NBA players react to Day 2 of 2015 free agency on twitter

Day 2 of the 2015 free agency period wasn’t quite as crazy as Day 1, but plenty of players looking for new homes (or old) were still on the move and locking themselves up with teams for years to come. Unless you were Dwyane Wade, of course, who agreed to a one-year deal worth $20 million to stay with the Miami Heat. In most cases, though, free agents have agreed to multi-year deals including the following: Damian Lillard – five-year, $125 million contract with

The golden age for NBA players wasn’t supposed to arrive before 2016 when the new TV deal would kick in, but it has clearly arrived early enough for the free agents of 2015.

Curry put a silence to that talk on Sunday night in the Oracle Arena, putting up 37 points on 13-of-23 shooting from the field, including 7-of-13 from the arc, seven rebounds, four assists and two steals. The point guard was absolutely spectacular

The Golden State Warriors had plenty of questions heading into Game 4, and answered just about all of it with the most convincing win of the NBA Finals, defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-82 to tie the series at 2-2. With LeBron James utterly dominating the first three games, Steve Kerr decided to throw a healthy dose of double teams this time.

Tweet of the Night: Magic Johnson has strong praise for LeBron James and explains Warriors’ issues

Magic Johnson

Through the first three games of the NBA Finals, we’ve learned some things about both the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. For one, LeBron James remains the very best the league has to offer and can single-handedly crush all your hopes and dreams. We’re also learning that you can never count out a team that has made it to the Finals, no matter how underhanded they seem, and all of it can be so unexpectedly overwhelming if you’ve never been
