Boeheim Keeps Finding Ways to Drag Melo into the News

Sometimes, even when Carmelo Anthony doesn’t put himself in the news, he becomes it. Jim Boeheim made waves during the Olympics when he essentially tossed overboard the notion Melo will ever hoist the Larry O’Brien. “He’s unlikely to win an NBA title,” Boeheim said. “He’s never been on a team that even had a remote chance of winning an NBA title.”

Boeheim was trying to pay Anthony a compliment by highlighting when he has elite talent around him he’s a winner (i.e. Syracuse, Olympic men’s national team). “But he’s always made his team better,” added Boeheim. “It’s obvious. You look back on your total basketball experience and he had a great high school team, he won the NCAA championship and he’s won three gold medals in the Olympics. That’s a pretty good resume.’

It will end up being the never ending storyline surrounding Melo. While all his friends seem to be good enough to collect titles, he’s at home watching the playoffs from his couch. The Knicks are more interesting this season, but are they much better? They’ve added a few interesting pieces, led by…

Ezeli is a 26-year-old Nigerian sensation whose legend grew in his homeland because of winning the NBA Championship in 2015 with Golden State. He’s had an injection to the knee, of bone marrow aspirate concentrate, which should help with pain, but is he worth the money?

With the Warriors restocking with Kevin Durant, what happens to Oklahoma City…

Blake Griffin & The Clippers – Reunited?

Blake Griffin has one more year with the Los Angeles Clippers. Last season is one that will be best forgotten for Blake, as he was plagued by injury throughout. But as a Oklahoma native does he search out the Thunder as his next stop to team with Russell Westbrook? If so, OKC retains its place as one of the most popular teams, because one of the league’s faces is gone…

Kobe’s New Venture:

Kobe Bryant is not one to rest on his laurels, announcing his new venture capital fund, “Bryant Stibel”. A $100 million venture, Kobe has teamed up with Jeff Stibel, who is a long term investor/entrepreneur. Investing in things like technology and media, no doubt Kobe and Jeff will need to find a solicitor to help them with legal matters in the years ahead.

As Kobe leaves, another face comes to SoCal…
