The Chicago Cubs Are the World Series Favorites
Make no mistake: the Dodgers are a great team. They have Clayton Kershaw, the pitching equivalent of Mike Trout. They have Corey Seager and Justin Turner, two of the best infielders in the National League. They have Kenley Jansen, a lights out closer who has been nothing short of dominant throughout his career. And yes — as my colleague Dylan Svoboda pointed out — they’re predicted to be better (though by a fairly slim margin) than the reigning WS Champs, the Chicago Cubs.
The Warriors Have Official Killed The NBA
We've all sat around for the past six or seven weeks convincing ourselves that the rubber match between the Cavs and the Warriors would save what can only be described as an unwatchable NBA Playoffs. A clash of the titans, the deciding game between the two super teams, the most built up NBA Finals in years. Through two games, it’s apparent the Warriors are making sure they’re not only sticking the final knife in the bleeding out playoffs, but they’re making sure basketball won’t be fun for quite some time.
What the Devils Should Do with Patrik Elias
He’s the franchise leader all-time in goals, assists, and points. He’s had countless heroic moments in the playoffs and regular season. He’s won two Stanley Cup championships with the team. No doubt, his will be the fifth number retired by New Jersey, and may be the last sweater retirement the team sees for a long time.
The Best Landing Spots for Kristaps Porzingis
As if this offseason hasn’t already gotten off to a ridiculous start with a number of whales available through trade or free agency, Phil Jackson just took everyone’s porpoises and raised them a horse with a horn on its head.
How LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers Can Take a Cue from Tom Brady and the New England Patriots
First and foremost, WOW! The way the Super Bowl played out was definitely one for the ages. After being down pretty big for the most of the game, Tom Brady did what Tom Brady does, he made plays, and enough to bring his organization their 5th NFL championship. It wasn’t easy though, as Brady has faced quite a bit along the way in these past few seasons.
A New NBA
In February rumors were abound regarding the possibility of NBA expansion. Commissioner Adam Silver has typically been quite conservative regarding potential expansion but he’s also a rail-thin white dude who gives perfect dap so let’s not suppose he’s anything less than pleasantly surprising. Several cities were mentioned as potential landing spots. Seattle, Lousville, Kansas City, Virginia Beach, Anaheim, Las Vegas, Anaheim, Mexico City and San Jose have all generated conversation to varying levels of authenticity as NBA host cities. There are basically four categories these cities fall in:
Neither Lebron nor KD Paved the Way for Superteams, but They Perfected It
Boys and girls, the word of the day here is “superteam”. The NBA Finals and the playoffs as a whole have revolved around this word. Whether it’s being thrown around in sentences like “Kevin Durant joining a 73-win team is the most stacked superteam of all time,” or “LeBron’s just mad someone made a better superteam than him for once,” or even “why did we even try to win 50 games we can’t beat this superteam, we could’ve been golfing a month ago,” you’ve heard it time and time again. By now you know it’s the combination of a minimum of three superstars joining together like one giant Morphing Power Ranger to just blow past everyone that gets in their way.
Baylor Needs and Deserves the Death Penalty
I know what you’re thinking: “There’s no way the NCAA can do this. That’s too harsh of a punishment.” This situation is not the same as Penn State or SMU. One involved a coach performing disgustingly inhumane acts on children, and the other involved coaches paying recruits/players. In Waco, the issue starts directly with the players. If any of these players are guilty of committing crimes against women, they should be kicked out of the football program — no questions asked. However, it doesn’t work that way at Baylor.
