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?

The Knicks not Playing on Christmas is a Blessing

For any basketball fan, or NBA fan in general, Christmas is a special day. Presents, family, and food. Now add in 5 NBA games and you got yourself something to watch the entire day while enjoying your family and presents.

Anthony Davis Gets His Wish

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.

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
