Notes from TNT’s NBA Coverage – Thursday, February 13, 2014: Since they asked, who is on your NBA Mount Rushmore?

Posted in Blogroll on February 14th, 2014 by Michael Tillery

I’m going  with Wilt Chamberlain (GOAT), Michael Jordan, Julius Erving (Magic Johnson and Larry Bird are the same dude and I can’t discount Doc’s ABA days. Sorry not sorry), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson. I hear y’all saying Bill Russell was a better player than Wilt and honestly, y’all need to step away from the crack pipe. Wilt did it with less HOF players than Russell. That cannot be denied and just because writers throughout history want to dismiss Wilt simply because his prowess and confidence makes them insecure is certainly not Wilt’s fault. Ask any longtime NBA fan and he or she will tell you that Boston vs. Philly was labeled Wilt vs. the Celtics, not Wilt vs Russell. LeBron will certainly replace my childhood hero Dr. J. in my eyes soon enough and be seen and debated as the greatest basketball player of all time despite this idiotic mindset eliminating him from such thought. Because of his size, strength and undeniable talent, he absolutely belongs in any discussion of anything basketball regardless of how fans and media largely see and scrutinize him. He would do the same in any era regardless of how any league and any era views and plays defense. Further, chill with the Kevin Durant has locked up the MVP talk. We’re halfway into the season. He’s shooting 57% despite having the ball in his hands more than most of the league. Durant is putting in 31.5 points and carrying OKC though, but chill on the crown stuff until the season is much more clearer. Deal with it. Who do you have as your Mount Rushmore?

Three things I think I know about basketball

Posted in Blogroll on February 6th, 2014 by Okori Wadsworth

Basketball is heating up in the two precincts that matter. With everything that’s going on, you could be forgiven if the information has created a white noise of sorts — leaving you unable to keep up. It is understandable Andrew Wiggins’s talents blend in with Kobe Bryant’s views on the current NBA and Kevin Durant’s scoring binges, blending into some sort of confusing miasma. Without putting too much emphasis on it, this is why I’m here. Walking you through what’s going on, giving you a point of view you might not have thought of, and to generally provide a bit of levity you’ll need during what is the first truly serious part of the basketball season.

Last night in the NBA: Knicks band together to stun the Heat 102-92

Posted in Blogroll on January 10th, 2014 by Ronald Glover

(SI.CNN)

I’m sure Ray Allen would have rather faced Tim Hardaway Sr’s crossover as opposed to Jr’s pounding.

Let’s face it, things have not exactly gone the New York Knicks way this season, but for some reason good things happen when they face the Miami Heat.

The Knicks thrilled the Madison Square Garden Crowd with their fourth victory over the Heat in their last five regular season games with a 102-92 stunner.

Joe Johnson fades to black over the outstretched arm of OKC’s Serge Ibaka.

Joe Johnson’s time with the Brooklyn Nets has been a lesson in patience. The 2013-14 version of the Nets — who were assembled to challenge to the Miami Heat have struggled coming out of the gate.

Johnson hit his second game-winner of the season as the Nets rallied from a 16-point deficit to defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road 95-93.
