De’Aaron Fox is becoming ‘that guy,’ but he needs to refine this part of his game

As the Sacramento Kings wind down the remainder of the regular season, they must take pride in the positives to date. This includes the recent dominant play of De’Aaron Fox, who just needs to refine this one part of his game. De’Aaron Fox was taken fifth overall in the 2017 NBA Draft with the expectation of becoming one of the new faces of the Sacramento Kings franchise. The Kings were confident that with that fifth pick, they had selected one of the better players of the draft. Let’s see the s

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the MCU’s most underrated film, and here’s why

Did the film reach its potential? No. Could it have been better? Absolutely. But Avengers: Age of Ultron had a significant impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and here’s why it’s the MCU’s most underrated film. I remember the level of excitement for Marvel’s The Avengers sequel being unprecedented. Fans anxiously awaited the first glimpse of Avengers: Age of Ultron. From the announcement of Ultron as the villain at San Diego Comic-Con to the leaked trailer footage that Marvel Studios amusingly blamed on “Hydra,” fans could not wait to see if the sequel could be better than its predecessor.

The Las Vegas Raiders have an elite tight end trio now and into the future

As we look towards Sin City heading into the 2020 season, the Las Vegas Raiders boast an elite trio of tight ends that are locked in from now into the future. The Las Vegas Raiders will be hard at work amongst the draft and during free agency to make upgrades throughout the roster. In a division that now includes the reigning Super Bowl champion, it's up to Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock to continue building this team to match the competition. But to make both their lives easier, they already have

How Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series are correcting the mistakes from Netflix

We’ve yet to see one minute of Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series, but fans should be excited about how the studio has already corrected the mistakes of past Netflix shows. Continuing its annual tradition of getting screentime during the NFL’s biggest game of the year, Marvel Studios leveraged the opportunity to release tv spots for their upcoming 2020 content. Fans expected a new spot showcasing May’s Black Widow, but you’d be smart to bet that fans were more excited for the reveal in the fourth quarter.

Why the Las Vegas Raiders should choose strategy over splash

The Las Vegas Raiders are about to commence in a potential franchise-changing offseason. Whether its the draft or through free agency, the Silver and Black first and foremost must think 'strategy' over 'splash'. There is plenty to be excited about as the Las Vegas Raiders look towards the 2020 NFL season. A new stadium, a solid core of players that exceeded expectations last year, and assets to leverage in the coming offseason. The Raiders exceeded expectations in 2019, but now they can raise e

Golden State Warriors: How Andrew Wiggins fills a desperate roster need

Bigger Disappointment: Bagley’s Injuries or the Kings’ Continued Playoff Drought?

With plenty of excitement and increased expectations at the start, this season for Sacramento Kings has been a disappointment. Which reality is tougher to stomach: another year added to the playoff drought or Marvin Bagley III’s nagging injuries? Fans are quick to forget how the Sacramento Kings’ performed down the stretch late last season. They forget how they went 3-7 in their remaining ten games of the season. They forget the ugly losses they accumulated along the way (see the Brooklyn Nets’

Recapping the 2019 Oakland Raiders Position Groups: Tight Ends

The Las Vegas Raiders have a group of tight ends with high potential heading into next season, and they owe it to the breakout performance of the group in 2019. With a 7-9 record in 2019, the Las Vegas Raiders improved by three wins in their last season in Oakland, overcoming the hurdles thrown their way both on and off the field. Even though they lost five of their remaining six games, one could argue that the Raiders overachieved given their unforgiving travel schedule, the revolving door at

Grading the 2019 Oakland Raiders: Defensive end Maxx Crosby

Finding gems in the draft is a sign of good fortune for NFL teams, and the Las Vegas Raiders found one in Maxx Crosby. Here's a review of the strong season of the defensive standout. The elite franchises in the NFL separate themselves by seizing opportunities that others fail to capitalize on. The draft is an excellent example of this: in the first round, you either hit the mark in drafting an immediate franchise impact player, or you don't. But in the middle of the draft, the third, fourth, an

Making the case for Deborah Chow to direct Captain Marvel 2

Marvel Studios announced that a sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel is officially in the works, but a new director will be needed to helm the project. Luckily for the studio, they don’t need to look far for a viable candidate. The Marvel Cinematic Universe boasted three feature films in 2019 to pass the one billion mark at the box office, and among them was Captain Marvel. The studio’s first feature film with a female superhero in the leading role (Brie Larson portraying the titular character) ushered in a new era of Marvel movies. The expectation was that Captain Marvel would become an integral piece to lead the MCU into the next phase. And according to news announced this week, we’ll be seeing her again in the not so distant future.

New York Knicks: Should we be pleased with the development of RJ Barrett?

As we inch closer and closer to the halfway point of the regular season, we’ve now seen the top three picks of the 2019 draft in action (after Zion Williamson‘s debut last night). For the New York Knicks‘ RJ Barrett, the third overall pick, how do we assess his development to date? The NBA season is a marathon as opposed to a sprint, and rookies are particularly made aware of this through their first season in the league. There’s still plenty of basketball left to be played, but the general con

Grading the 2019 Oakland Raiders: WR Hunter Renfrow

The Oakland Raiders selected Hunter Renfrow in the fifth round of the 2019 draft, pegged to be a threat in the slot. By season's end, he became the top receiver for the Silver and Black. With new General Manager Mike Mayock in the fold for year two of Jon Gruden's second run with the Oakland Raiders, changing the culture was the focus for the 2019 NFL Draft. It is a somewhat "cliche" phrase used by many, but it's a necessary goal for a franchise to return to relevance. Culture changing players

How The Rise of Skywalker’s ‘big moment’ could have taken a cue from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

An enjoyable, albeit somewhat uneven film, The Rise of Skywalker in its ‘biggest moment’ could have taken a nod from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s own big film earlier in the year. As they say, hindsight is 20/20, and perhaps I’m in the minority when writing this but...when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker released its final trailer just ahead of its December 2019 release I was, for lack of a better word, unimpressed? Or perhaps, in layman’s terms, I just wasn’t as “hyped” as I feel I should have been.

Golden State Warriors: Damion Lee’s contract displays his core worth

Richaun Holmes is the Kings’ true All-Star candidate

Scroll through your Sacramento Kings’ social media timeline and chances are you’ll find Sactown pushing for De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, and Marvin Bagley to make the trip to Chicago for the NBA’s All-Star Game. The last King to get All-Star recognition was DeMarcus Cousins back in 2017. The likelihood of a King making the All-Star Game this year might be slim, but injuries and the possibility of coaches voting in reserves leave some semblance of hope. And while on name recognition and stats alon

What should we expect (and want) from Season Two of The Mandalorian?

The season finale of The Mandalorian was the exclamation point on a spectacular first season and opened the door for new plot points and storylines in season two. What should fans expect (and want) for the future? By the time season two of The Mandalorian hits Disney+ in the fall of 2020, Baby Yoda may very well be called “Toddler Yoda.” All jokes aside, despite filming already underway for season two, the return of Star Wars’ live-action series feels farther than ever, leaving plenty of time for fans to speculate what we can expect.

Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos: 3 things to watch in Week 17

The Oakland Raiders close out the season against the division rival Denver Broncos. Here are three things to watch for in Week 17 with high stakes. The Oakland Raiders close out an "eventful" season to say the least, on the road, against their division rival Denver Broncos. While so many teams already view the final game on their schedule with little significance, the Silver and Black, on the contrary, have much to play for in Week 17. That in of itself is a testament to the obstacles these Rai

Buddy Hield’s solution to his recent shooting struggles: getting to the foul-line

The Sacramento Kings have been working to build chemistry as they welcome back players from injury, and in the aftermath, we’ve seen Buddy Hield’s shot hit a dry spell. When the shot isn’t falling outside, it’s time to go inside. If the Sacramento Kings were to finally break the longest active playoff drought in the NBA (13 seasons), many figured it wouldn’t come easy, especially in Western Conference. Yet even though this year’s west has been incredibly top-heavy, the Kings have still found th
