The Unsurpassed Warriors Can Only Be Stopped By Injuries

The Warriors opened up their title defense with a 26-point Game 1 win over the Rockets in a rematch of last year’s Western Conference Finals. But the biggest news to come out of that game is the status of reigning MVP Stephen Curry, who played less than 20 minutes after...

Mavericks Are Just About Cooked Now

The Thunder opened the 2016 Playoffs with a resounding 38-point win over the Mavericks. Point guard Russell Westbrook (24 points and 11 assists in 29 minutes) and Durant (23 points in 26 minutes) were productive as usual but Oklahoma City also received a strong performance from power forward Serge Ibaka,...

Choppin’ It Up: Episode 11 – The NBA Conferences

    During last week’s segment of Choppin’ It Up with Adrian Square Garden, It was all Westbrook, Westbrook, Westbrook. The week following that podcast, my articles consisted of even more Westbrook as a I developed somewhat of a series trilogy to the absolute tear the 4 time all-star has...

Kobe In Defense of Lebron James and Russell Westbrook

  So, right when you thought Kobe Bryant was laying-low, rehabbing his shoulder, enjoying his generous income of $20+ million dollars per year, he caused somewhat of a stir on social media. Moreover, instead of defending why he’s so great, or taking a jab at his teammates behavior after a...

MJ Makes Mistake In The Signing Of Lance Stephenson

  I’m assuming six rings on the court doesn’t equate to much off the court. Well, that seems to be exactly the case ever since The G.O.A.T himself, Michael Jordan took to the Charlotte Hornets (Bobcats at the time) front office in 2006 to be the “Managing Member of Basketball...

You See What This Life Is About Chris Copeland?

  With the beloved New York Knicks literally at the very bottom of the standings in the Eastern Conference, without bashing them, it is almost virtually impossible to conjure up some story worth telling on Killing The Breeze. But at last we have Chris Copeland. Copeland, who isn’t even on...
