Ah, casual sports fan: We meet again. The 2018 NBA playoffs begin this afternoon! How the hell will you know what is going on in the games, other than like a bunch of sweaty dudes bouncing a ball and throwing it through a pair of rings, if you don’t have some 10,000 words of preview and analysis to scan past in preparation??? I don’t know. I just know that if I don’t publish this blog, it will be hard for me to account for the last couple hours of my time. And for that reason and no others, let’s take a look at the first-round matchups! We’ll start out west, where the teams are good, instead of doing them in the order the games start, because that would make too much sense. Houston Rockets (1) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (8) When is the first fr*ckin’ game?Sunday, 9:00 p.m. Eastern, on TNT. What is the deal with these teams?I don’t particularly like typing it, because they’re not much fun to watch and I’d prefer the rest of the NBA … [Read more...] about A Timely And Exhaustive Preview Of The 2018 NBA Playoffs

The Detroit News Published 11:39 AM EST Feb 26, 2019 Jaren Jackson Jr.'s rookie season with the Memphis Grizzlies has hit a pothole with a deep thigh bruise that has kept him out of action since late last week. And, while the injury could cast a cloud on the remainder of his season, the former Michigan State standout's future in the league is undeniably bright. Jackson is ranked No. 16 on ESPN's list of top 25 NBA players under the age of 25, published Tuesday. No Pistons made the list, with is based on "future potential," but Jackson leads a trio of NBA players with state of Michigan ties in the rankings. Nets guard and former Michigan star Caris LeVert and Flint native Kyle Kuzma of the Los Angeles Lakers are tied at No. 21. Jackson, who played one season at Michigan State before the Grizzlies selected him No. 4 overall in last June's NBA draft, is averaging 13.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks as a 19-year-old.

Nicklaus Gray Nashville Tennessean Published 7:00 AM EDT Apr 9, 2019 Now that the NCAA Tournament is finished, the focus for many college players will be to decide whether or not to stay in the NBA Draft pool. Underclassmen have until April 21 to put their name into the pool of eligible players, and the underclassmen have until end-of-day May 29 to withdraw their name. As of now, few if any high-profile names have announced their intentions to stay in college. Tre Jones of Duke, who could have been selected by some guard-needy teams in the bottom 10 selections of the first round, announced last week that he was going to stay in Durham for another season. With that in mind, here's our NBA Mock Draft 1.0. The lottery and the playoffs will set the selection order. For now, we're using the current standings to set the order. GOOD OR BAD?: NBA's proposal for draft age is admission the one-and-done rule is broken 1. New York Knicks — Zion Williamson, Forward, … [Read more...] about 2019 NBA Mock Draft, post NCAA Tournament: Who’s after Zion Williamson?
Vince Ellis Detroit Free Press Published 11:25 AM EDT May 18, 2019 Free Press sports writer Vince Ellis reveals his first mock draft, projecting the entire first round before the 2019 NBA draft on June 20. 1. New Orleans Pelicans: PF Zion Williamson College: Duke freshman. Age: 18. Size: 6-foot-7, 285 pounds. The word: The consensus top pick. Most hyped rookie since LeBron James. 2.

New York Knicks: G/F R.J. Barrett College: Duke freshman. Age: 19. Size: 6-7, 205. The word: Could ultimately turn into the best player in the draft class. Smooth game could translate. 4. L.A.
