The All Mighty successfully defended the United States Championship versus Theory at SummerSlam on Saturday. After triumphing, Lashley will face Ciampa to defend his title.
Meanwhile, NBA star Dwight Howard recently went to Nashville for the SummerSlam weekend WWE auditions. The former Los Angeles Lakers great has made it clear that he wants to fight and succeed in the championship.
During a recent trip to The Masked Man Show on The Ringer, Bobby Lashley cautioned Howard. He vowed that despite the NBA star’s height, he wouldn’t scare him and that he would “cut” him in half. “
If he enters the ring, I’ll slice him in half and spear him. He has a huge appearance.
KD’s action suggested that he wanted to get away from both the Nets and Kyrie Irving.
Bayless concurs with Mike James’ assessment of Durant. According to reports, Durant “knew” that the team had lost to Boston. During their series versus Boston, Brooklyn was unable to claim a single victory.
Both Durant and Irving lacked toughness throughout the series. Before the series, Bayless’ prediction that the two players will “splitsville” seems feasible.
The two were thought to be the league’s deadliest tandem. The pairing has thus far been a huge letdown. Only 44 games have been played between Irving and Durant since their 2019 season began in Brooklyn. The chemistry was never given the chance to grow.
It appears like Durant wants some separation from Irving going forward. Regardless of what happens in the upcoming season, Irving has indicated a desire in sticking in Brooklyn.
The Lakers-Nets deals, however, continue to make news. Lakers supporters have imagined and planned for a trade of Russell Westbrook for Kyrie Irving ever since the offseason began.
KD wants to leave Brooklyn, but he wants more. After Irving chooses to participate, Durant can indicate that he wants to separate from Irving by asking for a trade. The superstar missed the majority of the season due to personal vaccine decisions and injury struggles.
Whatever his motivations, Durant does appear to want to leave Brooklyn behind.
The team, led by Steve Nash, is still counting on KD to fetch a high price. Durant, however, seems most likely to stay in Brooklyn.
