How to fix the NBA (Part II, Sour Grapes edition)

One of the most annoying aspects of the NBA playoff system is the fact that a team in one conference can fail to make the playoffs, despite having a record allowing it to have home court advantage...

How to fix the NBA (part I)

TwinnerA had an interesting complaint in the Suns vs Grizz thread, about how players on our team are getting paid full wack, despite not making it to the playoffs, and sucking in general.

What once was, and will never be again.

Truehoop has a link to an interesting article on basketball-reference.com, talking about how the Suns performed, statistically, during the Nash era. Specifically, it rejects the notion that the...

How to fix the franchise (part I)

Disappointing finish to the season, to basically give up without a fight.  Don't know what to say about that, except Amare isn't the only problem on this team. Despite the fact that this was a...

The Sonics: Why David Stern deserves to be vigorously sodomized with a rusty wire brush.

Of course, I'm not suggesting anybody should actually do this, but the Sonics move is a complete disgrace, and I can't think of a more suitable punishment for big Dave for not stopping it. But...

The Celtics just *marmalised* the Lakers..

I am sad that the Suns weren't able to do this, this year, but this might be one of the sweetest sports moments ever.  The Celtics didn't just beat the Lakers, they *crushed* them, pounded them,...

How to fix the ref problem

There are too many instances of egregiously bad calls in the playoffs for this to go away: Bennett Salvatore non-call on Walton, Hue Hollins call on Scottie Pippen, Lakers/Kings 6th game, etc.... ...

Jeff Hornacek and Team Phoenix

Sounds like Steve Kerr is interviewing Jeff Hornacek for a coaching position. While I don't think he's ready yet for a head coach job, I think in time he'll be great. And he's one of my favorite...

David Stern needs to do the right thing for Seattle.

I know David Stern isn't exactly the most beloved person around here, but I'm wondering what you all make of what's going on with the Sonics ownership, and the fact that there's now email outlining...
