Delonte West-I’m sure most of you have seen the viral clip of Delonte West on the street in handcuffs being questioned by the police. It’s hard to even recognize him, he’s speaking angrily not making any sense at all.

The future for the NBA is now, Ja and Zion are going to be the new faces of the NBA for years to come (I understand that Giannis, Kawhi, and Curry aren’t that old, but they’re not nearly as young as Zion 19yrs old and Ja 20 yrs old).

It was always one of my favorite pictures to send in a group chat that I have with my friends....a picture of Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant's trophies being compared side by side.  That picture was always meant to take a stab at many of my friends favorite player, Kobe Bryant.  I did it because I know how much they thought of him and how much it would upset them to hear that I believed that my favorite was better than theirs. Today, I deleted that picture. Timmy is and will forever be my favorite basketball player and maybe even...
