Identity politics in the Staples Center

I haven’t been writing much this season. While I’d like to claim that’s because I haven’t had downtime from my glamourous life as a secret agent/astronaut/millionaire, the truth is that I’m just too povo to afford League Pass so I can hardly watch games. ESPN’s spotty coverage doesn’t help. With that said, in the past […]

Second round playoff predictions – West

San Antonio Spurs vs Los Angeles Clippers JT: The Spurs are a well-oiled machine so I can’t see a beaten down Clippers’ side getting in their way. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Caron Butler are all banged up, but even at full strength they’d still likely struggle against a well-rested Spurs’ team; their too deep, too well-coached and […]

Have Ya Heard – Del Negro On The Hot Seat

Earlier this month there was word circling around the league that Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni had lost control of his team, and before you knew it he was gone.

The 2011-12 Season Preview Round Table

It’s been a funny offseason. A long offseason. The craziest offseason I can remember, which is saying something after Lebron’s free agent drama last year.

Metallica And The 2010-11 NBA Season So Far

Last Saturday, I had one of the great experiences of my life seeing Metallica at the Acer Arena. While I have a pretty wide musical palate, Metallica have always been one of my true loves ever since a bogan classmate loaned me a mix CD of their greatest work when I was 12 and we […]

Mo’s, Blows, and the new Dolphin Saver

Ok I didn’t tell anyone but secretly I decided I wasn’t going to write another blog until Detroit won a game with Allen Iverson. To say I was disappointed with losing to the Nets (let alone Devin Harris going for a career high) and then being whooped by the Celtics is an understatement. I was […]

2008-2009 Season Preview: The Pretenders

It’s late October so you know what that means. Every basketball website /blog /magazine /podcast on the planet feels the need to look at every team and try to predict what’s going to happen in 08-09. Here at NBAMate we thought we’d do things a little differently. Rather than look at each team and try […]
