Clueless: The Rudy Gay trade

It’s been more than 24 hours since we knew Rudy Gay was going to be a Toronto Raptor, and for the life of me I still can’t figure out the logic behind the deal for any party. Well, maybe that’s a bit harsh. Detroit have done pretty well in getting Jose Calderon for Austin Daye […]

Q&A Roundtable: The home stretch

With only a few weeks left in the 2011-2012 season and some teams having as few as 10 games left to play, we’re well and truly on the home stretch. Perfect time then to check in with the NBAMate crew and pick their brains on all the big questions. Q&A stylez. 1. The Heat’s recent […]

Lockout Blues: Of Teams And Man

The NBA has too many teams. There. I’ve set out the basic premise of this article in the very first line. Last time, I discussed the problem of market size in the NBA. Part of the reason this is a problem is that the NBA simply over-expanded over the years, which has also served to […]

2009-2010 Fantasy Wrap-up

Will we see the King finally crowned with his new Diesel-powered sidekick? Will Dwight get redemption along with […]

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 […]

I came downstairs gingerly after a few too many Winnies the night before and plonked myself on the couch next to my housemate who was flicking through the usual Saturday morning Foxtel garbage.
