The History of Number One NBA Draft Picks in the Lottery Era

Posted on 26 Jun, 2014, by in Basketball, Featured

When the first pick of the 2014 NBA draft is announced, it’ll be the 30th time in the lottery era that a team has taken a chance on someone through the magic of ping pong balls. It makes for a good chance to review which number one picks have done a great service through their NBA careers, from the likes of Patrick Ewing, David Robinson, Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James, to others who have been less successful like Pervis Ellison, Michael Olowokandi and Anthony Bennett.

Who Gets Picked First in the 2014 NBA Draft – Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker or Joel Embiid?

Posted on 24 Jun, 2014, by in Basketball, Featured

A year ago it was quite clear who would be the number one overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft: Andrew Wiggins. The college basketball season changed that, giving Joel Embiid and even Jabari Parker an edge. But the injury to the former Kansas big man once again shuffled the deck of cards, making the identity of the next number 1 draft pick, a selection the Cleveland Cavaliers hold at the moment, something of an unknown.

LeBron James & The Decision 2.0 – Where Should He Go?

Posted on 22 Jun, 2014, by in Basketball, Featured

Four years later, and we’re at the same spot again. LeBron James trying to make up his mind on whether to stay with the Miami Heat or go somewhere – Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers. It seems every team in the NBA has some sort of angle on how to convince the best player in the NBA to play for them. It seems the entire league is waiting for him to make up his mind. More

Miami Heat – A Change is Gonna Come

Posted on 16 Jun, 2014, by in Basketball, Featured

It had to happen at some point, but it probably comes around sooner than expected: The Miami Heat didn’t just lose in the NBA Finals. They’ve reached a point from which big decisions, future changing ones must be made. It begins with LeBron James and his next contract, and projects on what Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will do, all waiting for the best player to make up his mind about what’s next. More

2014 World Cup – Lionel Messi Can’t Win for Argentina on his Own

Posted on 16 Jun, 2014, by in Featured, Soccer

Beating Bosnia 2-1 was a decent way to start off a World Cup for Argentina and especially Lionel Messi, visibly burdened by the pressure and expectations. However, his attempt to make it all happen on his own didn’t work out so well until he and the team changed their approach. Carrying on that way will only result in heartache for him and the nation that expects so much of him. More

NBA Playoffs – LeBron James Trying to do the Impossible

Posted on 15 Jun, 2014, by in Basketball, Featured

Against all odds seems to be a very fitting theme for what the Miami Heat are trying to do with elimination starting them straight in the face. LeBron James has another opportunity to carve his name on the NBA’s wall of immortality, although trying to change the direction in which this finals series is going might be the most difficult thing he has ever had to face.

NBA Playoffs – Dwyane Wade Getting Old, LeBron James Getting Frustrated

Posted on 13 Jun, 2014, by in Basketball, Featured

Determining the fate of a franchise based on two bad games is wrong. LeBron James is still the best player in the league, and Dwyane Wade isn’t about to retire anytime soon. But from what we’ve been seeing in these last two games from the Miami Heat, there’s a feeling that this wonderful run the Big Three (along with Chris Bosh) have had over the last four years is reaching its final stop.
