Did LABron break the NBA?

By Brandon Bush

 

Well, basketball fans, do you want the good news or the bad news first?

The good news is that the four-year monopoly on the NBA Finals by the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers may finally be over. The bad news, however, is that every single future NBA Finals will be won by the Western Conference by one of two teams: the Golden State Warriors or the new home of King James – the Los Angeles Lakers.

Unite and Conquer

By Brandon Bush

 

On May 31, 2011, the Atlanta Thrashers of the National Hockey League left the country and relocated to Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada. Atlanta was no longer the host city to the four major professional sports.

My favorite Falcons part 1

By Brandon Bush

 

With the drought in big local sports news lately, I thought I’d take another moment to share some thoughts with you all.

Specifically, I have often seen other sports writers in the state do something a bit fun: naming and discussing their favorite players at each position for a given football team. More often than not, writers around here tend to mostly focus on the Georgia Bulldogs.

The great debate

By Brandon Bush

 

Since the beginning of this year, I’ve been focusing my column space more on local sports rather than national stories as keeping our attention on our coverage area should be our first priority.

School’s out: A reflection part 3

By Brandon Bush

 

We’ve reached my final column talking about my favorite moments in sports from the 2017-18 school year.

I decided to use the entirety of this week’s column to talk about my all-time favorite moment from this year. This entry differs because it does not have to do with local sports as well as being a subject I’ve talked about at length before.

School’s out: A reflection Part 2

By Brandon Bush

 

This week, we continue going over some of my favorite sports moments from the 2017-18 school year. If you haven’t read last week’s column, be sure to check it out before reading on to find out which moments from this year I talked about in our last issue.

That being said, let’s not waste any time and jump into a new collection of memories from the past year.

School’s out: A reflection Part 1

By Brandon Bush

 

We’re nearing the end of May and that means two things: one, I’m listening to Alice Cooper, and two, most, if not all, of our area's schools are out for summer.

A bright future

By Brandon Bush

 

Welcome to my last column of the year on Putnam County soccer.

Honestly, I’m just glad I can finally write one without running the risk of it being outdated by the time the War Eagles play another game. As you’re probably aware, Putnam played against Benedictine Military School last Friday for the GHSA Class AA state championship.

Still alive

By Brandon Bush

 

I want to start my column for this week in the least traditional way possible: by not talking about sports at all.

For those unaware, I was in a pretty rough car wreck Friday afternoon at the intersection in front of Ingles in Eatonton. To save you the details and to save me the embarrassment of telling this story again, it all boils down to me letting my guard down and getting distracted at the wheel, causing me to run a red light and be hit by an oncoming car.
