Okay, so maybe this year’s NBA Draft class isn’t quite as good as we thought. There are no LeBrons. No KDs. There might not even be a D-Wade in here. The class from 2003 is much better, and let’s not even go into discussions concerning the ’96 class or 1984. With that being said, there is a ton of talent, and we also have to remember: it’s not even April yet. With so many young players coming out, we can guarantee your opinion of them will be drastically different once we get closer to the summer. Read More »

Syracuse just can’t lose, can they? With the game on the line last night in Pittsburgh, down one with 4.4 seconds left and the ball inbounding underneath their own hoop, the Orange stayed undefeated after freshman point guard Tyler Ennis came up the sideline and dropped a sick 35-foot game-winner.

We knew Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis was good, and preternatural when it came to what you want in a team’s point guard, but a recent revelation by ESPN’s Chad Ford jumped out at us because it toes the line of hyperbole. Still, the more we thought about it, the more it kind of makes sense. An unnamed NBA GM told Ford that Ennis is doing so well for No. 1 ranked Syracuse, they’d take him ahead of 2-time All-Star Kyrie Irving. You read that right. Read More »
