Reflecting on the 2013 NBA Finals – Part I: The Spurs and Tim Duncan

This post is deliberately a few weeks late because I had to let everything from the 2013 Finals soak for a little while. As I said in the Finals roundtable, it was an emotional rollercoaster, even for the neutral NBA fan. Now that the shock and awe of Game 6 and 7 has subsided, I […]

Playoff Diary – Week 6 – 27th May 2013

Where has LeBron’s post game gone? (Note: This was written on Sunday night prior to Game 3, so needless to say I watched today’s demolition with LeBron wrecking havoc in the post, with particular joy.

Day 39 – Sturm und drang und…Bärte?

Firstly, apologies both to the rest of the boys and our readers for my irregular posting for the playoff diary. I’ve been super busy the last couple of weeks, firstly with assignments (I still have one that needs to go in and it’s now two weeks late!) as well as working on a piece that […]

Day 33 – Streakbusters

It took them three attempts at it, but as we all expected – the Oklahoma City Thunder finally put an end to the phenomenal win streak by the San Antonio Spurs.
