Before the free agency even start the LA Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans announce that both teams agreed to trade their players, Pelicans Anthony Davis will be sent to LA in exchange of young core Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and some first round picks in the near future this July 6 which already happens as of writing and the deal is already done.
As soon as the Free Agency start, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving both leaving their team to join forces in the Brooklyn Nets. Durant leaving the Golden State Warriors where he won 2 NBA Title, while Kyrie Irving is leaving Boston Celtics, where are there some reports that he and his former team did not get along during his tenure with the Celtics.
Al Horford the heart of soul of the Celtics opted out his contract and sign with the 76ers forming a title contender with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons in this upcoming season while former 76ers Jimmy Butler traded to the Miami Heat.
Perhaps the most awaited decision of this year free agency is Kawhi Leonard decision on where he will play next? A lot of rumors that he will join the Lakers or run another year win the Raptors where he leads the team in their first ever NBA Title in franchise history, but all of that ended when Kawhi decided to agree a 3 year deal with the Raptors right after Paul George traded to the Clippers.
We thought that the Kawhi’s decision will be the end of this year blockbuster free agency not until the Houston Rocket made a big move of trading NBA All-Star Chris Paul to Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange of former MVP Russell Westbrook.
With this big trade and NBA Superstar signing with new teams the league has now become more balance, unlike before where the Golden State warriors have been the favorite team to win it all for the fast 4 – years. Now all we have to do is wait and see and whose team made the right moves and which players or duo can excel or co-exist as soon the season begin?
Here are the list of Top 5 NBA Duo’s that we must watch as the 2019- 2020 NBA Regular Season Starts.
1. LA Lakers – LeBron James and Anthony Davis
2. LA Clippers – Kawhi Leonard and Paul George
3. Brooklyn Nets – Kevin Durant – Kyrie Irving
4. Golden State Warriors – Stephen Curry – Klay Thompson
5. Huston Rockets – James Harden – Russell Westbrook
Among the list is perhaps the best duo today? Aside from Warriors duo Curry and Thompson we have not yet seen the other 4 duo’s plays together as a team, but on papers LeBron and AD is far the best duo in the list? But still we have to see to decide if the Lakers made the right moves?
