“ESPN Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Make All-Time NBA Lists!!!! (DTS Podcast – #105)

ESPN recently put out its top-74 NBA players of all-time.

It’s just about the worst list in the history of lists.

I think I’ve found my #1 pet peeve.

This list seems to have been constructed by a 12-year old who thinks Steph Curry invented, founded, and perfected basketball….

And I guess I will never understand, why it’s so hard to understand the words ALL-TIME!

“Michael Jordan Would Score 100 Points Per Game In Today’s NBA!! (DTS Podcast – #102)

David Falk, Michael Jordan’s old agent, said MJ would score 60 points per game in today’s NBA.

If you believe that, I have some s*** to sell you.

In today’s video, follow my sound logic to understand how the all-time greats would compete against each other’s eras.

This is not make believe, or completely insane in any way, shape, or form. Thanks for entertaining my fantasy world for today!

“RIP KOBE” (DTS Podcast – #87)

Father. Husband. NBA Legend. #24. #8.

RIP Kobe. RIP Gianna. RIP to the other 7 passengers on the helicopter.

Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers Legend, passed away in a tragic helicopter crash Sunday morning in California. The outpouring of support and emotion from the NBA community, the Los Angeles community, and the global community has been astonishing.

While Kobe’s life was cut short on earth, his legacy will live on forever.

RIP TheBlackMamba.

“You Should Be Ashamed Of Yourself Bleacher Report!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #55)

Bleacher Report published a list of the 50 Best NBA Players Of All-Time.

It’s the WORST list in the history of lists.

I’m also confident this list was made JUST to get attention.

No rational human being could have possibly constructed this list….

Monday….It’s Not ALL Bad

Monday.

The start of the week. The root of all evil — for some.

monday

Hey, dummy, instead of hating Mondays, why don’t you embrace the awesomeness it often provides.

LeBron

Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers - Game Four

Yes, I write about LeBron James a lot. See, it’s like when Michael Jordan was playing. Even though the Knicks fan in me hated MJ’s guts, I appreciated his greatness. I didn’t want him to retire (three times), but all careers come to an end. While I wish LeBron would don a Knicks’ uniform, and I don’t necessarily love him, I appreciate his greatness.

44 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals

He surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for most field goals in postseason history.

And he’s just two games away from his 8th consecutive NBA Finals appearance.

Just another day at the office.

The Cleveland LeBrons jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. They won the 1st quarter 34-18, and despite losing each following quarter, never relinquished the lead. 111-102 brings the Eastern Conference Finals to 2-2, and the momentum has fully shifted to the LeBrons. The Celtics will be happy to return home, as they’re just 1-6 on the road in the playoffs.

I’ll stick with my original prediction: LeBrons in six.

There’s Nothing Better Than A Game 7

Tampa Bay Lightning v Washington Capitals - Game Six

The Washington Capitals, the perennial disappointment, are looking to change history. Often lauded as Eastern Conference contenders, the Capitals repeatedly fail to live up to expectations. Prior to this season, the Capitals had lost in the 2nd round in three consecutive seasons. But Monday night, they forced a game 7, keeping their chance alive to return to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in 20 years. Not since the ’97-’98 season have the Capitals played in the Finals (they were swept 4-0 by the Detroit Red Wings).

Behind the strong play of goaltender, Braden Holtby (24 saves), and right wing, TJ Oshie (2 goals), the Capitals took down the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-0. With the Cinderella story, Las Vegas Golden Knights, waiting on the other side, the Capitals would be seeking their first Stanley Cup. But first, they must handle their business, on the road, in game 7.

Clear your schedule, and watch game 7. There’s nothing better. Trust me.

Wednesday, May 23rd @ 8:00 P.M. EST on NBCSN.

Juan Soto Thinks Age Is Just A Number

NationalsJuanSoto1stHR_1526951554275_5565556_ver1_0_640_360

I wonder what it’s like to be a Phenom. A 19-year old Phenom who jumped straight from Double-A to the Major Leagues overnight and hit a monster three-run home run in his 2nd ever MLB at-bat (1st pitch in 1st start).

World, Juan Soto. Juan Soto, world.

Naturally, since he plays for the Washington Nationals, Soto is already being compared to Bryce Harper. It’s fair, I guess, considering the list of 19-year olds to hit home runs in MLB history is rather short.

Soto is from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He’s currently the 15th ranked prospect in MLB. And he plays the outfield. Many expect Soto to have a long, fruitful career in the middle of the batting order. If he continues to show-off opposite field power, like this, he may very well do that….

LeBron

It’s LeBron James’ world, we’re just livin’ in it.

With his entire team securely on his back, LeBron took control. He took control of Game 5. And he took control of this series. And, in the midst of his utter domination, he reminded the world we haven’t seen this level of play in 20 years. Not since the ghost, Michael Jordan, has such greatness graced our eyeballs with its presence.

In a crucial Game 5, LeBron found himself down seven points at halftime, on his own court. He must have had some of “Michael’s Secret Stuff” during Tyronn Lue’s pep talk (haha), for he flipped a switch on his way out of the locker room.

LeBron’s 3rd quarter: 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists

LeBron James accomplishes in one quarter what mere mortals accomplish in an entire game. Up eight points heading into the 4th quarter, LeBron nearly coughed up another lead. But, with the game tied at 95, words can’t do the final sequence justice….

(Watch until the end of the video).

The block. The buzzer beating game-winner. And a mini, “Gatorade Bucket” celebration. Fitting for a King. 98-95. 3-2 LeBron. Since you clicked on that box score, you realized LeBron didn’t miss a free throw. 15-for-15. That’s the real reason they won (it certainly wasn’t JR Smith going 0-for-8).

Now, LeBron lovers, please don’t jump down my throat….

That block, by the rules, is goaltending. When the ball hits the backboard first, it’s goaltending. I know, I know. I’m a hater. I don’t like LeBron James. I should get my eyes checked by my doctor. OR, we can collectively understand that superstars get those calls (every once in a while). Did MJ push Byron Russell to free himself for the game-winner (the purest jump shot of all-time) in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals????

Of course he did!!!! But was it called?? NOPE. That’s this block. Sorry Victor Oladipo.

Like I said, it’s LeBron James’ world, we’re just livin’ in it.

 

Will LeBron close out this series, in Indiana, in Game 6?? Or, will it take Game 7 heroics to take down the Indiana Pacers?? Post your prediction in the comment section below.
