Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, Playoffs,

LeBron James is better than usIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris speak on the LeBron James situation in which he initmated he was better than us regular folk. Maybe it was just sour grapes on his part after his Miami Heat lost to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, but still, LeBron should have some class. I don't know how Dwyane Wade is going to deal with this for several more seasons. Yeesh! Anyway, give it a LISTEN!

EndScore Report: In Your Face Wade, LeBron, and LeBron Haters

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, Playoffs,

LeBron James is getting criicized big-time, but that's the way it works, isn't it?In this edition of "In Your Face," Chris throws down on Dwyane Wade and LeBron James for allegedly mocking Dirk Nowitzki being sick for Game Four, which the Dallas Mavericks won. Of course, the mocking didn't phase Nowitzki as he and the Mavs then took Game Five to go up in the NBA Finals, three games to two versus the Miami Heat. DV goes after the LeBron haters that think he suddenly stinks. Sure LeBron has only had eight total points in ever fourth quarter during the championship series, but you can't sleep on the production before then that keep the Heat in the games. He had a triple-double in Game Five! If that's disappointing, ask NBA players how they would like to get a triple-double in a regular season game, let alone during the NBA Finals! HEAR IT!

EndScore Report: More on the NBA Finals

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: NBA, Playoffs,

Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki do battle for the NBA titleIt's entirely too hard not to speak about the NBA Finals once again in this edition of EndScore Report. DV and Chris are absolutely loving this match-up between the Dallas Mavericks led by Dirk Nowitzki and the Miami Heat led by Dwyane Wade. LeBron James has disappeared during the NBA Finals during the fourth quarter and he'll need to step it up in order for the Heat to take Game Six and force a final and deciding Game Seven. However, if players such as Jason Terry and J.J. Barea continue to produce, it may be an NBA title for the Mavs despite what the Heat do. LISTEN UP!

Dirk Nowitzki leads the Dallas MavericksIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris rain praises upon the NBA Finals, which have been vastly entertaining due to the closeness of all the games, in particular, Games Two to Four. LeBron James has disappeared of late, but Dwyane Wade has come up big. However, is there anyone more important to his team than Dirk Nowitzki who helped the Dallas Mavericks win Game Four despite the burden of being sick with over 100 degrees fever. The series is tied between the Mavs and the Miami Heat with Game Five possibly foreshadowing the eventual NBA title champion. LISTEN UP!

EndScore Report: Goodbye, Shaquille O’Neal

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Editorial, NBA, News,

Shaquille O'Neal retires and EndScore Report says goodbye.In this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris bid farewell to one of the most dominating big men that ever played in the NBA, Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq left an indelible mark on the Association and will be remembered as one of the more entertaining and humorous players ever. His four championships - three with the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant, as well as the one with the Miami Heat and Dwyane Wade - gives His Shaqness the credibility to be mentioned with greats such as Bill Russell and Hakeem Olajuwon. However, for my money, I'd take Wilt Chamberlain as the most dominating force in the middle. Anyway, give our goodbyes to Shaq a listen!

Shaquille O’Neal hangs up his kicks and retires

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, NBA, News,

Shaquille O'Neal retiresShaquille O'Neal, one of the most dominant big men to ever play in the NBA has called it a career, announcing his retirement via video. Shaq was a larger than life personality that transcended the world of basketball, becoming a loveable character that appeared in movies, hip hop videos, and all over the mainstream. However, he wasn't all fun and games as he led the Los Angeles Lakers, along with Kobe Bryant, to three consecutive NBA titles, as well as the Miami Heat, playing the role of second fiddle to Dwyane Wade. As a rookie, he became famous for tearing down backboards and the legend of Shaq grew exponentially. The NBA loses a magnificent player who will surely star on another stage.

EndScore Report: What Happens Now for the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers?

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Editorial, NBA, News,

Kobe Bryant, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett must be talking about offseason activitiesIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris look at what the two storied NBA franchises, the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, could possibly do now that both are out of the NBA Playoffs. The Celtics lost to LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and the rest of the Miami Heat, while the Lakers got swept by the Dallas Mavericks. In the case of the Lakers, would they trade two high-impact players to the Orlando Magic for Dwight Howard and an albatross contract such as Gilbert Arenas or Hedo Turkoglu's? A lot of it could depend on the head coach selection. Is there still another run for the Big Three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen? We break down our thoughts HERE!

Don’t Believe the New York Knicks and ‘Melo Hype, It’s a Sequel!

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Editorial, NBA, News,

Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire walking away in disappointmentThis must be a tough pill going down the throats of the New York Knicks and their fans as the team became victims of a Boston Celtics sweep, becoming the 2011 NBA Playoffs first victims. In the first two games (87-85 and 96-93 Celtics victories), the Knicks could have easily been the victors in both. However, in the end, it was the Celtics' championship pedigree and experience that helped them pull away and score just enough points to win. Emotionally, it had to be debilitating to come so close, but come up with the loss despite valiant efforts on the road.

NBA Playoffs: Eastern Conference Preview

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Editorial, NBA, Playoffs,

LeBron James leads the Miami Heat into the NBA PlayoffsThe 2011 NBA Playoffs kicks off on Saturday, April 16th with the Eastern Conference's top-seeded Chicago Bulls matching up against the eighth-seeded Indiana Pacers at 1PM ET on ESPN. It's appropriate that the Bulls start the NBA postseason since they are also the NBA's top-seeded team, earning homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs with a regular season record of 62-20. So, how do the Eastern Conference series shake out for all of the playoff participants? Peep the preview below.

1. Chicago Bulls (62-20) vs. 8. Indiana Pacers (37-45)

The Bulls (36-5 at home; 26-15 on the road) are led by MVP-favorite Derrick Rose, but certainly have more than the dynamic point guard to thank for the organization's stellar success this season. The Bull have a good mix of scorers (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer), defensive-minded big men (Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson) and solid role players (Ronnie Brewer, Kyle Korver). They were second overall in points allowed (91.3) and the new attitude of non-stop effort and defensive cohesiveness has a lot to do with new head coach, Tom Thibodeau, who has to be considered as the favorite Head Coach of the Year.

The Pacers (24-17 at home; 13-28 on the road) are almost a vagabond group that made the playoffs due to the overall weakness of the Eastern Conference as they are the only under-.500 team in the postseason. They made a spirited effort when assistant Frank Vogel was named interim head coach, going 20-18 and obviously made the playoffs. Danny Granger is the top talent in the group and while Darren Collison was a bit of a disappointment, other players stepped up their games, particularly Tyler Hansbrough, Josh McRoberts and Roy Hibbert. Rookie Paul George also showed flashes of big-time ability.

However, the Bulls will be too much for the Pacers who seem disjointed compared to the smooth-running machine that is the Bulls. Prediction: Bulls in four games.
