"From High Above The Western Sideline, Good Evening..."

Thus began many a broadcast of the greatest NBA team ever, by perhaps the finest sports announcer to ever live. In his spirit, (though undoubtedly not with his flair) we begin a new electronic chapter of Lakers fandom. Welcome all, I hope the journey is exciting! -GOHH

The 2012 Lakers' Party Is Over

The dust has now settled on the first round of the 2012 Playoffs, and our beloved Los Angeles Lakers have survived a tougher-than-expected challenge by the Denver Nuggets. Lakers fans are rejoicing, and that has me concerned. Perhaps instead of celebrating this (expected) series victory, the Lakers and their fans should be asking themselves whom really was the more difficult first...

Don't Get Confused, Sixers Aren't Good

During The 2012 NBA Playoffs run, the worst possible thing happened for Philadelphia basketball fans: The Sixers won a round. Not long ago, Philadelphia basketball fans were watching one of the most disappointing seasons in recent memory.

A matter of heart

LeBron James is pushing 28 years old. Young by any standards unless you're a gerbil. Kevin Durant is 23 years old. Even some horses live that long. The NBA powers that be continue to claim that James is the best player on the planet. Saw fit to give him another MVP Award. I saw fit to give the MVP to Kevin Durant. Why? Because I'm a LeBron James hater? That's not...

Out through the In Door

As our time on Fox draws to a close (hopefully we still get the NBA finals time) here are some observations that will help me tidy up loose ends. The OKC Thunder should win the NBA finals. They have a better starting 5 and their bench is dominate. We need the Thunder to win. This will take yet another year off the "7 titles" that the Heat star egomaniacs predicted...

Will the real America stand up?

Let us not wrap ourselves in the Flag and pretend that we're the most important sports nation in the world. Soccer is the world's biggest sport by a mile. And truthfully while the USA has gotten the hang of making little kids play soccer on every field in every city you see, we're still not that good at it. The NFL is our biggest pro sport and college football the...

Regardless of risk, Sixers needed Bynum

                         Last season, the 76ers squeezed all they could out of an athletic lineup and decided to make big changes by shipping their lone All-Star, Andre Iguodala in exchange for Andrew Bynum. They switched gears and created a new offensive framework, one that will be designed to win in the playoffs. Most of the 2011's early season success came from...
