Kobi Simmons may be out of the NBA, but he’s definitely not out of his depth with his humor. He trolled LeBron James and James Harden at the same time.
James Harden sealed a trade to the Brooklyn Nets this afternoon. The news has shaken up the NBA landscape, with over 20 players tweeting in reaction.
League is crazy right now #NBA

But undoubtedly the quote of the day belonged to Kobi Simmons. The former Hornets guard insinuated that LeBron James sealed this trade with his look-away 3-pointer last night.
Brons no look jumper put the stamp on the trade 🤣🤣

How will James Harden line up in Brooklyn
The Nets sacrificed their future to supercharge their offense even further. This is the first time in NBA history that 3 players to have averaged 25 points per game during the same season are traded to the same team.
Steve Nash and Mike D’Antoni will have the problem every coach loves to have – the problem of plenty. But they will also have the unenviable task of figuring their defense out. They lost their best defender to Cleveland. DeAndre Jordan cannot be expected to hang for 40 minutes a night in the playoffs.
Despite this, the season will be a must-watch. Joe Harris might end up getting the most open looks a great shooter has gotten in history. The Nets will end up scoring 100 every night if they take the game half-seriously.
