Hello again, welcome to the weekly summary of the biggest news and stories from the past week. There were some big developments last week, let’s jump right in!
- The Los Angeles Clippers traded Star forward Blake Griffin to the Pistons in a surprising move. The Clippers received Avery Bradley and Tobias Harris, along with a First round pick. The Clippers look to continue to move pieces to gain draft assets. Will Deandre Jordan and Lou Williams be moved before the trade deadline? Stay tuned
- James Harden delivered a 60 point triple-double, the first in NBA history against the Orlando Magic. Harden is distancing himself from others in the MVP race in my opinion. Stay tuned as I think he will continue to cook the competition!
- Trae Young drops 44 against Baylor in another stellar performance this season. Young just keeps on producing, I really enjoy watching his games and can’t wait to see what he does next.
- The Kansas City Chiefs traded Quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins. A move that surely threw a wrench in many organizations plans who were targeting Smith in free agency. Kirk Cousins will now be the best Quarterback on the market.
- Former NBA player, Rasual Butler dies in single-car crash along with his wife.
- Bulls traded Niko Mirotic to the Pelicans in exchange for a first-round pick, Omer Asik, Jameer Nelson and Tony Allen. This was a move that needed to be done. The Bulls had a crowded front-court. Not a bad deal for both teams.
- The Philadelphia Eagles Defeated Tom Brady and The Patriots to end their Super Bowl drought, Nick Foles took home MVP honors. Former Super Bowl MVP, Malcolm Butler did not play a single defensive snap in what was an odd move by the Patriots coaching staff.
