It looks like the east coast is gunning for LeBron. The Brooklyn Nets have assembled a team that might actually stand a chance against the Lakers.
On Thursday, it was announced that shooting guard James Harden was traded from the Houston Rockets to the Brooklyn Nets. There, he'll be joining Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Ever heard of them?
ESPN reports that Harden's move was part of a four-team trade that also involved the Pacers and Cavaliers. Houston received a package with multiple players and draft picks. Guard Caris LeVert was then traded to the Pacers for Victor Oladipo. Wait, there's more.
Center Jarrett Allen and forward Taurean Prince are joining the Cavs guard Dante Exum is going from Cleveland to Houston along with Brooklyn forward Rodions Kurucs.
Lotta big moves all at once, but most people are focused on James Harden, who was supposedly unhappy in Houston. Will he be unhappy with the Nets? Maybe if this is true:
Reactions from NBA fans are mostly focused on LeBron, who many seem to think will be able to fight off the triumvirate of Harden, Durant, and Irving. The rest of the reactions are about how so much has been upended in just a day, including player's expectations of where they'll be ranking on their teams. Enjoy:
