Since 1959, the Boston Celtics have faced the Lakers in the NBA Finals 12 times, most recently in 2010.

It’s a rivalry that helped save the NBA in the 1980s, and was revitalized just a decade ago, as the teams faced each other in the finals twice in three seasons. With a combined 33 championships between the two franchises, the Celtics and Lakers are considered the premier teams in basketball… and now a new battle is ensuing.

Who to Watch (January 11 – January 17)

Welcome back to this week’s Who to Watch.  Last week we saw some low-scoring football (the Colts-Texans game actually but my grandmother to sleep, and she generally likes football), the Celtics looked phenomenal at home, and Trevor “Sunshine” Lawrence and the Clemson Tigers SMACKED Alabama to win their second college football championship in three seasons.  Seattle’s offense looked archaic against Dallas, Cody Parkey’s kick was blocked at the end of the Eagles-Bears game, capping off a 16-15 Eagles upset, and Deshaun Watson lost a football game by more than a touchdown for the first time since high school. It looks like the 76ers have some turmoil going on with Jimmy Butler, and the Minnesota Timberwolves fired Thibs (but it’s okay, because Fred Hoiberg looks to be the favorite to land the job, meaning the TimberBulls will survive another day!)

Alright, this week he have the divisional playoffs, and the NBA has reached it’s halfway point.  Should be some good games across the board.

Andy is back this week, which means you’ll get FIVE buy and sell picks this week!

Enjoy!

Who to Watch (January 4 – January 10)

HELLOOOOO EVERYBODY! Welcome to 2019, and welcome back to Who to Watch! While you were away, the NFL playoff picture took form, Kirk Cousins played like absolute crap, and Antonio Brown became a BIG problem.  Nick Foles looks like he’s ready to defend his title, Mahomes capped off a stellar season by throwing 50 TDs and over 5000 yards, and Travis Kelce broke the record for most receiving yards by a tight end in one season… only to be broken less than 3 hours later by George Kittle.  James Harden is having an all-time great stretch, and Paul George is still playing amazing.  LeBron is hurt, the Celtics are still not right, and some Memphis Grizzlies’ are fighting with each other.

Alright.

One more thing: new to 2019, we’re replacing the “Good” and “Bad” categories with “Buy” and “Sell,” which we think gives us more range in the players we pick on a week-to-week basis.

Lets go!

Andy is still on vacation, but he’ll be back with a preview of the NFL Wild Card games tomorrow!

Who to Watch (December 21 – December 27)

Happy Friday everyone! Since we last met, the Patriots lost to the Steelers, and the Celtics are in the midst of a 2-game losing streak.  Paul George and James Harden are going nuclear, while LeBron James was blocked (which according to Max Kellerman, means he’s done).  Josh Gordon hit a road block on the road to recovery (we wish him well), and Tom Brady might have an MCL tear.  As the NFL season makes its way towards a conclusion, it is playoff scenario season, as 14 teams are vying for the 7 remaining playoff spots in the league.  And finally, next Tuesday is Christmas Day, which means TONS of great basketball.

With that, allow us at Hold My Drink Sports to wish you a wonderful holiday season.

Andy is away this week in Minnesota, so we have Mike (who made his debut to the page this past week) filling in for him.

The NBA is approximately one third through its 2018-2019 season – and since this comes up every year – I figured I would get out ahead of the noise and check up on which conference has the right to claim supremacy so far.
