Podcast Shanks – Mavs and Thunder Free Agency

NBA free agency is always one of the more excitement and in many cases, tense times of year. Contenders can be reduced to bottom feeders with the devastating loss of a superstar while other teams who may be on the bubble could surge ahead thanks to a key acquisition. Or, you could just be the damn Warriors and Spurs and sign everybody…

For teams who don’t have that luxury, however, Darreck Kirby and Brennan Scala of Podcast Shanks take a look at the prospects for the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder and discuss how they can try to get back in the thick of contention.

But if Dallas intends to compete for that final playoff spot, they’ll have to find a way to get it done away from the AAC as 7 of their final 12 games will be on the road. Wednesday night, they found a way to beat a good team in the road unis. [Read more…]

5 Superstars We’d Love to See in NXT

Functioning as the WWE’s developmental brand, NXT is often viewed as a throwback to the days of territorial wrestling, where new talent can be groomed over time rather than thrown before millions while they are still green.
