Shaq Is One Vindictive Baby

I suppose this is where I’m supposed to laugh along with everybody else at how funny Shaq’s rap video making fun of Kobe was. Or I can settle for seeing through Shaq whose four rings and $20+ million salary per season isn’t enough. Instead, he has to celebrate over the failure of others to feel…Read More

T-Wolves Set on O.J. Mayo?

I love the way drafts work. Anything an executive says is either the truth, or a fabrication in order to throw everyone off the scent. Such a fun mind game. But after the Timberwolves worked out O.J. Mayo, it was hard to take GM Jim Stack’s comments as anything other than telling. Simply put, seems…Read More

Kobe’s Done Playing GM with Lakers

If you remember, and it’s pretty hard to forget, last summer was Kobe’s Armageddon. There was the flip-flopping and questioning whether he even wanted to be a Laker. But then Andrew Bynum started putting up double-doubles, and the tension was eased. And once Pau Gasol was acquired, Kobe was campaigning for Mitch Kupchak to be…Read More

Lakers Already Making Moves, Odom?

Funny the way things work. Two weeks ago, the Lakers were the toast of the NBA, a near cinch to win the title. Then, in a matter of games, they have become a so-called mess. We’ve already decided here that the Lakers would be back and that this is just the beginning of a new…Read More

Ray Allen Never Had to Take Last Shot

I remember what a big deal ESPN, and others, had made of the issue once Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen were acquired to team alongside Paul Pierce. If it ever came down to a last second shot, which of the three players would take it? In an ESPN interview during the season, KG and Pierce…Read More

Kevin Garnett Hits on Michele Tafoya

I’ve already made it pretty clear what I think (or don’t think) of sideline reporters. It’s not necessarily them that I don’t like, it’s just that I don’t like their role. The don’t serve a purpose. Why did we need Tafoya interrupting a moment where Kevin Garnett should be celebrating with his teammates and family?…Read More

All of a Sudden Doc Rivers Is a Genius

I love how this stuff works sometimes. Last year Doc Rivers was the guy who deserved to be canned after his team did the nosedive into last place like they had a two-ton anchor attached to them. You even had guys like Ryan Gomes all but admitting they were tanking. Many people were calling for…Read More

Ralph Nader Wants Changes in the NBA, Wants to Create Fan Union

Ralph Nader was well ahead of the curve, jumping all over the officiating for Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals in 2002 — the series brought into question by Tim Donaghy (least we suspect). He sent a letter to David Stern following that game and wasn’t satisfied with Stern’s response. And as you could…Read More
