Word hit the internet today that after one season in Minnesota with the Timberwolves, Jimmy Butler does not like his teammates, his environment, and he’s not even too fond of his old coach from Chicago, Tom Thibodeau.

Butler has asked to be traded to one of three destinations- the Los Angeles Clippers, the Brooklyn Nets, or the New York Knicks. All three of those teams are horrible. But importantly to Butler, all three of those teams can offer him a fat payday NBA “max” contract. Personally, I can tolerate horrible if someone pays me $125 million over 4 years, but maybe that’s just me.

What to do with Jordan Eberle and Anders Lee?

Fans of this blog- go ahead, there are one or two out there, you can admit it- know that for the most part this blog runs in the following cycle:


1) State a problem
2) Explain cause of problem
3) Explain how others handled similar situations successfully
4) Discuss potential solutions
5) Use case studies, histories, and current trends to come to a research based conclusion instead of scream like some ignorant asshole with a useless opinion.

Well folks, this piece will be no exception. If you read the last blog entry about what it would take to trade for a star player (note: not nearly as much as you’d think) then you have to come to the conclusion that you aren’t going to get a whole hel...

The State of the WWE

By Danny Radical

by Chris Klimaszewski

The WWE is at an all time high between talent, content, and viewers, and these are great things. I started re-watching the WWE about 2, 3 years ago and I felt like I was 10 years old again. I love everything that the WWE is doing. The WWE couldn’t be better. Actually, I lied. The WWE can be better and I’ll tell you how.

You have wrestlers get called up from NXT who get a huge pop whenever they make their Raw/Smackdown debut, but then soon after, they get over shadowed by all the story lines. Look at Finn Balor for example. Balor was drafted in the 1st round of the brand split by Raw, goes on to become the first WWE Universal Champion, and then gets injured short after. Since he returned, he never really go...

For the rumors that are going around and what people are saying, Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler want to play in New York next year. The Knicks would need x, y, and z in order to make cap space. They need to shed Noah’s contract, which I think they will, and they need to get rid of Hardaway and Lee’s contract. I believe Steve Perry and his staff will get rid of the contracts necessary in order to bring Kyrie, Jimmy, or whoever to the Mecca next season. Imagine a line-up with Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, Kevin Knox, Kristaps Porzingis, and Enes Kantar. That’s a fire starting five.

Just Lou It. Now.

Anyone that follows hockey even remotely had likely heard that the Islanders lost their captain and marquee player, John Tavares. The key word there is lost.

What Would Garth Do?

By Danny Radical

There are people critical of the summer that the New York Islanders have had under General Manager Lou Lamoriello. We should explore that concept by asking ourselves the question that, if he took over after a non-playoff season, what would Garth do?

After the disastrous series against the Boston Red Sox last weekend in which the team was utterly dominated by their AL East rival, a division title now looks to be out-of-reach for the Yankees. While the Yanks have come out of that series strong by sweeping the lowly Chicago White Sox and taking the first game of their series against the Texas Rangers, they remain 8 games behind the seemingly infallible Red Sox.

With the team looking down the barrel of the dreaded one-game playoff, it’s time to discuss who Aaron Boone should select as his starter for that game. A month ago this was a benign question; the answer was Luis Severino and anyone who opined otherwise was most likely just a C.C Sabathia fanboy. However, Seve...

Accomplishments. We all have a different sense of accomplishment- sometimes it’s finally learning your favorite song on your favorite instrument. Sometimes it’s perfecting the recipe for lasagna. For some it’s getting that perfect sunset in the background of the picture you’re taking. Sometimes it’s fixing the engine of your classic car. It can even be something like beating your last highest level on your favorite video game, or searching out a 20% off code for an on line purchase. Something you can point at and say “This made a difference in something.”

So here’s a question I have for you- If you just show up somewhere, is it an accomplishment? The simple act of just arriving at a place? W...
