8 years ago, the Philadelphia 76ers embarked on a path that would be more uphill than down. They committed to the idea of being the worst team in the NBA for years on end, gathering top talent in the draft, to create a homegrown super team. “The Process,” as it came to be known became a well-documented story line. Over the years, a team that … Continue reading Philadelphia Learned A Hard Lesson About Trust Last Night
Last night was the most overrated night in American sports. The NFL Schedule Release. And I hate it. A lot. Even more than the NBA preseason, pitchers and catchers reporting to Spring Training, or when Dan LeBetard is on PTI. While the rest of us are trying to focus on the NHL or Golden State Warriors Memorial Playoffs, the NFL is that annoying friend that’s … Continue reading The NFL Schedule Release Is The Bane Of My Existence
To call me a fringe NBA fan would be generous. Despite my birth certificate saying I’m 27, anyone who’s ever watched a game with me would assume I’m 30 years older for how many missed travel calls I scoff at. You’d think I saw “Pistol” Pete Maravich in his LSU days based on every fancy pass receiving a “who does this guy think he is?” … Continue reading We Will Look Back In History And Say D’Angelo Russell Saved The NBA
Are we in the trust tree? I hope so. Because I’m going to stop being polite and start getting real. I’ve been living among Massholes for 8 years now. I know these people better than they know themselves. Mostly because they are a very single-minded bunch, so they’re easy to predict.

In a move that would have shocked people a week ago, Leonard was dealt to half the US’s favorite country during an election year, Canada. The result is a super team of Leonard, Kyle Lowry, the ghost of Vince Carter, and Drake. What a force to be reckoned … Continue reading Who Does America Root For If It’s A Warriors Raptors Final?
NBA free agency has started and so continues the unending news cycle that is “the association.” The most notable news has come out of California with the Los Angeles Lakers stocking up as much talent as they can as they look for a title push with LeBron James and the Golden State Warriors signing embattled center, DeMarcus Cousins, just last night. The people I’m friends … Continue reading Is The Western Conference Trying To Become The WWE?
The one thing that has been more clear than DeAndre Ayton going 1st overall to the Phoenix Suns is his motivation for doing so. Money, and lots of it. In the last few days, Ayton has justified his signing with the titan of 80s apparel, Puma, as “Just trying to get paid,” (don’t quote check me) and voiced his opinion that success in the NBA … Continue reading DeAndre Ayton vs. Laremy Tunsil: A Tale of Biased Persecution
