Everyone who watched the NBA saw the brawl between Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram. I’m sure all you Laker and LeBron haters totally stood up for CP3 and condoned what Rondo and Ingram did, while all you Bron lovers loved how Ingram and Rondo stood up for their team. Well, as a fan of neither team (I personally don’t like the Rockets nor the Lakers), I want to break down what happened.
This year's draft class has given us some great talent and potential. It'll be hard to match last year's rookie class but we will see some great young stars rising up. I'm gonna rank each player on the team that drafted them and grade them on how their rookie year will be. This DOES NOT mean I am predicting their future career. One of these kids very may well have a terrible rookie year yet rise to be a future star, or vice versa. I am just ranking their ROOKIE years only and how much of an impact they will make on their new team.
There's always a lot of controversy about who should bring home the MVP trophy. Last year for example, James Harden had an exceptionable season and was awarded but people argued that LeBron James had played his best season of his career. Russell Westbrook also had another triple-double averaging season, Anthony Davis was a runner-up along with runner-up for DPOY, and the two Warriors Kevin Durant and Steph Curry played exceptionably well. Question is, who will win it this year? These are the top 5 candidates to win the MVP.
The Northwest was arguably the best division in the NBA last year, with 4 out of 5 teams making the playoffs and the 5th team just barely missing the mark. Each team is impressive, but are they as good as they were last year?
The Southwest Division usually brings us some of the best basketball the past decade, especially from the 3 Texas teams. Will they keep it up this year or are they going to fall?
