The Big Man Curse

The NBA big man. Such an integral piece to any team hoping to be competitive in a sport basically designed to favour those who are giants. But through my research i’ve found out that it doesn’t always work out that way. Being tall doesn’t neccessarily make you a force in the hoops world. In fact […]

Mike D’Antoni Resigns As Lakers Coach

In the wake of one of the worst 24 months in Los Angeles Lakers history, much maligned head coach Mike D’Antoni has resigned from his position with the team effective immediately. D’Antoni arrived in LA as a successor to Mike Brown, who was fired by the Lakers after a 1-5 start to the 2012 season. […]

The “T” Word

Tanking. It’s like the new planking. Everyone is talking about it so I thought I’d join the party in an upright seated position. Is it happening in the NBA? Is it worth it? Does it work? Or is this just a story that has been blown out of proportion and turned into something bigger than it actually is? After […]

The Best of the All-Stars

Is Hack-a-Dwight Bad Sportsmanship?

Dwight and Shaq. Shaq and Dwight. You cannot talk about one without the other. Both played at Orlando. Both at one stage or another were the poster child of what a big man should be. Both played under the bright lights of LA. Both cannot shoot from outside 3 ft from the hoop, but Dwight, did […]

Weekly Hoop Scoop #2

So last week’s edition of the weekly hoop scoop was M.I.A due to some much deserved, OK, maybe just needed, holiday time for myself and now that I’m back in the realm of weekly drudgery, a few kilos heavier and with an even bigger drinking habit than before I left, I felt it was time to get back […]

Two Minutes With: Aron Baynes

As promised, here is the next instalment of Two Minutes With.  I was really excited about the opportunity to have a word with Aron, not only due to the fact that he’s an Aussie playing in the NBA but because he’s had to take the long road and battle to get there. I got the opportunity […]

After months of whinging and whining about a lack of basketball, hoops junkies everywhere are getting their proverbial fix this week and what a start to the NBA season we’ve had so far. I’d been thinking about doing a weekly recap of NBA news for quite some time now and between work, […]

An Open Letter to Dwight Howard

Dearest Dwight, My name is Nathan Darby. I write as a part of an NBA blog in Australia. It’s pretty good. You should really read it sometime but I digress. Today I happened to be doing some research around the web and stumbled across a story by Sekou Smith on his Hangtime Blog on NBA.com […]
