Sunday, May 24th, 2015

The NBA's conference finals have been the definition of anti-climax as both series appear headed towards four-game sweeps. But that's nowhere near as unexciting as the wait until the start of the NBA Finals will be. The starting date of the Finals was set as June 5 before the end the ...

Redick and Morrison Suck, Will Have A Ring

Monday, June 8th, 2009

Here's just a little food for thought. No matter which team wins the NBA Finals this year (nice work boys, keep it up) a player whose career has become a joke will win a title. Either Adam Morrison or J.J. Redick will walk away from this series with a ring. ...
