Whats Doin: Knicks’ basketball, you gotta laugh

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * A night on the town in Shanghai with the Miami Heat. * Jeremy Evans with an insane block and dunk. Could that be the Play of the Year already? * I think we can kiss goodbye to Andrew Bogut being ready for the […]

Some classic photos for your enjoyment

As co-editor of NBAMate I spend an inordinate amount of time searching Google Images to try and find the perfect picture for the perfect post. In the process I occasionally stumble across some, shall we say, interesting photos. So I’ve collected them, naturally, and will now serve them up for your enjoyment. There’s some flat-out […]

The five most annoying players in the NBA?

Don’t confuse this for a knucklehead list; I’ve already done that. No, these are the guys that for whatever reason just get under your skin. They’re the itch that can’t be scratched. 5.

This is one of those times. Forget about asylum seekers, forget the new Twilight movie and forget the upcoming AFL […]

Chicken Rice and a Philippino named Rolly

I’ve been over here in Malaysia for the past couple of weeks, soaking in the culture, warm weather and chicken rice. Seriously, they eat a lot of chicken over here. Chicken curries, chicken sandwiches, chicken kebabs, and of course chicken rice. Overwhelmed with the chicken I went to a place called Kenny Roger’s Roasters named […]

Game 1 Fizzer

Game 1 of the NBA Finals was a fizzer. It was a fizzer because the three things I desperately wanted to see didn’t happen: 1) Lebron James throwing down a ridiculous dunk to go down in NBA Finals history (in fact, how about just one dunk LJ? That’d be nice.) 2) Duncan utterly dominating the […]
