Brady vs Colts Perspective

Ahhhh, Tom Brady taking the field against The Colts is a tale as old as time. From his first start against Peyton Manning to tonight against Andrew Luck, Tom Brady probably knows the Colts just as much as he knows the Patriots. He probably hates them more than anything for Deflategate (I’m not getting into that). But let’s take a shallow dip into Brady vs Colts. Continue reading “Brady vs Colts Perspective”

Where Will Jimmy Go?

Just when you think there should be no NBA drama, BAM, we have NBA drama.  In September, the NBA should be the equivalent to when you’re getting those last 15 minutes of sleep, soon ready for a day of work.  The streets are quiet, you can hear a pin drop, and within short order, the world will wake up around you.

Apparently Jimmy Butler did not get the memo, as he decided to hop in his car, drive 60 in a 35, sit on the horn of his car, and wake up the ENTIRE NBA.

And you know what, I could not be happier, because the NBA is at its best when there is maximum chaos, and Jimmy Butler just turned the chaos all the way up to 11! Continue reading “Where Will Jimmy Go?”

The Red Sox Bullpen

Yeah the Red Sox bullpen stats speak for itself 

The Red Sox are the best team in baseball (record wise). At the time of this blog, the team is an impressive 103-49. Having said that, there are still some things that make me feel uneasy about the Sox when it comes to the postseason.

The offense should do just fine if JD Martinez and Mookie Betts play at their usual MVP levels. I’m not even that worried about the starting rotation anymore, with Sale getting much needed rest, and Price finding his groove (despite that retched start against the Yankees last night).

But man, oh man, that bullpen has more problems than Ronnie from Jersey Shore.  Continue reading “The Red Sox Bullpen”

After a lengthy search for their next general manager, the Philadelphia 76ers have final made a decision, hiring… former (and current) 76er Elton Brand.

Brand the player finished his career on the court with Philadelphia in 2016.  After retiring, he transitioned to the front office of the 76ers as a player developmental consultant; after the 2016-2017 season, Brand was hired as the GM of the 76ers G-League affiliate, serving in that role for over one calendar year.

At 39, Brand will become one of the youngest GMs in the NBA.  The question everyone seems to be asking: is this coming too soon?  Well, lets explore. Continue reading “Next Step of The Process: GM Elton Brand”
