We now live in a world where Nate Robinson strikes fear in the hearts of opponents, especially in winning time. Remember his amazing 4th quarter takeover against the Nets? How about his ice-cold dagger shots to slam the door on Miami in Game 1 on Monday night?
The Heat, living with those Game 1 nightmares, are not eager for a repeat performance and are looking to keep Nate in check the best way they know how: Sick LeBron James on him. Read More »
Remember when Stephen Curry‘s unbelievable Game 6 performance against the Nuggets got the NBA Jam experience? It got done again with Nate Robinson‘s epic second half run against Miami earlier this week. And this time, they actually have the smoke and fire. This is perfect. Read More »
This is really getting closer happening isn’t it? Dummies who don’t understad anything about anything are going to bully Derrick Rose into returning to the court before he’s mentally ready to play, aren’t they? Against the Miami Heat, in a wildly intense playoff series after Derrick hasn’t played for more than a year, no less.

The power forward position is without a doubt the most reliable position in the NBA. Most teams are going to struggle without a quality power forward to rely on when the going gets tough.

Joakim Noah was the best player all night, ringing up 24 points, 14 rebounds and six blocks in a must-win Game 7 on the road. But he also got yammed on twice… by the same player.

Game 7 couldn’t have started any worse for Brooklyn. Chicago was getting contributions from just about everyone on the roster, right on down to Daequan Cook and Marquis Teague. Deron Williams looked like the only one who had showed up for the Nets, and he had the highlight of the first half: an absurd one-handed bounce pass that went about 50 feet through Chicago’s entire defense. Gerald Wallace caught it in stride and flushed it home. Read More »
It would be weird if Joakim Noah (or any other player worth his weight) didn’t believe he was going win the big one. Noah though is just a little more brash in the way he goes about things.
