Choose Life with Larry Sanders

Now usually on this blog I keep it fairly footloose and fancy free. Throw a few jokes around, a couple of cheesy one-liners and maybe make fun of Dwight Howard’s post game for a while. This piece though, I’ve gone in a different direction. The story of Larry Sanders and his leaving of the NBA, indefinitely, made me stand up and take notice. To me, it is a story that needs attention. Today Larry’s story has my attention and I hope it can grab your attention as well. (more…)

Top Underrated Stars

Every team has their superstar. The guy who gets buckets when it counts, forces turnovers in the clutch and makes plays us mere mortals can only dream of pulling off. Cleveland have LeBron. The Lakers have Kobe. Houston have Harden and the Thunder have Durant. But what about the others on the roster? The ones who go unnoticed by the casual observer but are game changers to those in the know. These are the underrated stars. Their stats may not be great but it’s the little things they do that endear them to coaches, players and fans alike. Here are my top underrated stars thus far in the 2014/15 season. (more…)

Celtics Fans Say Goodbye To Fan Favourite Green

It’s always hard seeing a player you like traded away. You watch these guys almost daily, playing their way through a tough 82 game regular season. It’s hard not to feel connected to these players in some way.

Some players you tend to feel an affinity to more than others.

Stand up Jeff Green.

When is it time for the Cavs to panic?

The Cleveland Cavaliers currently sit in fifth spot in the Eastern Conference, nursing a 19-14 record for a winning percentage of 0.576. Though those numbers hardly suggest the need for an all-out anxiety attack, there were high expectations for the Cavs this season, and they simply don’t appear close to matching them at present.

Loyalty?

All good supporters and fans of the NBA know that as much as this game is a sport, it’s become more so of a business.

But is it this business approach, and side of the game, that has made it increasingly harder to stay loyal to one team when your favorite players are sent packing?

#RookieWatch: Dante Exum

Being just under a third of the way through the NBA season its time to check back in on my Rookie to see how season number 1 is tracking.

As I stated in my initial Rookie Watch article, I’m a pretty tough judge on this kid.

NBA: Preseason-Chicago Bulls at Milwaukee Bucks

Jabari Parker Torn ACL; Will Miss Remainder Of Season

Milwaukee Bucks Rookie Jabari Parker has informed teammates of a torn ACL in his left knee sustained during an awkward drive in the paint against the Suns yesterday, per Y! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

Parker, the #2 overall pick in this year’s draft, has been averaging 12.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, and is also second in field goal percentage (.490), helping the Bucks clamber back towards playoffs relevancy. 

The young forward will now miss the rest of the 2014/15 NBA season. We wish him a speedy and healthy recovery.

When Destiny Meets Greatness [Video]

He’s just 31 points away from third on the all time scoring list, but that’s not the real accomplishment for a guy like Kobe Bryant. Having modeled his game from a man who is widely regarded as the greatest to ever play, the passing of Michael Jordan holds a high level of significance for the Black Mamba, and he’s nearly there.
