The season is here!

The season is here!

Finally, after a couple of months, the season is here. After a summer of watching old clips, following free agency and the draft the NBA has a new landscape. And I’m very excited about it!

For me there are a couple of big storylines heading into this season:

Cavaliers – Celtics rivalry

There was already a very heated rivalry between these 2 teams and the Isaiah Thomas – Kyrie Irving trade has only spiced it up. Although Isaiah will not return until December or January, we got a first look of how these 2 teams actually look like in yesterday’s opener. Will Kyrie be the leader of this Celtics team or did he overplay his hand? How do all the new players on the Cavs roster perform and how long will everyone stay happy with all the roster shifts that has been made by coach Lue? Yesterday, we got the first chance to see how all decision and changes played out. Kyrie played a decent game, and the Cavs only won by three point, but it is too early in the season to draw a conclusion.

Teams with new looks

With a lot of free agents that changed teams, I am very eager to see how good some of these teams can be. I am thinking about the T-Wolves with Jimmy Butler, the Sixers with their core of young fantastic players and OKC with their new star trio. Are they actually that good that either of these teams can come out of their conference? I think they do! The 76-ers (if they mesh), can be the team of the future. In a very weak Eastern Conference, they have the potential to take away the crown of the Cavs in my opinion. The T-wolves with their mix of young superstars and veterans can have an immediately impact on this loaded Western Conference. And for OKC; they have such a big quick line up, they can score, the can defend every position and  I think they have the biggest chip on their shoulder, as a team this season to dethrone the GSW.

Allstar game

Finally they changed the format of the All-Star Game and we can actually see players play together that have never played together in a game before. If I think about the idea of Lebron James throwing a lob to KD, I’m definitely going to watch this year’s game.

Free agency this year

Although this season has barely started, next year’s free agency will be the buzz of this season. Where will Lebron go? Will Paul George leave OKC? These are just a few questions that pop up in my head. The entire season, these will be the primary questions that will surface in NBA talks and rumors. It can possibly reshape the NBA landscape once again, if certain players will change teams and conferences.  And that leads me to this question: how much will this year’s All-Star game affect player’s decision to leave? Let’s think about this: what if players that have never been on the same team, click very well during practices and during the game? Will that trigger their desire to play with each other? I think it might!

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
