Why the Atlanta Hawks will make the playoffs this season
Atlanta Hawks are making it to the NBA playoffs this year. That simple. As long as no one sustains a major injury, the Atlanta Hawks have what it takes to crack into the 8th seed at least. Honestly, with their off-season pickups, they could finish as high as the 6th seed. Let me explain.
3 Reasons why you should think twice before getting a puppy.
So you're thinking about getting a dog huh? To go one step further, you want to get a puppy. Seeing puppies on commercials or seeing them as you walk past a stranger on street makes you realize just how cute or how adorable those little guys are. And that's true! I think they are cuter than newborn babies! Just like newborns, however, they are a lot of work that requires patience, maintenance, and a whole lot of patience! Before you think about snagging one of those guys from a pound or something, let me give you a few reasons (3) why you should take a little more time to think about your decision.
Lebron James won the two hardest championships... or did he (part 2)?
In case you missed the last episode, I touched on why I believe Lebron's 2016 NBA championship wasn't the first or second hardest championship in NBA history. This time around, I don't want to frame this opinion in the same way that I framed the last one. Since this championship is moreso fresh in our minds, I am not going to go through each opponent's record and key players as much as I did before. I don't want you to feel like your hearing the same exact thing twice. That's just repetitive and boring. Let's use a little more common sense and not as much technical stats because you can get that from any ESPN or Fox Sports kind of article. Having said this, I believe Lebron's 2020 NBA championship has a little more weight of being the hardest championship of all-time (or second), but I still think it's not.
Lebron James won the two hardest championships... or did he (part 1)?
Recently the 4-time NBA finals champion, Lebron James, made some interesting comments about his championships. During an episode of Road Trippin, Lebron James claims to have won the two hardest championships in NBA league history. The championships he's referring to are the 2016 and 2020 NBA championships. Lebron's quote was "The one thing that I know for sure is that I've been a part of two teams (that have) won the two hardest championships in NBA league history." I think we all can agree that what Lebron James accomplished in 2016 was magical in coming back from a 3-1 lead deficit. Also, what he and the Lakers was able to do this year due to the outside circumstances of COVID-19 and the BLM movement was certaintly amazing. In my opinion, I believe that the 2020 year NBA championship may have a case to be the hardest (although I believe it's weak), but the 2016 championship has very little weight for the hardest NBA championship in history.
Why Russell Westbrook can work in Washington.
Everyone in the sports world is well aware of the Houston Rockets trading Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for John Wall and a first-round pick. There's been talk from different sport shows about who won and lost the trade and does this trade even makes sense. Well, in my opinion, I believe the Wizards can benefit from gaining Russell Westbrook in a couple of different ways and even make it back to the playoffs. The NBA championship may be a different story with teams like the Milwaukee Bucks, Brooklyn Nets, Boston Celtics, and the Miami Heat being their competition. However, a superstar at the level of Russell can make the playoff birth of the Wizards a reality.
