Nuggets extend streak to 14, not a soul outside Denver notices

The Denver Nuggets won their franchise record 14 consecutive game last night in dramatic fashion over the Philadelphia 76ers. With the Heatles currently owning the 2nd best win streak in NBA history, nobody outside the Rockies seem to notice or care. Last night's win was a straight up robbery, however.

The Liberty Ballers were up 5 points with 14 seconds to go and lost in regulation. Think about that. Former #2 pick Evan Turner (sixers would have had Cousins if I was GM then) missed both freebies to seal the game, and Damien Wilkins committed a sin fouling a three point jump shooter at that point in the game

Great stuff

"I've had a chance to [review] it, and it was one of my better ones.  The fact that it happened to J.T. made it that much sweeter. Because we all know J.T. and he talks too much sometimes. And I'm glad it happened to him."

Flying High

Not much that needs to be said about this photograph. It is a friggin' awesome shot of the best dunker in the association. There is no debate. Enjoy.

If the playoffs started today...

The Associations regular season is entering its final lap, with each team having less than 20 games remaining on the schedule. Curious what the postseason matchups will look like if the playoffs started today? Wondering who will advance? Say no more then...

Eastern Conference
(1) Miami Heat vs. (8) Milwaukee Bucks
Prediction: Heat in 6
LeBron & Co. will advance in absolutely any matchup they draw in the first round. But Milwaukee is actually the opponent that might give the Heat the most trouble. Quick talented guards, along with Larry Sanders protecting the rim, does not match up well against the boys from South Beach.

(2) Indiana Pacers vs. (7) Atlanta Hawks
Prediction: Pacers in 5
Indiana's frontcourt will be able to contain Al Horford and the rest of the Hawks big men. A certain Club Bosh contributor has managed to get his with Al Horford's cousin in the VIP of the Club, but I digress.  Indiana's one of the few contenders in the East to challenge the Heat, and the lowly Hawks won't give them much trouble in the first round. 

(3) New York Knicks vs. (6) Boston Celtics
Prediction: Celtics in 6
The NY Knicks have screamed mediocrity recently (20-20 in last 40 games), while the Celtics have played impressive ball since Rondo's injury (15-6 without him). The aging C's should put away the Knicks with relative ease.

(4) Brooklyn Nets vs. (5) Chicago Bulls
Prediction: Nets in 7
This matchup seems the most difficult to pick, mostly due to the uncertainty of Derrick Rose's availability for the postseason. I don't think he will play, which tips the scale ever so slightly to the Nets squeezing past the Bulls in seven games.

Western Conference
(1). San Antonio Spurs vs. (8) Los Angeles Lakers
Prediction: Spurs in 6
This would be a helluva matchup to witness. Kobe vs. Timmy D. again for a chance to keep a title hope alive. Don't think anybody knows exactly what the Lakers will bring come the postseason, but I know the Spurs & Coach Pop wouldn't exactly be thrilled with drawing Kobe & D-12 in the first round.

(2) Oklahoma City Thunder vs. (7) Houston Rockets
Prediction: Thunder in 5
Another great matchup if this were to happen, with OKC meeting with former star James Harden the same year he was dealt to Houston. Harden and the Rockets have no problem filling the bucket, but would struggle mightily trying to contain RussRuss & KD.

(3) Memphis Grizzlies vs. (6) Golden State Warriors
Prediction: Grizzlies in 6
The contrast in styles in this matchup would make for an interesting playoff matchup. The Griz might be the best halfcourt team in the league behind Z-Bo & the other Gasol, while the Warriors run the floor in transition under the direction of Steph Curry with ease. Halfcourt basketball always tends to be more important in the postseason, thus giving Memphis a bid into the second round.

(4) Los Angeles Clippers vs (5). Denver Nuggets
Prediction: Clippers in 7
The Denver Nuggets have been excellent (especially at home) throughout the season, but a draw against Lob City would mean the end for the Nuggies. CP3 would be able to control Ty Lawson's quick transition game, likely creating problems for Denver to score. Would be a great series, but I don't see the team game that Denver plays being able to overcome Chris Paul & Co. in LA.



Awesome uniforms, Damian Lillard, and a sick layup.  Not bad, Portland.  Not bad at all.

The King dunks on The Queen

Club Bosh was in South Philly last night to see the Heat extend their winning streak to 20.  The Sixers put up a valiant effort but were derailed by a missed layup by Big Spence with 24 seconds left down 94-91.  I told myself I would not go on another Spencer Hawes rant so all I'm going to say is I could have made that layup and I am one of the 3 worst basketball players on the planet.

All was not lost though, as our king, Jrue Holiday had an epic dunk on the Queen to tie the game at 91 with about 1:20 left.  During the ensuing time out, the Queen was seen making Chalmers wipe Jrue's spunk off his face.

I picked an awesome season to buy Sixers season tickets.  24-40 and most times I'd rather be relieving the toilet scene from Arachnophobia.

Larry Sanders has the best ejection of the year

The video speaks for itself.  Just an awesome freakout after being ejected for arguing a charge call during the Bucks' 106-93 loss in the nation's capital last night.  Lucky for the Bucks there is no one anywhere close to them for the 8 seed because they suck right now.

Family Fued

Brook Lopez gained eternal braggin' rights over his brother Robin last night, and luckily for us there is video evidence of the assault.

Gotta think being on the wrong end of a poster must be embarrassing, but to be dunked on by your own brother? Shooooey. Might be time to see a shrink, Rob.

Dime of the Year?

Suns rookie Kendall Marshall dropped a silly dime at the expense the Turkish Hammer.

Best assist of the year? I'd have to say so thus far. Finally a bright spot on the Suns season.

Ricky Rubio Monster Triple Double

Club VIP, Ricky the Kid, was up to his old tricks last night as he lead the depleted Wolves to a 103-87 surprise win over the Spurs.  Ricky finished up with a 21 point, 13 board, 12 assist triple double to go along with one sweet highlight layup.  Can't help but think "what could have been" when you look at the Wolves 2013 campaign. 

Hopefully Milk Chocolate lays off the volleyball hoes this offseason and focuses on getting ready for next year.

Great Stats

Slow day up in da club, but here are a few nuggets to chew on.  They're wild, for different reasons. 

Up first:
Safe to say Bron might just be turning the corner on all the naysayers.  Small sample size, sure.  But completely absurd numbers.  Near impossible to play better basketball.
And then, in a tweet sure to drive Chuck to the brink of insanity...

Just something else to further the Westbrook/Durant cohabitation talk.  Regardless of how good Westbrook is, he should not be taking more shots per game than Durant.  Sure there will be nights RussRuss is the hot hand, but over a season?  Unacceptable.  It also speaks to the shooting efficiency of the OKC duo.  For example, last night in a loss to the Spurs, KSmoov shot 9/13, while RussRuss clocked in at 11/27.  TWICE AS MANY SHOTS?!  That just flat-out does not make sense.  That is the type of performance that can derail Title hopes in the postseason.  If the Thunder want any chance of even reaching the Finals, Ksmoov needs to be in the drivers seat, and Scott Brooks needs to make that clear.  But I don't know if a) he can muster the cajones to tell Russ that, and b) what kind of tantrum Russ would throw at hearing it.  Should OKC flame out before the Finals, there's going to be a lot of speculation about RussRuss, and whether the Harden trade was a move they'll live to regret.

Kobe Bryant is humble as humble gets

"I'd call up the Buss family and tell them to get that guy off the team." 

Rough day up in da club.  Big fight went down on the dance floor last night so we've been cleaning up glass and dealing with impending lawsuits from money hungry bystanders most of the day.  Nursed our hangovers and kept our eyes on the clock with the idea of a slow night at home waiting for us come 5.  Now the 5 o'clock hour is upon us, the hangover from last night is just about gone and I just got word from Larry that da club has free Budweisers for the first 100 people through the door.  Now all I can think about is that first sip...


Be safe out there people or Kevin Garnett will rip your head off and drink your blood.

How does this happen to a professional basketball team?

In the throws of blowing a 25 point lead including allowing a 20-0 run in the last 6:22 of the fourth quarter, the Hornets found time to forget what basket they were defending and allow Kobe to streak uncontested for a dunk that put the game out of reach.  How, with 24 seconds left in a 2 point game, does a team forget what basket they are defending?  Hopefully the name change to the Pelicans next season can erase the Hornets' recent misfortunes.

PS Kobe ended last night with 42 points on 14-21 from the field with 12 assists and 7 boards.  Here come the Lakers.

I said god DAMN!

What the fuck!?  That is some Harlem Globetrotters/halftime trampoline mascot shit.  You should not be allowed to do that mid-game.  I don't think it can be Dunk of the Year just because it's not right in somebodys grill, but you will be seeing this for years to come.  Unreal.

PS - Bout time we got to see a new DeAndre Jordan bench reaction shot. 

BronBron For the Win

Ignoring the fact that the Heat blew a 20-point lead against the Magic, let's just take a look at LeBron taking the game into his hands and coming through with a sick crossover to lefty layup to keep the win streak alive at 16.

Happy 41st to the most dominant big of my lifetime

9 years the junior of the jovial Sir Charles, and the racist MJ, Kobe's former pimp Shaquille O'Neil turned 41 today.  In his prime, some of which is depicted in the video below, he was the most athletic and dominant big in the game.  He averaged close to 30, 14 and 3 blocks and won 4 Larry O'Brien's.  Sources close to the club report that his most impressive feat during his playing days was piping Kobe's wife.

The Lakers seem to finally have some mo and are in contention for a playoff berth out West. Last night they eeeeeked by the Hawks thanks to Kobe's 34, Dwights 15 boards, and Nash's 10 dimes. All kudos goes to Kobe Bean for this silly poster of J Smoove.

Immediate Dunk of the Year Candidate. The Lower Merion standout proving he still got some jump left in those HoF kicks.

All You Need to Know

BronBron puts the nail in the coffin of a 16-point comeback over the Knicks in MSG, making it 14 wins on the trot for the defending champs.  James posted a 29-11-7-3 line, with 12 points in the fourth quarter.  Also guarded Melo for the second half, holding him to 8 points on 3-11 shooting, and put up a huge block on Tyson Chandler.  Not much else you can say about the presumptive MVP.

Miami Heat late to the Harlem Shake craze

Here ya go, Left Coast Pete.

The beginning of this video is definitely the highlight.  Watching Birdman's crazy ass flap his "wings" while coming towards the camera is the definition of comedy.  Of course, Lebron dresses up like a queen, the Boshtrich is curiously wearing a nightgown and D. Wade dressed up like a bear because he is insecure (yes, I am jealous).

As a bonus, check out Mike Miller and Birdman making fools out of themselves trying to rap 'Ice Ice Baby'.

Rubio's Words of Wisdom

Not every pro athlete takes their situation for granted.  Check out Ricky Rubio giving advice to rookie, Alexy Shved, during the Wolves 116-94 loss to the Lakes last night.  Pretty cool stuff.

Don't look now, but the Lakers are only 2 back of the 8 seed out West.
