The Los Angeles Lakers have been living in mediocrity once again this season. Since winning the NBA Finals in the Orlando bubble, the Lakers have been mired by injuries to a slew of stars and role players alike. This season has been no different. LeBron James has taken it upon himself to carry the team. […]

The LA Clippers fell 126-103 to the Utah Jazz, placing them in the 8th seed. Superstar wings Kawhi Leonard and Paul George did not suit up as it was the second leg of a back-to-back. The team has dropped eight of its last nine. And with a little under half the season remaining, it does […]

For the second consecutive year, the Denver Nuggets fell short of their postseason expectations. After reaching the conference finals during a historic run in the 2020 bubble, Denver’s past two seasons have been plagued by injury. Cornerstone point guard Jamal Murray tore his ACL a few games before the 2021 playoffs resulting in a missed […]

Domantas Sabonis and De'Aaron Fox of the Sacramento Kings
Tre Rowbotham - Jan 18, 2023

The Sacramento Kings have been the laughingstock of the NBA for nearly two decades. With their last playoff appearance coming in the 2005-06 season, Kings fans have had little to celebrate over the last 16 seasons. That narrative is changing this season. Are the Sacramento Kings Playoff-Bound? The Kings Boast the NBA’s Best Offense Sacramento […]

The LA Clippers are barely treading water in the western conference. A lack of a full roster, inconsistent play, and a tougher schedule is plaguing the team. Amidst this disappointing season is the equally frustrating play from their point guards, Reggie Jackson and John Wall. Both lead guards have had up-and-down seasons. Consequently, this led […]

Terance Mann of the Los Angeles Clippers
Jon Lee - Jan 14, 2023

The LA Clippers were losers of six straight games going into Tuesday’s bout with the Dallas Mavericks. That streak was snapped after Kawhi Leonard’s 33-point and nine-rebound performance. But Leonard was not the only reason why they won. Head coach Ty Lue made some lineup and rotation adjustments that reaped benefits on the court. One […]

Toronto Raptors on The Ringer’s Top 100 Regardless of how the season is rolling along, the Toronto Raptors have some real talent on their roster. Rather than rummaging through trade rumors (though you should totally check this link out), here’s a look at The Ringer’s top 100 rankings list. There’ll be some disputes and comparisons […]

Tre Rowbotham - Jan 13, 2023

The NBA season has just crossed its halfway point. Around this time of the year, fans speculate about who will make the All-Star team and who might get snubbed; however, the more important discussion this season revolves around the MVP race. While most seasons feature a couple of players worthy of the award, the 2022-23 […]

Rudy Gobert potential offseason move for LA Clippers
Max Kappel - Jan 10, 2023

The Rockets Win Displayed the Timberwolves’ Biggest Issue Despite pulling out of Toyota Center with a victory, the Wolves win didn’t happen blissfully. The Wolves trailed starting from the game’s outset, which was odd considering the relative infancy of the Rockets roster. The Wolves were down by 20 early on at one point, and assistant […]

When is Myles Turner not on the trading block? Turner and trade rumors go together like Converse and high socks. Been around forever, a classic. Made for each other. In 2023, it’s more of the same. He’s been a part of a turn-ed around Pacers team that’s four games above .500 so far. He and […]

Which Eastern Conference Guards Should Be All-Stars? Is it already time for All-Star voting? Soon enough, everyone will be watching future basketball stars duke it out in March. Then not too long after that, it’s playoff time. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The All-Star game is coming before both of those, and with an […]

It’s already 2023, so it’s time for some LA Clippers New Year resolutions. While there is a lot to like, there is a lot to address. Some might call the Clippers’ season so far a disappointment. Although they are very much in the mix for top seed, the gap could close sooner than later. The […]

Donald Stewart - Jan 5, 2023

Happy New Year, readers! As NBA franchises around the league take stock of where they are sitting in January, let’s take a deep dive into my current NBA power rankings. This is an essential phase in the season. With the All-Star break and trade deadline next month, teams will decide whether they are competing, settling […]

The LA Clippers are finally (almost) healthy. Aside from the recent ankle sprain from point guard John Wall, they are fully loaded. From an optimist’s perspective, the team looks every bit of the championship contender that many thought they were. From a pessimist’s, the glaring issues are still there. Lack of urgency at times, causing […]

Rebuilding has a dreadful reputation. Seen as the antithesis of what makes a sports team, it’s usually managers not players, that support its existence. The truth is, things break down. Players raking in millions of dollars surely understand their Porsches and Lamborghinis will have engine and exhaust issues, let alone the common man’s flat tire […]

Chris Paul is getting back to himself as Devin Booker is healing up for the Phoenix Suns
Tre Rowbotham - Dec 25, 2022

Something has been brewing in Phoenix over the past few months. Ever since the Mavericks blasted the Suns in an embarrassing game seven display, Phoenix hasn’t looked quite right. Jae Crowder demanded a trade, Deandre Ayton tried to leave in free agency, and Devin Booker, Cam Johnson, and Chris Paul have been sidelined for extended […]

After a 10-13 start to the season, the New York Knicks were staring down the barrel of another losing season. Since then, the Knicks have gone 15-8 and are looking like sudden playoff contenders in the Eastern Conference. What changed? Julius Randle decided to start playing like an All-Star again.
