    Getty Patty Mills #8 talks with Kyrie Irving #11 of the Brooklyn Nets during the first half against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Barclays Center It’s no secret that the Brooklyn Nets underachieved last season. They have possibly the best superstar duo in the NBA with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, and the two have still yet to play for an NBA Championship. So far, the team has been a disappointment and had constant drama. One of the takeaways amidst all the drama for the team last year is that they were lacking team chemistry and comradery.  How could the team have comradery thought? Irving missed over 50 games with his decision not to get the COVID-19 vaccine, James Harden demanded a trade, and that left Kevin Durant isolated at times on the Nets lineup. Patty Mills joined the Nets as a veteran leader to help bring added championship experience to Brooklyn. He recently spoke to the New York Post about the differences in teen Chemistry on this years squad stating that it was “night and day different feeling”...
    During his marathon seven-week libel trial in Fairfax, Virginia, this spring, Johnny Depp was a creature of habit. He would arrive every morning in a large grey SUV with loud reggae music pumping, and exit waving to fans while carrying a notebook and briefcase. In his wake would follow three bodyguards who had been in the car with him — plus a petite and elegant brunette, Joelle Rich. Rich, a 37-year-old married, privately educated London lawyer and mother of two, stayed a few careful paces away from the client at all times. She would then typically join his packed benches of supporters — sitting across from Amber Heard's team, as the sordid and prurient details of the libel trial, brought by Depp against his ex wife, were spilled out. In the evenings, with Johnny, 59, ensconced in the presidential suite at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in McLean, Rich would be among those joining him for nightly dinners at the nearby Palm steakhouse. The Depp party would spend thousands every night on meals which always featured chicken parmigiana and plenty of the best...
    Getty Former Celtics player Danny Ainge waves before the Celtics home opener. Danny Ainge has an extensive history with the Boston Celtics. He played for the team from 1981 to 1989, then went on to be President of Basketball of Operations for the team from 2003 to 2021. During those eras, Ainge won two championships as a player and constructed a team that won a title, made two NBA Finals, and made six Eastern Conference Finals as an executive. A Western Conference executive gave his opinion on why Ainge was a successful executive during his time with the Celtics compared to others. “I think with Danny, there are very few guys out there who think about chemistry as much when they are putting together a team. I mean, he had talented teams with (Paul) Pierce and Antoine (Walker) that did not get very far. And he had one of the teams that had the best chemistry in the last couple of decades with that (2008) Boston team. You can feel the difference with your stars, with your role...
    Getty Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics. As the Boston Celtics gear up for another title run next season, they’ve made some key additions to the roster this summer. Brad Stevens did not hesitate to improve the team’s depth, signing forward Danilo Gallinari in free agency and making a trade for guard Malcolm Brogdon. However, as great as it is to have a ton of talent in the lineup, team chemistry is just as important. Most of Boston’s key rotational pieces should be back next season. That includes Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, Al Horford, and others. That being said, recent reports indicate that Boston’s core could look drastically different next year. With rumors swirling that they could trade for Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, their core may be altered sooner rather than later. During his basketball camp, with trade rumblings cluttering the NBA atmosphere, Tatum spoke to reporters, stressing just how close the current Celtics team has become. “We have a great group of guys, guys that play well together, and that we almost won a...
    Getty Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics Ever since rumors surfaced about the Boston Celtics showing interest in trading for Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets, there have been some concerns about what the team chemistry will be like once the new season gets underway. However, when speaking to the media at his basketball camp on July 30, All-Star wing Jayson Tatum moved to ease those concerns, as he revealed all of the Celtics players have remained in contact since their season ended after losing the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors. “We’ve all been in contact, just checking in on each other, see how they’re doing. Everybody is traveling with their family and stuff right now, but probably next month, guys will start getting back in the gym. Some of us might be in LA together and we’ll work out, stuff like that…Chemistry is half the battle. I feel like you can have a great team with great talent, and not necessarily gel together. You guys saw we figured it out in January and never looked back…It’s a...
    ​Standing on the field, addressing the crowd after the Giants clinched the NL West, manager Gabe Kapler sought to explain how a team projected to win 72-75 games had won 107. He cited his players, of course, and his coaching staff.  And then the man who was hired for his fluency in analytics revealed his appreciation for the unquantifiable value of clubhouse chemistry. “At the beginning of the season,” he said, “dating back to spring training and what the expectations were and what the industry thought of us as a club, what I realize is there are some intangibles that those projections and viewpoints failed to take into consideration.” Joan Ryan was among those in attendance last Sunday. Ryan wrote the book on intangibles and then watched the Giants prove her point. “Intangibles — Unlocking the Science and Soul of Team Chemistry” was published in April, a 10-year project that went into print just as the Giants were getting started on the season that would shock the baseball world. “So much of it is the culture...
    The matchup is set. The Giants and Dodgers will meet in the National League Division Series starting Friday at Oracle Park. The Giants will enter the game with a week of rest. The Dodgers, one day following an incredible Wild Card Game win over the Cardinals. Before the matchup was set, I talked to Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski in the San Francisco dugout about the team’s chemistry, its manager, Friday night’s starter Logan Webb, and the moment that this squad knew that they could not only play with the Dodgers but beat them, too. Here are the five best answers from our conversation. You guys win the National League West with 107 wins — just an astronomically successful season. But even more than that, you hold off the Dodgers for weeks, months. They were breathing down your neck and — they won 106, a team that everyone expected to be that good — you hold them off. What does that, what does that say about this team? What does that mean for you guys going...
    Getty Kevin Durant and James Harden at the State Farm Arena. Brooklyn Nets All-Star James Harden had a disappointing end to his 2021 playoff run. After being acquired by Brooklyn from the Houston Rockets in a blockbuster trade in January, Harden and the Nets were widely viewed as the favorites to win the 2021 NBA title. But a hamstring injury to Harden in the opening minutes of their second-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks compromised his play in the series which they lost in 7 games. But this year Harden is back and healthy. And he and the rest of the Nets veterans are looking to get back into game shape. “Yeah, and I’ve been doing individual workouts and conditioning and things like that. But five-on-five competition is totally different than working out individually. So, the more we can get five-on-five games and build our conditioning up. And not just myself, our entire team. … I feel like we’re behind a little in [that] sense,” Harden said per Brian Lewis of the “New York Post.” “We haven’t let...
    New York Giants: Kenny Golladay on recovery, chemistry with offense Cay North September 2, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit It’s safe to say a fair amount of the hopes for the New York Giants offense rest on Kenny Golladay. Golladay is the team’s highest profile free agent, and the most visible part of the organization’s plan to focus on offensive weapons this offseason. The Giants prioritized bringing Golladay in over improving other areas such as the offensive line, and that decision will be judged in part by how Golladay plays in his debut season with the team. Golladay and the Giants are unfortunately facing a challenge in that plan, however. Golladay is injured right now, and it’s unclear if he’ll be back in time for week 1. Despite that, the receiver has seemingly kept a hopeful outlook and is positive about his time with the franchise so far. Golladay speaks on return to practice Golladay, along with Saquon Barkley, is one of the Giants players...
    Getty Kyle Kuzma of the Los Angeles Lakers. Kyle Kuzma is not holding back about the Los Angeles Lakers’ struggles this season. Kuzma averaged just 6.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in the Lakers’ first-round playoff loss against the Suns. During an interview with Bleacher Report’s Tyler Conway, Kuzma noted he sees himself as a player who can become an All-Star but cited his “inconsistent role” as part of the reason for his struggles this season. “I definitely can,” Kuzma noted. “I definitely believe that, too. I don’t really care what nobody thinks or says. I know myself, and I know my ability. It’s hard to be consistent in an inconsistent role. I’m excited for a more consistent space next year.” Kuzma averaged 21.6 minutes in the playoffs, well below his season average of 28.7 per contest. He expanded on why he believes a “consistent role” will help his game reach the next level. “My biggest thing is I just want to play within a consistent role,” Kuzma explained. “If I have that ability, I’ll...
    Getty Kyle Kuzma with Marc Gasol. This season didn’t end how it was supposed to for the Los Angeles Lakers. Coming off a championship, many expected the team to compete for a title once again. For a while, it looked like they would. The Lakers started off 21-6 and looked like the best team in the NBA. Unfortunately, injuries started piling up. Both Anthony Davis and LeBron James missed significant time and dropped from the top seed in the Western Conference to the seventh. That led to them being matched up with the Phoenix Suns in the first round in the playoffs. The Lakers held a 2-1 lead on them before Davis got hurt again and the team ended up losing the next three games. The Suns are now in the NBA Finals while Los Angeles watches from home. Kyle Kuzma recently had a chance to talk about what made Phoenix have a special season and dropped some insight on why the Lakers struggled. “When we played them, I think the biggest thing that stood out was they...
    Getty Dennis Schroder, Lakers Back in December, the Lakers did the best they could in terms of offering an extension for newly acquired guard Dennis Schroder, a two-year, $33.4 million contract that was built on a 5% raise from the final year of his current deal ($15.5 million). Schroder turned down that offer, but only because he will have an opportunity to reap a bigger contract extension next month—not because he wants to bolt from the Lakers after this season. In fact, this week, Schroder reiterated he desire to stay with the Lakers, who pulled off a trade to bring him to L.A. in November, sending out a draft pick and guard Danny Green.

That’s the reason why I think I want to be...

    The Los Angeles Lakers prepare for their first scrimmage that will take place on the upcoming Thursday against the Dallas Mavericks. The Purple and Gold team have two new members whom the fans are waiting to watch: J. R. Smith and Dion Waiters. While the duo has been in the league for a long time, this will be their first stint with the Lakers. And head coach Frank Vogel recently revealed what they bring to the roster. What the Los Angeles Lakers newbies have to offer, according to Frank Vogel An NBA team needs to have talent, dedication and a massive amount of team spirit to succeed. However, it seems the Los Angeles Lakers roster has a couple of things more to offer than your routine franchise. Recently, head coach Frank Vogel talked to the media about the same.     A reporter asked Vogel what he felt J. R. Smith and Dion Waiters, the latest additions to the Lakers roster, bring to the team, “in terms of chemistry.” Vogel said, “They both bring toughness and swag. You know,...
    The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the nine teams from the Eastern Conference that will be entering the NBA’s Orlando Bubble next month. The 76ers stand sixth in their conference table, with a record of 39-26. But it wasn’t always a smooth ride for the team in the current season. The Philly franchise had to struggle with developing a good chemistry among the team, as revealed by Tobias Harris.  Philadelphia 76ers are an extremely talented team. Their roster is filled with good players and their opponents have every reason to fear them. Hall of Famer Charles Barkley even stated that the 76ers are a very scary team. Recently, Tobias Harris, the team’s forward, joined ESPN’s First Take where he frankly admitted about the team’s worries at the beginning of the season. Here is what Harris had to say.  Harris says the Philadelphia 76ers lacked chemistry within the team Having such a genuinely skilled roster, one can even expect the 76ers to reach the Finals this season. But it wasn’t smooth sailing from the beginning. Here is an explanation by Tobias...
