Speed Kills….and So Do Turnovers

Last night the Oklahoma City Thunder laid waste to the Los Angeles Lakers winning 119-90. The one thing we are learning about the Thunder is that when Russell Westbrook is on his game, this team is nearly unstoppable. Westbrook put together his most complete game of the season scoring 27 on only 15 shots with 7 boards 9 assists, and only one turnover. For a team that has averaged close to 16 turnovers a game,  only turning the ball over 4 times was huge.

MJ and his comments on the king

The mother ship had a conversation with Michael Jordan and asked him about Lebrons move. MJ said “There’s no way, with hindsight, I would’ve ever called up Larry, called up Magic and said, ‘Hey, look, let’s get together and play on one team,’ ” Jordan said after playing in a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada. The interview aired on the NBC telecast of the event. “But that’s … things are different. I can’t say that’s a bad thing. It’s an opportunity these kids have today. In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys.” – espn

Come on guys, this is Jordan we are talking about. One of the best when it comes to  mind games. He just saw the Miami Heat become a super power while the team he owns who is in the same division is at the bottom of the barrel. Jordan knows that this move kills his team and he is gonna take as many pot shots as he can, not to mention he has a legacy he is trying to protect. Context people, context.

Are we being too harsh on the king?

Everyone is quick to point the finger at Lebron James here and make him out to be the bad guy when in reality there are others who need to own up and take the blame.

The economy and the NBA: the rich get richer

This NBA off season has seen more shakeups, lopsided trades, and head scratching signings than we have seen in a long time. If you are wondering why the off season has been so volatile you only have to turn to the down economy for answers.

The news is not good out of H-Town.  After taking the Lakers to 7 games in the Western Conference Semi’s without Yao Ming, the Rockets may have to get use to playing like that for the foreseeable future.  This could be a big blow to a team that can seemingly challenge the Lakers in the West.  While I think career threatening is a little extreme, not having Yao for an entire season will throw a wrench in their plans to improve upon this seasons success.

Richard Jefferson traded to Spurs

god thank you for getting me out of Milwaukee

"God thank you for getting me out of Milwaukee!"

Great, just great. I thought we were done with having The Spurs being contenders. Done with seeing players flopping and whining about every single foul call in a game. Guess I was wrong. According to Milwaukee’s Richard Jefferson has been traded to the San Antonio Spurs for Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas, and Fabricio Oberto.

Magic fans rejoice! Dwight Howard will be on the cover of EA sports new NBA Live ’10 next year. Even after a big win on monday it took a gargantuan effort to pull out a win against the Lakers so it’s not looking like a championship is in their future but at least you get something out of this whole finals thing.
