#FM Sports: A Bandwagon Grows in Brooklyn and Los Angeles

Incoming Bandwagon Alert as Clippers and Nets Win Free Agency

New York has always been a Knicks town. LA has always bleed purple and gold. Don’t look now, Times are a changing. The Knicks were linked to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving all season. The pair inked 4 year contracts with the Brooklyn Nets and bought their friend, Center DeAndre Jordan along with them. The Lakers thought Kawhi Leonard was coming to join LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Kyle Kuzma. Analysts had Kawhi going to either the Lakers or Raptors. Early Saturday morning, the world discovered that only did Leonard sign with the Clippers, but Clip City traded for All-Star swingman Paul George.  That move had the bandwagon fans jumping ship.

Bandwagon Beware!!

Brooklyn did sign Kevin  Durant, but he will miss the entire 2019-2020 season recovering from a Ruptured Achilles. Kyrie Irving put up good numbers with the Boston Celtics, but the team regressed and he was responsible for the fractured locker room in Bean Town. Both Irving and Durant are all world NBA players, but could be difficult to deal with. The Million Dollar Question is can the hyper sensitive Durant and the moody Irving coexist and survive in New York City. Will Durant be the same after a career altering injury?

Bandwagon Hot Take: Are the Clippers the New Kings of LA?

The Los Angeles Clippers are stacked. Last season, they traded their best player in Tobias Harris and still made the playoffs. They took the Warriors to 6 games without a true superstar. Now they have 2. In addition to George and Leonard, they have 6th Man of the year in Lou Williams. They also have Patrick Beverly at point guard a 1st Team All Defense winner. Montrez Harrell brings attitude and energy off the bench. With PG, The Klaw, Pat Bev and Harrell, the Clippers will frustrate the opposition with their defense.
