Let’s Start Forming Some More NBA Superteams

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. More superteams is the best way to fix the NBA. These past NBA Playoffs were horrible. No more than 10 total games were competitive or interesting. The Warriors lost 1 single game. Some people think that Golden State and Cleveland forming their superteams is to blame for the lack of competitiveness and it’s hard to argue. So in my opinion the best way fix this is to fight fire with fire. Let’s form more superteams. 

That’s right. Let’s make like 6 or 7 superteams. Chris Paul to Houston is a great start. The Rockets now have two top their players and a great shooting supporting cast. Is it enough to take down the Warriors in a best of 7 series? Probably not. But it might at least be interesting to watch now. 

So now let’s see what we can do to bring success to some other teams. Blake Griffin, you’re going to Oklahoma City to help reigning MVP Russell Westbrook. Paul George and Gordon Hayward are going to look great in Celtic green. Those two make Boston a legitimate threat to challenge LeBron in a playoff series. Things would be very interesting. John Wall? You’re being traded to New Orleans. An NBA version of a Kentucky superteam. That’d be awesome. So boom. We just made three more contenders. Together. Me and you. Let’s even send Kyle Lowry to Milwaukee. Not exactly a super team, I know, but his veteran experience would help a young and exciting Milwuakee team take that next step. I personally think both Giannis and Thon Maker will be MVP candidates in the near future. 

And there you have it folks. Just a short beginning of my plan to turn this league around. I know. It’s genius. I’m a smart guy. But hey, we did it as a team. Thanks for reading. Chances of all of this happening are slim to none, but if it does I will erase this last part and say I called it all from the start. 

Proof of Golf Gods on Display at Travlers Championship

Okay. I get it that some religions are monotheistic and preach that believing in other gods is a sin, but if you don’t believe in the golf gods, then you are just simply incorrect. The golf gods are responsible for millions of tears shed and countless days ruined. If you are a golfer then you know that you must respect the golf gods. You must replace your divot on the fairway, rake the bunkers and for the love of all humanity do NOT walk in anyone’s line. Break any of these unwritten rules of the game and the golf gods will make sure you suffer. Still don’t believe me about these gods? Well look no further than today’s finish at the Travlers Open.

Jordan Spieth defeated Daniel Burger on the first hole of the playoff by chipping in for a birdie from the green side bunker.

It was an incredible finish and really cool to watch live, but Spieth did everything he could to blow this tournament, but the golf gods said no. For some reason they were on his side today. He had tee shots go awry on 13 and 15 that could’ve easily bounced into the water. But instead they got held up in the rough by some miracle defying the laws of science. The shot at 13 was coming in incredibly hot and somehow caught the rough and settled after only one bounce. Then on 17, his approach shot came up shorter than Jordan anticipated and was inches away from finding yet another water hazard.

Eventually he made it through all of these close calls and forced a playoff with Burger only to absolutely yank his tee shot into a tree. His ball could have been thrown out of bounds, fell behind the tree or stay in the thick rough. Instead, that tree threw his ball right out into the fairway. He then put his shot in the green side bunker, and as I spoiled earlier, dunked that bad boy in for his 10th career victory.

If you don’t believe in the golf gods, then they will more than likely make you pay. They are harsh and do not care when or how they make their mark. They have ruined relationships and careers, but today, they were on Jordan’s side for some reason. And in their name, we pray. Amen.

Finally, a Team That Can Beat the Warriors in a 7 Game Series

So as we were planning our next episode of  Live From the 815, me and Jake talked about what starting 5 of fictional basketball characters could beat the Warriors in a 7 game series. You can listen tomorrow to get Jake’s 5, but I am here to give you a breakdown of my squad:

PG: Air Bud

One of the first names that came to mind. The Warriors like to play a fast paced game. Running up and down the floor tiring out the defense. I need someone who is in shape and can run with the best of them with ease. Air Bud is in great basketball shape and will always give it his all out there. He’d be a tough match up on both ends. 

SG: Lucas Scott

Lucas was always the lesser talented Scott son. But like Air Bud, he alwyas showed heart. He brings intangibles to a team that are hard to find. A good coach needs his best players to also be his best people. A guy like Scott will keep the team grounded and level headed during a heated series and won’t have anyone get under his skin.  On top of that, his basketball IQ is off the charts and he shows that by becoming Tree Hill’s coach in later seasons. It’s always nice to be on the same page as one of your players on the court. It gives the coach more confidence in his squad. 

SF: Dimitri Petrovich 

This may be a shocking move to some of you out there. And I will admit, this pick may make or break my team. But “Paste” was always one of my first picks in Backyard Basketball. He is absolutely deadly from downtown. He has decent size and will always be a guy that can get hot and take a quarter over. A great option to answer a 3 if needed. He basically has no emotions, and that includes nerves. Dimitri has ice in his veins and doesn’t care who the other team is, he calculated the trajectory of his shot and can adjust his formula to accommodate any defender. Dimitri is my dark horse that may just push my squad over the top. 

PF: Billy Hoyle

The Warriors like to go small so I will too. Hoyle doesn’t have the prototypical NBA size of a power forward, but he’s going to hustle out there. Always being underestimated, Billy will leave everything he has on the court to show that he can play. The man can ball. His style of play is perfect for the league right now. He has the speed and the leaping ability to jump out of the gym and his jumper isn’t anything to sleep on either. A big reason I picked him over Sydney Deane is because Billy won the initial shooting contest between the two. One of the easiest times you can judge their abilities against each other. One won and one lost.  He’s got some work to do on defense against these Warriors, but I picked him for a reason. 

C: The Orange Monstar

This might be my most confident pick. The Orange Monstar from Space Jam is the perfect fit for this squad. He’s got a mean streak in him and loves to Billy his opponents, which will be perfect for dealing with Dreymond. He has natural leadership qualities, as he seems to be the leader of the group from Moron Mountain. This Monstar gives us the size advantage 10x over. With actual coaching and a good team around him, he has the potential and size to completely dominate the paint. Like a young Magic Shaq out there. Now, I think he takes over Charles Barkley’s abilities, so rebounding is all taken care of. As long as he doesn’t have to face anyone on Michael’s Secret Stuff, I think he will be an asset in helping me take down the defending champions. 

So there you have it. The Warriors have absolutely no chance. They may score 130 a game, but we’re going to score a million. We have everything: shooting, speed, intelligence, grit and a chip on our shoulder that will not leave until we take down these bastards. #NewSuperteam

I’m a Sucker For Bad Sci-Fi Movies

This past weekend I was looking around Hulu and wasn’t feeling anything I was coming across. We’ve all been there. Couldn’t commit to any show or movie with confidence. And then I stumbled upon it… a classic gem starring the voice of Gary Busey… 

The Gibgerdead Man

I watched as Gary Busey played a murderer who dies and comes back to life as a gingerbread man. Yeah it’s some serious shit. I sat there for a three-hour long trilogy, watching the gingerdead man wreak havoc and kill everyone. 

This trilogy made me realize that I am and always will be a sucker for cheesy low budget sci-fi horror movies. 

Evil Bong


Dinocroc Vs Supergator

All of it is amazing to me. That Supergator poster was the background on my first flip phone. Even before I drank and exporemented with illegal substances, I would just sit for hours and hours and watch the bad acting and still stay hooked to the story line. 

I recommend giving them a try. They are great stoned movies to watch and you will lose hours and hours to the glorious world of mythical creatures and killing cookies. Thank you sci-fi. I owe you one.
