  By Errori da Evitare nella Gestione del Content Marketing Online[CC BY-SA 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons As I watched replays of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and the rest of the Golden State Warriors hoisting that championship trophy a couple of nights ago, an overwhelming part of me was really sad.  The NBA season was now officially over and there won’t be another competitive...

If You’re Not Watching the NBA Playoffs, You’re Missing Out

By Joseph Glorioso Washington, DC, USA (NBA) [CC BY-SA 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0), via Flickr Look I get it… March Madness is amazing.

The Curious State of the Los Angeles Lakers, and Other Thoughts on the NBA

The Los Angeles Lakers were supposed to be bad this year…. With a roster where your second best player is probably Jeremy Lin (no disrespect to LINSANITY) then you have to expect some struggles.  But a 1-6 start?  No one saw that coming.  As of today, the Lakers have the second worst record in the league (the worst being the Philadelphia TANKERS 76ERS at...
