Michael Jordan is the G.O.A.T. and all BUT…

Any NBA player who possesses superstar talent (With the exception of Big Men) will inevitably be compared to one Michael Jordan.

Flashback Friday: The Magic of Sebastian Telfair

It takes a special kind of basketball player to captivate an entire city. A city as big a New York I might add. Sebastian Telfair did just that during his 4 years at the Famed Abraham Lincoln High School in Coney Island. The same school made famous by his older Cousin Stephon Marbury, as well

Basketball Love Affair (The Origin)

The first time I ever played organized basketball was in the 6th Grade. Truthfully speaking, prior to that I was absolutely trash at hoop! All of my friends either played Rec or Travel (the serious ones played AAU). I despised being one of the last picks on the playground, day in and day out during

2-4 Tuesday: Kobe vs. Vince

Unlike Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant had a legit list of qualified rivals in his prime. Guys who consistently took aim at his Best on the Planet Title. Entering the same draft class as Allen Iverson, Stephon Marbury & Ray Allen to name a few; any given night could be a test for Kobe. As the

2-4 Tuesday: Westbrook Must Channel His Inner Mamba

Kobe Bryant’s first 8 years in the Association were marked by his role as the Co-Star of a Hollywood Dynasty, a Sexual Assault Case that almost derailed his career, and then a bitter divorce from Shaquille O’Neal. Amidst of all the highs and lows, the basketball world waited impatiently to see what KB8 could do

Reasons Why Kyrie Irving Will Be Unleashed

With 55 seconds left in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, Kyrie Irving sized up Steph Curry and sank arguably the second biggest shot in NBA Finals History (Jordan’s shot over Bryon Russell in ’98 is #1). The dagger 3 would erase all the ills of Cleveland sports over the last 52 years. Following

Rest Assured, LeBron James is Still King

I’ll start by saying this, Wardell Stephen Curry is one helluva basketball player. He’s very deserving of the MVP this year, all of the acclaim and adulation that comes his way as well. The Golden State Warriors’ rise/success coincides with his maturation and growth as a basketball player. 402 3 Pointers made is absurd. Unanimous
