Gary Payton into the Hall of Fame

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfM1GrwPACk]

Gary Payton has just been inducted into the NBA’s Hall of Fame and it is thoughourly deserved. Payton was always a great player to watch. He was brash, arrogant but he knew how to back it up. He earnt his nickname ‘The Glove’ for his ability to lock down his man on defense. GP took this moniker to new levels when he kept Michael Jordan to below 30 points for three consecutive games in the NBA Finals. Nobody else has done this. This is amazing enough in itself but Payton also had a calf injury that would have kept others sidelined. (more…)



Allen Iverson wants the crowd to be louder

Iverson Set to Call it Quits

Allen Iverson, the 11 time all star, the 2001 MVP, the man who on his own took Philadelphia to the 2001 Finals, is set to draw the curtain on his NBA career. Iverson is one of the best small men ballers to ever step foot on the court. Though sometimes he was controversial, he was always loved by fans worldwide. The little man that could. The things he could do were almost impossible but he always found a way to score or get to the basket. Not only was he a one of a kind scorer but he also loved to pick up steals. In a playoff game against the Orlando Magic he picked up 10 steals to go with his 33 points. Not a bad effort. The highlights on him are endless but I will always remember when he crossed up MJ and that infamous step over Tyronn Lue after breaking his ankles in game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Lakers. The NBA world thanks you Allen Iverson.

As the Thunder pull further away in the West, their tactics become even more ruthless.

It’s great to see the big men get physical but we dont need this in our game.

The NBA has today suspended both Warriors Centre David Lee & Pacers Centre Roy Hibbert for their roles in yesterdays brawl which spilt into the lower section of the arena.

Both players will serve 1 game bans. An interesting reaction from the NBA, most were expecting more due to the brawl finding its way into the crowd (as you can see towards the end of the video).

It’ll be very interesting to see what happens when these teams meet again.
