NBA news should be the same as NFL news. The hype is out there about who’s going to be a top pick and who’s not, who has superstar potential and who doesn’t. NBA trade rumors are as famous as the NFL trade rumors.
For the record, I am a fan of the NBA and I watched the Olympics last week, so I don’t like the World Cup (because I think its too soft). However, it makes sense to me that in the current political climate, the NBA news would be even more depressing than usual. We can’t have the Olympics disrupted by protests, riots, angry fans, or a loss of communication due to a shaky country-wide power grid.
The NBA will continue to grow in popularity. No one is asking for their favorite team to be blown off the map, but it’s just smart business to be cautious. Whether you’re an owner of a player, or both, it’s always smart to be aware of rumors.
As a fan of the NBA, it’s your job to stay up-to-date on NBA trade rumors. If there is any specific team that seems like it could use a trade, you need to follow the news, and see if there is any movement. The recent reports have created some doubt in some owners minds, and the team is more likely to fall to the middle of the first round than a lower spot.
I’m not against fans cheering for a particular team, but they need to be careful in how they go about the game. Because the NBA can affect so many fans in the world, people are getting too caught up in rooting for their team. If one team starts to slip, the other team may get all of the blame.
One of the worst things about trade rumors is the fact that they come in different forms. Some are legitimate, some are not. Some talk about teams feeling too much pressure because of the Super Bowl, or an upcoming championship game. Other reports talk about players wanting to leave, or teams just having a lack of confidence in their current team.
However, I can tell you right now that the NBA news today is far less stressful than the NFL trade rumors. Fans do not hate their favorite team because of the Super Bowl. Instead, players are upset because they have been struggling and have little faith in their current team.
There are so many rumours, and I think that owners and players alike can handle this situation well. It’s not necessarily going to cost the team the playoffs, or win a championship, but will definitely cause some negative thoughts in some owners minds. So if you have a piece of the NBA, be careful what you wish for.
