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 […]

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 […]

Peja’s 42 Point Game Historic

Monday, November 20th, 2006

42 points. It’s an amazing feat but it doesn’t seem that difficult for NBA players to get to nowadays. Last year, rookie Charlie Villanueva had a 48 point game. We’ve seen guys like Kobe, Iverson, and T-Mac pass 40 points many times. What people marvel at is Kobe’s 81 against the Raptors last year and […]

Monday, November 13th, 2006

The season is still relatively new and so many strange things are happening. The league is kinda topsy-turvy with guys like the Mavericks and the Suns struggling early while guys like the Hawks, Blazers and Jazz are doing much better than expected.

Armstrong The Next Avery?

Sunday, November 12th, 2006

He’s not yet ready to retire from playing basketball yet but it seems that veteran point guard Darell Armstong may have a job waiting for him somewhere when he does. Armstrong wants to be a head coach in the NBA and it does seem he has the knack for it. Will he be the next […]

Borderline Stars part 5

Saturday, November 4th, 2006

Here’s part 5 of my Borderline Stars series.
Jason Richardson
Jason Richardson is a guy who can hurt you with his jumper but even more getting to the basket for that lethal dunk. Sharing the backcourt with Baron Davis with the Warriors, that one-two punch can be very deadly. Has freakish athleticism which he not only uses […]

Robert Hite Likely A Keeper For Heat

Monday, October 30th, 2006

The off season is a time when a team tries to improve through the draft, trades, free agent signings and development of present players. During training camp, many young players that went undrafted are invited to show their stuff and if they’re lucky they could make an NBA team. Such is highly likely the case […]

Borderline Stars part 4

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

It’s been a while since I last posted on my Borderline Stars series but here’s part four.
Richard Jefferson

Known for being an amazing dunker when he first came in the league, Richard Jefferson has proven that he has more than that to his name. Over the years he has really shown an improvement in his jump […]’s New Look

Friday, October 20th, 2006

It’s been up for a few days now but I only decided to write about it now. The official NBA website got a new look. It looks fresher and the design looks cleaner. It seems that all the main features are still there on the main page but they’re not cluttered around the page like […]

Isiah An Idiot For Being Sore At Greg Anthony

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

While Isiah Thomas still has yet to prove this season that he can lead the Knicks out of the disaster that was last season, I think he has shown to New York and to the rest of the world that drafting rookie Renaldo Balkman at number 20 on draft night isn’t that bad at all. […]
