This season’s rookie draft class has been spectacular, to say the least. All of the highlight-reel plays and success that these young men have had so far, it’s no question that they are on a mission to make noise in the NBA and are setting the tone early for their careers. Let’s take a look at some of the top 4 rookies that have been spectacular this season.
A three-team trade that included Miami, Minnesota, and Memphis landed Andre Iguodala to the Heat. While Andre Iguodala was the big name in the deal, Jae Crowder has made the most impact on the team so far. Since his Heat debut on February 9th, Crowder has averaged 11.9 points and 5.8 rebounds while shooting 39.3 percent from beyond the arc. Continue reading →
NBA DFS last night was so sickening that it caused our usual writer, Josh Livi to feel under the weather. Hopefully, you were able to avoid the mess the Milwaukee Bucks caused last night. If you were able to avoid that then hopefully, unlike me, you faded Norman Powell. If not, chalk it up to a bad night and hopefully, my players hit big tonight. I’ll provide you with two studs and two values on this big nine-game slate tonight. Continue reading →
Welcome back. We are on the board in 2020 with a solid 3-1 week. I have decided to give more picks rather than just a “lock of the week” or an “over of the week.” I know I wake up in the morning and instantly check the lines for the day. Which is weird, because I live in Ohio, a place that won’t allow me to place bets.
This month I have posted a 25-13-2 record for NBA picks and will be looking to bolster my bank account and win record as I hope the same for you. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a special day to remember all the sacrifices made throughout the years by people to help give us such fortunate lives. Without further ado, let’s get into some picks.

Since the New Year, I’m 10-5 on my NBA Bets. My goal is to help you be just as successful. Sunday is a day that will likely be overshadowed by the NFL Playoffs, but there will still be some great NBA action today.
It’s almost December and at this point, the NBA season has shown what teams came to play to start the season and those that didn’t. It’s no debate who some of the top teams are in the league right now and who needs to reevaluate their approach before it’s too late. Here’s where the teams that need to go back to the drawing board rank. Continue reading →
Since we last met, several rookies, have risen and fallen in the rookie hierarchy, and for various reasons. With many rookies continuing to have impressive scoring performances, it’ll be the little things that separate the candidates as the season progresses. Continue reading →
Another day, another division preview! The start of the regular season is almost here. T-minus less than two weeks! Are you excited? I’m excited. In fact, I think this could be the most interesting season for both players and for fans. So many teams switched up their rosters in a drastic way and that can only mean one thing: there’s going to be plenty of drama.
The Toronto Raptors dethroned the Golden State Warriors in six games to take the NBA Championship, but there is still another NBA event that people can look forward to. The 2019 NBA Draft will be happening on Thursday and it will either revive a franchise back to its glory or give them more balls at next year’s lottery. The consequence of the one and done era is that top basketball prospects are leaving school after just one year, here’s a look at one who stayed for two! Continue reading →
Despite their head coaching job opening up on the last day of the season when the Memphis Grizzlies’ front office decided it was time to part ways with J.B. Bickerstaff, Memphis finds themselves as the only team yet to make a hiring decision. It’s now been a full three weeks since the hirings of John Beilein and Frank Vogel, by Cleveland and Los Angeles respectively, and the Grizzlies still haven’t made any clear decisions on the direction they want to go, but one potential option seems to have disappeared for them, and it’s not necessarily of their own volition.

On Saturday it was announced that Ja Morant will undergo a right knee arthroscopic procedure to remove loose bodies from his knee. This procedure is scheduled for Monday morning. I’m sure this news had a lot of NBA fans worried about the prospect who is expected to be picked close to the top of the upcoming NBA draft.
After a pretty intense NBA Draft Lottery last week, the top 14 picks in the upcoming draft are now revealed. In this article, I am going to predict the top 10 picks as I see how it could play out in June. Continue reading →
After jumping from Number 8 to Number 2 in the draft lottery, the Memphis Grizzlies are reportedly zeroing in on guard Ja Morant with the second overall draft pick. With the Grizzlies eyeing Morant, it could mark the end of 12 year veteran guard Mike Conley‘s career in Memphis. To clear up more playing time for the rookie point guard, and possibly tank for next year’s draft class, there’s a great chance the Grizzlies will entertain talks for the veteran guard this summer.
Last week’s Rookie Report featured a break-out 30-point performance from Luka Doncic as well as some impressive scoring from Trae Young. We also checked in on the Pacers rookie guard Aaron Holiday and his performance in the wake of Victor Oladipo‘s injury.
The NBA trade deadline is just around the corner and the rumor machine is on fire. While most teams won’t make a deal, each will consider many options between now and the February 7th deadline. In a six-part series, I will provide one trade each NBA team should consider making between now and the deadline. The Southwest division is last and here is a trade each team should make. Be sure to check out the previous parts on the Pacific Division, Northwest division, Southeast Division, Central Division, and Atlantic Division.
The Memphis Grizzlies have had a rough time in the Western Conference in recent years. Plagued by injuries this past season, the Grizzlies are looking to come into this next season fighting in an already voracious Western Conference. Can the Grizzlies improve in the West?
