Aaaaaaaaaaand we’re back! What a week, huh!? This week things are a bit in the form of a recap of the frenzy of moves in the NFL, as well as some basketball. Who changed teams you ask? Nick Foles, Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., Earl Thomas, Tyrann Mathieu, Trey Flowers, Trent Brown, Olivier Vernon, Golden Tate, Mark Ingram, and many more. It’s okay, because when all of that was happening, Bill Belichick was on vacation without a care in the world, because that’s what winners do. In other news, we hear more and more about the Lakers each day that paints them in a much worse light (LeBron TRADE RUMORS!?); the Rockets winning streak came to an end against the Warriors; Steve Kerr was caught ripping Draymond Green; Serge Ibaka decided to try to assault a Cleveland Cavalier; Buddy Hield decided to be Klay Thompson, only for Jaylen Brown to clap back and do the same thing in the same quarter (more on that later).
We’ve said enough, now to your preview for this upcoming week!
Welcome back to Who to Watch. Congratulations to LeBron James, who passed Michael Jordan to move up to 4th overall on the all-time scoring list on Wednesday. He is now 1,333 points away from passing Kobe Bryant for 3rd, 4,618 points points away from passing Karl Malone for 2nd, and 6,077 away from passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for 1st, and with the way he keeps his body in shape, he could be the all-time leading scorer in the NBA before it’s all said and done; too bad he won’t make the playoffs anytime soon (sorry Kerm). In other news, the Celtics look like they came back to life this week, the Rockets look SCARY good (sitting pretty in the third seed out West), the Trail Blazers are pretty good themselves good (don’t tell Fredy) and Trae Young has been phenomenal. There are some great playoff races in the NBA, such as the battle for seeds 3 through 5 in the East, the battle for the final three playoff spots in the East taking place between five teams, and the mess in the West for seeds 3 through 8, where only three and a half games separate all teams involved. Oh, and Antonio Brown was a Buffalo Bill for a few hours.
Upcoming we have a match between the Lakers and Celtics tomorrow night, college basketball conference tournaments will kick into high gear, and NFL free agency will begin next Wednesday. Keep an eye out for all of that!
Here’s who you should be watching over the next week:
