Giannis Antetokounmpo Is Overrated

February 13, 2021

Yes I said it. The Greek Freak is overrated. Those MVP awards he won reminds of me when Steve Nash robbed Kobe of the award back in 2006.

Salvation for Cleveland

Just like the 2004 Boston Red Sox, the curse that has plagued the city of Cleveland, Ohio’s sports teams was not going to end without an exorcism.
