We are in the middle of the NBA playoffs! So I haven’t really followed the playoffs too closely. I have followed the Heat and the Jazz a little bit, but I haven’t really watched any of the games. The Jazz’s performance in their first 2 games hasn’t really surprised me. READ MORE »

Flops are probably one of the most entertaining parts of basketball. Though every sport that has some aspect of fouling will undoubtedly have floppers; a flop in the NBA is when someone basically acts out a foul. There are some players that will go the extra-mile while flopping. And they will act out a legitimate foul in the most wildest of circumstances. For example READ MORE »

No doubt that this kid, Jeremy Lin, is the source for a lot of hype for the New York Knicks these days. In case you don’t know who or what I am talking about, Jeremy Lin is the New York Knicks rookie point guard; and despite his inexperience, he has already made quite a name for himself. Because of his performance in past games, he has generated a buzz that coined the phrase “Linsanity”. This little guy sure has pulled off quite a few unlikely moves. I, personally, haven’t really bought into the hype that this little guy has generated. Yes, I’ll admit that he has done some impressive moves; but he honestly looks like a high school player out there, and somehow those moves are working out for him! The kid could be blind-folded, with five 7-foot people guarding him, standing directly under the hoop, throw the ball up and by some divine power the ball will make it in the basket. He puts up the wildest shots and they somehow manage to go in. At this point, it looks like he’s surviving on lucky shots. Here are his top ten plays so far:
The Knicks last game was against the Cleveland Cavaliers, which they won with a rather high score of 120, to the Cavaliers 103. Carmelo Anthony and Jeremy Lin, who had 19 points, 5 rebounds, 13 assists, and 1 steal, both did very well. Carmelo scored 22 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists. The Cavaliers had a couple of high scorers, but who knows any of their players now that LeBron doesn’t play for them?
I think people are making a little too much out of how well Jeremy Lin has been doing, there are reports that there is a biography in the making. Good heavens, the kid is 23 years old! How long will the book be? 10 Pages? I’m anxious to see how will this little guy is going to perform in the future, if he can keep up with the hype and live up to people’s expectations.
