Three games into the NBA Finals and we know three things: 1. Kahwi Leonard is a silent beast with freakishly huge hands, 2. This series is shaping up to be one of the most unpredictable, and 3. Mario Chalmers sucks (unless of course he erupts for 30 in Game 4 to shut us up—totally possible).

If reports are accurate, five-time NBA champion Derek Fisher will soon trade his tight-fitting jersey for a three-piece suit as head coach of the New York Knicks. Two reasons why this is fascinating: it’s the Knicks and Fish has zero experience. But, hey, at least he’s not a boxer moonlighting as a congressman and gasp, PBA coach.

Too cool for LeBron

The All-NBA Teams are out and only Kevin Durant was unanimously voted to the First Team. LeBron James was off by a single ballot. Yep, former ESPN reporter and current blogger Chris Sheridan felt LBJ is not among the best two forwards in the league this season. What type of cheap chemical is he inhaling?

BOOM pa… oh, you know the rest

The most obvious storyline in the PBA Governor’s Cup is San Mig Coffee’s quest for the Grand Slam. Well, it looks like the Mixers have a new battle-cry courtesy of high-flying jitterbug Justin Melton. Will it propel them to their fourth straight title? Uhm, you be the judge.
