Back in January Durant and the Thunder first met up with their adversaries, the Miami Heat and then left South Beach smiling after schooling the Heatles in a game they had complete control over. Today, the Slim Reaper plans to once again put on a show for LeBron and his crew, sending a message that they are on track to derailing their three-peat attempt!
At the beginning of the season Kevin Durant proclaimed he was tired of finishing second and that he was coming for King James’ throne. So far KD has done just that, having an incredible season throwing up one spectacular game after another; all while leading the MVP race.
In the absence of his partner in crime Russell Westbrook, he single handedly put the Thunder on his back averaging 35 points, 7.5 rebounds and 6.3 assist. His impressive play not only has fans cheering, it’s also taken OKC to the top with the best record in the NBA. Continue reading →
One word to describe the Knicks’ season so far: embarrassing. There were moments when it seemed Carmelo Anthony would rather be buying Jordans at Footlocker than be playing in some games. And I wouldn’t blame him. The man has played with 110% effort this season. He has put it all on the court averaging 27.3 points and 8.6 rebounds a game. And don’t knock him for his seemingly underwhelming 3.0 assists per game. Melo isn’t a passer. That isn’t his game. He doesn’t posses the elite point guard skills and court vision Lebron has, and that’s OK. For a long time we have knocked Carmelo for his lack of passing, but we should come to realize he is a great scorer; not a great all around player. Great scorers need talent around him to win and the Knicks lack that talent.
The point guard position: Raymond Felton has seriously regressed this season. Only averaging 10.4 points, 5.9 assists, and barely shooting above 40%, he has been arguably the worst starting point guard in the league. He probably is the worst finishing point guard. He misses so many easy buckets at the rim. He would then pout or complain to the referees instead of toughening up and running back on defense. Most notably, Felton looks like he eats chocolate chip muffins all day. He doesn’t work hard enough to be the best point guard possible and it shows in his bad play. Continue reading →
