James Harden has announced to the world it’s a wrap in Houston

You can mark January 12,2021 as the day that the relationship between James Harden and the Houston Rockets officially came to an end. After a second consecutive drubbing at the hands of a very jovial Los Angeles Lakers , 117-100, Harden used the postgame presser to subtly and not-so-subtly declare that he was done in Houston. Harden’s comments seemingly did not go over well with still new teammate John wall who had this to say after the game: Wall is absolutely correct. If Harden after just ten games is ready…

A 51-point donkey kicking could only happen to the Clippers

Extremely lopsided defeats are often seen in high school basketball and even college basketball but it is rare to see an nba game where the preseason broadcast lasts longer than the competitive portion of the game itself. Unfortunately for basketball and/or Clippers fans, this was the for their game , and I use that term very loosely.

Christmas Day NBA takeaways: The Warriors could already be in trouble they cannot get out of

Milwaukee 138, Golden State 99 Another nationally televised game, another trip to the woodshed for the Golden State Warriors.

Against Brooklyn they were ,as a team, connecting on just 37.4% from the floor, including 10-33 from three-point land. They actually shot…

Bleacher Report proves my point

In my piece, NBA Players talk but are they saying what really needs to be said?, one of the points I stressed was the use of the proper words and terms. Negligence in this area does not identify the goal but will also leaves the door open for other groups or entities to come in redefine the terms for their benefit and hijack the energy to achieve their ends. This is why I stressed using the term “anti-black racism” rather than nebulous phrases such as “racial inequality” or “systemic injustice”…

NBA Players talk but are they saying what really needs to be said?

In my last of common sense sports talk, I took the NBA to task for their blatantly insincerity as it relates to the fight against anti-black racism. In this edition I must deal with the players and what they are saying, what they aren’t saying and perhaps what they should not be saying. A lot of NBA players have talking on some societal issues like never before and some have spoken passionately, others from a fear-based perspective, and yet some have said a lot and yet nothing at the same…
