Well, the draft was last night and it was the best draft I’ve ever seen. Not, because of the draft itself, but because big time trades were being made too!! One move I’m going to talk about that may lead to another big move in the NBA. Anybody heard of Jordan Bell? No, well I’ll get back to that.
The Warriors that team with all the firepower all the defense. Yeah Yeah Yeah those guys that added Durant and won Rings this year. Well, it’s time for players to get paid. In my previous article, I laid out that Iggy’s contract is up, Klay is due, and Steph is due. The numbers are crazy Steph 200 Million range, and Klay the 90-100 Million range. What to do? There are so many options and so many variables. Who might take less to stay this and that on and on lol.
So, I’m watching the draft and the Warriors pay 3.5 million to the Bulls for this guy. They take this kid Jordan Bell 38th pick out of Oregon(Ducks). I’m intrigued at this point so I look up some film and everything on Bell. I’m looking at the film and I’m seeing this guy swat and swat everybody’s shoots, layups, and dunks. Bell is 6’9, 227 lbs.’, PF, Age 22.5, Record of 32-6, he is the reigning NCAA Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, made the All-Defensive Team, and the All-Conference 2nd Team, Record for Blocks with Oregon. I thought to myself who on the Warriors does that sound like that’s getting paid big money??
Mr. Draymond Green step into my office we need to renegotiate your contract. That 85 Million well, you want to stay take a cut or you can be traded. We have a young guy locked down that can do your job now. He’s looks better on the floor, more athletic, has a better offense game, and doesn’t come with the headaches. Enter Jordan Bell your replacement now or for the future. Draymond has four years left making 15-16 million dollars a year. Now, Iggy said he’d take less, Durant is saying he’d take less, Draymond your turn buddy.
These darn Warriors not only draft right, but they have free agency on lock too. Man, if they can pull this off and keep this team intact. We’re looking at a dangerous team for at least the next 1-2 years. My Cavs better hurry up and get Melo, plain and simple. It’s the only play the Cavs have left. They need a guy that can play down low, shoot, and has his own dribble. Melo is the only option left.
