Basketball IQ: The Fireman vs. the Triggerman

The UAAP will once again kick off this weekend so let’s browse the UAAP annals for a bit. In 1984, Game 3 of the UAAP Finals, two high-scoring long range bombers brought the house down with their incredible marksmanship.

The first and only coach to win two Grand Slams in the PBA. This is the legacy that Tim Cone will leave behind if and when he retires—unless of course Manny Pacquiao turns out to be a coaching genius and breaks records (he won’t). In other basketball news, Jarrett Jack gave Cleveland Cavalier hopefuls a mini-heart attack with a cryptic tweet that only said “I got news,” which turned out to be totally not Lebron-related. If only Cav fans had enough Jarrett jerseys to burn. You have to admit, it was expert trolling though.

We are all witnesses… to this crazy LeBron free agency saga that may or may not end with more jerseys set aflame. As NBA pundits, haters, and so-called Heat fans continue to speculate and/or troll, LBJ proved again why he is the most talked about athlete in sports. And he didn’t even have to win a ring this time (in case you’re wondering, Tim Duncan did not opt out and will play his last season with the Spurs for $10 million).

With free agency in full swing, the biggest names in the NBA are making headlines—not for having big games—but for taking meetings. That’s how awesome the off-season has been. While we grind our teeth and clench our toes waiting for a decision on where Melo and LeBron will take their talents to, let’s marvel at how Chris Kaman is really Chris Rock trapped in a seven-foot German body.

Who’s in, who’s out

Basketball IQ: Carl Lewis was drafted in the NBA

If you think that there are only four Hall of Famers from the 1984 NBA Draft (MJ, Chuck, Hakeem, and Stockton), you’re wrong. Another guy who had a Hall of Fame career is Frederick Carlton Lewis or better known as Carl Lewis.

If you missed the controversial Game 1 of the 2014 PBA Governor’s Cup Finals, here’s how the last possession went down: Down three points with less than three seconds left, Paul Lee took a cross-court inbound pass, faked, took one step back, took a page out of D-Wade’s fishing expedition book, sent Marc Pingris flying, and had a chance to send the game into overtime. But alas, no foul was called, pushing San Mig to just two wins away from a Grand Slam.

Yeng Guiao thought “Paul got fouled in the last play,” while Tim Cone wasn’t sure because he was “too far away” from the play. Was there a foul? Did Lee initiate contact? Did he travel? These are the questions that will haunt the rest of this series, no doubt. And to keep the debate going, was there a foul in Kobe’s tweet?

The 2014 NBA off-season made another huge step towards being more entertaining than the 2014 NBA playoffs. While the Miami Heat drama continues to unravel, Jason Kidd makes a power play in Brooklyn, which may end up in him being GM and head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. Yeah, it doesn’t make sense to us either. But at least it drew some hilarious tweets.

Best of luck, Isaiah

We’re sure you’ve seen this already but it’s hard not to watch it again and again. Such a fitting tribute to a young man, whose NBA dream was prematurely crushed by an unforeseen circumstance. If this doesn’t get you at least a little choked up, then you have a heart made out of whatever material they use for making submarines.
