OK, the headline’s a lie. For all you Illuminati conspiracy theorists, Tupac, or 2Pac or simply ‘Pac, fell off this mortal coil 18 years ago this past September. Sorry guys. But this a Tupac impersonator was at TD Garden on Wednesday night and he got an impromptu shout-out from the arena’s address announcer when “Calfornia Love” started up — ironically when you realize how un-LA an environment the ‘Pac impersonator inhabited: a Celtics game at the Garden.

TAG: Golden State Warriors
As an NBA fan, there is nothing worse than watching a boring basketball game. Every few years we get lucky to witness a team that displays an absurd amount of showmanship on the court; a current example is “The Lob City” Clippers. In a sport that is played at a fast pace, we have seen teams throughout the years elevating the excitement on the court. I counted down the most exciting teams in NBA history. Read More »
The NBA’s Western Conference is stacked with teams that have a chance to make a deep playoff run, but only one team can represent the West in the NBA Finals. The NCAA Tournament is right around the corner for all the college fans, but the NBA might have it’s own version with four teams fighting for the final three playoff spots in the West. Read More »
The Golden State Warriors did something only a few have been able to do this season: win on the Pacers’ home-court. The Dubs didn’t run away with a victory on Tuesday night, they won in dramatic fashion.
With 10.9 ticks left in the fourth quarter, the Warriors and the Pacers were all tied up at 96. Klay Thompson had the hot hand in the fourth, so it was to no one’s surprise that the ball was in his hands with the game on the line. After receiving the pass from Andre Iguodala, Thompson backed down George Hill and used his size to turn around and let go a beautiful fadeaway jumper. The ball splashed through the net with 0.6 seconds remaining. Read More »
In Mark Jackson‘s 17-year pro career he shot 33 percent from three-point range. Now he’s the coach of the Golden State Warriors, a team that features sharp-shooting Stephen Curry in their backcourt. After a recent practice, the Dubs coach and superstar squared of in a three-point shooting contest. The results will shock you. Read More »
Through the last 40 games, the Raptors are 26-14, which gives pause to any fans that thought Masai Ujiri should be shedding players left and right in an attempt to tank towards this summers stacked 2014 Draft. But DeMar DeRozan is an All-Star and Kyle Lowry should have been an All-Star. DeRozan even out-gunned the human shooting torch known as Stephen Curry on Sunday when Golden State arrived north of the border. Read More »
Friday night Stephen Curry returned to Madison Square Garden for the first time since he dropped 54 on the Knicks last season. Under Armour even created a personal edition Anatomix Spawn “The Zone” for the occasion. Steph largely lived up to the hype as the Dubs crushed a disintegrating Knicks team that’s looking further and further back from a playoff berth. Read More »
While the players receive all of the attention on the court, it is the general managers who construct the teams off the court, in hopes of leading their organizations to great success. Without these executives, it is difficult to fathom how professional franchises would properly function.
At the end of each season, the NBA gives out the Executive of the Year award, which is voted on by executives of the league’s 30 teams. The season is now closer to completion than it is to its start, and the race this year is certainly tight. Read More »
What is it about the Rockets and Warriors? We guess it’s their high octane offenses that make both these teams so aesthetically pleasing for League Pass subscribers and casual fans alike. But last night’s late game on the back end of a TNT doubleheader was anything but a scoring bonanza. Still, while the 102-99 Dubs win in overtime featured some shoddy shooting, it also gave us three huge plays that made staying up late totally worth this morning’s sleep-deprived crankiness.

The trade deadline truly brings out the worst in desperate franchises looking to make a hasty deal. The main facilitator behind huge deals made at the deadline is the fact that the main player the deal is surrounding may leave during free agency, leaving the team he plays for with nothing other than an open roster spot. Rather than risk that, teams will instead pull the trigger and trade their star player for what usually turns out to be a couple of draft picks, aging veterans or unproven players. Read More »
