-The Thunder demolished the Heat on Wednesday night.  The Heat started the game with a flurry with a 22-4 lead.  It appeared to be one of those games where the Heat really focus and play the way they are capable of playing. However, that didn’t last.  Many of the Heat players didn’t look into the [...]

-So I’m stuck at my in-laws today because I couldn’t get home last night because of the weather.   I’m better off than my wife who is still stuck at work. I’m so fortunate to have wonderful in-laws who were willing to let me stay for as long as I have to.   In case [...]

2013-14 Panini Elite BK Break & Preview

January 28th, 2014

Panini opened a box of the new Elite BK on their blog.  You can see the entire break HERE.  This product truly baffles me.  Can we not make the RC autographs actual Elite cards like in baseball?  Why not do this product just like baseball?  Get rid of the jerseys that are pretty much worthless [...]

-Kevin Durant did it again last night.  He finished with 41 points and hit 2 clutch shots at the end of the game.  He truly is on a tear unlike I’ve ever seen before.  I remember Kobe having a streak like this several years back, but I don’t remember it being quite like this.  He’s [...]

-I forgot to mention the Australian Open yesterday.  I must say that I was shocked to see Wawrinka beat Nadal.  Nadal did suffer a back injury which really hurt his chances.  However, Wawrinka was dominating the match even before the injury.  He was already up a set and a break in the second set.  This [...]

-Meant to post this yesterday, but WOW!  Carmelo Anthony.  What a game.  He went off for 62 points on Friday night.  He probably could have gotten to at least 70.  Sadly it wasn’t a close game and he came out with about 7 minutes to go.  I’m sure it was a welcome site for Knicks [...]
