Spurs take a 1-0 lead as they win their 19th game in a row
Keywords: spurs, thunder, western conference finals
When you look at the Eastern Conference you have an aged Celtics team versus a Miami team full of egos. The Western Conference finals on the other hand are arguably the best basketball teams we will see this year. The Spurs taking on the Thunder is my real idea of the NBA finals, this is the money match up.
The Spurs entered game won having no losses in the postseason. The game was close all the way through, well at least the first half was. In the 3rd quarter the Thunder held the Spurs to just 16 points. It looked as if the game was in the bag. But then the Spurs continued to turn back the clock and dropped 39 points on the Thunder to win the game 1o1-98. The ageless Tim Duncan led the way with 16 points and 11 rebounds.
In the least surprising news of the week, Dwight Howard once again expresses his disdain with coach Van Gundy
Keywords: dwight howard, stan van gundy, orlando magic
The Orlando Magic remain in disarray. Dwight Howard may not return for any type of post season run due to his injury. And Stan Van Gundy may not return next season due to Dwight Howard being, well Dwight Howard. For the second time in as many weeks, Howard has been reported to say he will not play under Van Gundy. And once again, Howard has denied saying anything of the sort.
This one is a head scratcher, it is very possible that the story is fabricated because lets be honest, anyone would believe it. It is also very probable that Dwight is just trying to protect his image, and he is just upset that the info went public. I gotta say no matter what Dwight Howard has said, Stan Van Gundy will not be back in Orlando. And why would he want to be? He has been abused by Howard all season, and undeservedly so.
The Denver Nuggets introduce a comic book based on their team
Keywords: denver nuggets, comic books
The Denver Nuggets have released a mini comic series titled Adventures in Nuggets Nation. It appears we got Danilo Gallinari as a human torch sort of thing, the dude under him is seemingly the Flash with super speed, and the top left looks to have the stretching ability of Mr. Fantastic. Heck, I have no idea, read it for your self right here at the Nuggets website.
Here they are, the brand new Knicks uniforms
Keywords: knicks, jerseys
The New York Knicks have had somewhat of a basic history of jerseys. Their changes over the years have been minimal, a change in color shade, an alter to the fringe. These uniforms do not break from that trend. That being said, they still look damn good.
We go back to the colorful time where Denver didn’t even have a hockey or baseball team
Keywords: jersey of the week, denver nuggets
I am not sure if there has been a more brutal jersey design in the history of the NBA. Nothing says intimidation like a rainbow above the city skyline. Not only are the colors far from scary, but the team name is written entirely in lowercase letters. All that said, these cringe worthy jerseys are also easily one of my favorites. The base colors of blue and yellow work strangely well together, and the mountain tops in white are actually pretty cool. Most people will say they hate this Denver goody from the late 80′s, but personally I think it is awesome in its own way.
Allen Iverson dresses for success in this NBA photo

Ain’t nothin but a G thang baaaaaaby. No idea why I instantly envisioned Snoop Dogg singing that lyric in my head as soon as I saw this picture. Talk about out of place huh? I bet they were like “Alright, AI, we need you to dress sharp for the photoshoot tomorrow. So he went home all pissed off and tucked a white dress shirt into a pair of ridiculously baggy jeans and topped it all off with a blazer that’s 3X too big for him. Showed up the next day sour as hell that he’d be seen in public dressed up all fancy like this.
The Brooklyn Nets are taking the next step to taking over New York
Keywords: brooklyn nets, hello brooklyn
The Nets have a few players they are preparing to feature next season. Taking a page out of the New York Yankees handbook, they are calling these players their “Core Four.” These four players are the newly acquired Joe Johnson, the top 3 point guard Deron Williams, the pesky defender Gerald Wallace, and the up-and-coming big man Brook Lopez. Hello, Brooklyn.
Advertisements will be placed all over the city with the Hello Brooklyn phrase followed by some information about one of the core four players. They are as follows:
“Hello Brooklyn. I’m #8, Deron Williams, three-time NBA All-Star and father of four.”
“Hello Brooklyn, I’m #7, Joe Johnson, six-time NBA All-Star and lifelong Razorback.”
“Hello Brooklyn, I’m #11, Brook Lopez, 20-point scorer and Batman’s biggest fan.”
“Hello Brooklyn, I’m #45, Gerald Wallace, All-NBA Defender and offseason fisherman.”
This is just the beginning of the Nets campaign to take over New York. Soon they will start up a digital social media campaign, so it shouldn’t be too much longer before we see the “Hello Brooklyn” phrase trending on twitter. Things are looking up for the Nets in New York, and they picked the perfect time to strike as fans’ patience with the Knicks is starting to wane.
