We have some news that will make your Friday afternoon even better. According to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago, Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine will be targeted by the Atlanta Hawks this summer during free agency. The 27-year-old shooting guard is a two-time NBA All-Star and two-time NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion.
Bob Cousy may be 93 years old but he can still throw shade like no other. The Boston Celtics legend’s legacy was questioned by J.J. Redick, saying Cousy was guarded by “firemen and plumbers” back in his playing days. Cousy appeared on SiriusXM’s NBA Radio and took quite the shot at Redick.
After ESPN basketball analyst JJ Reddick made a dismissive reference to the quality of basketball players in the NBA during the course of Bob Cousy’s career, the Celtics legend offered his response. Reddick, speaking during a debate on “First Take” in April about the best point guards in NBA history, got into an exchange with Chris Russo. Russo advocated for Cousy’s inclusion.
