Miami Herald Runs “Congratulations Miami!” Macy’s Ad After Heat Lose NBA Finals

No, it’s not quite as egregious as when U.S. President Harry Truman famously held up a newspaper declaring “Dewey Defeats Truman” shortly after Truman won the 1948 election. But, it’s still pretty bad. Hours after the Miami Heat lost the NBA Title to the Mavericks in Game 6, the Miami Herald ran a Macy’s ad […]

What Could Have Been? Corey Brewer Nearly Chose Celtics

Although he has only appeared in a total of five playoff games for the Dallas Mavericks, Corey Brewer would have been a big piece in the Celtics rotation, had he signed in Boston. It was also a real possibility and came down to how many years each team was willing to give him. Dallas gave […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 23

Just one more week left until the playoff situation is officially known, and once again, the Celtics find themselves just trying to get healthy.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 22

Just two more weeks to go and we’ll know who makes it into the playoffs. Nine of 16 spots are punched so far, including three of the six divisions. Some of the top teams are having pretty big struggles, and others are taking advantage. Memphis is building a little bit of space out west, while […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 21

Just a few more weeks left. The Lakers, Celtics and Bulls have clinched their divisions, while the Heat, Magic, Spurs and Mavericks have all clinched playoff spots. There’s a good amount of room between all #8s and #9s, but nothing’s guaranteed there just yet. There are four teams in the West and five in the […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 3-22-11

The San Antonio Spurs continued their dominance of the SoB NBA Power Rankings this week, coming it at No. 1 yet again. The Spurs still have the NBA’s best record, but they may sputter down the stretch after losing Tim Duncan to a sprained ankle Monday night. The All-Star center is expected to be out […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 20

20 weeks are gone, and while the Spurs are riding high, the Celtics now have to resort to a tiebreaker against Chicago to hold the top spot in the East. And don’t listen to Chicago or Doc Rivers; getting the top seed means a lot. The bottom of the East also has a tie to […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 3-7-11

The San Antonio Spurs didn’t make any moves at the trade deadline, but that didn’t stop them from maintaining their stranglehold on the No. 1 spot in the SoB NBA Power Rankings. The Spurs have now held the No. 1 spot in our rankings for two straight months, and despite getting drubbed by the Los […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 18

It won’t be long now until the playoffs begin, and there’s still a lot to be decided. Except for the Spurs, every playoff team is at most 2.5 games away from their nearest competition. The trade deadline passed, with spectacular results. Now, cuts will be looking for a new team in time to be playoff […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 17

After the All-Star break, it’s still a rough NBA world. Dwyane Wade got roughed up a little bit Sunday, Carmelo Anthony is a Knick and Cleveland finally got to 10 wins. San Antonio’ll wind up as #1, and Chicago will more than likely wind up as #3, though they’re only two games back. Speaking of […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 16

The Clippers are now officially the worst team ever, after letting Cleveland get the better of them. Speaking of which, it’s thanks to the Cavs that Washington finally won a road game in its 26th attempt. And the Celtics are still in 1st place in the East despite emptying out the Maine Red Claws with […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 2-14-11

With one week left before the All-Star break, the NBA playoff picture is now coming into focus.

The Dallas Mavericks, who trail the Spurs by seven games, have a precarious hold on […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 15

Kobe Bryant has played more games than Michael Jordan, Ray Allen needs two more threes to break Reggie Miller’s record, and the Cavaliers have now lost more games in a row (25) than the previous record holder, Cleveland.
