The five most annoying players in the NBA?

Don’t confuse this for a knucklehead list; I’ve already done that. No, these are the guys that for whatever reason just get under your skin. They’re the itch that can’t be scratched. 5. Carlos Boozer There’s not much to like about this guy. You’ve got that silly manicured beard, the bogus hair, the sloppy D, […]

Sunday Six Pack: Misfiring Aussies, Vince and the 81

ONE: Kicking off the Aussie round-up with the Bogey Man, I’d like to first point out that he is still the league-leading shot blocker. You know, just in case there’s anyone reading this thinking he isn’t All-Star worthy. He’s also 5th in the league in rebounds per game with 11.5, confirming what we already knew […]

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 20 – Vince Carter, Playoff Warrior

3 votes – Dwight Howard: Beast. This Atlanta team was always going to struggle to contain someone of Dwight’s size, so the onus was on Dwight to be able to stay out of foul trouble and execute. And execute he did. Monstering Al Horford and a veritable smorgasbord of 7”0 duds off the bench, Howard […]

Day 5 – Where a bit of Vince happened

3 votes – Tim Duncan. I was amused to see Richard Jefferson making the headlines after this game thanks to his 19 points. “Jefferson bounces back”… “Jefferson the key as Spurs tie it at 1-1″. Has RJ’s stock really plummeted that much since becoming a Spur that we applaud a 19-point game? Is everyone that […]
