James Harden: The Chief Architect of the Cleveland Cavaliers

Reading Time: 2 minutesMeet the Cleveland Cavaliers. They have begun the past two seasons the same way: 9-10 after exactly 38 days into the regular season. However, in the 2020-21 season, the Cavaliers would end the year 13-40, finishing 13th in the Eastern Conference. This season, they are 10-2 since their 9-10 start and are fighting for homecourt advantage in the first round. Meet James Harden. The former MVP and scoring champion frequented strip clubs and McDonald’s early last season in an effort to be traded. He was successful. However, through his success in the trade to Brooklyn, he...

The Los Angeles Lakers are in serious trouble

Reading Time: 4 minutesThe Los Angeles Lakers were the championship pick of many, but they have done little to reaffirm those convictions. Due to questionable off-season moves and little flexibility, the current iteration of the Los Angeles Lakers is not a championship-caliber team. By adding Russell Westbrook, the Lakers completely punted on depth (which kept them in the playoffs towards the end of last season), defense (the biggest reason they won the championship in 2020), and shooting (they shot 48.9% from the field in the 2020 playoff, first amongst all teams). But besides that, and the fact that Westbrook...

Why Extending Paul George Was a Good Decision

Reading Time: 2 minutesPaul George‘s 4 year/$190M extension came as a shock to almost everyone, myself included, especially since that infamous clip of George hitting the side of the backboard continues to circulate social media. But as I thought of the benefits that this deal brings to the Los Angeles Clippers, the biggest bonus that the Clippers gave themselves was a very valuable asset. Despite all the justified criticism “Playoff P” has received because of his drastic performance during the 2020 NBA Playoffs, George is still a great basketball player. After having shoulder surgery before the 2019-20 season, George...

The Kings Are Stunting The Growth of De’Aaron Fox

Reading Time: 2 minutesWe can all agree that De’Aaron Fox is one of the most electrifying young players in the NBA, but the Sacramento Kings could be putting that in jeopardy. The reason for that would be signing Hassan Whiteside. While the deal is only worth $2.3M for one year, this is the first step in ruining the career of De’Aaron Fox. What I fear for Fox is a situation much like Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming. McGrady was a highly explosive guard, albeit a much better shooter than Fox. He has tons of highlights where he’s dunking around...

Why Giannis Should NOT Sign the Super-Max… Yet

Reading Time: 2 minutesBarring death or retirement, Giannis Antetokounmpo will have a super-max contract offer waiting for him from the Milwaukee Bucks. The only questions are, when and if he will choose to sign the 5-year deal that is worth more money than most people can imagine. We’ve all seen the news from Zach Lowe, the reports that say Giannis will probably sign the extension in the coming weeks. The Bucks front office is “confident” that Giannis will be locked up before the season starts, which is surprising to many. If I were in Giannis’ position, I would attempt...
