Sacramento Kings: Cousins needs some help

The Sacramento Kings are slowly falling out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference. If you asked me earlier this year who would be the 8th seed in the West, the Utah Jazz would definitely have come to mind, but Sacramento also stood out too. They bolstered their team so much in the off-season, or so I thought. Granted, their record is 21-30, which isn’t that bad in the...

Rose and Butler are building blocks for the Chicago Bulls

The Bulls currently are struggling to stay afloat in the Eastern Conference and have shown no signs of improvement. They now hold a record of 27-23 and are in sixth place in the conference. At this point, moving players like Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah, before the trade deadline, is very possible. In spite of this though, Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler have been absolutely great. Over...

It is just all bad for the Chicago Bulls

I have very fond moments of the Chicago Bulls, but as of late, love is the last feeling I want to express in regards to this team. Opponents day by day are dismantling this Bulls squad. They lost to the Denver Nuggets and Minnesota Timberwolves, which speaks volumes. Implosion is only a matter of time as the front office and players can only suppress their disgruntlement for so...

Who’s got the glue on the Minnesota Timberwolves

Since 2004, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been in constant rebuild mode, trying to find a way back into the playoffs to no avail. This year however, was supposed to be different. This year, they were supposed to be the dark horse team in the west, the surprise team that everybody knew about, but none saw coming. Instead, it has been more of the same. Inconsistency, poor defense...

Was firing Jeff Hornacek the wrong move for the Suns?

It’s been a long, arduous season for the Phoenix Suns, and anyone who is still loyal enough to call themselves a fan. If the firing of head coach, Jeff Hornacek, earlier this week wasn’t enough, one had the opportunity to hear a funny, albeit savagely truthful, Charles Barkley rant on how bad it’s looking in Phoenix these days. It’s been a mere three years of coaching for...

Detroit Tigers: Can Shane Greene bounce back in 2016

At the beginning of the 2015 season, right handed starter Shane Greene looked like an absolute steal for the Detroit Tigers. He began the season winning his first 3 games and allowing just 1 earned run during those 3 games. Then the wheels began to come off. Over his next 3 games he gave up a combined 20 earned runs. Greene became so consistently bad that he was demoted to AAA Toledo...

Arizona Coyotes: Louis Domingue excels in Mike Smith’s absence

The Arizona Coyotes look to be without starting goaltender Mike Smith for at least another month. Smith is still rehabbing from an abdomen surgery he underwent in mid-December. For most teams on the playoff bubble, not having their starting goaltender down the stretch would be a death knell. But with rookie goalie Louis Domingue in net, the Coyotes still have a fighting chance. Domingue...

New York Yankees: Greg Bird likely out for the season

A question that the New York Yankees needed to answer entering spring training was: where would first baseman Greg Bird fit into their 2016 plans? With Mark Teixeira recuperating and Alex Rodriguez firmly entrenched as the team’s everyday DH, Bird would’ve likely been a part-time player for the Yanks who could fill in for either of those players if they got injured. Now, however...
