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.

Chavez Ravine Dodger Stadium

Do You Know Why Dodger Stadium Called Chavez Ravine?

Do You Know Why Dodger Stadium Called Chavez Ravine?

Chavez RavineChavez Ravine is located in an area of Los Angeles California called Sulphur Canyon and plays home to one of the most famous baseball parks in the county Dodger Stadium. It is called Chavez Ravine because it is named after Julian Chavez who was a Los Angeles city councilman in the 19th century. In 1844 Julian Chavez purchased a plot of land in the Elysian Park area and over time expanded it to roughly 318 acres. Prior to becoming Chavez Ravine, the area was called “Cemetery Ravine,” after old Calvary which is a Roman Catholic cemetery located in Los Angeles and is now known as the New Calvary Cemetery.

In the 1940’s Chavez Ravine was originally made up of “Mexican American” communities consisting of LA Loma, Palo Verde and Bishop. Chavez Ravine was considered a poor but cohesive area. The ever growing population of the city of Los Angeles kept expanding and Chavez Ravine became viewed as a prime but, underutilized location. In 1949 with the vote by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles as well as aid from federal funds passed the Housing Act of 1949 enabling the City of Los Angeles to construct public housing to address the

Chavez Ravine excavated to make Dodger Stadium

.

On October 7th, 1957 Walter O’Malley announced that he would be moving the Dodgers west. O’Malley decided to build the new Dodger Stadium on a parcel of land in Chavez Ravine.

In 1962 the Los Angeles Angels were tenants of the LA Dodgers and remained in the stadium till 1965. The Angels called the stadium “Chavez Ravine Stadium” or just “Chavez Ravine” during their stay. In 2008 the Los Angeles City Council designated the area around the Stadium as “Dodgertown”. In April of 2009 the United Postal service recognized the Los Angeles City Councils decision to call it “Dodgertown” and assigned a postal code “Dodgertown California 90090”.

Dodger Stadium under constructionDuring the construction of Dodger Stadium numerous structures located in Chavez Ravine were spared demolition. The structures were sold by the Dodger Stadium developers to nearby Universal Studios for just one dollar apiece. The Chavez Ravine structures were then moved to the Universal Studios back lot where they appeared in a verity of Universal Studios productions. The most famous was the house of Atticus Finch from the 1962 movie To Kill a Mockingbird was an erstwhile Chavez Ravine home.

Here’s a few fun facts about Chavez Ravine Dodger Stadium you may not have known about:

Dodger Stadium Chavez Ravine from the air– Dodger Stadium was opened in 1962. Prior to its construction, the Dodgers played their first few seasons in Los Angeles at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum after moving to the city from Brooklyn before the 1958 baseball season.

– As of the 2014 Major League Baseball season, Dodger Stadium had a maximum seating capacity of approximately 56,000. Last season over 3,782,337 fans enjoyed an MLB baseball game at Dodger Stadium.

– Notable events at Dodger Stadium over the years include a Beatles concert during their final United States tour, Sandy Koufax’s perfect game against the Los Angeles Dodgers Chicago Cubs on September 9, 1965, Frank Sinatra singing the National Anthem on Opening Day in 1977, the 1980 Major League Baseball Game, Kirk Gibson’s memorable game-winning home run in the 1988 World Series against the Oakland Athletics Game tickets, and numerous no-hitters.

– Dodger Stadium is the third oldest major league baseball stadium still in use behind only Chicago’s Wrigley Field and Boston’s Fenway Park. You can also checkout our Best and Worst MLB Stadiums.

– Dodger Stadium has the advantage of being located in sunny Los Angeles, where rainouts are rare. In fact, as of April 7, 2015, the Dodgers were on a streak of over a thousand games without a rainout on their home turf; only 17 total rainouts occurred from the stadium’s opening in 1962 through 2015.

– Dodger Stadium is home to the “Dodger Dog”, a distinctive 10″ long hot dog invented by Thomas G. Arthur.

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!
