NBA Fantasy Minute: Gortat’s blistering start

So the big news in Suns’ country this past offseason was Steve Nash moving on to La La Land.   But that was the offseason….a time that strangely feels like centuries ago now with Nash already banged up and the Suns getting, dare I say, Dwight Howard type numbers from their big man in the middle, the “Polish Hammer”, Marcin Gortat.

Knicks – Wizards highlights 2/8/2012 We wanted … Read entire article »

Although the kid had played professionally in his native Spain for years, I still thought it’d take a couple season for him to truly get acclimated to the hostile ways of the Association.

JaVale McGee post rare 11-point, 12-rebound, 12-block triple-double in loss to Bulls

Washington Wizards’ starting center JaVale McGee posted a rare 11-point, 12-rebound, 12-block triple-double in a 98-79 loss to the Bulls Tuesday night from the United Center in downtown Chicago, Illinois.
