ESPN’s Trade Machine

Monday, July 31st, 2006

Ever wondered about whether certain trades could be done? Well, here’s the answer to that: ESPN’s NBA Trade Machine! I tried out a few stuff and I found out that (if they wanted to) Minnesota could trade KG to Indiana for Jermaine O’Neal. It’s fun. Try out some trades yourself.
Here’s another one I tried and […]

Jamaal Magloire a Blazer?

Sunday, July 30th, 2006

I consider Milwaukee Bucks GM Larry Harris someone who, like Danny Ainge of the Celtics, doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing at times and has strokes of genius at other times. I can’t really say he’s incompetent but he’s not consistent. Danny Ainge has had praise for the drafting of Delonte West, Tony […]

Raptors Sign Uros Slokar

Saturday, July 29th, 2006

The Portland Trailblazers were the busiest team on draft day but it’s clear to us all that the Toronto Raptors are having the busiest offseason of all teams. The arrival of former Suns GM Bryan Colangelo and the Benetton Treviso’s GM Maurizio Gherardini as the team’s VP and assistant GM has brought with it […]

Google Fight: Miami Heat Vs. Dallas Mavericks

Friday, July 28th, 2006

Dr. Hsien Hsien Lei from A Hearty Life started this amusing thing around b5media on using Google Fight. So I decided to make one of my own here in NBA Obsessed. So for the doubters out there, here’s the 2006 NBA Finals once again: Miami Heat VS. Dallas Mavericks. Click on the images below.

Hmm… Looks […]

For the Doubters… Lebron IS 21!

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

I just came across is ESPN article, Signed Sealed and Delivered, Lebron is 21. It’s about those people who joked around about Lebron’s true age. It’s really funny because so many guys including Dwayne Wade and Gilbert Arenas don’t seem to believe that he’s just 21 years old.
But here’s the birth certificate to prove […]

AI Off The Market

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

The whole time Iverson was being mentioned in deals especially with the Boston Celtics, I felt all disgusted about it. I even made a post about it before, saying the Sixers should just keep him. Well that’s what eventually happened since Sixers GM Billy King announced AI is not being dealt anywhere anymore. He’s off […]

Mavs Make Some Moves

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

The Dallas Mavericks really don’t seem happy with the roster that got them to the NBA Finals so their making some moves. They already traded away Marquis Daniels to the Pacers for Austin Croshere. Now the Mavs made another deal with Pacers when they traded Darrell Armstrong, Josh Powell and Rawle Marshall for point guard […]

Steve Nash’s Buzzcut Look

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

Ok so this piece of news is about a week old but I only decided to blog about it now. Phoenix Suns’s star point guard Steve Nash showed up with his famous mop top hairdo all gone. instead he sported a buzzcut look that really doesn’t look anything like him at all.
“I just cut […]

Kings Sign John Salmons, Let Bonzi Go

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

So it seems John Salmons was very well in demand this offseason. He had offers from the Phoenix Suns and the Toronto Raptors. The Suns got Marcus Banks, John Salmons backed out of the sign and trade deal with Toronto and shortly after he has an offer from the Sacramento Kings and takes it. Yes, […]

Fred Jones to the Raptors

Monday, July 24th, 2006

I always wondered if Fred Jones would ever leave the Indiana Pacers since he had a really nice nickname going on there. Now it seems the nickname “Indiana Jones” is dead since he’s now going to the Toronto Raptors. I think the Raptors began to pursue Jones when Sixer free agent John Salmons backed […]
