Thoughts on the Knicks, Heat and Lakers

Yes it’s me. I’m still posting, albeit it not as much as I used to. I told JT you can count me in for maybe one post per month, and of course the Playoff Diary. But this season is so damn intriguing I don’t know if I can wait a month between posts. So much […]

Superstar Theory (and a Heat-Lakers breakdown)

It’s no secret that superstars matter in the NBA. If your team has a superstar-caliber player, odds are they have a much better shot at winning a title than a team that doesn’t. However, as the league’s SuperTeam era continues into this season and has a new member in the LA Lakers, now with Steve […]

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. Sure, he was disappointing, but let’s be realistic here; he’s a third year player in this league and only 22 years old. I’ll repeat that, he’s 22 years old. And he […]

You couldn’t assemble three Franchise players, including […]

NBA Finals Game 3 – Who wants it more?

With someone as physically imposing and talented as LeBron James, backed up by two perennial All-Stars in Bosh and Wade, it would make sense that Miami be the unanimous favourite to take out the title in 2012… but that hasn’t been the case. For whatever reason, Miami have had their backs against the wall on […]

Day 23 – A LeBron classic

I just want to get this off my chest. Over the last few days we’ve been hearing ad nauseum how Chris Bosh is really the ‘straw that stirs the Miami drink’, so to speak. Well, to me, that’s just garbage, as evidenced by today’s result. I’m sorry for the bluntness, but I’ve seen too many […]
