It Wasn’t Goaltending

It Wasn’t Goaltending

Not sure why the sports blogosphere is suddenly buzzing about the alleged goaltending at the end of Game 2. I've dug up the NBA rules on goaltending. Here are the sections that apply to last night's controversial ending to the Lakers/Magic game. Section I-A Player Shall Not: a. Touch the ball or the basket ring [...]

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe I'm romanticizing the past a little bit.  But to me, basketball was at its absolute peak in the 80's.  The play was great.  There were so many great players and good teams.  We had classic individual performances (71 points by David Robinson), classic All Star weekend performances (Bird's "who's finishing 2nd three-point contest win, [...]

THE shirt for Orlando Magic fans!

THE shirt for Orlando Magic fans!

    We made a little tweak to our normal "Losers" shirt to take a shot at Kobe.  You can get this shirt in our store right now… and still have it in time to wear for a home game against LA.  We have this design on other shirts as well (for men and women)… so [...]

Want to go to an All Star game? Root for global warming

I think going to an All Star game could be fun.  It would be a great weekend of cool events throughout the city… and the chance to see all of the NBA's stars in one place would be great.  Unfortunately, if you want to actually GO… you're probably going to have to travel. Boston ain't [...]

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Chuck and I were swilling beers last night and talking hoops and just marveling at Kobe Bryant's 3rd quarter in Game 1 of the Finals.  Simply put, no matter how much we hate that guy, he put on an amazing show.  The Lakers looked unbeatable.  But… they're not. First, the Lakers have a horrible habit [...]

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Holy crap did this ridiculous Ray Allen/Rajon Rondo trade rumor have legs.  I mean… we threw it up there as a "ha ha… you asked for rumors and this dumb one surfaced" type of thing.  But it just kept making the rounds.  People pulled quotes that appeared next to neanderthal cave paintings to use as [...]

Et tu, Larry?

Et tu, Larry?

You know, I'm having a hard enough time coping with Kobe Bryant's seemingly eventual championship (and the onslaught of Laker trolls that will hit this site)… the last thing I needed was to hear Larry Bird's current favorite player is a Laker.
