Three wins later and folks are finally starting to listen to the Hawks' enigmatic star, who pounded the Toronto Raptors...

Raptors have one of the best court designs in NBA

I was reading over the various basketball blogs, as I do each morning, and came across some positive Toronto Raptors news. Total Pro Sports had a post on the best 12 court designs in the NBA. As someone who watches a lot of Raptors ball, I knew their court had to be on the list, and it was. Why, well the colors are clean and despite them saying they don’t like the grey claw, I...

Video: Andrea Bargnani’s underground All-Star anthem

Brilliant. We told you Andrea Bargnani is having a career year in Toronto (which, along with the Raptors improved defense, should have people using the words “Dwane Casey” and “coach of the year” in the same sentence). He’s actually defending as well as giving Toronto 22 points a game, and he’s doing it more efficiently…

Andrea Bargnani Power x Pasta Anthem

If I had an All-Star vote, I would never vote for Andrea Bargnani, even if the Mayan calendar gave us more time. Bastards! Yet somehow with the cold hand of the Apocalypse on our shoulder. The Basketball Jones has me rethinking what I would do with my imaginary vote, based on this Kanye West remix of Power and they also have me hungry for Primo pasta at the same time. How diabolical!

NBA Geography Lesson

Fantastic map! However, it brings about two questions. 1. Where are the Toronto Raptors? Can we get The Basketball Jones in here to solve this?  2.  Can we figure out a team for that area in question?  Clearly they have to choose between Portland, Denver and Minnesota right?  If I lived in that area I would pick the Trail Blazers.  Props to Stephen Litel for posting on Facebook.
