Twitter isn’t safe for anyone. Especially if you have an opinion (spoiler alert: everyone does). The NBA and its fans have taken a chunk of Twitter and shaped it to fit what the people want, and the people want drama!

NBA Rumors: New Orleans Pelicans could trade Brandon Ingram for ‘All-Star type player’

Levon Satamian | January 21st, 2019

The Los Angeles Lakers had a good week last week. It could have been a better week but I will get into that later on. The Lakers started off last week hosting the Chicago Bulls, before heading west to face the Oklahoma City Thunder and then the Houston Rockets.
