LaMarcus Aldridge to San Antonio?

It’s no secret; the nucleus of the San Antonio Spurs is aging. Tim Duncan will be 39 at the end of this season, Manu Ginobili will be 38 in July, and the baby of the bunch, Tony Parker, will be 33 at the end of the season. The waters of the Fountain of Youth can […]

Who should coach the Cleveland Cavaliers?

In a NBA landscape where Flip Saunders has more job titles than wins this season is LeBron James replacing David Blatt as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers really that crazy? It probably is, at least on the surface, but with reports now coming out that the Cavs have “completely abandoned Blatt’s offensive system” and […]

As it slithers, slopes and slides, the black mamba locates and locks onto its prey with precision. Every move — carefully calculated — is in direct conjunction with the fleeting surroundings because the target is the only objective. But what happens after the fact? Once the black mamba catches up to its prey and devours […]

Shawn Marion, The Matrix and the evolution of the small forward position

Cinephiles and frat bros alike recognize the iconic standing of the film, The Matrix. One of the most extravagant, innovative sci-fi films ever made, the Wachowski’s masterpiece has influenced countless films since its release in 1999, pushing the genre forward and opening the door for other blockbuster-with-a-brain films like Inception and The Bourne Series. Two months […]

The Soap Opera Continues in Cleveland

The soap opera continues in Cleveland. On this week’s episode David Blatt comes under criticism for his lack of ability to reach the team, according to ESPN. Could it possibly be the fact that David Blatt is brand new to coaching in the NBA, and only coached the Cavaliers for 30 games? Is it time […]

Video: Aldridge, Ibaka get tangled up and get tossed

Take it easy dudes!

During last night’s Thunder-Blazers game, Blazers power forward LaMarcus Aldridge and Thunder forward Serge Ibaka got tangled up below the rim which resulted in the two grabbing and pulling on each other and getting tossed from the game.

There were no punches thrown but it goes to show you, the West is stacked and with teams jostling for postseason positioning, every game counts and tensions will be high.

At the very least, some fines will be handed down by the league office I would imagine.

Trade Ready: The Lance Stephenson Conundrum

The Charlotte Hornets appear to already be suffering from buyer’s remorse after signing Lance Stephenson to what looked like on the surface, at least, as a team-friendly deal worth $18 million over a span of two years (with Lance hitting the market again after the new TV deals kick in). But as of this moment, […]

How To: Fix The Knicks

Charity is a helluva drug. I might be hopped up on something for wanting to discuss this train wreck a.k.a. the New York Knicks. I thought, “Hey, I could fix the Knicks immediately if given the keys.” And I truly believe that. I could be the Richard Gere to the Knicks’ Julia Roberts. First let’s […]
