LeBron James Getting Ready for the Miami Heat – Indiana Pacers Hate

Posted on 20 May, 2013, by in NBA

It’s only been a year, but things haven’t simmered down between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat. LeBron James got pissed off hearing a comment Frank Vogel never made, which didn’t disturb some reporters letting James know about it. We’ll probably be hearing plenty of trash talk from the other side soon enough. It’ll be a lot messier than it is out West, on the court and in the media as well. More

The NBA Playoffs Sweep – What Does it Mean?

Posted on 5 May, 2013, by in Featured

Beginning the postseason with a 4-0 sweep should indicate that your team is going all the way, and in 2013, it just might be the case with both the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs looking like the strongest teams in each conference, but more often than not, a team that starts out too hot burns out before the ending, rarely fulfilling that early promise and going all the way to win the NBA title.

Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin Needs to Find Himself Another Team

Posted on 1 May, 2013, by in NBA

There’s nothing wrong with being a bench player who gives about 15-20 minutes a night, but Jeremy Lin wants to be and can be a starting point guard in the NBA, but it’s getting clearer and clearer that playing for the Houston Rockets under Kevin McHale and next to James Harden isn’t that beneficial for him, and probably for the team.

Golden State Warriors – Stephen Curry, NBA Playoffs MVP (So Far)

Posted on 29 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

Hurting ankle isn’t going to stop the Golden State Warriors from doing a little bit of upsetting and continue to be the most pleasant surprise in the NBA playoffs up to this point. He’s getting quite a lot of help from Jarrett Jack (on offense) and Andrew Bogut (on defense,), not to mention the fans inside the ORACLE Arena, but so far, there isn’t a single player in the postseason playing better than him.

San Antonio Spurs – The Final Nail in the Lakers Coffin

Posted on 29 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

It seems like the San Antonio Spurs kept improving as the series went on, while their rivals sank into great despair with their chances slowly being eliminated off the board. Tony Parker and Tim Duncan didn’t need to play for most of the second half as the Los Angeles Lakers failed to show up for the two home games in the series, getting swept in the most humiliating fashion, barely putting up a fight.

Miami Heat – LeBron James Sweeps Without Dwyane Wade

Posted on 29 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

Maybe he was envious of how dominant Kevin Durant was without his #2, so LeBron James went out without Dwyane Wade and didn’t let that really hurt him, leading the Miami Heat to another double digit win and earn their first playoff sweep in the Big Three era. More

Houston Rockets – Jeremy Lin Should Never Have Played in Game 3

Posted on 28 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

For the second straight game, the Houston Rockets lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder by 3 points. Jeremy Lin had another one that he won’t be too proud of, but there’s a good chance that without him the team would have done better – Lin played injured, leaving the game quite early looking quite limited (At best) during the time he did spend on the floor.

NBA Stars Injured & Missing the Playoffs

Posted on 28 Apr, 2013, by in Featured

The recent string of season-ending injuries to NBA stars like Kobe Bryant and Russell Westbrook has just made the list even longer, with Rajon Rondo, David Lee, Danny Granger, Danilo Gallinari and Derrick Rose being the biggest names that should have been in the postseason. More

Oklahoma City Thunder – Kevin Durant Doing it All Alone

Posted on 28 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

He’s never played a playoff game without Russell Westbrook by his side, but Kevin Durant seemed quite comfortable doing everything on his own, despite everyone claiming the Oklahoma City Thunder and their title hopes are now doomed due to the season-ending injury to their All-Star point guard.

Memphis Grizzlies – The Best Big Man Duo in the NBA

Posted on 28 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

Home games bring out the best in most NBA teams, and the Memphis Grizzlies are no different, especially when it comes to their big man duo, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, who have turned the series around by regaining dominance in the paint on both ends the floor, making it an even series once again, hoping that they take this kind of intensity and defensive success back to the road.
