The NCAA is Garbage

The NCAA has recently changed their criteria on who can become an agent for kids looking to test their market for the NBA Draft. Before, any NBPA-certified agent could become an agent to a student-athlete looking to see if he’s ready for the draft. Now, the NCAA requires that the agent have a bachelor’s degree, certified by NBPA for a minimum of 3 years, and take an in-person exam in Indianapolis, where the NCAA office is located.

If you didn’t think the NCAA was garbage before this news came out, then I’m sorry but you need to hear this. THE NCAA ALREADY MAKES MILLIONS OFF KIDS WHO DON’T GET A PENNY AND GET PUNISHED WHEN THEY SELL STUFF TO GET MONEY FOR FOOD. And now, they want to attack agents, specifically Rich Paul?

After a turmoil-filled season loaded with injuries, drama, and franchise incompetence, the Los Angeles Lakers can finally say that they have another superstar in their prime to pair with LeBron James. Yesterday afternoon, the Lakers and Pelicans agreed to a deal that would send Anthony Davis to Los Angeles for Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, and three first round picks (including the fourth pick in Thursday’s draft). At first glance this feels like quite a lot for one player (because it is), but few players at Davis’s age and caliber are ever available in the trade market.

The Anthony Davis Saga

The NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and Anthony Davis is still a member of the New Orleans Pelicans. After asking for a trade January 28, ten days of drama ensued as Davis was immediately connected to the Los Angeles Lakers.  We heard endless amounts of information (as well as misinformation) from the main parties involved, and the hurricane of madness even hit the shores of Boston, instilling doubts about the future of Kyrie Irving.  My favorite part? LaVar Ball came out of the cave Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka (must have) paid him to stay in, and told the world LeBron James is nothing without his son Lonzo!
