Mack Prioleau NBA Update
Today we are going to be talking about what has happened this past week in the N.B.A. This has been a big week for sports, we currently have the N.F.F draft going on but we have seen some big developments in the N.B.A as well. First off, let’s talk about the team that was easily the favorite to repeat as world champions of the world until a recent development. You have probably heard by now but Step Curry is out for the foreseeable future. After injuring his ankle in game 1 of the series against the Houston Rockets, it looks as if he slipped on the wet spot on the floor in game four and injured his knee. The scary part is that the team did not say he would be back in two weeks, they said they would reevaluate his knee with in two weeks. Which means he is most likely out until the N.B.A finals at the earliest if they are lucky to make it. They would currently play the winner of the Portland Trailblazers and Los Angeles Clippers which is a perfect segue way to our next topic. The Clippers, a team that seem can never catch a break. With the M.V.P from the last two seasons of the league injured and a lead in their current series, it seemed as the Clippers had a great chance to make the Western Conference Final. Not less then a day later news comes out that their two best players in Chris Paul and Blake Griffin were injured and would be out for the rest of the playoffs. Of course injuries are just part of the game and something all teams have to deal with. But this was their best chance in the history of their franchise to make the conference finals and they do not even get a day to rejoice in this, as always it seems that dreams in Clipperland get dashed before they can ever come true.
