The Golden State Warriors are facing their first true test of adversity

The Golden State Warriors are facing adversity for the first time in a while. With Kevin Durant joining the Warriors, the expectations for this team skyrocketed. Adding a bonafide scorer to a 73-win team blew those expectations through the roof. Even after they moonwalked through the playoffs last year, everyone wrote this team in the NBA

Kevin Durant

Golden State can’t fall victim to the Kevin Durant show

We saw two different teams in the first two games of the Western Conference Finals but the one consistent theme was Kevin Durant. There was no stopping the guy as he was a walking bucket getting whatever he wanted on the floor. With that being said, Durant’s greatness came in the absence of the others. The

Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony as the sixth-man could be the best situation for him

This season for the Oklahoma City Thunder was an obvious letdown. They added two pieces in Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in hopes of a championship run but they fell short. They only saw a one win improvement from the previous season and they also suffered a first-round loss to the Utah Jazz. However, the

What will we see from LeBron James today?

What will we see from LeBron James in a first-round elimination game? An aggressive yet expressive one I would assume, especially after coming off of a bad Game 6 loss. James isn’t one who’s accustomed to taking first round exits in the playoffs. It hasn’t happened yet and he should do whatever it takes to

The spotlight of the NBA is slowly drifting away from LeBron James

LeBron James is someone who isn’t shy of the spotlight. He’s been heralded the king since high school and has been the star of the show ever since. However, in the past couple of years, that spotlight on James has changed and I think he has noticed that as well. The phrase “face of the

LeBron James and the Cavaliers have to play the role of aggressor in Game 2

The Indiana Pacers took Game 1 with assertiveness and aggression. They kept Cleveland on their heels by constantly attacking. The lead got up to 21 in the first quarter and while Cleveland came within striking distance, they just couldn’t get over the hump. In Game 2, roles must be reversed if the Cavaliers don’t want to

Indiana Pacers vs the Cleveland Cavaliers

What gives the Indiana Pacers the best shot to upset the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Cleveland’s struggles have been on front street this season however they’ve still managed to prevail and hold down the fourth seed. Despite their defensive deficiencies, they’re still the favorite to win this series and the favorite to make it to the NBA Finals in some eyes. That’s not too crazy of a statement considering they

JaVale McGee

The Defensive Short: JaVale McGee standing tall

The Golden State Warriors let their defense do the talking in Game 1 of their matchup against the San Antonio Spurs. The star of the show was JaVale McGee who came out active and long on defense. He had his hands tied going up against LaMarcus Aldridge, who’s one of the best low post offensive

NBA LeBron James and James Harden

Does the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award really focus on the most valuable player?

Is the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award really about being the most valuable? When you read the phrase “most valuable” you think of the player that’s most important to their team. If we’re calling the most heralded award in the league the Most Valuable Player award then I believe it should truly be awarded to
