Sports fans have been understandably enthralled by everything the NFL and NCAA Football seasons has offered them thus far, and they still have plenty of football to look forward to in the coming weeks. With that being said though, the fun is just getting started for basketball fans as the NBA season began just over a month ago and is already showing signs that said fans may be surprised about how things look once playoffs roll around. Arguably one of the most exciting things about the beginning of any NBA season though is the opportunity to see the myriad oof talented young men who take the court as rookies every year and admire their tenacity in working to leave their mark upon basketball history, honing the skills they have spent their entire lives harnessing. Some of these young men are so talented however that fans simply can’t wait that long to see them take the court, and if you’re one of those fans you’re in luck as the 2022 NCAA Basketball season officially commenced this week with a packed schedule that should keep you busy all week.
Brandon 'Scoop B' Robinson, a veteran journalist, created Scoop B Radio in 2016 as a way to publicize interesting content on sports, lifestyle, and entertainment. His jarring interviews are popular among listeners and have included notable names like Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban, Pete Sampras, DJ Khaled, The Voice of Siri Susan Bennett, Shaquille O’Neal, and Dom Lemon.
 
Earlier this week, Brandon "Scoop B" Robinson sat down with Reverend Jesse Jackson to discuss voting, civil rights, and of course, basketball with the NBA Insider. Robinson opens up the conversation by wishing Jackson a belated birthday and praising him for the work he does for the community nationwide.
November is right around the corner and the NFL season is at the midway point, having given fans plenty to be excited about thus far. Some teams have exceeded expectations while others have fallen short, but there is plenty of football left that could certainly shake things up. Until the Super Bowl rolls around next February teams will have to continue to fight it out, and fight it out they will as the teams currently at the top of the league have already been extremely competitive in their personal pursuits of success this season. Some of those teams have already garnered more success through Week 7 than they did the entirety of last season, while other teams are seemingly struggling considerably relative to their success last year. Let's take a look at how those teams have seen so much success thus far and how things are beginning to shape up as we get ready to enter the second half of the NFL season.
We’re approaching the end of October, and to the pleasure of fans that means the MLB playoffs are well underway. That certainly doesn’t mean they are even close to over yet however as the World Series is still days away and is shaping up to be one of the most interesting in recent years. But every round of the MLB playoffs have been incredibly exciting and full of their own unique surprises this year that have led us to this point, and are certainly worth revisiting. So let’s take a look back at the first two rounds of the playoffs and how the two teams who have earned the opportunity to contend for this year’s World Series, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Houston Astros, got there.
As it has progressed tremendously over the past several decades, the world of sports has become an incredibly diverse entity. Professional athletes come in virtually every shape and size while both genders are equally well represented in both men’s and women’s league, serving as the greatest markers of the type of inclusion and acceptance promoted in professional sports for decades now. This trend also only continues to grow as we move further and further into the 21st century and this type of diversity becomes increasingly more common in all industries and not just that of professional sports. One high profile sports executive has found himself in hot water this week after certain comments and actions of his denouncing this diversity in the most disgusting of ways came to light following an investigation by the NBA, and Phoenix Suns majority owner Dennis Sarver has been suspended from team and league activities for the forthcoming year as a result.
A few weeks ago we took a look at the upcoming NCAA football season and discussed the AP preseason poll and how the biggest programs in the country stacked up against each other leading into the 2022 season. High profile programs such as Alabama and Georgia were expectedly atop the preliminary rankings while other programs such as Texas A&M were ranked higher than expected and looked to make their presence felt early on. Now as we enter week three of the NCAA football season, we are slowly beginning to see how this season is likely to shake out and who we can expect to fight for the national championship once playoffs roll around. Lets take a look at the biggest winners and losers of the NCAA football season thus far and who is likely to take home the gold in a few short months.
Over the course of the existence of professional sports, fans have seen athletes commit remarkable feats that have seen them defy tremendous odds in the most remarkable of ways. Take for example Tiger Woods winning the 1997 Masters at just 21 years old, or Naomi Osaka winning her first US Open title in 2018 at the same age as Tiger and becoming the 4th ranked professional tennis player in the world. As sports science continues to evolve and professional athletes adapt to these advances, these feats only seem to become increasingly more common and provide fans with even more opportunities to see young and budding professional athletes leave their mark upon their respective sports. Just in this past week they were treated to exactly that, witnessing Carlos Alcaraz shock the world and become the youngest to ever win the US Open when he took home the title this past weekend.
