Cheap James Harden NBA Jersey Authentic Online

by admin .

LOS ANGELES — Chris Paul and James Harden have been training together since the Houston Rockets acquired Paul from the LA Clippers in a trade last month. They made their public debut as teammates Sunday in front of a standing-room-only crowd at Los Angeles’ famed Drew League.

Harden finished with game highs of 27 points and 12 rebounds, while adding six assists and two steals for his LAUNFD (pronounced “L.A. Unified”) team, which pulled out an 83-81 win over a Home Town Favorites team that featured current NBA players Jordan cheap authentic jerseys Bell, Delon Wright and Tim Hardaway Jr.

In the first half, the two point guards, who now must learn to share a backcourt, seemed to trade off ballhandling and playmaking duties with one player firmly in control of the possession and the other spotting up to shoot. But as the game went on, there was more synergy to their games.

It’s a harmonizing process they’ve worked on all summer, in open-court runs in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. It’ll continue in the fall as well, as Rockets teammate Bobby Brown said the team is planning to continue to train together in L.A., then again in the Bahamas in late August.

It was something the Rockets did last summer as well, as they began learning coach Mike D’Antoni’s offense and facilitating Harden’s change to a lead guard position.

“That really helped us jell last year,” Brown said.

Despite playing for the Clippers for the previous six seasons, Paul had never played in the Drew League before Sunday’s game.

Paul watched Harden the week before, though, and he shook off a slow start to finish with 13 points and 10-assists. Before the prior week’s game, Brown informed Paul that he would need to play in order to be eligible for the Drew League playoffs that will start Friday.

“CP came to the game last week and he was itching to play,” Brown said. “After that, he texted me saying, ‘Yo, I want to play. Think it would be cool if I could play with y’all?’ I said, ‘No problem. It’s the Drew League, you haven’t played yet. You get your shine, you get your welcoming to the Drew on a good team, with your brother.’

“That was an easy call. He had fun,” added Brown, a four-time Drew League champion. “JH always has fun. Me and James have been playing together for the third year in a row.”

It was a star-studded event for the Drew League. Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade made it to the game to watch courtside, along with Toronto Raptors All-Star DeMar DeRozan, who played earlier in the day with Nick Young of the Golden State Warriors and Julius Randle of the Los Angeles Lakers.

“There were hundreds of people outside waiting, coming and going because they couldn’t get in,” Drew League commissioner Chaniel Smiley said of the packed crowd Sunday. “Today’s crowd had to be on my top-two list.”

LAUNFD started the game with Harden, Paul, Bobby Brown, former NBA player Pooh Jeter, and 2018 ESPN 100 top high school player Marvin Bagley III. Home Town Favorites started Delon Wright, 12-year NBA veteran Dorell Wright, Hardaway, Golden State Warriors rookie Jordan Bell and USC sophomore DeAnthony Melton.

The stakes were actually high for Harden and Paul’s LAUNFD team, as they had to win to make the league’s postseason. Home Town Favorites got off to the fast start, getting 11 first quarter points from Hardaway to lead 29-22. Home Town Favorites led at halftime 44-40, with Paul making only one-of-eight from the field.

But Paul turned it on in the third quarter, making three 3-pointers and showing off his handle along the baseline at one point before making a step-back to force a Home Town Favorites timeout. LAUNFD outscored Home Town Favorites 26-9 in the third quarter before holding on to win.

LAUNFD played a lot like the Houston Rockets that GM Daryl Morey has fostered this decade, making and attempting more 3-pointers (16-of-44) than 2-pointers (15-of-35). Harden (6-of-15 on 3s) and Paul (3-of-11 on 3s) were a big part of that offensive mix, something that Brown noted was intentional.

“At the end of the day, our strong suit is shooting 3s,” Brown said. “We knew what type of game it was going to be. We knew the type of players we had. We just stuck through to the end and we came out with the win.”

At one point late in the game, Harden was stripped of the ball by Dorell Wright, leaving Harden shaken up and holding his left thumb. Harden would finish the game, but it was an uncomfortable moment for Houston Rockets CEO Tad Brown, who was sitting courtside.

“It was fun,” Brown said about the game. “It got a little suspect there when James wrecked his thumb. But overall, it was fun.”

It was reported that Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook would suit up for Home Town Favorites, and while Wright explained that there were conversations about Westbrook playing, he said that Westbrook is “in a different situation than a lot of us.”

“We talk about it often, you know, for the past few years. He wants to get out here,” said Wright, who, like Westbrook, went to Leuzinger High School in Lawndale, California. “[Westbrook] has a lot on the table right now. I’m pretty sure that whatever he had going on today, he had to handle that.

“He’ll get out here one of these days, and everybody will be pretty happy,” Wright added.

If Westbrook would have played, he would have had to negotiate with Melton to wear his signature No. 0.

“No, no, no, no,” Melton said when asked if he would have given up the number to Westbrook. “OK, maybe, we’ll see, I don’t know. He didn’t come, so that’s all we know,” Melton added with a smile on his face.

The Drew League will continue into August as they prepare to host Jamal Crawford and the Seattle Pro-Am “The Crawsover” in Los Angeles on Wednesday for an invitational. The next two weekends will be Drew League playoffs, which Harden and Paul will now be eligible to play in.

Authentic DeMar DeRozan Stitched NBA Jersey

by admin .

DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors recently learned his NBA 2K18 rating. Is it too low, too high, or just right? Here are three completely unscientific ways to tell.

Forget All-Star appearances, stats, even rings. What NBA stars care about most – and who could blame them? – is their NBA cheap jerseys nba 2K rating. The difference between a losing in the first round of the playoffs and losing in the NBA Finals is negligible really; the difference between a 90 and an 89 in 2K is life or death.

Recently, a handful of players were (un)lucky enough to learn their ratings for the newest iteration of the game, NBA 2K18. The whole guess-and-find-out exercise was reasonably entertaining, but next time, 2K developers should probably avoid dropping these videos just before Kyrie Irving shatters the NBA universe.

Speaking of Irving, remember how he similarly shattered the Toronto Raptors‘ dreams last playoffs? Well, he beat Toronto again, receiving a 90 rating compared to DeMar DeRozan’s 89.

Right now, the most pressing question for Raptors fans is whether DeRozan’s rating is fair compared to those of his peers. If not, fans will riot.

It’s difficult to compare big men and perimeter players so we’ll ignore the two centers for now. Let’s look at Devin Booker first. DeRozan is effectively a non-shooter from three, and he compromises a team’s spacing, whereas Booker is known as a deadeye who can play on or off-ball.

But even accounting for shooting – and Booker’s shot is still largely theoretical (career 35.4 percent from three) – DeRozan is a more proven offensive player. And defensively, Booker and his short arms reach a level of ineptitude DeRozan, although a negative, does not. At this point in their respective careers, DeRozan is three or four points better. Fair.

Irving is also inferior to DeRozan defensively, but there’s no competition on offense. The two play a similar iso-heavy brand of basketball, except Irving adds far more value away from the ball. Come the playoffs, we’ve seen teams successfully gameplan against DeRozan, whereas Irving is almost unguardable. But if we’re counting the regular season, when Irving can be inconsistent, one point seems okay enough. Fair.

And then there’s Paul George, who is more versatile offensively, shoots at an extremely high level, and is one of the best defenders in the league. George isn’t dominant – he doesn’t get to the line often enough and shoots a few too many midrange jumpers – but he definitely earns those two points. Fair.

Former NBA all-star and Miami Heat power forward, Chris Bosh has spoken up about the feud between the two NBA superstars in Cleveland, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. This feud between two of the biggest names in professional basketball has been the main headline in the basketball universe this week. Many professional athletes, NBA superstars and basketball legends have shared their opinions about the “beef” that has been going on. Many have shared insight into what the Cavaliers or LeBron and Kyrie should to squash their differences and get along together, and one of those who has spoken up, is 11-time all-star, Chris Bosh.

In a recent interview with TMZ sports, Chris Bosh was asked about the feud between the two superstars, and what his thoughts are on the situation.

Chris said that they should ‘work it out’ and proceeded to explain that hashing things out is “always” the best idea. Bosh obviously knows how well these two have been playing together over the past three years and is very close with King James personally, so he would love to see them playing with each other once again this upcoming season.

Chris Bosh recently hinted that he would love to come back to play professional basketball again, stating that playing alongside LeBron James again would be something he would love to do. And from his standpoint, he would probably love to play with Kyrie Irving also if he got the chance to play on the Cleveland Cavaliers team in the near future.

Kyrie Irving obviously at this point is seeking a trade so he can be the face of a team and write his own path, and this is something that Chris Bosh holds respect for.

Bosh when asked about Irving’s desire to write his own legacy instead of being looked at as the King’s sidekick said, “Absolutely, that’s what we all want right?” Bosh experienced this during his first seven years cheap jerseys authentic in the league as a member of the Toronto Raptors. He did play with some star talent including Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter and a young DeMar DeRozan, but for the most part, it was his team and he orchestrated the show. He then decided to take the opportunity at playing with Dwyane Wade to compete for a championship, as LeBron also joined up. It paid off for CB as he won a championship title in 2012 and 2013.

Now, after suffering from many health related issues over the past few years, Bosh is looking to make a return to the NBA.
