안전놀이터 the world’s best stage, the NBA (NBA) trade deadline has passed In particular, the 2022-2023 season is evaluated as ‘the best ever’ as big stars move their nests ahead of the trade deadline.
The biggest issue is the transfer of Kevin Durant (35). From the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference, he moved to the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference. As the modifier ‘scoring machine’ follows, Durant’s transfer, which debuted in 2007 and reigns as the best player in the league, is a ‘blockbuster’. Durant is averaging 29.7 points and 5.3 assists this season as well.
Durant’s interests aligned with Phoenix, which desperately needed a ‘WIN NOW’. Phoenix aimed to win the 2020-2021 season, but ended up in second place behind the Milwaukee Bucks. However, Phoenix, which Durant joined, built a strong ‘triangle squadron’ with Devin Booker and Chris Paul. It will also be interesting to see if Paul, who doesn’t yet have a championship ring, can accomplish the task with Durant. Durant promised at a press conference to join the club, “I have already won two championships, and I hope to do it again here.” Durant, who is recovering from an injury, will make his Phoenix debut in an away game against the Charlotte Hornets scheduled for the 3rd of next month.
The transfer of Kyrie Irving (31), the best dribbler in the league, is also a hot topic. Irving, who played a ‘one-two punch’ in Brooklyn with Durant, moved west to the Dallas Mavericks. They eventually broke up after failing to win the championship in Brooklyn. Dallas formed the duo of Luka “Luca Magic” Doncic and Irving.
Durant’s Phoenix is 5th in the West, and Irving’s Dallas is 6th. If a rematch between the two teams (Dallas won 4-3) in the semifinals of the playoff Western Conference last season takes place, a picture of the two superstars eating together will unfold.
Russell Westbrook (35), who was traded from the LA Lakers to the Utah Jazz, also signed a contract with the LA Clippers. Westbrook, who was the MVP of the regular league, will leap again toward the championship trophy with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
