An elite NBA team as a supreme pizza

I love cooking. I’ve worked as a kitchen hand and chef for most of the past six years, so it’s safe to say I have a fair idea of what makes a solid recipe (well…for pizza at least, but I got some skillz in other areas also). I also love basketball and the NBA and […]

5 rookies to watch this NBA season

Anthony Bennett (Cleveland, Forward, 1st pick) It almost seems redundant to suggest that the No.1 pick in the draft should be on everyone’s radar. However, Bennett is particularly interesting for a number of reasons. Unlike most teams picking No.1, the Cavs are clearly looking to make a run at the playoffs this year (in addition […]

Game Review: Butler Bulldogs vs. Norths Invitational Bears, North Sydney Indoor Sports Centre

Final Score: Butler Win 73-60. August 6 is a notable day in history for a few reasons, particularly the fact that it was on this day in 1945 the USA dropped the first and only atomic bombs to be used in war on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. However, in terms of […]

The mother of all trades

I’ll discuss the draft at some point over the weekend, but there’s one thing I have to talk about first. That is of course the massive Nets-Celtics trade which sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to Brooklyn for Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph, Keith Bogans and three No.1 picks. All […]

Can the Knicks beat Miami?

They’ve won 13 straight games, Carmelo is playing like a two-way superstar and Ray Felton is back to his best ball. The Manhattan Knicks are firing on all cylinders at the right time of the season and it would seem that the playoffs await. Which means the question of any Eastern Conference team who hits […]

The Durant-Westbrook question in Oklahoma City

Until recently, Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder have mostly gotten a free pass from the basketball media. Frankly, unless you (or, in my case, my dad) are from Seattle it’s hard to dislike them. A group of young, talented, likeable guys who were put together by a savant GM and could possibly dominate […]

Is Matthew Dellavadova an NBA talent?

Recently, Aussie St Mary’s star Matthew Dellavadova has been getting quite a bit of attention on the college basketball scene. His stats for the year have been pretty impressive (15.4ppg and 6.6apg) and he’s also the focal point of the Gaels offense as they look set to make the NCAA tournament. In addition, following a […]

Clueless: The Rudy Gay trade

It’s been more than 24 hours since we knew Rudy Gay was going to be a Toronto Raptor, and for the life of me I still can’t figure out the logic behind the deal for any party. Well, maybe that’s a bit harsh. Detroit have done pretty well in getting Jose Calderon for Austin Daye […]

Set the Celtics on fire

The recent news that Rajon Rondo has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season is not as big a deal as it may seem in the greater playoff picture this year. With Rondo, the Celtics were a borderline playoff team at best. Without him, they’re almost certain to miss the playoffs […]

Night of the long pitchforks and torches in Sacramento

I decided up till this point to stay out of the recent news that the Kings had been sold to a Seattle investor group and would be becoming the new Sonics from most likely next season. I have a dog in both hunts – friends who go for the Kings and a dad who bleeds […]
