Something is Fishy about Lebron and the Cavs

Whether it is a passive aggressive subtweet or a team member being accused of faking an injury, something is definitely wrong with the Cavs this year. Whitty shared his theories about the Kevin Love injury last week and it really got me thinking about all the recent Cavs drama, and how it may be all just smoke and mirrors. I pose this question to explain where I am going with this, Why would the most arrogant player of all time want his team off of national television?

I believe Lebron’s master plan is to drive down the appeal of the Cavs for the rest of the season so he can set his price for purchase and completely own Dan Gilbert in his final masterpiece the 30 for 30 special: The Final Decision.

NBA 1/4 Season Awards Presented by Milliron Sports

For many people, the NBA season doesn’t even begin until the Christmas day marathon of games, but not here at Milliron Sports. We’re a quarter of the way through, and it’s time for me to present the highlights from the beginning of the year. Alright, I don’t want to waste anyone’s time here, so lets dive right into it:

Most Graphic Injury : Gordon Hayward

There wasn’t even a ton of competition for this one. It was opening night in Cleveland, and the Celtics were looking to make a statement against the Eastern Conference Champs. Too bad that statement was “HOLY SHIT, HIS LEG’S SHATTERED!”

WARNING: this shit is nasty.

It’s pretty surprising to me that Hayward hasn’t been missed that much, seeing as Boston went on that ridiculous winning streak.

Honorable mention: I know this wasn’t from the NBA, but prayers up to Grayson Allen after this nasty injury.  Shoutout to @millironmac for providing the footage.

Wake Up With Whitty – 7/1/2017

Good Morning and welcome to another edition of “Wake Up With Whitty”.  It’s a holiday weekend (unless you’re one of the unlucky folks like me that has to work on Monday still) so I decided to let everyone sleep in a little!  Hopefully this gives you a nice distraction from those obnoxious Saturday morning cartoons that your kid is watching.  Or that you’re still watching even though your kid lost interest and went off to play 20 minutes ago. It’s okay, I’ve been there.  Once you’re done watching Mickey and friends (and you’ve done the hot dog dance) feel free to come back and tell me what you think!

Crazy NBA Draft Week

Last week, I complained about the dreaded summer sports lull that we were headed into, and BAM!  The NBA came running to save the day with crazy trade rumors all leading up to tonight’s draft.  I think the first couple of picks are locked in, but after that, we could be in for quite an entertaining night of trades.  Let’s take a look back on the week’s rumors and look forward to what’s going to happen tonight:

The big-name rumors surrounded Paul George of the Indiana Pacers saying that he planned on signing with a different team in free agency after his contract was up at the end of next season.  Apparently, he’s said that he wants to play for the Lakers next season, but Indiana is obviously going to try and get the most from a trade from anyone, not just LA.  The pacers were believed to be talking to the Lakers, Clippers and Cavaliers about possible trade options for PG13

Summer Sports Depression

It’s official.  With football still months away, and the NBA/NHL finals in the rear view mirror, we’re left with nothing but Major League Baseball to hold our attention until we get some fake NFL games in August.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved the last two games of the NBA finals, with KD getting his first ring with the Superteam to beat all Superteams.  The chippy nature of the games and the almost-fights were fun to watch.  And Xavier Alum/badass David West got his first ring.  Also, apparently KD doesn’t like the taste of beer… pussy.

Kobe Torches Jalen Again in New Commercial

And With the #2 Pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Lakers Select…

Dear God, please don’t let it be Lonzo Ball.

Last night, from 8-8:30 I was flipping between watching the Reds and Cubs slug it out, and ESPN’s coverage of the NBA Draft Lottery countdown.  At 8:30, they were expected to begin announcing the draft order, so from that point on, I was locked in.

The Lakers had a chance to get any pick from 1-6, and only got to keep their pick if it was top 3.  If they had received picks 4, 5 or 6, the selection would have gone to Philly as part of the Steve Nash trade from what feels like 19 years ago.  Picks 14-7 were announced in reverse order, and when they got to picks 6, 5 and 4, my breath was held.  Alas, I did not hear the Lakers name announced, and knew that we had secured a top 3 pick, and I could finally breathe a sigh of relief.
