Clueless: The Rudy Gay trade

It’s been more than 24 hours since we knew Rudy Gay was going to be a Toronto Raptor, and for the life of me I still can’t figure out the logic behind the deal for any party. Well, maybe that’s a bit harsh. Detroit have done pretty well in getting Jose Calderon for Austin Daye […]

10 Things We Learned In December

It’s that time of the month folks, when I chime in with 10 observations from the previous month’s NBA action. Let’s get straight into it. 1. Chris Bosh Needs To Get His Hands Dirty For the Miami Heat to reach their enormous potential (complete domination) Chris Bosh will have to undergo the same transformation as […]

Sunday Six Pack: Back for 2010-11

Hear that? That was the sound of me cracking open the first Sunday Six Pack of the season – a weekly look around the league through our slightly green and gold tinted glasses. Hope your Sunday is a good one, wherever you are. ONE: Kicking off with the usual Aussie Roundup, we should probably pause […]

Sunday Six Pack: Playoff Seeds, TV and the Enigmatic C’s

ONE: When I saw the email that landed in my inbox last night I almost froze: “Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut out with middle back pain”. Surely, after appearing injury free for most of the season and playing at an All-Star level, the Big Aussie hadn’t been struck down when it mattered most? Upon further […]

Sunday Six Pack: Guns, Rays and Sweedes

ONE: Quick Aussie Roundup first. After leaving yesterday’s game against the Knicks after just 5 minutes with a migraine, the Bogey Man bounced back today with a very solid 21 point, 8 rebound effort against the Pacers. More importantly, the Bucks have won 5 out of their last 6 and seem to be gelling at […]

Sunday Six Pack: Gallo, Reke and the “T” word

Photoshop skills courtesy Two Sides of the Hoop ONE: A quick Sunday Six Pack to sneak in before Part II of Ant’s musings on the NBA’s prior decade touches down. So this prior week will no doubt be remembered as the week of Patty Mills’ NBA debut. It was a rocky journey – late draft […]

These men are nihilists, there’s nothing to be afraid of

Ant is the newest writer here at NBAMate. When he’s not over-loading the server with his long, rambling, over-hyphenated posts, he’s fighting for the revival of the fedora as a mainstream fashion item or bluffing his way through a cricket conversation with work mates. He is the thinking man’s NBA blogger, so lock-in and enjoy. […]

Sunday Six Pack: The Epic 2010 New Years Edition

ONE: It’s been a while between Six Packs, and with the time off I’ve had over the New Year I thought it was only fitting to churn out what will undoubtedly be the most massive Sunday Six Pack of all time. On the Aussie front, the biggest news this week has of course been the […]

Things I learnt from Day 1 and 2

(AP Photo/Michael Dwyer) Don’t bash the Cavs just yet. Having watched the first half of yesterday’s Celtics vs Cavs game, and the last quarter of today’s Raptors vs Cavs game (thank you ILP), I find myself for once agreeing with the Big Diesel (or “The Big Witness Protection” as he’s now apparently known in Cleveland). […]

New Season’s Eve: Ten Intriguing Storylines for 2009-10

The new season has finally arrived, and just like every year, I can’t believe I went four and a half months without it. The 2009-2010 campaign is shaping up to be a beauty, for so many reasons. Will we see the King finally crowned with his new Diesel-powered sidekick? Will Dwight get redemption along with […]
