1 Comment

Amir JohnsonWith less than two days to go before the start of the 2014 NBA Playoffs, it’s an exciting time to anticipate all of the action set to take place. As one of the more surprising teams this season, the Toronto Raptors are gearing up to kick off the post-season with their scheduled match up against the Brooklyn Nets.

Despite clinching the Atlantic division and earning the three seed for the Eastern Conference, there are still doubts surrounding the inexperienced Raptors. This will be the first time in the playoffs for many of the players on this roster, but they’re not letting that serve as a point against them.

One of the more notable reactions being made come from Raptors Forward Amir Johnson. Taking to twitter to voice his thoughts, he asserted the confidence that he has in his team.

1909fuhgeddabouditThe Nets and Bulls are on course for a potential rematch of last year’s first-round playoff series.

Is this the ideal scenario for Brooklyn? As they say in the borough, “Fuhgeddaboudit!”

It’s been a frigid winter in Brooklyn, and a trip to the “Windy City” could dampen any hopes of the Nets springing ahead to the next round.

time flies'Where the hell has the time gone? It certainly flies as the days get shorter and darkness descends in the late afternoon.

We’re already through the first quarter of the NBA season and almost at Christmas. The league has seen plenty of pleasant surprises, like the consistently stellar Portland Trail Blazers, and many disappointments, like the entire Eastern Conference besides Indiana and Miami.

There have also been a whole host of players who have really progressed in a positive direction over the opening 20 games or so.

Tweet of the Day: NBA, Players Remember Nelson Mandela

1 Comment

Many amazing men have walked the earth having had a profound impact on the world with their lives. Men like Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr.. Their deaths were monumental and the cause of grief to many.

Former South African President Nelson Mandela died Thursday at the age of 95.

Mandela was instrumental in bringing about the end of Apartheid (racial segregation) and ushering in an era of ethnic equality in South African politics. His efforts earned him the Nobel Peace Prize.

Addressing his passing, United States President Barack Obama spoke to the press from the White House.

He achieved more than could be expected of any man. Today he’s gone home, and we’ve lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth.”

There is a lot to be grateful for in life, regardless of what is going on in yours. Simply having life is something to be grateful for.

NBA athletes have plenty to be grateful for and often express their gratitude. Here is what some of them are grateful for this year.
