Aaaaaaaaaaand we’re back! What a week, huh!? This week things are a bit in the form of a recap of the frenzy of moves in the NFL, as well as some basketball.  Who changed teams you ask? Nick Foles, Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., Earl Thomas, Tyrann Mathieu, Trey Flowers, Trent Brown, Olivier Vernon, Golden Tate, Mark Ingram, and many more. It’s okay, because when all of that was happening, Bill Belichick was on vacation without a care in the world, because that’s what winners do.  In other news, we hear more and more about the Lakers each day that paints them in a much worse light (LeBron TRADE RUMORS!?); the Rockets winning streak came to an end against the Warriors; Steve Kerr was caught ripping Draymond Green; Serge Ibaka decided to try to assault a Cleveland Cavalier; Buddy Hield decided to be Klay Thompson, only for Jaylen Brown to clap back and do the same thing in the same quarter (more on that later).

We’ve said enough, now to your preview for this upcoming week!

Welcome back to Who to Watch.  Congratulations to LeBron James, who passed Michael Jordan to move up to 4th overall on the all-time scoring list on Wednesday.  He is now 1,333 points away from passing Kobe Bryant for 3rd, 4,618 points points away from passing Karl Malone for 2nd, and 6,077 away from passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for 1st, and with the way he keeps his body in shape, he could be the all-time leading scorer in the NBA before it’s all said and done; too bad he won’t make the playoffs anytime soon (sorry Kerm).  In other news, the Celtics look like they came back to life this week, the Rockets look SCARY good (sitting pretty in the third seed out West), the Trail Blazers are pretty good themselves good (don’t tell Fredy) and Trae Young has been phenomenal.  There are some great playoff races in the NBA, such as the battle for seeds 3 through 5 in the East, the battle for the final three playoff spots in the East taking place between five teams, and the mess in the West for seeds 3 through 8, where only three and a half games separate all teams involved. Oh, and Antonio Brown was a Buffalo Bill for a few hours.

Upcoming we have a match between the Lakers and Celtics tomorrow night, college basketball conference tournaments will kick into high gear, and NFL free agency will begin next Wednesday.  Keep an eye out for all of that!

Here’s who you should be watching over the next week:

Welcome back to the world’s greatest weekly preview of professional sports which is released on Friday afternoons!

This past week, the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics continued to… disappoint (nice call on Gordon Hayward last week Nick… NOT).  Dywane Wade made an insane three-point shot to beat the Golden State Warriors, Kyler Murray was announced to be 5’10” Jason Witten decided to leave MNF and come back to the Dallas Cowboys, and Bryce Harper FINALLY chose a team, signing with the Phillies for THIRTEEN (13) YEARS AND $330 MILLION! SHEESH!

March is a great month for sports.  March Madness begins on the 19th, playoff races will only heighten in the NHL and NBA, the first games of the MLB season begin on the 20th, while the traditional Opening Day will be the 28th.  Hopefully it will finally stop snowing, but who knows; one step at a time.

Lets get down to business

Welcome back to WHO. TO. WATCH.

This past week we saw Steph Curry make an amazing bounce pass to Giannis, as well as D-Wade lob it up to LeBron James one last time.  Jayson Tatum threw up a half court heave to steal the Skills Challenge from Trae Young; Joe Harris won a competitive three-point contest, and Hamidou Diallo won the dunk contest with a great performance that included dunking over Shaq and jamming the ball (and his elbow) in the hoop.  In baseball, we FINALLY saw some action, as Manny Machado signed with the San Diego Padres (more on that shortly).  Barack Obama went to see UNC-Duke, and the Bruins continue to be on a torrid point streak, having won 7 straight games.  And finally… Robert Kraft finds himself in a sticky situation.

With basketball back, hockey in full swing, and baseball and March Madness around the corner, things are about to pick up… soon my friends.

Onto the last week of February.

What a week huh? Flacco to the Broncos was a personal favorite of mine (article coming out lat, check it out). Antonio Brown officially requested a trade from Pittsburgh because screw them right?

In NBA news, Kyrie and the Celtics just can’t catch a break without someone saying they’re back one week and the next week someone calling this season a dumpster fire. Which is it? Not as bad as the Lakers are doing right now, huh Kerm? Jokes aside, the all-star break is this weekend with the beloved Celebrity game kicking things off. Join us in watching players we think will shine this weekend! Continue reading “Who to Watch (February 15- February 21)”
