Improving the NBA

In case you missed some previous podcast episodes, here are some NBA tournaments that I have been proposing for some time now. No, this isn’t about the rules like traveling or flagrant fouls, but a much bigger picture. The NBA is interested in growing more globally, among other endeavors. Let me preface the NBA Draft Lottery Tournament…

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 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: Playoff Parity

Playoff Parity The salary cap probably isn’t structured to keep a team together, hence the OKC Thunder trading James Harden last offseason, but it has increased parity around the league. Sure, many discussed the decision by the Thunder was between two standout guards, Harden and Russell Westbrook. In hindsight, you notice how the two players…

State of the New Orleans Hornets

If you’re talking about a team making the biggest improvement as far as records are concerned, then you can throw the Hornets into that conversation after a 21-45 season. With the number one pick in the draft as most of you know, they selected Kentucky forward Anthony Davis. The kid is versatile offensively with the…

State of the Chicago Bulls

We have to grade the Chicago Bulls on a championship level, and I don’t think they have what it takes to beat Miami, OKC, or other elite teams to win it all. They didn’t make that impact or splash, but it’s still the offseason and we don’t know the full status of injured MVP Derrick Rose. His…
