Roundtable Talk: First Round of the Playoffs

Keep checking back for our roundtable talk each round of the NBA Playoffs. 1. Who is an underdog in the Eastern Conference? Jonathan: The New York Knicks are my underdog pick for the Eastern conference. For no others reason than I feel like they won’t lose AS bad to the Miami Heat in a 7 game series. While you can’t really take much stock in...

Roundtable Talk: Playoff Series

1. Will the Jazz or Lakers win that 8th spot in the West?  Johnathan: After a very good win against the Spurs on Sunday, the Lakers seem to be in the drivers seat to win the 8th seed.  They control their own destiny and if the Jazz lose either of their two remaining games (against Minnesota and Memphis) then they’re out. Jeff: The Lakers will get...

Tournament Check In

What a wild weekend it was in college hoops. That part we all expected. What we didn’t expect is FGCU making it longer in the tournament than Gonzaga or La Salle going further than New Mexico. Great for those teams, not great for brackets around America. So after the weekend, it is time to catch up with the Sportazine crew’s bracket contest. Heading into...

Race Playing a Role in Attendance?

I’m going to be a little opinionated here, but hey, it happens. My newest gripe is with the Indiana Pacers fans. From what I’ve been hearing, Pacers fans still refuse to go to games because they are under the impression that NBA players are “thugs.” This is a team that is 2nd in the Eastern Conference and a legitimate threat to Miami’s championship run. And...

Roundtable Debate: Road to the Playoffs

1. Will there be a competitor for the Heat in the East? Johnathan- The trendy pick seems to be the Indiana Pacers and their lockdown defense.  We’ll throw out the fact that in their two regular season meetings so far Indiana beat the defending champs both times by double digits (regular season games don’t matter in the playoffs but still.), and also throw out...

Roundtable Talk on the Trade Deadline

1. Bigger surprise? Josh Smith not moving or Dwight Howard not moving? Johnathan- For me the bigger surprise is Josh Smith not being moved.  J-Smoove and Pau Gasol have been at the center of attention for every trade deadline for the past 2 years it seems, but being that Smith was in the final year of his contract you would think Atlanta would’ve like to...

So It Begins…

The first trade of the deadline week is upon us. And no, it isn’t Dwight Howard. With all of the rumors swirling this past month, this trade was not among them. Rockets receive: Thomas Robinson Francisco Garcia Tyler Honeycutt 2nd round pick (from Suns) Kings receive: Patrick Patterson Cole Aldrich Toney Douglas Cash Suns receive: Marcus Morris Not exactly your deadline blockbuster but still...
