It's no secret that I've been a critic of LeBron James over the years, there have been no shortage of anti-LBJ diatribes here: but I gotta say, I'm now a bit of a fan. I know when I decided to try appreciate him, I'm not sure when it happened – becoming fully appreciative of the […]
The way the Lakers have played this season, and the way the fans have reacted, has had me thinking about 'passion'… and the differing levels of fandom. Something that I find interesting, is the fandom expressed by College fans as compared to their NBA counterparts. The NBA fan (in general) doesn't define themselves by being […]

. Kevin Love goes all Kojak to raise $$ for breast cancer. Tweet and/or like (on youtube or facebook) then Love (and Larry Fitzgerald who does the barbering!) will donate cash to charity. http://youtube.com/watch?v=jrMvuaUXMkk?rel=0
.Gotta give it up to Roy Hibbert. This is the coolest thing I’ve seen an NBA player do in a very, very long time. http://youtube.com/watch?v=9c4hY8mQM6Y?rel=0 Rock it out Roy. Winning fans left, right & center. Even Lakerfans.
.Well, only games away from the end of the season. End of season awards will soon be announced (LeBron almost sure to win his 3rd MVP), and that includes the All NBA teams. For the most part, it’s pretty clear-cut. Generally speaking, the 1st team’s easy. Almost. Sports betting has it a certainty of LeBron/Durant/Kobe […]
.Front page of ESPN: WHAM! Dunk of the Night: Blake on Ibaka. Except it wasn’t. Griffin should have been called for an offensive foul on that play. No clear view from that angle, but in all likelihood Griffin uses his off-hand to clear obstacles. That’s his ‘modus operandi’. Have a look at the supposed “Dunk […]
Henry Abbott of True Hoop interviewed Scott Raab, self-confessed LeBron James hater, and author of the book, The Whore of Akron. It is a pretty interesting interview. Some thoughts… but first: full disclosure. I do not like what Abbott’s become. At one point in time, Henry Abbott was inventive, creative – and had a very […]
. So a smiling Dwight Howard announces post a win against the Evil Empire Miami Heat: “Well, I told those guys, I’ve been telling them for the past two or three weeks now that I want to stay and finish the season. I told them I feel we have a great opportunity to win and […]
.It’ll be interesting to see if the NBA will do anything about Dwyane Wade‘s “hard foul” on Kobe Bryant during the All Star Game. My bet would be “no”. But this: http://youtube.com/watch?v=KcFqzSghx9Q?rel=0 … is more than just a “hard foul”. Given the circumstance of the game – a game where the players are actively getting […]
#stupidNow, maybe it was in error, and I’ll give those that are choosing the headlines the benefit of the doubt there, but in that case: how stupid can you be? Post the loss suffered by the Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks, ESPN’s story on it was “Chink In The Armor”. I’m kind of […]
. This should be an NBA staple… http://youtube.com/watch?v=zv3bYWuUUng?rel=0 Hint: post Bulls intro, skip to 3:00 for Ferrell doing the Hornets! “At guard, his favourite movie is The Notebook… Derek Rose.” Had to laugh.And “Monty Williaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaams…”Brilliant stuff. Inspired move by NOLA.
. http://youtube.com/watch?v=bHKft_9gJlY?rel=0 Gotta say, I initially thought this was bad, then second look didn’t think this was as bad… then on the third go-round noticed what looks like ‘intent’. Kevin Love looks down at Luis Scola, shorterns his step to intentionally make contact with Scola’s face. I’m trying to look for mitigating factors here… but […]
