Photos of the Month

Three Point Thursday

1- There will be NO STREAKING in Chicago.

Through the gymnasium and into the quad? No.  The Heat's 27 game win streak is over courtesy of the Chicago Bulls who were able to frustrate the Heat all night with their combination of defense, rebounding, and tackle football.

"LeBron.  Hold me."

Kudos to the Heat for their incredible 27 game win streak, the second largest win streak in professional sports history.  March can be the dog days of pro basketball and the Heat were able to keep the NBA in the headlines by winning EVERY GAME since Super Bowl Sunday!  It's a great feat for the Heat, the NBA, and the sport of Roundball.  

2-REGGIE EVANS!   Reggie Evans?  I know, right?

The Bearded Basher dropped a 20/20 BOMB on the Blazers last night, dominating down low with 26 boards and 22 points.  Evans has been averaging almost 15 rebounds a game this past month while playing starter minutes and giving the Nets more toughness and grit in the paint.

Roundball would like to credit much of Deron Williams' resurgence this month to the hard-hat mentality of Reggie Evans.  His hard work on defense and rebounding the outlet pass has allowed D. Will to get out in open space and create more opportunities.  Now playing much better, Brooklyn looks to grab home court advantage with a 4 seed and make some noise in the playoffs with this tough squad.

3- Spurs Stay Sharp.  

In a loaded Western Conference the 54-17 Spurs STILL have the NBA's best record.  Despite a 27 game win streak and the Thunder chasing them all season, San Antonio continues to win.  Tony Parker is back.  They have won 5 our of their last 6 games, and they just beat a red hot Denver Nuggets team behind Tim Duncan's 23 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 blocks.  Expect the Spurs to return back to the Western Conference Finals where they belong.

NBA Jam Session

This week in Roundball has seen some of the most amazing dunks of the year.  Lob City took dunking to another level as both DeAndre Jordan AND Blake Griffin added to their impressive highlight reel.  It also saw two seven foot brothers go toe to toe, and a flurry of fantastic jams.  Ahmad Rashad would be proud.

Dwightmare Returns to Orlando

DUHWight returned to the team "full of players that nobody wanted" last night and was welcomed by a chorus of well deserved hatred:

You are now arriving at Lob City

Lob City.  Reaching new heights daily.  The latest was a Deathmarch from DeAndre Jordan, crushing down an insane opposite handed alley-oop from CP3, leaving Brandon Knight in a body bag.  Enjoy

And just for good measure...

Rest in peace, Brandon Knight.

Roundball Ramblings

For starters, Ibaka deserved WAY more than a $25k fine.  D-Wade got a one game suspension and upwards of a $200k fine for his "on-ball foul" against Ramon Sessions.  Ibaka knew exactly what he was doing, and his stupid, tongue face after the fact on the sidelines cemented how much of a POS he is.

Ibaka breaking the ONE unwritten rule in all of pro sports.  Stay clear of the family jewels.

The Bucks Stop Here

Milwaukee Making Noise in March with Fourth Straight Win

Since the acquisition of J.J. Redick, the Milwaukee Bucks are looking like a brand new team.  Brandon Jennings has continued to develop his game as a team leader and facilitator, Monta Ellis has been on a scoring tear, and Larry Sanders has provided the interior defense to give this team a much needed spark.
