Jeremy Lin’s Season Ended Before it Even Began

Posted on 19 Oct, 2017, by in NBA

25 minutes, 18 points, 4 assists. That is the stat line that will remain intact, unchanged, throughout the 2017-2018 NBA season for Jeremy Lin. A patellar tendon rupture means he won’t play another game for the Brooklyn Nets this season. More

NBA Season Preview: Golden State Warriors & Not Enough Teams In Their Way

Posted on 16 Oct, 2017, by in NBA

As the 2017-2018 NBA Season opening night approaches, it’s difficult to find anyone willing to predict a champion other than the Golden State Warriors. Some people will probably go for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Even fewer will mention the Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets. But that’s about it. Four months after the end of a dominant playoff run, hardly anyone sees the upcoming season as a competitive race between a few equally good contenders. More

The Tanking Teams of the 2017-2018 NBA Season

Posted on 6 Oct, 2017, by in NBA

The NBA doesn’t like the word tanking, but the wording isn’t as important. Six teams are heading into this NBA season more concerned about losing and a good draft position than winning and making the playoffs. The Atlanta Hawks, suddenly stripped of all their recent talent; Chicago Bulls who waited too long before going in this direction; New York Knicks, free of Carmelo Anthony; the direction-less Orlando Magic; the super-young and talented Phoenix Suns; and the not too-far-from-competing Indiana Pacers.

Derrick Rose Relying on the Cleveland Cavaliers to Save His Dying NBA Career

Posted on 29 Sep, 2017, by in NBA

18 points per game, 4.4 assists per game, shooting 47.1% from the field. Based on that stat line alone, it would seem Derrick Rose had a pretty good season in 2016-2017, his first and only on the New York Knicks. But those who watched him play and followed him over the course of last season, know it wasn’t a good campaign, nor did Rose enjoy his time in the Big Apple. More
