How To Fix The NBA Playoffs: A 4-Step Plan

Brandon Jennings

As I watch the 2013-14 NBA season unfold, I find myself facing a sad, sad realization: This year’s playoffs are going to be an all-time atrocity.

Every now and then, Manu Ginobili will time warp back to his Kinder Bologna days (when he was considered to be one of the most explosive athletes in the Euroleague) and put one on somebody. Remember this dunk he put on the Golden State Warriors in the playoffs?

He uncorked a very Manu-esque one on a drive in the first quarter of Game 3 tonight: Read More »
