First, I gotta say welcome back to our friends coming back from China. Yes, that means you, J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin.
We all know already that K-Mart is already suited in a Clippers jersey, but will J.R. team up once again with Kenyon, Billups, and CP3. J.R. is probably one of the best dunkers and shooters of the last five years. Five teams are reported, by Yahoo.com, to be after Smith, those teams are: Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Indiana Pacers. The only question about this evaluation is if he wants a ring, money, or more playing time. The Pacers would be the team to offer money, they have 14 million laying around waiting to be spent by Larry Bird. The Clippers offer the strong possibility of a championship ring for the veteran. Last, but not least, the T-Wolves offer playing time. Now, if I know J.R. Smith, (and I do pretty well) I would think he would be after the money that Larry Legend is sure to offer. That’s just me though, tell me what you think J.R. will want.
I absolutely dislike Kobe Bryant, but I still admit he is a great player. With five rings and multiple all-star appearances, who wouldn’t say he isn’t great? The answer to that question is, other NBA players. Well that probably isn’t true that they thikn he is horrible, but some absolutely despise Bryant. The NBA players that hate Kobe them most have to be these guys though:
Richard “Rip” Hamilton
Ever since the 2004 NBA Finals Rip and Kobe have been on each other. That year the Los Angles Lakers were playing the Detroit Pistons, two of the best teams, two of the worst cities. The Lakers were set to win after championships in 2000- 02, but were almost sweeped by the Pistons, led by Rip and his buddy, Chauncey Billups, otherwise known as “Mr. Clutch.” Even lately Rick has fouled out in games played against the Lakers.
We never really knew that Brandon disliked Kobe this much until yahoo.com posted this photo.
I am very sorry, that i didn’t have this out earlier I have been working on my new site “The Time Has Come” lately and this site because I don’t get many replies anymore. Thanks for understanding.
5. Josh Smith and Danny Granger
There are many debates that Josh should be considered a SF or a PF. I think he is so neutural though that he can be considered as both. J-Smooth has one of the greatest leaping abilities of any basketaball player ever. He doesn’t usually dunk with strength, but more with style. He is a great defensive presence and a wonderful shot-blocker. This is why Josh is here at number five.
5. Danny Granger
I just like Danny and Josh so much that I put them both here. Danny is much different than Josh though, Danny isn’t a go dunk kind of guy he is a shoot the lights out kind of guy. Granger has a great shot spot on, great base, and great hands. The one thing about the man hardly anyone has ever heard of is that he is not a franchise player. Danny showed this season that he can put up points, but if the Pacers are gonna be competing against the Chicago Bulls again that they need another star. The star that could petentionally play for Pacers would probably be in this year’s or next year’s free agency market.
4. Paul Pierce
Paul is very similar to Danny, except he does wanna really take it to the basket. Paul Pierce is a huge threat because he can take you to the rack or hit you with his off-form jump-shot. Paul Pierce really turned inot the threat though when he was joined by the rest of the “Green Machine” creating one of the best teams to walk the planet, the Boston Celtics. I would highly desire Paul to any team I might create or manage. Paul also is a great leader, has great veteran isntensity, and can win the championship ring. Paul pierce would be an excellent choice for anybody, except if you are Lakers fan, then you may wanna go with Ron Artest.
3. Carmelo Anthony
Carmelo Anthony has always been one of the best small forwards ever since he started his career at Syracuse, but he greatly elevated his status when he and his Denver buddy, Chauncey Billups, got together with Amar’e Stoudamire and the New York Knicks. Ever since that happened Melo has been getting closer and closer to a ring, but fell to the Celtics in the playoffs. Now Carmelo is back again and ready to bring some surious hurt to the now aging Boston Celtics. If Carmelo can handle the Green Foursome than he will be crowned king of Northeastern basketball.
2. Kevin Durant
Oklahoma City small forward, Kevin Durant has been doubted ever since his first high school all-star apperance, but let me tell you this Kevin didn’t listen to it. Kevin knew, even back then, that he would someday be a NBA superstar and that his autograph would be higher-priced every tome he got closer to the NBA Finals. Well now that is true Kevin is one of the best players in the NBA and is great to start a franchise with wether you managing a real team or a fantsay team. Kevin has a great shot, great athletic abilities, and great attitude, but unlike our next option he doesn’t have alot of shiny dunking abilities.
1. LeBron James
When people hear LeBron’s name they thikn that guys is a loser, but LeBron has accomplished almost anything anybody else would want to accomplish. I know that LeBron James will one day have a championship and that, that will not be his only. I know this because He led a team like the Cleveland Cavalaiers, one of the worst teams in the NBA last season to the NBA Finals, that is amazing. The reason he doesn’t have a ring is because of his team not himself. When you are on a team you win and lose as a team. One player is not reason they lost to Dirk, it was the whole team’s fault. Not everyone on the team stood up to their expected position. LeBron is the best player in the NBA rings or no rings. He is athletic, can get on a hot streak, a terrific leader, and is one of the strongest players in the NBA. This is why he would be the key player to my franchise/team and why he would be my top pick at small forward.
Please, don’t cuss me out for liking LeBron.
Make sure to look for my top five picks at shooting guard.
