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 […]

Whats Doin: J.R. is not the only headcase in the family

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * This is too good. J.R. Smith’s sister brawls during a game in China. * Check out these off-air doozies from the TNT crew – Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller and Kevin Harlan. My favourite; Charles calls his new gig as Weight Watchers spokesman “the […]

5 Win-Win Trades

JT is the newest writer to hit the pine for NBAMate. A Brett Maher-like streak shooter in his heyday, JT now finds time to break down the fundamentals of the round-ball game in between changing diapers and other fatherly duties. Typically an NBA trade produces a winner and a loser, but here are five trade […]

Game 4 – A Big ol’ Baby is born

Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images It was a game the Celtics absolutely had to win, and their defensive effort in the first quarter showed they understood this all too well.

Where did those Hawks go?

Day 24 – The Day the Cavs Swept… Again 3 votes – Dirk Nowitzki. This was an absolutely epic game, one of the best so far these playoffs. Dirk scores 19 in the fourth on his way to 44 points (his fifth career 40-point game in the playoffs), Melo scores 41 and a last second […]

Day 15 – Exhale

AP Photo/Michael Dwyer The great series had to end. Some predicted a Celtics blow-out, some suggested a Bulls upset victory, while many presumed it would reach at least one overtime period before ending again in epic fashion. The answer was neither of those, or perhaps somewhere in between. The game didn’t reach the nail-biting heights […]

HTFU Glen Davis

Anyone who saw yesterday’s Celtics vs Blazers game knows it. Glen Davis deserves the biggest “Harden the Fuck Up” of the season so far. During a Celtics timeout that was called because the Blazers were roaring back, Kevin Garnett pulled his troops together – literally – and seemed to have a few choice words for […]
