The Doncic Addiction

In recent years I’d heard the loudening chants: there’s a basketball prodigy in Europe named Luka Doncic and in 2018 he’s going to descend on the NBA and immediately become a “transformational” player. Okay, I thought, let me check him out. I watched highlight tapes and read scouting reports, and concluded his average speed and […]

Grooming Marvin Bagley

Few people like to discuss injuries and many are too superstitious to mention the subject.
