Oh man, we absolutely killed it last night! We got a monster 11-game slate tonight. That can only mean one thing, studs. Lots and lots of studs. And some sleepers. Let’s dive into them and get to it! Continue reading →
This past week, the NBA had the mid-season trade deadline, and as such, trades happened! Who woulda thunk?
At The Scorecrow, trade deadlines and draft days are our equivalent of a national holiday, so when the NBA’s largest trade in two decades went down to start the madness, we all just got drunk instead of doing our jobs and writing things. Sorry Johnnie.
Either way, here are the trades, and here are (most of) our thoughts. I, for one, don’t have them often, so y’all better appreciate the rare occasion. – JoshContinue reading →
This time last year, Laker fans were rejoicing in the fact that LeBron James chose to dawn the purple and gold. Laker fans instantly envisioned championships and former glory restored. However, last season wasn’t a testament to what the Lakers could eventually become.
The Brooklyn Nets‘ 2018-19 season was a demonstration of what can be achieved when team-mates simply like one another. Considered a long shot to make the playoffs last October, New York’s unfashionable franchise defied all expectations to make the playoffs, courtesy of strong chemistry, a never-say-die attitude and an egoless group of much-maligned misfits. Although they bowed out in the first round, they gave the heavily-favored Philadelphia 76ers a fright and with a band of young, united players, the Nets appear perfectly placed to develop further in the near future.
Team Giannis led by as many as 19, but Damian Lillard and Kawhi Leonard brought Team LeBron back before Kevin Durant closed out the game with some crucial threes to give Team LeBron the win for the second straight year. The All-Star break is fun allowed teams to rest before the big stretch runs for the playoffs. Here’s where all the teams in the playoff picture rank so far this season. Continue reading →
As the All-Star weekend approaches, I wanted to tell you which players deserve to be in the All-Star game who didn’t get the votes they should have. I will select one player from the Western Conference and one player from the Eastern Conference and want to hear who you guys think deserves an All-Star spot that is not getting the votes they should be getting.
D’Angelo Russell was drafted in 2015 by the Los Angeles Lakers as the 2nd overall pick in the draft. Russell came into the league with high hopes of being the next star point guard for the Lakers. He had the capability of being the next star point guard for the Lakers too, but his stint with the Lakers, unfortunately, didn’t last long.
In August of last year, I spoke to Joe Harris of the Brooklyn Nets about his aspirations for both himself and his team ahead of the upcoming NBA season. The then 26-year-old was reluctant to reveal exactly how far he believed the team could go, but he assured me that they had “a lot of reasons to be optimistic”. Three weeks into 2019, with over half of the regular season complete, that could be a serious understatement.
Last year was yet another let down for the Brooklyn Nets. They went into the season with low expectations and it’s safe to say their expectations were met. Will they bounce back this year and make a run at the playoffs?
