A Look Back At Iguodala

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Of all the new young dunkers in the NBA, I consider Philadelphia 76er Andre Iguodala to be at the top of the list. He’s a young, he’s athletic and energetic who can pull of a monster dunk but he can also has other aspects to his game aside from junk dunking and finishing alley-oops. I […]

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

No no not the rapper Nelly but Coach Don Nelson who used to coach the Dallas Mavericks a few years ago until he handed Avery Johnson the coaching reins. A Boston Celtic in his playing days, Nelson saw more individual success in his career as a coach, being one of the winningest coaches in basketball […]

Memory Lane: Backboard Breakers

Monday, August 28th, 2006

Out of boredom I wanted to see the footage of the two backboard breakers: Darryl “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins and Shaq. Being a relatively recent fan of the game and youtube and such websites coming out just recently too, I never saw the clips… until now. I just want to share it with you guys. For […]

SI’s Marty Burns: How To Help The Hawks

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

It’s really funny how things happen sometimes. Here I was reading the comments placed on this post about how the Hawks don’t seem to know what they’re doing. I thought to myself that the Hawks are taking the place of the LA Clippers as the laughing stock franchise - the butt of all teams. In […]

Saturday, August 26th, 2006

Very soon after the completion of the much awaited Al Harrington trade to the Indiana Pacers, another discussion of bringing in another prominent big man has surfaced. It’s nothing official yet but the thought of signing veteran big Antonio Davis has crossed the mind of Pacers CEO Donnie Walsh and it looks like Davis […]

Poll: Will Team USA Win the Gold Medal?

Friday, August 25th, 2006

The preliminary round of the World Championships is over and as expected Team USA is still alive. The roster led by King James, Melo, and the Flash is filled with NBA talent but the international arena is different from what they’re used to. Team USA has to watch it because their performance isn’t exactly good. […]

Coach Riley Not Retiring!

Thursday, August 24th, 2006

After the Miami Heat won their NBA title last season, there was a fear that that championship team would just “fall apart”. With guys like Alonzo Mourning and Gary Payton finally earning their rings, those two important pieces of that team were expected to retire. It was also feared that Riley might step down as […]

End of The Neverending Harrington Saga and Other Rants

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006

First of all I want to say “Finally!” and “Thank God!” that Al Harrington finally has a new home (actually he’s back home) in the Indiana Pacers. His story was getting stale very fast. the Pacers deal mentioned here is the one that finally happened and I’m happy that it did. The Pacers need Harrington […]

Which Harrington Deal Is It?

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

After the Pacers owner nixed the original proposed Al Harrington deal offered by the Hawks, it seemed Indiana’s hope to get the former Pacer back was dead. After making some adjustments to the offer it seems the deal might fall through after all.
Harrington, according to NBA front-office sources, is expected to sign a four-year […]
