RESPECT Magazine’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson talks NBA with Chicago’s D & Davis Show. Press Play Below To Listen!
Since the start of the NBA season, folks have marveled at the play of the Kyrie Irving-led Boston Celtics and the emergence of the rising Philadelphia 76ers, led by Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
Also along the Northeast Corridor, the New York Knicks have played inspired basketball with their star Kristaps Porzingis. Also in New York, the Brooklyn Nets have accrued a promising roster with DeAngelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe Jahlil Okafor and Caris LeVert. The consistent play of Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has been inspiring to watch.
At 30-10, the Celtics are ahead of the pack in the NBA’s Eastern Conference.
Sitting at seeds nine through eleven in the East, the Nets, Knicks and Sixers would not make it into the playoffs. It’s realistic to believe that the Knicks and Sixers could make the cut, when it is all said and done.
But could the Nets join the other three?
Well, it would take a Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers, Washington Wizards and Miami Heat skid to do so.
I discuss that notion on Chicago’s D & Davis Show. Press play above to listen.
