Every year, the Super Bowl is played and it is one of the heaviest gambled events of the year. However, not everyone bets on who will win or if the teams will combine to get the over. Forget those bets. Have some fun and bet the Prop Bets. In fact, I dare you. Continue reading
It’s been a week since St. Louis (and the Baseball World) lost Stan “the Man” Musial. I told Russ when I found out that I wasn’t surprised (his health had been going south for a while) but I was in shock. A week later, and it’s still a little surreal.
Russ did a good job already looking at what Stan meant to baseball. I’m going to tell everyone what he meant to St. Louis.
One team is 17-24 and sinking quicker than the Titanic, the other is thriving and owns the second best record in the league, a half game behind the Oklahoma City Thunder at 32-10. Both teams play in the Los Angeles in the same building (The Staples center) so if I were to tell you that the Lakers are 17-24 and the Clippers aer 32-10 would you believe it? Of course not.
With training camps opening and the preseason right around the corner, it’s almost NBA season once again. Time for my top 8 teams in each conference:
1) Miami: The defending NBA champs hardly need an introduction. LeBron James is back fresh off of a gold medal winning summer for Team USA and Dwayne Wade as well as Chris Bosh are getting healthy for the start of the season. Continue reading
It’s FINALLY almost here. Super Bowl XLVI. Pats vs Giants. Brady vs Eli. Hey, did you guys know this is a rematch of a Super Bowl from a few years ago? Don’t answer that. Hype? You betcha. Sure, I’m an NBA guy; but there was no way the resident douchebag, Masshole, Boston fan at 85percentsports wasn’t going to comment on this game in some manner. Duh.
Shaking my head.
I love Kevin Garnett. I loved him as a player before he was traded to the Celtics. I respected him as a man crying because of his loyalty to a losing franchise. I’ve always respected the passion and the intensity that make him the player that he is. But when is it enough? When does the passion and intensity become more of a burden than an advantage? Maybe I’m wearing green goggles and I just don’t realize that we’ve already passed that point with Garnett. Continue reading
This is bad. Very bad. Let’s sit back and think about what just happened last night for a few minutes logically. The National Basketball Association officially ratified a new collective bargaining agreement between the league owners and players. Then, three teams in the National Basketball Association agreed to a trade. Hours later, that trade was vetoed by the league’s dictator, David Stern. Continue reading
Guard – Boston Celtics – 6’3″, 180 lbs
Delonte has a mid-range jump shot a lot of guards would kill for. He attacks the basketball well and plays outstanding defense for his size. Probably one of the best combo guards in the leauge, can run an offense well or play off the ball. Every team needs players like Delonte West. He’s a hard-worker that can fill multiple roles. Continue reading
When I watched the NBA Finals wind down to a satisfying end on Sunday night, I was obviously filled with more thoughts than I could process. But one thing stood out above everything else.
I turned to one of my friends who I was watching with and said, “Dirk Nowitzki looks like he could drop dead right now and die happy.” Continue reading
Today was a normal day for me. Nothing out of the ordinary at all, really. I went through my daily routine, mulling over game one of the Finals and thinking about the state of the series. I figured that nothing particularly extraordinary would happen on the NBA’s off day.
Then, while I was at a gym, I saw the following on a TV: “Shaq announces he will retire”. My first thought was, “really?” My second thought was, “really?” My third, fourth, fifth and sixth thoughts were, “really?”
That’s right. Shaquille O’Neal–the guy who I speculated would play til he died–called it quits today. Continue reading
