NBA Trade Rumors Part II: Zach Randolph to Pistons?

June 17th, 2008 – Dr. Dime In Part I of our NBA pre-draft trade rumors we discussed a couple of Raptors-Knicks and Raptors-Pistons trade talks.

Game 5 – Lakers alive; Not pretty but a win is a win…

June 16th, 2008 – Dr. Browntorious Well it wasn’t pretty now was it? But a win is still a win, and the season is still alive for the Lakers.

Top Five Wacky Reasons the Lakers had no chance!

Top Five Wacky Reasons the Lakers had no chance!

June 14th, 2008 – Dr. Dime I predicted the Celtics to win this series before it began. To be quite honest I think they have a stronger team dynamic, more heart, and far superior defense.

NBA Finals 2008: Show Ray Allen the Love; Irony for Allen and Garnett

June 13, 2008 – Dr. J-Water When the NBA Finals began I stated that the key to this series was whether or not Kobe Bryant could defend Ray Allen. As Game 4 is now in the books and the Celtics are leading the Lakers 3-1, I guess the answer is no. I received multiple emails [...]

NBA Finals 2008: Game 4 – Lakers have Stunning Collapse; Ray Allen is my MVP!

June 12th, 2008 – Dr. Anklesnap If someone told me this morning that the Los Angeles Lakers would be up by as many as 24 on the Boston Celtics in the first half of Game 4, I would laugh and say “quit playin”! If they then added to that statement that Kobe Bryant at half [...]

NBA Finals 2008: Game 4 Preview – Can Paul Pierce shake Kobe Bryant’s Defense?

June 12, 2008 – Dr. Browntorious If any of you caught Wednesday night’s game, you would have seen something you’ve seen all year long, but didn’t see in Game 1 or 2 of this series. For one, you had good old Jack sitting in his usual courtside seats cheering away. Second, you saw the fans [...]

NBA Finals 2008: Game 3 – Lakers make adjustments, Kobe attacks the rim

  June 10th, 2008 – Dr. Dime Kobe Bryant and company need to attack the rim more. Check. Kobe came out to start this game with one intention in mind. Go hard to the rim, using his athleticism, and absolutely punish the opposition. And it worked. Kobe closed the game with 18 free throw attempts, [...]

NBA Finals 2008: Game 3 Preview – ‘There’s No Place like Home’

June 10th, 2008 – Dr. Browntorious The Staples Center will be an overwhelmingly welcome sight for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. Everyone knows “there’s no place like home,” which is probably even truer during this epic playoff run than in most past years. During the 2008 NBA Playoffs we have seen the home team win [...]
