The Detroit Rapper, Eminem, was at the Detroit Pistons Little Ceasers Arena Debut after the Pistons spent almost 40 years playing in the suburbs of Detroit.

Eminem was given the mic, for a pre-game speech and had a chance to say something to all the Pistons Fans. Eminem Hyped up Detroit by saying  “Detroit, welcome them back for the first time in over 40 years to our city, to my city, to your city! Make some noise for the Detroit Pistons. Let’s go!”

Big Sean was also at the game, who got to hang out with Eminem where they got a chance to get their picture taken:

Bold Predictions: The Pistons Will Make The Playoffs, 3 Reasons Why

The Pistons have made some changes to their team this offseason and lots of people are doubting the Pistons and the changes they’ve been making.

The Pistons lost 2 of their starters, Marcus Morris to a trade, and KCP was a free agent who signed with the Lakers. The Marcus Morris trade was pretty even, The Celtics got Marcus Morris and the Pistons got Avery Bradley, who is one of the top defensive players in the league.

As a Pistons fan, I am not so sure that they will make the playoffs but if they do, here are the top 3 reasons the Pistons will make the playoffs.

1.Luke Kennard will win rookie of the year

The Pistons rookie Luke Kennard is expected to have a pretty good season but my prediction is he’ll be rookie of the year and will lead the Pistons to the playoffs

2. Andre Drummond Will Be An All-Star Again

Two years ago when the Pistons made the playoffs, Andre had a pretty good season and lead the Pistons to the playoffs, but since then it seems like he isn’t enjoying playing on the Pistons. I think he will possibly bounce back.

3.  Stanley Johnson will be comeback player of the year

I’ve had high hopes for Stanley Johnson and I believe he will have a pretty good season and start the majority of the games.

Kyrie Wants Out Of Cleveland…..

The Cavs have quickly been in the news this offseason as the Cavs sign Derrick Rose, But most importantly Kyrie wants out of Cleveland. In many peoples Opinions, Kyrie was the Cavs second best player behind “King James” and The Cavs might need some help getting to the finals for the 4th straight year.

They have already picked up one player coming from the New York Knicks, G Derrick Rose to possibly take Kyries Spot

How do you think The Cavs Will Play Without Kyrie?

OKC Gaurd, Westbrook Wins MVP

OKC Gaurd, Russel westbrook has won the NBA Kia most valuable player award. Russel was competing with James Harden and Kawhi Leonard for the award but in my opinion I think Westbrook was the only player that deserved it after averaging a triple- double.

Westbrook  beat out Harden by a big amount as Westbrook had 69 first place votes compared to Harden 22 votes. Do you think Westbrook deserves the award?

The 76ers Select…. Markelle Fultz!

The Phillidelphia 76ers have selected Markelle Fultz as the number on pick in the NBA draft.

The 76ers traded up with Boston to get the number one pick in the NBA Draft. Fultz player guard at Washington and here’s what he said after being picked “When I heard my name called … it was like God calling me,”  Fultz will be chasing the rookie of the Year award with the 76ers after finishing as one of the best College players and has lots of NBA potential.

Cavs Survive Game 4, Warriors Lead Series 3-1 

After a great performance by Kyrie Irving and a triple double by Lebron, The Cavs survive game 4 to stay in the series! The Cavaliers dominated throughout the game as the Warriors couldn’t keep up after dominating the first three games.

This most likely wont happen, but I am hoping the Cavs will somehow comeback and win the series, I would be amazed, especially against a super team! My predictions are a little different. I believe the Warriors will finish the series by winning game 5.

What Does A Finals Loss Mean For Lebron?

Lebron James is one of the greatest players off all time, but is he the greatest? How much will this championship effect his legacy? 

The Cavs are down 2-0 in the finals and this could possibly effect his legacy, but here is what I think. He will never be the best of all time! Although I was to young to ever watch Jordan play, I think Jordan will always be the best.
