Thanks for the memories Vince!

By: Kamal Hylton (@KamalHylton)

This marks the first step in my process as a Toronto Raptors fan to finally burying the hatchet.

This being the 20th Anniversary of the franchises existence and the Memphis Grizzlies coming to town tonight, the club have decided to give its former superstar Vince Carter a video tribute to honour all that he accomplished in his seven seasons. A career that saw him average 23.4 ppg, 3.9 apg, 5.2 rpg, 44% from the field and 38% from beyond the arc while also winning individual honours, 1998-99 Rookie of the Year, 1998-99 FirstTeam All-Rookie, 1999-00 Third Team All-NBA and 2000-01 Second Team All-NBA.

Knicks Stop Streak – James McKern

A Sunday matinee turned into an all you can eat buffet for the New York Knicks as they put their 7 game losing streak to bed.

The Denver Nuggets came into the Mecca following a 108-87 dismantling of the Indiana Pacers and looked to carry that winning feeling through.

A Frolic in the Garden – James McKern

When the doors opened at the TD Garden and the crowds began to file in, the hype surrounding this game with the locals was one of a quiet confidence. The Thunder has had a miserable start to the season and all were looking forward to adding more pain to their suffering.

Ode to the passing big man

By: Kamal Hylton (@KamalHylton)

In an era dominated by guards, quality big men are overshadowed.

This is particularly the case when looking at their offensive exploits, court vision and creativity. Having one player capable of this is rare, but a tandem of bigs that can show these skill sets are even rarer.

Frank Vogel and his merry band of misfits

By: Kamal Hylton (@KamalHylton)

Paul George out for the season, Lance Stephenson signed by the Charlotte Hornets, early injury issues to David West and Roy Hibbert being shopped around like a used car at a clearance sale… we all knew the Indiana Pacers and more specifically Frank Vogel would be in tough this season and it has been a rocky start to say the least.

Hawks flying under the radar

By: Kamal Hylton (@KamalHylton)

When we speak about the Eastern Conference, one team that rarely get talked about are the Atlanta Hawks.Their claim to fame last season was managing to make the playoffs in the 6th seed with a record of 38-44 without the services of an injured Al Horford, ultimately losing in the first round to the Indiana Pacers in six games.

Behind The Curtain – James McKern

Tuesday I was given the amazing opportunity to not only see live my first NBA game, but also to have Media access.

Heading to the game I was overcome with a feeling that can’t even be put into words, you know how in movies when a character dies and you see his ghost float out and then he spends an hour or so just watching his own body? That was exactly how I felt!

Grit and Grind going strong

By: Kamal Hylton (@KamalHylton)

They aren’t pretty, but they sure are effective.

Going a perfect 4-0 with wins over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Indiana Pacers, Charlotte Hornets and New Orleans Pelicans, the Memphis Grizzlies have gotten off to their best start in franchise history.
