reviewed Oklahoma City Thunder. March 30, 2011
Oklahoma City Thunder
It's impossible for me to think about the Oklahoma City Thunder and not think about the Seattle Supersonics but after seeing Thunder games on television, I really wanted to go to one someday.   …
reviewed The Breaks of the Game. April 18, 2011
The Breaks of the Game
After reading Bill Simmons' The Book of Basketball, I always made it a point to read this book and I'm glad I did. The teams and players in this book are before my time but I've always been interested …
reviewed New York Knicks. June 01, 2012
New York Knicks
It's odd to think of the always-ubiquitous New York team as the underdogs. After all, being a team representing the largest city in the United States and the financial capital of the world doesn't bring …
reviewed Chicago Bulls. June 03, 2012
Derrick Rose
There are very few teams anywhere whose history can be so evenly split down the middle. I can name the Chicago Bulls and their citymate baseball team, the Cubs, but that's just off the top of my head. …
reviewed Miami Heat. June 08, 2012
Miami Heat
Yes, it's a lot of fun to hate LeBron James right now, and over the last couple of years, it does kind of feel like the right thing to do. But objectively, let's make a quick rundown of a few things: …
reviewed Oklahoma City Thunder. June 11, 2012
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been in existence for four years, and they've just won their fourth-ever Conference Championship. They'll be commuting to Miami to play against the Heat. It's an amazing …
reviewed Boston Celtics. June 26, 2012
Boston Celtics
The Boston Celtics receive a designation in basketball as the White Peoples' Team which really isn't fair to them. It's true that a lot of their greatest players have been white: From the …
reviewed Toronto Raptors. July 14, 2012
Toronto Raptors
I keep wondering why the city of Toronto, Ontario has such a largely unsuccessful professional sports largesse. There's those 13 Stanley Cup titles won by the NHL's Maple Leafs, of course, but they're …
reviewed Memphis Grizzlies. July 17, 2012
Memphis Grizzlies
I've long been a firm believer in the idea that a professional sports team should have a name that has some relevance to its geographical region or metropolitan culture. Therefore, in NBA terms, I'm one …
reviewed Charlotte Bobcats. July 23, 2012
Charlotte Bobcats
Oh, the stigma of being the NBA's latest team. Bad record after bad record, the fight for fans in a market which already surrendered its first team to New Orleans, the growing pains of ownership and management. …
reviewed Los Angeles Clippers. August 18, 2012
Los Angeles Clippers
Put two teams who play in the same sport and league in this country, and you'll inevitably see a case of Mets Syndrome. One of those teams will be obviously better than the other, and the media and populace …
reviewed New Orleans Hornets. August 21, 2012
New Orleans Hornets
With a team like this, I'm tempted to scream about how the New Orleans Hornets are a bastardization of one of the NBA's all-time great teams. New Orleans, after all, did have a team of its own way back …
reviewed Orlando Magic. August 26, 2012
Orlando Magic
Founded in 1989, the Orlando Magic look like they should have a history dating back to at least the 70's. They've never won a title, at least not yet. But here's a quick list of great NBA players: Shaquille …
reviewed Los Angeles Lakers. August 28, 2012
Los Angeles Lakers
Among the major professional sports leagues (plus the NHL) in the United States, the NBA stands out in one very minor way. In the others, there's one team which is peerless in the fact that it's running …
reviewed Minnesota Timberwolves. September 03, 2012
Minnesota Timberwolves
The history of the Minnesota Timberwolves can be divvied up into three very distinct eras: Before Kevin Garnett, Kevin Garnett, and after Kevin Garnett. In layman's terms, these eras can also be called …
reviewed Golden State Warriors. September 14, 2012
Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors are nothing if not an example of just how unfair fandom in the NBA can really be for some people. By all accounts, this is a team the deserves to be ranked among the greatest, …
reviewed Portland Trail Blazers. September 22, 2012
Portland Trail Blazers
Whodda thunk it? Once you get north of California, the basketball-crazed west coast has but one team representing it. That, of course, wasn't always the case. The pacific northwest once had three teams …
reviewed Houston Rockets. September 26, 2012
Houston Rockets
The Houston Rockets matter. People might not realize it because Houston isn't one of the traditional glamor markets, but they've mattered quite a bit. For one of the earlier expansion teams, they've had …
reviewed Dallas Mavericks. September 27, 2012
Dallas Mavericks
We all know the classic Texas upbringing: A rigorous regimen of football, football, and more football. And there's some justification to that: The state has a handful of some of the greatest college football …
reviewed Utah Jazz. September 27, 2012
Utah Jazz
The Utah Jazz. Tell me now, is this a name that makes ANY sense?! Yeah, these guys are right up there with the Los Angeles Lakers in terms of names that are kept for some poor reason after a move that …
reviewed Detroit Pistons. September 29, 2012
Detroit Pistons
The original NBL has a giant smorgasbord of failed small-town teams and big city squads which just didn't catch on. It's no wonder so few of them still exist in the league today. Teams failed constantly …
reviewed Atlanta Hawks. October 06, 2012
Atlanta Hawks
I've written quite a bit in this project so far about the humble beginnings of the NBA, when even the highest level of professional basketball was a hard blue collar sport, catering to the ruffian dayworkers …
reviewed San Antonio Spurs. October 07, 2012
San Antonio Spurs
The poor folks in San Antonio are currently undergoing a low self-esteem issue. Here is that storied Texas city, home of the Alamo and a highly rated riverwalk with a well-known and acclaimed hispanic …
reviewed Denver Nuggets. October 10, 2012
Denver Nuggets
Lark? What's a Lark? Oh, apparently it's the state bird of Colorado. It really amazes me, some of the names people can come up with for sports teams. As far as geographic or territorial significance goes …
reviewed Phoenix Suns. October 13, 2012
Phoenix Suns
I've written tons about the NBA being an unfair league to certain teams. Lord knows I'm not blaming the league system here. In a lot of cases, it merely stems from monumentally bad luck. The league was …
