Cuban Tampering with Finley?

The fact that the NBA is even “looking into” comments made by Mark Cuban about Michael Finley on Tuesday is almost kind of crazy when you think about it. Either that, or I am blinded by my undying love of Cubes. Check it out: Cuban said he was rooting for Finley, 34, to win the…Read More

SuperSonics Will Be Run-and-Gun

Remember three years ago when the Sonics won the division with a 52-30 record, going on to lose to the Spurs in the second round of the playoffs? Remember what type of team that was? It was the ultimate run-and-gun offense — with less emphasis on the run, and more emphasis on the gun. At…Read More

How Long Before Portland Wins an NBA Championship?

I’m not one to jump to conclusions or anything, but, let’s jump to a conclusion. Portland will take Greg Oden. They will take the Ohio St. center, and they will ride him to an NBA title. See, Portland’s slim odds of winning the lottery — 5.3% to be exact — meant they weren’t completely horrendous…Read More

What is up with LeBron’s mentality? Why does it feel like something hasn’t clicked? Why did he ease up and make the pass instead of go for the dunk? Why does it come off as if he’s too afraid to make the big mistake? Why does it seem like he’s afraid to harm his ego…Read More

Ed Snider Wants to Change the NBA Draft Lottery System

Back to the way it used to be — one ping pong ball for all teams that failed to make the playoffs. Look, I fully believe the NBA needs to amend the system in order to correct the problem of having teams intentionally tank games at the end of the year to boost their chances…Read More

David Stern Happy to Change the Rule

See, he’s not a dumb man, just a practical one. Not unlike many others, I argued that the NBA needed to change the Leaving the Bench Rule so that in the future, stars like Amare won’t be suspended when they didn’t involve themselves in a fight. One of the worst aspects of the punishment was…Read More

Will Tim Duncan Get Suspended?

I’m a little late getting in on this video, as it’s been floating around since yesterday, thanks to The Big Lead posting it over at FanHouse. But check out the shot of Tim Duncan leaving the bench early in Game 4 against Phoenix. Rules are rules, and while the situation wasn’t as grave as the…Read More

NBA Needs to Change Leaving the Bench Rule

Yesterday I said that Robert Horry’s cheap shot on Steve Nash was a genius move. Why? Because I knew it would result in an automatic one-game suspension for both Amare Stoudemire and Boris Diaw, tilting the balance in favor of San Antonio. Look, the league’s going to take heat for creating a perceived mismatch in…Read More
