Is LeBron James the most composed player in the NBA?

For a long time there was this view that LeBron James isn’t clutch. Yet, yesterday, he had the key three pointer, steal and rebound to win the game. I’ve always thought LeBron’s clutch.

I’m always very cautious about clutch statistics because you look at these numbers where Paul George is 2 in 32 when it comes to game winning shots, yesterday he shot an air ball with the game on the line. I think we can all agree that George doesn’t seem like the same player in the last minute of a game. You have to acknowledge that Tom Brady always feels clutch. I do think there are players who thrive or at least maintain in those situations. It’s the same with Derek Jeter who was just unflappable at the end of an innings.

What a night for LeBron!

28 points, seven rebounds, six assists, no turnovers and plus 30 differential. That’s just the second half!! That may be the greatest stat line ever for an NBA player in terms of production and efficiency in playoff history.

All I hear is that Russell Westbrook has no talent around him and so has to take those shots. Did you see what LeBron was running with in the second half? Channing Frye, Deron Williams, Kyle Korver, J.R Smith and Tristan Thompson. Not exactly world beaters.

For LeBron it wasn’t just a compilation of numbers, once again he played more minutes than any other player. In fact even on his own team only J.R was even close with 31 minutes compared to Lebron’s 45.

LeBron and Matthew Delebadova took the record breaking Warriors to six games a couple years ago and you’re telling me Westbrook plays with nobody? Continue reading “What a night for LeBron!”

Adrian Peterson is the NFL’s Russell Westbrook

The NFL has a Russell Westbrook, his name is Adrian Peterson. It’s been confirmed that he is going to sign with the Saints I don’t know why people care. To me, he’s the most overrated football player over the last 20 years in the league.

Like Westbrook he has an MVP. Both of them didn’t deserve it.

The Saints already have a running back named Mark Ingram, who’s coming off a career year so I don’t really understand the move from the teams point of view. Adrian Peterson won his MVP and in actual fact he was only worth a point with and without him. How many points do you think Brady and Ryan are worth? This is what I’m always saying about Westbrook. You fall in love with his triple doubles but with all of his turnovers and selfishness he isn’t good enough to win a title. Continue reading “Adrian Peterson is the NFL’s Russell Westbrook”

All about the NBA as the first round gets decided

Should the Clippers dump Blake Griffin?

I’ve been pretty good at recognising when certain players are going to become stars. I never bought into Melo and I never bought into Blake Griffin. I used to call him the best volleyball player in the league because he can’t shoot the ball from further than nine feet.

I watched the Clippers against the Jazz last night and it was clear that Chris Paul was the best player on the floor. It wasn’t even close. I know that he might not be beloved across the league but I don’t care. Hell, Michael Jordan punched teammates yet they all jumped on his bandwagon.

All of about the NBA as the playoffs get underway

The Kawhi Leonard love fest

 

Kawhi is an excellent player and I’m really excited to watch him progress as he continues his career. However, here’s what I know. In the next round he won’t be the best player in the series James Harden will be. If he gets past the Rockets then he won’t be the best player in the next round, Durant will be. Even if he gets through that test he won’t be the best player in the finals, LeBron will be.

We need to slow down on this whole ‘Kawhi is the best player in the league’ thing. How many times in his ‘illustrious’ career has scored more than 40 points? The answer is once. What do you think his career high in assists is? It’s on seven. Since he’s come into the league, LeBron James, the actual best player in the league, has had more than that 213 times.

Predicting all the first round 2017 NBA playoff match ups

It’s crunch time people. No more sitting out games, this is the time of year that really matters in the NBA.


1 Boston vs Bulls 8.

To me this is the big upset watch. Now I know Chicago can’t shoot the ball all that affectively but they have the experience on their side and a toughness that is up there with the best. Dwayne Wade who’s won titles, Rondo who knows that team very well and arguably they have the best player in the series, Jimmy Butler.  I think this goes to seven games! I don’t have the guts to say that the Bulls come out on top but I think it will be very close. In the end though with their coach, defence and deeper bench, Boston will win it.

LeBron James and the Cavaliers will make the 2017 finals, don’t worry

We hyperventilated about the Dallas Cowboys all year. They’re this, they’re that, but nothing happened in the playoffs when it counted and New England went on to win another Superbowl. We tend to do this about regular seasons.

In the NFL I kind of understand it because year to year there are so many changes. If you just look at the NFC South, Carolina is great one year, then Atlanta gets to a Superbowl and two years before that the Saints were the team to beat. In the NBA, you can pretty much guarantee that the Warriors and the Cavaliers are making it to the finals.

You might hyperventilate about the Cavaliers and how they haven’t had great form and they’re missing games.. To me the mirror in the bathroom has been fogged and we just can’t see clearly. Continue reading “LeBron James and the Cavaliers will make the 2017 finals, don’t worry”
