That was my first reaction to the story that LeBron James got dunked on by Jordan Crawford of Xavier a few weeks ago in a pickup basketball game at a Nike camp, hosted by James. ESPN treated the story like it was breaking news. You would have thought that the Hindenburg went down again!
Rocky feels the Same as TAS about the Lakers
Now the matchups are known, the schedule is set in stone (even if it means chasing off a WWE event from the Pepsi Center) and the Nuggets look to rumble on to the finals. Despite not getting much national press all season, the Nuggets now have the following of the NBA analysts and basketball fans. People are beginning to believe in our team and some are even coming out and publicly saying that they choose the Nuggets to win the series. John Berry went on record on ESPN today and predicted that the Nuggets will win in six. John Hollinger is using his PER system to also take Denver as his choice to be victorious but covered all of his bases and stated that “Bynum is the ultimate wildcard” and that his prediction is void with good play from the Lakers center. Sadly it has taken all season and two rounds of the playoffs for the Nuggets to get this much deserved attention.

Last nights victory for the Denver Nuggets is the most exciting thing to happen to the city of Denver since a certain 21 game winning streak. We here in the Mile High City don’t mind being counted out and left for dead. Just like the 2007 Rockies, nobody has given this Nuggets team a chance. Continue reading

The NBA Playoffs are here and it is time to break down the match-ups and predict the winners. In the Eastern conference, the top three teams are clear-cut favorites but the lower seeds always seem to find a way to make things interesting.
The #1 Cleveland vs. #8 Detroit matchup seems to be easy enough to call right now. Cleveland has the best record in the league, the best home record, and the best player in LeBron James. He seems to be unstoppable and is turning himself into a great big game player. The Cavs also have a deeper bench than in years before and are playing together better than almost any team in the league. If Mo Williams comes to play and shows why he was an all-star, look for this series to be over very quickly. The Pistons still have the nucleus of Rip Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, and Rasheed Wallace, along with an up and coming point guard in Rodney Stuckey but they traded away their most valuable player in Chauncey Billups. They are well coached and have a lot of post-season experience but just dont have the weapons to stop LeBron and the Cavs. Continue reading
When UNC senior Danny Green steps onto the court against the LSU Tigers today, he will be playing in his 141st game, tying a North Carolina record set by Brendan Haywood. Green and fellow senior Tyler Hansbrough have played key roles for the Tarheels this season, earning them a no. 1 seed in this years NCAA Tournament. Recently, it has been rare to see a talented senior like Hansbrough (who set the all-time ACC scoring record in their first round game against Radford), stick around for four years, passing on an the opportunity for wealth in the NBA draft.

Being that every day I hear about how we are about to enter the next great depression, I am doing my best to find joy in the little things. So a day after the Nuggets threw a revenge fueled beat down on the Nets, I think it is time we cash in our chips ladies and gentleman. And when I say chips, I mean taco shells.
Now, I am from Brighton, CO and I am no stranger to cheap mexican food… or dirty toilets for that matter. But you would be hard pressed to find anywhere where you can get three tacos for a dollar. Today, Taco Bell is there to shoulder your economically influenced hunger pangs. That is because every time the Nuggets score more than 107 points, we get hooked up with Taco Bell Tacos. I say if the Nuggets go off for 168 again, we all get lime green Hummers with the Incredible Hulk airbrushed on the hood just like Anthony Carter.
