Is this a different Cavs team?

It’s now 22 games or so into the season, which is more than a quarter of the way through. What does that mean? It means it’s time to dig around the leagues for some trends that might not hold true in the long run, but are sure entertaining to ponder with a decent sample size … Continue reading

Will a woman be in the NBA soon?

Kobe banks it in……disgusting

Oh, Kobe, you were so freaking close. In the wake of his ridiculous, logic-defying, physics-confounding, completely and utterly unfair running bank 3-pointer to beat poor Dwayne Wade and the heart-broken Miami Heat, No. 24 decided to come clean. “It was the luckiest shot I’ve ever taken, by far,” he told the Associated Press. Thank God. … Continue reading

Iverson coming home to Philly

AI to Philly. Give it a second. Mull your mind over it a few times, and let it sink in a little. AI to Philly….. Just sounds right, doesn’t it? Allen Iverson was never a Nugget. Never a Piston. Lord knows he was never a Grizzly, which he probably realized about five minutes into his … Continue reading

NBA Power Rankings Week 6

#1) L.A. Lakers (14-3): Haven’t had the toughest schedule yet with so many home games, but getting it done. Upcoming road trip will be a test. Artest seems to be fitting in OK, but is this team that much better, and can Kobe make them want it as much as him again? #2) Boston (14-4): … Continue reading

NASH IN HIS OWN WORLD

In case you had forgotten, this is why you’ll be telling your kids about Steve Nash 15 years from now. By then the NBA will undoubtedly be taken over by the LeBron effect, and the debates will be raging as to where he, Kobe and MJ stand among the greatest all-time. And as far as … Continue reading
