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 […]

Bobcats A Playoff Team?

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

When the Charlotte Bpbcats entered the league back in 2004 as the newest NBA expansion team, we all saw something special. Emeka Okafor won the Rookie of the Year award that year and they finished with a more than respectable record that surpassed everyone’s expectations of them considering they were a new team in their […]

Pau Gasol Will Be Missed

Thursday, September 7th, 2006

Pau Gasol was not at all missed by the Spanish team during the FIBA World Championships but his absence will affect his NBA team, the Memphis Grizzlies. For years, the Memphis Grizzlies have struggled to get to the playoffs and when they finally did, they could never get past the first round - that’s with […]

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 […]

Nets Roster Almost Complete

Monday, August 14th, 2006

The offseason has been pretty good to the Nets and their bench has been upgraded and will be complete as soon as the free agents they had agreements with actually sign the contract. The drafting of Marcus Williams was a pleasant surprise and getting his UConn teammate Josh Boone a pick later was just sweet. […]

Jack Happy He’s Starting

Tuesday, August 1st, 2006

The Portland Trailblazers were recently known for having some sort of logjam at the point guard position, especially a few years ago when they still had Nick Van Exel and Damon Stoudamire to go with Sebastian Telfair and Jarrett Jack. Suddenly, the Blazers find themselves kinda lacking in point guards with Van Exel and Stoudamire […]

NBA Draft 2006 - It Was Crazy!

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

Since I’m from the Philippines, I had to wake up before 7:00 am just to be ready to watch the 2006 NBA Draft live. I just have to say that it was well worth the trouble of waking up much much earlier than I normally do. It’s great to see so many teams making anywhere […]

Iverson Trade Rumors

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

Ever since the Sixers stopped making the playoffs the Allen Iverson trade rumors have always been rampantly circulating, especially just before the trade deadline period and the offseason. I’ve heard a lot in the past such as an Iverson for Vince Carter deal when Vince was still a Raptor. Now there’s a new one that […]

Expect No Overhaul For Pistons

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

One thing I get pissed about is when NBA teams make a major overhaul in the offseason even if the team clearly had some success. That’s why when the rumors about the Pistons putting coach Flip Saunders in the hot seat or when the rumors about Ben Wallace on the trading block came out […]

Larry Brown Out?

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

If I were a Knicks fan, this should be one of the best things I could hear all season long. Let’s face it. Larry Brown led the Knicks to the worst record the franchise has seen. That’s not a record a Hall of Fame coach should ever ever have in his resume. Why give him […]
