/ No Comments
NBA – The Cleveland Cavaliers manage to get a win against the visiting LA Clippers at home, but it took another extra 5 minutes before they can put away the visiting team in a 118 – 113 win in overtime.

The home team trailed for almost the entire game down by as much a double digit lead in every quarter before they manage to find a solution in the final quarter to extend the game into overtime where the home team finally gets their first lead of the game outscoring the visiting team and eventually gets the win.

LeBron James, who leads the leagues in playing minutes played another big minutes against the Clippers with a grand total of 46 minutes to lead all scorers with 39 points, 14 rebounds and 6 assist to extend the Cavaliers winning streak into 4 straight wins and now starting to climb up in the East Standing after struggling early this season.

The defending Eastern Conference Champion is now showing some sign of championship caliber after winning their last four games, three of them are away and one at home, is this the start of something good for the Cavs? Are the players starting to gel with each other? Let’s see, in the upcoming games if they can continue their winning streak?

Although the Cavaliers wins their 4 straight game in a row the clear problem with this team is that they start the game slow, trailing for almost the entire game before showing some life in the final quarter and poor defense.

They must start the game strong not playing catch for the entire game because it will consume more energy for their team to come back and put a win? Lucky for them LeBron James and Mr. 4th quarter, Kyle Korver always lift the Cavs in close games.

For now the win is a good sign for the Cleveland Cavaliers as many basketball experts are beginning to count them out in the Eastern Conference as a legit contender while believing that the Boston Celtics is the team to beat in the East?

NBA – 6 time NBA Champion Michael Jordan dubbed as the Greatest Player of All Time has played an NBA career in 1,072 total games in just 15th NBA Season, he retired at the age of 40 as part of the Washington Wizards, but his glory days will be remembered as part of the Chicago Bulls in the 1990’s where they built a dynasty, winning 6 NBA Championships in 6 NBA Finals appearances.

Although Michael Jordan could have played more games throughout his NBA Career but his retirement in 1993 – 1994 and 1999 – 2001 NBA Season has prevented him from achieving more in his NBA career? He could won more title? More MVP’s and perhaps a much  higher position or even hold the top spot of All-time scoring list?

Meanwhile, LeBron James, who entered the league at age 18 has already tied Michael Jordan in career games with 1,072 games at age 32 in 15th NBA Season. James will surely pass Jordan in terms of games played and while still in his prime James could possibly add another Championship in his finger, MVP’s or other achievements before he retired?

Both players are always in debate, conversation about who’s the NBA Greatest Player of All-time? Some are voting for Jordan and there’s also for LeBron, Although Jordan has the advantage when it comes to championship comparison, but James is considered as the more talented player because of his ability to play the all-around position and makes his teammates much better.

While James is still playing the comparison between this two will never stop till James retired and that's the time that fans will decide on who is the real GOAT between the two?

Look at the comparison between Michael Jordan and LeBron James in 1,072 games played in the NBA:

Michael Jordan

Wins: 706
Loss: 366
Career points: 32, 292 (4th All-time)
Rebounds: 6,672
Assist: 5,633
Steal: 2,514

LeBron James

Loss: 356
Career points: 29,105 (7th All-time)
Rebounds: 7,788
Assist: 7,561
Steal: 1,765

At this point Michael Jordan has already won 6 NBA Titles and 5 MVP’s while LeBron James has 3 NBA Titles and 4 MVP’s the only advantage of James is that he is still playing and will have the chance to further his achievements? Now, who do you think will end as the Greatest Player of All-time?

/ No Comments
NBA – The defending Eastern Conference Champion Cleveland Cavaliers is currently struggling in the early season of the 2017 – 2018 NBA Season. The Cavaliers drop their third straight game against the Knicks, it was their 4th loss in their last 5 games.

The latest loss stun the teams home crowd in their own home court at Quickens Loans Arena against the struggling New York Knicks with 1 – 3 record before the game. 

Many would think that the home team will easily passed the visiting team, but it seems it’s the other way around.

The Knicks dominated the Cavaliers from start to finish even though that the home team had their own mini run to close the gap but it wasn’t enough to stop the Knicks from winning the game. 

Tim Hardaway Jr. and Kristaps Porzingis lead the Knicks in scoring with 34 pts and 32 pts. Respectively, while Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers leads in scoring with 22 pts. It was the second straight game that Love leads in scoring.

It is amazing that the Cavs have been defeated by the teams where they are definitely favored of winning, but instead they were dominated and blown out in the game, unlikely to the teams that are 50-50 chance of winning like the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks where they competed to the end and wins the game.

Cavs suffered their first loss of the season to the Orlando Magic in a blown out fashion 114 - 93, the second loss is to Brooklyn Nets 112 – 107, the third loss is into the hands of the New Orleans Pelicans 123 – 101 and now to the New York Knicks 114 – 95.

Even though it was too early to say that the defending Eastern Conference Champion is no way close of being the best team in the East in their current situation, it is still early to judge the team till halfway of the season? Just like LeBron James said in an interview were just fine? 

Cavs recent loss drop their record in East Standing with 3 wins and 4 loss in the seven games played will they finally find the solution and rebound from the struggle? are the Cavaliers latest struggles meant anything? What do you think?

Dwyane Wade Decided to Back Down His Starting Role with the Cavaliers

/ No Comments
NBA – 3 time Miami Heat NBA Champion and 2006 NBA Finals MVP Dwyane Wade has come to a decision that will put himself in a new role as part of the Cavaliers bench player after struggling in his first 3 games as part of the Cavs starting five.

Reports said that Wade approached his Cavs coach Tyron Lue and requested to remove him from the starting five to switch places with then starting shooting guard JR Smith. 

Smith was part of the original starting five of the Cavaliers along with Tristan Thompson before Wade join the team this off-season. Smith becomes frustrated after learning that he will be replaced by D-Wade as the new starting shooting guard.

Wade has been a starter throughout his NBA career, especially when he still part of the Miami Heat for 13th season and Chicago Bulls for 1 season. But his role with the Cavaliers ends the era of being a starter and begins the new role of a bench player.

Wade is still a good player up to this day he can still manage to score double figure maybe he need more time adjusting his role with his new team? Although he is entering his 15th season and obviously age and past injury slowly declining his performance, but still a reliable player when it comes to experience and intelligence in the game of basketball.

Maybe later this 2017 – 2018 NBA Season Wade will regain his starting role with the Cavaliers until the coaching management finds the right fit for the team that could send their starting five a potential Championship contender?

Meanwhile, another part of the Cavs starting five is also missing its service Derrick Rose is still out for the next two games after suffering sprained ankle.

Junmar Fajardo Joins the Elite Group of most MVP Winners in the PBA

/ No Comments
PBA – San Miguel Beermen center June Mar Fajardo made history on Fridays 2017 PBA Leo Awards night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum as he becomes the only player in the league to win four consecutive MVP’s in just four straight PBA season.

Fajardo who is just 27 years old and only in his fifth year in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) has already won 4 MVP’s which tied him with 2 other PBA hall of fame.

Throughout the PBA History there are only two players in the league that holds the most MVP award winners before the 2017 Leo Awards. PBA legends and Hall of Fame former San Miguel Beermen Ramon “El Presidente” Fernandez the first PBA player to win 4 MVP’s which he won in 1982, 1984, 1986 and 1988 and former Purefoods Hotdogs superstar Alvin “The Captain” Patrimonio the second player to do so in 1991, 1993, 1994 and 1997 with 4 MVP’s also.

Even though June Mar Fajardo is the 3rd PBA player to win 4 MVP’s, it was special compare to two other PBA Legends because Junmar only done it in just five PBA Season in four straight years (2014 – 2017) at a very young age and will have greater opportunity and chance to win his 5th MVP or so in the next couple of years and becomes the only player in the league with the most MVP awards in PBA History?

Will June Mar Fajardo go down in the PBA history books as the PBA most MVP award winner? Maybe if he will stay healthy and continue his dominance in the paint at 6’11” it’s not possible for him to win his 5th MVP next year or even 6th MVP in the next couple of years?

Who is the Best Player in the NBA Today?

NBA – Open court debates on who is now the current best player in the league? Host Ernie Johnson asked five casts of the show, which are all former NBA superstars in their own era, 2000 MVP winner and 4 time NBA Champion Shaquille O’Neal, 3 time NBA Champion Kevin McHale, 1993 MVP winner Charles Barkley, 2 time NBA Champion Isiah Thomas and Dennis Scott on whom they think is the best player of the league today?

Photo Credit to:

For almost a decade, there is only one man who dominated the NBA, he began his reign when he won his first NBA Regular Season MVP in 2009 and was quickly followed in 2010 missed the 2011 MVP after switching teams and regained the award in 2012 and 2013 when he was crowned a back to back NBA Champion. He went home to give his hometown their first ever NBA Championship in franchise history.

He is now a 4 time MVP, 3 time NBA Champion, 3 time NBA Finals MVP and on the verge of reaching his 8th straight NBA Finals appearance if he becomes healthy in the upcoming 2017 – 2018 NBA Season? He's none other than the face of the league the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.

In Basketball LeBron James is unstoppable breaking every record in NBA statistic in point’s rebounds, assist. One of only two players who is in the list of top 25 NBA players in scoring and assist and has not done yet of achieving the all-time leader in scoring before his time ends and became the Greatest of All-time?.

The only problem of James career is his NBA Finals record where he won 3 NBA Titles and 5 loss where many critics believe that he will never be the GOAT against Michael Jordan who has a perfect 6 out of 6 NBA Finals Championships.

And the recent loss of James and the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State Warriors put him down of being the GOAT and possibly not the best player in the league in today’s basketball generation?

According to Dennis Scott he believes that the 2017 NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant is now the best player in the NBA? Because of his dominance on both ends of the floor when it comes to defense and offense compare to LeBron James.

While the four remaining cast of the shows, Shaq, Charles, Kevin and Isiah all agreed that LeBron James is still the best player of the league, he is the most complete player, he makes his team better, he can score, pass, assist and also a good defender and James has also the less help when it comes to teammates contribution compared to Durant who has a great teammate like Stephen Curry a 2- time MVP, sharp shooter Klay Thompson and a defensive specialist Draymond Green who made his job a lot easier.

Overall LeBron James remains the best player of the NBA according to the majority decision of the Open Court cast while Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard are tied for the 2nd best player in the league?

Who do you think guys in the best player in the NBA today?

LeBron James Might Miss NBA Season Opener against Boston?

/ No Comments
NBA – Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James aggravated his recently injured left ankle that he suffered during the training camp and now after playing his very first preseason game against the young Chicago Bulls last Tuesday (US TIME) at Quickens Loan Arena in Cleveland, James is now experiencing a sore left ankle and was ruled out to play for the Cavaliers preseason finale against the Orlando Magic.

James debuted his first game against the Bulls since the injury happens, he leads the Cavs in scoring with a game high of 17 points, but obviously out of rhythm or shape after causing too many turnovers for the entire game and later caused their team's 4th straight loss of the preseason despite the presence of James on the court.

The reports of James of missing the final game of the preseason also included the possibility of missing the NBA Season Opening game on October 17, this would be the very first time that James will miss the season opener throughout his NBA Career.

The possibility of facing his former sidekick Kyrie Irving and his rival team Boston Celtics is now in questions about James current conditions? It would be a very exciting and interesting game if James could play facing his former sidekick in a clash that probably the preview of the Eastern Conference Finals matchup?

But in the long run the Cavs management will not put their franchise player LeBron James in a bad situation that could lead to serious injury? After all, it’s just a regular season and their target is comes playoff times where James is much needed and through the NBA Finals to face the Warriors for the 4th straight year?

So don’t get surprised if LeBron James will not play the Season opener against Boston and perhaps miss several games before playing again to fully heal his injury.

But don’t count some other teams that already starting to build their own super team as the 2017 – 2018 NBA Season is about to start by the last week of October, these teams will not wait to see the Warriors building their dynasty as these teams will try to stop and even try to dethrone the defending champion?

Here is the list of NBA team that a legit treat for the defending champion Golden State Warriors:

Western Conference

1. Houston Rockets – The Rockets just added from a trade the 9 times All-star Chris Paul from the LA Clippers to upgrade their roster, Paul joined last year runner up in MVP James Harden, Nenê, Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza and the rest of the Rockets to further their chance in beating the Warriors?

2. San Antonio Spurs – The Spurs has been always been a contender every year and perhaps for almost a decade since the era of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker. The Spurs did not make any major changes in their lineup, but still they will rely in their new superstar player Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge. Pau Gasol, Danny Green and veterans Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker.

3. Oklahoma City Thunder – The Thunder just loss Kevin Durant in the 2016 Free Agency that caused the team from not reaching a much higher places in the 2016 – 2017 NBA post season and eventually eliminated early in the playoffs. But this time the 2017 off season they acquired two NBA Superstar from a trade Paul George from the Pacers and Carmelo Antony of Knicks to form a “Big Three” including the reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook. The addition of George and Melo joining Westbrook improve the Thunder’s chances of beating the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals if they possibly meet in the West Finals?

Eastern Conference

1. Cleveland Cavaliers – The Cavs is still the favorite in the East and more likely to reach the NBA Finals for the 4th consecutive time? Even though Kyrie Irving leaves the Cavs, he was immediately replaced some legit superstar young and old with the likes of Isiah Thomas, Derrick Rose and the recent addition of Dwyane Wade to form their own super team alongside with LeBron James, Kevin Love, JR Smith, Tristan Thomson and the rest of the Cavs.

2. Boston Celtics – The Celtics has almost completely change their roster, leaving only one player from last season Al Halford. Horford will be joining other superstar players with the likes of Gordon Hayward from the Jazz and Kyrie Irving from the Cavs trade. The addition, Irving makes the Celtics a legit treat for the defending Eastern Conference Champion Cleveland Cavaliers?

Which team will be a legit treat for the Warriors in the West and in the East? Let’s wait and see till the 2017 – 2018 Season begins in October.
