When Freddie Freeman inked an 8-year, $135 million extension with the Atlanta Braves back in early February of 2014, it was officially his time to take over as the “face of the franchise.” After Freeman’s best buddy and first ballot Hall of Famer Chipper Jones retired at the end of the 2012 season, it was […]

Once dubbed the ‘shortstop of the future’ for the Milwaukee Brewers after a breakout campaign in 2013, Jean Segura fell on hard times in 2014 and 2015 – both professionally and personally. The 2013 National League All-Star hit .294 that season, to go along with 12 HR, 49 RBI, 20 2B’s, 10 3B’s, 44 SB, […]

I really would like to just give my prediction for this series and leave a sentence along the lines of, “Really? Do you need to know anything more?” That would be irresponsible. This is still a playoff matchup after all. Memphis started this season with a starting five of Mike Conley, Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, […]

Prior to the start of the 2015-16 season, it looked like it was going to be a race between the Spurs and the Clippers for the best bench. Well, the Spurs delivered, but it took an array of moves for the Clippers to finally settle on the guys who would ultimately help them get to […]

The Miami Heat and Charlotte Hornets are very similar per some base level numbers. The Hornets have a 3.3 net rating and a 54.5% true shooting percentage. The Heat? A 2.6 net rating and an exact true shooting percentage match. They couldn’t do it much differently on offense though. There’s a real dichotomy in offensive […]

In a normal NBA season you’d only see the goings on of LeBron James any time you tuned in. However, his Cleveland Cavaliers have taken a back seat to the dominant, record-setting ways of the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs. The Detroit Pistons saw an uptick in their offense after the All-Star Break […]

This Dallas Mavericks team has surprised all season, so who am I to count them out now? After the DeAndre Jordan fiasco, they weren’t supposed to make the playoffs, let alone as the six seed. Dirk Nowitzki certainly wasn’t supposed to be playing at this high of a level at this age. But when it […]

Despite this being a false reputation, the Atlanta Hawks vs. Boston Celtics is viewed as a series of two similar teams. Two units that are better than the sum of their parts and that don’t feature any stars but play great team basketball. That sells the Hawks quite a bit short, even if it is […]

For as historic as the Warriors have been all season, it’s looking like they’re set up for the most boring first round matchup of them all. That seems weird to say about a team that has Steph Curry chucking shots from 45 feet consistently, but it’s true. There’s just not a ton to be excited […]

Coming into the season, plenty of people had the Raptors emerging as one of the top teams in the East due to the addition of DeMarre Carroll. Many of those same people had the Pacers missing the playoffs yet again. Well the Raptors did indeed come through as one of the top teams, settling into the […]

Even though fall brings all of the excitement of football, playoff baseball, and the start of the NHL/NBA, I still think that spring is the most exciting time to be a sports fan. After this year’s thrilling finish to March Madness, both the NBA and NHL playoffs are now set to start in short order, and both should […]
