Redd Explodes, Bucks Win Game 3 at Home

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

This first round series is filled with amazing victories and sad upsets, making this year’s playoffs really exciting so far. The Milwaukee Bucks’ amazing win over the visiting Detroit Pistons (124-104) is something no one really expected. After being dealt harsh losses for games 1 and 2, it’s expected that the Bucks would at least […]

Game 3: Lakers beat Suns 99-92
It was another team effort for the Lakers, winning 99-92 over the Suns. Kobe is getting the hang of involving his team, which was good since Kobe had a relatively bad scoring night, scoring 17 points with 6 for 18 shooting. The best of players like Larry Bird know […]

Grizzlies’ Mike Miller Gets Sixth Man Award

Saturday, April 29th, 2006

The 2000-2001 Rookie of the Year Mike Miller of the Memphis Grizzlies now gets another top honor - as a reserve. His production off the bench this season was so spectacular he could very well have been a starter like he was last season. In spite of that, he had no problems energizing […]

Shaq Struggles, Bulls Win Game 3

Friday, April 28th, 2006

After being dealt two losses in this first round series, the Chicago Bulls manage to pull a 109-90 win over the Miami Heat. The Bulls kept the scoring coming with 5 of the Bulls scoring in double figures, three of whom went over the 20 point mark. The Shaq-Wade one-two punch didn’t quite deliver in […]

Mouthpiece Throwing Incident Good For Haslem?

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

In the wake of his mouthpiece toss Saturday, a sports marketing firm called Udonis Haslem’s agent, Jason Levien, and told him a mouth guard company has interest in signing Haslem to an endorsement deal. Haslem would consider it. Source
It’s funny how things end up sometimes. You get a suspension for throwing your mouthpiece at […]

Kobe Explodes, Lakers Team Effort Beats Suns

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

Somehow I could imagine the Zen Master whispering to Kobe after their game 2 victory against the Suns, “You did well, young Padawan”. Yes, the Lakers emerged victorious (99-93) after a pretty disappointing loss in game 1. The Lakers still stuck to the game plan that didn’t seem to work in game 1. With Kobe […]

Steve Nash To Be Named 2005-2006 MVP

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

The MVP race reached it’s end now that the NBA is now in the playoffs. It’s been such a great season for many players that they each had a legitimate case for making it. We’re talking about the spectacular performances of Dirk, Lebron, Kobe, Elton Brand, Billups, Tony Parker and Steve Nash.
But only one wins […]

Kobe Will Be #8 No More

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

According to sources, Kobe will hang up his #8 jersey and will use the #24 next season, the number he wore as a high school baller at Lower Merion High School. He originally wanted to wear his father’s #33 but that belonged to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, whose jersey is now retired.
#24 eh. Wonder why Kobe is […]

Triple Threat Wins It For Wizards, series tied 1-1

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

After Lebron’s spectacular performance in Game 1 than led the Cavs to a game 1 victory, the Wizards came into game 2 with a sense of urgency. I said in a previous post that a lot could happen in a seven game series so it’s not time for the Cavs to celebrate. The series […]

Clippers beat Nuggets, series 2-0

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

It’s been a great season for the Clippers. Though that’s not something I would have said last season, I love saying it now. The Clippers have had the reputation of being the league’s in-house development team, having guys like Quentin Richardson, Lamar Odom, Bobby Simmons and Andre Miller in their roster at some point in […]
