December 6th #NarrativeStreet

Happy Birthday to one of the best young stars in the Association, The Greek Freek, Giannis Antetokounmpo turns 22 today.  22, think about that for a minute. The plethora of superstars in their early 20’s in the NBA might be unprecedented.  We wish the Bucks were on the slate tonight so we could celebrate with Giannis … he did drop 22 points last night on the eve of his 22nd for anyone keeping score on narratives.

Revenge Games

Joe Johnson & Boris Diaw (Suns @ Jazz) — Double Revenge narrative here, Diaw was traded to the Suns in ’05 for current Jazz teammate Joe Johnson. If these guys weren’t carrying their AARP cards, would be an exciting story tonight.

Marcin Gortat (Magic @ Wizards) — Gortat was drafted by the Magic in 2007, played a backup role behind Dwight Howard before being traded to the Suns in 2013 for a draft pick which would become Nikola Mirotic.

Derrick Williams (Knicks at Heat ) — Things got “awkward” after Williams left NY… it’s a gross play we know, but Heat are thin tonight.

Lastly, Zebo returns to the Griz tonight following bereavement for the passing of his mother. RIP.

Let us know what we missed by following us @nbanarratives — Thank you!
