NBA Quick Takes 2

Welcome to Baller Central!!!! Basketball and Football articles created by Phil and Akeem

We have even more news in the NBA!!!! Some will change the playoffs while others may not be as important. We are in the home stretch before the playoffs and we are excited to see how the season finishes.

Play in tournament a good idea?

Luka Doncic and Mavs owner Mark Cuban voiced their concerns that the play in tournament is a bad idea.

Luka Doncic and Mavs owner Mark Cuban voiced their concerns that the play in tournament is a bad idea.

Our Take

We absolutely agree with them. It’s a waste of time for the play in tournament to exist. If teams wanted to make the playoffs they should have won more games in the season. That is completely unfair to the teams that earn the 7th and 8th seed.

LA12 Retires due to health concerns

LaMarcus Aldridge retires due to health concerns involving an irregular heartbeat.

LaMarcus Aldridge retires due to health concerns involving an irregular heartbeat.

Our Take

Tough to see LA12 to go out like this but glad he put his health first. Loved his career in Portland and San Antonio and hope that his retirement is fun and he spends a lot of time with family. As for the Nets it just continues to show their glaring problem with the big man position with LA gone.

Jamal Murray Tears ACL

Nuggets Star PG Jamal Murray tears his ACL late game against the Warriors.

Nuggets Star PG Jamal Murray tears his ACL late game against the Warriors.

Our Take

He shouldn’t have been in the game that late in my opinion he should have been subbed out. It sucks to see Murray get hurt because the Nuggets were preparing to make some noise in the playoffs. Now it’s the next man up mentality for the Nuggets and they are planning to sigh Austin Rivers to help. This only strengthens Jokic’s case for MVP as he will have to do even more now.

Curry Makes History

Warriors PG Steph Curry becomes the leading scorer in Warriors franchise history.

Warriors PG Steph Curry becomes the leading scorer in Warriors franchise history.

Our Take

With the way Curry has been playing the last couple of years it was only a matter of time. Very well deserved as Curry can potentially be one of the greats when his career is done. He will in due time break the all time three point record as well. He is having a MVP type year even though a lot of people doubted him. He will need to keep this play up if he wants his Warriors to contend for a championship.

Space Jam 2 Trailer Reaction

Space Jam 2 has released a trailer involving many cartoons, Lebron James, and Don Cheadle.

Space Jam 2 has released a trailer involving many cartoons, Lebron James, and Don Cheadle.

Our Take

LONG AWAITED!!!!!!!!! We love all the cameos in the trailer from a lot of old school cartoons, movies, and shows. Plus Don Cheadle is a phenomenal actor so he is a great addition to the movie. This will obviously be compared to Jordan just like everything Lebron does but hopefully this is a more civil debate than the sports ones fans have. We am highly looking forward to it!!!

Those are our takes for the latest NBA news. We here at Baller Central have some things cooking up so please stay tuned!!!!!!!!! Thanks for rocking with us and reading this article!!!!
