    Video: Kawhi Leonard reinjures ankle in the 3rd quarter of Game 1 of the WCF

    May 15 • NBA • 103 Views

    The San Antonio Spurs were opening a can of whoop a** on the Golden State Warriors in the Oracle Arena on Sunday (Mother’s Day) by the tune of 23 points when Kawhi Leonard landed on Zaza Pachulia when shooting a jump shot in the left corner. Eventually the Warriors went on a Warriors run and won the game 113-111 to steal Game 1.

    If Leonard can’t play or is slowed because of the ankle the Spurs have no chance in this series. The Spurs were the underdogs before the injury and rightfully so, but if they wanted to pull the upset they need Leonard to be at 110% and unless he’s Wolverine that is probably not happening.

    Do y’all think it was a dirty play by Zaza? Let us know and the comments.
    Check out the play that got him reinjured and him talking after the game.

    The NBA Playoffs have been predictable, for the Cavs and Warriors

    May 11 • NBA • 161 Views

    So at the beginning of the season everyone thought Golden State and Cleveland were on a collision course to playing in the NBA Finals for three seasons in a row. With the Cavs being in the weak Eastern Conference and being the place that LeBron James calls home you had to agree they were the favorites in the East. In the West the Warriors added Kevin Durant to the same team that has Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. Seems like a video game right?

    The Cavs played like crap in the second half of the season, but we all knew that was because of injury, rest and inserting new pieces to the equation. Kevin Love was out for a few months due to injury as well as J.R. Smith, they had to incorporate new members Deron Williams, Kyle Korver, Derrick Williams and Andrew Bogut (Bogut only got to play a few minutes before suffering a season ending injury). They even allowed the Celtics to claim the number one seed in the East, but it hasn’t mattered because they have swept the Pacers and Raptors. They will face the winner of the Wizards-Celtics matchup that is currently 3-2 Celtics, but will make easy work with whichever teams survives their current series. So, unless something crazy happens this season the Cavs will be going to the finals.

    In the West, the Warriors have had a good season, they dealt with Kevin Durant escaping a season ending knee injury. They struggled for a hand full of games to adapt without KD, but once they found stride it was the worst thing that could’ve happened to the league because now they remember how to play without KD on the floor. (Losing Harrison Barnes and adding Durant isn’t fair) JaVale McGee has been very solid off the bench, something before the season nobody predicted. Like the Cavs, the Warriors have swept the Trail Blazers and Jazz and are waiting on the winner of the Spurs-Rockets series that the Spurs are currently up 3-2. I personally think the Rockets would be a more interesting matchup for the Warriors because of their style of play, but even with that said I couldn’t see it going past five games.

    So like most predicted before the season, the Cavs and Warriors will be facing each other for the third time in a row in the NBA Finals. The question is who gets the tie breaker? The series is knotted at one. Can the Cavs handle the all-star studded Warriors? Of is LeBron and his all-star crew kryptonite for Golden State? In June we will find out because neither the Wizards, Celtics, Spurs nor Rockets can stop this third NBA Finals matchup. The writing is on the wall pleighboi.

    Video: Manu Ginobili blocks James Harden to seal Game 5 win for Spurs

    May 10 • NBA • 1294 Views

    If you watched Game 5 of the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets, one thing stood out pretty much from the jump Manu Ginobili looked like he was in a time machine for the pivotal game of the series. After four games of blowouts by both sides we finally got a good game.

    Ginobili had 12 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 block (game sealing block) on Tuesday night. He even had a right handed dunk that surprised everybody.

    The Spurs won 110-107 in overtime playing most of the second half without Kawhi Leonard to take a 3-2 lead over the Rockets. Game 6 will be Thursday in Houston.

    Check out the play that sealed the game for the Spurs.

    Members of the last Celtics NBA Championship team address Ray Allen beef

    May 8 • NBA • 1660 Views

    Everyone remembers when Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen formed the “Big Three”. They won the NBA Championship in 2008 and made the finals in 2010, but with all the success it ended sour between Ray Allen and his teammates because he left his crew to join the Miami Heat a few years later.

    On Area 21 Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Glen Davis, Kendrick Perkins and Rajon Rondo addressed the Ray Allen situation. Check out the link below.

    It seems like a beef that can be fixed, but like Perkins said Allen will have to reach out.

  • Mar 4, 2017; Los Angeles, CA, USA; Lavar Ball embraces his son UCLA Bruins guard Lonzo Ball (2) after the game against the Washington State Cougars at Pauley Pavilion. Mandatory Credit: Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports ORG XMIT: USATSI-337370 ORIG FILE ID:  20170304_lbm_am8_046.JPG

    Do you have a problem with LaVar Ball’s plan?

    May 8 • NBA • 127 Views

    If you haven’t had a TV or a smart phone in the last year or so then maybe you haven’t heard of LaVar Ball. I’m guessing you have both devices and probably more electronic devices it is just the way of the world currently. Ball a former college basketball player has three sons all are going or have went to UCLA (Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo), so his profile has grown within the last 365 days.

    Lonzo had a sensational freshman season at UCLA and has declared for the NBA Draft, no matter who you speak to they all say he will be a top 5 pick and probably number one or two in this June’s draft. As good as Lonzo is on the court his father is even louder off the court, from bringing up LeBron James kids in an interview, from going at Charles Barkley, to saying he can beat Michael Jordan in one on one (Not Michael B. Jordan either smh), speaking with Stephen A. Smith on First Take, saying UCLA lost because of the Caucasian players being too slow and the lists goes on and on. He is a walking and talking media story, if you need something to talk about just seek out LaVar and he will help you get some views and some buzz around your timeline or site, it damn near seems like the Ball way.

    LaVar wants a major shoe company to co-brand with Big Baller Brand for the tune of 1 billion dollars, that isn’t a typo, Adidas, Nike and Under Armour have already declined. All three major brands would’ve loved to sign Lonzo to a 4-5 year deal at 1-2 million per year, but the ambitious LaVar has halted that aspect of income. If the co-branding deal is going to come about it will have to be from a foreign shoe company like Anta, Li-Ning or Peak (just to name a few). Lonzo is a hell of a talent, but to get a co-branding deal without setting the NBA on fire is pretty much insane, no other superstar player was able to leverage a deal of that sort without playing a single game.

    That brings us to last week when Big Baller Brand dropped the Zo2: Prime for a whopping $495 you can get them preorder, but they won’t be shipping out until November. You can get a pair autographed for $995, a steal right? Would you buy them?

    Now that we know that LaVar is certified crazy, I will say I like what he is trying to do by getting him and his family more of the cut, but as a person that watches the industry on a pretty close basis he didn’t take the right angle to make sure this gets done. Unless, UNLESS a foreign shoe company saves them and co-brands, which is possible because none of those companies get young stars so they may break the mold and if that happens it could be a free for all if Ball gets his way.

    Personally I think if LaVar should’ve let Lonzo take the big company deal, prove himself to be a legit asset in the NBA, he could’ve possibly made the deal work on the back end of the first deal, but unless you are in the LeBron, Jordan and or Kobe air then it is hard for this to work.

    If you pay $495 for some Zo2’s you need to slap yourself and I have some land to sell you in North Dakota if you want to throw your money away.

    If this plan doesn’t work then will any of the big companies take Lonzo on a regular shoe deal? If I was a betting man they would, but it won’t be for major money and if that happens to be the case LaVar will cost his son legit income in endorsements. With that being said I feel the angle (pause), but the execution is sloppy.
