It’s been the talk of the NBA and it’s the talk of the latest PBT Extra — the Cavaliers/Bulls trade of Andrew Bynum for Luol Deng.
Kay Adams asks me what a lot of people have — is this it for Bynum in the NBA? No, not in the least, but how much he gets paid in his next deal and how long it is for will be interesting.
Then we talk about the future of the Bulls (retooling on the fly) and if the Cavaliers can make the playoffs now. Because I guess getting a bottom seed in the East and getting crushed by Miami or Indiana in the first round is important to Dan Gilbert.
If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.
But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.
Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
We had an efficient Carmelo Anthony sighting in the preseason.
Anthony and the Knicks went up against the Wizards and ‘Melo hit 10-of-15 shots to score 21 points. He also had four rebounds and four assists.
Derrick Williams had 23 points on 11 shots to lead the Knicks in scoring, and New York won 115-104.
