Bringing in KGThe main rumor i DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe going to Boston for Garnett. Although Jordan and Bledsoe are Buy NBA Live Mobile Coins both talented young players, its a deal the Clippers can afford to make. Jordan is a strong defender due to his length, but Garnett's nagging has grown even more ceaseless in his latter years, and he's likely a better option on that end of the floor than Jordan. And his jump shot would stretch the floor for Los Angeles, while Jordan's offensive game is composed of little besides dunks and tips. Bledsoe is an up-and-coming point guard thanks to his speed, but with


Chauncey Billups now healthy, he's somewhat superfluous for the Clips.However, for all the trade deadline talk that goes into salary caps, team needs, and behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing, this trade could come down to the desires of two players: Chris Paul and Kevin Garnett. Some have indicated that Paul wants Garnett, and if he wants Garnett, the Clippers will apparently try to get Garnett, if Paul thinks it will make them more of a contender. But even if both teams agree on the deal, Garnett holds a no-trade clause. Garnett addressed that issue straight on, saying that he "bleeds green", but the


Clippers seem to believe that they can convince him to change his mind and waive his no-trade clause.Tom Ziller of SB Nation broke down whether Garnett is worth the price the Celtics are asking - long story short, yes - while Steve Perrin of Clips Nation said that the main concern should be Garnett's no-trade clause.What's the gistIf the Clippers make a move at the trade deadline, it will likely be for Garnett, but even then, it will come down to Garnett's desire to play for Los Angeles. If he does, it's a coup for the Clippers: they'll be better in the short-term - he's an upgrade over


Jordan - and in the long-term - it would help keep Paul. If not, it's a missed opportunity, although they'll still be one of the top options to contend for a Western Conference title In this Storystream  NBA trade rumors: Could Kevin Garnett really get dealt Marcus Morris traded to Phoenix Suns for future second-round pick Los Angeles Clippers trade rumors: Kevin Garnett could help Clips now, keep Chris Paul happy Would Kevin Garnett put the  Cheap NBA Live Coins Clippers over the top?View all 14 stories  NBA 2K - Search - Page 2024 - A schedule: Celtics visit Nuggets, Bucks take on Nets -

Wall, snapping his fingers.For Beal, adjusting to the NBA didn't come like this, but it almost never does for players his age. The fact he's playing with such poise makes his early struggles feel like a distant memory. It's as if he broke through a rookie wall placed right in front of his starting line."He was a baby when he came in and now he's a young boy," said Wizards swingman Martell Webster with a laugh. Webster said he sees an "immaculate" sense of urgency from Beal on the floor.


"He has his head on his shoulders and he's very focused on being a great basketball player," Webster continued. "When you have that mentality in anything, you'll do the necessary steps it takes to achieve that.""He's still got a lot of steps to go, but the kid is playing phenomenal," said Webster. "I keep telling him just stay humble and keep that hunger in his gut. As long as he has that, it's going to take him a long way in this league."Earning compliments about your mentality and maturity is more difficult than having teammates talk about your talent.

Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Pau Gasol and Buy NBA Live Mobile Coins Metta World Peace are all north of age 30 and eyeing what could likely be their last real look at an NBA title. Howard was brought in as the final piece in what was almost certainly a championship-caliber team on paper.But things haven't played out that way, and the Lakers are searching for continuity and a team identity in addition to fighting through numerous injuries to Howard, Nash, Gasol, Jordan Hill and Steve Blake. There's also the issue of personnel when it comes to


 Mike D'Antoni's fast-paced, high-octane system. Given their age, the Lakers have had a tough time adjusting to his style of offense.

Kobe Bryant injury: Lakers star exits after hurting elbow vs. Thunder - Kobe Bryant suffered an apparent right arm injury during Tuesday night's game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder and was forced to exit in the first quarter.The injury occurred in the first quarter, and he immediately headed into the Chesapeake Energy Arena locker room.The injury is said to be an ulnar nerve contusion according to Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register, and his return is questionable.


For all intents and purposes, it's the equivalent to what's commonly referred to as a stinger.A prolonged or even short-term loss of Bryant would have major implications for Los Angeles. The Lakers are at the .500 mark for the first time in 2013, and their chances to go above that mark in a Buy NBA Live Coins tough environment on the road would dwindle substantially without him on the floor.Oklahoma City has beaten the Lakers five straight times in their own building, including three times in the playoffs.Bryant has returned to the bench as of the 4:11 mark in the first quarter.More in the NBA:• Dennis Rodman: The unwitting diplomat• GIFs!

San Antonio has won five of its seven Buy NBA Live Coins games without their All-Star point guard, but considering the Spurs face All-Star snub Stephen Curry and Spurs-killer Jarrett Jack, there is a belief that Golden State finally has the chops to pull off a win.After all, the two loses since Parker injured his ankle came against two young and rising point guards. Rookie Damian Lillard led the Portland Trail Blazers to a resounding 136-106 victory in San Antonio on


March 8 with 35 points and nine assists. Four days later, the Spurs fell in Minnesota as second-year Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio torched them for 21 points and 12 assists. Curry could like his chances knowing about those performances. The Spurs' defense has been an issue of late as well. And Golden's State hasn't had so much trouble on that end of the floor. The Warriors have won four of five games, and even including a 113-95 loss to the Chicago Bulls, they are giving up only 84.6 points per game during that span.What to watchSan Antonio has defended the Warriors' young scorers quite well in two previous matchups this season. Kawhi Leonard


Danny Green and company have held Klay Thompson to 12-of-34 shooting from the floor, and San Antonio also held rookie swingman Harrison Barnes to 2-of-13 shooting in those contests. Indeed, Jack and Curry have the potential to make up for that -- Jack scored 30 to go with 10 assists in a 107-101 Warriors victory in Golden State this year -- but any wriggling away from the Spurs' tough defense on the wings could give the Warriors an added boost to perhaps end the 28-game road losing skid in San Antonio.Time: 8:30 p.m.

Class of 2012, was supposed to have a freshman year Madden NFL 18 Coins similar to Anthony Davis last season. Instead, his one season at Westwood was strikingly similar to O.J. Mayo's only season at cross-town rival USC. Like Muhammad, Mayo made his name playing against younger players on the AAU circuit but couldn't translate that dominance when matched up against his true peers in college.


While they were both productive as freshmen, neither looked like the future All-Star their recruiting rankings suggested they would be. As a result, they earned somewhat unfair reputations as malcontents, victims of a culture that views high school rankings as the ultimate goal rather than a small step on a much longer journey


On the surface, Muhammad being 20 rather than 19 doesn't seem like that big a deal. However, in youth sports, an extra year can create a huge edge in both physical and emotional maturity. That's why, as Malcolm Gladwell pointed out in his book "Outliers," most great Canadian hockey players are born early in the year, just after the


Jan. 1 cut-off date for determining their eligibility in youth leagues. Players born in January have an 11-month advantage over players born in December, which translates into an edge in size, speed and Cheap madden mobile coins confidence that can be insurmountable.
