3 Reasons Why NBA Super Teams are Good for the Association

With the NBA season now past the halfway point as the NBA trade deadline quickly approaches, GM’s across the league are gearing up for the moves to come. Some of them with hopelessly optimistic views of their teams, trying to gain whatever immediate talent to make a playoff run and buy them a little extra real estate with their owners and fan bases. Others are looking long term, trying to land that huge deal, that makes the Disney/Fox merger look like child’s play.

Let’s Reflect: Kobe Bryant 81 Point Game

Kobe’s 81 point game on January 22nd, 2006 against the Raptors is his greatest singular achievement.

Like “David” was for Michelangelo. It sums him all up in one piece of work.

After 20 years of watching him make it look easy, I think we’re all became desensitized by watching Kobe Bryant score. “Oh boy, Kobe poured in another 30 point game – yawn.”

Bill Belichick IS Gregg Popovich, Finkle IS Einhorn!

Have you ever seen them in the same room at the same time? Bill Belichick is Gregg Popovich, Gregg Popovich is Bill Belichick. They are the exact same human being. Here is why.

Let’s Reflect: “The Admiral” David Robinson’s 71 Point Game

What makes Robinson’s 71 point performance special is that not only was he just the third player to score 70+ in an NBA game, but that the 1993-94 NBA scoring title was on the line.
