Tom Thibodeau–Rookie Coach of the Year?

Tom Thibodeau–Rookie Coach of the Year?

In 1998, head coach Phil Jackson, His Airness Michael Jordan, and the Chicago Bulls won their third-consecutive NBA Championship—the team’s 6th title in 8 seasons as Chicago became the center of the basketball universe during the 1990’s.  But then, seemingly all at once, everything changed shortly after the ’98 season, and departures the likes of Phil Jackson, Jordan, Rodman, and Pippen left gaping holes in the Bulls’ locker room.

2011 March Madness: Cinderellas in Waiting

Ok, no, Cinderella’s fabled glass slipper did not fit perfectly on the foot of the Butler Bulldogs in last year’s March Madness.  But what head coach Brad Stevens and Butler did prove capable of in 2010 was to turn the myth of a true, college basketball, Cinderella Story into a reality.  Butler came within inches of defeating one of college basketball’s Powerhouses in the National Championship, and showed that Cinderellas more

Legendary College Basketball Coaches, Revisited

Legendary College Basketball Coaches, Revisited

Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke Blue Devils, once said: “I don’t look at myself as a basketball coach.  I look at myself as a leader who happens to coach basketball.”  Now that March Madness is nearly upon us, it seems appropriate to revisit and honor some of college basketball’s greatest “leaders”, who happened to also coach basketball. John Wooden Known as the “Wizard of Westwood”, John Wooden served more

Changing of the Guards: Ray Allen Makes History

There will never be a universally recognized Greatest Shooter Ever in the NBA.  But as long as there is an NBA, there will be a debate over who the league’s greatest, smoothest, most natural shooters are.  And one name more than all but a few others will weigh-in heavily on that debate. Ray Allen. On Thursday night, at home against the Lakers, Ray Allen further separated himself from the rest more

Kevin Durant and the Rolling Thunder

Kevin Durant and the Rolling Thunder

With little argument, it can be said that Kevin Durant is having a stand-out season.  Last night, case in point, KD dropped 43 points on only 19 shots, went 10 of 11 from the free-throw line, had 10 rebounds, and also 5 steals in a win at home against CP3 and the New Orleans Hornets.  But, that’s not even the best game that Durant logged during last week alone.

Getting Technical about Technicals

Even before this season began back in October, it was understood that the NBA would be cracking down on the outbursts of players mid-game by issuing technical fouls to all offending persons, and also by then suspending a player once he gets T’ed up a certain number of times. As expected, and as reported by the L.A. Times last week, technical fouls in the NBA are up 34% from this more

DeJuan That Got Away

DeJuan That Got Away

Things really change as time goes by in the NBA. San Antonio Spurs power forward, DeJuan Blair, has been living proof of that ever since being drafted in the second round of the 2009 NBA draft. Blair was a great prospect coming out of the University of Pittsburg following a great showing in his Final NCAA tournament and was expected to go midway through the first round. Unfortunately a nagging more

The Syracuse Orange will try to keep their perfect record intact Tuesday when they take on the Providence Friars. While the Orange have been dominant on the court, they’ve been miserable on NCAA basketball betting odds.

Basketball Betting: Iverson to Turkey?

Last Tuesday, Allen Iverson’s personal manager Gary Moore told “Anyone that can appreciate the game can appreciate the talents of Allen Iverson.”  But now it seems that the people that are the most appreciative of Iverson’s talents are in…Istanbul.  That’s right.  Turkish basketball team Besiktas Cola Turka is The Question and Allen Iverson, as he always has been, is The Answer.  The reason for Moore’s statement about the appreciation more
