Quarterback Tiers in 2016

Top 13 Quarterbacks Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers are the best quarterbacks in the NFL, right? Would you say the next names that come to mind are Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Tony Romo and Cam Newton? It might be slightly debatable with the next group, based on preference or something along those lines. The…

NBA 2016 Free Agent Destinations?

Staying Put:  LeBron James: Sound weird but he did technically opt out using his player-option in a smart business move to maximize his earnings. The King of the Land isn’t going anywhere, don’t even think about it. Kevin Durant approves of the draft day trade where OKC acquired his talented friend Victor Oladipo, stretch-4 Ersan…

5 NBA Stars Transitioning to Superstardom?

I don’t use the word superstardom too loosely. In today’s NBA, the relevant superstars are: LeBron James, Steph Curry, and Kevin Durant. There’s a plethora of great basketball players, a ton of stars, All-Stars, Olympians, and rising stars. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett had successful runs, and Wade is still hanging by a moment. Kobe…

Eli Manning or Philip Rivers?

The most admirable trait that I see from Philip Rivers is his ability to play every single week. That is probably something that is overlooked, because when you look around the league, there are some prominent quarterbacks that have missed games and suffered major injuries: the newly-retired Peyton Manning (neck), Tom Brady (knee), Drew Brees (shoulder),…

Post NBA Draft Wind Sprints

Sixers Could Have Done More Philadelphia selected Ben Simmons at the top of the draft, as expected. What I didn’t like is that they held onto their third big guy, the 24th and 26th picks, rather than going for the home run and trading back into the top 10 like they were interested in doing. Whether…

Derrick Rose Trade: Good for Knicks, Bad for Bulls

From Windy City to Big Apple Chicago makes a ridiculous trade to ship former MVP Derrick Rose to New York. The hometown kid enters the final year of his contract, which made him a prime candidate to get traded, financially. The deal also includes versatile wing Justin Holiday, and a 2nd round pick that gets…

NBA Windsprints: Draft, Offseason, Olympics

There is a report that when Philadelphia met with Ben Simmons, they let him know that he was going to be the first pick of the draft. GM Bryan Colangelo says that they would like to package their 24th & 26th picks in the latter part of the first round to get back into the top-8.…

How I View the Warriors After Losing

Had the Golden State Warriors repeated against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Draymond Green would have been named MVP of The Finals. That’s especially crazy, when you consider that he got suspended for a game, a game in which they lost. Green plays out of position, bigger than he really is, and it’s amazing. I’m not too fond…

Fan From Home: My Game 7 Night

I am one of the biggest, die-hard, analytic, stat-tracking sports followers as they come. I’m not the type that will go and buy season tickets, but that’s because I prefer to watch games at my house: no traffic, no driving, people I actually want to be around, no unnecessary crowd fights, no lines for food and drinks,…
