/ No Comments
NBA – Sad news for all Derrick Rose fans and even the Cleveland Cavaliers fans where he is currently signed for 1 year deal, the 3 time NBA All-star and 2011 MVP has been reported that he is currently not with his team and several speculations that the former Chicago Bulls superstar might be retiring from basketball due to injury problem?

According to report Derrick Rose is tired of being hurt from basketball every season, he was always hobbled by injuries throughout his entire career that prevented him to blossom in the NBA and became the league greatest point guard but instead his career started to decline every season due to injury problems.

In 2011 - 2012 NBA Season Derrick Rose suffered his first serious injury after suffering an ACL in his left knee in the first round of NBA Playoffs that eventually caused him to miss the entire playoffs.

In 2012 – 2013 NBA Season he was absent for a year due to recovery period caused by the injury suffered last season.

In 2013 – 2014 NBA Season, Rose tore his right knee meniscus on November 22 and was ruled out for the rest of the season.

In 2014–15 NBA Season, Rose and the Bulls are back in the playoffs, but again, he tore his left ACL that caused the Bulls to loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In 2016 – 2017 NBA Season, Rose was already part of the New York Knicks, but again he was ruled out for the rest of the season On April 2, 2017 after tearing the meniscus in his left knee.

And finally on November 24, 2017, Rose decided to leave his team Cleveland Cavaliers to re-evaluate his future in the NBA where he is currently suffering from left ankle injury.

Derrick Rose joins the Cleveland Cavaliers during the NBA Off-season where he will be the backup point guard of Kyrie Irving but things change when Irving was traded to the Boston Celtics in a blockbuster deal in exchange of Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn Nets 2018 unprotected first-round pick. Rose was inserted in Cavs starting five at point guard until Isaiah Thomas returns from injury.

But faith seems not on the Derrick Rose side only in his second game of the 2017 – 2018 NBA Season he suffered a left ankle injury against the Milwaukee Bucks after falling awkwardly due to a hard foul given by center Greg Monroe. Since then, he has been sidelined for several games until this day where he was reported that he was not with his team and probably evaluating his future in the NBA?

What will happen to Derrick Rose career? Will he decided to retire at a very young age to avoid risking further injury? Let’s wait and see this coming days on what might be his final decision?

It was James 57th triple double of his NBA career while leading the league in minutes and most points scored in the final quarter this season.

Early this season the Cavaliers has been criticize for their poor defense which drop them down in 13th place in East Standings with 5 wins and 7 loss but since then things got better as the team and players slowly gelling with each other and starts to play some good defense and now they are back at the top and slowly reclaiming the top of the East Standings.

Cavs are Now Starting to Climb Up in the East Standings

/ No Comments
NBA – The Cleveland Cavaliers manage to get a win against the visiting LA Clippers at home, but it took another extra 5 minutes before they can put away the visiting team in a 118 – 113 win in overtime.

The home team trailed for almost the entire game down by as much a double digit lead in every quarter before they manage to find a solution in the final quarter to extend the game into overtime where the home team finally gets their first lead of the game outscoring the visiting team and eventually gets the win.

LeBron James, who leads the leagues in playing minutes played another big minutes against the Clippers with a grand total of 46 minutes to lead all scorers with 39 points, 14 rebounds and 6 assist to extend the Cavaliers winning streak into 4 straight wins and now starting to climb up in the East Standing after struggling early this season.

The defending Eastern Conference Champion is now showing some sign of championship caliber after winning their last four games, three of them are away and one at home, is this the start of something good for the Cavs? Are the players starting to gel with each other? Let’s see, in the upcoming games if they can continue their winning streak?

Although the Cavaliers wins their 4 straight game in a row the clear problem with this team is that they start the game slow, trailing for almost the entire game before showing some life in the final quarter and poor defense.

They must start the game strong not playing catch for the entire game because it will consume more energy for their team to come back and put a win? Lucky for them LeBron James and Mr. 4th quarter, Kyle Korver always lift the Cavs in close games.

For now the win is a good sign for the Cleveland Cavaliers as many basketball experts are beginning to count them out in the Eastern Conference as a legit contender while believing that the Boston Celtics is the team to beat in the East?

Which team will continue their winning streak? Are the Boston Celtics for real if they can manage to beat the defending champion or just got lucky to come with a win in their early assignment?

While the Warriors are the favorite to win in this match this coming Thursday, for whatever is the result they will remain the team to beat in the NBA Finals whether they face Boston or Cleveland Cavaliers?

Although Michael Jordan could have played more games throughout his NBA Career but his retirement in 1993 – 1994 and 1999 – 2001 NBA Season has prevented him from achieving more in his NBA career? He could won more title? More MVP’s and perhaps a much  higher position or even hold the top spot of All-time scoring list?

Meanwhile, LeBron James, who entered the league at age 18 has already tied Michael Jordan in career games with 1,072 games at age 32 in 15th NBA Season. James will surely pass Jordan in terms of games played and while still in his prime James could possibly add another Championship in his finger, MVP’s or other achievements before he retired?

Both players are always in debate, conversation about who’s the NBA Greatest Player of All-time? Some are voting for Jordan and there’s also for LeBron, Although Jordan has the advantage when it comes to championship comparison, but James is considered as the more talented player because of his ability to play the all-around position and makes his teammates much better.

While James is still playing the comparison between this two will never stop till James retired and that's the time that fans will decide on who is the real GOAT between the two?
