Will Iverson Be The Answer In Denver?

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

So Allen Iverson got traded to the Denver Nuggets just recently and it’s timely too since the Nuggets will need a scoring punch since Melo and JR Smith, the Nuggets’ top scorers are out due to suspensions. But when everything normalizes the team will be faced with a few issues that need to be addressed.

Is it just me or the box scores of the games are gone from the game results? If it’s there I can’t find it anywhere. changed this part of their website design and i personally think it has changed for the worse. I want to see the stats of each player on […]

Players Association File Charges Against NBA For New Ball, Tight Officiating

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

This season feels different not only because it’s the first season wherein no rookie drafted was a high school player (because of the new collective bargaining agreement rules) but also because of two changes: The new NBA ball and the “no tolerance” policy in officiating. The players feel offended that Commissioner David Stern implemented both […]

Mavericks On 12-0 Winning Streak!

Saturday, December 2nd, 2006

The first month of the NBA season is over and things are starting to normailze a bit after some crazy occurrences. One of them was that the Mavericks were winless after four games, which was uncharacteristic of the team that became champs in the Western Conference. Some teams, like players, need some momentum to get […]

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 […]

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 […]

2006-2007 Season: Early Surprises!

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

It’s nearly a week since the new season has started and already there’s so much to talk about. I’m going to talk about expectations being surpassed early on. I’m not talking about Jason Kidd’s triple double last week or Brandon Roy’s and Rudy Gay’s early performance so far. we know they’re good so it’s not […]

Celtics’ Winless Record Not Worthy Tribute To Red

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

I know it’s still to early to say anything definitive about this season since it just started last week. It’s just that this season is special for the Boston Celtics because it’s the season they dedicated to their patriarch and legendary coach Red Auerbach. With the moves that GM Danny Ainge has made in recent […]

Dunleavy Jr. Is Playing What?!!

Tuesday, October 10th, 2006

I was reading this article about Frenchman Mickael Pietrus of the Golden State Warriors being the new starting small forward of the team. It’s quite a surprise because Pietrus failed to impress once again last season, with Mike Dunleavy Jr. playing better (but not necessarily impressive) than him.
But enough about Pietrus. My real shock is […]

Marcus Williams Is Learning From The Best

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

When UConn point guard Marcus Williams was slipping on draft day I felt a bit sorry for him until I found out he was drafted by the Nets at 22. Right away I thought what a mentor he’ll have in Jason Kidd. He will learn from the best!
Indeed, he is learning. As training camp is […]
