The 2021 NBA Playoffs Have Officially Been Ruined By Injuries

Last night, in the third quarter, Bucks superstar and 2x NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounpo went down with what looked like a serious knee injury. He was holding the back of his knee, and that’s where your ACL is located. He didn’t return to the game. It didn’t take a genius to put 2+2 together. It’s […]

It Sure Looks Like Damian Lillard is On His Way Out of Portland…

Over the weekend, the Blazers announced that they’d hired Chauncey Billups to be their next head coach. The problem is, Dame had previously stated that he preferred Jason Kidd for the job. Yahoo! Sports’ Chris Haynes reported that this, along with the Blazers’ inability to put Championship-level talent around him, “could push Damian Lillard out […]

Pip recently had some thoughts about KD and the Nets’ game seven loss to Milwaukee: “KD, as great as his offense was, it turned out to be his worst enemy because he didn’t know how to play team basketball. He kept trying to go punch for punch.” “Have you ever seen LeBron take a shot […]

It was close all game, dozens of lead changes, big shots left and right, and you had two of the best players in the world going toe-to-toe. Neither team could pull away, and it felt […]

LeBron Blasts NBA for Putting Players at Higher Injury Risk

Damn, he didn’t hold back: The thing is, he was saying this stuff before the season started. I have been saying since the playoffs started that the shortened offseason was bad for players and likely causing all these injuries, but I was only saying that because LeBron was saying it. I figured he knew what […]

Kevin Durant With a Playoff Performance for the Ages

49 points, 17 rebounds, 10 assists on a ridiculous 16-23 shooting. No Kyrie, James Harden in the game but basically a decoy the entire night. Series tied 2-2, everyone calling you dead in the water. This is one for the history books. He played all 48 minutes. Didn’t sit at all. He hit a huge […]
