Look Who Showed Up

Every now and then you get that wow-this-guy-could-be-really-good performance from Lamar Odom and last night was the night. Give the Lakers credit – they played defense (12 blocked shots, Denver shot 38%) and Kobe (8 assists) passed the ball to guys who made plays (Odom 19 pts, Ariza 12 pts, Fisher 12 pts). Denver may...

He has a bigger upside than 1st round pick J.R. Giddens. Walker didn't see much court time until KG went down in February. When he did take... [More]

Perk, Rondo pass on Team USA

A few days ago, Chuck expressed a little concern over Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins and Glen Davis participating with Team USA.  So he, and we, will be happy to hear that our starting PG and center probably won't be expending any energy in 2010 and 2012… because they're going to skip this summer's mini-camp.    Several...

Nike’s gonna need new puppets

Nike’s gonna need new puppets

A funny thing happened on the way to Kobe vs. LeBron in the finals. The Orlando Magic figured out how to play good basketball.  Actually, they figured it out during the Celtics series when they stopped just bombing from 3 and got aggressive.  Now, Orlando is one win away from eliminating the Cavs, and giving...

Gasol Calls Kobe a Ball Hog….Kinda

"It's frustrating because we lose games," Gasol said, according to the report. "I don't mind when we win, because the bottom line... [More]

How the Celtics can beat the Lakers again

I Love Dahntay Jones!!

I never condone dirty play….unless it's directed at Kobe Bryant. Nuggets guard Dahntay Jones continues to take his cheap shots. Last night during the Nuggets Game 4 victory, he blatantly tripped Bryant as Kobe cut into the lane. Kobe went sliding into the lane and, here come the best part, there was no call! This... [More]

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

I told ya'll the other day that we find it really disrespectful that everybody seems to be pulling for LeBron and Kobe to get to the Finals. Every time I look at TV, it seems like that's all anybody is talking about. It's like nobody is even giving us a shot at winning this series... [More]
