This NBA off-season is going to be one of the most explosive to date. There will be big-name free agents on the market along with some enticing trade targets lurking. Gargantuan names like Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant (potentially) will be on the market. I don't have a crystal ball to determine where these stars will go and I doubt I will get one pick right. But here it goes, anyways: Where will the big names land?
Guess who won the Super Bowl again? The New England Patriots did it again as Tom Brady collected yet another Infinity Stone. What do the Patriots need to do to make half the NFL disappear en route to another Super Bowl?
Behind their high flying offense, the Rams made it all the way to the Super Bowl. That same offense didn't show up for Super Bowl 53, but the Rams still have a bright future ahead of them. What do the Rams need to do to hoist the Lombardi trophy?
Let's just cut to the chase. These are the teams that won the draft and the teams that blew it.
The NFL Draft went down yesterday with plenty of noteworthy headlines. What went down as the first round of the NFL Draft happened in Music City?
Everybody, myself included, was expecting the Golden State Warriors to waltz through the league en route to their fourth NBA title in five years. However, the Los Angeles Clippers have shown us a few things on how to take down the Warriors. Granted, Golden State will probably go on to win the series. However, those pesky Clippers have provided a bit of a blueprint on taking down the juggernaut. Here's how the Clippers pulled off two wins against the Warriors so far.
This edition of Nostalgia Game Review takes a look at the Konami game, Contra, for the NES. As you can see (especially by my past few reviews), Konami made a good amount of well-known NES games. This game was released in 1987 and was one of the hardest games to ever come out for the NES. After all, you get only one shot until you lose a life.
Difficulty aside, this game is well-versed in interactive maps and weaponry. The power-ups you get in this game are diverse, ranging from a flamethrower to a spread shoot (perhaps the most useful power-up in the game). You go through eight stages, trying to eradicate an alien race threatening humanity.
This game had an arcade version, which featured more animated sprites of Bill and Lance, the two playable heroes in the game. This was due to the NES's graphical limitations. The game also features "3D view" stages, where the player infiltrates a base to progress. The bosses aren't complex to take down, but offer different ways of fighting.
The gameplay is nice and easy to pick up despite the game's difficulty. There's even a "Konami code" for players who've never played Contra before. You can get more lives or even an infinite amount of lives if you're struggling with the game. The game is a test for the most hardcore gamer, but is a crash back into reality for the casual gamer. If you like a good challenge and aren't afraid of taking a risk or two (or three or four), Contra is the game for you.
Damian Lillard single handily eliminated the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, dropping 50 points, including this 37-foot dime at the buzzer.
Considering that Dame wants to be a Trail Blazer for life, this makes this story even better. One of the most underrated NBA superstars, Lillard deserves much more praise for putting Portland on the map. This is true since he's also one of the most clutch NBA stars today. I hope that Portland makes one NBA Finals appearance with Lillard around. This franchise deserves it.
I know, the first full month of the MLB season isn't even in the books. However, that doesn't mean we can look at the potential trade targets for teams that are surprisingly lagging behind. Who should be dealt if their teams can't pick up the pace?
The Kansas City Chiefs were a score away from heading to the Super Bowl, losing to the New England Patriots in overtime of the AFC Championship game. What can the Chiefs do to win it all and hop over the competition?
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
