The never ending roller coaster that is DeMarcus Cousins’ career is taking another turn. Cousins has been bouncing around the league from contender to contender after his departure from Sacramento and his devastating injuries. He seemed to have found a place to stay in Houston alongside John Wall. Cousins looked like he was returning to form with the Rockets who had just recently guaranteed his contract through the remainder of the 2020–21 season.

Shortly after his contract became fully guaranteed, he and the Rockets decided to mutually part ways. Now, a fully healthy DeMarcus Cousins is back on the market…

The Chicago Cubs announced that they have signed free agent pitchers, Jake Arrieta and Pedro Stop. Arrieta’s deal is of the major league variety with a mutual option in 2022. Strop is brought back on a minor league deal and will have to earn a spot on the major league roster.

Last night, LeBron and the Lakers took on James Harden, Kyrie Irving and the Nets in what could have been an NBA Finals Preview… (Unless the Jazz have anything to say about it). The Lakers were handicapped playing without Anthony Davis and the Nets were without Kevin Durant. Although both teams were missing key pieces, it was still a fun game to watch and analyze which team may get the better of the other in a 7 game NBA Finals Series.

LeBron and the Lakers, like many teams around the league have not seen as much…

We are just about two full months into what has been an eventful 2020–21 NBA Season. Coronavirus has made its mark on the league as it has plagued a majority of the 30 NBA franchises. We have seen the NBA’s health and safety protocols come into question. We have seen some teams and individual players perform well above and well below expectations. And we have seen depleted and even full officiating crews decide the outcome of games with questionable calls.

It looked like the NBA may pause the season earlier in January due to Coronavirus cases popping up across the…

The projected #1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Trevor Lawrence showed off his strong arm during his personal Pro Day last week. The Clemson star made a few noteworthy throws albeit in an empty field with no pressure coming at him. There is no denying the sheer arm strength and potential that he has going into the NFL. He will most likely pair up with Head Coach, Urban Meyer in Jacksonville if things go as expected.

However, after Trevor Lawrence’s impressive showing in front of NFL personnel, he will undergo surgery for a torn labrum on his non-throwing…

As the world knows by now, Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a victory in Super Bowl 55. His first season in the NFC and Brady does what many elite quarterbacks have not failed to do in route to his 7th Super Bowl title. A very impressive feat for the 43 year old signal caller who is not ready to call it quits. He will be back next season and look to have his eyes on a repeat performance in Tampa.

After any Championship victory comes the victory parade. The Buccaneers took a page out of their hockey…
