Three-Time NBA Champion Shaun Livingston Announces His Retirement

Published

Over the past five seasons, the Golden State Warriors have put together one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history, winning three championships and making five-straight appearances in the NBA Finals.

Now they are turning the page to a new era of Warriors basketball, still surrounded around their homegrown ‘Big Three’ of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green’.

But the role players from those great Warriors teams have moved on and for some, are calling it quits altogether. As Shaun Livingston just announced his retirement from the NBA.

In his farewell message, Livingston cites “the injury”, referring to a devastating knee injury that he suffered back in 2007.

The injury was so bad for Livingston, that it almost resulted in his leg being amputated it was so bad.

Livingston made a remarkable recovery from the injury and turned in a fantastic career. The last stages of his career came with the Golden State Warriors, were he proved to be an excellent backup point guard to Curry.

Without Livingston’s ability to make plays and play stout defense at 6-foot-7, the Warriors would not have been three-time champions.

Congrats to Livingston on a great career, which we never could have expected him to have back in 2007.

We are only one week away from getting our first taste of action for the 2019-20 NBA regular season.

Next Tuesday night, the Toronto Raptors will raise their first championship banner to the rafters and give out their championship rings.

The defending champs will then kick off the season for the NBA against the up-and-coming New Orleans Pelicans, in a precursor to the game we have all been waiting to watch.

After the Raptors game, all eyes will be glued to the battle of Los Angeles, when the Clippers square off against the Lakers for the first time this season.

That game has great significance now that it will pit two of the league’s most dynamic duos against one another, as LeBron James and Anthony Davis face Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

LeBron was the only player of the four superstars that was in L.A. last season, as the NBA landscape has changed significantly since a year ago.

With all of the player movement that took place in free agency, the NBA is more wide open than it has been in a long time.

There aren’t many teams that are coming into this season expecting to miss the playoffs and plenty of them actually feel like they have a legitimate chance to make a deep playoff run towards a championship.

As we all anxiously await the first tip, take a look at the first power rankings of the 2019-20 season.

The Washington Mystics Win First WNBA Championship in Thrilling Fashion

What a difference a year makes for the Washington Mystics.

After being swept in last year’s WNBA Finals by the Seattle Storm, the Mystics came back this season with a vengeance.

Lead by league MVP Elena Della Donne, the Mystics secured the best regular-season record in the WNBA and battled in a grueling Finals series against the Connecticut Sun, winning the series 3-2.

With Della Donne battling several injuries (including three herniated discs in her back), it was Emma Meesseman that delivered with 22 points in the winner-take-all Game 5.


Messeman became the first European-born WNBA Finals MVP, while Della Donne added 21 points. Connecticut Sun’s Jonquel Jones fought hard to the very end, leading the runner-ups with 25 points.

This championship was a long time coming for Mystic’s Head Coach Mike Thibault. The winningest coach in WNBA history finally secured his first title after 17 seasons.

Washington Wizards players John Wall, Bradley Beal, Ian Mahinmi and CJ Miles were in attendance to cheer on the Mystics.

With the tenacity these women have shown throughout the season, it’s no surprised Della Done is looking forward to some much-deserved rest.

Stephen Curry Lights Up Timberwolves with 40 Points in Three Quarters

It may only be the Preseason, but Golden State Warrior Stephen Curry is in mid-season form.

In last night’s matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Curry shot a blistering 14-19 from the field for 40 points in only 25 minutes. Curry also knocked down 6 three-pointers and added 6 rebounds and 6 assists.

The Timberwolves had no answer for Curry and the Warriors, losing in a fast-paced 143-123 blowout. 

Young additions Jake Layman and rookie Jarrett Culver were the sole bright spots for the Timberwolves, leading the team in scoring with 17 points apiece.

Ironically, the last player to score 40 points in an NBA Preseason game was also Steph Curry, who once again dropped 40 points against the Timberwolves on Oct. 8th, 2017.

With Kevin Durant leaving in free agency and Klay Thompson out until at least All-Star break, Curry is expected to take on a much more significant offensive role for the Warriors.

If last night is any indicator of what Curry will play like during this year’s regular season, the rest of the NBA might be in trouble.
