Charles Barkley Is On The Ball

Charles Barkley Is On The Ball

That's what he said. Steph Curry has won a couple MVPs, he's pretty good. That's that AAU s-t. Throughout the season, Lonzo has averaged 14.9 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 7.8 APG while being names to the First Team All American. Those numbers are certainly worthy of consideration as a top draft pick, but it's LaVar who may get in his son's way of making that happen. "It's not a one-on-one sport, but if it is one-on-one, I'm going to take the taller, faster, stronger guy". Read More

Wagner, however, got the reward for persisting with his short-ball tactics as he dismissed the centurion to open the doors for New Zealand's comeback. Read More
