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
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.

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.

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
Commissioners Goodell and Silver, how in the world did you mess this up too? The Pro Bowl and NBA All-Star games are absolute disasters that could be easily fixed with some common sense from the men in charge. 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
