For years, people have been trying to remove LeBron James as the league’s best player. Ever since he uttered the words, “not five, not six, not seven...” people have stormed the castle as they tried to find a possible suitor. The Anthony Davis believers have fallen quiet, as the extremely talented center has only carried his team to over 40 wins once in his career. Numerous stars looked like potential candidates, but simply haven’t been able to reach LeBron’s greatness. Some argue Kevin Durant did it last year, but those are just his burner accounts fighting the good fight for him.
Heading into this weekend's game against the Penn State Nittany Lions, the Ohio State Buckeyes probably have one thing on their minds more than any other, and that’s stopping Saquon Barkley. Although the Buckeyes are quite fond of dominant ball carriers, Ezekiel Elliott and Carlos Hyde just to name a few, this go-around they’ll be tasked with slowing one down as opposed to helping one eat up turf. Penn State's “Big Back,” in ability and sheer physical size, won’t be that easy to slow down though. This will be for many reasons, but mostly because he is just that elite, and illustrates it every time he is on the field. Just like the elite backs before him and that now play on Sundays, he has special traits that make it inevitable that whenever he touches the ball, something good is bound to happen. What are those traits you might ask? I thought you never would.
On Oct. 20, 2017, Future and Young Thug blessed the hip-hop community with a joint project titled Super Slimey. The 13-track mixtape (or album or whatever it is) is 99 percent Thug and Future, with Offset being the lone artist featured. Southside, Wheezy, and London On Da Track are just a few of the producers that worked on the project.
If you're an Astros fan, odds are Ken Giles nearly put you into a coma or gave you a heart attack during Game 2 on Wednesday night. Regardless, everything worked out for Houston in the end, and the Astros came out on top of one of the greatest World Series games ever.
Lance McCullers Jr. has been absolutely outstanding for the Astros this postseason. The 24-year-old has thrown 13 innings in the playoffs with a 2.08 ERA. This was highlighted by his amazing performance out of the bullpen in Game 7 against the Yankees, where he shut down a powerful New York lineup for four innings in a rare relief role.
