2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: New York Knicks

Ah, the New York Knicks. I have been a fan for a long time and it hasn’t been easy. From the days of Amar’e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, and Kristaps Porzingis, there were some moments where we thought they would be great but for most of my life, they have been terrible. 2018-19 was the case of another down year, going […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves have only made the NBA Playoffs once since 2005, back in 2018. Cleary, the franchise has not been in the winning ways. The 2018-19 season started off with Jimmy Butler wanting a trade and they ended up trading him the Philadelphia 76ers early in the year. The team also fired Tom Thibodeau midway through the season after […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Miami Heat

The Miami Heat are in the post-Dwayne Wade era. A lot of memories have happened in that arena since he was a franchise player for them. But the Heat believe they have found a filler in the gap with Jimmy Butler, one of the best two-way guards in the league. Even though he isn’t going to be just as spectacular […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

Last year was an unforgettable campaign for the Milwaukee Bucks, finishing first in the Central Division, and earning the number one overall seed in the Eastern Conference at 60-22. Over the past few years, Milwaukee has been a consistent playoff team, but they’ve usually finished in the middle of the pack. That was until NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and NBA […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies think they found their man in the draft this year by getting Ja Morant. Even though he didn’t go to a big name college like Zion Williamson, he still made a big impact on his team and brought them to the NCAA tournament. The rookie point guard out of Murray State is expected to do great things this […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers believe they have assembled the right pieces for finally get back on top and be the most dominant team in the league like they have been ever since the league has been assembled. The team, franchise, and fan base have been used to winning time and time again that this little wave of downplaying has gotten […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers took huge strides this off-season by acquiring Kawhi Leonard, who is arguably one of the best players in the league, fresh off of carrying the Toronto Raptors to the first NBA Championship in franchise history and winning finals MVP. They also brought in Paul George, who was in the MVP race this previous year and is […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Indiana Pacers

The Indiana Pacers have always been a team that has been a piece away from doing something great in the playoffs. They also have been going through a Cavs team that arguably had the best player in the world on their team, LeBron James. But with him gone this past year, they had a really good chance of actually making […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets are coming off of another short-lived season. They were eliminated in the playoffs in the Western Conference Finals for the second straight year. So it’s time for a change and that change is getting rid of Chris Paul and trading him to the Oklahoma City Thunder for another dominant player in Russell Westbrook. This wouldn’t be the […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors are still considered one of the best teams in the NBA, even with the loss of Kevin Durant due to free agency.  Don’t get me wrong, they are going into this next season as an underdog due to the loss of KD and to the devastating knee injury to Klay Thompson that had happened during the 2019 […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons had an average season, finishing with a perfect .500 record at 41-41. The team finished 8th in the Eastern Conference but ended up getting swept in the first round of the playoffs against the Milwaukee Bucks. The team had a lot of moving parts during the season but had a consistent trio of Andre Drummond, Blake Griffin, […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets were one of the more surprising teams last season. The team was at the top of the Western Conference for most of the season but not a lot of people were talking about them. They ended up with a 54-28 record, winning the Northwest Division and placing 2nd in the conference. Part of the success was the […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Dallas Mavericks

For the first time in 21 seasons, the Dallas Mavericks will not have Dirk Nowitzki on the court. Nowitzki was the face of the franchise, leading the Mavs to a 2011 title and is arguably one of the power forwards the game has seen. While the final season for Dirk was memorable, the Mavs, in general, they were still one […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

The next team in the NBA preview series is the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are long away from the LeBron James era and look to rebuild from the ground up. Cleveland started the 2018-19 season rough, firing Tyron Lue after an 0-6 start and having assistant coach Larry Drew being the replacement for the rest of the season. Losing a star […]


2019-2020 NBA Preview: Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have been trying to find a new identity ever since the wonderful Jordan era has sadly come to an end after their last championship run in 1998. As a fan and many others, we wish that era never came to an end and would still be winning championships as we speak. But with everything along with people, […]


2019-2020 NBA Team Preview: Charlotte Hornets

Since there return to Charlotte in 2004 (and when they were known as the Bobcats), the Charlotte Hornets only made the playoffs three times. 2018-2019 was another non-playoff season, finishing 39-43, which placed them 10th in the Eastern Conference. Of course, the big story for the franchise was Kemba Walker, who left the team via free agency after eight years […]
