Finally, the 71st NBA season is upon us and we can tuck into some action.
Some are forecasting one of the more predictable campaigns in a long time and tipping the Golden State Warriors as sure things for the NBA Championship. The bookmakers are in agreement with Golden State favorites through bet365 NBA betting odds of 5/6 and it’s hard to envision any other team lifting the Larry O’Brien Trophy at the end of the season.
That’s what happens when you sign a six-time All-NBA Selection and four-time single-season scoring leader in Kevin Durant.

The Cleveland Cavaliers earned a convincing 4-0 series clean sweep against the Detroit Pistons in the opening round of this year’s NBA playoffs but can LeBron James and co. go on to win the title? Well, they’re certainly hitting form at the right moment and the Cavaliers definitely have enough star quality to challenge the likes of Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs for the crown. If nothing else, Cleveland have difference-makers on both sides of the ball and their top talents can more or less win matches by themselves when they are at their very best.
With the Golden State Warriors on the cusp of securing their place in the next round of the playoffs, Cleveland will have it all to do if they are to emerge victorious at the end of what could be a gruelling postseason. The Cavaliers have a much easier route to the NBA Finals than the defending champions, especially as Golden State – who may be without Stephen Curry for the next few weeks – could face the San Antonio Spurs in the not-so-distant future. If nothing else, Cleveland could take advantage of the less testing schedule and the Cavs may be fresher for the seven-match series for the title. Read the rest of this entry »

Could you imagine that the sports that you play could make you a millionaire? Sports were once something you do to relax, have a rest from a daily routine. It was never considered a serious job.

Many famous sports stars have enjoyed success marketing themselves in the world of games. Often, sports players will act as the cover stars for games to promote them. Examples of this are Lionel Messi on the front of the FIFA games, and the EA sports game – Rory McIlroy PGA Tour. The famous ex-basketball star, Shaquille O’Neal, has also offered his name to slot machines and blackjack. With Kobe Bryant about to retire, could he follow the same path as his “frenemy” and former teammate?
What makes branching out to casino games the perfect yet untrodden path for a retired sports star? At the moment the online casino business is booming, with slot machines being one of the most popular games around. The modern slot machine is designed in such a way that makes it ideal to be sponsored by stars, TV shows, or films, as each slot machine has its own theme. The design of the slot machine is very much based around its theme, so the Jurassic World game at 32Red slots uses dinosaur symbols on the reels, and the Incredible Hulk slot at Slot-Mania features cut scenes from the film along with Hulk-themed icons.

Turn on any nationally televised San Antonio Spurs home game, and you’ll hear a woman screaming and cheering for her team the entire time. “Wooooooooooo!” “Come on, Timmy!” “Go LaMarcus!”.

I just hope the Spurs do the right thing and revoke (or at least relocate) her season tickets. Read the rest of this entry »

I understand nothing except “Kristaps Porzingis” in the entire song, but it’s currently in heavy rotation in my iTunes or Apple Music or whatever the kids are calling it these days. Peep the commercial and the full song after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
