Maybe he knew this was coming all along! A few months ago, we all laughed at LaVar Ball’s outlandish plan to launch a league named the JBA (Junior Basketball Association) for players coming out of High School, looking to go pro as soon as possible. The perk of Lavar’s league was that the players not interested in an education could skip the one-and-done year of collegiate ball, and get PAID in Lavar’s league – something that the NCAA does not provide. Now following the recent terrible allegations from the FBI exposing colleges of paying players to commit to their...Read More
In an interview during All-Star Weekend, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver spoke about the possibility of a new playoff seeding format where instead of the top 8 teams from each conference making the postseason, the 16 best teams in the league make it seeded in order of best record. This is far from an outrageous or league altering change, and if anything – it could benefit the league. The obvious reason would be to assure that the best 16 would always compete for the title, eliminating the ongoing controversy of how overpowered the West is compared to the East. But...Read More
The moves may not have been ‘flashy’, but the Cavs absolutely nailed the trade deadline today. Coming into today’s deadline, we all expected Cleveland to make some sort of a ‘splash’ acquisition to supplement LeBron James, but they did the opposite – and the RIGHT thing. The Cavaliers acquired PG Jordan Clarkson, F Larry Nance Jr., PG George Hill, SF/SF Rodney Hood, and a 2nd RD selection today in three separate trades, while letting go of PG Isaiah Thomas, F Channing Frye, SG Iman Shumpert, PG Derrick Rose, SF Jae Crowder, SG Dwayne Wade, and THEIR 2018 1st RD...Read More

I mean seriously, your task is to put out a watchable product with the world’s best players in your respective sport, and you somehow find a way to screw it up with some new non-sense year after year. It’s simple. There are so many points to touch on regarding this commonly debated topic, and well get through...Read More
It’s official. Big Baller Brand has landed in Lithuania, as former UCLA freshman Liangelo Ball, and Chino Hills HS dropout Lamelo Ball, will debut for the Lithuanian squad Vytautas as early as January 13th. The news broke out nearly a month ago that both would head to Europe to play professionally for the same team. This came as a shocker for fans everywhere, as the move to Lithuania was completely out of nowhere. But father LaVar Ball put his foot down and made the bold decision. It’s expected that both will ease into larger minutes with the team over time. According to many, this is nothing near a popularity stunt, but a legitimate decision for their basketball futures....Read More
