Now, The Next Shoe To Drop…Where Does Westbrook End Up?

​You have to think these decisions are related. I tend to think either KD knew Russ is heading out the door and thus moved on or Russ will now leave after KD decided to split. Hard to imagine OKC holding onto him. It might be that the second happiest franchise in all of this next […]

One Big, BIG Difference Between GS And OKC

The demeanor of the two teams and how they function together. Once again last night, when Golden State made their run you could see OKC’s body language go south and the bickering start. You don’t see that stuff in nearly the same way with Golden State and I think it absolutely makes a difference. They can hold each […]

OKC With A Big Opening Statement

That was a big, big win for them. Golden State had it rolling in the 3rd, up double digits, seemingly ready to put them away…no dice. Did it without Durant at his best as well. Should be a hell of a series.

Didn’t Think OKC Could Do This

Now, they’ve got to close it out and against San Antonio, that won’t be easy. Still, you have to like their chances, going home, up 3-2 and seemingly full of confidence after pulling this one off. OKC is deserving of their series lead for sure, but I still don’t think they can push Golden State the way […]

Re: Shoe Companies…How Times Have Changed

Great so far…the book starts with Moses Malone and works its way through all aspects of the prep-to-pro period in the 90s and 00s, starting with Kevin Garnett. Anyway, I’m up through Tracy McGrady and what’s so striking is how EVEN the shoe companies […]

Pistons Learning Some Lessons Tonight

Biggest difference tonight for me was, simply put, the defense. Cleveland moved the ball really well but Detroit just wasn’t as good as they needed to be in terms of staying out of scramble situations and when the Cavs are shooting the way they did tonight, it’s over. I think the Pistons have shown the […]

Pistons Good News/Bad News

Good news is they played really well. Shot fantastically for much of the game, played with tremendous toughness and guts, and never backed down or looked intimidated, a big deal for a team with 4 of 5 starters playing their first playoff game. Bad news is it still wasn’t enough. Even on a day where […]
