You know how much NBA I watched last night? Zero. Z-E-R-O. However, I have no problem the next morning cruising Reddit and checking out all the CRAZY dunks from the night before. I picture single guys, living in a terrible apartment, anxiously watching NBA games for CRAZY dunks, some sort of CRAZY high-five or some coach go CRAZY on a ref. Those lonely guys then upload the videos to YouTube, post the videos on Reddit and feel pride. And that’s how Portland Trailblazers Damian Lillard dunking a round ball ends up on BC. Portland won a meaningless December basketball game, 101-93. Someone wake me in late May. Filed under: Basketball

Rick’s Picks Week 7: The weekly Portland Trail Blazers’ all-stars

Top Blazers It’s no simple task to accurately rank this year’s Portland Trail Blazers‘ squad, and their performances over the last week exemplify this statement.

San Antonio possessed (at the time) the best record in the...

Nuggets set record for three-point futility

Someone might want to check the rims at the Rose Garden.  Just 10 days after the Blazers set a dubious NBA record by missing all 20 of their three-point attempts in a win over Toronto, the Nuggets have broken it in the very same building.  On the eve of the apocalypse, Denver went an astonishing 0-22 from beyond the three-point arc, but that’s not all.  Until the 38-second mark...

Karl says he's a 'Spur guy'

Karl has coached his teams Nuggets teams the same way - a high scoring mentality that has them running and defending the paint as best as they can. Gregg Popovich prefers a philosophy of playing to his team's advantages whether...
