    Magic Fan, Official Exchange Words, Play Hot Potato With Basketball

    Frustrations are clearly boiling over for both the Orlando Magic and their fans.  After losing Game 1 to the Boston Celtics on Sunday, things were not looking good at halftime during Game 2 last night at Amway Arena.  With the Magic trailing by two at the break, the fans seated behind the scorers’ table were […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/17/10 – Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant’s health has been called into question entering the Western Conference Finals in the NBA Playoffs.  It appears that the question has been answered: No problem.  Sporting a yellow knee brace in last night’s game, Bryant was able to play through the pain in a dominant performance that led his Lakers to a 128-107 […]

    With the Cleveland Cavaliers having been eliminated from the playoffs by the Boston Celtics, you can expect the talks surrounding LeBron James’ future to begin heating up.  Cities like Chicago, New York and New Jersey will surely hear their names thrown around the most, but how about the possibility of him staying with the Cavs?

    Suns Players Try To Duplicate Nash’s Performance, Shoot With One Eye

    The Phoenix Sun’s Steve Nash has had quite the career, winning two NBA MVP awards, three Lionel Conacher Awards (Canadian Male Athlete of the Year), and being named to seven NBA All-Star games.  Heading into the post-season, there were only two things that have eluded the 36-year-old point guard: a series victory over the San […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/11/10 – Paul Pierce

    With the best-of-seven series between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers tied at 2-2, Game 5 Tuesday night was critical for both teams.  The last thing LeBron James and the Cavs wanted was to be traveling to Boston for game six with their playoff lives on the line, but Paul Pierce’s performance would help […]

    Celtics Brian Scalabrine Gets Stiffed (Video)

    For athletes like Scott Tolzien and Brian Scalabrine, their presence on and around the field of play is rarely something that receives any sort of attention, but every once in a while they do become the topic of conversation.  Unfortunately, when that does happen, it is often the result of someone else having forgotten they […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/5/10 – Amare Stoudemire

    The Suns were looking to maintain home court advantage against the Spurs as game 2 went down in Phoenix Wednesday night. This is no easy task as the Spurs have owned the Suns in playoff basketball for years. So Amare Stoudemire stepped in and basically gave the basketball equivalent of saying “My house”. Stoudemire ripped […]

    Kobe Bryant has become a household name in the sporting world, and it has therefore come as little surprise to see his face plastered all over magazines and television sets everywhere.  Even his very own MVPuppet has used his name to gain recognition across the country.

    2 Wild Deer Break Into Wisconsin Bar During Bucks Game (Videos)

    So two deer walk into a bar… Seriously, two deer walked into a bar in during game 7 of the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks series. Here’s the bad news: neither the real deer nor the basketball Bucks fared very well in their battles. One of the deer was all bloodied up and both were […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/29/10 – Manu Ginobili

    This one was almost over before it started. I’m talking about game 6 between the Spurs and Mavericks, although if I was talking about the whole series that would work too. The Spurs opened up a huge 22-8 lead at the end of the first quarter and ended up with a 97-87 victory. They took […]

  • The Most Questionable Foul Call In The NBA Playoffs?

    The Most Questionable Foul Call In The NBA Playoffs?

    When it comes to officiating in the sport of basketball, there is no shortage of subjectivity involved.  Much like a holding penalty in football, or a strike in baseball, a foul can be called during almost any play on the hard court (which makes point-shaving all the more likely).  It all depends on whether the […]

    Luol Deng Dances Around LeBron For An Incredible Basket

    Usually it is LeBron James making the highlight reel plays at the expense of the opposition’s dignity, but last night the tables were turned, thanks to the Chicago Bulls’ Luol Deng.  After having his hands full guarding LeBron through the first two games of their best-of-seven series with the Cavs, it was Deng’s turn to […]

    Charles Barkley Loves Blondes, Hates “Assholes” (Video)

    The power of Charles Barkley is really quite amazing.  Sure, the guy has his problems, which include a terrible golf swing and a knack for drinking and driving, but the former NBA All-Star and Hall of Famer has single-handedly made TNT’s basketball coverage “Must See TV.” His on-air hi-jinks always seem to provide viewers with […]

    With the second seed wrapped up in the Eastern Conference, the Orlando Magic have been afforded the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the last few weeks of the regular season.  Although they have not slowed down, stringing together five straight wins heading into the post-season, they do appear to be a lot more relaxed.  […]
