BEST OF MAXIM
"Dude, that was awesome! Also, we still want to trade you."
It’s really strange looking at last night’s NBA Playoffs scores and seeing that the Chicago Bulls have been eliminated. The Bulls were supposed to meet the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, and not another team in the East stood a chance against either of them. It was going to be LeBron James/Dwyane...
Andre Iguodala, often malligned for coming up small in key situations, hit two free throws with 2.2 seconds left on the clock to lead the Sixers to a 79-78 win and a series win.
“I have no idea how we won that game.”
When your coach opens his postgame press conference with this sentence, you know it was a crazy game. The Philadelphia 76ers snatched victory from the hands of defeat...
PHILADELPHIA—There are no asterisks to be placed in the record books. It doesn’t matter that the Chicago Bulls lost two of their starters. The only thing that matters is that the 76ers are advancing to the next round of the playoffs and the Bulls are not.

It may need an asterisk but a number 8 seed knocking off a number 1 seed is always a tremendous accomplishment. The Sixers pulled off that task after beating the Bulls on Thursday and winning their first round series, 4-2.Fittingly, the hero for the Sixers was Andre Iguodala, who has taken a ton of heat over the years for not stepping up in the clutch and hitting the big shots...
Thursday evening, the top-seeded Chicago Bulls were bounced from the playoffs by number eight seed Philadelphia Sixers, only the fifth time in NBA history an 8th seed has defeated a #1. After a disappointing 1-11, 3-point performance, highly paid Bulls forward Carlos Boozer dropped some interesting comments in a post-game interview: “I thought I played [...]
CHICAGO — After going 18-9 without Derrick Rose in the regular season, the Chicago Bulls finally won one in the playoffs.
Now all they have to do is figure out a way to win two more and prove their character once again.

The Chicago Bulls were knocked out of the first round of the playoffs by the Philadelphia 76′ers on Thursday night. Carlos Boozer has been with the Bulls for two seasons now. And in a familiar scenario stemming back to his time with the Jazz and the Cavs, Boozer didn’t show up when he was needed. [...]
With seven seconds to play Thursday night, the Chicago Bulls had a one-point advantage over their hosts the Philadelphia 76ers with the score 78-77, when Bulls center Omer Asik was fouled by Philadelphia center Spencer Hawes; giving him two shots at the line, with a chance to put his team on top by three points and possibly send the series back to Chicago for a seventh game. The...
Bad luck has stalked the Bulls all season. They avoided many of the obstacles in their path to post the league's best record during the regular season, but they were finally dragged down in the playoffs. Playing without guard Derrick Rose and center Joakim Noah, the Bulls saw their season end in exasperating fashion. Leading the 76ers by a point with seven seconds remaining...
It came down to the end of the game. One Philadelphia 76er hit a free throw to end the game and series. That one shot sent the Chicago Bulls home for the rest of the season. Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose are probably devastated right now.
A woman scorned is nothing nice. Especially when that woman is the alleged victim of a famous jock. There are always three sides to every story, his, hers and the truth that usually lies somewhere in between. Today, we hear Josie Harris’ story. Josie is the ex-girlfriend/baby’s mama of Floyd Mayweather jr. She’s the [...]
The Philadelphia 76ers have gone from being one of the darlings of the Eastern Conference to a team clinging to the #8 seed in the East all within a matter of a few months. Earlier on in the season, people were talking about the 76ers being a dark horse to maybe make a run in the playoffs and win the Eastern Conference if the stars aligned for them. But since then, talks of that...
Game 6 is for the series. The Sixers have the opportunity to wrap it at home in the comfort of the Wells Fargo Center, and they must make the most of it, as they certainly don’t want to have to travel back to Chicago riding a two game losing streak. Coach Collins is certainly aware of how difficult it would be do dethrone the East’s number one seed in a decisive game 7 on the...
There were many defining moments in Michael Jordan’s career, and one of the biggest was in Game 5 of the NBA Finals where he battled through the flu with a 103 degree temperature to score 38 point to give the Chicago Bulls a 3-2 lead in the series. There is a new Gatorade commercial out [...]
