Then quick hits discussion and analysis of the current NBA /NFL standings and schedule. The hot Celtics and Saints are questioned for longevity and if anyone saw this coming in the preseason. Enjoy the hyper-focused and condensed 15-minute version of Sports 360!  

NBA’s Star Rookies

This year’s NBA rookie talent is at an all-time high chock full of new prospects and promising futures. While most people were focused on Lonzo Ball and the phenomena that was created around him, new faces like Markelle Fultz, Jayson Tatum, and Ben Simmons are all proving that they are worth the hype. The NBA offseason was insane this year due to the amount of offseason trades and new acquisitions which created only more anticipation for opening night. Knowingly, the teams with the worst seasons of the previous year have the highest chance of gaining new talent in hopes to revitalize their franchise. This season, may have the most potential of turning the dominant tide in both the Western and Eastern Conferences.

Sports 360 Episode 5: Hot Takes

In episode 5 of Sports 360, Ryan and John are joined by Nate Talan, Nick Talan, Max Burke, and Mike Leaman. This large cast allows an opportunity for more commentary on multiple pressing issues like “Super Teams” and the NBA becoming competitive again. The Houston Astros were just crowned the World Series Championship on Wednesday. Game 5 between the Astros and Dodgers may have been one of the best Series games in its history. NFL updates are given, in addition to early predictions for the AFC and NFC Championships.

Panic in the Meadowlands

The names Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, and Jason Pierre-Paul all have something in common: they all play for the New York Giants and they all have struggled to earn a win this season. This isn’t like them. In years past, most notably, 2007 and 2011, they twice beat the NFL powerhouse the New England Patriots, and star quarterback Eli Manning nailed down two Super Bowl MVPs. In this 2017 season, they haven’t played nearly as good compared to those in years past. This isn’t something that is new to this team.

The NBA’s Fashion Statement

The NBA recently made the decision to switch from Adidas to Nike to be their brand ambassador when playing in alternate jerseys. These jerseys can be flashy and representative of their respective cities and teams, and some of them plain looking and seemingly fitting (no pun intended) of their franchises, have mixed reviews. A team’s jersey is significant, it’s more than just a number and name recognition. Jerseys resemble and represent the state and city. The jersey itself is a statement to their fans and to other teams.

The NBA is famous for having fashionable and iconic jerseys with some teams having several alternate and throwback jerseys.
