2010 Christmas Hamper!

Anyone with access to a television will get something wonderful for Christmas this year with five NBA games scheduled! With all of the trimmings, this Christmas hamper is full of the best that Christmas could offer. Plenty of big names and plenty of meaningful games. Let’s take a look. Game 1: Chicago @ New York This should kick things off nicely…

The Boston Experiment

With Rajon Rondo’s ankle on sick leave and practically every influential big man off the court, the Boston Celtics are presented with a unique experimental predicament. No matter how you look at it, the Celtics are depleted. What will Doc Rivers and the coaching staff come up with to keep winning? Currently sporting a 21-4 record after a spirited win…

Boston Stranglers

The Boston Celtics handed the Miami Heat it’s 4th loss in 9 games last night with a devastating 112-107 victory. I say devastating because the Heat were never in the game and trailed by as much as 20. Ray Allen connected on 7 treys to lead the Celtics with 35 points. Dwyane Wade was held to just 8 points and…

Chicago Bulls – Number 1

Derrick Rose has opened a lot of eyes this season with his stellar play. The 2009 Rookie of the Year is six games in to another significant jump in productivity for the Chicago Bulls. Sure, he’s fouling more so far this season (2.5 per game) but really that is the only stat category one can criticize. This kid is…

Lost Suns 2011

This is not a recipe for success unfortunately and the fans will suffer this season. It will be bitter sweet seeing Steve Nash play this season, as there…

NBA Division Predictions – Pacific

  I’ve covered the first five divisions, and now I’ll tackle the Pacific. Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers will be looking for another Finals appearance and another Championship as the season opens this month. It seems at least the divisional standings will be taken care of with the rest of the Pacific failing to convince me that they…

NBA Division Predictions – Atlantic

Great timing to preview this division as the New Jersey Nets appear to be in the Carmelo Anthony acquisition driver’s seat. Sources at ESPN.com suggest that Melo will join the Nets as early as Monday’s Media Day in a four-team trade involving Denver, Utah and Charlotte. This will force me to make some changes to my Midwest Division Predictions….

NBA Division Predictions – Southwest

The NBA’s Southwest Division, unlike the Subway sauce of the same name is my division of least enjoyment or interest. I have little to no interest in the San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks or Houston Rockets while the Memphis Grizzlies and New Orleans Hornets don’t exactly raise my entertainment roof. But I’m here to preview all of the NBA’s…
