NBA All Star Weekend Duds & A Mush For The Ages
To say All star weekend was a snooze fest would be accurate. The skills challenge was the most entertaining event, the three point contest can be done by anyone but KAT did go crazy, and lets not even talk about the dunk contest. Steph Curry and the All Star game were highlights. You have to cheer for 16 threes and a guy posting 50 point in the most 2k my player way possible. The real fireworks came with the biggest divide in CBB. Was Juwan Howard in the wrong or did the whole ordeal teach us a new lesson in keeping your hands to yourself?

The last week of hoops ended a 18 game win streak, saw the Ball Brothers go back and forth, and exposed the world to future NBA lottery picks. The Suns have found the answer to slowing down Steph Curry in their back to back games though they lost game two without Devin Booker and several minutes of a hurt Mikal Bridges.

Russ To LA, Biggest Moves Of Free Agency, Duke Recruiting Trail, & Memphis' All-Star Staff
The Lakers started off Free Agency a few days early with the Russell Westbrook trade. How does it change the way Lebron and The Lakers playstyle will be the next question. (1:49) Chris Pauls resigns with Phoenix for 20 million more dollars than he asked for. Is a mentorship in the works for the Suns young core? (17:11) Lonzo to Chicago changes a lot for fast Chicago team. The oldest Ball brother could push Chicago to its first playoff berth since the Derrick Rose era. (29:13) Denver met the end of a broom during their playoff run. Reupping Will Barton and several others could be the thing to push them past the hump with a healthy Jamal Murray coming back to the court. (39:01) I usually leave the Spurs to do what they do but after years of sub-Spursian play its time for some better answer than competing. (42:42) Memphis is putting together an All-Star coaching staff with the addition of Rasheed Wallace. (50:42) Duke Continues to be the big fish in recruiting after landing two top prospects within a week of each other. (52:44) Texas & Oklahoma's move to the SEC may benefit their football programs but where do they stand as basketball teams?

Why The Suns Will Beat The Bucks In The NBA Finals, Name, Image, & Likeness Must Haves, & More Coaching Moves
This NBA finals represents the changing of the guard in the NBA. There's no LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, or Steph Curry in the Finals for the first time in 15 years. That doesn't mean the beat of their generation won't be the one to decide who leaves with a NBA championship. Chris Paul has dragged a historically underwhelming franchise to the Finals to face off with Giannis and the Bucks. Wherever the chips may fall (Suns in 6) a ring will be fitted for the next generation. We highlight the benefits of NIL and how important understanding your taxes will be for every college athlete.

Is This Chris Paul's Best Team? Looking At Possible Western Conference Finals Matchups
Chris Paul's done it again! His third team in just as many years is making another playoff push and this time he's matching his deepest run in his career. These Suns are a team full of dawgs! Devin Booker joins CP3 to complete their role as the Elbow Bros. Deandre Ayton bruises the teams frontcourt averaging a double double in his playoff debut. Mikal Bridges is proving to be more than a 3 and D specialist scoring all over the court especially off drives. You can't forget about the salsa man Jae Crowder. This could be Paul's best team and easily matches up with the remaining two teams in the Western Conference. Whether it's the Clippers or the Jazz the Suns have the advantage in so many matchups.
