Nearly a month ago, Chris Paul recorded his 10,000th career assist. On Monday, he went further into NBA history, moving into fifth place on the league’s all-time assists list.
The Phoenix Suns star recorded No. 10,142, passing Magic Johnson on the leaderboard. Next up is Mark Jackson—though it’s likely he could hop up two spots on the list when the time comes. Just one pass separates Jackson from Steve Nash, Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic with the pair posting 10,334 and 10,335.
Paul entered Monday night averaging 8.7 assists per game. Starting from No. 10,142, he’d need 22 games at that pace to reach the next level.
The Suns only have 15 regular-season games left, so him reaching the next ranking this season depends on either him going off or the Suns Cheap NBA Jerseys China making it far enough into the postseason.
He’s still some ways away from Jason Kidd’s No. 2 spot at 12,091, and the all-time leader, John Stockton, is still plenty ahead at 15,806.
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Chet Holmgren, the nation’s top overall recruit, announced he is heading to Gonzaga on the same day star guard Jalen Suggs announced he is leaving the Bulldogs after one season to enter the NBA draft.
Holmgren said on ESPN that he will play for the Bulldogs. He will likely play only one college season.
Holmgren had also been considering Ohio State, Michigan, North Carolina, Minnesota, Memphis and Georgetown.
“It was their consistent approach, Cheap NBA Jerseys Stitched, how versatile they are on the court and their offensive style,” said Holmgren. “They take their talent and tweak their system based on their personnel. They know how to put it all together.”
Holmgren combines the skills of a guard with a 7-foot-1 frame and has been projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NBA draft.
As a senior at Minnehaha Academy in Minnesota, Holmgren averaged 20.8 points, 12.6 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 4.7 blocks, shooting 80% from the field.
Holmgren is following in the footsteps of Suggs, a close friend who is also from Minnesota.
Suggs had a stellar freshman season, capped off by hitting one of the most memorable shots in Final Four history, a buzzer-beating 3-pointer Cheap NBA Jerseys Free Shipping, against UCLA that sent Gonzaga into the national championship game. The Zags lost to Baylor in the title game.
Suggs announced in a Twitter post that he will enter the draft, which was anticipated since he’s considered a top pick.
“Super excited, can’t wait to take this next step in my journey,” Suggs said during an interview on ESPN. “It’s something I’ve dreamed about since I was a little kid. I’m ready to get going.”
Suggs averaged 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists as a freshman.
Suggs, who played with Holmgren at Minnehaha Academy Cheap NBA Jerseys From China, and on AAU teams, was previously the highest-rated recruit in Gonzaga history. He was 11th in 247sports’ composite rankings when he committed to the Zags and 10th in the final rankings for the 2020 class.
NEW YORK — After a dominant 34-point, 10-rebound, 10-assist performance to help close out the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night at Barclays Center, Brooklyn Nets star James Harden was already looking ahead to the Milwaukee Bucks, Cheap Milwaukee Bucks Jerseys the team’s second-round opponent, by the time he sat down for his postgame news Cheap Boston Celtics Jerseys conference after the 123-109 Game 5 win.
“I’m thinking about them right now,” Harden said after his fourth career playoff triple-double helped the Nets advance into the Eastern Conference semifinals for the first time since 2014. “Just the matchups and things that they Cheap Brooklyn Nets Jerseys do on both ends of the ball. Obviously, we know how good they are on both sides and their individual talents.”
With their backs against the wall, the Knicks will need to search each and every option in order to give their all to come back down 3-1. One interesting idea could be adding a player to the rotation that Tom Thibodeau has cut short since beginning the postseason.
Typically, Thibodeau has only played Cheap New York Knicks Jerseys a nine-man roster, with Derrick Rose replacing Elfrid Payton in the starting lineup. Payton has been benched since game two and Nerlens Noel’s minutes have significantly decreased.
In the past two games, the Knicks have started Derrick Rose, Reggie Bullock, RJ Barrett, Julius Randle, and Taj Gibson. Alec Burks, Nerlens Noel, Obi Toppin, and Immanuel Quickley have headed up the bench.
A pivotal moment in this Philadelphia 76ers season might’ve taken place in the middle of the night this week along I-95 in rural Maryland.
Monday night was bad for the Sixers. They lost star Joel Embiid to a knee injury that could cost him multiple playoff games and Cheap Philadelphia 76ers Jerseys threaten their title hopes. They fell apart without him in the second half that night, allowing the Washington Wizards to win Game 4 and extend their first-round series. And then their charter plane broke down, and they had to take buses back to Philadelphia.
But by 6 a.m. Tuesday, when the Sixers rolled into home, there was a different outlook. The bus ride turned into an open therapy session and altered players’ frame of mind.
That’s why we need to keep an eye on Robinson-Earl. This sophomore power forward doesn’t have a lot of wow factor going for him, but he is one of the most intelligent players in his draft class and is Cheap Toronto Raptors Jerseys getting nowhere near the hype he deserves.
Robinson-Earl’s alma mater already has Raptors ties through former Wildcat Kyle Lowry, but JRE has more to offer the Raptors than just a shared college history.
Robinson-Earl’s standing in NBA mock drafts is one of the dirty little secrets about his potential as a pro. Projected as high as 26th by The Ringer, others like Tankathon and ESPN Big Board have him ranked more in the 45-55 range and as low as 69th. However, this variance has less to do with JRE’s weaknesses and more to do with how scouts value his strengths.
With the first round of the NBA playoffs fully underway, Chicago Bulls fans are either left finding other teams to root for, or reflecting on what could’ve been this season for their squad. At least it does look like the Bulls are getting closer to finally ending this postseason drought in 2022.
First-year head coach Billy Donovan and the Bulls finished up the 2020-21 regular season with a record of 31-41, which left them just on the Cheap Chicago Bulls Jerseys outside looking in for the play-in tournament. The Bulls fell short of competing teams Cheap Charlotte Hornets Jerseys like the Indiana Pacers, Charlotte Hornets, Washington Wizards, Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys etc. for a spot in the play-in tournament, and wound up missing the postseason for the fourth straight year.
As a result, the Bulls are in the lottery again and will be looking to finally get it right in a cycle of free agency to get this team over the hump in Cheap Orlando Magic Jerseys the coming season. But it will take some luck for the Bulls to get their lottery pick back in this draft class from the Orlando Magic.
Among the hotter trade rumors around the NBA Cheap Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys landscape at the moment concerns the Cleveland Cavaliers standout 22-year-old former Alabama Crimson Tide point guard Collin Sexton. And if this is the case that the divisional foe Cavaliers are bound to move Sexton this offseason, then one team that could be a viable landing spot for him is the Chicago Bulls.
Financial terms of the new deal weren’t disclosed. UWM is a mortgage company and the deal makes it the Pistons’ “exclusive mortgage partner.”
“United Wholesale Mortgage is a premier Michigan-based company that shares our mission for providing unparalleled service to customers Cheap Detroit Pistons Jerseys while making a difference in the community,” Detroit Pistons Vice Chairman Arn Tellem said in a statement.
The jersey partnership will give UWM new exposure to Detroit Pistons and NBA fans.
Can the two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks get past the Brooklyn Nets’ Big Three of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden? How much will the Philadelphia 76ers get out of All-NBA big man Joel Embiid, Cheap Atlanta Hawks Jerseys who is day-to-day with a knee injury? What does Trae Young have for an encore after the Atlanta Hawks knocked out the New York Knicks?
In the Western Conference, the Phoenix Suns stunned the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers to secure a second-round meeting with the Denver Nuggets, Cheap Denver Nuggets Jerseys who overcame more Damian Lillard heroics to advance.
As we wait on the victor of LA Clippers-Dallas Mavericks in Game 7 (3:30 p.m. ET Sunday on ABC) — the winner faces the top-seeded Utah Jazz in Round 2 — our experts are breaking down what matters most in Nets-Bucks, 76ers-Hawks and Suns-Nuggets, including the keys to each series.
The issue, of course, becomes the Heat’s lack of draft assets to trade. The Oklahoma City Thunder own Miami’s 2021 and 2023 first-round picks, Cheap Miami Heat Jerseys and NBA rules prevent teams from trading picks in consecutive seasons. Because the 2023 pick is lottery-protected, the Heat and Thunder would need to remove protections from the pick for Miami to offer their 2025 first-round pick.
Tyler Herro immediately goes out the door in a Lillard trade. Portland would also ask the Heat to execute a sign-and-trade to send Duncan Robinson to the Blazers as well. We also have to see what other teams offer. If the Philadelphia 76ers have another disappointing finish, will Daryl Morey put Ben Simmons on the trade block? Could anything trump that offer?
WASHINGTON — Katherine Evans is joining the Wizards as the first woman to head the research or analytics department of an NBA franchise.
Monumental Basketball announced the hire Friday, Cheap Washington Wizards Jerseys saying Evans would oversee its research department, supporting the Wizards, the WNBA’s Washington Mystics, the G League’s Capital City Go-Go and Wizards District Gaming. Her new title is vice president of research and information systems.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have a plethora of young talent on their roster – a lot of which is headlined by their sub-30-aged star Karl-Anthony Towns. Ranking those players in terms of potential is an inevitably difficult task,Cheap Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys although in terms of players that have NOT reached 25 years of age (yet), there is a clear winner on the Timberwolves roster.
That said, the Timberwolves are one of the youngest teams in the NBA. They’ve had a lot of draft capital over the course of the past decade-or-so, but have only used some of it to their advantage. Now, with the 2020 first overall pick Anthony Edwards shining, it looks as though Minnesota really has something on their roster.
