A Look at the post game of Jonas Valanciunas

+

I took a look at the post game of Jonas Valanciunas, his reliance on one move and how this allowed the defense to sit on that one move to force turnovers. I would love any comments or feedback. Thanks!

Chase Budinger: 3 and D?

1

I broke down whether Chase Budinger can be the 3 and D player for the Wolves and included my thoughts on why his 3 point shooting percentages were down last season.

Does Robin Lopez automatically improve Portland's PNR Defense?

I looked at the differences between Portland's PNR defense and how Robin Lopez defended the PNR last season for my new NBA blog. I would love any comments, thoughts or feedback. Thanks!

Offensive Staples: Sixers Baseline Set

+

I am trying out a new series this offseason, that looks at a offensive set for each team and a variation they ran off that set. Obviously this will change this year considering the personnel and coaching change, but I still think its worthy of your time.

Rim Rocker: Valpo's Kevin Van Wijk

What makes Kevin Van Wijk so effective around the rim? The first entry in Mid-Major Madness' Fan Post contest breaks down the Valparaiso star's game inside the blocks frame by frame.

Likely Speights Trade

At first, I thought we were getting Henry and draft picks, which made me love the trade. Depends on when the draft picks are and any protection but I like this trade at the moment

Key to the Game: Arizona forcing tough outside shots

1

One of the keys to the Arizona win last night was the tough defense they played to force contested 3 point shots. I broke down some of those shots.

Wake draws Dayton in the first round. Would be nice to win a game or two in this tournament. I think its possible, even if they win just a few consolation games.

My case for Donovan McNabb to the Hall of Fame

I saw several comments yesterday that show some members do not think McNabb will be elected to the Hall of Fame. That surprised me, as I am of the case that if his career ended today, McNabb is a...

Malcolm Thomas Has Ridiculous Upside

Malcolm Thomas has the tools and athleticism to be a contributor in the NBA but can he show he is a well-rounded basketball player and not just an athlete? Thomas put up a good showing in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, earning first team honors, which no doubt piqued the interest of a few scouts.

The Sixers are not part of the lottery this year but still lots of interesting tidbits in there. Nice work by them.

NBA Draft 2011: Second Round Targets for the Sixers

A breakdown of a few prospects the Sixers should target in the second round of the draft.

Philadelphia (B+) Pro Bowlers: 7 (t-14th) Draftees Active in 2010: 45 (t-5th) Players with 50+ Career AV: 2 (t-17th) Players with 20+ Career AV: 19 (t-9th) Best Pick: DE Trent Cole (5th round, 2005) Worst Pick: DE Jerome McDougle (1st round, 2003) Summary: The Eagles didn’t draft a bona fide star in the first round all decade, but they have had as many steals later in the draft as anybody. They also deserve a lot of credit for covering the running back position in glory for a full decade without a draftee in the top 50 (Brian Westbrook, LeSean McCoy, Correll Buckhalter).

I think this can be an interesting starting point of discussion for last year's Big East. Any thoughts?

There's a beast in the East, and it's not New York. The Philadelphia Union doesn't seem to care about all of the talk about the New York Red Bulls' vaunted attack and sound distribution from the back. It's looking down on its Eastern Conference rivals from atop the standings after a gritty win at an electric PPL Park.

Another charge I considered unfair—or at the very least premature—was that he can’t recruit the kind of players Wake Forest needs to compete in the ACC. My question for that is how in the wide, wide world of sports would anybody know? None of the players he has recruited has arrived yet, much less taken the floor.

Meanwhile, Rutgers is spending $2.00 more than it’s making, which makes it and Wake Forest the only two BCS schools showing a loss in football. Interesting piece about the finances of football. Speaks mainly on the Big East but also touches other conferences.
