No. I understand that Donovan Mitchell played his heart out. I just so happen to have a strict criteria on what is required to be a superstar.
There are too many people willing to give the title of superstar to just about anyone who scores a lot of points, and I for one will not stand for it.
The facts are the facts.
Coming into the season nobody in their right mind expected the Utah Jazz to have the best record in the NBA.
Not a single soul.
And even when they exceeded everyone’s expectations no one in their right…
Knicks’ fans, your time has come!!!!
No words can describe how much joy this next statement gives me.
It absolutely warms my heart in seeing the Knicks fall short after the fanbase overhyped them for 82 games.
I knew the imminent disappointment was on its way, and I simply couldn’t wait. I was waiting, itching, salivating, and losing sleep over the chance to write an article about the New York Knicks inevitable downfall.
I was just writhing with pure and utter passion at the fact that I knew that the Knicks again would sell out when the fans needed them…
You casual fans need to stop it.
Just a few months ago Jimmy Butler was a superstar and the Miami Heat was a “legitimate” Eastern Conference champion.
I’ve mentioned before in several articles that we all need to take the results of the bubble with a grain of salt.
That season had a ton of unique circumstances, the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
I actually wrote about the Miami Heat being a fluke earlier this season. Read that article here:
Lo and behold the bubble produced outcomes that could not be sustained. …
He’s not. He actually gets an unnecessary bad wrap.
I would hate to live in a world where a player who can defend all 5 positions, be one of the most gifted passers in the league, and can virtually do everything well besides shoot be called a bad basketball player.
Imagine being top tier in every category besides one, and people are calling you bad.
Let’s break down some of the reasons why some people have the audacity to call Ben Simmons bad.
It is abundantly clear that Simmons’ glaring weakness is his shooting ability, or lack thereof. I have…
A great man once said, “hold up wait a minute, y’all thought I was finished?“ Outside looking in, it may look like I’m picking on the Wizards because just last week I ridiculed Russell Westbrook harshly.
Check out that article here:
And now here we are talking about his All-Star teammate Bradley Beal. If I ridiculed one for the lack of team success, then I have to ridicule both.
It’s only fair.
For years Bradley Beal was called underrated and overlooked because he put up big numbers on a losing team. …
I honestly hate writing pieces like this. For the longest time I was such a strong advocate for Russell Westbrook. I even wrote about him check that article out here:
It’s frustrating defending a player that does not improve, and is so unwilling to improve. It truly breaks my heart to see Westbrook and the Wizards struggle like this.
For the longest time Russell Westbrook has been berated and ridiculed for his style of play. …
Superteam this, superteam that, everybody likes to talk about superteams.
LeBron fans love to criticize the move that Kevin Durant made to Golden State, and like to criticize what the Nets have been doing recently. What so many of them fail to realize is who started this trend to begin with.
Newsflash that person was LeBron Raymone James Sr. (And yes, that is his real middle name.)
Every time I bring this FACT to LeBron fan’s attention, they quickly rebuttal with “well the Celtics were a superteam, they did it first!!”
Another classic example of casual LeBron fans with recency…
Chris Paul does not nearly get enough credit. He is easily a top 10 point guard of all time and yet the impact that he has on teams still seems to get overlooked.
During these past two seasons Chris Paul has really shown me a lot, and what he has accomplished over these past two seasons needs to be magnified.
When Paul was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, an overwhelming number of people believed that the Thunder would end up a lottery team that season including myself.
What should we have expected from a 34 year old point guard…
Most would say that it is fairly obvious that Jayson Tatum is the Celtics best player, but too many nights it doesn’t seem that way.
With a talent as great as Tatum it should be abundantly clear that he is their best player, but some games it seems as though Kemba Walker or Jaylen Brown is their best player.
I wrote an article on why I believe the Celtics should either get rid of Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown. Read that article here:
This season the Celtics have underperformed, as they are currently under .500 …
The Utah Jazz currently have the best record in the NBA and yet no one is taking them as a serious championship threat. Why is that?
Years ago I falsely predicted Donovan Mitchell becoming a superstar.
I was wrong about that, but it is clear that Mitchell has improved since then. Even with the improvement, most would categorize Mitchell as a star, not superstar.
I know a lot of people have different definitions of what they consider a superstar to be. I actually briefly went over the term superstar in this article here:
Just to reiterate my definition, a superstar…
Interesting NBA topics that are overlooked.... but here they’re brought to light.
