Nuggets - Knicks Brawl

Monday, December 18th, 2006

I was out the whole day when the Knicks and the Nuggets had an amazing brawl at Madison Square Garden and it’s too bad I wasn’t able to see it live. Thanks to Youtube though I WAS able to see it
Ten players, including NBA scoring leader Carmelo Anthony, were ejected during an on-court incident […]

Big Big Ben Grabs 27 Boards In Bulls Victory

Saturday, December 16th, 2006

Earlier during the season it seemed to the Bulls that it might have been a mistake to acquire Ben Wallace because of his below average performance. The four time Defensive Player of the Year was struggling to even prove that he’s worth the $60 million the Bulls signed him for. I remember thinking to myself […]

Fan In New Jersey Ejected By Referee

Thursday, December 7th, 2006

If it gives the players any consolation, the NBA referees are on the look out for everyone who loses their cool - even fans! This story from the New York Daily News is a bit hilarious given the current complains about the tighter officiating and zero tolerance so much so that it seems like a […]

T-Mac Leaves Rockets Game With Concussion

Sunday, December 3rd, 2006

Towards the end of the first quarter of the the Rockets-Cavaliers game, star Tracy McGrady left the game for good after getting a mild concussion from taking an elbow from teammate Dikembe Mutombo.
McGrady was running to help Mutombo guard LeBron James, who drove to the basket and got fouled after McGrady went down.

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 […]

‘Cats Upset Spurs

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

This season has been topsy turvy early on and it’s going to be quite exciting if it continues to be so for the rest of the season. In spite of the surprises, the San Antonio Spurs are just doing business as usual being one of the best teams in the league, showing early on […]

Kobe-less Lakers Pull Off Upset Against Suns

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

Before watching the Lakers-Suns game I already wrote off the possibility of Lakers victory from happening and for a valid reason too: no Kobe. No Kwame Brown too, who has emerged as a very solid player in the post especially during the playoffs against the Suns last season. The question in my mind was whether […]

Bulls Upset Miami Heat Ring Ceremony Game

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

The Miami Heat got their championship rings and the home fans were hoping that they’ll see the type of basketball the Heat showed them that won them the championship against the Chicago Bulls. But it seemed like only Dwayne Wade went to work that night as the rest of the team showed rustiness in their […]

West and Chandler Sprain Ankles… That Sucks!

Saturday, October 14th, 2006

(sarcastic voice) This is exactly what the Hornets need as the season is soon about to open. Yes they need it like a hole in the head. Both power forward David West and center Tyson Chandler left the Hornets game against the Orlando Magic because of sprained ankles.
West, New Orleans’ leading scorer and rebounder last […]
