Sunday Six Pack: Beastly Bogut, Confusing Trades and Lessons in Losing

So its been a little while between updates lately. My bad. Some overseas travel and my annual Golf Trip are the main culprits. But I’m back home and geared up for some serious ILP watching and blogging over the Christmas break, so I promise I’ll make up for it. ONE: Our little blogging drought lately […]

2010-11 NBA Preview – Sleepers, Creepers and Grenades

Greetings, gentlemen and ladyboys. Today I come to you not from the glitz and glamour of South Beach, the sunshine and G-strings of the Gold Coast or even from amongst the skanky delights of my home city’s own Kings Cross.

Day 9 & 10 – Kobe cruises and the MIP

PLAYOFF DIARY: DAY 9 & 10 Few things I learnt from the last couple of days: The Washington Wizards must have the collective memory of a goldfish. So far pushing Lebron’s buttons has been about as successful as Lance Whitnall’s trips to the fat farm. But wait, I know, why don’t we call him a […]

Day 3: T-Mac first round exit… Take 7!

PLAYOFF DIARY: DAY 3 I’m sorry T-Mac. This isn’t going to be the year you break your six-time first round playoff drought. But hey, it’s not all bad. At least you’re not up 3-1 making spectacular predictions like how it’s “nice to finally be in the second round”, which is usually a comment reserved for […]

Tizzle goes to New York: Part II

Check Part I of Tizzle’s Knicksperience in New York Game 4 vs. Washington Riding high off the big blow out against the Pistons I was pumped for this game. Was curious to see how well the Knicks would come out, and also to see how Caron Butler played. When the Knicks were being introduced Balkman […]
