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
I think it’s time to break down one of the most common misunderstandings in sports: WHY the Golden State Warriors are so good. . . . . . Don’t get me wrong, I am totally aware that they have five all-stars and are better than any team on paper by miles – yet there’s a much bigger reason why they are so successful. . . . This team is doing something that has been UNHEARD of for teams composed of an abundance of superstars in the past few decades, which is playing as a TEAM. . . . Yes,...Read More
After another hectic offseason, the 2018/19 season is underway tonight! Here’s a quick preview with my insight on each team! _____________ EASTERN CONFERENCE: . . . . . • I think Kawhi will be fine for TOR, and they’ll retain a top-two seed.

Call me crazy, but their style and...Read More
After seven weeks genuinely disconnected from the world of sports and social media, I’m finally all caught up and ready to return to the Instagram grind. But first though, I’d like to provide my reaction to the biggest headlines of Summer 2018. . . . NBA: Starting with the Awards, I was very disappointed to find out LeBron was robbed of MVP by Harden. I may work on a story later on voicing my take on the value of MVP awards in sports. Simmons was very deserving of ROY and I don’t want to hear the “he’s not a...Read More
If I had to describe last night’s draft in one word it would be conservative. Almost every pick was a low-risk one that filled an evident team need. With that, here’s my overall reaction of the 2018 NBA Draft. . . . . . PG’s: I really liked Dallas’ move to trade up for Doncic considering how beneficial Dirk can be for him in his transition to the NBA, which was the biggest factor holding him back in any way. Trae Young also enters a team with a clear cut opportunity to be the star just as he did...Read More
