2010 NBA Mock Draft: And the Number One Pick Is…

Posted: 11th May 2010 by Blake Mehigan in NBA
Obvious. On May 18th, a team will land an incredibly talented player. It's called the lottery, and there is no doubt about who the best player in the draft is. John Wall. Now the second-best player is, without a doubt, Evan Turner. But Wall is the prized piece. A team could be potentially turned around completely with their pick. The team probably hoping the most to get that top pick is New Jersey, ...
Sacramento Kings rookie Tyreke Evans was named Rookie of the Year for the 2009-2010 season yesterday. The Memphis product had a season that may not have been expected by many, and was an early candidate for Rookie of the Year. With the unexpected play of Evans along with Brandon Jennings, the two appeared to be clear competitors all season long for the prestigious award won by Mike Miller, Damon Stoudemire ...

The Stigma Of Sacramento: A King Size Issue

Posted: 22nd March 2010 by Blake Mehigan in NBA
I have lived in the Sacramento area my entire life. It wasn't until I turned 21 that I could truly appreciate what this city has to offer though. I hated living in the suburbs, yearning for a life in a city like San Francisco, and complaining about how there is nothing to do and how boring life is in the 'burbs. The truth is, Sacramento is not a bad place to live. ...

Sacramento Kings: To Tank or Not to Tank?

Posted: 16th March 2010 by Blake Mehigan in NBA
Here is exhibit A for a reason to tank the rest of the year. Any respectable, upstanding person would beg to differ though. Fight to the end! Give it all ya' got! Put your best foot forward! Tell that to the New Jersey Nets. Seven wins? As GOB Bluth would say: C'mon! They are a bad team, but not THAT bad. The reason I mention this is because just recently the Kings slid ...

NBA’s Top 10 Point Guards in the Game Today

Posted: 9th March 2010 by Blake Mehigan in NBA
Dwayne Wade is arguably one of the best players in the NBA today. Its hard to peg down what position he plays, as he can play a little point guard and a little two guard. At this point I think it is safe to say he is a two guard, who handles the ball. Wade is averaging more assists than most of the league's point guards, so does that constitute ...

NBA Trade Deadline: Five Blockbuster Rumors That Have Legs

Posted: 16th February 2010 by Blake Mehigan in NBA
Caron Butler appears puzzled. Perhaps he had just been informed he was moving a thousand miles away. He began the season playing on a lottery bond team and will end it on a playoff bound team. Not just a playoff team, but a team that could very well make a push for the NBA Finals this May. But I'm already getting ahead of myself. Many NBA analysts say that it takes one ...

2010 NBA All-Star Weekend Predictions

Posted: 13th February 2010 by Blake Mehigan in NBA
For the first time in 12 years Kobe Bryant will not play in the NBA All-Star game, due to an ankle injury he sustained. Despite not having one of the best player in the world playing in the All-Star game, there will be plenty of other things to watch. Personally, I feel the All-Star game is not the main attraction of All-Star weekend. My favorite part is watching the celebrity ...
