Kevin Durant...

Kevin Durant Declined The $31.5 Million Player Option From The Golden State Warriors. Instead Durant Has Decided to Sign a Four Year, $164 Million Deal To Play For The Brooklyn Nets, I Know This Might Not Be a Surprise, However A lot Of People Predicted That KD Would Go Play For The New York Knicks. I Was Not One Of Those People. I Said That New York Knicks Could Not Afford Kevin Durant And He Was to Play With Some Players. I Know That KD Is Out For The Entire 2019-20 Season With a Ruptured Achilles Tendon. So We Will Not Be Seeing Kevin Durant Until The 2020-21 Season. But When He Takes The Court The Brooklyn Nets Will Be Tough To Beat. And As Far As The Golden State Warriors Go, The Dynasty Ended In Game Six When They Got Beat, And Kevin Durant Was In The Hospital And I Blame The Medical Staff And Warriors General Manager Bob Myers For That All The Way To The End.

Kyrie Irving...

Everybody Knew That Irving Wanted Out Of Boston Earlier In The Season, But He Decided to Stay. Irving Called a Special Meeting Of The Season Ticket Holders And Said, " I Will Give It My All And I Will Be a Great Player." Well Irving Was a Great Player, However We Have Some Celtic Players That Were Not Playing Up To Their Potential. The Celtics Had a 2nd Round Exit After Losing In Five Games To The Milwaukee Bucks. Then The Shocking News That Kyrie Comes In And That's When The Nets Got Smart. They Got Irving to Accept a Four Year $141 Million Deal. Who Gets The Blame For Kyrie's Departure From The Boston Celtics, Well There's Plenty Of Blame To Go Around From The Team To The Front Office. Irving Was Not Happy With The Celtics And It Showed in the Last Three Games Of Boston's Season. Irving Went 21-for-65 In The Last Three Games And Everybody Knew Then That Kyrie Was Not Happy In Boston, Now The Nets Have Him And They Will Not Boston Have Him Back.

DeAndre Jordan...

The Longtime Los Angeles Clippers Star Who Spent 10 Years In Los Angeles Signed a One Year $22.9 Million Deal With The Dallas Mavericks During The Offseason a Couple Years Back. Hunter Is One Of The Best Players Next To Durant And Irving. DeAndre Jordan Is Overlooked For His Shooting Capability And He Was With Knicks For One Year. The Knicks Went 17-65, The Worst In The League And The Knicks Organization Said Go Play Somewhere Else Because You Are Better Than That. Could It Be The Knicks Just Getting RJ Barrett In The NBA Draft Has Something To Do With It, I Can't Answer That Question. But I Can Tell You That Jordan Is Going to Sign a Four Year $40 Million Deal, And That My Friends Is All I Can Say. And Yes The Brooklyn Nets Are Going to Be The Team To Beat In The Next Couple Of Years.

Now Here's My Take...

Now That The Brooklyn Nets Are Now Loaded And Ready To Contend For The NBA World Championship What Can We Expect. This Coming NBA Season Is Going To Be Very Interesting Because We Will Have The Brooklyn Nets In The Discussion As a Favorite To Win The NBA Eastern Conference. According To The Las Vegas Sports Super Book The Brooklyn Nets Are Odds Of Being NBA World Champions Is Now 18-1 Which Is An Improvement Form The 25-1 Before The Nets Stacked The Deck In The Favor.

So What Next For Everybody Else, And I Am Talking About the Warriors, Celtics And Knicks. The Golden State Warriors Need to Keep Klay Thompson And Offer Him a Supermax Deal. I Know He's Because of An ACL Injury, But The Warriors Need To Keep Thompson Or It's Going to a Long Season For The Golden State Warriors. The Boston Celtics, They're Screwed. They Lost Their Best Player And The Only Hope For The Boston Celtics Now Is To Win The Kawhi Leonard Sweepstakes, Leonard Is Coming Off Of a Banner Year, Winning Finals MVP And Bringing The Toronto Raptors Their First NBA Title. Leonard Has Already Said He's Considering Other Options So The Celtics Are In Huge Trouble. As Far As The New York Knicks Go, They Got RJ Barrett In The NBA Draft So I Don't Look For The Knicks To Go Anywhere Fast, If They Can Finish At .500 That's a Winning Season. But If The Knicks Get Leonard It's a Whole New Ballgame In NBA Free Agency, So Stay Tuned Everybody We're Just Warming Up.
