Cavaliers Are Still Alive In Playoff Series Despite 32-point Embarrassment

Posted by RichieZ23 on May 12, 2010

Alright, just when did winning three games in a best-of-seven series win a team the series?  Anyone?  The last time I checked, you still have to win four games to advance, and the Boston Celtics have won just three so far.  Yet it seems to be a foregone conclusion to many people that the series is over, Lebron is bolting for New York, and he’s suddenly deserving of the MVP.

Get real people.

Boston Now Boasts Big Four: Celtics Will Go as Far as Rondo Takes Them

Posted by RichieZ23 on May 10, 2010

The past season was a historic one for Rajon Rondo.

In his fourth season, Rondo eclipsed career-highs in what seemed like every statistical category.  His 36.6 minutes, 50-percent from the field, 9.8 assists, 2.3 steals, and 13.7 points were all career bests for the former Kentucky Wildcat.

Even more impressive for Rondo was he broke the Celtics franchise-record for assists in a season, as his 794 assists surpassed the 60-year mark previously held by Hall-of-Famer Bob Cousy, who dropped 715 dimes back during the 1959-60 season.

Note to NBA: Start Paying Attention to the Orlando Magic — They’re For Real

Posted by RichieZ23 on May 4, 2010

Are you kidding me?  How are people and the national media not seeing this?  All we keep hearing about as far as title contention is Kobe in Los Angeles, Lebron’s elbow and how healthy he is, and the Celtics and the experience they have.

You don’t hear a thing about the Orlando Magic yet.  And it’s an absolute joke.  Even tonight when they destroyed Atlanta 114-71, it was because Atlanta was tired and Orlando had rest.  Yes that is a reason, but it is also because Orlando is the vastly superior team.

The NBA is an individual driven sport, I think we all realize that.  From Wilt to Kareem, from Jordan to Kobe, the NBA markets individual athletes as their main attraction.  But how are the Orlando Magic not amongst the favorites to win the ‘Ship this year?

Because Dwight Howard couldn’t stay out of foul trouble in the first round?  Because they don’t have Lebron?  Because they don’t have Kobe?

Steve Nash Proves He — And the Suns — Are Still Amongst NBA Elite

Posted by RichieZ23 on May 3, 2010

You could hear the talk dwindling.

No more was Steve Nash’s name mentioned along with the other top-tier point guards across the league.  Gone were the glory days of his two-time MVP run when he dropped dimes at will and led ultra high-tempo Suns as the highest scoring team in the league.  He was getting too old.

In fact, sports writers even suggested it was D’Antoni’s scheme that made Nash what he is.  It wasn’t Nash’s court-vision, smarts, and unorthodox layups that won games, it was merely Mike D’Antoni’s scheme that made Nash what he is.  The best part in the slap-in-the-face article to Nash is below:
