NBA 2018 Awards Finalist Announced

Published

on

The NBA has announced the finalist for the 2018 Awards.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden has never won the NBA MVP award. He finished second to Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook. Could this year finally be the year he wins the MVP race?

He leads the league in scoring (31.5 points per game) and ranks third in assists (9.1 apg). He has led the Rockets to NBA second-best record, falling short to Golden State Warriors. This year he became the first ever player to have a 60 point triple-double game. The previous NBA high for a triple-double was 57 points by both Michael Jordan in December 1992 and Russell Westbrook in March.

“James Harden right now is the clear-cut MVP,” Shaquille O’Neal said.

The Beards teammate Chris Paul had his own take on the MVP race. Paul declared, “it’s not even going to be close.”

Ben Affleck And Oscar Isaac Try To Pull Off The Biggest Heist In History In ‘Triple Frontier’ Trailer

Published

on

Netflix has unveiled a trailer and release date for Triple Frontier, a new cartel thriller with an impressive cast. Starring Oscar Isaac, Ben Affleck, Son’s of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam and Pedro Pascal, the film follows a team of ex-US Special Forces soldiers working for themselves instead of their country. They aim to steal millions of dollars from a dangerous South American drug cartel, but of course, things go wrong and it turns into a fight for survival.

The idea isn’t exactly original, as theaters and TV are stuffed with cartel-type projects like Sicario and Netflix’s own Narcos: Mexico. “Make no mistake about it. You guys need to own the fact that we do not have the flag on our shoulders,” says Affleck in a key scene that lays out the stakes. “You cannot go back to your normal life after tonight.”

Triple Frontier will be available in March.
