Harden or Giannis: MVP Race 2019

As 16 teams compete to become NBA champions, a smaller, elite group of players fights for an individual honor like no other. The Most Valuable Player Award for the NBA is the most prestigious prize for one player in basketball. The MVP races in the last few years have been very interesting, especially for the 2016-17 season that featured Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Harden averaged 29.1 points per game, 11.2 assists per game, and 8.1 rebounds per game that season. Westbrook racked up 31.6 points per game, 10.4 assists per game, and 10.7 rebounds per game. He became the … Continue reading Harden or Giannis: MVP Race 2019

NFL Mock Draft 3.0

The NFL Draft will begin in just over 10 days. Dreams will come true and the futures of franchises will be set. It’s one of my favorite events in all of sports. In this mock, I tried to write about what happened in free agency as much as about what could happen in the draft. If you want to read more about the descriptions of these players, look back to my first two mocks. However, if you’re caught up, stay and enjoy the article. Arizona Cardinals – Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma No change of pick here. The Cards haven’t given … Continue reading NFL Mock Draft 3.0

Whether you root for playoff-tested players like Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, or Lebron James (oh, wait…) or guys who have been to one or no postseasons like D’Angelo Russell, Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid, Donovan Mitchell, and Giannis Antetokounmpo, these playoffs will be fun.

MLB Preview 2019

Spring has sprung and it’s baseball season once again. Cheers to launch angles, starting pitchers lasting no more than 5 innings, and 3+ hour games.

March Madness: Sweet Sixteen Preview

Some people love it when March Madness is full of upsets and Cinderella stories are prevalent. Those people probably haven’t enjoyed this year’s tourney. None of the top 3 seeds have been eliminated and just one team above a 5 seed (12 seeded Oregon) remains. However, this isn’t a reason for sorrow at all, as this year’s Sweet Sixteen and beyond should be extremely entertaining. Goliaths of different conferences and regions will square off in epic battles from Thursday-Sunday this week. Here’s a preview of all of the excitement lined up for Thursday and Friday.   Thursday, March 28th   … Continue reading March Madness: Sweet Sixteen Preview

NFL Free Agency Predictions

On Wednesday, all hell will break loose in the NFL, as reports will come flying in of where stars young and old will sign for the season. Especially young studs this year. Here are my rankings of the free agents of this class and where I see them fitting. Le’Veon Bell, RB – Houston Texans – The Texans need weapons for Deshaun Watson, and with a lot of cap space, they can afford Bell. Earl Thomas, S – Dallas Cowboys – Thomas to the Cowboys rumors have been around for a while now, but that could actually happen this offseason. … Continue reading NFL Free Agency Predictions

Pre-Combine NFL Mock Draft

As the Combine closes in, let’s take a look at how things could work out for each team. Of course, the Combine changes the outlook of every mock draft, so this could look very outdated very soon. Or I’ll look like a genius. I doubt it, but we’ll see. This mock doesn’t include any trades, as it’s way too early to predict anything like that. Draft day trades are so crazy nowadays, I won’t even be able to predict them in April. Anyway, enjoy the article. Arizona Cardinals – Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama The Cards could and I think should … Continue reading Pre-Combine NFL Mock Draft

Super Bowl Check-in

The Super Bowl is upon us and, not to brag, I have foreseen this matchup far in advance. In my last article, the predictions for this NFL season, I predicted the Pats would play the Rams in the Super Bowl. I also wrote that the Pats would win 31-28. I just wanted to write this article to reaffirm my faith in my former self (and maybe to brag a little bit). Hopefully tonight will be a fun one! Enjoy the game! -Sam Continue reading Super Bowl Check-in

Full Standings Prediction 2018

Who knew pumping out articles can be daunting? In all seriousness, balancing two hours of homework, my own sports, and making these posts can be tough, so I’ve fallen a bit behind in making my standings projections. I was hoping to have them all done by week 2 of the season, but it’s becoming obvious that isn’t possible. So, I’ve decided to just write a full standings prediction with playoff predictions so I can prove that I didn’t alter them any more than I did after week 1. After this post, I’ll still go over each division, but you’ll know … Continue reading Full Standings Prediction 2018

AFC North Preview 2018

Week 1 was eventful for this division. The Bengals and the Ravens took convincing wins and the Steelers and the Browns tied each other. I’ll admit, I didn’t predict they would tie as it says in my projection, but what can I do when I already know it happened. Anyway, enjoy the article.   AFC North Pittsburgh Steelers Record: 11-4-1 Key matchups: vs Falcons week 5, @ Jaguars week 11, vs Patriots week 15 X-Factor: Le’Veon Bell – We all know that Bell has been holding out for a long time. In his week 1 absence, James Conner was terrific. … Continue reading AFC North Preview 2018
