Entertanking is dead, long live the Phoenix Suns.

Okay Phoenix, I admit it, I was wrong. I was wrong to dismiss your season before it begun. I was wrong to assume that a roster made up of seemingly ill-fitting role players and under-appreciated glue-guys being spearheaded by two historically ball-dominant back up point guards, would amount to anything other than a spectacular success.

Things Are Heating Up In Phoenix

The Phoenix Suns are beginning to show some real promise as a playoff contending team this season. Most analysts, fans and experts had the Suns slated as a team that was merely there to contend for the lottery and one that had a real chance of claiming the number one pick at seasons end but […]

Chicago’s European Saviour?

There’s been a fair amount of doom and gloom for fans of Windy City basketball. The Chicago Bulls start to the 2013/14 season has been one to forget. The early rust from Derrick Rose was something many people were prepared to look past but things went from bad to worse when the Bulls lost him […]

‘The Backpack Baller’ – Interview With Brad Graham

This weekend past, I clicked into my ‘Podcasts’ app on my iPhone to see which of my favourite NBA Podcasts had been updated with new episodes. It was then that I noticed the brilliant CRTSDE podcast had posted a ‘Mini-sode’ which had regular B.G discussing his new project ‘The Backpack Baller’. At first, I thought […]

Portland Off to a Hot Start

It’s amazing what a good bench can do for a basketball team. It’s all well and good to want to talk about stars on a basketball team but often it’s the bench players, role players, hustle players that add that missing link that can turn an average team into a good one. The Portland Trail […]

Jordan Crawford: The Player That Splits The League Right Down The Middle

Boston Celtics guard Jordan Crawford is the player most fans in the past (and if I’m honest even now) love to hate.

And Out Come the Wolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves are at a crossroads. Like the crossroads in a long lost Blues song, Minnesota fans would almost certainly sell their soul to the devil for a winning basketball team. They have spent numerous years dwelling at the bottom of the Western Conference and barring injury, this season should be considered the true […]

The Pelican Takes Flight

There’s always added pressure that comes from being drafted first in the NBA. It comes with an expectation that that particular player will be a star in the league. The problem with this kind of expectation is that it’s often misguided hope, whether it’s hope from the fans or hope from the team’s front office […]

Keeping A Close Eye On You!

While the title of this feature may sound a little creepy, stick with me, this isn’t me declaring my stalker habits. Far from it. With the new season just around the corner, I get to thinking about the players that I would be keen to follow and watch closely. Obviously most fans will be eager […]

Ten Things I Love/Hate About You

The NBA season isn’t too far away now and there’s a lot to look forward to in season 2013/14 but I thought I’d share ten things that are on my mind as we impatiently wait for the season to begin 10. Pre-season. It’s better than no NBA basketball at all and it’s the pre-cursor to […]
