With All-Star weekend marking the midway point in the season, I figured it’s time to give away some midseason awards. Continue reading

This play has been overlooked, surprisingly. Probably because no star was involved.
Metaphors upon metaphors in this sick commercial for the next adidas offering of the Derrick Rose-inspired adiZero 2.
Recently I was thinking about how NBA players and the rap game go hand-in-hand. Lots of players are friends with rappers and some players even try their darn hardest to earn respect in the rap game. This got me wondering which NBA players are comparable to current rappers in today’s modern era. Here are my thoughts on who is who:
Jay-Z is Kobe Bryant
This has to be the easiest analogy one could make about the rap game/NBA. Both are living legends who are still active in their respective industries. Jay-Z and Kobe are both “winners”, as Jay has 11 “rings” (platinum albums) while Kobe has five NBA Championship rings. Oh, both are married to bangin’ chicks as well.
Kanye West is Lebron James
This one might come under fire by hip-hop and Ye fans, but the similarities are striking. It’s no lie when you say that both are disliked people by the general public. Kanye had his moment(s), Lebron has had his. However, both have proven their worth in their industries and are extremely important to both of their games. Both men have single-handedly altered each of their games in someway both for the positive and negative. It’s also important to think of both as “all-around players”. Lebron can do just about everything on both ends of the court, while Kanye can produce, rap, write, and (try to) sing.
I haven’t cried like this since I saw The Titanic.
Everyone’s favorite part of Sportscenter is its nightly Top 10 Plays of the Day, so why not have our own Play of the Day daily feature here at CSC? As you would expect, we’ll post the best play in from any sport (as long as there is video online) and likely a runner-up. So, let’s begin:
Play of the Day: Kemba Walker’s Buzzer Beater vs. Pitt
The only thing I can think of while watching this clip: “Damn, Brittney Griner just got her ankles broken!”
Runner-up: Guy Dupuy does a between-the-legs dunk over a car
This guy’s no joke. He would own every single NBA player in the dunk contest. Just let him in next year, Mr. Stern. Please?
It’s safe to say that not a lot of people my age really watched basketball in 90s (mostly because they were too young). Heck, I didn’t really even watch it. Ever since a thing called Youtube was created I’ve been browsing clips like no other. Youtube has allowed me to catch footage of some of the greatest players that ever played in any sport, after I truly understood what greatness was.
When I think about the 1990s era of the NBA, my thoughts are mostly full of Michael Jordan and the Bulls’ six NBA Championships. That’s probably what everyone that thinks about the 90s thinks, but what about the lesser known players that just didn’t have the Scottie Pippens? This is what this list is all about.
With that said, would you rather be underrated or overpaid?
Sorry Bryant Reeves, I’ll have to take the former.
Here are the 10 most underrated NBA players of the 1990s.
