It’s going to make me cry but this is the last installment of “Top 25 Toughest Players to Guard in the NBA. It has been a fun four day ride but, like all good things, it must come to an end. Today I unveil players 5-1. Here we go! (Tear, tear) 5. Chris Paul – Is there anything Paul can’t do? He is a magician with the ball, a fierce competitor, strong as hell, and super-talented. He might not be the biggest, quickest, or most explosive point guard; like Derrick Rose or Russell Westbrook, but this possesses all the intangibles that make him the toughest point guard to guard in the league. He can fend-off the bigger guards with his strength and blow-by them with his quickness. He is a clutch performer and brings a winning attitude everywhere he goes. He will keep coming at you all night long. 4. Dwyane Wade – I think three or four years ago, Wade would have topped my list. Actually, with Wade teaming-up with LeBron James, it might make him tougher to guard. But Wade has some games whe...

Stop Chris Paul, Stop the Clippers

Before this series started I was the only person I spoke to that thought this thing was going to seven games. When asked why I had that opinion I would provide only two words: Chris Paul. I felt like a player as good as Paul simply could not be beaten in just four or five games, and with the weapons he has on this Clippers squad that thought just became stronger in my mind...

The Flawed Partnership of LeBron and Wade

Let’s be clear:  There will be no saving LeBron James from a playoff collapse this time. There’s no excuse to be made.  You could talk about Chris Bosh’s injury being a factor, but that doesn’t change the fact that LeBron played one of his worst games of the year against Indiana last night. 22 points, 22 shots, 7 rebounds and general disinterest.  None of that stat line...

Dwyane Wade fizzles as the Miami Heat lose to Pacers 94-75

INDIANAPOLIS –The Miami Heat can officially press the panic button. In doing so, it would be the best thing for them as the Heat and Coach Erik Spoelstra need to come to a firm understanding of what is about to happen. They are no longer in the zone where they can just cruise over teams with a mere flick of their wrist.

Wade, Spoelstra Clash During Timeout

Dwyane Wade yelled at Erik Spoelstra during a third-quarter timeout of Miami's 94-75 loss to the Pacers.

NBA Playoffs: Why Clippers vs. Spurs Will Be Great

Lakers/Thunder. Good matchup. Revenge. Kobe. Durant. Fisher. Got it. Spurs/Clippers? Seriously? Kings/Clippers/Lakers all having playoff games in the same building for potentially two weeks? The potential of a LA vs. LA Western conference final? People in that climate don’t deserve that type of confusing joy, which is why it won’t happen. The Spurs. All that is calm, cool and...

Choke city in effect in Miami as Pacers choke less for 78-75 victory to even series

Miami, FL -  This game was brutal to watch.  The Pacers blew an 11 point lead only to trail late in the fourth quarter.   Indiana missed 24 out of their 29 shots in the quarter, were outscored by Lebron James and Dwyane Wade in the fourth, yet somehow won this game. Both teams had chances to take the lead with free throws.  Both teams combined for 2-8 in the final minute...

Spurs vs. Clippers series Q&A

With Game 1 of the San Antonio Spurs Western Conference Semifinal matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers just a few hours away, I talked to Peter Kim, a good friend of Project Spurs who writes for The No Look Pass.  1. This isn't the Clippers of old. What makes this current squad such a dangerous team for the Spurs? This current squad can be considered the 'curse breakers...

Video Diary of Miami's forgettable game three

We start with this one here.  This has been the common opinion about Lebron James these days (well years).  Although not much statistical evidence backs this up, a lot of moments like this help the anti-Lebron team's case. Anyways, you never want a rookie showing you up on national tv.  Think Lebron will see this video soon? Ah, Dwyane Wade...
