When it comes to voting for the 2013-14 NBA Coach of the Year, I wish those ‘fortunate’ enough to be asked to fill out a ballot all the very best of luck. Always a hotly contested award, this season has an even deeper field of worthy recipients, for which I personally struggle to nominate the […]

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 […]

Russell Westbrook’s Army of Detractors

No NBA superstar is more polarizing than Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook. The Thunder point guard is undeniably talented, and unquestionably one of the best players in the NBA.
