For many people, the NBA season doesn’t even begin until the Christmas day marathon of games, but not here at Milliron Sports. We’re a quarter of the way through, and it’s time for me to present the highlights from the beginning of the year. Alright, I don’t want to waste anyone’s time here, so lets dive right into it:
Most Graphic Injury : Gordon Hayward
There wasn’t even a ton of competition for this one. It was opening night in Cleveland, and the Celtics were looking to make a statement against the Eastern Conference Champs. Too bad that statement was “HOLY SHIT, HIS LEG’S SHATTERED!”
WARNING: this shit is nasty.
It’s pretty surprising to me that Hayward hasn’t been missed that much, seeing as Boston went on that ridiculous winning streak.
Honorable mention: I know this wasn’t from the NBA, but prayers up to Grayson Allen after this nasty injury. Shoutout to @millironmac for providing the footage.
Wow. Thoughts and prayers to Grayson Allen. I really hope he can recover from this. I’m no Duke fan but you hate to see an ugly injury like this no matter who it is. Some things are bigger than basketball. pic.twitter.com/I7jMAJVMlr
Louisville knew they had their work cut out for them after Columbus’ strong showing last week as Ohio State took on The University of Oklahoma (aka UO). Did they answer the call?

Welcome to the first ever episode of the Nati Boys podcast presented by Milliron Sports. Get to know DB, Jefe, Mac and Whitty a little more in our inaugural podcast. On today's show we discuss our favorite Cincinnati things, talk about sports/activities that we think we could be much better at than we actually are, and debate whether it would be better to face a wild, 100+ MPH fastball or take a choke slam from a professional wrestler.
If you’re anything like me, you’re either anticipating a bald spot, or already covering one up with a sweet New Era cap featuring your favorite team. Since 2011, MLB has been coming out with special Stars and Stripes editions of hats for all teams to wear on the 4th of July. Here are my personal rankings of the hats. Shout me out on twitter with your favorite one: @MillironDB.
First to worst:
2011: pictured above is the best hat that they’ve come out with so far. It incorporates the flag, and has a great mix of all of the colors into the “C” logo. It helps that the Reds main color is featured prominently on the hats, because I always think the Stars and Stripes hats for teams with no red or blue in their team colors looks weird (the Orioles, for example). I really think they peaked early with this one; it was the first edition of the Stars and Stripes hats, and they knocked it out of the park, only to go downhill from there.
I still wear this hat; I wore it to the Reds/Brewers game this past Wednesday night. Love it.
