King James

LeBron James – Best Selling NBA Jersey is His, Again

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

Not all the “titles” are going to be taken away from LeBron James this season, at least not the individual one. He isn’t going to win the league’s MVP, Kevin Durant is. But LeBron James is the NBA’s most popular jersey for a second straight season, helping making the Miami Heat the most popular team as well. More

Mavs vs Spurs

NBA Playoffs – Mavs vs Spurs Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

Once one of the best playoff series in the NBA is now a one sided fading rivalry. The San Antonio Spurs with the best record in the league swept the season series with the Dallas Mavericks, so facing off against them in the playoffs isn’t such a bad way to start another hunt for the NBA title.

Warriors vs Clippers

NBA Playoffs – Warriors vs Clippers Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

If there’s one series in these playoffs, or at least the first round, with bad blood taking over the storyline, it’s the one between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers, with Blake Griffin usually in the middle of it all because teams and especially the Warriors love to target him.

Blazers vs Rockets

NBA Playoffs – Blazers vs Rockets Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

If there’s one series that going to set itself apart from the others when it comes to scoring and very little defense, it’s going to be the one between the Houston Rockets and the Portland Trail Blazers. James Harden and Dwight Howard on one end, Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge on the other, while Jeremy Lin might get his chance to shine in a very open kind of style that most likely will be present throughout the series.

Wizards vs Bulls

NBA Playoffs – Wizards vs Bulls Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

For the Washington Wizards, making the playoffs was the goal, and everything else is a bonus. The Chicago Bulls looked like championship contenders, maybe even favorites, when the season began. Then injuries happened, and a trade. But something clicked, and an excellent blend of defense and rebounding, not to mention the weakness of the more popular choices for favorites in the East make them think about a title once more.

Grizzlies vs Thunder

NBA Playoffs – Grizzlies vs Thunder Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

Foes that are used to each other. The Memphis Grizzlies without injuries would have never ended up so low in the Western conference, while the Oklahoma City Thunder are probably still undecided on whether or not they’re better off with or without Russell Westbrook, knowing that despite Kevin Durant being MVP’ish this season, him alone isn’t going to be enough.

Bobcats vs Heat

NBA Playoffs – Bobcats vs Heat Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

Going by name and reputation alone, the Miami Heat facing the Charlotte Bobcats in a playoff series sounds like a sweep waiting to happen, but the NBA champions, even with Dwyane Wade playing next to LeBron James, are more fragile than ever, while the addition of Al Jefferson to the improving Kemba Walker has turned the Bobcats into a very tough team to beat without taking away from their defensive strengths.

Hawks vs Pacers

NBA Playoffs – Hawks vs Pacers Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

The Atlanta Hawks shouldn’t have made the playoffs once Al Horford went down with a season ending injury but played a lot better than people expected out of them. The Indiana Pacers went through an opposite kind of path: From definite title contenders and Paul George looking like an MVP early in the season, to a team no one is quite sure of at this stage, with Roy Hibbert looking more like a scrub than a DPOY he claims to be.

Nets vs Raptors

NBA Playoffs – Nets vs Raptors Series Predictions

Posted on 18 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball

The Toronto Raptors are one of the most surprising stories of the season – a team made for tanking suddenly becoming one of the best in the East. The Brooklyn Nets? It’s hard to decide if this season is a success or not, but eventually they achieved their goal of making the playoffs, not to mention being one of those teams without home court advantage that no one actually wants to play.

Kevin Durant Over LeBron James

Kevin Durant Beats LeBron James – MVP & Changing of the Guard

Posted on 17 Apr, 2014, by in Basketball, Featured

Is it safe to say that Kevin Durant is the best player in the NBA, better than LeBron James? Some wait for an NBA championship ring to be put on Durant’s finger, but when looking specifically at what each player does and not what he wins with his team, James, for the first time over the last five seasons, is inferior to someone.
