Leave a comment

ncaaAs March Madness continued earlier this evening for the Elite 8 round of the NCAA tournament, NBA players once again enjoyed in the festivities. In what was a highly contested game between Arizona and Wisconsin, the final moments saw it come down to a questionable call that left many NBA athletes questioning the validity of it.

As the seventh game to be decided in overtime for this tournament, this game ties the all time historic record for most overtime games in the NCAA tournament. Much like the other games that have taken place so far, this one left viewers anxiously awaiting the winner as the game carried on.

Tweet of the Night: Kendrick Perkins sings the praise of Kevin Durant


KevinDurantSH1There is no question at this point that Kevin Durant has been the best player in the NBA this season from a production standpoint, and his MVP candidacy over LeBron James should be questioned no more.

Durant has had a ridiculous year, and he appears to have no interest in slowing down or taking it easy with the season winding down. That’s good news for the Oklahoma City Thunder, because they are still trying to take back the first seed of the Western Conference over the streaking San Antonio Spurs.

PODCAST: Time to dump on the Thunder?

If you are looking for someone to bail on the Thunder because of their recent three-game losing streak, you are looking in the wrong place.

The temptation around the country is to couple the return of Russell Westbrook and the three-game loss streak, and to draw a correlation between the two.

And the other temptation when it comes to the Thunder is to bash Kendrick Perkins, the least-productive starting center, in terms of offense, in the entire Western Conference.

Well, sorry to be a voice of reason, but here’s the way I see things: Every team goes into a funk once or twice per season, at a minimum. And the Thunder just went through theirs. And as for Perkins, he is NOT in the lineup to produce big numbers. He is in the lineup to defend opposing centers, and the only time his true value will become apparent is if and when OKC faces Dwight Howard in the Western Conference playoffs.

Bernucca: Here’s Some Changes Adam Silver Should Make

Leave a comment

SternLeavingAdam Silver is in a tough spot.

Silver became the NBA’s fifth commissioner on Saturday. He follows David Stern, whose 30 years as the league’s top executive likely will be unmatched by anyone in any sport.

Silver begins his term without facing a major problem that needs immediate fixing or a hot-button issue that requires immediate attention. With TV contracts running through 2016, labor peace assured until at least 2017 and most of the top stars in their 20s, the NBA is not unlike a car in one of those 24-hour rallies.
