The San Antonio Spurs: Then and Now

I had the distinct pleasure of living in San Antonio, Texas (it could be a displeasure depending on how you feel about hot weather, and the Alamo) in 1999 which just so happened to coincide with the San Antonio Spurs winning their first NBA championship in franchise history.  The feeling of living in a city that has just won a major sports championship is...

Dwight Howard and Legacies

Fresh off being eliminated from the playoffs by the Spurs in 4 games everything has been quite on the Dwight Howard front.   As a Lakers fan watching from afar I saw the progression that the team made as the season went along.  They stopped playing as individuals and more like a team that had some idea of how to play together.  During the...

Your 2013 Los Angeles Clippers

It’s still hard to fathom this sometimes, but the Los Angeles Clippers actually have EXPECTATIONS.  Ever since Chris Paul arrived in LA in 2011 the Clippers went from a perennial doormat, laughing stock, and the Lakers neglected, adopted little brothers to a top team in the Western Conference with championship aspirations. This is a team that won 56 games this year (which included an...

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.
