NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the decision that was made today by the NBA Board of Governors to deny relocation of the Sacramento Kings. A huge victory for the city of Sacramento, the NBA Board of Governors voted 22-8 against relocation. And while that was a tough blow for Seattle fans to soak in, today was much more than trying to get the Kings, it was also a day when we could potentially hear about the likelihood of NBA expansion into Seattle.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you five rookies that he expects to make an impact for the Seattle Seahawks in 2013. Players like Earl Thomas, Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Marshawn Lynch, and Kam Chancellor all give Seattle a shot at reaching another Super Bowl. And though the plethora of talent across the board is great for the direction the team is headed, it often creates a tough environment for rookies to really break out in. Watch for Jesse Williams and Chris Harper in 2013.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Richard Sherman’s latest adventure that saw him take his jet ski for a ride to the VMAC, where Seattle was holding its rookie minicamp. What may sound like a reality show in the making actually occurred this past weekend, as standout cornerback Richard Sherman decided to head over to the VMAC (Virginia Mason Athletic Center) to check out how this years’ rookie camp was progressing.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Oklahoma City’s recent use of Macklemore’s hit song ‘Can’t Hold Us’ and how it has sparked a response from the Seattle rapper. Aside from vocalizing his support for Seattle sports teams, Macklemore is also a good friend of Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and has been an avid supporter of bringing the Supersonics back. Performing at the Sonics’ rally that was held awhile back, Macklemore recently showed his support for the Sonics’ cause at Seattle’s ‘We Day’.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson tells you why the Oregon Ducks football program has a very good chance at going undefeated in their next season. The Ducks football program, in recent years, has been the figurehead of college football in the northwest and Pac-12. While an undefeated season is a lofty goal for any college football program, Oregon could realistically achieve this feat in 2013.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gets you up to date on the hilarity that has become Sacramento’s attempt to keep their Kings and the way they have called out the city of Seattle. “This was the middle finger to Sacramento,” writes Voison. “This was scummy and dirty, was over the top and down in the gutter, and frankly was a classic example of why so many folks are turned off by professional sports. What do you tell the kids? Seriously.”
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Seattle’s woeful 3-4-5 in their starting rotation. As good as things have been going for the Mariners as of late, there is still a glaring error on the team that may prevent them from making a push and potentially surpassing the .500 mark in the coming weeks: the back-end of their five-man rotation. Whats in store for Aaron Harang, James Paxton, Danny Hultzen, Joe Saunders and others?
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson details who he thinks will be the 2013 defensive starters for the Oregon Ducks football team. Losing seniors is tough, but when some of the top talent on your team, it gets even tougher. The absences of Michael Clay, Kiko Alonso, Dion Jordan, and Isaac Remington will surely be felt next year, especially with the four of them taking two valuable players from the defensive line and linebacking corps.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his prediction of Oregon’s offensive starters in 2013. Though the Oregon Ducks’ 2013 college football campaign is still just about four months away, it’s time to start breaking down a team that could very well see themselves in the final BCS National Championship Game (thank the college football gods). Returning stars such as Marcus Mariota and De’Anthony Thomas obviously make it into the starting rotation but there are a few players who may be new to you.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his keys to the Mariners’ series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Looking at their record right now, the Mariners stand at 13-17 and are currently five games back of the AL West leading Texas Rangers. Michael Saunders made his return this past week, picking up where he left off and looks as though he will be a solid player in 2013. Though it may still relatively early, the way he is swinging the bat is very promising. And it’s not only Saunders who is currently heating up.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson predicts what Seattle’s defensive line will look like in 2013. The Seahawks were one of the top defenses in the league last year. Allowing just 306.2 yards per game, 5.1 yards per play, 15.3 points per game, 103.1 rushing yards per game, and 203.1 passing yards per game, you’d think Seattle would have managed to get to the quarterback more often than not. But that wasn’t really the case.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson recaps Oregon’s 2013 spring football game. And boy was it a show. Giving points for both offensive and defensive achievements, the Oregon offense looked in usual form as they overpowered the Oregon defense by a score of 65-10. This game gave us several opportunities to be in awe over the further development of players like Marcus Mariota, Josh Huff, and Bralon Addison.
