?

If you ask virtually anyone the world over a simple question – “What is Formula One” they will probably get the answer correct.  It’s a car race!  Even though that might be a very simple reply (a better answer would be it’s the highest class of international single-seater auto-racing!) there is another question that will probably stump them.  That question is “When did Formula One begin?”. In order to answer the question properly we need...

Stanley Cup Finals: Tampa Bay Lightning vs Dallas Stars

The Cleveland Browns Are Looking Up

The Cleveland Browns have a team that had a ton of questions this year. They came into the game against the Bengals unsure of how they were going to get their offense going. While the Bengals aren't at all a good defense, it's still hard to play those divisional games and win. The AFC North is known for brutally cold weather that makes it nearly impossible to stay sharp, yet they were sharp offensively....

The Case For Rocky Marciano

You wouldn't think, not even for a second, that you would have to defend a world champion boxer who retired with an unblemished record of 49-0 (43 KO's), but if it's Rocky Marciano we're talking about then yep, he needs to be defended. It's ridiculous, but true. Marciano seems to have as many naysayers as he does fans. "He was too small", "He never fought anybody in their prime", "He'd get killed today"; etc....
