Yesterday, the Carmelo Anthony drama finally came to an end (for now) as the Houston Rockets traded Anthony and cash to the Chicago Bulls. Anthony hasn’t played a game since November 11th and the Rockets have been trying to trade him for months.
For anybody who read my DeMarcus Cousins piece on TheScorecrow, available here, they would know that I believe he is not as big of an asset to the Warriors as analysts make him seem. In my debut article, I asserted my idea that Cousins’ Achilles injury may render him almost futile to the Golden State Warriors organization. With Boogie making his debut for Golden State against the Clippers on January 18 with 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists in 15 minutes, this follow-up piece will substantiate or negate the predictions I previously made about him six months ago.
The Los Angeles Lakers entered Saturday’s contest against the Houston Rockets without star player LeBron James and backup point guard Rajon Rondo. Both players have been cleared to return to practice starting Monday and the timing could not be better with starting point guard Lonzo Ball suffering a sprained ankle in the third quarter against Houston. Ball is expected to miss the next 6 weeks making his potential return sometime in early March.
