Everything was lining up perfectly for the New York Knicks. They had cleared two max slots for free agents and after a successful tanking campaign, the Knicks were in prime position to draft Zion Williamson.
But nothing is guaranteed in the NBA Draft Lottery. And the ping pong balls did not fall in the Knicks favor tonight, as they ended up with the third pick in the draft.
While things could have been worse for the Knicks, as they could have fallen out of the top three picks altogether, fans were not happy about missing out on Zion Willliamson.
Even if their fans think otherwise, all is not lost for the Knicks. They can still entice Kevin Durant and another free agent with their cap room and will likely end up with Zion’s Duke teammate R.J. Barrett in the draft.
If the Knicks can get Durant in free agency, none of this will matter. But at least for tonight, Knicks fans are left to wonder what if?
NSFW: Lamar Odom used a Fake Penis to Beat A Drug Test For Team USA
Lamar Odom has an incredible story. Not only did he play on one of the most successful dynasties in the NBA, but he has also cheated death after nearly dying at the tail end of a bender in a brothel near Las Vegas. One might think that someone who has had such success might work even harder to keep that legacy in tact. Maybe they might try to brush the other things under the rug, but this is not the case for Odom. Instead, he has written a tell-all book that goes into excruciating details about his indiscretions.
Perhaps the most alarming details that have surfaced from Odom’s book are those concerning a drug test he took in 2004 in order to qualify for Team USA.
He wrote, “There was no way I was going to pass. I had been smoking weed every day that summer. Panic set in.”
Odom did his best to research how to beat a drug test and stumbled upon an article online that lead him to ordering what he calls in his book, “a giant, rubber, black c– to arrive the next day.” His next step was to find clean urine, which he asked his trainer to provide. Then he filled the prosthetic penis with the sample and used it for the test. While an NBA security official oversaw, Odom proceeded to pretend to pee in the cup. Afterwards, the official, who was unknowingly hoodwinked, said, “welcome to Team USA.”
In his book, Odom reflects on this time in his life. He says being thrown into the limelight was a huge adjustment. With instant celebrity status in dating and marrying a Kardashian, along with his declining NBA career and ultimately his sex and drug addictions, they all culminated in a “lethal cocktail” that created the circumstances to fuel his indiscretions.
Bucks Completely Dismantle Raptors in Game 2
The Milwaukee Bucks are really starting to look like a champion, as they have been dominating everything in their path so far in the playoffs.
After a tightly contested Game 1 loss, the Raptors looked like no match for the Bucks tonight as they were losing by 25 points after the first half.
While the Raptors put up a better fight in the second half, they still were no match for Milwaukee as they cruised to the victory.
This win makes the Bucks 10-1 since the start of the playoffs. Considering the fact that Milwaukee also had the best record in the NBA this season, their playoff dominance should not come as such a surprise.
The Raptors will need to change up their game plan in Game 3 on Sunday, if they want any chance to get back in this series.
Tyreke Evans Dismissed From NBA For Violating Anti-Drug Policy
Tyreke Evans’ NBA career came to a screeching halt today, after he violated the league’s anti-drug policy.
As a result of violation, Evans was essentially banned from all league activities.
While we do not know the specifics of his violation, you can table all of your Stephen A. Smith, “STAY OFF THE WEEEEEEED” jokes as the league does not ban players for marijuana use.
Regardless of the cause, this a real fall from grace for Evans as a player who has had a really solid NBA career up to this point.
Evans is just a year removed from averaging 19.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists with the Memphis Grizzlies. This year, Evans helped the Indiana Pacers make the playoffs despite losing their best player Victor Oladipo to injury early in the season.
Now Evans will have to wait a few years before he can even try to resume his NBA career.
Hopefully Evans can return to the NBA and end his career on a much better note in a few years.
