Rumors On Gasol Trade Untrue

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

It’s a relief to know that the rumors about the Grizzlies looking to trade their star Pau Gasol isn’t true. I already had a strong feeling that they were one of those stupid rumors but with the NBA so complicated these days and with all the surprises, you really can’t tell what to expect.
With […]

Headbands Issue

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

This whole Ben Wallace - Scott Skiles problem with the headbands sounds like such a juvenile issue that I feel both of them should be kicked in the nuts. This whole problem is causing tension between the two. They’re both personally responsible for the team playing badly as of late. I’m a huge NBA Live […]

Bobcats Add Depth With Derek Anderson

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

The Bobcats like roster versatility and that means they need some players who can play more than one position so the adjustment process will be easier. it also means roster depth so that reserves can take a starting role whenever asked to. Take the current example of the injury to center Primoz Brezec. Big man […]

Video: Some Really Bad Dunk Contest Dunks

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

It’s still to early to think about the All Star Weekend and the Slam Dunk Contest (or is it? All Star Voting already?) but this youtube video I got from Hoopsaddict is hilarious. It shows some really bad dunks. In fact the title of the video is NBA - 5 worst dunks ever. Check out […]

Official Scorer Makes a Boo Boo?

Monday, November 27th, 2006

A serious matter has been brought to our attention by guys of the RealGM forums. It seems that the Raptors were robbed of two points when they played against the Hawks on November 24 because of a mistake by the official scorer. Those points could have changed the way the game could have been played […]

The Silver Lining

Sunday, November 26th, 2006

Every cloud has a silver lining. It’s cliche but it’s the best way to describe the theme of this post. There are the winners and there are the losers in the league but even the losing teams have a few bright lights in spite of a so far disappointing performance. Last season, the New York […]

Monta Ellis Proving It Was Wrong To Pass Him Up

Saturday, November 25th, 2006

He’s one of those first round quality talents that slipped all the way to the second round of the draft like Gilbert Arenas or Michael Redd. Unlike them though, Monta Ellis slipped not because of doubt that he could play well but because of the risk of future injury. It was revealed that the […]

MJ Bloopers

Friday, November 24th, 2006

I’ve been browsing Youtube lately looking for stuff here and there and I came across this video of MJ bloopers. Yeah, the greatest NBA player of all time is human too sometimes. I just like to share it with you guys. Enjoy!

Coaches On The Hot Seat

Thursday, November 23rd, 2006

After reading an article by SI’s Chris Mannix about coaches on the hot seat, I thought I’d do my own version. Canning a coach can be a hard decision to make for a team for the simple reason that getting rid of him might jut not be the answer. Sometimes a team does better simply […]

Video: Nate Robinson Blocks Yao Ming

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006

This highlight reel made me jump off my seat. It’s one thing for a small guy to posterize a bigger player and it’s another for him to block a tall guy’s shot. This is Yao Ming we’re talking about. Not only is he 7′6 but he’s also super dominant around the basket. This reminds me […]
