Wizards-Raptors, Game 1: Paul Pierce Sucks… The Oxygen Out Of The Air Canada Centre

“Paul Pierce sucks!” “Paul Pierce sucks!” A chant thrown at a loathed athlete on the opposing team isn’t automatically or necessarily cruel, but there’s a time and a place for it. Seasoned fans know when to serenade a villain on the visiting team — when the game is well in hand, when a bad day is a confirmed reality, when the totality of the situation is bleak for the...

John Wall’s block on Lowry is nasty, filthy and ego-crushing

The Wizards and Raptors got the 2015 NBA playoffs going and John Wall made his presence known but not on the offensive end, but on the defensive end. Toronto’s Kyle Lowry was going for the layup when out of no where Wall comes flying in to send Lowry’s shot back and into oblivion. http://cdn.streamable.com/video/829a2ef0e5ed11e4a1b52b9b9ccc9f5a.webm My favorite part, seeing...

Re-seeding the NBA Playoffs by Record Only: Would it Work?

There has been a lot of talk about the way the NBA has gone about formatting their playoffs. People have long complained about a lesser conference getting certain teams in just because eight from that part of the league have to. Theoretically, and very often, it means teams from the “stronger” conference have a few teams left out who have better records than a few who get in...

NBA playoffs: Los Angeles Clippers vs. San Antonio Spurs

The basketball gods always seem to bless us with at least one great first round series every year. While there are several intriguing first round matchups, none are more compelling than Los Angeles and San Antonio. For at least the last month, the Clippers and the Spurs have arguably been the best two teams in the league. The Clippers, led by MVP candidate Chris Paul, have won...

Scott Brooks: OKC Should Do What They Want with Coach Regardless of Kevin Durant

Reports are out that state the Oklahoma City Thunder are not willing to publicly commit to head coach Scott Brooks. That tends to come to the surprise of some, while others have wanted Brooks’ head on a stick for a few seasons now. Regardless, by making such an unenthusiastic statement concerning Brooks’ job security, it seems like his time may be over with the team. Or, well...

Top 10 storylines of the 2015 NBA Playoffs

The 1994 Seattle Supersonics. The 2012 Chicago Bulls. The 2007 Dallas Mavericks. These and other “winter champions” are not remembered for the best of reasons. Greatness over 82 games and greatness in an American spring are two very different things. The playoffs define professional basketball legacies and reputations. Winning 11 straight Big 12 titles can buoy the reputation...

We’ll focus on each of the eight first-round series in due time, but as the 2015 NBA Playoffs arrive — the brackets clean and all 16 teams starting at 0-0 — what broader themes emerge?

Watch: Toronto’s James Johnson teaches his kid how to beat box

When we watch NBA games sometimes we forget that these great players are just as human as we are. Toronto Raptors forward James Johnson posted this video to his instagram today and it is a good reminder that these guys aren’t just super heroes on TV but do a lot of the same stuff we do every day. Even though Johnson has had his family issues it’s always nice to see some quality...

Ranking the First Round NBA Playoff series

Hit that Follow button on Twitter @CrossoverNBA Probably the most underrated event in sports starts this weekend: the NBA playoffs.

Washington Wizards: Who The Heck Are They?

Who are the Washington Wizards? Thanks to Paul Pierce questioning if John Wall and Bradley Beal “have what it takes”, it seems to be a rather topical question. Not that Pierce is the lone person to ever question the two players. Still, even despite the messenger having bashed a multitude of people which have made people call in to question his motive, it seems rather fair. Only...

Let The Anthony Davis Love Fest Officially Begin

The New Orleans Pelicans did it. They managed to navigate the brutal Western Conference and earn the eight seed. While that likely means they will just be the first team to lose to Golden State in the playoffs, it is still an accomplishment for a team who is probably a bit ahead of schedule. Not to mention a fan base can’t help but be excited that they get to participate in offseason...

Joey Crawford tumbles and it’s hilarious

Right off the bat, am I saying seeing elderly people fall to the ground and risk injury is a good thing. However seeing the ever-grumpy NBA ref Joey Crawford take a spill in the Toronto-Charlotte game, well, it was hilarious. http://cdn.streamable.com/video/653242e0e3c611e4ae589d7fd9013ce1.webm See he was fine.

Video: Stephen Curry Makes 77-Straight Threes in Practice

We’re talking about practice, no, seriously, we are actually talking about practice. Golden State Warriors’ star Stephen Curry is not only deadly from deep in-game, but he’s just as deadly from 3-point land on the practice floor, too. Watch the video, preferably with your favorite bottle of wine, dim the lights and watch as the greatest shooter in the NBA knocks down 3-pointer...

Heat finally failed this season, but in a way still succeeded

There are plenty of people on this green earth who coach and play sports. For these men and women, the DNA of athletic success is so deeply coded into the human organism that it’s a sin against nature to view any loss as “good.” Thus begins a counterintuitive examination of the most successful “bad season” in the 2015 NBA… especially since the New York Knicks...
