Shaquille O'Neal Admits Kevin Durant Is Absolutely Right About Older Players Being Angry About Money Current NBA Players Make: "Do You Think I'm Happy Rudy Gobert Is Making 250?"

The Golden State Warriors winning their 4th championship this season and their 2nd without Kevin Durant has opened up a Pandora's Box in the NBA in some ways. Durant got slandered quite a bit on social media after it happened, something he claimed didn't affect him anymore, but then got into a bit of a beef with Charles Barkley who made some comments about Durant needing to win a championship as the 'bus driver'.

The Nets are trying to copy the Warriors, as a basketball team and a business. Then there’s Kyrie Irving

This month, the sports world has watched Steph Curry lead the Warriors to a fourth NBA title and watched Kyrie Irving lead the Nets into chaos. The NBA has for years increasingly devoted itself toward player empowerment, and the Nets have leaned into that trend as much as any team in the league. But they’re also serving as a cautionary tale of what player(s) to empower. That shift to a culture of player empowerment allowed the Nets to land superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving as a free-agent package deal in June 2019. Since then, Nets owner Joe Tsai has been intent on...

2 unrealistic trades Celtics must try to make in 2022 NBA offseason

The Boston Celtics made the 2022 NBA Finals this season. Despite falling to the Golden State Warriors, they are still a squad that bright hopes for the futur. Both of their franchise players are young, as Jaylen Brown is 25 and Jayson Tatum is 24. The rest of their core is good, if a bit old, with Al Horford being 35 right now. However, the NBA is a league where teams routinely overreact to single-season results, and Boston surely has a foul taste in its mouth after losing the last three games of the Finals. With multiple superstars potentially on the move, could the Celtics look to enter the trade market?

Biggest need Knicks still must address in free agency after 2022 NBA Draft

The New York Knicks owned the trade portion of the 2022 NBA Draft. They made three separate deals, getting themselves out of the first round, then back in, and then back out. At the end of the day, they flipped the 11th pick, Kemba Walker, and some second-round selections into three future first-round picks and a ton of cap space. Given the fact that this team made the playoffs in the 2020-21 season and then fell out again, the Knicks clearly feel like they are close to being a playoff team on a consistent basis. To get there, they need to address some needs. All of them are very important, but there is one that is very obvious. Here are the biggest needs Knicks still must address in free agency after the 2022 NBA Draft.
