A New Brandon Roy nickname

One of my greatest laments about basketball these days (and all sports in general) is that guys no longer have really good, colorful nicknames. When Mark "The Bird" Fidrych died, it only...

A thought on tie-breakers

First off, let me state that, if the Blazers wanted to avoid these tiebreaker scenarios, perhaps they should have won just one more game over the course of the season. I'll also make the assumption...

If you were already crying in your beer that you traded Brandon Roy for Sebastian Telfair (gah, even in 2006, an indefensible move), after reading that article, it may be likely that if you acquire Roy, your team becomes decently modest, you don't get Garnett (and Allen) the next summer, don't win the championship, but retain Doc Rivers as coach.

March to the Sea

I'm calling it now: Portland will go 5-0 on this road trip. A professional victory over New York. Blowing the doors off of DC. A coming-out party against Boston. A high-scoring, 14 point win in...

And if you really think Detroit is landing a marquee guy in 2010 when big markets such as New York and L.A. and warm-weather cities such as Miami, Phoenix and Orlando will all be throwing money around -- not to mention deep-pocketed Portland, which will have assembled a contender at that point and remains the most logical destination for LeBron if he only cares about winning titles and nothing else (and also, Nike is right there)

Rooting against Oden...

I have to admit it. I hope Oden is only "pretty good". It's not because I dislike Oden (very likeable!) or don't want the team to win (Four in a Row!)... It's because Brandon Roy is far and away...
