How the Clippers Can Be Better than the Lakers

The Clippers still have a better roster than the Lakers, but after a historic collapse to a scrappy Denver team, it’s time to overreact! With Doc Rivers out, the first step is adding a new coach. My top 3 choices would be Ty Lue, Mike D’Antoni, or Adrian Griffin. In...

The Boston Celtics Bounce Back in Game 5

POOR SHOOTING NIGHT The Boston Celtics have kept things interesting now that they’ve won game five. The Heat started off in the drivers seat this game and took a lead in the first quarter. They were up by 12 at one point and had some Boston fans worried. Goran Dragic...

Pat Riley has done it again. the tide is rising in the east.

Besides Jerry West no one has put together more winning teams for different franchises than Pat Riley. He has done it again this year with the Miami Heat. At the beginning of the season no one expected the Heat to be playing in the Eastern Conference Finals and be...

It’s About the 3 Stupid

It’s one thing to let a team sneak in under the buzzer, but to avoid letting it sneak into your head can be the real problem. The Celtics played game 3 to win it, and they had it won. Toronto’s chances of winning that game with half a second remaining were slim, at...
