Bojan Bogdanovic will be an asset to watch over the side of the New York Knicks in the upcoming 2024 NBA offseason. The veteran sniper could be released by the Knicks and pay him just $2 million in the summer, or they could elect to keep him and commit $19.032 million worth of salary to the Croatian pro for the 2024-25 season. But even if the Knicks end up choosing to guarantee his deal for the next season, that move could still signal his looming departure from the Big Apple. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvCJtmE-r60 What Will the New York Knicks Do with Bojan…

Alec Burks was not expected to play ample minutes in the 2024 NBA Playoffs for the New York Knicks, but with his team suffering a rash of injuries, he was able to see the floor a lot, especially in the second round versus the Indiana Pacers. He probably has shown enough in that series to warrant a significant payout in the upcoming 2024 NBA free agency. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAO21jJFNH4 Will Alec Burks Secure the Bag in the Offseason After Stint With the New York Knicks?

One major reason the Minnesota Timberwolves remain winless in their best-of-seven series in the 2024 Western Conference finals against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks is the shooting woes of Karl-Anthony Towns. Expected to help Anthony Edwards carry the load on offense in the Mavs series, Towns has yet to put up a decent and efficient scoring performance in the matchup. In Game 3, Towns shot just 5/18 from the field and even missed all his eight attempts from the 3-point region, finishing with just 14 points to go with 11 rebounds and three assists in 38 minutes of a…

A scary moment took place in the second quarter of Sunday night’s playoff game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Minnesota Timberwolves when Mavs rookie Dereck Lively II took an inadvertent hit to the head off T’wolves’ big man Karl-Anthony Towns’ knee. Lively exited the game after the brutal hit and was later ruled out for the remainder of the contest. It did not take long before fans on X (formerly Twitter) started to go after Towns, who did not make it hard for trolls and haters to make fun of him by also shooting poorly in Game 3 of…

The Minnesota Timberwolves need to win Game 3 of their 2024 Western Conference finals series against the Dallas Mavericks. Failure to do so would mean a seemingly virtual elimination from title contention, considering that there have been zero teams in league history who have ever come back from a 3-0 playoff hope and won a best-of-seven playoff series. And if the Timberwolves are to win in Dallas this Sunday night, they are going to need star big man Karl-Anthony Towns to have a breakout performance in the series. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fktcKdoVqR4&t=1s&pp=ygUZbWF2ZXJpY2tzIHZzIHRpbWJlcndvbHZlcw%3D%3D Minnesota Timberwolves Head Coach Has Demand for Struggling Karl-Anthony Towns Towns…

The Minnesota Timberwolves have their backs against the wall going into Sunday night’s matchup versus Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. Down 2-0 in the 2024 Western Conference finals, Edwards and the Timberwolves can’t afford to lose Game 3. Otherwise, that would virtually doom their chances of making it to the 2024 NBA Finals, given the fact that no team in the history of the NBA has successfully won a playoff series after losing the first three games of a postseason matchup. Edwards isn’t one to lose hope. He even told reporters ahead of Game 3 in Dallas that he’s…

Not that they are desperately in need of their injured big man to come back to action, but it doesn’t appear that the Boston Celtics will surely have power forward Kristaps Porzingis in Game 4. Porzingis has not played since the first round of the 2024 NBA Playoffs and could need more time in his recovery process from a right soleus strain injury. Before Game 3 of the Celtics’ Eastern Conference finals matchup versus the Indiana Pacers, Boston head coach Joe Mazzulla said he has no idea if the Latvian unicorn will play in the potential series-clinching game. Via Jared…

A two-time NBA champion could find his way to the City of Brotherly Love in the summer. The Philadelphia 76ers are among the teams to watch out for in the coming offseason, as they look to make some improvements with the hopes that they will finally get over the hump in the playoffs while Joel Embiid is still in his prime. One name that has been linked to the 76ers amid the brewing NBA free agency rumors is Denver Nuggets shooter Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who could be a free agent soon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFS1yICXKcY The Philadelphia 76ers Have a Potential NBA Free Agency…

Once again, Luka Doncic proved that he could deliver when it matters the most for the Dallas Mavericks. The Slovenian superstar drained a dagger game-winning 3-pointer in the clutch for the Mavs in Game 2 of their 2024 NBA Western Conference finals series versus Anthony Edwards and the Minnesota Timberwolves. He also did with four-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year winner Rudy Gobert in his face. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMYC9FF9T0Q&t=10s Luka Doncic Put on a Show in Game 3 for the Dallas Mavericks But that monster 3-pointer was hardly the only great thing that Doncic did in Game 3. It was just…
