The East-leading Cleveland Cavaliers just fired their head coach, and now could be looking to trade one of their Big 3. While the latter will be hard to do, changes are definitely coming in Cleveland. Continue reading
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant had some choice words for the media about the way one of the NBA’s top ten players of all-time had been covered this year. Durant might technically be right in what he said, but he needs to be very careful whose hand he is biting while his is still ringless. Continue reading
The best team in basketball knocked out the best player in basketball Tuesday night to win the 2015 NBA Finals, four games to two. Stephen Curry had many moments that screamed “best shooter in the world” and LeBron James played his tail off to keep his team in the series. Continue reading
After 7 nights without basketball on television, the NBA Finals are set to kick off Thursday night as the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors look take home the Larry O’Brien trophy. Saying the team’s paths to the Finals were different would be an understatement. Continue reading
Yes, the headline is intended to mimic the “MJ Being MJ” headline from last week when Michael Jordan took to Twitter to show his competitive nature is still alive and well. Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson was at his antics again last night when he video bombing new New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher after a 96-93 Knickerbocker win. Continue reading
As a new NBA season approaches the 2015 NBA Playoffs seem so far away. Everyone across the Internet is doing power rankings and prediction, but why is no one going all the way and predicting who will win each division and where everyone will fall in the playoffs? That’s why I decided to do it, and each team comes with a key to success (either to be successful this season or successful for their future). Continue reading
LeBron James dominated (and continues to dominate) the headlines of the 2014 NBA Offseason just as he did four short years ago, but this time around his dominance is being perceived in a very different way. The one-hour televised special is a thing of the past; this year a letter announced where James would play along with Instagram posts asking and deciding what number The King should wear in his second stint with the Cavaliers.
James, along with the other big names who were free agents this offseason, made decisions on where to play in 2014-15 that would not be considered the norm in 2010. The “Big 3” craze started in the summer of 2010 when James decided to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in South Beach, and has tried to be duplicated on other teams ever since.
The 2014 ESPYs took place last night in Los Angeles and this year’s host definitely had his own style when hosting the sports awards show. Rapper and songwriter Aubrey “Drake” Graham not only hosted the show, but added numerous pre-taped segments that I think helped his performance out a lot.
In case you missed anything from the 2014 ESPYs all of Drake’s clips will be included below. I grade each segment Drake did throughout the show, and Drake’s Overall Grade can be found at the bottom of this page.
Drake got progressively getting funnier as the show went on. I thought his opening monologue was decent considering Drake never once called himself anything close to a stand up comedian.
Drake’s Opening Monologue Grade: C+
There wasn’t a television special or even a press conference, but the entire world was made aware of LeBron James’ decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers 11 days into the new NBA calendar year, and just like that it felt like NBA free agency had official started. Sure, players agreed with teams before “The King” made his decision, but the big free agents and what felt like every team in the league were put on hold until James made up his mind.
