I’ve talked a lot of shit about the New York Knicks’ 4th overall selection in the 2015 NBA Draft, Kristaps Porzingis.  I’ve called him names such as The Human Scarecrow, a shitty Bane that no one is afraid of, a human stick figure, the man who got cursed by the old lady in Stephen King’s Thinner, Andrea Bargnani Lite, etc.  I was absolutely furious when the Knicks drafted him, but after watching a few NBA Summer League games, I’ve come to the conclusion that the real-life Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm-Flailing Tube Man Kristaps Porzingis is OK, I guess.

2015 NBA Mock Draft

June 24, 2015 by

2015-NBA-draft

The NBA Draft is less than 24 hours away and I’ve channeled the minds of every GM in the league to bring you this mock draft.  This is how the draft should go down.  With the first pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves select: Read the rest of this entry »

The 2015 NBA Draft will be held in Brooklyn on Thursday, June 25.  The New York Knicks have the fourth overall selection in the first round, and there are many ways this can go down.  Here are a few of the scenarios that may play out:

Best-case Scenario A
Minnesota selects Karl-Anthony Towns, LA selects human stick figure Kristaps Porzingis, Philadelphia selects D’Angelo Russell, and with the 4th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks select:  Read the rest of this entry »

Kristaps Porzingis

 

UPDATE: I was wrong. Like the world is flat wrong.  See my apology to Kristaps here. Continue reading to see why Phil Jackson has 11 NBA Championships and I have 0.

Standing 7’1″ and weighing 209 lbs, Latvian power forward Kristaps Porzingis is rocketing up draftboards for some ungodly reason.  Hailed as a “stretch 4” with “great length”, the latest draft rumors have Porzingis going as high as 2nd overall to the LA Lakers and no lower than 5th overall to the Orlando Magic.  With his game resembling a younger, shittier version of Andrea Bargnani, Kristaps Porzingis apparently has a decent shot but struggles to grab more than 4 rebounds per game in the Liga ACB overseas.  If the New York Knicks pull the trigger on Darko Milicic 2.0 with the 4th overall pick, I am going to stop watching them for good.     Read the rest of this entry »

Wednesday, May 27 was the last time we saw NBA action.  The Finals don’t start until Thursday, June 4.  8 days between games.  I understand the Cavs swept the Hawks and the Warriors only dropped 1 game to the Rockets, but 8 days until game 1 of the next series?  Could these NBA Finals be more anticlimactic?

Andrew-Wiggins

 

Hindsight is 20-20, but trading the most hyped player since LeBron and other pieces for Kevin Love shortly after the draft was always a gamble.  The extremely athletic Andrew Wiggins didn’t decimate the competition during his 1 year NCAA stint, but he showed flashes of brilliance at times and would go on to handily win the NBA Rookie of the Year award while dropping almost 17 points per game for the Minnesota Timberwolves.  Kevin Love, on the other hand, had a down year (which was expected playing alongside studs LeBron James and Kyrie Irving) and is now out 4-6 months following shoulder surgery.  In the wake of Kelly Olynyk practically ripping Kevin Love’s arm off, I can’t help but ask myself if the Cavs would have been better off keeping Andrew Wiggins.

The Washington Wizards and their fans have gone into full troll-mode after completing their first round sweep of the Toronto Raptors.  Rapper Wale clowned on Raptors ambassador Drake on Instagram, the Wizards official Twitter account mocked the “experts” who predicted the Raptors would win the series, but Paul Pierce may have topped everyone with his latest post.  Check out how The Truth mocked the Raptors after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »

lebron

LeBron James is the best basketball player on the planet.  While Steph Curry will likely win the MVP award this season, anyone with eyes knows LeBron James is a better basketball player, and is more important to his team.  I used to be a fan of LeBron.  Ever since I caught wind of his high school hoopsmixtape where he was dunking on little white kids and chasing down fast breaks for ridiculous blocks the likes of which I’d never seen before, I was a fan.   But I’m not anymore.  I don’t root against LeBron, but I no longer root for him to succeed.  Before I jump into why, check out that video I was talking about: Read the rest of this entry »
