If you haven't been paying attention, there's a storm a-brewin' in Oklahoma City. Clearly, this team is done tanking, but are we underrating how capable this team is? One of the youngest teams in league history that plays hard with an unselfish and fluid brand of basketball. 10th in defensive rating. 14th in offensive rating. With less than a month...
Far-Fetched Friday: Felix Auger-Aliassime Wins Australian Open
I've never written about tennis, not really that big of a fan of tennis, but I decided to branch out for this week's prediction because why not. My bold prediction is that Felix Auger-Aliassime will win the Australian Open.
Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where every Friday we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This time, we look at a sport I know very little about.
Two factors make this far-fetched. One, Felix is up against tournament favorite Daniil Medvedev in the quarterfinals, a man he has failed to defeat in three attempts.
And secondly, if Felix Auger-Aliassime wins, he'll become only the second black man to win the Australian Open (Arthur Ashe in 1977). And only the third black man to ever win a Grand Slam single's title (Yannick Noah 1983, fun fact, that is Joakim Noah's father).
Auger-Aliassime, at 21 years old, is a 6'4" Togolese-Canadian currently ranked 10th in the World. And this is precisely the extent of my knowledge about the man. But I have a good feeling about this one.
What's my reasoning for why he'll win? I'm not even going to cap- I don't really have one, just want to support a fellow black man. With black history month coming up and the final taking place a few days before on January 30th, I'm trying to cash in all my favors to get this win.
Also, King Richard was a fire movie, so I need this one for the culture.

Predicting the 2023 March Madness Champion
Yes- I, the NCAA March Madness guru, am back to save your bracket. If you've kept up with the series, you're probably asking why I consider myself a guru when I'm one for four in my March Madness predictions. First of all, STOP- don't bring that negative energy here. Second, I'd say I'm two and five since you can't prove...
The Bundesliga has been rightfully coined the 'Bayernsliga' over the last few years as Bayern Munich has stormed to ten straight league titles. Well, I am here to stamp that we will have a new winner of the German League for the first time since Jurgen Klopp's Borrusia Dortmund team took the title in 2011.
