    NBA Finals – Tracy McGrady, a Man Who Doesn’t Truly Belong

    This will probably the last playoff series Tracy McGrady ever participates in, although there’s a good chance he won’t play a single second of basketball for the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals, being one of the more recognizable faces in the finals, yet maybe the only player without a role to play in it.

    NBA Playoffs – Heat vs Spurs Finals Series Predictions

    If this would have happened a year or two ago, all the talk would have been about the Big Three from the Miami Heat – LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh facing off against the Big Three from the San Antonio Spurs – Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. But the 2013 NBA finals are going to be very different by definition, with a whole of a lot more moving parts that will determine the outcome.

    Most Appearances in the NBA Finals

    Two relatively young franchises will meet in the 2013 NBA finals; the Miami Heat, making it for the fourth time in franchise history, and the Spurs, making it for a fifth time, hoping to keep their perfect record.

    Miami Heat & San Antonio Spurs – The Two Teams of the NBA Finals

    The difference between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs?

  • Oklahoma City Thunder, The Next Western Conference Dynasty?

    When the NBA Finals begin on June 12, it’ll be the first time since 1998 that a team not called the Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers or San Antonio Spurs will represent the Western Conference. The Oklahoma City Thunder, it seems, are planning on more than one trip in the foreseeable future.

  • LeBron James Has Done it Before, He Can do it Again

    With his back against the wall, with two games he must win in front of him, LeBron James can come out like a hero, a living legend, or a go down while everybody cheers for the fall of the villain.

  • Dwyane Wade and Heat D Too Much for Dirk Nowitzki to Handle Alone

    Dirk Nowitzki had the chance to send the game into overtime but missed. He had 34 points, but fought alone against the Heat, carried by Wade and Bosh in the final quarter, including the game winner from Bosh, making it 88-86.

  • LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki – Who is More Deserving of the NBA Title?

    Someone is leaving the list. With Derrick Rose joining the elite few who have won MVP’s but never a title (he still has plenty of time to get out of it), Dirk Nowitzki or LeBron James will be getting their names chalked off when the 2011 NBA Finals series is over. But who deserves it more?

  • The Shaquille O’Neal Story, So Far…

    Is this Shaq’s final year? Forget the debate about him tarnishing his legacy by whoring around the league with any team that has a title shot and will have him – It’s better to remember the past, when he was dominant like few ever were. Before O’Neal begins the “Geriatric Park” adventure with the Celtics here’s a brief look at his career with photos and some words.

  • All Alone

    Kobe Bryant needs some help, after his 38 points performance in game 5 of the 2010 Finals didn’t stop the Celtics from winning, 92-86, and taking a 3-2 lead in the series.
