A Western Conference Roundup

By Spencer Bowen Post-draft and pre-free agency, let’s check in on the rest of the West’s chances to contend with the Warriors Grond-level Juggernaut. Pacific Los Angeles Clippers No Chris Paul but yes Blake Griffin (for now), the Clips exist in a kind of Bulls-esque contend-and-rebuild twilight zone that will probably prove disastrous. Jerry West…

What Could Have Been- The Sacramento Kings

By: Tyler Chuck The 2017 Sacramento Kings draft is being praised as one of the best drafts in the league in a draft that many consider to be the best since 1998.  Their haul of De’Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson, Harry Giles, and Frank Mason III is a huge overhaul for a team in need of…

Five Things Better than LaVar Ball

By Spencer Bowen Last week LaVar Ball transitioned from harmless hawker of ridiculously-priced shoes to distasteful villain. Ergo, the time has come for the journalistic juggernaut that is Antland Sports to destroy him. Because as Sean Connery knows, the pen is mightier. In an interview with Fox Sports radio personality Kristine Leahy, Papa Ball said…

Kanye 2020

Takes after seeing Kanye West by Spencer Bowen & Tyler Chuck Spencer: Friend: “So, how was Kanye?” Me: prolonged silence It’s really difficult to comprehend Kanye and describe Kanye and frame Kanye in a way that helps others understand Kanye. Let me be clear: I don’t think that I really understand Kanye. I don’t even…

The Real Big 3

By: Tyler Chuck This year, Independence Day was a bit like Christmas. I woke up every hour in the night, checking the Internet for Kevin Durant’s Player’s Tribune decision. When the decision came, it was everything I ever wanted. It was the Nintendo 64, Razor Scooter, and Transformer all in one. After an epic comeback…

The Psychology of DubNation

By: Tyler Chuck Almost. We just witnessed what will quite possibly go down as the most exhilarating Game 7 in NBA history. History and legacy were on the line. It was a Father’s Day. 31 million people tuned in.   Tied down the stretch. Then Kyrie’s three and it was over. The Dubs record-breaking season was…

The Sports Connection: What to Make of Oklahoma?

By Spencer Bowen Before tonight’s pivotal Game 6, I want to address what’s been happening in the state of Oklahoma. On May 19, the Oklahoma state legislature (a bicameral shindig) sent a bill criminalizing abortion to Governor Mary Fallin’s desk. Despite Fallin’s veto on the 20th, the passage of any such bill during OKC’s playoff…

The Not So Regular Season

By: Tyler Chuck The Golden State Warriors just completed the greatest season in NBA history. 73-9. The 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls have just been eclipsed by the 2015-2016 Dubs. Let that sink in for a moment. You could read countless lists of the incredible records this team has set—total wins, road wins, team three’s, etc. You…

The Bottom 10: All Star Game Jerseys and the Players Who Wore Them

By Josh Schiesl All-Star Games are supposed to be an outlet for showcasing the league’s most skillful players but there has been an unfortunate hilarious trend in online fan voting over the last few years where the completely wrong players are either being chosen as starters or close to chosen as starters. Major League Baseball…

New Year’s Resolutions

By: Tyler Chuck It’s that time of the year where people make a pledge to try something new. Popular resolutions include eating healthy, working out, reading, and saving money. Bleh. I prefer taking a minor league baseball road trip, leaving bad relationship behind, and trying the all bacon diet. Yum. You gotta live a little….

New Warriors Fan

By: Sarah Hoover Let me admit it, right from the get-go: I am not a diehard Warriors fan. I wasn’t watching during the “We Believe” years, nor was I around for the years when their twenty-eighth win didn’t come until April (or when 28 wins felt like a pipe dream… yikes, 2001!) I grew up…

From Curry to Kalamazoo: What Happened Between Warrior Losses

By: Tyler Chuck and Spencer Bowen The Golden State Warriors went a long time without losing a game, 185 days to be exact.  We chronicle some of the major events that happened between their losses. June 9, 2015: Game 3 of the NBA Finals.  The Warriors lose to the Cleveland Cavaliers by a score of…
