Congrats to LA

Congrats to LA

Congrats to Kobe, Pau and company. Bryant's performance and hunger reminded me of Lisa Leslie's first WNBA championship with the LA Sparks. We'll be taking the trophy back next season.

Superchoke

Superchoke

Courtney Lee is off the hook. Dwight Howard is the new goat of this series. Yes, I know he sucks at free throws. But if Howard makes one of the two freebies with 11 seconds left and Orlando up 3, the Magic win this game. There's no second-guessing Stan Van Gundy for not-fouling the Lakers. [...]

Sometimes players just miss… even Kobe

Sometimes players just miss… even Kobe

I know this might come off as a defense of Kobe Bryant… and I guess it sort of is in a way.  But one thing that I can't stand even more than Kobe is the knee-jerk reaction to something like the game he had last night. Take, for example, Bill Plaschke… who writes this today: [...]
