Whats Doin: Austin Daye is the Pistons’ whipping boy

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * Check out these photos of a bloated Marc Gasol in high school. Apparently his nickname was “the Big Burrito”. I’ll say. * Austin Daye gets hogtied in the shower of the Piston’s locker room. There’s a half smile there but you can see […]

Quotes of the Month – February 2012

“You think I’ll hang around and average 19 points or 18 points? Hell no.” – The Lakers’ Kobe Bryant on how much longer he intends to play.

The Things I Learned In January

But it’s his allegiance to the West Tigers that makes him unmistakeably Aussie. The point guard lives. Not that it ever really died. However, for a […]

Day 12 – Fear the Deer

Day 10 – Where the Suns finally get some love

3 votes – Carlos Delfino. There were no huge performances today. No one across the three games scored more than 30 or won the game in the dying seconds. There was however, a shock upset, and that was the Bucks leveling the series with Atlanta at 2-2. And if like me, you’re trying to figure […]

Welcome to the 2010 NBA Playoffs

What better way to kick of this year’s playoff campaign than a brawl and a few flying elbows eh? The playoffs are back and so is Mr. Kevin Douchebag Garnett. As you can see from this video, Garnett’s actions were completely unprovoked, or at least provoked only by a few soft words from Q-Rich. Either […]
