Remembering The Dream Team
The first and second Dream Teams were awesome. I remember them getting into the hard court and making the opposing teams look at them with awe. There was a lot of respect of them. They were treated like gods, even when some of them acted humanly rude. Then players from the other national teams got... Sign in to see full entry.

What? Big Stars Can't Win?
No doubt about it, the NBA has made world basketball improve its standards. And the first to notice it is the cream of American basketball -- the NBA stars themselves. Consider the previous Olympic's low standing of the US Dream Team. That shocked me then. And then consider the recent loss to Puerto... Sign in to see full entry.

Del Harris, Yao Ming and Wang
The Chinese National Basketball team is preparing hard for the 2006 Olympics. They have former Laker coach Del Harris to whip up the team for at least a top eight finish. Houston's Yao Ming will be leading the team now that Wang Zhizhi has been officially taken out of the roster. Joining Yao is... Sign in to see full entry.

The Game Plan Was Simple: Deny Them The Ball
The Game Plan was simple: Deny them the ball: don't let their big men get the offensive rebounds, box them out and get those caroms, pressure them for turn overs... It worked for the most part of the game... We could have won, you know. But we can always charge the loss to experience. Sign in to see full entry.

Top Three All-Time NBA Players
Shaquille O'Neal may hit it to the Hall of Fame later on, but he isn't going to be better than Kareem Abdul Jabbar stats wise. Kobe Bryant may have shown some brilliance in his young career, but he will never be as good as Michael Jordan. Larry Bird was great while he was playing with Magic; but... Sign in to see full entry.

Rudy T. To Coach The Lakers; Quo Vadis Shaq?
After the Lakers lost the NBA Championship, management finally decided that the Jackson-Shaq-Kobe Dynasty is over. The latest buzz is that Rudy Tomjanovich might coach the Lakers next season and that Shaq might move over to Dallas in a trade. It normally takes a championship team ten years to regain...

Eating My Words
So the Pistons proved me wrong. But that is not the first time a team I am forecasting against made me eat my words. Remember last year when the Spurs beat the Lakers and ousted them out of the playoffs? That time too the Spurs proved me wrong (especially Ginobili, aughh!). But who would have...

Lakers In Five
I think that the Lakers would sweep the Pistons in Detroit. Here are five reasons why: 1. Rip Hamilton maybe a difficult scorer to defend against because he moves well without the ball, but he gets tired too. He simply folded up in the extension period of Game 2. Larry Brown has excused him by... Sign in to see full entry.

Seeing the Lakers blow an opportunity to put one over an opposing team in their own homecourt really s**cks. And when it happens during the Finals, it s**ks even more! Man... I am going to the gym again. Who knows, Jerry or Mitch may give me a call. Sign in to see full entry.
