2020-2021 NBA Season Predictions
Ranking the 2020-21 NBA City Edition Jerseys

Ranking the 2020-21 NBA City Edition Jerseys

December 23, 2020

The NBA City Edition jerseys have been a treat for every basketball fan since their introduction prior to the 2017-18 season. The novelty uniforms incorporate elements from a franchise’s history, city, or local community. I’ve decided to tackle the controversial task of ranking each jersey by focusing on its design while also taking a look at the rich history it may represent. If you would like to submit your own rankings of this year’s City jerseys, send them to my gmail at [email protected] 20. Denver Nuggets The third and final edition of Denver’s rainbow jersey. The jersey is good, but it is not as good as their first and second rainbow jerseys, which replicated the throwback Nuggets jersey more clearly and offered a nicer design. 19. Brooklyn Nets To appreciate the Nets’ city jersey, one must take a look at the design’s underlying meaning. These uniforms pay homage to the life and legacy of local artist Jean-Michel Basquait by featuring signature references to his art and artistic style. The colorful splash pops against the black and creates a distinctive design. 18. Minnesota Timberwolves Straying from the Prince-inspired city jerseys of years past, the Timberwolves bring out a sleek and asymmetrical design that’s inspired by the North Star. While some say the uniform is boring, I’d say it is a nice change of pace for Minnesota and will look amazing on the court. 17. Dallas Mavericks A neon pegasus statue located in downtown Dallas offered the inspiration for this year’s Mavericks City Edition jerseys. The design is certainly better than what they have worn the last couple of years, and offers a step in the right direction for what might soon be one of the forefront teams in the league.

The Embodiment of Argentina: A Tribute to Diego Armando Maradona

The Embodiment of Argentina: A Tribute to Diego Armando Maradona

December 22, 2020

Diego Maradona, one of the greatest Argentine football players of all time, died on November 25th, 2020 of cardiac arrest. Maradona was one of a kind, and his legend lives on. He was a world champion with the Argentinian National team in 1986, a savior in Napoli, and was as hated as he was adored.  The death of "el Pibe de Oro" ("the Golden Kid"), as Argentinians continue to call him, has brought deep antagonism among football fans. Few athletes will have nurtured so zealously the two opposing hotbeds of supporterism, love, and hate as much as him. The perpetrator of the "hand of God" goal, the protégé of the Neapolitan mafia, the friend of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, the incurable cocaine addict, was not an altar boy or a model of virtue. Diego Maradona personified his country with his cunningness and fondness for upsetting the established order—he was Argentina.

With fan attendance consistently dwindling at Tropicana Field in recent years, the Rays could only support a payroll roughly a third the size of the biggest spending teams. In a last-ditch effort to find a tactical advantage, the Rays leaned into baseball's emerging field of statcast analytics to ameliorate their player development, evaluation, and in-game strategy.

Chocolate Lava Cake Recipe

Chocolate Lava Cake Recipe

December 22, 2020

There are two main methods for making chocolate lava cake. The first is by inserting a cylinder of ganache in the middle of the cake batter so that when it is placed in the oven, the batter cooks while the ganache melts. The second is made by creating a thin cake batter and only cooking the cake until the edges have firmed, leaving some of the batter in the middle as lava. The recipe below is the latter. Ingredients ½ cup butter 4 oz chocolate (I recommend mixing bittersweet and semisweet) 1 ¼ cups powdered sugar 2 whole eggs 3 egg yolks 1 tsp vanilla extract

The Movies to Watch for in 2021

The Movies to Watch for in 2021

December 22, 2020

2020 has been a strange year for the movie industry. Due to the pandemic, many of the films that were planned for release this year have been postponed to the next. With 2021 quickly arriving, it seems pertinent to review some of the movies set for release in the upcoming year: both those intentionally so and those delayed by the coronavirus. Here are seven films to look out for, in chronological order of their currently announced release date. (Over half of them feature Timothée Chalamet, in most of which he plays the starring role: what can you do, he’s good-looking.)
