Flopping is a part of sports. It’s certainly a part of basketball. Nevertheless, commissioner David Stern is wanting to take it out of the game. Sure, it isn’t the greatest thing to watch, but why not try to implement the most basic rule of traveling? Why don’t we start by making that simple rule count towards [...]

The Dallas Mavericks Get First Pre-Season “W” With Win Over Alba-Berlin

So I’m a huge Dallas Mavericks fan and an even bigger Dirk Nowitzki fan, but this game was one of the sloppiest games I have seen them play in years. However in saying that, you have to take into consideration that just in the starting lineup alone in the game, was only 2 players from the previous season, Dirk and Shawn Marion and they had just made a very long trip across the...

Dallas Mavericks hang out in Berlin

The Dallas Mavericks kicked off their ’12-’13 preseason abroad. The team had it’s first game in Berlin, Germany – lots of shout outs to Dirk Nowitzki. Of course a perk of these international jaunts – outside of the obvious continued expansion of the NBA as a global brand – is the time the team spends [...]

Jazz Day Video: 'The Mailman'

Before there was Tim Duncan, Blake Griffin, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kevin Garnett, there was Karl Malone. For 18 years he poured his heart and soul for the Utah Jazz and became an unstoppable force in the paint. He, along with John Stockton, made the Jazz a perennial playoff team and even guided Utah to the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998. And though he never won an NBA title, he is considered...

It’s always about the money. And that’s fine, because...

Thunder Day Video: This one is for Seattle

The way the Thunder became the Thunder will always be a blemish on the NBA. The alleged lies, and alleged deception. The focal players Clay Bennett, David Stern, and Howard Shultz. The city of Seattle, Sonics fans, and much more will be a source of agony for a city whose team was ripped from their hearts. It was the Sonics who drafted Kevin Durant, won the franchise an NBA...

The NBA Super Friends: The War On Balance

Between NHL labor problems, NFL safety and money issues, and MLB’s own highly talked about monetary balance issues, it would seem that the NBA has a great chance to close the gap on the NFL as America’s favorite sport. Their past labor problems are not as bad as the NHL’s, NBA Commissioner David Stern essentially absorbed the blame, rightfully or not, and a season of superstars...
