Brandon Roy with a Heroic Performance

Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy is this week’s Lava Tickets Hot Performer of the Week for his inspiring play over the weekend.

Shaq Got Some Fresh New Tattoos

Shaq missed the last six weeks of the regular season after having surgery on his injured thumb. While Shaq was out we heard how he was working hard to get into shape and that he lost 20 pounds.

Chris Webber was saying that one of his friends called Wade’s outfit the Batman car. I couldn’t agree more. Between the bandages under…Read More

Joakim Noah is quickly establishing himself as an All-NBA talker with his game not far behind. Prior to the start of the Bulls/Cavs playoff series, we noted that Joakim Noah wanted to face the top dogs in the Eastern Conference, calling them the enemy. Noah’s feud with LeBron James dated back to their issue in…Read More
