Magic Johnson Steps Down as Lakers President of Basketball Operations

Who expected this!? No one! Look, he was already doing a bad job, but even then, I didn’t expect him to quit now!

Magic got the job in February of 2017. He started with dumping the 2nd pick of the 2015 N (who just brought the Nets to the playoffs after 4 years). Then, drafting a future Point Guard of his liking: Lonzo Ball. Unfortunately though, Ball has had some injuries that have taken him out of commission for weeks or months at a time so he’s never actually had time to progress or evolve into a player the Lakers want. It’s been only 2 years so I wouldn’t worry much now. But I guess Magic couldn’t wait. Continue reading “Magic Johnson Steps Down as Lakers President of Basketball Operations”

April 15.

Yes, that is the deadline to file your taxes (DON’T MAKE THE IRS MAD FOLKS!), but it is also the deadline that Russell Wilson has given the Seattle Seahawks for a new contract.

Settle Down Antonio Brown

The Oakland Raiders’ new $50 million (mildly schizophrenic?) wide receiver is still going at the Steelers, in particular, JuJu Smith-Schuster.

JuJu recently won Steeler of the Year for the 2018 season, and his former diva teammate had a problem with it when a fan brought it up on Twitter. Continue reading “Settle Down Antonio Brown”

Okay, I am going to say this right off the bat: Dwyane Wade had a better career than Paul Pierce.

Did everyone get that? Did everyone see I wrote that? Are we good? Okay, good.

As we saw on Friday night, Paul Pierce lit a fire when he said he had a better career than Dwyane Wade. Before we go any further, I just want you to hear Pierce’s logic: Continue reading “Paul Pierce vs. Dwyane Wade”

Who To Watch (April 5 – April 11)

Hi everyone, and welcome back to Who to Watch.

Here’s our recap: in baseball, Bryce Haper made Nick look like an idiot, looking like a bona fide superstar last week; the Red Sox look… not good, Christian Yelich is hitting lots of dingers, Daniel Hess of the Orioles was pulled during a PERFECT GAME, and somehow, the SEATTLE MARINERS are the best team in the league at 7-1. In college hoops, the Men’s Final Four will feature Virginia, Auburn, Michigan State, and Texas Tech, and we will see a champion crowned on Monday night. On the women’s side, Oregon will face Baylor, while UCONN will face Notre Dame, that championship game will be Sunday. In NBA news, we saw Russell Westbrook have a historic triple-double (more on that from Kerm), Anthony Davis get fined for giving a fan the finger (have to figure they’ll all flip him the bird during the last home game of the season), and Giannis had a casual 45/13/6 performance last night. OKC and the Spurs clinched playoff spots, and seeding is still shaking itself out in the West. In the East, there is still a seeds 3 through 5 are still not set, but much more interesting is the battle for seeds 6 through 8, which essentially looks like a four-team battle between Detroit, Brooklyn, Orlando and Miami; those teams are separated by just one game.

Before we give everyone the rundown for the next week, we at Hold My Drink Sports just want to take a moment to give our respects to Nipsey Hussle, who was killed last Sunday. Our thoughts go out to his loved ones during this difficult time.
