Kyrie Irving’s Trade Request

Left and right, you have heard people take each side of the story here. One, the side that is pro-Kyrie Irving. Oh, I understand his trade request. He already has a championship wants to have his own team. Those first few years, he was young and developing into today’s superstar. He’s so talented, arguably the…

NBA Free Agency: Gordon Hayward

I keep telling basketball fans, when it comes to free agency, that I don’t consider Boston to be the favorite to land forward Gordon Hayward. I understand that Brad Stevens coached him at Butler. They will definitely call him and try to ink him to a deal this summer. I don’t think it’s a given…

How Chicago Bulls Can Get Over the Hump

For a minute, let’s take a step back from the eastern conference favorites that represent Cleveland. And possibly, Toronto, the 2nd seed by a sizable margin in the standings. If you follow the east, then you have witnessed the same dead end developments that Chicago runs into. But what if they didn’t have to grind…

Spurs, Must Win Game 3?

Spurs Perspective San Antonio travels to Miami, life would be a whole lot easier if they can steal game 3 tonight. If they were to lose on the road, they would trail 2-1 in the series, with game 4 played in the same building. Of course the Spurs are a complete team, that means there isn’t…

NBA Finals: Game 3

Alright, so the San Antonio Spurs held home court in game 1. Say what you will about the heat in the arena, it obviously had an affect on the game. Miami snagged game 2 by holding the Spurs scoreless in the final two minutes, aside from a meaningless three by Manu Ginobli as time expired.…

NBA Playoff Talk

Well, when the Matt Barnes/Reggie Jackson play happened, I felt that would be a series defining moment. Doc Rivers is at the top of the coaching ranks, along with Greg Popovich of course, and Rivers had the perfect post-game press conference. He stated the same thing, that is could be a series-defining call. What was…

NBA SGs 2014

Only 3 players listed as shooting guards average 20+ points per game: James Harden, DeMar DeRozen, and Goran Dragic (although the Most Improved Player is a point guard, he starts alongside Eric Bledsoe). Here’s another note about Dragic, he’s the only SG ranked in the top 40 at the position, that shot over 50%. Hmm, if…

Die-Hard NBA Wednesday

Whether your team missed the playoffs or got eliminated, appreciate the games and the greatness at hand. In this current time, the past gives you memories, hopefully more good than bad when it comes to your favorite team, but living in the present often gets overlooked. If you prefer the game in the 90’s and…

NBA Goes Awol

Miami is getting similar treatment as the Bulls did during their three-peat season. They were doubted, questioned about their age and how being the hunted again would be too much to match. At this point, a fresh Dwyane Wade is playing at a high level. Chris Bosh is still breaking the back of defenses with…

Miami Heat: Make Life Easier On Yourselves

Miami, to continue success, needs their most unselfish player to be even more unselfish. The “other guys” have to play their roles and contribute, especially with Dwyane Wade’s situation, courtesy of an age and injury combination of some sort. The “King of the Court” has all the accolades, but that “third wheel” needs to get…
