Taking a look at the Atlanta Hawks newest PG, Jeremy Lin, and setting some new bold predictions for the 2018-19 season before it starts.
In one of the most perplexing moves of the entire NBA offseason, Jeremy Lin was traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Atlanta Hawks.
The trade, involving multiple swaps of second rounders and a Euro stash,Jeremy Lin jerseys
came just under a month after the Draft, and just two days before the trade of Dennis Schröder. The move was essentially the climax of the Hawks’ most interesting offseason in years.
The 30-year-old point guard is years past his Linsanity prime, but he’s still an above-average point guard, who really hasn’t played since the ‘16-’17 season thanks to a ruptured patellar tendon he suffered on opening night last year.
Here, we’re going to set some bold predictions for his season before it starts. Let’s take a look:
The NBA offseason is defined by change—new players in new locations, new rookies, new coaches, new contracts.
But change doesn’t always reach everyone who needs it. Some players are trapped by contracts signed during summers past and Cheap Nba Jerseys either buried on the depth chart since or in danger of realizing that fate.
Change could be as simple as an altered role or as dramatic as a new address. The point is the following players are trending in the wrong direction and in need of a shake-up.
Different circumstances put them on this list, and ideal outcomes aren’t universal. But all are huddled together under the something’s-gotta-give umbrella and hoping things can break in their favor.
If it had happened to just about any other player in the NBA, we probably wouldn’t be writing this story about Nike’s new NBA jerseys. But because this happened to LeBron James on Tuesday night, it’s news.
Celtics guard Jaylen Brown grabbed hold of James’s jersey, creating a neat straight-line tear between the 2 and the 3 on James’s back (as you can see in the photo at the top). And with Nike in its first year as the official uniform provider of the NBA — it’s an eight-year deal worth nearly $1 billion overall — it’s hardly a good look when the game’s best player, a Nike-sponsored player, gets his jersey torn nearly in half during the first game of the season.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Nike officials spent Wednesday “extensively reviewing” why James’s jersey split. It wasn’t the first time it happened, either, as Lakers guard Tyler Ennis had his own wardrobe malfunction during the preseason.
“The quality and performance of all our products are of utmost importance,cheap nba jerseys
” Nike said in a statement released Friday. “We are obviously very concerned to see any game day jersey tear and are working with the NBA and teams to avoid this happening in the future.”
If you want to conduct your own investigation, the NBA is auctioning off James’s torn opening-night jersey, with all proceeds benefiting hurricane relief. The bidding stood at $10,040 as of Thursday morning.
Nike also faced scrutiny in 2012 over its new NFL uniforms, with the game’s bigger players complaining that they were too tight.
“I hate them. They are built for thin guys,” 49ers guard Alex Boone said at the time. “It makes me look like I have big old love handles.”
