    We are finally down to two teams remaining in the NBA playoffs. We have the Milwaukee Bucks representing the East and the Phoenix Suns coming out West. If you followed my Eastern and Western Conference predictions, you know I got this totally wrong.

    The Western Conference Finals have begun already, so now it’s time to shift the focus to the East. The Milwaukee Bucks will host the Atlanta Hawks for the right to go to the NBA Finals. Milwaukee hasn’t won an NBA championship since 1971 when Lew Alcindor was their top player. For the Hawks, you would have to go all the way back to 1958 when they were in St. Louis. Milwaukee and Atlanta were two of my top-5 favorites in the East after the trade deadline. Giannis have been amazing in this postseason and he stepped up more against Brooklyn. The Bucks won their series in seven games and the…

    Atlanta Hawks 2020 Free Agency Spending Spree Thoughts

    The Atlanta Hawks were arguably the most aggressive team when it came to free agency. With Trae Young being one of the up-and-coming stars in the league, Atlanta needed to make some moves. If you follow Trae on any of his social media pages, you know he wants to win. Next year, the Hawks can offer Young his max deal, but they must decide what to do with John Collins. Collins has stated he wants a max deal, but it seems like the Hawks aren’t thinking about it. Atlanta spent a lot of money and one has to wonder if the Hawks are looking to trade John Collins?
