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 …

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 …

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 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. …

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 …

Shaq Uncut: My Story
   When I told someone I was reading Shaquille O'Neal's new autobiography they laughed and said: "Why? His life has been an open book." I had to chuckle. While it is true there …

Splattered Blood
The chief of internal security for New England's professional basketball team, the Highlanders, is found dead in his office, with a suicide note and conflicting evidence of foul play.  Refusing …

Loose Balls
No one can accuse Jayson Williams of not holding himself to a high standard about his book, Loose Balls. Admittedly I’m probably the wrong person to interpret Williams’s claim that Loose Balls …

Drazen Petrovic
I was young but I remember watching Drazen play. He didn't get much playing time when the Pistons and Blazers were battling each other in the finals but I remember the Nets were finally relevant again …

Out of Bounds: Inside the NBA's Culture of Rape,
   I always felt like as observers of a sport, we tend to like and dislike the wrong people. This book takes a look at some of the things that players do behind the scenes and how so many things …

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 …

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.   …

2011 NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four
For the first time ever in men's Division 1 NCAA basketball championships, there are no #1 or #2 seeds remaining in the Final Four. The remaining teams are:    No 3: Connecticut  No …

Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How
I've always been a fan of ideas that are contrary to popular belief. There are so many things that we assume are true and the way we perceive things are not necessarily how they actually are. Accumulating …

FreeDarko Presents: The Undisputed Guide to Pro
It's tough to follow up a history of basketball book after Bill Simmons' 'Book of Basketball' but the guys over at FreeDarko have done an outstanding job. After hearing nothing but positive …

Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How
All of the major professional sports have been played for well over a century. This has led to a long and hallowed tradition of how things are done. Unfortunately, in many cases the traditional way of …

ESPN SportsNation On The Clippers
ESPN's SportsNation asked the following question:      Do you consider the Clippers to be a respectable NBA team?      Here's the result as of this posting:   …

Donald Sterling
   I don't even know where to begin. On one hand, I'm thankful for Donald Sterling, he was the one who brought the team to Los Angeles. On the other hand, I despise him because he's …
reviewed Marcus Liberty. December 21, 2010
Marcus Liberty
 I'm sure everyone in Chicago around the mid to late 80's remembers the 6'8 Marcus Liberty extremely well. Unfortunately, most NBA fans outside of Denver and Detroit probably do not. …

Blake Griffin
   I really can't believe that as a Clipper fan (perhaps the only one here on Lunch) that I haven't written a review on Blake Griffin. He's tearing down rims on a nightly basis and …

Let Me Tell You a Story: A Lifetime in the Game
I felt extremely fortunate that I was able to find this at a used book store for only 1 dollar. I have always admired Red Auerbach for what he was able to accomplish and what he has done for the game …

I spend a great deal of my free time reading books about the NBA and I had previously read Red Auerbach's book. I consider Red Auerbach as the greatest NBA coach but many would disagree considering …

NBA
So I started reading Terry Pluto's 1995 NBA book titled Falling From Grace, and there's a chapter called, "Why Johnny Can't Shoot" which talks about why NBA players in the mid-90's …

I was excited to read this book once I heard about it, even though it is nearly 700 pages but I enjoyed every page of it. I found myself being unable to put the book down as I learned about some of the …
reviewed Phil Jackson. September 13, 2010
   I know the headline might sound absurd but I don't believe that more championships = better coach or player. I would have to give to give that title to the late Red Auerbach because not …
