Earlier this year, Shaquille O’Neal was chastised online for his interview with Donovan Mitchell, where he challenged him to continue raising his ceiling by stating he couldn’t win a championship. Naturally, this turned into online pundits and sports personalities criticizing older players for dismissing recent players and their perceived “soft” play style of today’s era.

Ah, just what the internet needs, another list. Cynicism aside, having read the Dragon Ball manga, and being someone who keeps up with its successor, Dragon Ball Super, I’ve decided to throw my hat into the online list ranking niche market. Whereas some websites, blogs, and fans rank each arc of the overall franchise by […]Read more "Dragon Ball Franchise Ranked"
When’s the last time you read Game Informer? Have you gone onto IGN lately to read current reviews or follow the current gaming news? If you actually have done one of those things recently, I have to wonder why. I’m not a big proponent of social media, but why not just go on Twitter and […]Read more "Video Game Journalism Does Not Matter"
Back in August of 2019, I published my “Seismic Revisions” article on my thoughts of the upcoming 2019-20 NBA season. In that article I stated that I didn’t believe the Miami Heat would be able to overcome the Milwaukee Bucks in a playoff series, and those printed words make me look like an utter fool […]Read more "I Didn’t Care About the NBA Playoffs"

Compared to my previous work, this article should be rather transient. I’m not one to enjoy political discussion in entertainment or sports, unless it’s being presented in an engaging and entertaining fashion, but when the situation calls for it, I can certainly provide an opinion. This is one of those times. The NBA has been […]Read more "The People’s Republic of the National Basketball Association"
Back in his prime, Carmelo Anthony was a 25 points per game scorer, and even with his steep decline the previous several seasons, he still boasts a career average of an even 24 points per game. Those days are obviously long gone, but many argue he should still be sought after by an NBA franchise. […]Read more "Where in the World Is Carmelo Anthony?"
It’s steadily becoming increasingly difficult to discuss the entirety of the backstory behind these albums, as Prince’s frenetic recording process led to many cancelled albums from 1994-1997. Playtime by Versace was a completely unknown album that resurfaced in July 2017 from a RRAuction by Michael Van Huffel1, who was Prince’s art director during this time, […]Read more "Retroactive Review: Chaos and Disorder (1996)"
Around the quarter-point of the 2018-19 NBA regular season is when I realized the Toronto Raptors would be the ones to represent the Eastern Conference in the 2019 NBA Finals. My pick to win it all remained the Golden State Warriors, as they had been since before the season started, and that belief did not […]Read more "Seismic Revisions"
Russell Westbrook has shot 43.3% from the field these previous three seasons, or 0.1% lower than his career shooting average if we want to really put things in context, and 38.4% in the playoffs during this same stretch of time. He’s averaged a triple-double in all three of those seasons, and yet, hasn’t played more […]Read more "Thunderous Dissent: A Fall from Stardom"
