Green Bay Packers, David Bakhtiari

It appears that David Bakhtiari’s time with the Green Bay Packers is coming to an end. The three-time Pro Bowl left tackle, who has also made five All-Pro teams (two First Team All-Pros and three Second Team All-Pros) has missed the majority of the last three seasons due to knee injuries. Note: that is the plural form of the word “injury.” Bakhtiari first injured his knee in a non-contact drill during practice on December 31, 2020. He suffered a torn ACL that cost him the entire 2021 season, except for playing a few snaps in the season finale against the…

Milwaukee Bucks, Damian Lillard, Skip Bayless

Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Damian Lillard won the NBA three-point contest as part of All-Star Weekend for the second year in a row. Competing with Bucks teammate Malik Beasley against six other NBA stars, Lillard displayed the clutch shooting tendencies that have made him one of the most popular and fun to watch stars in the league. Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young, Indian Pacers guard (and Oshkosh, Wisconsin native) Tyrese Haliburton, and Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl Anthony-Towns all scored 26 in their opening round. Beasley was eliminated when he only scored 20, while Jalen Brunson of the New York…

Milwaukee Bucks, Damian Lillard, Giannis Antetokounmpo

The 2023-24 NBA season has been a figurative roller coaster for Milwaukee Bucks point guard Damian Lillard. Despite his desire to be traded, leaving the Portland Trailblazers was not an easy thing to do. Moving halfway across the country just weeks before the regular season could not have been easy. Add in the news that he and his wife, the mother of his three children, are getting divorced and, well, it was a tough time. The regular season, too, has not gone how Lillard or anyone in the Bucks organization may have initially envisioned. Lillard is averaging 24.6 points per…

Milwaukee Brewers, Rhys Hoskins, Corbin Burnes

The Milwaukee Brewers made a big splash in free agency when they signed first baseman Rhys Hoskins. The right-handed slugger missed all of 2023 with a torn ACL, but .246/.332/.462 with 30 home runs and 79 RBI when he last played in 2022. Had the Phillies not moved two-time National League MVP Bryce Harper to first base. Hoskins’ addition to the team is going to a big boost to a Brewers offense that has struggled to produce in the postseason. His two-year $34 million contract (with a player option for 2025) was a big deal for the penny-pinching Brewers, but…

Green Bay Packers, Jordan Love

The Green Bay Packers had many goals in 2023, but there was one that stood out above the rest in terms of the future for the franchise: will Jordan Love be good enough to be the next franchise quarterback? The answer, of course, was a resounding “yes” as he had a better first season as a starter than either Aaron Rodgers or Brett Favre. Everything else, the winning record, the playoff spot, an unexpected win over the Dallas Cowboys in the wild card round? All bonuses compared to knowing that the quarterback position, once again, is in good hands for…

Green Bay Packers, Jordan Love, Matt LaFleur

The Green Bay Packers were one of the biggest surprises in the NFL this season, especially in the final 10 games. After starting 2-5, Green Bay rattled off seven wins in their final 10 games to capture the seventh and final spot in the NFC Playoffs. Then they upset the Dallas Cowboys in the wild card in what was a 48-32 blowout victory that wasn’t even as close as the score might make it seem. Green Bay even was in position to knock out the eventual NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round, but a typical Joe Barry…

Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love celebrates with his rookie wide receivers Jayden Reed and Dontayvion Wicks Chicago Bears

The Green Bay Packers were one of the biggest surprises in the NFL this season. Not many predicted that they would be very competitive in their first year after trading Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets. However, Jordan Love proved that, once again, Green Bay has a knack for drafting and developing quarterbacks, finishing the season with a 64.2% completion percentage, 4,159 passing yards, 32 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, and a passer rating of 96.1. Love and the Packers improved on the 2022 season by finishing 9-8 and clinching the final spot in the NFC Playoffs. Furthermore, they upset the…

Milwaukee Brewers, Brewers News, Brewers Rumors, Christian Yelich

Milwaukee Brewers baseball is nearly upon us. On Wednesday February 14, Valentine’s Day of all days, pitchers and catchers reported to Arizona for spring training. The 2024 Brewers, of course, will look much different than the 2023 version. Former manager Craig Counsell now manages Milwaukee’s biggest rival, the Chicago Cubs. Corbin Burnes was traded to the Baltimore Orioles for left-handed pitcher DL Hall and infielder Joey Ortiz. Furthermore, Brandon Woodruff was non-tendered and remains a free agent after shoulder injuries cost him most of 2023 and could jeopardize his career. Rowdy Tellez is gone and has been replaced by Rhys…

Milwaukee Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo

The Milwaukee Bucks starting backcourt of Damian Lillard and Malik Beasley will be participating in the three-point contest as part of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend. Lillard, who won the event last season, is the favorite to win while Beasley is tied for the second-best odds with Indiana Pacers star Tyrese Halliburton. Should either Lillard or Beasley emerge victorious in the three-point contest, they will be just the second Bucks player ever to win it. Ray Allen won the event back in 2001. The three-point contest will be sponsored by the soft drink Starry. It just so happens that the celebrity…

Milwaukee Bucks, Patrick Beverley, Danillo Gallinari

New Milwaukee Bucks combo guard Patrick Beverley is one of the most entertaining personalities in the NBA (that is, when he is on your team). When news broke that he had been traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Bucks, it was not the typical NBA insiders, Adrian Wojnarowski or Shams Charania, who were the first to post the story. Instead, it was Beverley himself on his own podcast. Since coming to Milwaukee, Beverley has inserted himself as a team leader, sometimes grabbing a clipboard during timeouts to help coach up the younger players (and Giannis Antetokounmpo) on the roster.…
