Should Ray Allen have received the NBA Finals MVP?

Should Ray Allen have received the NBA Finals MVP?

June 18th, 2008 – Dr. Anklesnap I know, I know, I know, none of the “Beantown Trio” (Garnett no longer wants to be called The Big Three) really care who wins the Finals MVP award, as each of their ultimate goals was to win the NBA Championship. These guys put their individual statistical tracking aside [...]

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.

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 [...]
