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
As we approach the NBA Draft Lottery in 15 minutes, I need to get a quick point out to watch for. I strongly believe the Draft Lottery is, and has been fixed for a long time and there’s too much evidence to prove that from the insane odds big market teams overcame to get a top pick, to falling small market teams, to the Frozen Envelope conspiracy and of course, the pure fact that the process of the ping pong balls determining the picks ISN’T EVEN TELEVISED! Regardless, I strongly believe that tonight’s lotto will either calm down my...Read More
Knicks fans, we may have finally found our savior. Yesterday, the Knicks hired former Heat AC, and Grizzlies HC David Fizdale to a four year deal to become their new head coach, and I love the move. First of all, if there is anyone who won’t fall under the pressure of coaching in New York, it’s Fiz. This man has more confidence and fire than almost any coach I’ve ever seen, and it’s displayed on and off the court. This again is crucial to coaching in New York as coaches and players are literally crumbled from the pressure year...Read More
While this seemingly never-ending Kawhi Leonard drama continues to confuse the whole basketball world, I think the reasoning behind the whole debacle is rather simple. Kawhi isn’t still hurt, Kawhi isn’t even scared to get hurt again; he just doesn’t want to be there. I saw a very interesting comparison the other day that compared the inside atmosphere of the New England Patriots to the San Antonio Spurs and I couldn’t have agreed more. Both organizations are lead by head coaches (Belichick and Popovich) who’s hidden tactics and lack of flashiness have proved to be more successful than any...Read More
