The LA Lakers ranked first in Western region for the first time after 10 years

The Los Angeles Lakers are undoubtedly the number one western seed at NBA Play-off 2019-2020, taking down Utah Jazz 116-108 on August 4.

For the first time since the 2009-2010 season, the LA Lakers finish the main season at the top of the Western table. The 116-108 victory over Utah Jazz helped LeBron James and his teammates secure the number one position before five matches. The second-highest NBA-winning team won 51 in 66 matches from the start of the season.

Anthony Davis dumped Kobe Bryant’s 7-year existence record

Anthony Davis shone in the Lakers’ latest victory, scoring 42 points and 12 rebounds, including 24 points in the first two halves. This is the 20th time the striker has scored at least 20 points after half a match this season. The closest Lakers player to do this was Kobe Bryant, a legend who died earlier this year in a helicopter accident.

Main events of the Lakers – Jazz match

The match took place in the first two rounds and the Lakers only created a two-point gap. Donovan Mitchell scored 21 points in the first half to help Utah Jazz chase the opponent. Mitchell’s long-shot helped Jazz start the exciting third with a series of 8-0 points.

However, Jazz constantly loosened the ball, leaving the opponent a chance to master the match. The Lakers took advantage of the opponent’s sagging with 14 consecutive points and closed the third half with a 19-2 point sequence. LeBron James and his teammates maintained the lead to the end of the match and secured the victory with a long throw situation of Anthony Davis.

This is the first time the Lakers have achieved a throw efficiency of over 50% since the Covid-19 pandemic. Two matches ago, teachers and students Frank Vogel only succeeded less than 40% in the final stage.

On the side of Utah Jazz, the students of coach Quin Snyder only achieved an efficiency of 27.9% from the three-point line. Failure did not affect their playoff tickets but made Jazz lose the race to the higher position. They are currently ranked fifth in the West with 42 wins – 25 losses.

Some typical NBA players with great height and scoring ability (Part 3)

Yao Ming

Yao Ming, despite owning a height of 2m29, is still not the tallest NBA player in history.

Basketball has long been known as a sport for giants. According to statistics, the average height of NBA players is 2m, but do you know who is the tallest player ever to play in the NBA?

Shawn Bradley

Shawn Bradley is the player with the longest playing career on this list. In the 14 NBA seasons, Shawn Bradley averaged 9.8 points and 6.4 rebounds. The impression of the German player is probably that he was selected in 2nd place in the 1993 NBA Draft.

Manute Bol

Manute Bol is the 2nd highest player in NBA history. The interesting fact is that he has played against the lowest player in history, the Muggsy Bogues (1m60).

Manute Bol stands out with his excellent ability to throw the ball, but the remaining skills are quite weak. According to statistics, Manute Bol averages 5.0 blocks per game in the first season in the NBA. He is also the only player in NBA history to end his career with more blocks statistics than scoring.

Gheorghe Muresan

Gheorghe Muresan has a listed height as Manute Bol, but in fact, he is 231.06 cm tall, or 2m31.06. The greatest achievement in Gheorghe Muresan’s NBA career is the title of The most progressive player of the 1996 season.

However, the relationship between Kevin Garnett and owner Glen Taylor is not very good. Both have not looked at each other since 2015, when legendary coach Flip Saunders (passed away in October 2015) is no longer there to mediate between the two. KG refused to be hung in the Timberwolves if Glen Taylor was in office.

The NBA 2019/2020 season will end no later than October 12

According to famous journalist Adrian Wojnarowski, the NBA management board has set the latest timeline for the 2019-2020 NBA season to close on October 12.

According to the journalist, the NBA management is aiming to continue the 2019/2020 season from July 31 with the participation of 22 teams at the Disney Wolrd Resort in Orlando. On Thursday this week, the NBA board will hold a vote with the team leaders.

If at least two thirds of the tournament’s teams agree with this plan, it will be officially approved. According to journalist Wojnarowski, the tournament management team and the NBA Players Association are actively working to finalize the aforementioned plan before launching it at a meeting next Thursday.

The format for the rest of the 2019/2020 season has not yet been revealed. The options that are being mentioned now are that the teams will only play a few more Regular Season matches then there will be a small tournament to determine the final Playoffs and then enter the Playoffs. It is also not excluded that the teams will immediately enter the Playoffs round when this season comes back.

The management team is also considering a plan to not split the paired confrontation according to the domain in the Playoffs this season. This will help ensure more fairness for the teams in the West. On the current standings, the 13th place Western Phoenix Suns are even better than the East 9th place Washington Wizards.

It is likely that only the teams that still have many chances to compete for the Playoffs this season will be able to play in this season. In addition to the 16 teams with the best results in the rankings, the remaining names that still have the opportunity to play may be Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Suns and Wizards.

In the past, the NBA management had not supported the option to split the regional match in the Playoffs. They said that if an Eastern team met a Western team in a 7-game series of Round 7 Playoffs, the teams would be too hard to move. With the Playoffs this season only taking place in one location, the above plan suddenly became very feasible.

All will have to wait until the meeting of the NBA leaders on Thursday this week to know more about the fate of this season. It is expected that after the aforementioned meeting, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will also make an official decision for the rest of this season.

The reason why more than half of NBA players went bankrupt (Part 2)

Allen Iverson is considered the most depraved basketball player in history when spending more than $ 150 million before bankruptcy.

Some players “grill” millions of dollars just for gambling. Former Dwyane Wade star is the latest case when he admitted to being at risk of bankruptcy because of playing poker in March 2020. This information surprised fans when they learned that Wade earned nearly $ 200 million in career salary.

Already familiar with the huge income of the competition, most players still maintain the profligate spending habits after retirement. This is a factor that makes many players financially quickly exhausted when spending more money than the income earned after retirement.

Basketball players who possess enormous wealth are considered a lucrative prey with many rogue parts in society. Allen Iverson has a team of about 50 friends when he still owns hundreds of millions of dollars. Iverson is ready to take care of all the expenses in the fun for his friends.

The 44-year-old former player is generous when giving homes and expensive items to friends when they need them. However, all the key friends left when Iverson declared bankruptcy in 2012. Not only Iverson, many players also fell into the same situation and quickly went bankrupt after a short time.

Wrong investment

Another factor contributing to many NBA players who do not play badly but still go bankrupt is the ability to make a bad investment. Most of the players later become more or less aware of the investment to maintain a rich life after retirement.

However, the lack of professional knowledge makes them easy to make losses and run out of money quickly. Most players don’t have a college degree because they started a basketball career at the age of under 21.

That’s why a financial advisor is what players need to help with their investment or simply to spend. However, the players are not keen on hiring a financial advisor for themselves.

Golden State Warriors and teams stand outside the NBA 2019/20 season

After the NBA has announced plans to restart with 22 teams, playing from July 31, 8 teams will be pushed out of the 2019-20 season.

Eight regular Season matches, a Playoffs round with 7 series matches like the previous seasons and 22 participating teams will be what appear in the NBA after the restart of the season on July 31.

In the presence of all 30 teams, the NBA faces a higher risk of infection. So not everyone is chosen. But if there are only 16 teams, the number of matches for the entire NBA 2019-20 season will not be enough and this is a violation of the tournament’s contract with the broadcasters as well as sponsors.

Trae Young and Stephen Curry are part of the team that has to say goodbye to NBA 2019-20

Finally, 22 teams with enough achievements including 16 teams in the Playoffs group and 5 Western teams and 1 Eastern team will come to Orlando, competing together at Walt Disney World Resort. This will leave 8 teams outside the game including as follows.

Golden State Warriors – Achievements 15-50

Cleveland Cavaliers – Achievements 19-46

Minnesota Timberwolves – Achievements 19-45

Atlanta Hawks – Achievement 20-47

Detroit Pistons – Achievement 20-46

New York Knicks – Achievements 21-45

Chicago Bulls – Achievements 22-43

Charlotte Hornets – Achievements 23-42

Prominent among the 8 teams to sit at home is probably Golden State Warriors, the collective has had 5 consecutive seasons in the NBA Finals. Unfortunately for the 2018 champion, injuries to pillars like Klay Thompson or Stephen Curry forced “Dub Nation” into the road to rebuilding the squad.

The Atlanta Hawks and Minnesota Timberwolves are also notable names with two stars, Trae Young and D’Angelo Russell. Unfortunately for the duo, they will have to try next season. Sharing from journalist Shams Charania, although the NBA allows 30 teams to come to Orlando to play, many will refuse to attend.

D’Angelo Russell will say goodbye to the season soon

The intensive competition will require a lot of preparation, especially among these is physical training about 3 weeks before the competition. After that, teams will have to isolate 14 days in Orlando before entering the training camp.

For teams that cannot compete in the Playoffs, it is unreasonable for them to prepare within 2 months and only play 6-8 regular Season matches. It is unclear what the plans for these 8 teams will be, but their offseason has officially started today.
