Every year, Sports Illustrated gives annual awards to teams and athletes.  This year’s award for Team of the Year was given to the Milwaukee Bucks.  Despite falling short of their goal to win a championship, the Bucks were given the award due to their involvement in social justice movements. On August 26, prior to Game Five of the opening round of the NBA Playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks made the unprecedented decision to boycott the game in protest of the officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake in Kensoha, Wisconsin.  After deciding to boycott the game, the Bucks’ players released the following statement:…

Every year, NBA.com gives all 30 NBA general managers a survey.  This survey asks for their predictions for post season awards and finishes in addition to rating the offseason moves.  In a somewhat surprising result, Giannis Antetokounmpo was picked as the most likely to win MVP.  The two-time reigning MVP recently signed a five-year $224 million supermax contract extension to stay with Milwaukee.  If he does end up winning MVP this season, he would join Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, and Larry Bird as the only players to win three straight MVP Awards.  Last season, Giannis joined Michael Jordan and Hakeem…

The Green Bay Packers are having one of the best offensive season in the NFL this season.  They currently are second in the NFL in yards per game and lead the league in points per game.  Much of this production is due to the play of Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams.  While Rodgers gains the most publicity as he races for his third MVP Award, often overlooked is the fact the Davante Adams should be considered for the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year Award. Davante Adams’ Season Davante Adams is having one of the best receiving seasons in the…

From 2001-2011, the Milwaukee Brewers had three primary first baseman. Richie Sexson manned the bag from 2001-2003, mashing 133 home runs and driving in 398 runs. His replacement, Lyle Overbay, manned first for two years. Overbay, in his first stint with the Brewers, hit .288 with 35 home runs and 159 RBI. From 2006-2011, Prince Fielder was the perennial starter. One of the best players to don a Brewers uniform, Fielder hit .282/.390/.540 with 230 home runs and 656 RBI in six full seasons with the team before departing in free agency. Since then, there has been a different first…

The Brewers writers at wisportsheroics.com have come together to tackle some of the pressing offseason questions that face the Milwaukee Brewers.  In this edition of our collaboration series, Sam, Anna, Corey, and John tackle the question, which Brewer is most poised for a strong comeback in 2021? Sam’s Candidate for a Strong Comeback There are plenty of ways that I can answer this, but I think that the former MVP himself, Christian Yelich, is due for a strong 2021 season. Yelich was, to say the least, not himself all season last year, yet somehow he remains one of the best hitters in the…

The Packers started the 2020 season with the offense carrying the team to a 4-0 record through its first four weeks.  After losing their Week Six game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 38-10, rumblings started on social media regarding the job security of Mike Pettine.  Indeed, the Packers’ defense, in recent years, has been notorious for struggling against the run.  Za’Darius Smith, Preston Smith, and Kenny Clark did not get to the quarterback as often as they did in 2019.  Jaire Alexander was, and is, putting together a great season at cornerback; but, for the most part, the defense was…

2020 was a year of many changes in Major League Baseball.  Some were well-received, some were not.  One of the changes that many were excited for was the first ever All-MLB Teams.  Like the All-NBA Teams in basketball and All-Pro Teams in football, the All-MLB Teams were partially voted on by the fans, but also included votes from a panel of experts.  After winning the NL Rookie of the Year Award and NL Reliever of the Year Award, many assumed Brewers’ star pitcher Devin Williams would be named to the All-MLB First Team.  Like many Wisconsin sports stars, though, Williams…

While they weren’t the best team by any stretch last season, they managed to sneak into the playoffs for the…

The Marquette Golden Eagles and Wisconsin Badgers met for the 127th time in the history of their in-state rivalry.  This matchup is lowkey one of the most entertaining and hard-fought rivalry games in the nation.  Tonight’s game was a perfect example as to why.  Neither team led by more than six points at any point in the game.  However, it was the unranked Golden Eagles who came away with a grinding win. Marquette was led by freshman forward Justin Lewis, who tipped in DJ Carton’s missed free throw at the buzzer to give the Golden Eagles the 67-65 win.  Lewis…
