My Epic, Hard-Hitting Interview With Anthony Tolliver

When I was in sixth grade, my basketball team played a weekend game against Anthony Tolliver‘s basketball team. I think we were the Bullets at that time, and we played in what I thought were pretty fancy reversible jerseys — one side was white, but most of the time we wore it on the black … More My Epic, Hard-Hitting Interview With Anthony Tolliver

Lost in Space

You know how I wrote that the Mavericks losing to Oklahoma City wasn’t the kind of loss that made me mad since the opposition was so good? No? This is the first and only post you’ll ever read because you got linked from Basketball Reference and you have no intention of reading anything else here? … More Lost in Space

Parsons Peaking, but Thunder Streaking

On a more ominous note since avoiding a 30-point loss is so comforting, the team slipped to 23-19 and into a tie … More That Was Ugly

Wednesday Night’s Alright (for Fighting)

You’ve got to hand it to the Thunder and Mavericks: without all the temper tantrums, blown fuses, and testosterone battles, Wednesday’s game would have offered very little in the way of a compelling story. On a night when the Mavericks rested all of their starters coming off a disheartening overtime loss 24 hours prior, the … More Wednesday Night’s Alright (for Fighting)
