  • Nuggets Over Lakers – JaVale McGee Makes All the Difference

    JaVale McGee didn’t get the start, but he got to play for 28 minutes, making the most of them, finishing with the impressive stat line of 16 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks, helping the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 99-84 and get back into the series, making it 1-2 Lakers.

  • LeBron Loves New York; Durant Destroys Dallas

    LeBron James usually has big games in New York. Maybe it’s the Knicks’ fans, maybe it’s the Knicks themselves. Maybe it’s just occasion of playing in the Madison Square Garden. It wasn’t any different in Game 3, leading the Miami Heat to a 87-70 and a 3-0 lead in the First round series, scoring 32 points.

  • 2012 NBA Playoffs Diary – Day 5

    Tony Parker scored 18 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs in the biggest blowout of the playoffs so far, crushing the Utah Jazz 114-83 in what’s beginning to look like a disappointing end to the surprising Jazz’ season. Maybe they would have been better off not making the postseason at all, bulking up in the draft with a high pick?

  • 2012 NBA Playoffs Diary – Day 4

    Derrick Rose was sorely missed by the Chicago Bulls, who fell at home, suffering their worst loss of the season, as the 76ers came out of Chicago with a 109-92 win. Rajon Rondo on the other hand wasn’t missed in Atlanta, where Paul Pierce took over for the Celtics in a 87-80 win. Lakers – Nuggets? Same ol’ Bryant, in a good way that is.

  • 2012 NBA Playoffs Diary – Day 3

    Amare Stoudemire hasn’t been having a dream season, and it seems his postseason came to a quick end as he injured himself after the game 2 loss against the Miami Heat. The Knicks’ forward punched through the glass holding the fire extinguisher, which should keep him out of the next game at least.

  • 2012 NBA Playoffs Diary – Day 2

    Chris Paul wasn’t having a great, memorable night, but he played well enough while carrying a groin injury to lead the Clippers through one of the franchise’s most incredible playoff wins, coming back from 24 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 99-98, hitting the winning free throws, calm and cold as ice.

  • LeBron James at His Best No Match For Weak Knicks

    LeBron James, at his best, is a level above almost everyone in the NBA. Unstoppable, like he was against the New York Knicks in game 1 of the Heat-Knicks first round playoff series, leading Miami to an easy 100-67 win.

  • 2012 NBA Playoffs Diary – Day 1

    Derrick Rose went down, and the Chicago Bulls saw a big chunk of their title hopes disappear. LeBron James put on a huge show to open the Heat’s title run. Kevin Durant showed just how clutch he is against the stubborn Dallas Mavericks. The Orlando Magic stunned the Indiana Pacers, but nothing seemed to be as impactful as Rose tearing his ACL.

  • Dark Side of the Moon – The NBA No One Wanted to See This Season

    The New Jersey Nets are leaving to Brooklyn, and it doesn’t look like a lot of people are too sad. The NBA’s popularity didn’t take such a hit, maybe not at all, as many expected after the lockout delayed the opening of the 2011-2012 season by almost two months.

  • Charlotte Bobcats, Worst Team With the Worst Owner?

    The Charlotte Bobcats, owned by Michael Jordan, didn’t just have a bad season like almost every other team has once in a year. They had the worst season in NBA history, going 7-59; a win percentage of 10.6% compared to the previous mark of 9-73 (10.97%) the Philadelphia 76ers set during the 1972-1973 season.
