Once again the pranksters of the NBA were on the prowl snapping photos of sleeping players and this time Kevin Love got Chris Paul, Lebron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Harden, and Deron Williams all napping together. Anthony Davis looks hilarious and Chris Paul looks like a drooling baby, classic.
Deron Williams made it official tonight and has signed a 5-year $98 Million contract with the Brooklyn Nets. He had to sign the contract on his iPad since Team USA is currently practicing for the 2012 Olympics.
So not only are these uniforms the best looking ones yet, they will also make these guys play better in the Olympics. Nike Aerographics is an engineered fabric that is a passive cooling solution allowing greater design and graphic flexibility while creating mesh areas in a garment without adding seams. It adds graphics to a garment that actually aids the performance by increasing air circulation. The shorts alone weigh 14 ounces lighter than the average shorts currently worn by professional players. For more information click here.
So since the players aren’t allowed to talk to the owners of the NBA for the time being, Jay-Z is going up on the billboards in Brooklyn instead of Deron Williams. Since Deron is in the middle of deciding if he wants to play in the states or not, this makes a lot of sense. Man this whole NBA thing is messed up right now, hopefully something can get figured out soon cause I will not be able to handle a year without an NBA season, absolutely not.
Looks like with the lockout lurking over players’ heads, some people are already starting to make big decisions. According to ESPN, Deron Williams is planning on going to play overseas for the national team of Turkey. A lot of analysts are saying this decision is way too big of a risk considering that D-Will still has $34 mill left on his contract with the Nets. Turkey is willing to pay him $200,000 a month on a $5 million contract. Selling out I guess…
