It’s Melo Time

By Josh Kramer

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. New York Knicks basketball relived the glory days of the early 1970s during the 1990s.  The best was when they made the NBA Finals in both 1994 and 1999.  The worst times for the Knicks during the 1990s were declared “Miller Time.”  Now this had nothing to do with Miller High Life.  It dealt with the villain, Reggie Miller, stealing games away from the New York Knicks during the postseason.  With Miller in the broadcast booth these days, the thought of “Miller Time” has been extinct for nearly a decade.

There is a new time now in New York.  And this one has a much happier ring than “Miller Time.”  No it is not “Linsanity,” though that is joyous occasion for Knicks fans as well.  It is the recent emergence of “Melo Time.” Continue reading

Food for Thought 12-27-2011

By Josh Kramer

The NBA is back.  We are entering the final week of the NFL regular season.  And we are on the verge of some BCS football.  It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.  Here are the items that have caught my attention.

Orton’s day in the sun?

-How many of you have ever been fired from a job?  I am assuming the vast majority of you have.  And for those of you who have been let go from your job, how many of you have wanted the opportunity to extract some revenge?  The chance to outdo your former company on a sale.  Or something to that degree?  Well for Kyle Orton, he will get just that chance come next Sunday.  Orton will have the chance to hit his former employer (the Denver Broncos) where it hurts.

It has been another wild past couple of days.  So many major headlines.  So much exciting action.  Here are the items that have caught my attention.

Mr. Dallas

I am still utterly shocked by the results of Sunday night’s game 6 of the NBA Finals.  The MonStars were defeated handily by the Mavericks.  How often outside of the movies do the good guys actually get the best of the bad guys?  I am by no means a Mavericks fan.  But as I have said many times before, there are sports fans, and then there are fans of the Miami Heat.  Therefore, I was happy with the outcome.

Dallas takes Game 6, wins first title in franchise history

On Sunday night, all NBA fanatics outside of Heat fans had one common rooting interest: Go Mavericks. For me personally, this was definitely the case, and I was riding the bandwagon all the way to the end. Just don’t let the Heat win a championship, that was all I was praying for. Thankfully, I got my prayer, and the Mavericks delivered in a big way Sunday night. Continue reading

It is another Monday in the wide world of sports.  Another great week has passed.  But we have a great week to look forward too.  Here are the items you should be keeping an eye out  for this week.

5.  Can you imagine the celebration that is going to ensue in Dallas?  Mark Cuban has stayed quite the entire playoffs.  He deserves this moment.  Very well deserved for a franchise that he brought into the spotlight and relevance in general.  Also the majority of the country is smiling.  Good defeated evil.  The Miami celebration will have to wait at least one more year.

NBA Finals: Game 2, Snapshot Preview

By Josh Kramer

To the disdain of nearly the entire country, Miami handled the Dallas Mavericks in game one with relative ease in front of a crazed South Beach Crowd.  Sadly, I must state that tonight is the beginning of the end for the Dallas Mavericks.

A good friend recently told me that you there are two types of friends in present day:  Your normal sports fans and those who like the Miami Heat.  And I have to admit, though a bit of an overstatement, it is not that far-fetched.  Since last July, the Heat have taken on the role as the NBA’s version of the MonStars.  They have been a villainous figure that the majority of the country has rooted against all year long.  Well I hate to say it, the bad guys not only will win tonight, but they will win the series.

“Western Conference Finals Predictions”

Dirk Nowitzki (pictured above) has been nothing short of phenomenal in this year's playoffs. Can the future first ballot Hall of Famer get the Mavericks back to the NBA Finals?

The matchup to decide the Wild Wild West will finally get underway tonight.  No I am not referring to the NHL’s crazy Western Conference.  I am talking about the extraordinarily deep NBA Western Conference.  It is a 3/4 matchup.  Not too many people predicted these 2 to square off for a trip to the Finals.  And that is fine.  It still a great all around matchup.
