At first glance, when you see the Portland Trail Blazers, you think of a great Western Conference team led by a superstar, Damian Lillard and another all-star calibre player in CJ McCollum. This is the team that went to the Western Conference Finals last year and have consistently made the playoffs the past decade. But right now, at the All-star break, they sit with a losing record. What is going on?
With injuries, a potential send-off and disallowing of two goals, this game was a nightmare for the Blues. This was a tough controversial match called by referee Anthony Taylor, who has had his name mentioned in many controversial calls.

We are nearing the end of 2019 and the Utah Jazz are currently sitting at 20-12, good for 6th place in the West. Honestly, this year has not been what I had expected for the Jazz. Lots of ups and downs with the team, but in general, I am satisfied and believe that if the Jazz can keep it up, they have a shot of making the Western Conference Finals. Let's take a look at what this year has been like.
I don't know if you guys have ever played KOTOR, but this game by far out-shines any game I have ever played. This game lets you make choices that determine the story, and there are endless possibilities. Even though this game came out ages ago, it still beats most games made today. BioWare is an absolute genius at making video games. They made KOTOR, Dragon Age and Mass Effect. I absolutely love all of these games, but it all started with KOTOR for me. I remember getting an original Xbox for my seventh birthday, and the first game I got was KOTOR. Being a seven-year old, this game was frustratingly difficult because my tiny little mind couldn't comprehend how customizable it was. But I loved Star Wars, so I kept playing and playing, and as time went on, I got the hang of it. And to this day, I've replayed and beaten that game over a dozen times.
Kneeling during the "National Anthem." Now this is one of the most controversial topics widespread across our country today. It all started back when 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick decided he wasn't going to stand for the anthem to protest civil injustice and it quickly spread across the NFL. So much of politics, economics, and society has been influenced by this movement. Now I'm not here to tell you why you should stand for the anthem. Nor am I here to tell you why you should kneel. But I'm here to voice my opinion on what you should do. And it is simply put like this, do what you feel is right, and allow others to do the same. Honestly, if everyone did this, there wouldn't be so much hate.
