Our Condolences, Stanley Johnson & Family

You are a Detroit Piston, now, Stanley – and that means we’re your family, too. I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother and basketball mentor, Karen Taylor. According to The Detroit Free Press, “Taylor played basketball at Jackson State, where she was enshrined into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2009, as well as […]

DeAndre Jordan to Remain a Clipper

Smart move, pimpin’ Jordan shit on his Dallas verbal agreement as Doc Rivers, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and the whole crew descended upon his home in Houston last night to complete the deal. Home is where the heart is… Home is where your ❤ is. #WelcomeHomeDJ — LA Clippers (@LAClippers) July 9, 2015 Paul […]


I really can’t stand today’s sports world where every player you grow to love, often from day one at the draft, eventually leaves either because we’re too stupid to pay them or they get greedy. No matter what, it’s always about money. Tomorrow begins the NBA Free Agency period. DeAndre Jordan, the Clippers center, and […]

Welcome to the Los Angeles Clippers, Branden Dawson!

I was always impressed with Branden Dawson at Michigan State. He was composed, and clearly had the build of an NBA player. Athletic, big, strong – he was a high school All-American who was overlooked at Sparty. Now he will get his chance to shine in the pros with my Los Angeles Clippers! Destiny. Like […]

Heartbreak in Cleveland

We all got our tiny little collective-basketball hearts broken tonight in Cleveland. It wasn’t our fault, but it stings nonetheless. An early Cavalier jump-start showed some promise until the first quarter’s wheels fell off. A lot of nervous energy translated to too many turnovers and scattered defense, even letting 3-point shooters get open. It was 28-15 […]

Fourth Quarter Haunting Cavaliers

It’s been the same old song during the final minutes of each fourth quarter for the Cavaliers. They’re sitting back and watching themselves collapse instead of continuing to attack the rim. Golden State (at home) jumped out to an early 8-2 lead, forcing a David Blatt timeout. Blatt has to maintain that type of discipline […]

Cleveland Blows Golden Opportunity

The atmosphere was euphoric. The Cavaliers jumped out to a 7-0 start and their home crowd roared. Instead of riding that energy to a win, the series is tied going back to Cali. The 1st quarter was out of control. Even though shots fell at a blistering pace, it was not the Eastern Conference rhythm […]

Cavaliers Hang On

Cleveland stormed to the early lead and never looked back, albeit with a bumpy 4th quarter. The Cavs used tough defense out of the gate, forcing a Steve Kerr timeout. Thanks to good close-out D at the end of the first, Cleveland maintained a small edge. LeBron James stated in his postgame his team’s intention […]

Follow-Up to Referees in Golden State

It turns out we were not exaggerating. The NBA released an official report from last night’s game, concluding BOTH missed calls were incorrect of the referees. Source: Upon Further Review: Cleveland Here is the report:
