Reflecting on the 2013 NBA Finals – Part II: The Heat and LeBron James

I received more than a fair share of emails and messages since Part I was posted, mostly of a curious nature. I thought it best to respond to these before we get on to the Heat and LeBron. Firstly, to those who asked, I do not hate Tim Duncan, and it was certainly not my […]

Can the Knicks beat Miami?

They’ve won 13 straight games, Carmelo is playing like a two-way superstar and Ray Felton is back to his best ball.

The mystery of ‘the post’

However, as the league’s SuperTeam era continues into this season and has a new member in the LA Lakers, now with Steve […]

Whats Doin: Knicks’ basketball, you gotta laugh

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * A night on the town in Shanghai with the Miami Heat. * Jeremy Evans with an insane block and dunk. Could that be the Play of the Year already? * I think we can kiss goodbye to Andrew Bogut being ready for the […]

Whats Doin: Mark Jackson, you’re a fraud!

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * Andrew Bogut’s left arm is longer than his right arm. Freaky. * Luxury taxes mean squat to Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov; he’s known to make $20-30 million PER DAY! * Man of God (and husband and father) Mark Jackson has been caught with […]
