The Round Up

The Blue Devils Wagon
Zion Williamson Black Nike Duke Jersey
RJ Barrett Black Nike Duke Jersey

Barrett’s ceiling is that of an elite playmaking small forward in the NBA and Williamson is a 285 pound wrecking ball that demolishes every rim in sight. Zion and RJ are projected to go 1-2 in the 2019 NBA draft and could be right up there with Hill-Laettner era Duke, Anthony Davis-MKG Kentucky team and the Michigan Fab Five for best combos in college basketball history.

 

Christian Yelich Pinstripes Majestic Milwaukee Brewers Jersey

2018 was quite a year for Yelich. 36 dingers, a triple slash line of .326/.402/.598 and a National League MVP. Yelich is so hot right now. Baker Mayfield certainly thinks so.

The throwback Brewers look is the only way to go and pinstripes always play. This jersey is an overall win.

Karl Malone Purple Adidas Classics Utah Jazz Jersey

The 90’s were jam-packed with stars and the Mail Man can often times get lost in the shuffle. He’s a two-time MVP, he’s made the All-NBA First team 11 times and is second all-time in NBA scoring with 36,928 points (25 PPG). But in a decade with all-time greats like Jordan, Hakeem, Robinson, Barkley, Pippen, Drexler, Ewing, Miller, Stockton and Shaq it can be tough to stand out. Nothing screams 90s like a purple Malone or Stockton jersey, even if they couldn’t get over the hump and beat MJ for a championship.

Tom Brady Red Alternate Nike New England Patriots Jersey

As I’ve mentioned in the past, the red Patriots jerseys are so much cooler than the grey on navy look that they insist on. And yeah I guess Brady is the GOAT…

Auston Matthews Blue Adidas Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey

This is the second Matthews jersey posted this year and I want them to keep on coming! He has 19 goals in 23 games… This guy is unreal.

Remember when the 2016 Draft was framed as “will the Leafs choose the elite center or the elite goal-scorer?” Well Matthews ended up being both. At 21 years-old Matthews is already one of the best goal scorers in the NHL. For once it’s a good time to be a Leafs fan.

Deron Williams Black Adidas Brooklyn Nets Jersey

The end of D-Will’s NBA career took a bit of a hit with the mediocre last few seasons of his career. In his prime he was a top five point guard in the league. He was a notch below Chris Paul and Steve Nash.

I’d rock a Williams jersey, although a Utah Jazz or a New Jersey Nets jersey would bring a bit more punch than a Brooklyn one.

Arizona State Hockey Jersey

After years of club hockey in the ACHA, the Arizona State Sun Devils have been a Division 1 NCAA program since 2015. While they are Independent and don’t belong to a conference, the 12-6 Sun Devils are the 15th ranked team in college hockey with what is already their highest win total since joining the NCAA. Undrafted 22 year-old forward Johnny Walker leads the nation in goals with 17 in 19 games. Walker and teammateTyler Busch were on the Spittin Chiclets podcast last month and talked all things Sun Devils hockey. It’s a good listen so check it out if you haven’t already:

Jersey Dump

Week 17 is coming in hot and everyone is scoreboard watching. I for one don’t want to see the Steelers and that moron Ben Roethlisberger make it. I just want a playoff spot come down to a hail Mary or some sort of play that includes 8 laterals. Bring on the madness.

Cowabunga

I kind of want a Kalil Mack Bulls jersey now.

Young Sheldon over here oversold this collision. As someone who couldn’t be further from courtside lifestyle, sorry if I don’t feel sorry for this little punk.

 

Warriors, Spurs, Rockets and Jazz Move On: NBA Western Conference Playoff Recap and Round 2 Preview

The Recaps

(1) Golden State Warriors vs. (8) Portland Trail Blazers: 4-0 Warriors

There really isn’t too much to be said about this series. The Warriors were the Warriors and they blazed a trail through the heart of the Trail Blazers. It’s unfortunate that the Blazers found themselves shorthanded–with starting centre Jusuf Nurkic sidelined with a fractured leg–in a matchup that was already of “David and Goliath” proportions from the beginning. The Trail Blazers have an excellent scoring tandem of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, but they were probably matched up against the only backcourt in the Western Conference that is better then them. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were just too much for them to handle. The X-factor in this series was clearly the Golden State’s Draymond Green. He was at the top of his game making an incredible impact with efficient shooting and playmaking, while demonstrating his Defensive Player of the Year calibre skillset. He stuffed the box score the entire series. Read more

The Non-All Star Team

After hearing Thursday’s All Star roster announcements, I was tempted to write about my own picks for the mid-season exhibition. But after looking at the list, I realized that I don’t have any problems with the reserves. The only issues I had were with Wade and Kobe starting, but at this point the starters are set. I’m not going to make a team and pretend that the vote for the starting lineup just didn’t happen. So me being the All-Star snub of everyday life, it occurred to me that I should craft a team that is the best of the rest. An “All-Snubs Team”. The other guys.
