So How About Them Clippers?

Honestly, I don’t know what the Clippers are doing. Right now, they’re 8-25… and even this was worse than I imagined when I predicted they wouldn’t make the postseason because of the weird mix of talent that they have. It’s…

NBA Scattered Thoughts For Jan. 5, 2009

Happy Monday, passers. Well, no, it’s not exactly a Happy Monday for me considering I woke up with a sore throat. But, hey, I guess it’s time for a blog post. Orlando, Cleveland, Dallas, and Boston all lost yesterday in…

Star Of The Show

So, yeah, Happy New Year to everyone. There were no games scheduled yesterday and, quite frankly, my mind is still all over the place that’s not NBA-related. Nevertheless, I just didn’t feel right not making a post today. There ARE…

We Like Obscure NBA Players: Rich King

Okay, this whole “making fun of OBSCURE NBA PLAYERS” thing really started with my friend, Beerman. We were chillin’ at his place when he showed us his old NBA Hoops, SkyBox, Fleer, and Upper Deck cards. And then he came…

So About Those Detroit Pistons…

I might be jinxing these guys but… …has anyone noticed that the Detroit Pistons have been playing well for the last couple of weeks? I don’t get to watch them often but I caught the last part of their game…

State Of The Lakers

All right. L.A.’s favorite team is 25-5. I love it when the fans panic when the team loses. “Oh, we need to trade Odom!” “Oh, we need to put Ariza in the starting line-up.” And I ask, “Why tinker?” For…

Christmas Ballin’

I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas/Holiday! What did I do? I spent the day with the tube on, of course. I tuned to all five games on Christmas Day for the most part… and I particularly want to touch…

We Like Obscure NBA Players: Keith Closs

Here’s my Christmas gift to some of you guys! Well, it’s hard to gauge how “obscure” he really is. My friend, Leo, had this to say. LEO: “Yeah, so I’m from Baldwin Park (California). And now… I think we’re known…

Scattered Thoughts: L.A. Style

I went to the Clippers game with Peter, Bran, and Allen. We know how that ended up. Toronto killed the Clippers, 97-75. Zach Randolph got hurt early in the fourth quarter that killed any hopes of a Clipper rally. They…

D’Antoni Is The Best Coach Today?

I just had an NBA discussion with an old friend. He is convinced about one thing. Mike D’Antoni is the best coach in the NBA today. My friend felt he turned Steve Nash into a superstar. My friend MIGHT have…

If You Don’t Know, Now You Know

Last night’s Portland/Phoenix game was probably the best one I had watched all season. I think Phoenix is returning to their run-and-gun ways, which is best for their personnel, anyway. And Portland has been ahead of schedule when it comes…

Trade The Booze

Carlos Boozer said that he’s going to opt out at the end of this season. Uh-oh. The last time he opted out, there were reports that he would stay with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. But Utah gave him…

We Like Obscure NBA Players: Mike Penberthy

We were watching a Laker game that one time back in 2001… REY-REY: “Man. Who is this guy?” FRIEND: “I don’t know. But he went to… THE MASTERS.” FRIEND 2: “I don’t know where THE MASTERS is but it sounds…

My Favorite NBA Dunk Contest Dunk

All right. Some friends and I brought up the dunk contest in the last few weeks. If someone asked me what my favorite dunk of all-time was in a dunk contest… I can easily respond with this. Yes, it’s in…

Being An NBA Coach Is Not A Safe Job

So far, what do we got here? OK city got rid of P.J. Carlesimo. No surprise there… but Eric Murphy, I mean, Scott Brooks isn’t doing much better so far. Washington fired Eddie Jordan. I didn’t like the move but…
