Norris Cole Shows Miami Doesn’t Need The Big Three; Andray Blatche’s Revenge

Norris Cole

On a day that will forever be linked with sadness, death and despair, a backup point guard turned in the most heartwarming story on the NBA schedule. It was of little importance within the grand scheme of life, especially after spending hours trained to the television yesterday afternoon, but watching Norris Cole get extended minutes in his hometown and light up the Cavs was fun.

Fins Up: Marshall Henderson Highlights (Featuring Marshall Mathers)

Marshall Henderson highlights

Love him or hate him, Ole Miss junior guard Marshall Henderson is easily one of the most entertaining players in all of basketball, on any level. One of the few downsides to the arrival of the “Southwest Philly Floater is that we have no more Marshall in the NCAA Tournament trying to shoot (and taunt) his Rebels deeper into the Dance.

So we say goodbye to Henderson until next year (assuming he doesn’t declare for the NBA Draft … if he does we hope he has an updated passport). Check out this highlight mix mashed up with clips from Eminem‘s 8 Mile. Fins up: Read More »

New Mexico, move over. You have company. As bad as our brackets were screwed by Harvard on Thursday (and two people in the Dime clan had the Lobos going to at least the Final Four), the Hoyas might’ve done even more damage … Read More »

On this night five years ago, the Boston Celtics ended Houston’s 22-game winning streak. They nearly did it to Miami last night, up 13 with only eight minutes left. But then LeBron James happened … In Miami’s incredible 105-103 win, James (37 points, seven rebounds, 12 assists) scored twice in the last minute – once on an inbounds play and another on a jumper in Jeff Green‘s face – and Boston missed a couple of gimmies before Paul Pierce was short on a wild three in the closing seconds.

A few interesting subplots went down in the NBA last night, headlined by Miami invading Jurassic Park and destroying the Raptors. But it all still took a backseat to March Madness … While many predicted the top four No. 1 seeds correctly (Louisville, Kansas, Gonzaga and Indiana), that still didn’t stop Jay Bilas and the rest of the fellas from questioning them.

Transferring is so commonplace in college basketball some even call the issue an epidemic. NCAA transfers must sit out a year unless they are granted a waiver to play immediately. These are supposed to be granted in situations where a player must play closer to home because of family or other mitigating circumstances. However, now essentially any person looking to transfer can file a petition for a waiver and have a chance to get cleared immediately. Read More »
