SORT BY Relevancy
Yesterday I talked more about the Eastern Conference and who I thought would make the 2014-15 NBA playoffs. To me, there is a three-tier system, with Cleveland, Chicago and Toronto at the top, Indiana, Washington and Charlotte in the middle, then the rest of the East will be... well, irrelevant. Today, I'll go over the West, which also has a three-team tier at the top, with the rest of the teams looking up at them. The Dallas Mavericks are the team to look for when it comes to sneaking into that upper-echilon of teams.
For the first time in what seems like forever, I'll be going over the NBA world when it comes to the 2014-15 season. Who should the top eight teams be in the Eastern and Western Conferences be, come playoff time? Is Cleveland just one of the top four or so teams in the East? Or with LeBron James and the shooters he will essentially bring with him, should they be the favorites? As far as the West is concerned, are there any new teams that could sneak up on the likes of San Antonio, Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Clippers?

In this episode of the JRNYMN Conference Call with Sean Pronger, brought to you by JRNYMN Wear and C3 Development & Representation, hockey analyst, broadcaster and Journeyman co-author Dan Murphy joins the call.
After 17 days on the road covering the Kings/Blackhawks series for Rogers Sportsnet, Dan shares his thoughts on the Western Conference Final and provides some unique insight into Darryl Sutter's press conferences. Sean and Dan also discuss the "surprises" from this year's playoffs - the Blues early exit and the Habs long run to name a few.
With Sean being a former Canuck, and Dan's work as the host of the Vancouver Canucks broadcasts, the guys talk about the many changes so far in Vancouver and look ahead to what changes may still arise. How will Trevor Linden and Jim Benning handle their new roles with the organization and who are the leading candidates to take over behind the bench? Listen in on the JRNYMN Conference Call with Sean Pronger and hear what the guys have to say!
In this episode of the JRNYMN Conference Call with Sean Pronger, brought to you by JRNYMN Wear and C3 Development & Representation, former Calgary Flames forward and 1989 Stanley Cup Champion Colin Patterson joins Sean on the call to reminisce and share stories.
After attending Clarkson University, Colin signed with the Flames as a free agent and made his NHL debut in 1983. Joining a team that was on its way to becoming a powerhouse in the Campbell Conference and NHL, he shut down the opposition's best offensive players throughout his 10 seasons in the league. The Flames lost a hard-fought series in the Stanley Cup Final to the Montreal Canadians in 1986, but in 1989, it was Calgary's turn to lift the Cup in victory.
Did you know that the Flames were the only team to defeat the Montreal Canadians on Montreal Forum ice and win the Stanley Cup? Colin not only discusses those two Finals and the "ghosts of the Forum", he also reveals the answer to a 25-yeal old mystery - who made the mistake of pranking Lanny McDonald on one of his worst days?
A great episode for hockey fans that remember the Smythe Division of the 1980's, you don't want to miss this episode of the JRNYMN Conference Call!
