Breaking Down the Anthony Davis Trade

Before I start rambling, this was a GREAT trade for both teams. You just have to put in in perspective. . . . The main reaction is that the Lakers gave up too much, and that’s mostly false. When you trade for a top five player, you’re going to have to give up a LOAD, and that’s what the Pelicans desired. Was it maybe a bit too much? You could argue that, but it’s still not the point. Let’s also not forget that the Lakers almost gave up WAY more during the trade deadline – so they should consider...

The Biggest Winner of the 2019 NBA Playoffs

  View this post on Instagram   One of – if not the biggest – topics of the current NBA postseason have been about the current best player in the world, and overall legacies. . . .

After the horrific loss, in addition to many other inexcusable losses in their recent stretch of six losses in their past eight games – it may be safe to count the Reds out from a Champions League return; the main goal.

My Thoughts on the V. A. R. Debate; Is it Ruining Football? Or is Getting the Call Right Always More Important?

  View this post on Instagram   After yesterday’s gut-wrenching Manchester City v Tottenham Champions League knockout match ended in a disallowed goal due to V. A. R., it only added fuel to the fire into the debate over the technology’s increasing use in football / soccer. . . . For context, “VAR” stands for Video Assistant Refereeing. In simpler terms for my non-football / soccer followers; it’s common replay review of controversial plays, like what we have in the four major sports. . . . There are two sides to this debate. The first are the traditionalist fans,...
