Damian Lillard NBA

Trail Blazers Offseason is there a plan B?

For the Portland Trail Blazers offseason, Plan A is to resign Lamarcus Aldridge and then go from there to improve the other positions. However, what happens if Lamarcus Aldridge leaves Portland? Do the Blazers have Plan B? Can they afford to sign other big name players?

Let’s take a look at the Trail Blazers Offseason Situation.

The Cap Space

If Lamarcus Aldridge walks in the Trail Blazers offseason, the Blazers will have around $40 million tied up in cap space. That is assuming they haven’t resigned Wesley Matthews or Robyn Lopez. The $40 million are calculated with the contracts and salary of new players that they acquired: Gerald Henderson and Mason Plumlee. The good news is that Plumlee is still playing on a rookie contract, and the Blazers have a team option for the next two seasons. That makes him extremely cheap and valuable player. Assuming that the cap will be set at somewhere around $67 million or $70 million, the Trail Blazers could have around $30 million in cap space.

A Big Man alternative

If Lamarcus Aldridge walks, and Blazers do not resign their free agents, they will need a replacement for center/power forward since Plumlee can play either position, and small forward. For the Blazers, signing a big man is the priority. The Trail Blazers can go two ways here. The first option is to go for a big name free agent like DeAndre Jordan, someone who has been linked with the Blazers for some time, or sign a cheaper alternative, and pursue a big name small forward. A smart GM, like Neil Olshey is, can probably see that there are number of big men on the market, including Atlanta Hawks Paul Millsap, Brooklyn Nets Brook Lopez, Greg Monroe, Tyson Chandler, Josh Smith, David West, Brandan Wright, Amare, Carlos Boozer, Omer Asik and much more. However, the pool for small forwards and perimeter players is smaller. Therefore, expect the Blazers to pursue a second tier big man if Aldridge leaves during the Trail Blazers offseason, someone like the Pelcians Omer Asik, Indiana Pacers David West or the Dallas Mavericks Tyson Chandler.

The Wing Position

The biggest problem for the Blazers the past season was Batum was not playing at an All Star level. The Blazers need a wing that can complement Damian Lillard, or someone who can shoot the 3 and defend. There are two free agents that fit that description perfectly. The first one is DeMarre Carroll, who is an unrestricted free agent, and Tobias Harris, a restricted free agent. They probably won’t get in the Jimmy Butler/Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes during the Trail Blazers offseason, but they can take a look at Carroll and Harris.

What if Aldridge resigns?

The question is a valid one, since if Aldridge resigns with the Blazers, the team will have to improve. If Aldridge resigns for the max, his contract for next season will start somewhere between $18 and $20 million. That will leave around $10 million in cap space for the Blazers, a money they must use to sign a replacement for Batum at least and play Plumlee at center. In that case, the Blazers will have to look at players like Danny Green, Gerald Green, Boston Celtics Jae Crowder, Loul Deng and Houston Rockets Corey Brewer. All these players can command somewhere between $6 and $10 million per year.

The Portland Trail Blazers finished last season with a record of 51-31, 1st in NBA Western Conference Northwest Division. LaMarus Aldridge went into the Trail Blazers offseason ranked 7th in NBA players having played 71 games during the season, averaging 35.4 minutes a game with 23.4 points per game average.

la kings draft picks 2015

LA Kings Draft Picks 2015

The 2015 Los Angeles Kings Draft has been a productive one for LA. Before the actual LA Kings Draft even began they worked on get a deal done with the Boston Bruins that would send goaltender Martin Jones, defensive prospect Colin Miller and their first round, #13 pick in the draft for forward Milan Lucic. Lucic was originally drafted by the 50th by the Boston Bruins in the 2006 NHL Draft. The “Heavy” power forward totaled 165 goals and 238 assists for the Bruins which was good for 403 total points.

With giving up a their first round #13 pick there were still six selections allotted in the LA Kings Draft.

Here is a look at the LA Kings Draft Picks 2015

ERIK CERNAK
The defenseman was picked in the 2nd round, 43rd in the overall NHL draft and brings to the LA Kings excellent reach and strength. Cernak is known for being brilliant defensively especially in front of his own net. While he will need to work and improve on his skating ability he is a physical player who doesn’t take a lot of penalties.

ALEXANDER DERGACHYOV
The 6’4 200 pound Dergachyov brings an extremely high level of both skill and intelligence to the LA Kings. Dergachyov has great puckhandling skills as well as soft hands and a very keen awareness of teammates positions on the ice at all times. The gritty grinder will bring his role as a scorer with all the technical skills to be successful with the LA Kings Lines.

AUSTIN WAGNER
Picked in the LA Kings Draft 2015 4th round, 99th overall Wagner is a speedy strong transitional forward who is extremely fluid in his skating patterns. Wagner will need to work on his timing of shots as well as passing but overall he is a good decision maker.

MATT SCHMALZ
Picked in the LA Kings Draft 2015 5th round, 134th overall Schmalz is a gigantic power forward who has finally grown into his body this last season. He is a very well rounded skater who knows how to use his massive frame extremely well.

CHAZ REDDEKOPP
Picked in the LA Kings Draft 2015 7th round, 187th overall Reddekopp will be a tough defender in the LA Kings zone and will be a strong asset on penalty kills for LA. He will need to work on his skating footwork which is sometimes known to be tight and a bit clumsy but Chaz has very good athleticism and will be able to work on the skating skills.

MATT ROY
Picked in the LA Kings Draft 2015 7th round, 194th overall Roy is a right handed defensive player at 6’0 200 pounds.

The LA Kings finished the 2014-15 season 40-27-15 (95 points), 4th in NHL Western Conference Pacific Division missing the NHL Playoffs. With the Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and the Vancouver Canucks all vying to win the Pacific Division the LA Kings will have a tough schedule ahead of them and will be looking to get back into the thick of the NHL playoff hunt asap!

Adele New Album

Adele New Album Delayed But Worth the Wait?

Everyone is talking about Adele’s new album. Since Adele’s previous album sold a jaw dropping amount of copies, (over 30 million copies and counting) we are all waiting with bated breath to see if the album she is still working on, 25, will live up to her previous release.

Unfortunately the wait for the Adele new album may be even longer than we have all anticipated, because reports have come out that the earliest it could possible release is September.

The delay between the two albums is now closing in on 5 years which means the pressure is high and that’s why Adele isn’t willing to rush it, and scrap her plans to release the album in the summer. She really wants it to be perfect, and hopefully her fans are willing to wait it out.
Like her previous albums Adele will be writing her own songs, but she won’t necessarily be performing solo according to the Gigwise article “Everything We Know About the Adele New Album So Far” by Sean Kerwick,

“The LP is going to feature Paul Epworth. Although nothing has been officially confirmed, there are definitive signs from both sides pointing to the collaborators working together again. Back in 2013 when asked about the progress of the new album by Billboard, she said, “I’m definitely going to visit Paul Epworth and stuff like that again.”

One of the best things about Adele’s album coming out is that she will finally be heading out on a world tour again after almost two years of very limited performances. The last time Adele went on tour was in 2011 where she played 67 concerts on her tour.

Lakers Draft 2015

Lakers Draft 2015 What does it mean for the future of the franchise?

Lakers Draft 2015

And there goes all the mock drafts and pre-analysis of the lakers draft 2015. While everyone expected the Lakers to select Jahlil Okafor as the Lakers draft 2015 No.2 pick in this year’s draft, Los Angeles went a different route and selected point guard D’Angelo Russel. Considering they already have point guard Jordan Clarkson who looked superb in the final month of the year, what does the pick means for the future of the franchise? Let’s take a look at some of the questions that are popping out from the Lakers draft 2015.

Is Russell that good?

Considering the Lakers used the highest pick they have had since 1982 on him, he must be darn special. The last time the Lakers drafted a point guard this high (1979), he went on to win 5 titles for the franchise. Russell won the Jerry West Award, and averaged more points than any other freshman in the NCAA. Some of Russell’s strengths are: excellent passer, makes free throws, has the size advantage for point guard, great rebounder, decent 3-pt shooter and is a ball-hawking defender. To put it simply, Russell is an excellent choice for a modern type point guard. He can pass, make free throws and shoot the 3. He can also play shooting guard next to another point guard, which would allow teams to place two ball handlers on the floor. His game is very similar to the one of Brandon Roy. Last season he averaged 19.3 points, 5 assists and 5.7 rebounds, shooting 45% from the floor and 41% from behind the arc. The Lakers, according to coach Byron Scott were mostly impressed by his leadership ability and his ability to make others around him better.

What does this mean for Jordan Clarkson?

It is hard to envision the Lakers playing Russell and Clarkson together, even though Russell can handle playing shooting guard. However, the SG spot is reserved for Kobe Bryant. Kobe and D’Angelo can be a great back court combo, as both can handle ball handling duties and shoot the ball. The more likely scenario is that Clarkson might get traded so the Lakers can plug other holes in their rotation.

Lakers confident they can get a big man via trade/free agency

Drafting a point guard when a big man like Jahlil Okafor is available shows that the Lakers are pretty confident they can get a big man via other channels. The Lakers were already players in the DeMarcus Cousins sweepstakes, and after the draft, the rumors will heat up. The Kings selected Willie Cauley-Stein with their 6th pick, a center from Kentucky. Their pick might suggest they are ready to part ways with Cousins. The Lakers will also try to pry Marc Gasol from Memphis although reports say he has no desire to play in Los Anglese. There will be other options for center, as the Lakers might decide and sign some of the second tier centers such as Tyson Chandler.

The other Lakers draft 2015 pick

With the 34th pick, the Lakers selected Anthony Brown, a small forward from Stanford. Brown will bring more shooting to the Lakers, as he shot 44% from 3-pt range in college. He can also get to the rim, is a willing passer and a great re-bounder for his position. He is 23 years old, and he might be one of the more NBA ready players in the draft. He is a 5 year senior, and will immediately fill in a void for the Lakers. The only downside is that he needs to add some bulk to be able to play small forward or power forward in small lineups. And he should work on his consistency. There is not much upside here, as he is already 23 years old, but he can be a solid role player for years to come.

Stephen Curry MVP

Stephen Curry MVP Award Three Reasons Its Well Deserved

Stephen Curry MVP award the top three reasons it is well deserved!

During the course of the regular season, two names were always in the running for the MVP award. One of them was Stephen Curry, the other being Houston Rockets dynamic guard James Harden. In the end, the Warriors guard won it, and here the reasons why Stephen Curry’s MVP award is well deserved.

Best player on the best team argument
The Golden State Warriorss were the best team during the regular season, winning franchise best 67 games. And it is not just the number of games they won, but how they did it. The Warriors were first in defensive rating, allowing just 98.2 points per 100 possessions and second in offensive rating at 109.7. Only the Los Angeles Clippers were the better offensive team during the course of the regular season, but the Warriors scored a net differential of 11.4. The Warriors were the only team with a double digit net differential in the regular season. Stephen Curry is arguably the best player on the team, as he makes everything happen. His 3-pt shooting draws the defense, but he can also drive, and he always finds the open man. His numbers might be down from a season ago, but his efficiency is up, and he was very close to the 40-50-90 club, shooting 44% from the 3-pt line, 48.7% overall and 91.4% from the free throw line.

A Record Year
Usually, the MVP winner breaks some kind of a record. And in the case of Stephen Curry MVP season, the record is the one he set two years ago. In the 2012-2013 season, Curry set a record for most 3-pt shots made with 272. This year, he broke the record on April 9, five days before the regular season ended. He finished the season with 286 made 3-pt shots. He attempted 646 3s, the most out of any other player in the league. And Curry was efficient, shooting 44.3% from behind the arc.

Improved defense
For a player to be considered an MVP, he must show his value on both ends of the floor. Stephen Curry MVP season marks a big step towards that direction for the lanky point guard. Not primary known for his defense, Curry has made huge strides on that end of the floor in the past season. His defensive win shares are the best factor that shows Curry’s value. He has contributed 4.1 wins for the Warriors this season with his defense. And according to stats, the opponents he guards shoot just 36.8% from the floor. Curry has improved his defense radically, and he is averaging career best 2 steals per game, and career low 2 fouls per game. Before the season started, Curry worked with assistant coaches on his defense, and they praise his high hands. Curry’s hands have helped him deflect shots and go for steals. He is also better at stripping opponents and his anticipation for team and help defense has also improved.

I also picked Stephen Curry as the next NBA Superstar back at the beginning of 2013 NBA season.

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors have a chance to win the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight which would add two notches in the Stephen Curry MVP Belt…a World Champion and NBA Finals MVP! What a year for Stephen Curry!

Golden State Warriors Tickets soared to an all time high averaging $1450.00 per ticket on the resale market for the game two of the NBA Finals. The NBA Finals Game one at the Oracle Arena to see Stephen Curry and the Warriors face Lebron James and the Cavaliers averaged $1250.00 per ticket. If the Warriors lose tonight to the Cavaliers the chance of breaking the $1450.00 NBA Finals Ticket average is extremely high.

Katy Perry Live

Katy Perry Live Her Top Moments

Katy Perry’s Top Live Moments

Katy Perry has never been one for subtlety. Her desire to portray glammed up quirkiness is ever-present from her food embellished outfits to the tongue-in-cheek nature of her lyrics. But it is perhaps her live shows that take the cake in campy extravagance. Often a conglomeration of lights, videos, and colorful dancers, these dizzying concerts could easily rival the sensory overload of an acid trip. It would seem impossible then to condense such chaos to a few retrievable highlights, but there are, in fact, many memorable live moments within Perry’s career that deserve recognition.

Katy Perry Live Top Moment – Lakewood High School
After a contest amongst high schools to see who could sing to the pop star’s hit “Roar” the loudest, Lakewood High School was chosen as the winner by Katy Perry herself. They were promptly rewarded with a concert performed by their idol. Plenty of memorable moments were sprinkled throughout the show, specifically a jump rope break Perry took during “Roar”, and when she gave two hopeful fans a kiss on the cheek, sending them into spastic fits of glee.

Katy Perry Live Top Moment – PRISMATIC Pizza
Since cutting gluten out of her diet, Katy Perry seems to find satisfaction in supplying fans with Crust pizza, so that they may enjoy its glutinous goodness in her absence. One such time during her PRISMATIC tour, Perry handed over a fresh pie to a reluctant seven-year old, whom she plucked from the audience. She managed to induce laughter from the crowd as she quipped, “You probably usually hang out in Fitzroy and you only came tonight because someone had a spare ticket.” Thereby easing the recipient’s nerves.

Katy Perry Live Top Moment – Swinging at the Grammys
While Perry’s split with Russell Brand has long passed, one can’t deny the touching sentiment during her 2011 Grammys concert performance, as she floated dreamlike unto the stage via a giant swing, crooning softly the lyrics to “Not Like the Movies”, whilst previously private footage of her and Brand’s wedding was projected behind her.

Katy Perry Live Top Moment – 2015 Super Bowl
Katy Perry’s performance at the 2015 Super Bowl garnered the highest viewership ever for a half-time performance, with an audience of 118.5 million in the U.S. This actually surpassed the viewership of the Super Bowl itself, which reached an audience of 114.4 viewers. The twelve-minute set was packed with excitement, beginning with Perry’s entrance, straddling atop a giant animatronic lion, and continuing with guest appearances by Missy Elliott and Lenny Kravitz. Her big moment would come in the finale, however, as she began to levitate, ultimately flying off stage as she belted out her hit “Firework”, leaving the crowd stunned.

2015 MLB Allstar Game Prospects

2015 MLB Allstar Game Prospects

The first month of this year’s baseball is done, and while the All-Star game is still a little while off, it’s never a bad idea to look at some 2015 MLB All-Star Game prospects who might be taking the diamond for the Midsummer Classic in Cincinnati on July 14th. We’ve selected our top prospects based on mostly on the numbers they’re posting this year, although their track record is definitely a factor, too.

Lets start with the American League:

  1. Miguel Cabrera (1B, Detroit Tigers)
    – There’s no reason that Cabrera should not keep his starting spot from last year’s game. He’s posting solid numbers (.333 BA, .438 OBP, .601 SLG), and is yet to make an error this year. He’s an absolute no-brain inclusion in the AL side.
  2. Hanley Ramirez (LF, Boston Red Sox)
    – Although struggling a bit recently, he’s posting acceptable numbers when you take into account his power (10 HR in the first month), and that Boston are going through a rough patch, batting sub-.200 as a team this month. We predict that both he and the Red Sox will find their feet soon, and you’ll see Hanley take the field in the run-on side in Cincinatti
  3. Jose Iglesias (SS, Detroit Tigers)
    – Despite stellar numbers this year in a strong Tigers side, Iglesias is perhaps a little fortunate with his timing. With last years retirement of the incumbent Jeter, and nobody really putting their hands up and staking a claim on this role, Iglesias’ .345 BA (highest in AL), .400 OBP, .445 SLG could win him the job. Don’t be surprised if he’s standing there at Shortstop when the Midsummer Classic rolls around.
  4. Michael Brantley (LF, Cleveland Indians)
    – Without a doubt, Brantley has been the best hitter in the Cleveland Indians lineup. Take into account that Brantley is carrying a back injury with him which is restricting his power, and his .336 BA, .416 OBP and .546 SLG becomes even more impressive. His power is slowly coming back, evidenced by quadrupling his home run count inside May, and we think he’ll be at full power by July, and will be really pushing Ramirez for that starting LF slot. Either way, we’re confident that Brantley will feature in the game.
  5. Jose Altuve (2B, Houston Astros)
    – At the start of the year, if you asked me to pick one person that was a certainty to maintain his spot in the AL side, I would have picked the evergreen Robinson Cano. However, both he and his Mariners are off to a so-so start to the season, and it’s hard to argue with the bat of Jose Altuve – at one point in the season he was hitting well over .350, and now has cooled a little, but you just can’t argue with a guy sitting on 24 RBIs from the leadoff slot. Unless Cano steps up his game significantly, we’re picking Altuve to make his debut in the run-on side in July.l
  6. Sonny Gray (RHP, Oakland Athletics)
    – Instead of making the usual early prediction mistake of trying to shoot the moon and pick the breakout star who becomes the surprise inclusion, we’re gonna take a shot at picking the guy that’s going to be walking out onto the mound in the first inning for the AL. We believe there’s no better candidate than Sonny Gray. Leading the league in ERA, WHIP, and sitting in the top 10 for Wins, Innings Pitched and Strikeouts, we feel that the only other possibility is Felix Hernandez himself. As it stands right now though, there is no going past Sonny Gray to start that game in our opinion.

That about wraps up the AL, we threw up a few guys that are a near surety to hold their slot, and a couple of guys whose selections may be somewhat of a surprise. Lets move onto the NL team:

  1. Buster Posey (C, San Francisco Giants)
    – An average April for Posey has turned into a far stronger May, hitting .321 since May 1st. The real clincher for Posey is the power threat that he represents, which is very unusual for a catcher. His .287 BA, .359 OBP and .474 SLG are good enough to earn the NL catching slot in the Midsummer Classic, and his 6 homeruns cannot be ignored. We expect a strong May to turn into a stronger June, and by the time July rolls around, this will seem like the most obvious choice in the world.
  2. Nolan Arenado (3B, Colorado Rockies)
    – With Aramis Ramirez unable to put up the numbers this year, we consider the NL 3B slot completely up for the taking this year. The strongest candidate at the moment appears to be Nolan Arenado. This 2x Gold Glover is a shining light in the Rockies lineup at the moment, bringing incredible power to the order. He currently sits 9th in the NL for slugging, at .531, and his power will be the key to making sure he’s running out with the NL side in Cincinnati.
  3. Dee Gordon (2B, Miami Marlins)
    – In our opinion there’s no player with more certainty of making an appearance in Cincinnati than Dee Gordon. Currently sitting on top of the NL in batting average (.406) and 2nd in the NL with 12 stolen bases inside the first month and a half, even Howie Kendrick cannot hope to push Dee Gordon out of that starting 2B slot.
  4. Matt Kemp (RF, San Diego Padres)
    – There’s no more highly respected veteran of the game than Matt Kemp. Even if the numbers don’t make him a surety to make an appearance (.273/.305/.377), he’s an excellent chance at taking a spot through the fan favorite vote. May hasn’t been a great month individually for Kemp, but he’s still definitely making his contribution to the team, having already posted a respectable 22 RBIs on the season. We’re confident at this point that Kemp will be running out for the NL side in July.
  5. Joc Pederson (CF, Los Angeles Dodgers)
    – May has been kind of slow for Joc, but seeing that 6 of his 10 hits on the month are homeruns, it’s clear that when he connects, he hits hard. Putting up 21 RBIs already is impressive, an 11 of those come this month, so the hits are coming when they really matter. So what do you get with a guy that can hit, and hit hard when it matters? A definite shot at an All Star appearance.
  6. Max Scherzer (P, Washington Nationals)
    – Max Scherzer got off to an unlucky start of the year – at one point he was 1-3 with the lowest ERA in the league and a WHIP under 1. His team has risen up behind him and he now sits at 4-3, which is much more representative of the incredible pitching performances he’s putting in (1.75 ERA, 0.92 WHIP). We think that Max Scherzer is a good shot at being the guy that NL turn to in order to start their game off right in Cincinnati.

We hope you enjoyed our early look at some potential prospects for the 2015 MLB All Star Game. Let us know below if there’s someone in there that really surprises you, or if you think we’ve really overlooked an interesting race for an All Star appearance!
