Philadelphia 76ers fans who appreciate betting on basketball SBG Global sportsbook should be pretty happy that their team selected Australian Ben Simmons as the first pick in the first round of the 2016 NBA draft… or should they? According to NBA.com's Draft expert Scott Howard-Cooper, the more mature Brandon Ingram was the versatile scorer that the 76ers could have used after finishing 30th in offense in the league (96.6 points per 100 possessions). Additionally, Philadelphia picked French Timothe Luwawu (24th) and Turkish Furkan Korkmaz (26th), though Howard-Cooper predicted at least one of those picks would be traded or spent on a player who will stay overseas.
Fans of the Oklahoma City Thunder who enjoy betting on basketball at SBG Global sportsbook are hoping that the team’s 2016-17 season will be just like Darkman II and features the Return of Durant. Only in this case it will not be ruthless, sadistic mob boss Robert G. Durant but All Star small forward Kevin Durant. Along with Russell Westbrook, the Thunder has the most dominant duo in the league – though LeBron James and Kyrie Irving might take offense to that (while Kevin Love hides inside a locker so he doesn’t get traded). Steph Curry and Klay Thompson might take offense too, but then they would have lost all touch with reality.
The Cleveland Cavaliers do not have pick in the first or second round of the 2016 NBA draft – having traded the former to the Boston Celtics (who in turn traded it to the Phoenix Suns) and the latter also to the Celtics. Which prompts fans of betting on basketball to wonder whether the brand new NBA champions need one. The higher-ups at Cleveland should be more concerned about retaining the services of Finals MVP LeBron James, who is a free agent with a $24 million player option – which grants James the power to decide if he wants to stay for another year or become a completely unrestricted free agent.
Following a devastating loss in game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals to eventual champions the Cleveland Cavaliers, league MVP and Golden State Warriors stalwart Stephen Curry said they will “keep this memory so that it will fuel us as we stay together as a team,” because they will be back on this stage.
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers defied betting on basketball odds and made history last night, winning game 7 of the NBA Finals 93-89 to become the first team to come back from a 1-3 disadvantage – and winning the first major sports trophy for the Forest City in a exactly a gazillion years. And they did all of the above while facing the best regular season team in the history of the NBA. SBG Global sportsbook salutes the 2016 NBA champions. Game 7 of the championship series kept an entire country entranced – even president Barack Obama stopped doing whatever presidents do to watch the final minutes of the postseason.
