Q&A Roundtable: Linsanity, Dwight, All-Stars and more

Believe it or not, we are almost halfway through the 2011-12 season. So it’s the perfect time to take stock and tackle some of the big questions on everyone’s mind. How much longer can Linsanity last? How will Dwight’s possible trade shape the season? Who got snubbed in the All-Star game? What will happen to […]

The List: Not-so-Whacky Adjustments to All-Star Weekend

There’s no question most of us at some point get bored with the same old All-Star Weekend showcase year in, year out. We all understand that the NBA has to promote its product and its players in the best way possible and that means lots of dunks, 3-pointers, rookies, celebrities who think they got game, […]

Bogut’s All-Star Snub

Seems like deja vu, really. After being snubbed last year amidst his unquestioned career-best season, Andrew Bogut has again been left out in the cold by coaches selecting the All-Star reserves.  Sure it’s been an up-and-down season for the big Aussie thus far, but as the league-leader in blocks and a top-5 rebounder, many (including me) […]

The Greatest Dunker in NBA All-Star History

You’re looking at him now.  Mr 3-time Dunk Champ himself, Nate Robinson. If this doesn’t kill off the dunk comp completely nothing will.

Bogut Nearly an All-Star

Just came across a great article from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Online, quoting Orlando Coach Stan Van Gundy who thinks Bogut should have been an All-Star. He’s probably more of a true center than a lot of the other guys that people have talked about at that position.  Most of them are power forwards playing up a […]

Bogut for All-Star? Why Not?

Thanks to NBAMate reader Zac for posting this one.  Seems like the “Bogut for All-Star” campaign is not dead yet, according to  Steve Aschburner at Also, my respect for Jerry Stackhouse has grown significantly. Check these quotes: “Bogut, why isn’t he on the All Star team? A guy averaging numbers like that, a double-double, […]

Sunday Six Pack – Bynum’s knee, Bogut’s return and Shaq’s love for Kobe

ONE: Andrew Bynum, who has been playing out of his mind recently, has gone down with a knee injury, against the Memphis Grizzlies, and had to be carried off the court. Deja vu anyone? Of course, the exact same thing happened last year, and we all know what ensued. The Lakers still ended up #1 […]

Bogut Watch and our All-Star Ballot

It’s been a while since I checked in on the big Aussie. The last time I spoke of the Bucks they won five of their last six games and looked to be cementing a spot in the East’s upper half. Since then they have struggled to put two straight wins together – they’ve actually gone […]

All Star Bloggin

  The All-Star weekend has come and gone in a flash, and I’m sitting here struggling to recall why I was so excited about it in the first place. Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy it, well at least parts of it. But I can’t help but feel the whole thing is a bit […]

Days like this

I love days like this in the NBA. We got 14 games of action which meant I spent approximately 4 hours 25 minutes in the office Alt-Tabbing between “work” and ESPN’s NBA scoreboard. Not only did we get a heap of games but we also managed to score a wicked game on ESPN – the […]
