The Dallas Mavericks have all the makings to be the team of the NBA’s future. Luka Doncic is already an MVP candidate at 21-years-old. Kristaps Porzingis is one of the top big men in the league, and just 25-years-old. They also hold claim to great role players in Dorian Finney-Smith, Seth Curry, and Maxi Kleber. With that being said, they’ll have decisions […]

Los Angeles Lakers
Lukas Weese - Oct 12, 2020

Every championship team experiences adversity. Given the challenges the Lakers faced on and off the court, it makes their 17th title in franchise history taste even sweeter, setting themselves up for a decade of success. 

The strange 2020 NBA season culminated in LeBron James returning the Los Angeles Lakers to basketball prominence. Obviously, the NBA faced significant challenges to finish this season. We all know the league chose to pause in March during the Covid-19 outbreak, resulting in nearly four months without basketball. The NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver decided […]

Los Angeles Lakers NBA Title
Dylan Guest, Editor - Oct 11, 2020

Miami Heat NBA Finals
Chase Gage - Oct 9, 2020

Foe LeBron James finished with 40 points, 13 rebounds, and 7 […]

NBA Finals
Lukas Weese - Oct 3, 2020

It may not be the loudest, like Michael Jordan or Scottie Pippen. It may not have the drama, like Shaquille O’Neal or Kobe Bryant. What James and Davis do have is mutual trust and respect for each other. The selflessness that’s rare between two superstars, looking to dominate every time they step onto the court. 

After a blowout in Game 1, the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat returned to the court for Game 2 of the 2020 NBA Finals. Los Angeles took advantage of the injured Heat and snagged Game 2 with a score of 124-114 to go up 2-0. Tyler Herro and Meyers Leonard started for the injured […]
