Why the Packers defense will finally be better

By Andrew Hanlon

The Packers' defense hasn't carried its own weight in years. Probably since Green Bay won Super Bowl XLV, which is no coincidence.

In 2011, the Packers' defense dropped from fifth in the league in total defense to dead last.

In 2012, they were 22nd. They jumped to eighth in 2013, but fell back to 18th last season.

Meanwhile, the Packers' offense ranked first (2011), fifth (2012) , eighth (2013) and first (2014) in points scored during those seasons.

Again - the Packers' defense hasn't carried its own weight in years.

This year, though, will finally be different because of one word - Versatility.

Why LeBron James really is The King

By Andrew Hanlon

Seven conference finals appearances in 12 seasons.

Six NBA finals appearances and two championships.

Playoff averages - 27.9 points, 8.6 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.7 steals on 47 percent shooting.

Also, the first player to reach five straight NBA Finals since Bill Russell's Celtics in the 60s.

Oh yeah, and there's this.

There's a reason why people call LeBron James The King.

The Bucks' No. 1 need this offseason - and it's not shooting

By Andrew Hanlon

The Milwaukee Bucks had an amazing season last year. They went from 15 wins and the worst record in the league to 41 wins and the sixth seed in the playoffs.
They fought back from down 3-0 in the first round against the Chicago Bulls to at least force a game six with two incredibly entertaining victories, including a buzzer-beater.

Unfortunately, what they did last year was easier than what comes next. It's one thing to go from a terrible team to a mediocre team. It's another thing completely, however, to go from a good team to a great one.
