One of America’s greatest pastimes is sports, but as the popularity of sports increased, so has the divide between genders. There are clear categories for sports based on which gender is most represented. For example, football, basketball, baseball, wrestling, boxing and hockey are examples of male-dominated sports because they are thought of as being more “masculine.” On the other hand, gymnastics and figure skating are thought to be female-dominated sports because they are more “feminine.”
The National Basketball Association (NBA) season is just a few weeks from starting. With training camp arriving, there is speculation as to who will take home the hardware and awards of this NBA season. Based on player performances from last season, promising offseason transactions and optimistic expectations, here are my favorites to win each award this season.
About a month ago, the National Football League (NFL) approved a new adjustment to their compensatory pick formula. Now, any team that develops a minority head coach or general manager for another team gets an extra third-round pick. For example, say the Chiefs’ Offensive Coordinator Eric Bieniemy becomes a head coach next year; the Chiefs will get an extra third-round pick in the following draft.
At the heels of the 2020 National Basketball Association (NBA) Draft, this year’s college basketball season tipped off last week. Based on an extremely limited sample size, I was really impressed with the play of some of the five-star recruits. If their level of play continues, next year’s draft could certainly live up to its prediction that it is loaded with talent.
If one word could be used to describe the National Football League’s (NFL) handling of its season in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’d be farcical. A mess, characterized by mistake after mistake with no redeemable aspects or moments through Week 12 of the season.
The National Basketball Association’s (NBA) 2020-2021 season is set to begin this month, meaning most teams’ rosters have stabilized. While there are still some interesting names that haven’t been signed yet, free agency is largely over. As usual, NBA general managers made some incredibly tactical moves while others made agonizingly questionable ones. I’m going to break down some of the best and worst moves made during the 2020 NBA free agency period.
The Patriots dynasty, or the Brady–Belichick era, was the greatest in National Football League (NFL) history.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) men’s basketball season begins on Nov. 25, only a couple of weeks after its usual early November start. Among the major American sports leagues, college basketball wasn’t too impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the big NCAA March Madness tournament was canceled, most conferences had already finished their final tournaments by the time things began to shut down in March. Before I begin with my predictions for the season, I think it’d be useful to provide some brief context for the NCAA’s COVID-19 plan.
Let’s face it: Players are more important than coaches. Don’t get me wrong; coaches are a nice side piece, but they aren’t the ones who spend hours upon hours training to get in shape. Simply put, players have the onus of executing on the field.
For the first time in a long time, something unequivocally good happened in baseball. There was no catch, no fallback, no phantom menace behind the curtain waiting to squash any hope of progress. Kim Ng, a baseball woman of legendary stature with a resume to match, was named as the Miami Marlins’ new general manager (GM) last Friday.
For the first time this century, the National Basketball Association (NBA) is holding its draft in November, a few months removed from the usual June date. Besides its unusual timing and the fact that it will take place over video conference, this year’s draft seems to be a question mark for many teams.
It’s that time of year in which fantasy football general managers are reflecting on their rosters. Ten weeks into the season, they have a rough picture of where their teams stand. But regardless of how well their teams are living up to expectations, it’s instinct to want to make them better and to be on the hunt for moves that will put their teams over the top. I spend a lot of time running analytics on fantasy, and here are three central takeaways I embrace to maximize the potential of my fantasy teams.
Tank for Trevor.
This year’s National Basketball Association (NBA) offseason is unlike any other year (for obvious reasons). After players approved a Dec. 22 start date for the 2020-21 season, only 71 days exist between the last game of this past year’s Finals and the season opener.
Remember when the Houston Astros cheated their way into a World Series ring? Well, this season, the Astros and their fanbase used a brand-new, never-before-seen rallying cry: us against the world.
We’ve reached the ever-chaotic free agency period for the National Basketball Association (NBA).
If 2020 were like any other year, the National Basketball Association (NBA) 2020-2021 season would already be underway. Instead, the 2019-2020 season has just ended. Now, Commissioner Adam Silver is scrambling to adjust the league’s schedule to balance all the unique factors at play.
The Philadelphia Eagles took on the New York Giants in some National Football League (NFL) intra-division play on Oct. 22. No team seemed to have a clear advantage over the other, as evidenced by the back and forth nature of the game. This aspect, however, did make for an exciting game.
The longest-running soap opera the NFL (National Football League) has ever seen continues.
By the time this article is published, the first two games will have already been played in this year’s World Series matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays. Nonetheless, the meeting of these teams features two storylines that are worth covering.
