Welcome back to this week’s Who to Watch. Last week we saw some low-scoring football (the Colts-Texans game actually but my grandmother to sleep, and she generally likes football), the Celtics looked phenomenal at home, and Trevor “Sunshine” Lawrence and the Clemson Tigers SMACKED Alabama to win their second college football championship in three seasons. Seattle’s offense looked archaic against Dallas, Cody Parkey’s kick was blocked at the end of the Eagles-Bears game, capping off a 16-15 Eagles upset, and Deshaun Watson lost a football game by more than a touchdown for the first time since high school. It looks like the 76ers have some turmoil going on with Jimmy Butler, and the Minnesota Timberwolves fired Thibs (but it’s okay, because Fred Hoiberg looks to be the favorite to land the job, meaning the TimberBulls will survive another day!)
Alright, this week he have the divisional playoffs, and the NBA has reached it’s halfway point. Should be some good games across the board.
Andy is back this week, which means you’ll get FIVE buy and sell picks this week!
On episode Magic Johnson, the boys are joined by artist and friend of the show Prowo Poufong (aka Reaper) in discussing J.Cole and Dreamville’s upcoming “Revenge of the Dreamers III” (11:00), James Harden’s MVP-like run (19:47), and The Oklahoma City Thunder’s season thus far (34:32).
Happy Friday everyone! Since we last met, the Patriots lost to the Steelers, and the Celtics are in the midst of a 2-game losing streak. Paul George and James Harden are going nuclear, while LeBron James was blocked (which according to Max Kellerman, means he’s done). Josh Gordon hit a road block on the road to recovery (we wish him well), and Tom Brady might have an MCL tear. As the NFL season makes its way towards a conclusion, it is playoff scenario season, as 14 teams are vying for the 7 remaining playoff spots in the league. And finally, next Tuesday is Christmas Day, which means TONS of great basketball.
With that, allow us at Hold My Drink Sports to wish you a wonderful holiday season.
Andy is away this week in Minnesota, so we have Mike (who made his debut to the page this past week) filling in for him.
