Trade Kyrie Irving for Ben Simmons Rumors!

Every year we have a saga in the NBA league, and this year the focus is on two players Ben Simmons and Kyrie Irving.

David Aldridge, Sam Amick, and John Hollinger analyzed the situation of Ben Simmons, Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard, and Bradill Bill for “Athletic”.

What attracted the most attention was their knowledge related to the trades of these great stars, especially Ben Simmons from the Philadelphia 76ers and Kyrie Irving from the Brooklyn Nets.

“It’s not uncommon for a team to have a conflict and create a million scenarios in public, but let’s just look at what’s happening now in the NBA. Everything with Kyrie is kind of fresh, everyone knows he hasn’t been vaccinated and will miss some games and run out a lot of money because he doesn’t want to change his mind.

Gregg Popovich has Serbian heritage and he occasionally spends summers there. He is VERY appreciated in Serbia hence this mural of Pop on the other side of the ocean.

NBA rule changes: This is no longer a foul, Sorry Steph

Steph Curry the Golden State Warriors player also felt the new rules of the NBA league on his skin.

From this season, a foul will no longer be played to a defender when a shooter is “brought” into the defender at an unnatural angle or when he stretches his leg at an unnatural angle.

A foul will be called on the offensive player or nothing will be called as in the attached example of Steph Curry.

He dribbled, started the shot, and hit the defender who was standing with his arms raised and as the rules dictate, it is no longer a foul, and no foul was called.

“Let’s see if there is consistency now!,” NBA player Evan Fournier, the new player of the New York Knicks, commented on this reaction.

Finally, Steph Curry, James Harden, and Trae Young won’t be getting free throws as they used to. Two thumbs up for the NBA officials for changing this ridiculous rule.
