Lamar Odom’s Baby Died In Sleep

Friday, June 30th, 2006

I would just like to take a moment of silence to mourn for the death of L.A. Laker Lamar Odom’s baby son.
His 6 1/2 month old baby son died in his sleep. This is an awful and tragic incident and I give Lamar and his wife (if they get to read this) my sincere […]

NBA Draft 2006 - It Was Crazy!

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

Since I’m from the Philippines, I had to wake up before 7:00 am just to be ready to watch the 2006 NBA Draft live. I just have to say that it was well worth the trouble of waking up much much earlier than I normally do. It’s great to see so many teams making anywhere […]

Adam Morrison Signs With Adidas

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

He’s one of the the incoming rookies expected to be drafted as one of the first, if not first overall. He led the NCAA Division I in scoring before leaving Gonzaga to declare for the draft. The draft is just hours away and Adam and his fellow prospects are unsure as to where they will […]

Andrea Bargnani Looks Great!

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

News is out that the Toronto Raptors are holding on to their number 1 pick instead of trading it down. Prospects LaMarcus Aldridge and Andrea Bargnani seem to be front runners for who the Raptors just might draft. If you’re looking for a good fit, Aldridge might be better because he’s a low post […]

Iverson Trade Rumors

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

Ever since the Sixers stopped making the playoffs the Allen Iverson trade rumors have always been rampantly circulating, especially just before the trade deadline period and the offseason. I’ve heard a lot in the past such as an Iverson for Vince Carter deal when Vince was still a Raptor. Now there’s a new one that […]

NBA Draft Busts

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

It’s drafting season again so many NBA fans are nervous as to who their favorite teams will select to improve the roster. This is the perfect time then to share with you all Sports Illustrated’s take on NBA Draft Busts. It’s an interesting photo presentation but I don’t quite agree with some of the “busts” […]

Len Bias 20 Years After

Saturday, June 24th, 2006

It’s fun and mind boggling to set up “what if” scenarios. What if Bill Walton was healthy his whole career? What if Grant Hill never got injured? What if MJ never returned to the game after his first retirement? These are all interesting questions and we’ll never really know for sure what the answer to […]

Knicks Fire Larry Brown

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

It’s official! The Knicks fire Larry Brown after leading them to their most disappointing season ever with a record of 23-59. It’s disappointing because the Knicks roster is full of big names such as Steve Francis, Stephon Marbury, Quentin Richardson, Jalen Rose, Eddy Curry and others yet they manage to tie the franchise’s losing record. […]

Raptors Trade For Nesterovic

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

Bryan Colangelo makes another move just to show that he’s serious about improving his Toronto Raptors. They traded veteran forward Eric Williams, young forward Matt Bonner and a 2009 second round pick to the San Antonio Spurs for center Rasho Nesterovic and some cash considerations.
The Raptors seriously needed a legitimate center to fill in […]

Miami Heat Take First NBA Title

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

Shaquille O’Neal promised an NBA Title when he arrived in Miami via the trade from the L.A. Lakers. It took him a few years and but he delivered. He delivered with the help of a team effort, a legendary coach and a phenomenal superstar. They won by winning game 6 with a score of 95-92.
The […]
