All NBA Team:

    Khris Middleton was robbed of an All-NBA selection. One of the more puzzling omissions from the recently announced All-NBA teams was Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton, while players like Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons and Houston Rockets point guard Russell Westbrook making the team raised a few eyebrows. Middleton’s snub was not related to his performance, but rather a weird quirk in the voting. Middleton received more votes than Simmons and Westbrook did, but he was ultimately excluded from the list because his votes were split between the forward and guard positions, giving him an insufficient amount of votes in both categories. I was shocked Khris Middleton didnt get named to third team, then noticed he did indeed have more...
    Bradley Beal’s wife, Kamiah Adams-Beal, expressed her anger on Twitter regarding her husband not making the 2019-20 All-NBA Team, as reported by TMZ. Despite averaging over 30 points a game, the second highest scoring average in the league, the Washington Wizard guard was not credited with the accolade. Kamiah wasted no time sharing her thoughts on the situation, as she felt her husband had been disrespected again. Bradley is the first player to average at least 30 points per game and not make an All-NBA team since it happened to Adrain Dantley in 1982, according to NBC Sports. I’m not here to say who shouldn’t have made it. Not my place. HOWEVER I am here to and will CONTINUE to...

    The All-NBA teams are out for the 2019-20 season and fans are going mad over the Washington Wizards star being snubbed. Bradley Beal has been overlooked by the voters once again. Earlier this season, Beal was snubbed from his third all-star selection, even though he was averaging astronomical numbers. Brad finished the season averaging 30.5 points per game while shooting 45% from the field. Although the Wizards missed the Playoffs, it was not because of a lack of effort by the 27-year-old. In fact, Beal’s surge of offense was the only good thing for Wizard’s poor season. Being ignored by the voters for an All-NBA team would be very disheartening for any player. But Beal proved that he is not...

    Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is on the road to redemption. Howard was one of the most ferocious post players that the modern era had seen. He won multiple Defensive Player of the Year awards with the Orlando Magic, leading the team to an NBA Finals. He lost to his current team in those finals in 2009. Howard’s career had one of the sharpest down-swings we had ever seen for an elite player. He forced his way to the Lakers in 2012 and had a bad year. He would leave the Lakers and go to the Rockets, where a Damian Lillard three ended his championship aspirations. Dwight has since bounced around the league, and everyone assumed that this Lakers...
