NBA Finals Game 3 – Who wants it more?

With someone as physically imposing and talented as LeBron James, backed up by two perennial All-Stars in Bosh and Wade, it would make sense that Miami be the unanimous favourite to take out the title in 2012… but that hasn’t been the case. For whatever reason, Miami have had their backs against the wall on […]

NBA Finals Game 2 – Don’t call it a comeback…

Miami came out with a point to prove in the early going of game two, getting off to a red hot start and leading 18-2 after seven minutes of action. As always the Thunder bounced back and this was a closer game than it probably should have been down the stretch. Nonetheless we move on […]

Day 41 – Like a Bosh

So the bracket has finally been resolved and we have our two finalists. It’s come as no real surprise that the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder will be the two teams battling it out for the hardware. It’s true, they play the games for a reason, but it was fairly obvious before the […]

Day 40 – Setting the stage for an all-time classic

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. LeBron James is the best damn player in the NBA. The way he commands attention on offense without skipping a beat defensively, is a testament to the hard work that’s gone in to developing this under appreciated and incredibly well balanced superstar. Game 6 was all […]

Day 35 – All knotted up

This Spurs v Thunder series is a couple of 50 point games and some overtime periods from being an all-time classic. The back and forth between these two western conference heavyweights is a treat to watch, and it looks as if it’s going down to the wire. We’re now 2-2, with a best of 3 […]

Day 33 – Streakbusters

It took them three attempts at it, but as we all expected – the Oklahoma City Thunder finally put an end to the phenomenal win streak by the San Antonio Spurs. In this game three matchup, Patty Mills also logged ten minutes, the circumstances were unfortunate. 3 votes – Kevin Durant. It wasn’t a night […]

Day 32 – Unibrow!

I’m not even going to lie. I barely watched a second of Rajon Rondo’s historic night (which was possibly one of the best point guard performances in playoff history). The reason – New Orleans won the lottery and I spent the next 48 hours (and counting) watching highlights, listening to interviews, reading articles, reading scouting […]

Day 28 – When it matters most

In what seems to be a recurring theme, Rondo has once again come up big for the Celtics when they needed it most – recording a near triple double in Boston’s Game 7 win over Philadelphia (18 points, 10 assists, 9 rebounds). 3 votes – Rajon Rondo. He bounced back after a tough night at […]

Day 27 – Indi gone fishin’

Although I couldn’t see any way Indiana would be able to overcome the talents of Miami, I was suitably impressed with their efforts in a less than favourable matchup. Miami clearly weren’t at full strength after Chris Bosh went down with the abdominal strain, but LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were spectacular throughout the series, […]

Day 26 – Philly force Game 7, All-NBA teams announced

On the 26th day Philly slugged out another home win, which will send the series back to Boston for Game 7. The league also announced the All-NBA teams, with Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and LeBron James scoring top honours in both the All-NBA first team, and All-NBA defensive first team. They were joined in the […]
