Grading The Biggest NBA Trades

Grading The Biggest NBA Trades

What NBA team won the trade deadline


The NBA trade deadline has left as fast as it has come. A lot of players packed their bags and moved cities. Now comes where every fan gradeS everyNBA trade. Now that's exactly what I plan on doing.

Boogie to NOLA.

The superstar trade of the deadline was easily this one. New Orlean's basketball scene was dying down because of the lack Anthony Davis was getting around him. The Pelicans now easily have the most powerful, skillful, and scary in the whole league. It helps that the Kings were in a giving mood because they didn't get back in the trade. The fact that the general manager of the Kings said that Buddy Heild has the potential to be better then Curry shows that he has the ability to say stupid things and make bad trades.

Pelicans: A

Kings: D-

Chicago with a bull trade

Man, what a steal by the Thunder. The Bulls biggest issue this season is three pointers and the best three point shooter on their team was Dougie McBuckets. They let him get traded to the Thunder for another point guard who can't shoot threes. The Thunder were high on Payne and believe he has starting point guard potential. They didn't want to hinder his development and grabbed an amazing shooter for the 3 pointer league we are living in. Just an another example of the Bulls making bullsh*t decisions.

Thunder : A

Bulls: F-

Raptors making it splash

Don't sleep on these raptors. Ibaka may have had his best days behind him but behind the star power of Derozan and Lowry he could be a solid third or fourth scoring option and an anchor on defense. Not to forgot that PJ Tucker who is a very good wing player is now on the roster. He is good enough to start or be a sixth man for the raptors. Don't be surprised if the raptors are fighting for a number one spot in the east after a very successful NBA trade deadline.

Raptors: A+

Everyone else: Watch out for Dem Raptors

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
