Reading Time: 2 minutesFollowing his victory in the Home Run Derby, New York Mets star Pete Alonso won $1 million in bonuses. In fact, this is more than his base salary of $676,775. How is this possible? First, it is important to understand how contracts in the MLB work. Similar to other sports, the MLB has a collective bargaining agreement (CBA). This agreement serves as the basis of the relationship between players and their teams. One aspect of this agreement is the rights that both players and teams reserve regarding contracts. Once a player makes the Major League, their...Read More

Reading Time: < 1 minuteOver the past few years, James Harden has been one of the most electrifying players in the NBA. However, Harden’s long tenure in Houston may be coming to an end, and for the better. First off, James Harden is 31 years old, and should be on the decline in the near future. A team like the Rockets are not really contenders, especially considering that they have serious injury and depth concerns. If the Rockets want to capitalize now on Harden worth -which will start to decline in the next few years- this is a perfect...Read More
Reading Time: 2 minutesFor the first time in years, the New York Knicks seem to be headed in a good direction. This season, the Knicks have a somewhat competitive lineup that actually fits. It is composed of: Point Guard: Shooting Guard: Small Forward: Power Forward: Center: Elfrid Payton RJ Barrett Alec Burks Obi Toppin Mitchell Robinson Frank Ntilikina Austin Rivers Kevin Knox II Julius Randle Nerlens Noel Dennis Smith Jr. Wayne Ellington Reggie Bullock Omari Spellman Immanuel Quickley Jacob Evans III Ignas Brazdeikis While not spectacular, the lineup features new additions that are certain to help the Knicks...Read More
Reading Time: 2 minutesFollowing the events of the 2020 NBA draft lottery, it has become clear to me that the NBA is incentivized to keeping the New York Knicks bad. And while I am a Knicks fan, this is an actual theory that I believe could be possible. Taking a look at the NBA draft lottery over the past few years, there is a common trend. Since 2015, the Knicks have never had a pick higher than it was originally expected. In fact, the Knicks’ draft pick has slipped to a lower position each of those years except for...Read More
Reading Time: 2 minutesTom Thibodeau is a death sentence for the New York Knicks. Up until this point, it seemed like the Knicks were doing everything right front office-wise. This signing is the pivot that will send all of their recent progress right into the ground. I will give Thibodeau credit where it is due. He is a great defensive coach, which will be good for Frank Ntilikina and Mitchell Robinson, but that’s about it. As seen in his last coaching job in Minnesota, it was evidently clear that he was out of touch with the modern NBA. His...Read More
