Team USA finalizes roster

Not a bad group.

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 […]

“Just to be clear with everyone that are asking where I’m playing next year, I have a lot of work to do before I think about a team!” – Jermaine O’Neal on Twitter. No one gives a shit, Jermaine. ”At that time, that could have hurt me being loyal. But a lot of times, I […]

Day 22 – Kid Clutch at it again

I’d like to say that I didn’t underestimate the combined talent of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook – but […]

Day 21 – Enter the Black Mamba

Despite the could have beens and should have beens that have drawn some media attention so far in the playoffs, it’s hard to take anything away from the eight teams who’ve managed to advance to the second round and are now competing for spots in the conference finals. When the Sixers and Pacers each advanced […]

Day 8 – Fear the beard

While I wasn’t willing to wake up at 4:00am to watch the Pacers and Magic battle it out live in Orlando, I did manage to get myself out of bed at 6:30 – just in time to see my ex-lover, CP3, strut his stuff in front of a jacked up crowd in the Staples Center. […]
