Larry Drew Trivia and Cheapskate Dan G.

When LeBron leaves town something bad is going to happen. History says so. When LeBron left Cleveland in 2010 all the Cavaliers did was win 19 games. When LeBron left Miami in 2014, Chris Bosh began getting blood clots in his leg and it ended his career. LeBron left Cleveland this past summer and they…

Rick Pitino the Outsider

Humility is the true key to success. Successful people lose their way at times. They often embrace and overindulge from the fruits of success. Humility halts this arrogance and self-indulging trap. (Rick Pitino) When he was coach of the Boston Celtics, Rick Pitino was frustrated on many levels after a loss to the Toronto Raptors…

Ty Lue’s Boss Move

The easiest way to get fired is to clash with your boss. It doesn’t matter what industry you are in, that is the sure way to get pushed out the door. But what if you want to get fired? What if you see it’s the Titanic and want to jump ship before the whole thing…

Lonzo’s Adult Game

Today is Lonzo Ball’s 21st birthday. Legally he can drink in the state of California.  As a reward for his play in the absence of Rajon Rondo, Luke Walton is keeping Ball as the Lakers starting point guard and sending Rondo to the bench.

OKC Hasn’t Seen This Since SuperSonic Days

Is anyone surprised the Lakers are 0-3? No. How about the 0-3 Kevin Love Cavaliers? Without LeBron, of course not. And the 0-3 Bulls? Expected. But the OKC Thunder who are supposed to be contenders with Paul George and the newly acquired Westbrook backup Dennis Schroder, the Thunder with Steven Adams up front and the…

Where Is Kevin?

The last sighting of Kevin Love the magnificent was April 14th 2014. In a road game that was to be the last of the year, the opponent was the Golden State Warriors, a team still in development. The Warriors would not win the title that year and instead would lose in the first round in…

There Will Be Blood. Sort of. Not Really.

True to predictions, the Lakers were grossly undisciplined in a moment that mattered but the optics were all wrong. Michael Beasley and Lance Stephenson were not agitators but bystanders (Beasley), or peacemakers (Stephenson). It was left to the immature, the veteran and the aggrieved to make LeBron James home debut a farce that will undoubtedly…

Not Much Has Changed For Rockets Melo

At first sight, Rockets Melo doesn’t look that much different than Thunder Melo or Knicks Melo. He waits at the perimeter. He rarely dribbles to the rim. He is an afterthought, recognizable by his headband and the same tired game that he has owned these last few Carmelo purgatory years. Blame us. Expecting different results when…

Earning LeBron’s Trust

What we knew in July is still true. LeBron James is surrounded by a bunch of average shooters. The only way for him to have success this season is for him to be off ball. But to be off ball he has to give up the rock. To give up the rock, he has to…
