    They’ve been the best team in the division for two years, but the Pacers might soon face the prospects of becoming also-rans in the Central. Consider the possibilities: LeBron James (and the No. 1 pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft) in Cleveland, Carmelo Anthony (and Derrick Rose) in Chicago. Anthony, of […]

    The Miami Heat were not just defeated by the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, it turned out to be the most lopsided championship round in history. Beatings that soundly cost people jobs. It should. The Heat were embarrassed and clearly not the superior team in the league for […]

    Real MVP question in NBA: Who’ll finish third?

    We can all agree that the name on this season’s Maurice Podoloff Trophy will either belong to Kevin Durant or LeBron James. Whichever of the two you like, you can’t be wrong. Both are having MVP seasons and almost any rational NBA thinker can see either side of the argument. […]
