The Series Really Begins On Sunday

Where are we again? (Photo by Stephen Dunn/Getty Images) Although Phil Jackson never loses a series when his team wins Game 1 --really, it never happens, he's 43-0 -- I'm not ready to hand the Los Angeles Lakers the championship or dismiss the Orlando Magic just yet, based on...

Why I Picked the Lakers

We're playing for a little more than a championship, Kobe. (AP Photo) There really isn't a way to measure hunger or burning desire, but it is an important factor this time of year. It also has played an important role in my decision to pick the eventual NBA champion...

Eddie Jordan's Reflections On Wizards

Ha, ha. I'll see the Wizards at least three times a season. (Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Getty Images) I know this is a little bit late, but I happened to scroll over Eddie Jordan's transcript from his press conference introducing him as the new coach of the...

Nike Puppet Re-Mix

I'm not sure if you had a chance to see it, but somebody -- probably an Orlando Magic fan -- has already taken his own spin on the popular (but likely soon to be defunct) Nike puppet commercials. I'll show you the original version where LeBron and Kobe have to...

Thirty Years ... And Counting

Guess what? In 30 years, you'll still be waiting to get back here and the Sonics won't even exist. (Photo by Richard Heyza/The Seattle Times) With the NBA Finals two days away, I thought it was a good time to reflect on one of the league's longest championship series...

You Tell Us: Will You Miss LeBron in the Finals?

Okay, maybe this is a little bit of a layup, but hear me out. Any time you're as dangerous as I am, losing is going to hurt. (Photo by Elsa/NBAE via Getty Images) For a while, it was cool to anticipate the Kobe-LeBron, Lakers/Cavs Finals. Then when the Nuggets and...
