Welcome back to Who To Watch!

Before we begin, we want to share some news: this will be our last Who To Watch. We brought this series to you as a way to inform readers who to keep an eye on in the various leagues that were playing during a given time. However, as the NHL season could be over as early as Sunday, and the NBA season could be over by next Thursday, we feel as though it would be redundant to repeatedly write about baseball players all summer. With this in mind, this series will be taking the next few months off. You can still find other great content on our blog, which will bring fresh perspectives to you the reader, something we will continue to strive to accomplish moving forward.

We hope that you have enjoyed this series thus far (we have enjoyed sharing our talented writers and their views with you!), and that when we start up again in the coming months, you will continue to read what we have to say from this weekly post.

With that in mind, here is our last Who To Watch of the summer, featuring Fredy, Mike, and Nick.

BREAKING NEWS: Brooklyn Nets clear A BUNCH of Salary

A huge move just took place, as the Brooklyn Nets traded Allen Crabbe and his $18.5 million of salary to the Atlanta Hawks.

For a team tied to free agents like Kyrie Irving, and looking to secure their own players (i.e. D’Angelo Russell), this is BIG NEWS. Continue reading “BREAKING NEWS: Brooklyn Nets clear A BUNCH of Salary”

An Ideal Offseason

We are just weeks away from one of the most high-stakes offseasons in recent memory. Typically it takes a move from LeBron James to shift the balance of the NBA, but with players like Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, and more (Bradley Beal?) on the verge of changing teams, we could see a completely new league very shortly.

Houston, We Have A Problem

The Rockets have been one of the teams these past 5 years to be a casualty of the machine that is the Golden State Warriors again and again.

Since 2014-2015, the Rockets have faced Golden State in the postseason four times, and been eliminated by them each time. Houston held a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference Finals a year ago against the Warriors, and were tied against them in the second round this year, but each time Golden State was able to win the series.

They have been the Warriors most consistent rival all these years, and one of the two teams in the Western Conference to have had been one game away from beating them, but it has not happened; they cannot get over the hump.

Who To Watch (May 31 – June 6)

Welcome back everyone!

Bit of a slow week in the office since we last met, right? Well, not exactly. We saw the Toronto Raptors cap of a comeback from being down 2-0 against the Milwaukee Bucks, winning the Eastern Conference Finals in 6 games. Oh yeah, we ALSO saw Toronto take Game 1 of the NBA Finals, their first Finals game in franchise history.  Pascal Siakam looked spectacular, and Toronto did a great job limiting the potent Warriors offense; folks, I think we actually have a legitimate series here. In the NHL, the Stanley Cup Finals began, as the Boston Bruins faced off against the St. Louis Blues. Boston took Game 1, while the Blues won Game 2 in OT; this also looks like another great series in the making. We’ll continue to have championship games occur over the next week, as well as baseball, which is roughly one-third of the way through. In case you were wondering, the Minnesota Twins (you read that right) have the best record in baseball, as they currently stand at 37-18. Christian Yelich leads baseball with 21 home runs as he makes a strong case for a second straight NL MVP. Domingo German leads baseball in wins with 9.

Alright, on to what to look for during the next week, as we enter the warmth of June.

Who To Watch (May 24 – May 30)

Welcome back to Who To Watch!

We apologize for not being able to post last week (forgive us, we are very busy college students!) but we are back and better than ever this week!

Since we last met, we have seen three teams advance to the championship round of their respective sport: the Boston Bruins, St. Louis Blues, and Golden State Warriors. This is nothing new for the Warriors, who are going to the NBA Finals for the 5th straight season. The Bruins are going to the Stanley Cup Finals for the third time this decade (first time since 2013). The Blue… the last time the Blues went to the Stanley Cup Finals was back in 1970… against the Boston Bruins (you might remember a very famous picture of Bobby Orr flying through the air from that series).

In terms of teams still playing, we just saw Toronto beat the Bucks to take a 3-2 series lead. For a team that looked like they might be down for the punch after last Friday, the Raptors were able to prevail in double OT in Game 3, win with ease in Game 4, and pull out a victory in Game 5; are we on the verge of seeing a Canadian franchise in the NBA Finals for the first time in the history of basketball?

Well, we’ll find out on next week’s edition of Who To Watch!
