Sports: Golden State Warriors

By: Elaan

The starting 5 for the warriors is the best since the franchise started, consisting of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and Zaza Pachulia. Consisting of 5 all stars, this is a strong offense!

Sure this is a good team, but does it have good balance or chemistry? You need to mix things up a bit is what I am saying.

On top of that, all of these stars are going to be requesting big money. Which can eat up all of their cap space. Which leaves them struggling to find stars in the draft. They also average over 100 points a game. Going into the

They also average over 100 points a game. Going into the playoffs as the 1 seed. They are playing the trail blazers as the 8 seed. Losing Kevin Durant

was big on the bright side he will be back by the 2nd round of the playoffs. Having the best record in the NBA for the past 2 years is big, only the Spurs can match up well in the west. If they beat the Spurs again it looks like the 3rd time the warriors will have gone to the championship in 5 years.

RAW: Goldberg has returned! His feud with Brock Lesnar has never been bigger since 2004 when they had their Wrestlemania match.He really wanted to face Goldberg to a one on one at the Pay Per-View Survivor Series on November 20th. Goldberg has jackhammered Rusev and sent Paul Heyman (Brock Lesnar’s manager) to the hospital with a spear. On the other hand RAW has accepted team Smackdown’s challenge at survivor series. The Tag team champions faced the team of Cesaro and Sheamus but Cesaro and Sheamus won via. Disqualification and the champions stay champions. At the cage match history was being made because for the first time ever Women are in a cell wrestling. Seth Rollins back has been injured but not enough to be out of WWE for a while. The team for the Survivor series men is ( Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Braun Stroman, Chris Jericho, and Kevin Owens). There women’s team ( Sasha Banks, Charlotte,Alicia Fox, Bayley, and Nia Jax). Finally there tag team ( New Day, The Club, Cesaro and Sheamus, Shining Stars, and Enzo and Big Cass). At Survivor Series Raw won 2 of 3 survivor series matches.

General Manager: Daniel Bryan

Commissioner: Shane McMahon

       Smackdown: James Ellsworth has beaten Aj styles 3 times! When he wasn’t even in the roster. But now he beat A.J Styles the 3rd time and is in the roster now. On another note A.J. Styles beat John Cena and Dean Ambrose at Backlash.

       Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan also challenged Raw to a 5 on 5 elimination tag team match. Men’s Women’s and tag team. So far that is all we know. We don’t know what superstars and tag team partners are in it.

        Daniel Bryan announced on Miz T.V on Smackdown the team for Survivor Series. The only pay per view where Smackdown Live can face Raw. He said “Randy Orton, Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt. Dean Ambrose, and the W.W.E champion A.J Styles. But unfortunately, Baron Corbin just got injured. So Daniel Bryan the general manager just announced the replacement for Baron… The commissioner of Smackdown Shane McMahon!

        On November 1st Smackdown Randy Orton has gone to Wyatt family. Including (Luke Harper, Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan, and now newly Randy Orton.) A lot of fans are shocked including me. Now that Randy has joined people are saying Wyatt family might be impossible to beat. But who knows Randy Orton might be playing mind games. Nobody knows what voices Randy Orton has in his head.

       Recently Smackdown has announced the tag team and women’s team. The tag team teams are Heath Slater and Rhyno the Smackdown tag team champions, Hype Bros, Breezango, The Usos, and American Alpha. The women’s stars Nikki Bella the captain, Naomi, Carmella, Alexa Bliss, and the Smackdowns women’s champion Becky Lynch. At Survivor Series they won 1 of 3. The men’s match.

       James Ellsworth in T.L.C surprisingly helped A.J Styles. After everything Dean and James went through. James helped A.J retain the W.W.E World Heavyweight. After that on Smackdown James thought he was still friends with Dean, but Dean showed on Smackdown that he wasn’t. This is all the news from No Mercy 2016 to T.LC. 2016.

Sports: Cubs Win World Series

By: Sports Team

In the regular season, the cubs went 103 -58 causing them to have the best record in baseball.  After the Giants played their wild card game against the Mets (Gillespie scored the winning run) they faced the Cubs and lost the series 3-1.  Just like that, the Cubs were in the NL pennant.

A lot of fans thought that after all those years (71) the cubs could make it too the World Series. They started off too a great start winning their first game at home with Javier Baez stealing home off a great play. Then they lost 2 in a row and then they made the series in the favor of the Dodgers and a lot of people thought that the Cubs were going to mess everything up because how they were playing.  However, they crushed them in game four and won game five.  They made history after 71 years; they finally made it to the World Series!  They didn’t forget that there is still a record to break. They had to win it all!

In the opening game, they were looking to get the lead, but leading pitching, Kluber, shut them out for a surprise 6-0 loss for the Cubs. Most people wondered, will it be another upset? They won game 2 to tie the series. Then the Indians barely beat the Cubs one to zero. The Cubs need 3 wins to make it possible for a World Series championship. The Cubs won the next game 2-3 and the next cruising 9-2. They have to win this one and they do! It’s 5-1 Chicago and people think they are going to win and they pull Hendricks early and Lester does terrible on 1 play and gives up 2 runs! In the end, the Cubs pulled it off and broke the curse.  The Cubs are World Series Champions!
