Today the NBA officially announced the team logo’s for the Brooklyn Nets.
Opening day of the 2012 NBA Playoffs was not only an exciting day full of great match-ups but was also a heartbreaking, season-ending day for 2 players.
The Nuggets and Lakers meet in the playoffs tomorrow for the sixth time since 1976. The Lakers have been victorious every time, this time could be different. The Nuggets finished 3 wins behind the Lakers, 3 wins from holding home court.

I believe it was done intentionally, as to why? I have no idea, it was very strange. You could tell by the way his arm followed through that it was intended to connect. Elbows are dangerous, and obviously not welcome in the game. The NBA will be suspending him for sure and wouldn’t be surprised if they force him to sit out the first round of the Playoffs.
