NBA Playoffs Predictions Round 2: Celtics Should Not Fear The Deer

Well, my Round 1 predictions are pretty much spot on except for the Thunder-Blazers series where everyone, including me, picked OKC to win. My reason was that Jusuf Nurkic is too big a piece to lose in the playoffs and Enes Kanter is light years away defensively compared to Nurk. However, I did not know Damian Lillard can do this. Or this. In Portland's case, I have never been happier to be proven wrong. OK, so let's move to the next round and let's see what's going on. Here are my NBA Playoffs Read More

2016 NBA Fantasy Team Outlook: Philadelphia 76ers

For the first time in like forever, something positive is brewing in Philadelphia. And no, I don't mean the tank fest. (Although with probably a five-horse race for the top overall pick next year, that's not entirely a bad idea.)
But yeah, let's forget about the 10-72 record last season or the 18-64 slate from the season before. While they still figure to be one of the worst teams in the league, the excitement surrounding Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Dario Saric is warranted. These three are the Read More
