2017-2018 NBA’s TOP 100 PLAYERS (20-11)

Training camps are upon us, and with the newly shortened pre-season slates, we’re just about two and a half weeks from the real deal tip off. And if you’re not excited about opening night, Kyrie vs. Lebron, then you’re just not a real fan. TOP 100-91 PLAYERS TOP 90-81 PLAYERS TOP 80-71 PLAYERS TOP 70-61 PLAYERS TOP 60-51 PLAYERS TOP 50-41 PLAYERS TOP 40-31 PLAYERS TOP 30-21 PLAYERS 20. RUDY GOBERT – POST – UTAH JAZZ The evolution of Rudy Gobert continues this season. Last year saw Gobert crack the double-double average plateau with his scoring average creeping up above…

15 FANTASTICAL FANTASY FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS FOR THIS WEEKEND

I WOW, what a way to start NFL’s week 3. With a game that by all rights should have been uglier than that girl you hooked up with that one time on New Years at the Foundation Room (yeah I’m looking at you ____ ) on the schedule, the frog turned into a prince of a game. Jared Goff took steps to separate himself from the Blake Bortles dud crowd, and made the Rams feel much better about passing on Carson Wentz. It also initiated what I think is going to be a week known as the week of the…

2017-2018 NBA’s TOP 100 PLAYERS (30-21)

Fall is here, it wasn’t the cooler temps that tipped me off, it wasn’t the calendar, it was the line around the block at Starbucks, aka, Basic Bitch central, where all the soccer moms were gathering for their pumpkin spice whatchamacallits. Shorter days, cooler temps, and more sports to watch. Myself, I’ll be making my own little Olive Garden tomorrow, homemade pasta sauce with meatballs, Zupa Tuscana Soup, and a nice lemon desert, all the while watching football. I hope wherever you are you’re able to do the same. Top 91-100 Players Top 81-90 Players Top 71-80 Players Top 61-70…

2017 NBA’s TOP 100 PLAYERS (40-31)

Less than a month away from tip off, we’re coming into the cream of the crop section of the rankings. You’ll see some “controversial” rankings, especially with concern to some of the fantastic point guards in the league. You’ll see more than 1 Raptor and more than a couple of Huskies, of all kinds. Players Ranked 100-91 Players Ranked 90-81 Players Ranked 80-71 Players Ranked 70-61 Players Ranked 60-51 Players Ranked 50-41   40. BRADLEY BEAL – WING – WASHINGTON WIZARDS Bradley Beal, number 40 with a bullet! Last season was the first of 5 seasons were Beal didn’t miss…

2017-2018 NBA’s TOP 100 PLAYERS (50-41)

The top 50, that’s nothing to sneeze at. On average each team should be represented 1.7 times in the final 50. Of course, not all teams are created equal. But consider saying that not even the top 2 players on each squad makes the top 50 and you start to realize how elite these players are. We’ve gone over the top 51-100 already, but if you need to review: Players 100-91 Players 90-81 Players 80-71 Players 70-61 Players 60-51   50. BROOK LOPEZ – POST – LOS ANGELES LAKERS One of the more underrated moves of the off season, the…

Friday evening, fight weekend in Las Vegas, what wild shit are we gonna get into tonight? Well that’s easy, we’re going deep into the top 100 players in the NBA, specifically who falls into slots 51-60. It’ll be wet, it’ll be wild, and it’ll be oh so good. So double bag it, get the plan B ready for tomorrow morning, get some baby powder to help with the leather chaffing, its about to get hot, raw, and messy up in here. 100-91 Top Players 90-81 Top Players 80-71 Top Players 70-61 Top Players   60.

2017-2018 NBA’s TOP 100 PLAYERS (70-61)

As the NFL’s season kicked off tonight, its another reminder that the NBA season is just around the corner, its also a reminder that if your favorite NBA team made significant off season moves (I’m looking at you Boston, Cleveland, Houston, Oklahoma City, and Minnesota) that it may take a while for the potential returns on those moves to come to fruition. Patience is a virtue not often found in masses of sports fans, but if you can muster it, you’ll save yourself a lot of early season heart ache as chemistry and rotations aren’t exactly where you’d like them…

WELL THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY

The banner had been revealed, Roger Goodell had been booed off the field, and crazy train was still echoing around Foxborough when the Patriots systematically marched down the field to take a quick 7-0 lead to open the 2017 NFL season. On the ensuing Kansas City possession, third round pick Kareem Hunt out of Toledo coughed the ball up on his first touch. Those first few minutes were the film negative of how the remaining portion of the game unfurled. The end result of which was what felt like the 2014 pounding that jumpstarted the run for the Patriots’ 4 Lombardi Trophy.…

YOUR CLIFF NOTES NFL PREVIEW

ITS HERE! Today is the day the Patriots raise their 5th banner, and Stephen Gostkowski kicks off to D’Anthony Thomas to open the 2017 NFL season (because you know the Pats will defer if they win the toss). You’ll find here a quick run down of how the season will play out. So if you plan on canceling your television services for the next 5 months, or going into a medically induced coma and wont be able to catch the games this season, you’ve come to the right place! Lets take a look at the standings in the NFC: EAST New…

2017-2018 NBA’s TOP 100 PLAYERS (80-71)

Its a big week in sports, NFL’s opening week, the New York Times accusing the Red Sox of cheating, Roger Federer upset in U.S. Open action, and we move deeper into the You’re Ducking Right’s NBA top 100! Yeah, we’re not too excited about tennis either. We’ll get right into it, we know what you’re here for, the meat and potatoes. But first, in case you missed it, here are links to the prior installments: Players 100-91 Players 90-81   80.
