SORT BY Relevancy
I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of trying to figure out the Indiana Pacers. Has there ever been a team that was such a power house for 80 percent of the season that has collapsed like these guys have? They are excruciating.
One more win gets them into the Eastern Conference finals, but they were nowhere near ready to put the hammer down Tuesday night in Game 5 against the Washington Wizards.
Marcin Gortat looked like a Polish Wilt Chamberlain in shooting 13-for-15 with 16 rebounds, and if he can do that again -- and get some help from Brazilian milk carton material Nene -- there is no reason why Washington cannot take care of business at home and force a Game 7.
But will the Wizards have a home court advantage? They are 0-2 in this round so far in the nation's capital, including their 65-point stinker in Game 3. Why is that?
We take a closer look in this interview with the Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan in D.C.
It is very easy to overlook the Washington Wizards. They are in contention for the title about as often as the Earth is under threat of alien invasion, they haven't had an outsized personality in the locker room since Gilbert Arenas was telling Javaris Crittendon to "Pick One," and they will undoubtedly be kept off national television next season because they just aren't sexy.
But you know what? They could very well contend for the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Many people make the snap judgement that they are too young. But aside from John Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter, they have a ton of experience. They lost Trevor Ariza over the summer, but they gained Paul Pierce, DeJuan Blair and Kris Humphries.
Which of those three will have the biggest impact? You might be surprised by my response in this interview with Danny and Grant on 106.7 radio in Washington, the Wizards' flagship station.
Julian Bravo and Aaron Walker react to the latest signings from NBA Free Agency.
Tonight's episode of Hoops Talk, presented by Tha Sports Junkies 101, will cover all the wild rumors, signings, trades, and stories of professional basketball. First, we will recap the recent NBA action at the 2014 Vegas Summer League. Coveted prospects Andrew Wiggins and Doug McDermott have been on fire in Vegas, and their play is worth examination. Second, after the twenty-eight man USA Basketball Roster was cut to nineteen on Monday, we will predict our final, twelve-man roster. Then, we will hash the various free agent signings, potential trades, and league rumors. This episode will feature a special guest at 8:00 PM: former Indiana Pacers forward Austin Croshere. Croshere played ten seasons in the NBA and is currently a Fox Sports Analyst for Indiana. The interview will conclude this episode of Hoops Talk.
I wish I could give you a brief synopsis of what is contained in this podcast, but that is not possible. I covered a heck of a lot of ground in this interview with Mark Malusis of CBS Sports radio, touching on coaching vacancies and playoff battles.
So in brief, here's what we hit upon:
_ The Lakers coaching vacancy, which if I had to guess who the next guy to hold the job will be, I'd go with Jeff Van Gundy. Just a hunch.
_ The Warriors vacancy. I think Lionel Hollins would be perfect for this job.
_ The Knicks vacancy. Phil Jackson was lucky he got a head start on Golden State.
_The Spurs-Blazers series. Did anyone get the license plate number of that truck that ran over the Blazers?
_ The Clippers-Thunder series. It's going 7.
_ The Heat-Nets series: First character test in 2 months coming for the Heat.
_ The Pacers-Wizards series. Nene needs to to be a Brazilian beast again.
Enjoy ... and Happy Mother's Day.
