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? Perhaps he even considered voting Vitor Faverani.
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.
When Lamar tweeted this, we thought it’d be a photo of him in a club playing beer pong. Focus!
Calm before the storm
After hearing Tim Duncan’s comment slash subtle guarantee about winning the NBA title this year, LeBron James responded, although in a more diplomatic, non-combative way: “They don’t like us, they don’t. I can sense it from Timmy’s comments over the last couple of days. They wanted this, they wanted us and we’ll be ready for the challenge.” C’mon, ‘Bron, you can do better than that!
Ouch, that’s no way to speak to the real MVP, son.
Grandma Super Heat Fan
Age doesn’t matter in love, especially if it’s basketball you heart. Just ask Mary from South Florida. We don’t know her age but we do know she LOVES the Miami Heat. Here’s a video of her animatedly and anxiously watching Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, where unfortunately, the Indiana Pacers defeated her most beloved team in the galaxy.
If you’re planning to ask Gregg Popovich relevant/stupid questions after a game, just don’t. That’s one of the takeaways from Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, which like the four games before it, ended way before the final buzzer. Aside from a grown man dunk from Russell Westbrook, a Steve Kerr-Reggie Miller jaw-fest, and another Pop beatdown (not on OKC), here are the real, key takeaways from today that matter (Shaq-Kobe bromance included).
But aside from the final score, updates, and the highlights, other equally fascinating stuff has been happening. Trivial or not, they’re all part of the adrenaline-pumping post-season experience. Since we’re suckers for anything basketball-related, we decided to make a Power Rankings of the random and sometimes incoherent things that have transpired in the Conference Finals.
