Winners of the 2015 NBA Player Awards

Posted on 22 Jul, 2015, by in Featured, NBA

The NBA players are tired of having just the media and fans making award decisions for them. In the first annual NBPA awards, it was James Harden who was voted as the MVP for the 2014-2015 season, while Stephen Curry won the ‘Most Difficult to Guard’ and ‘Most Clutch Player’ awards. More

Chris Paul Makes For an Unusual Famous Players Union President

Posted on 22 Aug, 2013, by in NBA

It was quite a big surprise to see Chris Paul win the vote for the new president of the NBPA, elevated from his role as a vice president in the union. It’s even more of a surprise to see an NBA star in his prime taking the role and the responsibility of being the voice of the players. More

Kevin Durant Makes Street Ball Interesting While David Stern Gets Angry

Posted on 3 Aug, 2011, by in NBA

Kevin Durant scored 66 point. John Lucas III scores 60 the day after, while Durant scored 41 points. Who cares?!!! With the NFL making a rapid wake from lockout slumber, especially the Eagles signing anything and anyone that costs a bit of money. Baseball? I never really cared much for Baseball, not too much. So while the only good thing regarding the NBA is the owners and players actually meeting (with no love between the two sides), I guess some summer games in New York can actually be regarded as news.

The New and Improved NBA Lockout is Now in Effect

Posted on 1 Jul, 2011, by in NBA

All roads were leading to this point, but not the owners, the players and the league did enough to stop it from happening. For the first time since 1998, the NBA has entered a lockout period and a very unknown future. More

With no Progress Made in Friday Talks, NBA Lockout Seems Inevitable

Posted on 24 Jun, 2011, by in NBA

Numbers being thrown back and forth, cool T-Shirts from the players and the usual political words from David Stern. Bottom line – We don’t have a proposal, no agreement between the players and owners. The NBA Lockout is very near. More

As Owners and Players Present Proposals Hoping to Avoid Lockout, Eyes Turn to Friday

Posted on 22 Jun, 2011, by in NBA

New hope or just glaring shots in the dark, aimed at nothing? Tuesday was the talk on friday – THE deadline. Now, we wait for friday, a day after the 2011 NBA drat, which hasn’t been getting the usual media coverage and talk it usually does. First of all, the talent pool this year isn’t as lucrative. Lockout notions are to blame. Sometimes, the talent isn’t that great. Although we can only be a judge of that in a few years I guess. For now, the future of the 2011-2012 NBA season is at hand. More

The NBA Lockout Draws Nearer as Owners and Players Wait for Tuesday

Posted on 18 Jun, 2011, by in NBA

Despite the NBA owner making the first gesture, taking the issue of the collective guruanteed contracts off the table, the gulf between the players and the owner is wide and filled with hundreds of millions of dollars. Quite a gap to close, huh? Too big to stop the lockout, the first since 1999, from happening? More
