Open Season

With All-Star Weekend behind us, the NBA has resumed back to their normal schedule as they approach the championships. With this upcoming time, players are being watched to see what will happen during the upcoming free agency and open contracts. Players like Kevin Durant, Lebron James, Pau Gasol, Dwayne Wade, and others. Among those, Anderson Varejao (Cleveland Cavaliers) already confirmed a team he will be moving to. The team he is leaving Cleveland for is former champions, Golden State Warriors. Golden State picked up this big man due to the lack of size they have on their roster this season due to injuries. Although people are focused mainly on the upcoming free agency, the games are still going on.

On Sunday, Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans) dropped 59 points and 20 rebounds in his game against the Detroit Pistons. Anthony Davis was projected to be this years MVP, but now isn’t even in the talks for it. Davis coming from an excellent season last year, has slowly declined in performance this season. Some say it’s due to the lack of depth on the team and some say it is due to the lack of leadership Davis has with the team. On Saturday, the Warriors and the Clippers went head to head after the Warriors lost their 5th game of the season the night before. Nearing the end of the 4th quarter the Warriors took their starters out after having a double digit lead. The Clippers automatically seized their opportunity and brought the game down to 3 points. This prompted the Warriors coach, Steve Kerr, to bring back in the starters to avoid losing their first consecutive losses of the season. The Warriors won the game in the 4th quarter by 3 after the Clippers player, C.J. Wilcox missed the game tying 3 point shot.
