The Indiana Pacers Go On The Road In Game 7 To Possess Miami’s Championship Land

on June 03 2013 2:27 PM

The Miami Heat took hold of the importance of winning game five, especially Lebron James. James was the Super King James Version throughout the game and particularly in the third quarter of game. His third quarter explosion separated the Heat from the Pacers and the Pacers were unable to recover to challenge the Heat in fourth quarter. Miami definitely drew a line in the sand by winning the critical game five. The series was tied 2-2.

Miami Heat, The Defending Champions Vs. The Indiana Pacers: Who Will Draw The Line In The Sand?

on May 30 2013 10:40 AM

On Thursday night, May 30th, in the fifth game of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, someone will draw a line in the sand. The Miami Heat had their opportunity to draw a line in the sand during game four of the series. The Heat had a 2-1 lead in the series and a win at Indiana would have put the Pacers on notice that this series was now being commandered by the NBA's defending champion Miami Heat. That did not happen.

Miami completely decimated the Pacers in game three at Bankers Life Fieldhouse beating the Pacers 114-96 and the final score is not indicative of the beating the Indiana Pacers received.

The San Antonio Spurs “Big Three” . . . The Scent Of A Fifth NBA Championship Title

on May 27 2013 11:11 AM

The San Antonio Spurs easily defeated the Lakers, the big brother in the city of Los Angeles. The first round win by the Spurs was no big deal. Not a scent of a championship title could be detected by the Spurs at this juncture of the NBA title race. The Lakers were without Kobe Bryant and for all intent and purposes the Lakers was a depleted team whose cast of players were brought together to embellish and re-live dreams of championship glory for the Lakers and the city of Los Angeles. It was not to be.

San Antonio won the first round playoff series against the Lakers, but the series did not provide the test the Spurs needed to gage how they would perform against other competition or where they were as a team overall. The key factor was that the Spurs had made it to the second round despite the injuries and the recovery of key players. The Spurs were not playing to a level that had anyone predicting that the Spurs are contenders to win it all. Maybe not even the Spurs themselves believed they were the team to beat on the run for a NBA championship title.

UEFA Champions League 2013 Final Countdown Is Here But, Is Soccer Football? Or Is Football Football, Who Owns The Name?

on May 25 2013 6:08 AM

 Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich in UEFA’s final. This match will culminate UEFA bringing the best of the best of soccer together to compete, but the big question still remains; who owns the name soccer / football, who owns the game.

The game is comprised of eleven players on one team and eleven players on the other team. Whoever has the ball is on the offense, the opposition team is on the defense. The offensive team is trying to score; the defensive team is trying to prevent the offensive team from scoring while also attempting to gain control of the ball, as part of their defensive strategy. When one team scores, the other team can gain possession of the ball.

The game is physical and requires quickness, agility, great footwork, strength and power. The game is played with referees in outdoor stadiums. What is the name of this game? If your answer is Soccer, you are correct. Did you answer football? You are correct. How about calling the game, Association football /soccer or NFL Football, you are again correct. How can each of these answers be correct? Who owns the name?

NBA: The Golden State Warriors; On the Mark, (Jackson) Ready, Get Set, Go!!!

on May 14 2013 9:38 AM

 The Golden State Warriors have tied their NBA playoff series 2-2 with the veteran San Antonio Spurs winning game four in overtime 97-87. Both teams have won games on the opponents’ home court.  There is no question this playoff series is in the mode of ready, set, go! How did this unlikely Warriors team get on the Mark?

When the Golden State Warriors organization’s top brass made the decision to interview Mark Jackson for their head coaching vacancy they stepped out of the preverbal box. They interviewed a very good and knowledgeable ABC-NBA prime time analyst who was one of the best assist men in NBA history, but he had no resume as a coach at the high school, college or NBA level. Mark Jackson had no major coaching experience.  

Mark Jackson is an ordained minister who along with his wife is a pastor of a congregation. Not your normal prerequisite qualification for a head coach in the NBA.
