NBA Play-In Preview

You gotta hand it to Adam Silver. I wasn’t keen on this idea when he announced it, but it’s actually been fantastic. I imagine it will be a permanent fixture moving forward. I just hope we start calling it the “Wildcard Round” from now on. The games start tomorrow, 2 Eastern Conference matchups and then […]

NBA Trade Deadline (’21)

Let’s have a look at all the moving and shaking that happened (and didn’t happen) at the deadline this year! Victor Oladipo is on his way to Miami, in exchange for Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynk and a draft swap. If Oladipo plays up to even half of his potential, Miami have won this trade easily. […]

A Splitting Headache

I am extremely guilty of overusing the phrase “a splitting headache”. Not in the sense that I complain a lot when I have a headache, more in the sense that I love a good pun and it’s one I get to use frequently. I made one on twitter just the other day. My girlfriend will […]

NBA All-Star Recap (’21)

I spent my morning watching replays of dunk contest from years past and I couldn’t help but get excited for the All-Star events. Admittedly, I wasn’t at first. A big gathering in Georgia isn’t the best idea in the middle of a pandemic, but I do love this game and for better or worse, I […]

NBA All-Star 2021

30 Teams, 30 Thoughts

For the NBA 2020-21 Season EASTERN CONFERENCE Atlanta Hawks Personally, I think the Hawks are slightly overrated this season. A lot of people are buying into the hype due to their recent acquisitions, but I’m not one of them. Yes, they’ve made a lot of great decisions and improved their roster, but I still think […]

NBA Season Preview (2020-2021)

It’s way too early, but what kind of sports journalist would I be if I didn’t try to predict everything before the season has even started? So, as you make your way through this, just keep in mind that I’m just making my best estimates! It’s just for a bit of fun, so if you […]

The James Harden Drama

Alright. I’ve spent a lot of my time biting my tongue when it comes to James Harden. Those of you who know me, know that I’m far from his biggest fan. I can respect what he does on the court (to an extent) but for the most part, I think he is overrated as a […]

NBA Trade Breakdown : Wall and Westbrook

Looks like my break is ending early, because we got ourselves a trade! And a big one at that! John Wall got his wish and is headed out of Washington. Russell Westbrook also got his wish and is leaving Houston. There was a rumour going around that this would happen and I did not believe […]
