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 competitiveContinue reading “Things Are Finally Looking Up for the Sacramento Kings (11/21/22)”

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.

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.

AfterContinue reading “Thoughts on the Donovan Mitchell Trade (9/1/22)”

2022-23 Breakout Candidate: Onyeka Okongwu (8/10/22)

The East is better than ever, and the Atlanta Hawks are shaping up to be one of the top teams in the conference. A disappointing first-round exit in 2022 after their 2021 Conference Finals run raised questions about the team’s ceiling, and they responded by adding All-Star guard Dejounte Murray to pair with offensive phenomContinue reading “2022-23 Breakout Candidate: Onyeka Okongwu (8/10/22)”
