Philadelphia 76ers: Maybe less rebuilding will do more

Thinking back, the last time we saw the Philadelphia 76ers in the playoff picture in 2012, they fought to be the No. 8 seed, beat the Bulls in Round 1 after a devastating injury to Derrick Rose, and even pushed the championship-tested Celtics squad to a decisive game 7 in the Conference Semi-Finals. The roster was in respectable form and indicated high potential led by All-Star...

The illogical NBA Finals MVP vote

I often advise my teenage kids on a variety of issues in their lives. They listen … sometimes. They put my advice into practice far less. Anyway, one nugget I often pass along is that they should always think with their brains, not with their emotions. Consider every challenge you meet logically, I tell them. The fairest and best solution will follow. Now if I can only convince...

Sacramento Kings are now the NBA's new laughingstock

It was about two decades ago that the Golden State Warriors started their downward spiral to the cellar of the NBA world. A combination of horrible front office management, disastrous player personnel decisions and a revolving door of head coaches led the team into the abyss of constant struggle. It took 20 years, but the Warriors are back on top as NBA champions. They have also...

Celtics are taking stock in Warriors' winning formula

The Warriors just finished capping off an impressive Finals run despite not winning the draft lottery or nabbing the most illustrious free agent on the market. Golden State was able to build a winning team through patience in the draft and smart offseason moves; to see an organization succeed in such a manner is relatively rare and should encourage Celtics fans. This should lift...

Andre Iguodala Wins NBA Finals MVP After His Selfless, Transformative Season in Golden State

As Bill Russell congratulated Andre Iguodala on winning perhaps the most improbable NBA Finals MVP award in more than 30 years, I recalled Iguodala’s lone season in Denver two years ago, when he was eliminated prematurely by the younger version of a team that, two years later, would transform his career. The youngest iteration of the current Golden State Warriors ended the George...

Golden State Warriors: From laughingstock to NBA Champs

The Golden State Warriors once opted to build their team around Todd Fuller instead of Kobe Bryant. This is a team that drafted (then traded) both Penny Hardaway and Vince Carter.
