Frank Vogel: Lakers may start Dwight Howard in Game 2

  Frank Vogel: Lakers may start Dwight Howard in Game 2 Howard proved to be a difference-maker in Game 1, posting 13 points, three rebounds and two blocks in just 16 minutes. The reasoning makes sense. Howard is a vertical threat who makes life difficult for Nikola Jokic with his rolls to the rim. On the other end, he is also a slightly more disciplined and versatile defender than McGee is.Howard admitted he had a hard time with his limited minutes last series. Now however, it looks like he could really be getting his moment to shine.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Waiters will be getting an NBA Championship ring, regardless of who actually wins the series. Circumstance has brought him to this moment, and it’s the best scenario for a player. Waiters signed a contract with the Lakers on March 6 and has been with the team in the bubble. He started the season with (you guessed it) the Miami Heat.

Dion Waiters is getting a ring even if the Lakers lose in the NBA Finals . While there’s a lot at stake for all of those players, there’s one person involved in the NBA Finals who will benefit Dion Waiters could make more money due to NBA Finals . Waiters is already set to receive a postseason bonus

Dion Waiters Guaranteed a Ring Even if Lakers Lose the 2020 NBA Finals : The Lakers SF could also receive playoff money from the Miami Heat. According to reports, Waiters is in this lucky scenario because he played for both the Miami Heat and the Lakers — the two teams currently facing off in the

So, in the eyes of the league he was a part of both the Heat and Lakers this season, thereby guaranteeing him a ring no matter what. There’s also a chance he could get double-paid as well. Every NBA player who is a part of the playoffs earns a portion of a stipend pool set aside as a reward for making the postseason. Part of this money is set aside for ancillary team staff, and players who are no longer with the team. The idea being that integral people to a team’s success could still be rewarded, even if business shipped them somewhere else.

JORDI FERNANDEZ et al. posing for the camera: Iconic buzzer-beating game-winner aside, Anthony Davis has been this postseason's player according to a few trustworthy advanced metrics, including Win Shares (2.8) and Win Shares per 48 Minutes (0.287).  It's easy to see why the advanced states rate the Kentucky product so favorably, too, as Davis is averaging 28.5 points, 10.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.3 blocks per contest with an effective field-goal percentage of 59.6.  What's more, how could we not talk about Davis' Game-2 game-winner, where he sank the Denver Nuggets' comeback hopes with this silky-smooth outside jumper from the wing:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJOkrA3VB7c&ab_channel=BleacherReport  If the Lakers do go on to win this year's title, it'll go down as one of the biggest shots in L.A. franchise history. It might already deserve that distinction anyway.

Now, it’s uncertain Heat players will vote to give Waiters part of this pool — but there is a possibility. I choose to believe they will, just because it’s so much better that way. The idea that Waiters could earn a ring no matter what, and get paid by both teams in the NBA Finals is the kind of dream we should all get behind.

Dion Waiters is re-signing with the Heat: And he’ll be getting paid million over four years, which is quite the vote of confidence for a player who , at this time last year The Clippers are also reportedly in talks with Milos Teodosic, arguably the top European guard who has never made the jump to the NBA .

Sure, as a kid you might have imagined hitting the winning shot in Game 7 to bring your team a title, but for my money there is nothing better than putting yourself in a position to win a ring no matter what, and get paid by both teams. Winning by default is the true sign of greatness. If I was an NBA player I’d try to find a way to play for every team, at least once in my career, just to hedge my bets and get a ring.

In fact, this is my open plea to the National Basketball Association: I would like a 2021 NBA Championship ring. I don’t think this is asking for much. Here’s my proposal:

  • Each team signs me to a 1 day, $1 contract. We can get this all over with during training camp.
  • Just cut me for conduct detrimental to the team or some other excuse. Signing a writer to a contract is detrimental to the team in its own right, so you have a built in excuse.
  • After I receive my NBA championship ring from whichever team wins the title next year, I’ll make a $1,000 donation to a charity of the winning team’s choice.

Everyone wins! Especially me.
