Remembering Kobe Bryant

The loss of Kobe Bryant caught everyone off guard. For my generation, we will always talk about where we were when we heard that Kobe died. That shows just how much he meant to us and our basketball dreams. Everyone wanted to be like Kobe. He was our Michael Jordan. Whether you were a Kobe fan or not, ...

Raptors comeback reveals Pacers biggest weakness

The Pacers were up ten with 2:27 left in the second quarter. What happened next was damning for Indy’s season.  Pascal Siakam spearheaded the deadly Raptors press, which proceeded to not allow any points for the rest of the game, allowed one shot attempt, and forced four turnovers in that time span. ...

OPINION: What if the Knicks landed Masai Ujiri?

As I am currently writing this, it is Friday, February 14, 2020--Valentine’s Day. During lunch today when I was scrolling through Twitter, I saw a tweet that was so relatable I laughed out loud. “You’re abusive. You disappoint (often). You don’t always listen. You make me feel like crap. But, ...

Considering the Colts: Is the season finally over?

After falling to Tampa Bay, all playoff hopes are virtually gone. The only hope is to win out and get a lot of help from other teams. The unfortunate thing for the Colts is that they face a top-tier NFC team in the New Orleans Saints. At the Superdome. On Monday Night.  I would like to think the Colts ...

NBA Hot Takes I Kind of Believe

Hot takes are the media currency of the day, but it’s hard to fully believe any hot take. That being said, you can talk yourself into some of them, and this is going to be my attempt to reconcile these takes with myself. Without further ado:   Malcolm Brogdon is a top 5 point guard   Case ...

Lindsey Froehlich: flipping the script of IUPUI volleyball

The list for recruiting is short and selective for first-year head volleyball coach Lindsey Froehlich. The list is small on purpose for the sake of getting players that fit into Coach Froehlich and assistant coach Morgan Salow’s system, but Rachel Crumrin flipped the script and recruited IUPUI instead. ...

NBA What-If Wednesday, Part 3

Unlike the NFL, basketball fans have a whole week to talk about how bad or good our teams are. The teams we are looking at now have some of the all-time “good stats, bad team” guys and are also a few steps away from becoming good. The teams I’m giving an upgrade to are the Grizzlies, the Bulls, ...

Considering the Colts: classic overreaction reigns again in Indy

Word on the street is that the Colts’ season is over. I hate counting teams out especially if they have a chance to pull something out and make the playoffs, but the situation the Colts are in right now does not show much promise.  After losing two straight division games to Houston and Tennessee, ...

Happy Wednesday and welcome back to another edition of What-if Wednesday: NBA Edition. If you didn’t read that in a deep voice, you missed my point of adding NBA Edition.

Considering the Colts: Indy drops pivotal game

Houston was finally able to get over the hump and beat the Colts in Houston. Even though the Texans have taken control of the division, hope is not all lost for the Colts.

Pacers Report Card through November

The Pacers can easily be mistaken for an infirmary at this point, as most of their players have missed games because of various injuries.

Hoosier State Hoops: First week thoughts on IU

The Indiana Hoosiers are one young team, and the “cupcake” games show that they are blowing teams out. However, I think the expectations and what we have seen from Indiana need to take a pause.  Justin Smith has been dominating in his first couple of games. His energy, hustle and discipline helped ...
