What the OBJ Trade Means for the Browns and Giants
The NFL off season has brought a flurry of drama. From teams signing and trading key players to Antonio Brown's exit from Pittsburgh, we haven't experienced a free agent and trade frenzy like this in quite some time in the NFL.
Zach LaVine Has Arrived in the NBA
The Chicago Bulls and their fans haven't had much to cheer for this NBA season. They fired their head coach Fred Hoiberg early in the season, they sit near the bottom of the Eastern Conference at 19-47, and they have a plethora of young, undeveloped talent, which points to a rebuild.
Why Missing the Playoffs Might Be Good for LeBron James
If I could use one word to summarize the Los Angeles Lakers season, I'd use the word: Yikes. After a tough loss against same town rival LA Clippers Monday night, many have called the Lakers season done, over, a disaster, among many other things.
What Is Kyrie Irving's Future in Boston?
Kyrie Irving began the NBA season telling the Boston fans he'd love to re-sign with them if they'd have them. Fast forward to around the trade deadline and the all-star break, he somewhat backtracked on that statement, saying, "Ask me July 1," about his impending free agency. Now with a Boston team that is struggling in the season's final stretch, Kyrie Irving's future in Boston has become uncertain. Will he stay or will he go?
How the L.A. Lakers Can Make the NBA Playoffs
The Lakers are in a tough spot coming down the stretch of the NBA season. They are currently outside of the top eight in the west, and if you follow basketball, that means they aren't in the playoff picture. The Lakers haven't made the playoffs in the past several years, but missing the playoffs when you have LeBron James on your team is something that hasn't happened since his second year in the NBA. There are some people who have written the Lakers off already, but the Lakers still have a shot to squeeze into the playoffs. But, things need to change and in a hurry.
What D'Angelo Russell's Rise Means for the Brooklyn Nets
If any team has caught the attention of the National Basketball Association, along with its fanbase, the Brooklyn Nets are definitely one of them. After the all-star break, they find themselves in the middle of a rather tight playoff race at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. They have been playing well this season, bringing an intensity to every game. Usually, that intensity they play with is what pushes them over the edge and allows them to win these games. Another reason could be the career year being put together by their all-star point guard D'Angelo Russell. But with big decisions regarding their cap room, Russell's rise gives the Nets more questions than answers.
Why Paul George Could Actually Be This Year's MVP
Russ was fouled out, it was double overtime, and time was low. Paul George was against Joe Ingles and made a decisive move to the basket. Stepping through Ingles and Ricky Rubio, George floated the ball over 7-footer Rudy Gobert and sinks the game-winning shot. It was then that I knew. He could become the MVP of the NBA. In a year where Giannis is dunking in the NBA, and Harden is frying his foes into a chef special, PG-13 is playing like he is a man on a mission in a gritty rated-R film. And after the all-star break, Paul George now has an understanding of his role in OKC and has the perfect star teammate in Russell Westbrook. And with the when peaking at the right time is crucial to winning, George is hitting his peak, right on time.
Female Rappers to Tune into for 2019
2018 was a great year for music overall, particularly the hip-hop genre. With many memorable albums dropped last year, many have noticed the emergence of females in the rap game. Most of the attention was geared towards Cardi B and her explosive arrival, but there were many other female artists who made their own statements themselves. They might've flown under many people's radar, but that's what I'm here for. With 2019 shaping up to be another awesome for hip-hop, here are some female rappers you guys should look out for in 2019.
Despite Win, New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis' Situation Will Be Awkward Remainder of the Season
The New Orleans Pelicans didn't trade Anthony Davis. Despite his public trade request, New Orleans decided to keep the All-NBA big man, and he played in his first game since that request Friday night against the Timberwolves. It was about as awkward of a game you'll ever see, as the seats were barren, and the fans that were there booed early in the game when Davis touched the ball. The Pelicans won 122-117, and those boos turned into cheers but with Anthony Davis not playing in the fourth, is this how it's going to be like for the rest of the season? Things are awkward and it won't get any better.
The New York Knicks Won Their Trade with the Mavericks
Last week, the Knicks gave the NBA a shock as they traded away their forward Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks. Many Knick fans scratched their heads as to why they would make such a move, especially after the Knicks made a point to center their rebuild around Porzingis. But the Knicks made the move anyways, and now it seems like they are back to square one. Not so fast, as the Knicks actually are the big winners of this trade.
The NBA Has Taken Over the NFL's Biggest Week
What was supposed to be the NFL's biggest week has felt like it's been pushed to the B-block of many sports news, TV shows, and to the shorter column in the newspapers. In fact, it is probably accurate. The NBA has taken over this week in sports news, with many big moves and news sending ripples through the NBA. From LeBron's return to Kyrie's comments to feel-good All-Star stories, the NBA has had a flurry of news come out this past week. All of this being huge and imperative to the future of the NBA, it has made the NFL and the Super Bowl take a backseat when it was supposed to be their week in the limelight. Credit the NBA, but the NFL could be to blame as well for their lackluster lead-up to the Super Bowl.
The Lakers Can Be the Next Super Team in the NBA
The Los Angeles Lakers are at an interesting spot in their season. With the trade deadline approaching, they have been one of the teams experts and fans have been talking about possibly making moves before February 7 at 3 PM. Their hopes of making a splash increased substantially when Pelicans forward Anthony Davis requested a trade on January 28. If Magic Johnson, President of Basketball Operations, can work his Magic (pun intended) and get Anthony Davis, the Lakers could be working towards being the next NBA super team by next season. Don't believe me? Keep reading.
