Music of the Traffic – Week 21

We may have witnessed a Finals preview on Friday when Kyrie Irving went all loco on the Spurs, forcing overtime and ultimately a come-from-behind win for the Cavs. Of course, a lot of things would have to happen for those two teams to meet in the Finals, but that game certainly had all the drama, intensity and excitement of a… Read more →

Cue the Madness: NCAA Tournament Players to Watch

The hype around the previous NBA draft class was in full swing this time last year. Wiggins, Parker, Randle, Smart, McDermott etc. all had their sights set on a deep run in pursuit of an NCAA title, but also a boost to their draft stocks.

Music of the Traffic – Week 20

To say Russell Westbrook is playing well right now would be a massive understatement. In fact, it’d be downright disrespectful to the man. He is in the zone. He’s en fuego. He’s well and truly entrenched himself in the MVP race; and if you think otherwise, well you’re just not paying attention. Wednesday’s 49 point, 16 rebound, 10 assist effort… Read more →

The New World Game

“With the first pick in the 2005 NBA Draft, the Milwaukee Bucks select, Andrew Bogut from Australia and the University of Utah.” Aside from Bogut calling Stephen A. Smith a [email protected]#er, that was undoubtedly one of the proudest moments in Australian Basketball, but it also signalled something else in NBA circles. Following Yao Ming in 2002 and Michael Olowakandi in… Read more →

Music of the Traffic – Week 16

All-Star Weekend is nearly upon us. It might be one of the most polarising events on the NBA schedule each year as it divides fans, media and coaches alike with respect to who should be invited, what the format of each event should be and how much it really matters. All-Star snubs are a topic of hot debate each and… Read more →
