Kitchen Too Hot for the Heat

Posted: 13 June, 2014 at 1:21 pm   /   NBA, Sports

It’s over. The Miami Heat look old. The Heat players look older than the other old guys, some team called the San Antonio Spurs. Dwayne Wade  has turned into Dwayne Fade.

A Texas-Sized Whipping

Posted: 12 June, 2013 at 2:56 pm   /   NBA, Sports

Nothing from nothing leaves nothing. The Miami Heat received what they put out in Game 3 of the NBA Finals: a blank check they could not cash in after an embarrassing 36-point beatdown at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs. . It was nice to see you. Now it’s time to say good-bye. Thanks […]

Posted: 24 April, 2013 at 6:40 pm   /   NBA

Mike Brown must be a happy man today. He should be. After being relieved of his duties as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers five games into the 2012-13 season, Brown has 20 million reasons to flash that wide, charismatic smile of his. I wonder if the city of Cleveland is as happy as […]
