Malaki Branham Is Finding His Stride (1/28/23)

The San Antonio Spurs are fully committed to the Wembanyama sweepstakes.  Coach Popovich has given the reigns of the team to the young players and is prioritizing development over winning. So far, that approach is paying off. Core pieces Keldon Johnson and Devin Vassell have both proven why they belong in that category, with the…

Five Potential Trade Candidates for the Milwaukee Bucks (1/12/23)

Is it time to start worrying about the Milwaukee Bucks? Giannis and company have dropped seven of their last twelve contests, including a four-game skid when matched up against other top Eastern Conference squads and a near thirty-point loss to the bottom-feeding Hornets. Even wins have been concerning. The Bucks allowed a massive run to…

2023 All-Stars So Far (1/4/23)

There is some incredible basketball being played this NBA season.  As we approach the halfway point of the 2022-23 season with the start of a new year, six players averaging 30+ points per game, the MVP race is a dogfight, and both conferences are ultra-competitive. As a result, making All-Star selections come February will be…

Put Some Respect On D’Angelo Russell’s Name (12/4/22)

Once a well-loved player in the NBA community, opinions on D’Angelo Russell have changed for the worse. Russell made his first and only All-Star appearance in 2019 for the fan-favorite Brooklyn Nets squad known for their epic bench dance routines. Since then, the former second-overall pick made a quick pit stop in Golden State before…

Things Are Finally Looking Up for the Sacramento Kings (11/21/22)

The Sacramento Kings have been the laughingstock of the league for a while now. They haven’t earned a playoff berth in a whopping 16 seasons, an absolutely woeful streak. Their stay in NBA purgatory has been extended by questionable draft decisions, poor defense, and a lack of game-changing free-agency acquisitions. They’ve tried to be competitive…

Settling the Devin Booker Versus Donovan Mitchell Debate (11/9/22)

Donovan Mitchell is playing out of his mind this season.  The three-time All-Star is playing arguably the best ball of his career so far while leading the 8-2 Cleveland Cavaliers. He’s shooting at career clips from inside and outside the arc and showing improved defensive effort. It’s early, but he’s on track to receiving his…

Bennedict Mathurin Is Making It Look Easy (10/29/22)

The 2022 NBA rookie class has been beyond impressive through the 2022-23 season’s first week. First-overall pick Paolo Banchero is averaging over 20 points per game and is looking like an All-Star already. Jaden Ivey, Keegan Murray, Jalen Duren, Jeremy Sochan, and others are doing their thing as well.  Among all those names, the player…

Predicting the Top 100 NBA Players of 2023 (10/18/22)

NBA day is finally upon us, and to celebrate the conclusion of the offseason it’s time to predict the top 100 players of the 2022-23 season. This is my third edition of this list and I’m hoping it will be my most accurate one. It’s always a blast trying to guess which players will make…

2023 NBA Power Rankings (10/11/22)

With training camp wrapping up and preseason underway, rosters are mostly solidified across the league. That means it’s time for my 2022-23 NBA preseason power rankings. My rankings are based on a combination of predicted regular season and postseason success (with playoffs holding more weight) and take into account roster talent, fit, and past success…

2023 Award Predictions (9/26/22)

We are now less than a month away from the 2022-23 NBA season, which means it’s once again time for my annual preseason articles. I’m tipping off my preseason triad with my award predictions. Just like last year, I’ll list my top five favorites (and a few honorable mentions) before giving my winner for each…
