Playoff Diary – Week 1 – 22nd April 2013

Here’s the deal – we’ll chime in with some observations/opinions every couple of days throughout the playoffs. We’re moving away from the daily playoff votes due to time constraints, but hopefully the new format will give us the flexibility to write some more insightful pieces, during this the business end of the NBA season. Forgive […]

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * What I wouldn’t give to see Dirk Nowitzki cultivate a Harden-esque beard. * Grantland with a terrific feature on Andrew Bogut – ‘How an Emerging Andrew Bogut Could Be the Playoff Difference for the Warriors’.

Whats Doin: Amar’e to buy a post game?

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * Amar’e Stoudemire will pay Hakeem Olajuwan 100k for two weeks of ‘post play’ tutelage during the summer. That’s a hefty sum but considering that LeBron James emerged from a similar session last year with a post game in tow, it’s clearly worth it. […]

The things I learned in June

Some random observations from the previous month’s action: * I’m surprised that so many people are dumping on James Harden for his Finals performance.

Whats Doin: A day at the ballpark with Thunder Dan

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * Do you remember ‘Thunder’ Dan Majerle? Well, here he is at a baseball game randomly catching a ‘ground rule double’.
