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).

Quotes of the Month – April 2012

“I don’t do treatment. I hate training rooms.” – Portland’s Raymond Felton, when asked what kind of treatment he’d been receiving on his Achilles injury.

By now everyone knows that the first two weeks of the NBA season have been written off, and we’re almost certainly going to lose more. Not that I’m personally surprised. I’ve been telling everyone who’ll listen that we’ll be incredibly lucky to get a season at all. The reasons why we’re in this position are […]

Lockout Blues: Of Teams And Man

The NBA has too many teams. There. I’ve set out the basic premise of this article in the very first line. Last time, I discussed the problem of market size in the NBA. Part of the reason this is a problem is that the NBA simply over-expanded over the years, which has also served to […]

MELOpoly

Who doesn’t love a good game of monopoly? Well, like all games of monopoly, it ain’t worth it unless it goes for far too long. I thought I would break down this real life game of Monopoly that is unfolding before us with the Carmelo Anthony trade speculation. Most important part of a game of […]
