Back to Reality, Oops There Goes Gravity

The little fella’s a handful. Knicks 112, Raptors 103 It’s hard to say much about a game where the base requirement of any competitive arrangement isn’t there – effort. The Raptors figured the ‘away’ part of the home-and-home set is supposed to be the tougher game and since they won that, the return matchup is… Read more »

Best player on the court: Bargnani

Raptors 102, Knicks 95 The silver lining to this disappointing season continues to be Andrea Bargnani.

Screw it, I’m following the Knicks

I’ve decided to give up on the Raptors and follow the Knicks as my “favorite team”. This decision came last night after a lengthy and through-provoking discussion with my shrink who advised me to look out for my long-term happiness rather than get mired in the insecurities of the tumultuous near future.

Atlantic Division predictions

Why not? There’s nothing going on anywhere so it’s time I write the ultimate filler post. Without further ado: Boston: The Celtics trinity are a year older but they’re still only 31, 32 and 33, one could even argue that they’re in their prime. They lost James Posey who was instrumental in their title run… Read more »
