Aussie Roundup – 12th November 2012

Shaun is the newest writer to hit the pine for NBAMate. He talks about basketball (on 97.9FM, check it out) and writes about it because he’s 5’10 and can’t jump. He supports the Washington Wizards (not a typo) thanks to NBA live 97 and 98, and he also enjoys long walks on the beach. After […]

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 […]

Down Memory Lane: Joey Crawford loses his mind, tosses Duncan for laughing

Throughout this long and tedious NBA offseason we’re going to delve into the archives and take a look at some of the more memorable moments from previous years.

Patty Mills opts out

Patty Mills has opted out of his deal with San Antonio, becoming a free agent. From Spurs Nation: In a move long expected, and one that does not necessarily guarantee his departure from the Spurs, backup point guard Patrick Mills has declined a second-year option with the team. Spurs officials acknowledge the contractual deadline for […]

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 […]

Day 20 – Feeling the Heat

This is not how the story is supposed to go. Miami, title favorites for much of the season, are now in a 2-1 hole against the Indiana Pacers in the second round. Let me put that another way. The Indiana Pacers are 2 wins away from making the Eastern Conference Finals. The scary part? Right […]

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 […]
