From Distance: Dallas Joins the EU

2019-02-01

four point play…. 1. The NBA has given me much to be happy about over the last week. The Cavs have played passable ball on both ends of the floor winning the last two, Cedi Osman has finally connected his brain to his skill-set for an extended period of time, Matthew Dellavedova was mic’ed up (that’s all I have on that, that’s just fun), and the New York Knicks traded…

Almost Near the Top

During the past three seasons, Austin Carr has often said, “Kyrie has got to pass the ball. He can’t just dribble it.” That’s been said with lots of enthusiasm when the Cavs have been down during a fourth quarter, and Kyrie Irving’s hero ball was being thwarted by double teams. LeBron James even said Kyrie needs to be a point guard first and a scorer second last week. While it is definitely true that assists result…
