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 hisContinue reading “Settling the Devin Booker Versus Donovan Mitchell Debate (11/9/22)”

Thaddeus Young- Toronto’s Key to Success (4/24/22)

Thaddeus Young has been in the NBA for a long time. Drafted in 2007, he has shared the court with many all-time greats. LeBron, Kobe, Shaq, Duncan, Wade, Durant, Dirk, Giannis, the list goes on. He’s had some solid seasons himself, as he averaged 14 points per game across seven years with the Philadelphia 76ers.Continue reading “Thaddeus Young- Toronto’s Key to Success (4/24/22)”

Lonnie Walker’s Ascension and What it Means for the Spurs (3/4/22)

The 2022 Rodeo Road Trip was a sensational one for Lonnie Walker IV. He scored 17+ points in six straight games, and his 30-point performance at home last night against Sacramento extended that streak to seven. Lonnie has shown flashes of his scoring ability throughout his career. He’s pulled off absurdly acrobatic lay-ups like thisContinue reading “Lonnie Walker’s Ascension and What it Means for the Spurs (3/4/22)”

Is Chris Paul an All-Star this Season? (12/27/21)

The Western Conference guard pool is ridiculously deep. Almost every team has a star guard. Because of this, there are going to be some significant snubs this season. Stephen Curry. Damian Lillard. Luka Doncic. Devin Booker. Chris Paul. Donovan Mitchell. Those guys are established superstars who are virtual locks to make the All-Star game everyContinue reading “Is Chris Paul an All-Star this Season? (12/27/21)”

Buy or Sell: Early Overperformers (11/12/21)

We’re only a few weeks into the 2021-22 NBA season, but it’s been a year’s worth of fun. So far we’ve seen a bunch of players perform below their expectations, but we’ve also seen guys perform above them. Today, I’m playing a game of buy or sell with six of those overachievers. I’ll tell youContinue reading “Buy or Sell: Early Overperformers (11/12/21)”

Jordan+Mamu: the Most Underrated (and fun) Young Duo (10/22/21)

The reigning champion Milwaukee Bucks are one of the deeper teams in the NBA. They don’t have a ton of big names like the Lakers or the Nets, but the chemistry and energy their bench guys bring makes their bench mob one of the best.  The bench is highlighted by fan-favorite Bobby Portis Jr., veteranContinue reading “Jordan+Mamu: the Most Underrated (and fun) Young Duo (10/22/21)”

Tyler Herro Thinks He’s Nice (4/25/21)

Recently, I’ve seen some stuff come out about Tyler Herro. Apparently, the Heat organization is worried about his stardom getting to his head, which is leading to a decrease in his work ethic. This may legitimately be the case. Tyler has that cocky demeanor on the court that makes him easy to dislike (unless you’reContinue reading “Tyler Herro Thinks He’s Nice (4/25/21)”

The Recent Overrating of Kyrie Irving (4/7/21)

Kyrie Irving. One of the best ball handlers ever. Great scorer. Second best player on the 2016 Cavalier championship team. 7-Time All-Star. 2-Time All-NBA player. Obviously an excellent player. This season, he’s averaging 28 PPG, 5 RPG, and 6 APG on 50/39/90 shooting. Those would be MVP numbers if he wasn’t the third best player onContinue reading “The Recent Overrating of Kyrie Irving (4/7/21)”

The Underappreciation of Bradley Beal (12/16/20)

Let me start off with the difference between underrated and underappreciated. Underrated means someone is really good, but no one recognizes it, and that player needs to be more recognized. Underappreciated is when someone is recognized, but that’s it. They’re not actually appreciated for what they do, even though everyone acknowledges it. Since I’m writingContinue reading “The Underappreciation of Bradley Beal (12/16/20)”
