Who wouldn’t be after the Summer League he had?  If it takes Tatum to get Kyrie, then what the hell is Danny waiting for? Pull the trigger. Please don’t give me the youth argument, because I’ll throw it back in your face. Irving is only 25 years old.  Irving is the second-best player in the Eastern Conference, with his short-term teammate, LBJ, being the first. This guy averaged 25.2 ppg and 5.8 assists for the season and 29.4 ppg in the finals against the Warriors, and I thought he played harder than LeBron James in the Cavs’

What team travels the most miles in new NBA schedule? Sorry Jimmy Butler but…

Usually, it is the teams from the West Coast that end up with the heaviest travel schedules in the NBA — it’s just the nature of geography. There are a lot of teams clustered along the Eastern seaboard that are not far from each other, where in the West it was common to have a Los Angeles then Denver back-to-back and that flight is close to two-and-a-half hours. This year, however, the travel honor goes to a midwestern squad — the Minnesota Timberwolves.
