With Kevin Love headed to Cleveland, let’s take a look at the 5 favorites to win the 2015 NBA title.
Kevin Love has finally been traded. With the deal in place, let’s take a look at the top five starting lineups in the NBA…
John Wall finished with 24 points, Nene scored 20, and the Washington Wizards beat the Chicago Bulls 75-69 on Tuesday night to clinch their first-round series in five games.
Drew Gooden knows what it is like to play for a team that blew a 3-1 lead, so he won’t breathe easy until the Washington Wizards finish off the Chicago Bulls.
Even with the team’s “X-factor” suspended, the Washington Wizards had a No. 42 sitting next to the bench. The 57-year-old with graying hair couldn’t box out or grab a rebound, but owner Ted Leonsis waved his red towel and egged on a cheering crowd that chanted “Free Nene!”
Washington Wizard’s forward-center Nene has been suspended one game without pay for “head-butting and grabbing guard-forward Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls around the neck with both hands and attempting to throw him down,” announced Saturday by Rod Thorn, President of Basketball Operations.
A photo snapped by a passerby and posted on Twitter showed Rose and his apparent tour guide stopped at a street corner on Constitution Avenue.
If empty seats are any indication, the Washington Wizards are just as big of a surprise in their own city as they are to the rest of the NBA.
Here’s what you may have missed, or if you didn’t, what’s worth re-reading this week (April 21-25).
They are the 19th NBA team to win the first two on the road in a seven-game set, and all but three (1969 Warriors, 1994 Suns, 2005 Rockets) went on to capture the series.
