Game 7 and Other Assorted Thoughts

The NBA Finals are going to a decisive Game 7. This is all that a basketball fan could ever hope for. Two evenly-matched teams putting it all on the line, with everything at stake over the course of 48 minutes. That felt dramatic just typing it. I had a chill run through my body. Then [...]

Separated At Birth – With Ghouls

The NBA Playoffs are pretty great right now, in no small part thanks to two point guards who scare the sh*t out of me. My favorite player to watch right now is Rajon Rondo since he has been simply amazing. That said, he kind of reminds me of Zombie Michael Jackson from the Thriller video. [...]

Kobe Bryant NBA 2K11 Commercial

Watch closely. It’s hilarious how Kobe couldn’t even hold in the smirk as the video game version of Michael Jordan blocked Shaq’s shot around the 21 second mark of this clip. That split-second of pettiness definitely took the commercial to another level. All jokes aside, NBA 2K11 looks like it’s the sh*t though! Tweet

Today’s Pookie Award Recipient: Cavs Owner Dan Gilbert

I’m sure you’re all tired of the LeBron James free agency saga. However, I must write about it once more since it gets more ridiculous by the hour. I’m having a hard time figuring out whose the bigger jackass, Lebron, or Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. Right now, I’m leaning towards Dan Gilbert, because his [...]
