    The offseason focus in the NBA has primarily been centered on LeBron James' decision to go to the Los Angeles Lakers and DeMarcus Cousins deciding to join up with the Champion Golden State Warriors and rightfully so. Simulations in NBA 2K18 have shown that Cousins could help make the 2018-19 Warriors the greatest team of all-time, while LeBron will have his work cut out for him dragging the Lakers to a playoff spot in the tough Western Conference. Today a third major transaction went down...

    Had the NCAA Football series not been cancelled NCAA Football 19 would have released today. It's a sad reminder that the saga which began in 2009 with lawsuits from Ed O'Bannon and Sam Keller still hasn't reached its ultimate resolution. NCAA Football was the big casualty along the way when it was shut down shortly after the release of NCAA Football 14 in 2013. NCAA Football was cancelled not just due to a loss of NCAA branding and the ongoing legal action but the cold feet of parties suc...
