Cultural Touchstones (Basketball in Art)

I've been kind of kicking this idea around for a while. What books and movies do you consider required (or overrated) to understand basketball. This came up mostly because I hadn't heard of 'The...

There are teams just trying to find answers to some things...It includes Portland, who, geez, what are they trying to do? Validate KP’s moves? Just not have the injuries render this a complete disaster? Make some sort of Kamikaze run to the Finals?

Matt Moore- Hardwood Paroxysm Two years ago the motto was ‘get better and wait for Greg' last year the motto was 'make the playoffs'. Instead of putting out a weak goal of 'be good' or 'do well in the playoffs' I propose that we steal from the honorable Matt Moore and adopt 'Kamikaze run to the finals' as our mantra. Anyone else?

Howard Bryant's Take on Retiring Jordan's #

3

I really liked this article, and thought it did a great job explaining why not only is this a bad idea, but truly why Jackie Robinson's number was retired. On an interesting side note, growing up I went to the same church as the man who took second in Rookie of the Year voting the year Robinson won it Larry Jansen. He recently passed away . But yea anyways just wanted to share this article.

Holy Cow Number 4 in Hollinger's Rankings

14

Okay so I know these rankings don't mean anything. But I still thought this was pretty cool. And we are closer to the Magic in the three spot than we are to the Celtics in 5th. We've gone over this before, they are hardly reliable, what do they really show, etc. etc. But hey, we're in 4th.

Weekend Junk Drawer

So what the heck does Rasheed do to get so darn many technical fouls? He already has 12(!) this season, which averages out to 1 every 2.33 games. Is the FreeDarko book to blame for this? He gets a...

Ian Thompson has no memory

15

Ian Thomspon says: "This might have been the worst official decision I have ever seen at a major sporting event" He apparently doesn't remember the Suns getting a technical for stepping on to the floor in the playoffs. Or the Kings getting slammed over and over again with non-existent fouls in the western conference finals. Colorado's infamous "5th down". 1972 Olympics: enough said. Or the numerous calls that went against the Blazer's in this game. It was simply a missed call, like some of the others that happened in this game. Worst official decision in sporting history? You've got to be kidding me.

Dunk Contest Ideas

11

Alright I created this post more as a way to try and suggest dunk ideas for the NBA Slam Dunk Contest. While I know it is a long way away, and we don't even know if any of our players will be invited, these things can take a bit of time to learn, so there is really no hurt in coming up with these ideas early. Plus just talking about what some of our players can do when dunking might raise their profile a bit as we know Travis, despite his high flying acrobatics, never was a part of the dunk contest, plus just generally it might be a bit of fun for our rookies to participate in. And some cool dunks would definitely raise our national profile. So yea come up with ideas and rec the ones you like...
