The James Harden trade – OKC’s first big mistake?

I was supposed to sit down to write an assignment. I’d just put out a smoke and was preparing to knuckle down to right the last 1500 words on Rousseau and inequality after a quick Twitter check this Sunday arvo. The first thing I see? “James Harden and his beard on his way to Houston.” […]

Whats Doin: Dream Team vs. 2012 Team USA?

A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball. * This is mad – the NBA 2K13 trailer featuring the Dream Team vs. the 2012 Team USA, set to “Run This Town” by Jay-Z, Kanye West and Rihanna. * Check out the Spurs’ new alternate jerseys. Not bad but it looks like a […]

Game 5 and the newly crowned King

It’s only a matter of time. Since the most eventful NBA off-season (2010) that I’ve ever witnessed in my life, every NBA fan looked at the newly formed Miami Heat, either with wide-eyed amazement or with pure disgust, and uttered those words at some point along the journey. You couldn’t assemble three Franchise players, including […]

Heat vs Thunder Finals Preview

Robd: “It’s only right, it’s only right” said LeBron when asked about his opponents the Oklahoma City Thunder in the upcoming Finals. I couldn’t have said it any better. “Only right” that the best two teams in the league are left to face off each other. “Only right” that the best two young players in […]

Day 41 – Like a Bosh

So the bracket has finally been resolved and we have our two finalists. It’s come as no real surprise that the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder will be the two teams battling it out for the hardware. It’s true, they play the games for a reason, but it was fairly obvious before the […]

Day 35 – All knotted up

This Spurs v Thunder series is a couple of 50 point games and some overtime periods from being an all-time classic. The back and forth between these two western conference heavyweights is a treat to watch, and it looks as if it’s going down to the wire. We’re now 2-2, with a best of 3 […]

Day 31 – Spurs streak still alive

So the incredible regular season / post season streak continues for the Spurs (now at 20 wins), and the Thunder are in a 0-2 hole needing to win four of the next five. Doesn’t sound very likely does it? While there’s no moral victories in the playoffs, the Thunder can take something away from this game. The fact the […]

Thunders vs Spurs WCF Preview

JT: Get ready to see the best basketball of the year. This series could be one for the ages, with arguably the two best teams in the league, both with vastly different identities, going at it. I’m giddy at the prospect. And I love the fact that both sides will get a week to prepare and get right. On […]

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 […]

Day 6 – LBJ still taking care of business

After six days of the NBA playoffs it’s looking as if the window has officially shut on the Mavericks’ aspirations of defending their title. And in New York, LeBron & Co played their first playoff game in Madison Square Garden – they didn’t disappoint. 3 votes – LeBron James. After three quarters had been played […]
