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...Read More
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. . . . While it is a fun debate, it’s completely fueled by “recency bias”, which explains the constant shuffling, and lack of consistency in consensus opinion. . . . So I want to look at the bigger picture today, and not focus on my perception of the last few games. I think if anyone rose to the top in terms of best player, or...Read More
Throughout the now concluding NFL season, and ongoing NBA season; sports fans have gotten a heavy dose of Baker Mayfield and Luka Doncic coverage when it comes to rookie stars. Both are absolute STUDS and already two of my favorite athletes in sports! . . . Yet, there are two rookies who have been absolutely SURGING as of late (December to be exact!) and reviving their NY squads in dire need of a star. . . . For the Knicks, Kevin Knox has put on a show as of late proving to be an amazing scorer despite being the...Read More
Knicks fans, time to use some logic. . . . Despite the putrid offensive showings as of late by Frank Ntilikina – former French-born first rounder Guard – there is ZERO reason to urgently trade him away! . . . First and foremost, Frank is only TWENTY years old, a lottery pick, and an international player on top of that. It’s not rare to see struggles like this happening to a player with that background. . . . Secondly, we’ve seen his huge potential constantly on the court. It’s not like we don’t know what he’s capable of –...Read More
For the first “Takes of the Day” segment, we’re going over Big Ben’s texts to Bell, the misconceptions with Lillard, the Warriors controversy and Melo. Please read the attached quotes as they’ll help understand my points, and comment your takes below! . . . . . 1.) Concerning Big Ben’s texts to Le’Veon about coming back to the team, I really think Bell ignoring them was another example of why I would NEVER sign him this offseason as a F/A. The guy is just a flat out self-centered a-hole. Don’t want a guy like that on a rebuilding squad....Read More
