    When most kids his age were enthralled by NBA 2K5, Zion Williamson already had his sights on gracing its cover someday. Fast forward 14 years. The dominant force nicknamed “Zanos” by his teammates is on the precipice of both video-game- and real-world NBA stardom.

  • No Dunk Contest Wagering? There’s Still Plenty To Bet On During NBA All-Star Weekend
    The arrival of NBA’s All-Star Weekend is far from the basketball sports betting wasteland one might initially assume. Yes, the six-day break in the regular season brings a departure from the nightly smorgasbord of games to choose from. Yet there’s actually still plenty of hardwood action to plunk cash down on. No other professional league has managed to turn their All-Star proceedings into as dynamic and multi-layered an event as the NBA. By the time the actual All-Star game rolls around Sunday...

One New Jersey bettor put his college basketball prognostication to good use over the weekend, turning a $100 wager into a win of almost $45,000. The bettor made the 10-team NCAA basketball parlay on BetStars – all moneyline action with accumulated odds of 445.8 to 1.

    The talk of the NBA right now is the All-Star break. This past weekend was pretty glorious, as individual performances lit the league afire and got people talking. From kicks worn in the NBA All-Star game to highlight-reel dunks, everyone hits social media and helps the most brandable sport in the world grow even bigger. Of course, as impactful as each specific player can be, few things hit on a large scale like a new champion. There’s a reason why everyone knows about the Golden State Warriors.

    When you look at how the 2018-2019 NBA season is shaping up, you can’t help but notice something big. The Lakers don’t seem to be where we expected to see them. It seems that simply adding LeBron James to a team of talented youngsters is not the complete recipe for domination in the Western Conference. The Lakers’ troubles have prompted me to revisit some of the recent seasons and see who the main underachievers were. Now, don’t expect to see the Knicks or Suns in there. Although these teams hav...

Some things were left a little open-ended, though. I don’t want to be the guy that hands out Breaking Bad spoilers, but to be fair, the show ended five years ago.
