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 […]

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 […]

I’d been thinking about doing a weekly recap of NBA news for quite some time now and between work, […]

Dwight Howard struggles in Manila; Gets booed by Laker fans

The Houston Rockets made a statement last night in Manila with a resounding 116-96 victory over the much-hyped Indiana Pacers as part of the NBA preseason’s Global Games. The franchise’s new centerpiece, Dwight Howard, looked to be regaining some of the form he had presumably lost during his one year stint with the LA Lakers, […]
