Talent Over Exposure – The Debate Between Damian Lillard And Kyrie Irving

There are certain questions with simple answers. Australia or Oakland? Duke or Weber State? Number 1 or number 6 overall? 4th rated player in the country or a 2-star guard out of high school? These are all questions in which, other than the lifelong Ogden resident or some guy with an obsession with the number […]

Will Damian Lillard Make Team USA’s World Cup Team?

Saturday night, Team USA played an exhibition game against Brazil in Chicago. The game was fairly uneventful aside from the homecoming of Derrick Rose and the stellar play by Anthony Davis.

Paul George Injury

In The Wake Of The Paul George Injury, This Just In – Life Isn’t Fair

Have you heard?  Paul George suffered a catastrophic injury last weekend playing for Team USA.  By now you’d have to have either been on another planet, knee-deep in a Netflix marathon, and/or in the midst of a Twitter boycott not to have heard about or seen the Theismanesque fracture that left a franchise in disarray, […]

The “What If” Draft – Part One

NFL training camp has begun, and my mind is making its transition into full on football mode until early October when the NBA starts picking up steam again. Before I forget about every other sport for a couple months, I think it’s essential to leave basketball talk by playing what I like to call, the […]

Mo Williams

Now With Mo Williams Gone, Who Will Step Up On The Portland Trail Blazers Bench?

The Portland Trail Blazers officially said goodbye to last year’s backup point guard Mo Williams on Monday.

Portland Trail Blazers – Salvation Lies Within

If you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse.  The Portland Trail Blazers didn’t have a draft pick, lacked the cap space to add a significant free agent, and the ones they did bring in are more glue than substance.  But this team’s future success isn’t dependent on outside talent, but more so on the current […]
