When Charles Barkley Realized Michael Jordan Was The Better Player

By | 29 Comments

<a href=""> "If you ain't first, you're last." Long before said manifesto came to define Talladega Nights, my ninth grade history teacher ironically preached the same premise. Second place is never celebrated and playing to win is the only way to approach any obstacle in life, especially sports. The NBA, the one league where an individual megastar can turn the tides of a franchise, has become known equally as much for those who have reached the mountaintop as those who never capped off their career with the label of "champion." The record books speak volumes on the difficulty of achieving the feat. Throughout the past 30 years, <a href="">only eight teams</a> have captured the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

Sunday Afternoon Hoops: Magic Vs. Suns

By | 10 Comments

<a href=""> This Sunday, a day ritually reserved for football, belonged to basketball. The TV scheduled proved such. 1. The two powerhouses of the ACC, Duke and North Carolina, ran into each other again. This time with the conference title on the line. Again. 2. The revealing of the brackets and the subsequent arguments about teams who were snubbed. 3. <a href="">The "Fab 5" documentary</a> on ESPN, which, might I say, more than lived up to its billing.

<a href=""> Blake Griffin, eat your heart out. As exciting as the "Top 3 Clipper" has been above the rim in his breakout rookie season, it's unlikely he'll be able to top this accidental phenomenon that looked like something out of a video game. For those fans that typically hit the nacho stand when the freaks and mascots hit the court, you missed out on something special as a Phoenix Sun performer---who just happened to be a kid---saw nylon flash before his eyes and miraculously walked away without any rimburn. Tricks are for kids silly rabbit. Indeed they are. Spotted @ <a href="">Yahoo</a>.

TSS 2010 NBA Playoff Preview: Western Conference Semi-Finals – Phoenix Suns Vs. San Antonio Spurs

By | 5 Comments

<a href=""> On the surface, calling the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns history a "rivarly" may not be accurate. The Spurs have clipped the Suns four times in the past five seasons. But while it may not be a "rivalry" in the literal sense, bad blood most definitely remains. Losing to a team multiple times over multiple years fosters and helps build that sense of resentment. The lasting image of Robert Horry <a href="">shoulder-checking Steve Nash</a> into the announcers table is one of the more memorable and infamous events in playoff history.
