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

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.

According to many, this is nothing near a popularity stunt, but a legitimate decision for their basketball futures....Read More

Opening day is one of the best day’s of the year, and yesterday proved that with some great games! Here’s a recap of the day… Pitching- A total of 5 teams were shut out yesterday by great pitching and as a matter of fact, a bunch of pitchers had no hit bids going into late innings like Max Scherzer and Sonny Gray of the A’s! Suprises of the Day- My biggest surprise of the day was easily Bartolo Colón with an incredible effort for the big 41 year old. No Mets fans including me wanted Colón to start and...Read More
