With Dwight Howard continuing his Superman shtick, the heirs of the Superman creators finally decided to put the issue to rest (at least to anyone who knows what the Siegel & Schuster Society does) and declare Shaquille O’Neal the true Superman of the NBA. Of course, Shaq declared this already last year in the short [...]
This post will be updated as the week goes on: The tweet: Dwyane Wade forgot about his playoff diet: Warm chocolate cookies at night. Bommmmmm He included this picture of the cookies:Chocolate chipI guess, after a tough loss which they seemingly had in the bag, even a superstar just needs some comfort food.
The Blazers outscored the Phoenix Suns 35-28 in the fourth quarter to pull off the 105-100 upset — and Portland did it without their superstar Brandon Roy. Since every other home team won Game 1, this is by default the shocker of the postseason. But besides maybe the Cavaliers losing their first game, this would [...]

The Bucks played tremendously better in the second half and outscored the Hawks 52-40, but the 22-point first half deficit was just too [...]
Closing thoughts: Not a great start to the NBA playoffs, but not a terrible one either. This game ended up closer than I thought it would be, but the Cavs never let this game get TOO close towards the end. Derrick Rose was dominant, and the Cavs had no answer for him. Perhaps LeBron guards [...]
