Sam Hinkie Loves his Assets

Sam Hinkie watching possible future Sixer? (Dayton Daily News)
This NBA trade deadline was one of the craziest deadlines of all time. It seemed like it was going to be fairly quiet, but then all of a sudden a storm of trades happened. With the likes of Goran Dragic and Brandon Knight being two of the bigger names on the move, the Philadelphia 76ers decided to jump in quickly on the action but trading Michael Carter-Williams and K.J McDaniels. Some Sixer fans probably were there scratching their heads as to what has happened. You would think Michael Carter-Williams and K.J McDaniels would be two building blocks of this team but we know Sam Hinkie loves assets.

The Calm Before the Storm: March Madness

Selection Sunday is a little over a month away. It’s by far my favorite event of the year since I really enjoy watching college basketball. The atmosphere is crazy in the arenas, it’s fun seeing the upsets, and of course the most important thing for a lot of people during this time is the bracket. We all want to be expert bracketologists but March Madness is one of the best sporting events of the year. There are always different storylines and just like any other year, this year is no different. Who will be the Cinderella this year? Well we all know what the first storyline will be. Kentucky’s pursuit of perfection. They are filled with McDonalds All-American players so it will be interesting to see who takes the last shot in crunch time. Besides Kentucky’s pursuit of perfection here are some other teams to keep an eye on.
