  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/13/11 — Dwight Howard

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/13/11 — Dwight Howard

    With the Miami Heat struggling, the Orlando Magic had the opportunity to move up in the standings, but they haven’t been doing themselves any favors, losing three of their last four heading into yesterday’s game against the Phoenix Suns.  Looking to avoid losing back-to-back games for the second time this month, the Magic needed to […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/30/11 – Marcin Gortat

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/30/11 – Marcin Gortat

    When Marcin Gortat was traded from the Orlando Magic to the Phoenix Suns as part of a six-player swap on December 18, his name was believed to be an afterthought in a deal that included the likes of Vince Carter, Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson.  However, Gortat has not only proven to be an impact […]

    Phoenix Suns Stuntman Dunks Ball, Himself Through Rim (Video)

    It was a rather disappointing opening 90 second for the Phoenix Suns’ stunt team during their performance Wednesday night.  Sure, they may have made their first two baskets, but they followed that up with five consecutive misses!  Things got so bad you could hear the word “awful” coming from the mouths of several people around […]

  • Raptors Fans To Hedo Turkoglu: “You’re Pathetic!” (Video)

    Raptors Fans To Hedo Turkoglu: “You’re Pathetic!” (Video)

    When it comes to pre-season basketball, fans often have little to cheer for.  Although, with the Phoenix Suns visiting Toronto on Sunday, Raptors fans had plenty to cheer against. After making a big push to acquire Hedo Turkoglu as a free agent last off-season, the Turkish forward disappointed Raptors fans throughout the 2009-10 campaign and […]

  • Butt Slaps Are Now Technical Fouls In The NBA (Video)

    Butt Slaps Are Now Technical Fouls In The NBA (Video)

    In an effort to reduce the theatrics that NBA players have become known for on the court, the league has instructed its referees to hand out more technical fouls this season for overt gestures.  I guess they consider ass-slapping to fall under their definition of “overt gestures.” During an exhibition game last night between the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 5/23/10 — Amare Stoudemire

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/23/10 — Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire is considered one of the best big men in the game, but his lack of focus has been roundly criticized for most of his career.  Once in a while though, he silences the critics.  Even though his defense is sorely lacking at times, he can make up for it with an amazing ability […]

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

    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 […]

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

    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 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 […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/22/10 – Jason Richardson

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/22/10 – Jason Richardson

    I’ll have whatever Jason Richardson is having. Whatever that dude ate before the game against the Trailblazers in Portland is what I’m going to eat for every meal for the rest of my life. Richardson went off and had the game of his life as the Suns just obliterated the Blazers 108-89. The Suns led […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 3/28/10 – Amare Stoudemire

    The Stat Line of the Night – 3/28/10 – Amare Stoudemire

    When Amare Stoudemire is focused, he is an unstoppable force in the NBA.  He’s proven it many times before and he proved it again yesterday against the lowly Timberwolves.  Minnesota tried to battle back in the second half, but they were overwhelmed by Phoenix’s power at the forward position. Amare Stoudemire scored 30 points on […]

  • Steve Nash Gives Robin Lopez His Balls Talk (Video)

    Steve Nash Gives Robin Lopez His Balls Talk (Video)

    I’ve always been a big fan of Steve Nash.  I used to play point guard for an AAU team and had long hair just like him.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t good enough for people to catch on to the slight similarities in looks and call me Steve Nash, but I still liked him nonetheless.  My affinity […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 3/3/10 – Amare Stoudemire

    The Stat Line of the Night – 3/3/10 – Amare Stoudemire

    Seems like there have been Amare Stoudemire trade rumors for years and years. But why the Suns would ever want to trade him is a mystery to many fans. Big men that can score from the outside and the post, put the ball on the floor, rebound and run the floor are few and far […]

  • Steve Nash and the Suns Remake ‘Avatar’ (Video)

    Steve Nash and the Suns Remake ‘Avatar’ (Video)

    How do you know when the whole “Avatar” thing is getting a bit out of hand? When MVP point guards start making short movies about it on team flights. Yep, Steve Nash really, really likes “Avatar”. I’m guessing that Robin Lopez doesn’t care much for “Avatar” anymore. Is he the better Lopez? I forget. Of […]
