Game 2 Wrap

With Game 1 of the NBA Finals proving a bit of a lemon from a competitive standpoint, most neutrals – myself included – would have been hoping and praying for a more resilient Boston team to show up in the second game. They didn’t disappoint. If you weren’t lucky (or unemployed) enough to be free […]

Backing the Green

No, this is not the 2008 Finals again. It’s completely different. The Celtics have a very different looking bench and an All-Defensive point guard. The Lakers are better and are the reigning champions. But I’m still tipping history to repeat itself and the Celtics to walk home with championship #18. Here’s why. It’s a boring […]

Days 30-32: Starting to feel like 2008 again

Day 30 – Where Orlando ’10 looked like Cleveland ’09 3 votes – Ray Allen. Ray was real smooth in this one. Smoothly draining 8-16 shots on his way to a team-high 25 points, smoothly sneaking into the key to grab 7 rebounds (an equal-playoff high for Ray), and smoothly sinking two free throws with […]

Day 25 – Lebron Disappears, for now

Votes seem inconsequential on this day. Even the result of the game seem inconsequential. All that will be remembered on this day, Day 25 of the 2010 NBA Playoffs, is that Lebron James completely stunned the basketball world. Not in the usual way he does, by flashing glimpses of basketball genius, but in a way […]

Day 11 – Juice Boost

Contrary to what my mate Wibo tells me, Ray Allen’s head clearly does not always have a matte finish 3 votes – Caron Butler. Who saw this coming? If you had told me one Mavs player would explode for 35 and 11 in Game 6 I would have bet my house on it being Dirk […]

Day 4 – The Mamba Strikes Back

3 votes – Kobe Bryant. Hard to go past the Mamba. A day after his coach called him out for bad shot selection, Mamba’s shot fell when it needed to in the fourth (15 points) as he out-dueled Kevin Durant on the way to 39. Kobe showed that he can still pour in the points […]

2009-2010 Fantasy Wrap-up

Think back to last October as we waited in anticipation for the 2009/10 NBA season to begin. The Richard Jefferson and Antonio McDyess acquisitions installed San Antonio as West favourites in many experts’ eyes. We wondered whether one ball was enough for the Memphis Grizzlies’ offense. We were annoyed that Spanish phenom Ricky Rubio wouldn’t […]

Sunday Six Pack: Guns, Rays and Sweedes

ONE: Quick Aussie Roundup first. After leaving yesterday’s game against the Knicks after just 5 minutes with a migraine, the Bogey Man bounced back today with a very solid 21 point, 8 rebound effort against the Pacers. More importantly, the Bucks have won 5 out of their last 6 and seem to be gelling at […]

Happy Birthday Ray

No clues as to who made this. Happy Birthday Ray, hope you have a very smooth day. No doubt you will. UPDATE 22/7: Curious to know what Ray Allen does on his birthday? I know I am. I asked my former housemate (familiar to regular readers as the obsessive Ray Allen fan) who probably has […]

Day 15 – Exhale

AP Photo/Michael Dwyer The great series had to end. Some predicted a Celtics blow-out, some suggested a Bulls upset victory, while many presumed it would reach at least one overtime period before ending again in epic fashion. The answer was neither of those, or perhaps somewhere in between. The game didn’t reach the nail-biting heights […]
