Thieves In The Temple?

    According to a joint statement from DraftKings and FanDuel: “Nothing is more important” than the “integrity of the games we offer.”
    Right, right.

The Curious Case Of Scott Brooks

Brooks1

    As likeable as Scott Brooks is, he never developed a solid reputation as a great head coach. Sam Presti, who we hold in high regard, had to know this from Brooks’ numerous mistakes in past seasons and several this season. Brooks’ firing comes at a curious time, but even more crucial is who the club will pick as his replacement, particularly with the upcoming free agency of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Golden (State) Time Of Day

It’s been 40 years since these misfits captured an NBA title. I remember it. The old age in me is trying to decide if that’s a good thing or bad?
The fact that Charles Barkley is betting against them is reason enough to pick the Warriors, no?

    West 1st Round
    Warriors over Hornets in 5; Rockets over Mavericks in 6; Spurs over Clippers in 6; and Grizzlies over Blazers in 5.

    East 1st Round
    Hawks over Nets in 4; Cavs over Celtics in 6; Bulls over Bucks in 5; and Raptors over Wizards in 7.

    West Semis
    Warriors over Grizzlies in 6; Rockets over Spurs in 7

    East Semis
    Hawks over Raptors in 6; Cavs over Bulls in 7

    Conference Finals
    Warriors over Rockets in 6; Cavs over Hawks in 5

    Champ

Blue Magic

    Excuses, excuses, excuses…
    I’ve watched fewer college basketball games this season than any I can recall. Like it would make a difference if I did, right?
    Still, when we were fortunate to catch some games, 1 team stood head and shoulders above the rest. The Kentucky Wildcats are long and they can ball, Mr. Obvious said. We wanted to justify picking Arizona to win it all. Or maybe Virginia. Gonzaga is the pick of many, but we just couldn’t go there. Truth be told, we’re kind of rooting for Kentucky to run the table.
    Anyway, this is how we see the greatest sporting spectacle of all time unfolding.
    Final 4: Kentucky, Arizona, Iowa State and Virginia.
    Kentucky defeats Arizona and Virginia beats Iowa State.
    Champ: Kentucky 74, Virginia 71.

Death Takes A Toll In February

Earl-Lloyd

    Earl Lloyd got 4-5 paragraphs in the L.A. Times. Disgusting. But those are the times we live in.
    February has been a cruel month when it comes to deaths of icons and sports figures. Unfortunately, we add Anthony Mason to the list.

Shots Fired

    Add Rudy Gay to Kendrick Perkins’ Christmas list. First, it was Mo Speights of the Warriors, but Gay and Perkins have turned up the heat with each other. Gotta love a good pissing match.

Draft Tier

draft1

    Plenty of NBA clubs have needs. Some more than others. The latter sreams you Laker fans.
    We’re on record as saying they’ll grab Marcus Smart, but the Mitch Kupchak in us says Aaron Gordon, if he’s around. Or will Joel Embiid fall into their lap?

Oh Me Oh My

Chris Paul got a kick out of Laker fans barking “It’s still a Laker town” as the Clippers stuck foot up their ass by 48. If you thought the last beatdown the Clippers put on the Lakers was bad, you should have seen this 1.
