A great gift for the holidays

In today’s era of nonstop information and updates, being a sports fan is great. No matter what time of day or year it is, you can always find some sort of story or update about whatever sport it is you are interested in. In addition to the major networks and enterprises like ESPN and ABC, […]

Back to Business

If there’s anything that last season taught us, it’s that teamwork matters. Even with the greatest player of our current time in LeBron James, the Heat couldn’t overcome the San Antonio Spurs in last year’s Finals. Better yet, they didn’t really come close, and that’s no slap in the face to the Heat, who had […]

Everybody, meet Taj.

Playing in his 5th season as a Chicago Bull, odds are you already know who Taj Gibson is. He’s been playing meaningful minutes since his first season, when he started nearly the entire year and played well enough to be named to the NBA’s All-Rookie 1st Team. He averaged 9 points and 7 rebounds, played […]

Time to Shine

March Madness remains to be one of the most exciting and relevant sporting events in this country. No matter who you are or where you work, people get invested in it. It’s also because there are thousands of different pools all around us, so taking a $5 or $10 chance to win a bunch of […]

All Heart

When Ashley and I first started dating, she had no idea how much I loved basketball (Chicago Bulls included). She knew, but it wasn’t obvious until April 30, 2009. That night was the debut of Wolverine, which Ashley had wanted to see pretty badly. I don’t have much interest in comic books or the movies […]

You’re only as tough as your tweets

In light of the fiasco that’s occurring within the Miami Dolphins organization, the NBA decided to take a stand before any such thing corrupts one of its own teams. The Minnesota Timberwolves took it a step further and banned all sorts of hazing. Historically, at least in the NBA, rookies have always paid their dues […]

Some hoops to consider, part 1

In a league that includes 30 teams that EACH play 82 games, there is no shortage of information during the course of an NBA season. From the opening tipoff in late October until the final games in June, hoops heads everywhere will watch, listen, text, tweet, email, compare, complain, dissect, analyze, over-analzye, and do anything […]

Let’s get it

Rather than repeat myself, I’ll just leave it at this: the Chicago Bulls have what it takes to win a championship this year. There are a handful of other teams who are also worthy and talented enough to win the coveted prize, but the Bulls have truly taken the basic and proper steps to doing […]

The world is full of Roses

If you really want to get a Derrick Rose jersey to wear (or give me as a really nice gift), don’t worry, you are not alone. According to a recent poll of the NBA’s top-selling jerseys, Rose placed #2 in the world and #2 in the United States, yet is #1 in Europe, China, and Latin […]

We’re all excited!

It’s no surprise that Derrick Rose is ready to play in this upcoming season.  He was nearly ready a few months ago, but now with last season and the summer behind him, he’s not only physically ready, but mentally, too. He obviously continued to work on his shooting, his leg strength, his agility, all of […]

Another reason to love Derrick Rose

  (picture by thesource.com) Up until recently in the NBA, teams were built over a long period of time. Through drafts, trades and free agents, teams were assembled in hopes of one day winning a championship. Sure, the urge to win NOW has always resonated within organizations, but times are different these days. Teams (and […]

Out with the OLD and in with the NEW, please?

  Basketball is a very fast-paced sport. Professionally, compared to other American sports like football and baseball, it may even be the fastest. An NBA game consists of four 12-minute quarters. In each quarter, the time does not stop unless a team scores, the time has run out, or when a referee blows a whistle. […]

He reeeeeeeally loves basketball

It’s already common knowledge that Kevin Durant is one of the best players in the world. His jumpshot. His passing. His free throw ritual. He’s a basketball player to the fullest, making it seem as if he was born to put the ball in the hoop. And if that wasn’t enough, he even chose to […]
