Thoughts on the Donovan Mitchell Trade (9/1/22)

Kevin Durant didn’t get traded, but we got the next best thing.  In somewhat of a shocking event, the Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired All-Star shooting guard Donovan Mitchell from the Utah Jazz. In exchange for their franchise player, Utah received Collin Sexton, Lauri Markkanen, Ochai Agbaji, three unprotected first-round picks, and two pick swaps. AfterContinue reading “Thoughts on the Donovan Mitchell Trade (9/1/22)”

Does Kevin Durant Make Sense for the Toronto Raptors? (7/28/22)

It’s been almost a month since Kevin Durant requested a trade from Brooklyn, and outside of a few rumors, it seems a deal is nowhere close to being completed. Usually, it doesn’t take so long for a player who wants out to get his wish. With nothing else going on in the NBA world, itContinue reading “Does Kevin Durant Make Sense for the Toronto Raptors? (7/28/22)”

How Good Are the Portland Trail Blazers? (7/10/22)

On Friday superstar point guard Damian Lillard signed a massive two-year, $122 million extension, committing to Portland through the 2026-27 season. While I’m not surprised by his unwavering loyalty, it had me thinking about the ceiling of this Trail Blazers team. First, you have to believe that Dame can be the guy on a championshipContinue reading “How Good Are the Portland Trail Blazers? (7/10/22)”

Bucks Off-Season Wishlist (5/17/22)

With their loss on Sunday, the 2021 NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks fell short of a return to the Finals in disappointing fashion. A combination of putrid shooting and a questionable defensive scheme led to the game seven collapse. Now that their season is over, it’s time to start thinking about what will be an importantContinue reading “Bucks Off-Season Wishlist (5/17/22)”

Future of the New York Knicks (1/13/22)

Woj bomb alert! If you didn’t see the trade yet, here’s what went down: New York Knicks get: Cam Reddish, Solomon Hill, 2025 second-round pick (via Brooklyn) Atlanta Hawks get: Kevin Knox, 2022 protected first-round pick (via Charlotte) Cam Reddish is a very talented player. He’s a natural scorer with a high ceiling, and atContinue reading “Future of the New York Knicks (1/13/22)”

The Charlotte Hornets are a Ton of Fun (10/31/21)

The 2020-21 NBA season was my first with League Pass. I spent countless hours in my basement watching all 30 teams play. I loved watching every team (because I love watching basketball), but I definitely had favorites. Besides the Bucks and the Spurs, I found myself watching a ton of Hornets basketball. They weren’t superContinue reading “The Charlotte Hornets are a Ton of Fun (10/31/21)”

Detroit Basketball, Baby! (6/23/21)

And the first pick in the 2021 NBA Draft goes to… The Detroit Pistons! Congratulations Pistons fans! I’m happy for you. The first pick is really big for a team whose franchise player was Andre Drummond for most of the decade.  All signs point to Cade Cunningham being the number one selection. Although I’m notContinue reading “Detroit Basketball, Baby! (6/23/21)”

Run it Back, Denver! (6/14/21)

The Denver Nuggets season is over, and it didn’t end in an ideal way. After beating Portland in 6 games, they got swept by the Phoenix Suns. Of course, Jamal Murray being injured is a large part of that. Anytime your second option goes down, you’re gonna be worse, so the Nuggets shouldn’t be tooContinue reading “Run it Back, Denver! (6/14/21)”

What’s Next for the Portland Trail Blazers? (6/5/21)

Another first round exit for the Portland Trail Blazers. That’s unfortunate. Losing to a Denver Nuggets roster missing their second best player is not the way that Portland wanted to go out. Damian Lillard definitely didn’t want to lose. Over the six games, he averaged 34 points and 10 assists while shooting 45% from three.Continue reading “What’s Next for the Portland Trail Blazers? (6/5/21)”

We Love the New York Knicks (6/3/21)

After an overachieving 2021 season, the New York Knicks are finally done. They kinda got crushed by the Hawks, but that doesn’t matter. The Knicks had the most successful 2021 NBA season. The big reason why is, of course, their overachievement record wise. Nobody (besides maybe some die hard Knicks fan) had them finishing anywhereContinue reading “We Love the New York Knicks (6/3/21)”
