    1. James Harden- Houston Rockets Since being traded to the Rockets in 2012, James Harden leads all shooting guards in points scored, usage percentage, and made free throws. He’s established himself as one of the most dangerous offensive players in the entire NBA, regardless of the position. Harden is about as close to a lock as possible to average 25 points per game next season. From his incredibly high usage percentage, to his lack of a legit number two star around him; it’s almost a lock that Harden will lead all shooting guards in PER, usage percentage, points per game, made free throws, and minutes played. Now, just because Harden puts up the best statistics, does that make him the best shooting guard? The answer is “of course not”. He obliviously has the talent as one of the premiere overall players in the league. Sure, his defense is lackluster to say the least, but he more than makes up for it on the offensive end. In the eyes of the “experts” Harden is coming off of a “bad year” (I didn’t realize averaging 29 points and 7.5 assists per game, while registering a PER of 25.3 was bad). Harden will bounce back from this perception that he is a cancer in the locker room. His defense will improve as well as his overall efficiency, making his ranking as my number-one rated shoot guard more than justifiable. 2. Klay Thompson- Golden State Warriors Klay Thompson’s emergence into superstardom has coincided with the Warriors rapid rise as the NBA’s darling team. Despite…

    It’s official, Al Horford will be a Boston Celtic. That said, it’s now Dwight Howard’s time to shine in Atlanta. The chance that the Hawks signed the three-time Defensive Player of the Year from the mid-2000’s is slim, but it is what it is. He’s here and Al Horford is gone. With one year remaining on Paul Millsap’s contract with a player option for the 2017-18 season, Howard is now -like it or not- the face of the Atlanta Hawks franchise. Not since Howard left Orlando four seasons ago has he…

    Against the Norm Whether we realize it or not, our environment has great influence on the way we act every single day. Society tells us who to be, when we should be, how we should be, and if we defy society, we are wrong. Today’s society is not much different from society in the 50’s. Both the 50’s and modern societies create imaginary guidelines for people to live by. Allen Ginsberg steps out of mainstream society by creating the poem “Howl.” He speaks what others are afraid to speak. In the…
