    According to Adam Zagoria, online betting likes Tyronn Lue as next Nets head coach and Kenny Atkinson as next Knicks head coach.

    To be fair, these sites have no inside knowledge and are just playing off media buzz.

    Nets beat the Lakers who are coming off two big wins against a Bucks team w/ Giannis and a healthy Clippers team trying to set the tone for the playoffs as the team to beat. Unbelievable W for their new coach and a 2 game win streak for him, that Jordan promotion and starting Chandler instead of Prince along with playing guys Kenny never played Caberrot and a guy the Wiz waived Ciozza is working so far. Caberrot was only 5-13 but 13 pts with a couple of big 3s. Ciozza was attacking and dishing with 11 pts and looks to be a decent pickup but he's 5'11", only guy that's 5'11" I want playing for me is Jordan McGlaughlin of the Wolves after seeing him throw down a tomahawk dunk.

    Little bit of luck involved when a team like the Nets beat the Lakers with Lebron missing a layup with seconds left and the Nets leaving AD wide open on the left wing for a game winning 3 after he hit a game tying 3 a minute earlier.

    You have to imagine his agent is going to work quickly to pursue any possible options to get him out of Brooklyn. As a starter, Allen is going to be a top double double big man in the league in line for a big contract. As a backup, his future is much more uncertain.

    Just funny how the media perception was that KD and Kyrie loves the culture and everything.... They touted the bright you g HC as another reason free agents attracted to BKLayN.

    Itís all crap.

    KD loves culture so much he got HC fired. DJ another tool.

    Zion reportedly to cover all Smoothie King Center workers pay for the next 30 days.

    He may have set the example, several others along with the teams themselves said they would take care of the arena workers.

    TRAE YOUNG
    PG, ATLANTA HAWKS

    Trae Young gave out his phone number to fans during his HORSE loss to Chauncey Billups on Sunday.
    ESPN showed the phone number (404/737-4344) in a graphic during the contest and Young said he's trying to stay connected to his fans during the quarantine. "I'm excited about it, being able to stay in contact with everybody through this way. I'm gonna post my number and you all text me and we'll be able to stay in contact." Pretty cool move by Young and it will be interesting to see how many of his fans actually get texts back from Young over the next few weeks. He lost his HORSE matchup with Chauncey Billups, who will be joined by Mike Conley, Zach LaVine and Allie Quigley, who defeated Chris Paul, in the Final Four, to be televised on April 16 at 9 p.m.

    A game of HORSE as a replacement for an NBA season, SMH. I guess ESPN had to do something but I for one won’t be watching.

    https://www.espn.com/espn/story/_/id...yer-year-award

    Emoni Bates, considered one of the best high school prospects since LeBron James, won the Gatorade National Boys Basketball Player of the Year Award on Tuesday, becoming the first sophomore to ever win the award.

    Bates, a 6-foot-9 wing with a smooth offensive game and elite shooting ability, is ranked No. 1 in the ESPN 25 for the 2022 class. The Lincoln High (Ypsilanti, Michigan) sophomore is considered the best high school prospect in the country regardless of class.

    Bates won Michigan's Gatorade Player of the Year award as a freshman after leading Lincoln to its first state championship. He averaged 32.4 points, 9.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.2 steals in 2018-19.

    As a sophomore, Bates led Lincoln to a 19-3 record and a spot in the District 18 state tournament final against Ann Arbor Huron, which was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Bates, who turned 16 in late January, had arguably the best game of his career on Feb. 18, when he finished with 63 points and 21 rebounds in a double-overtime win over Chelsea.

    This is the 35th year Gatorade has given out the award, and Bates is the first player who will have the opportunity to win it three times. James, Greg Oden and Brandon Knight won it two times apiece, while other past winners include Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Alonzo Mourning and Ben Simmons.

    James Wiseman won the award in 2018-19.

    California high school star Jalen Green, the No. 1 prospect in the 2020 ESPN 100, is making the leap to a reshaped NBA professional pathway program -- a G League initiative that sources say will pay elite prospects $500,000-plus and provide a one-year development program outside of the minor league's traditional team structure.

    Green -- a potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NBA draft -- announced Thursday that he is bypassing college to become the professional pathway's first participant, a decision that likely clears the way for more commitments from elite prospects.

    I’m hoping the NCAA will start doing the same, to me it’s an issue of being competitive with compensation and fairness when you have college coaches making millions.

    NBA should encourage this, to draw up interest in the G League. Like MLB, where HS kids can enter draft then get assigned to minors OR they can go to college... but, if you go to college... you have to stay there 3 years.

    This would make both the collegiate and G League products more interesting, no?

    NCAA feeling the pressure revised their rules re: player's ability to get endorsement deals beginning next season. This would allow guys like Joe Burrows to capitalize on their fame and influence to make money endorsing companies and products. Like the GLeague deal, it should have limited impact granting the best players the avenue to make significant income that they didn't have the opportunity to make before.
