Chris Bosh’s Season Might Be Over

Chris Bosh blood clots Miami Heat 2016Chris Bosh sat out NBA All-Star Weekend, but did travel to attend events in Toronto. He seemed in good spirits, but there must have been a cloud hanging over his head.

Bosh is officially listed as being out with a strained calf. There’s usually no red flag associated with such a minor injury. Well,┬áthere could be more to this injury.

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: Miami Heat

Josh McRoberts Miami Heat funny weird NBALeBron James took his ball and went home…and Miami fans should thank him. If you like actual basketball (not that non-stop isolation offense crap), you’re going to love this team.

Miami probably won’t be in the NBA Finals this season, but I like the team they put together. They spent their cap money pretty well. They may have overpaid Chris Bosh, but we’ll see what kind of player he is without LeBron. He could be worth every penny.

We will be posting a team preview for every team up until the start of the regular season.

Here is the 2014-15 NBA season preview for the Miami Heat.

Miles-Plumlee-NBA-Phoenix-SunsFantasy basketball just finished its first week of play. We are starting to figure out which players will get minutes and a few players who will benefit from an early season injury.

I know fantasy basketball isn’t as widely-played as fantasy football and baseball, but it’s a fun game. You have to work the lineups daily like baseball, but need to keep a close eye on how many games a team plays that week.

We look at some of the players who weren’t drafted in most leagues, but are now worth a pickup. The names on this list may surprise you. Two awkward white guys who used to be glued to the Indiana Pacers bench and a player who we all assumed was fantasy irrelevant made the list.

NBA: Top 10 Best White Boy Dunks Ever

Josh+McRoberts+Dunk+NBA+White+BoyThe movie “White Men Can’t Jump” didn’t help the stereotype that most white guys are un-athletic.I have had this blog for a few years and I cannot believe that I have never thought of posting ‘white guy slam dunk’ videos. There have been a lot of pale NBA players have graced us with fantastic dunks. Tom Chambers and Rex Chapman had awesome dunks and helped pave the way for Brent Barry to win the Slam Dunk contest…but let’s not fool anyone, the stereotype still exists.

I scoured YouTube in search of the best videos of white boys throwing it down in the NBA. I picked a few iconic dunks and a couple that have happened recently. I excluded many amazing dunks that happened in college, because I could make a top 50 post with those.

Here’s the ten best videos of “white guys dunking in the NBA”…I added a special video at the end. Continue reading
