TweetLeBron James is many things to many different people. To the hardcore fan he’s one of the most talented basketball players ever, with unlimited potential and an ever-evolving legacy. To the casual observer of sports he stands for everything we despise about the young, self-entitled, mega-rich athlete. To others it’s a sad reminder of what […]

Game 2 Recap–Into the Inferno http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/03/game-2-recap-into-the-inferno/ Fri, 03 Jun 2011 15:56:59 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/03/game-2-recap-into-the-inferno/

TweetHere’s what I tweeted after Dwyane Wade nailed a corner three right in front of the Maverick’s bench last night to extend the lead to 15 points with only half a quarter to play: “And it seems like they're [Mavericks] falling apart mentally...how can all these dunks and dagger shots not do that? SERIES OVER”. […]

Mega Finals Preview-Exercising the Demons http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/31/mega-finals-preview-exercising-the-demons/ http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/31/mega-finals-preview-exercising-the-demons/#comments Tue, 31 May 2011 19:43:33 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/31/mega-finals-preview-exercising-the-demons/

TweetI’m a Heat hater. I hate the way Dwyane Wade acted the part of general manager and convinced LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join him in Miami. I hate the way the trio held a championship celebration before a single game was even played. I hate Pat Riley because he’s a douche. I hate […]

YOU JUST GOT DIRKED ON! http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/24/you-just-got-dirked-on/ Tue, 24 May 2011 18:30:36 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/24/you-just-got-dirked-on/

TweetSomebody get Kevin Durant and friends some towels, because they just got Dirked on—hard. This series isn’t over—technically speaking—but coming back from a 15 point deficit to win in overtime is a feat accomplished only once in the past 15 years of playoff basketball. Did you see Kevin Durant in his postgame conference? His body […]

State of a Depressed Basketball Fan http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/20/state-of-a-depressed-basketball-fan/ Sat, 21 May 2011 02:26:27 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/20/state-of-a-depressed-basketball-fan/

TweetI would like to take this opportunity to formally announce my entrance onto the Oklahoma City Thunder’s bandwagon. After a nut-crushingly brutal near-sweep at the hands of arguably my least favorite sports team ever, my Boston Celtics were knocked out in gut splattering fashion. Without a “dog in the fight” I feel the need to […]

How Boston’s Big Three Changed My Life http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/12/how-bostons-big-three-changed-my-life/ Thu, 12 May 2011 17:27:50 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/12/how-bostons-big-three-changed-my-life/

TweetI haven’t always been a basketball fan. In fact, I haven’t been a devotee of the game for very long at all. It all started in 2007, when three of the most talented ballers in the NBA sacrificed part of themselves to come together for one final run in the twilight of their careers. It […]

Playoff Ponderings http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/12/playoff-ponderings/ Thu, 12 May 2011 17:25:25 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/12/playoff-ponderings/

TweetEvery postseason has a theme. An identity. A motif. That term paper you wrote about The Great Gatsby in 11th grade might come in handy after all. In 2008, we had the resurgence: two all-time franchises reclaiming their glory once again. In 2009, it was the year of LeBron as James grabbed his first MVP […]

TweetEvery Wednesday I’ll compile a list of the top eight playoff performers from eighth to first. When the Finals are decided I’ll pick my MVP for the postseason; an award I absolutely think should exist in addition to Finals MVP. So I was two days late, sue me. I hate when real life gets in […]

Day 2 Recap–Chris Paul is perfect http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/18/day-2-recap-chris-paul-is-perfect/ Mon, 18 Apr 2011 15:19:08 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/18/day-2-recap-chris-paul-is-perfect/

TweetI thought it had a chance to be one of the best NBA playoffs ever—it’s definitely living up to, and exceeding expectations. The average margin of victory of all game ones was 6.1; not even I expected that. New Orleans blasted the defending champs, an eight seed stunned a one seed, and nearly every game […]

TweetHow awesome are the NBA playoffs? Seriously, the Pacers almost shocked the world, Dwight Howard accomplished something only Hakeem Olajuwon and um, Bonzi Wells can claim to have done, and the 76er’s nearly capped off an epic comeback against the Heat. And if you needed one more scrap of evidence, my father—who never, ever, ever […]

TweetTonight concludes the most exciting, most watchable, and all around best NBA regular season ever. By my count, 21 teams made exceedingly great television—either because they were title contenders, they were scrappy underdogs, offensive savants (I’m looking at you Golden State), possessed must-watch athletes (what’s up Blake Griffin?), or were grand experiments in basketball team […]
