Case of the Mondays: I admit my fear of the Lakers

Case of the Mondays: I admit my fear of the Lakers

Mondays suck… even around here.  So we're taking time out on Monday's to make ourselves feel better and rant about something that pisses us off. Lakers-hatred is embedded in my soul. It was planted there in 1980 and will never escape. You don't  recover from Magic Johnson's baby sky-hook in the '87 finals. Don't mistake [...]

KG, Pierce on “All Decade Team”

KG, Pierce on “All Decade Team”

I always expect Pierce to be overlooked in lists like this.  But he wasn't. Ian Thomsen has put together a nice little list. His starting 5:  Nash, Kobe, LeBron, Duncan and Shaq.  Hard to argue with that for an All Decade team. KG is a reserve… Though Garnett was the 2004 league MVP with Minnesota, [...]

Better Over the Backboard Shot: Rondo or Kobe?

Kobe's lapdogs The media is drooling over the latest Kobe Bryant feat – a shot from behind the backboard last night against the Thunder. With much less fanfare, Rajon Rondo hit a similar shot a few weeks back against the 76ers. I ask you… Who made the tougher over-the-backboard shot?(surveys) [...]

Your Morning Dump… where maybe we overreacted a little

Your Morning Dump… where maybe we overreacted a little

LeBron to LA? It will never happen

LeBron to LA? It will never happen

Via Bulls.com blogger Sam Smith: The obvious reason this never gets discussed is no one can see James hooking on with Bryant. I really cannot understand why not. How good a team would that be with Bryant, James, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom? Supposedly it would look like James searching out a place to win [...]
