Never to Late (Buffalo 24 – New England 25)

Football Season Has Officially Begun!

Bills Patriots Football

Many thought this would be an easy game for the Pats, then again is anything ever easy in the game of football? One thing I love about football is that its unpredictable, the top team last year could be the flop team next year it’s simple as that. Monday night football showcased the Buffalo Bills vs. The New England Patriots; The Bills came out hard with amazing defense rushing Brady at every chance. Watching the game I was kind of shocked to see New England struggle but Brady kept on and started to show signs of his true greatness charging down the field with short passes hitting heavy on the corners. Brady hit Watson with 2 TD passes in the 4th quarter in the span of 1:16, it was truly spectacular! If you didn’t see the game then shame on you, you missed one of the best games this season.

Celtics Sweet Sixteen

nba_a_pierce_412

The Boston Celtics have reached a 16 game winning streak yesterday with a victory over the Atlanta Hawks 88-85. The Boston Celtics have been tearing through this season showing a confidence greater than last year. I cant front I didn’t think the big three would come back with so much focus, discipline and hunger, and I’m glad to see I was wrong.

Garnett scored 10 of his 18 points in the 4th when the C’s needed it most. Atlanta’s Joe Johnson missed a late free throw that would have tied it, leaving Ray Allen to make two free throws in the final seconds to win the epic game. The Celtics lead the league and are at a franchise best 24-2.

NBA 2K9

I have been playing basketball games since I can remember. I came up loving EA Sports and the NBA Live Series until I discovered NBA 2K on the Sega Dreamcast and switched over. NBA 2K9 keeps the tradition alive of a “true basketball” game, I’m not a big online cat im more about building my franchise. If you wanna run and gun and play with friends and not take shit too serious go pick up live, if you about ya biz and want an authentic sports title get 2K. Presentation to me is a must and to this day the best presentation I seen in a game is from 2K in “ESPN NFL 2K5”. NBA 2K9 does a damn good job keeping close though, at the end of every quarter you are treated to highlights of the top moments in the prior quarter. The music during these highlights is nothing short of epic sometimes I forget and think im watching TNT! That’s how captivating it is! The game play is stellar, the shot stick has been redefined and the overall feel is fluid. The game is seamless, meaning that you rarely have to press start to do shit, you can make subs, timeouts and etc all on the fly. Association 2.0 is where it’s at; this is the meat and potatoes. The new NBA.COM feature keeps you up to date with stats, injuries, milestones, awards, rumor mill etc. I think this feature is incredible now you don’t have to go through multiple screens to find info on teams or what happening in ya association cause its right in front of u now. When I created my player and started with the Knicks it felt more intimate than ever before, players talk to the press, discuss there delight or bitterness, shits crazy. I really can’t say enough about this game if you a true ball head give this game a chance fo real.

Michael Jordan Greatest Man/Greatest Moments

I cant even write for this man, jus look at his greatness please. MORE POSTS TO COME ON THE GREATEST BASKETBALL PLAYER EVER.

NBA on NBC

The NBA on NBC was a weekly presentation of National Basketball Association games on the National Broadcasting Company television network from 1955 to 1962, and again from 1990 to 2002. The NBA on NBC succeeded the NBA on CBS. During NBC’s partnership with the NBA, the league rose to unprecedented popularity for the sport, with ratings surpassing the days of Magic Johnson and Larry Bird in the mid-eighties.

I don’t remember a lot of fond memories of my childhood but I do remember some. My father the greatest man I ever met loved basketball and that reciprocated to me. In the early 90’s when the NBA left CBS to NBC many didn’t think the move was right. That was clearly wrong, the NBA never seen revenue like they did from 1990-2002 the span in which NBA on NBC lasted. The way Bob Costas did the intro for games, the overview of the skyline outside the arena, Marv Albert quotes, it was beautiful. I watched Jordan clinch many a playoff berth, I watched Clyde finally validate his greatness and I seen Kobe 3peat. I know cats are like what about SHAQ!!! He sick also but these are some of my memories and I do agree SHAQ is sick! I think back to Sundays with my pops watching triple headers, him with his Miller high life me with my Kool-aid. Just listen to the theme shits nostalgic like a muthafucka!
