Boston’s Best Moves, Part II

By Shawn Dennis Skepticism towards the positions of both Danny Ainge and Brad Stevens in Boston has been the talk of Bean Town. Ainge has held his GM spot since 2003, the fourth longest tenure as head of basketball operations in the NBA currently. Stevens, surprisingly enough, was hired all the way back in 2013 following the departure of Doc Rivers. Holding an NBA head coaching position is practically a temporary job at this point with there only being 9

Underrated players for the 2021 NBA season

By Shawn Dennis Before we take a look at the players who’ve been putting up numbers and aren’t getting the love they deserve, let me explain what it means for a player to be slept on in the league.  In this article, the players included I believe have not been given as much credit and recognition that other players are receiving who are putting up similar stats as them. This is typically because the franchise that they play for is

New Faces for NOLA?

By Shawn Dennis Going into the 2020-2021 season, the New Orleans Pelicans had much higher expectations in comparison to last season. When the Bubble came, Alvin Gentry couldn’t get his team to make the playoffs, as they ended with a disappointing 2-6 record and fired Gentry in the process. Moving Jrue Holiday to the Bucks in the offseason to provide Lonzo Ball with more minutes, as well as getting Steven Adams and Eric Bledsoe in return, was arguably the best

What is the best Hornets lineup?

By Shawn Dennis Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets has been getting the most media coverage since he first bought the team in 2010. This is in large part due to the fact that the man who said he’d beat the owner in a game of 1v1 has a son that’s on the roster (LaMelo Ball.) Perhaps MJ giving the injury-ridden Gordon Hayward a max deal worth $128 million over four years might have something to do with it as well.  The

Beal needs to be a Wizard elsewhere

By Shawn Dennis Whenever your wife gets into your work affairs, you know something isn’t right. After coming off another game with 40-plus points and scoring 24 of those in the third quarter against the Pelicans on Wednesday night, Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards lost once again.  Beal’s wife Kamiah Adams-Beal had this to say in defense of her husbands performance in spite of another loss: Sick of it — Kamiah Adams-Beal (@KamiahAdams) January 28, 2021 A reporter asked

Who won the Harden deal?

By Shawn Dennis It’s about damn time. After months on end of waiting to see what the Houston Rockets were going to do with their now problematic point guard, who wanted nothing to do with being in Houston after 9 seasons of “giving the city all he has,” James Harden is now a member of the loaded Brooklyn Nets. I think we all saw this coming, but nobody wanted to believe it finally fell into fruition.  Before we dissect the

Looking ahead to the NBA Trade Deadline

By Shawn Dennis Most die-hard NBA fans love making predictions. Whether it’s the day before the trade deadline or not even 10 games into the season, fans become drawn into being a GM and fantasizing about decisions they’d make. Well, I’m definitely one of those fans and I’ve come up with a list of players and trades that some desperate and contending teams should consider as injuries, unexpected downfalls, and other factors have stirred up the league already.  I’ve included

Potential Expansion spots for the NBA

By Shawn Dennis NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was asked about the possibility of the league expanding a day prior to the start of the season on December 22, 2020, to which he responded, “it’s sort of the manifest destiny of the league that you expand at some point.” The addition of a new team is something that hasn’t been done since the Charlotte Bobcats (now Hornets) joined back in 2004. Keeping the league even and having a propionate number of

Best Moments of 2020

By Shawn Dennis As 2020 has finally come to an end, the last thing we want to do is recap with the horrors and tragedies that have haunted the first-year of this decade. The sports world has suffered tremendous losses and heart-wrenching moments that will certainly put an asterisk on this year, especially having the anticipated Tokyo 2020 Olympics being postponed.  Instead of dwelling on the bad, let’s be optimistic and highlight those that shined bright in 2020. With how
