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 - Oct 11, 2020

The Los Angeles Lakers are 2019-20 NBA Champions, winning the title in six games. The title — their first since 2010 — comes just months after the tragic death of Kobe Bryant. The Lakers tied the Boston Celtics for the most titles in NBA history with 17 after a rather quick 4-2 series with the […]

Miami Heat NBA Finals
Chase Gage - Oct 9, 2020

Jimmy Butler went super saiyan in a herculean effort to keep the Miami Heat alive in the 2020 NBA Finals.

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

sdsdsdsdAs the final buzzer sounded on game four of the 2020 NBA Finals, LeBron James took one step closer to his fourth-ever championship.

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 […]

NBA Finals
Lukas Weese - Oct 1, 2020

Lakers head coach Frank Vogel called a timeout to gather his team. Coming out of that pause, the Lakers became the Goliath, thanks to unlikely players. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope converted two critical three-pointers. Anthony Davis made a driving layup, thanks to an assist from Rajon Rondo. Even Alex Caruso, the dynamic undrafted guard, made a three-pointer late in the first quarter, giving the Lakers their first lead of the game.

In just his second season in purple and gold, LeBron James has carried the Los Angeles Lakers to its first NBA Finals appearance since 2010.
