Last night, Rajon Rondo stepped up BIG to close out the Second Round of the Playoffs. With Pierce fouled out and the Celtics struggling to score, Rondo went on a personal 9-0 run to put the game and series away for the Celtics.

Rajon Rondo comes up BIG for the Celtics, Game 7 vs 76ers.

Confirmed NBA Stars include:
Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Amare Stoudamire, Chris Bosh

Others:
Ray Allen, Vince Carter, Baron Davis, Tyson Chandler, Jamal Crawford, Rudy Gay, Blake Griffin, Juwan Howard, Antawn Jamison, Kevin Love, John Wall, Russell Westbrook

and the Throwbacks:
Reggie Miller, Dikembe Mutombo, Alonzo Mourning!

Carter, McGrady and Oakley Reunite

Its Friday, November 4th.. you know what that means? That means we should be watching Blake Griffin dunking on a couple of Trail Blazers, Spurs and Mavs in an old timer classic and a good ol’ Nash vs Bryant showdown…

… instead we’re chilling around, waiting on tomorrows meeting, the first meeting between the player union and NBA after the last possible deal fell apart. And listening to news on a “very real” chance that players are seeking that the union be decertified??

All great news.. as usual..

So today, we’re gonna talk Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady and Charles Oakley, interviewed by TSN’s “Off the Record” Show about their days in Toronto. And the “what if..” factor

 

 

 

Check it out!

Makings of a Classic

Click and Follow/Like the NBA Swish on FACEBOOK and on TWITTER

The Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks are in the midst of a rivalry. In last year’s second round match-ups the Magic swept the Hawks while setting the record for the most lop-sided NBA series of all time, winning each game by an average of 25.3 ppg.

This year the Hawks are back, with something to prove beating the Magic 3 our of 4 times in the regular season and have now taken a 2-1 lead in the series.

Game 1 – Dwight Howard was unstoppable, racking up 46 pts and grabbing 19 rebounds! But, Magic still lost due to a horrendous shooting display by the rest of the team.

Game 2 – Howard again scored 39 pts and collected another 19 boards. . . yeah, animal, I know! This time pulling out a ‘W’.

Game 3 – Did not disappoint. . .

First, “The Fight” – Zaza Pachulia doing his best Zinedine Zidane Impression

Does J-Rich have Dwight’s back?? The answer is Yes..

and then, this. . .

Jamal, with the beauty . . . pun intended. . .

Who says there’s no such thing as miracles..

Game 4 is Tonight! and I wouldn’t miss it!

Playa’s of the Year!

One of the most highly anticipated NBA regular seasons has come to end, but the excitement is just beginning! With the NBA Playoffs set to begin this Saturday! But first, I’ve gotta hand out my Season’s Awards.

Click and Follow the NBA Swish on FACEBOOK and on TWITTER

Most Valuable Player!

Derrick Rose

. . . . . enough said, just watch!!  MVP! MVP! MVP!

Alright, but I can’t go on without mentioning that the Chicago Bulls won 62 games this season and stole the best league record from the San Antonio Spurs on the LAST DAY of the regular season.

And obviously, D-Rose has been unconscious and as consistent as Day n’ Night..

Rookie of the Year!

This next guy is pretty incredible as well, I’m sure you’ve heard his name before…

Blake ‘the Earthquake’ Griffin

This guy’s had so many highlights, the NBA should considering re-naming the Top 10 Plays after him!

Defensive Player of the Year!

Dwight Howard 

He’s like his own SWAT team, as in he will swat that *beep*outta here.. (clever, I know..)

No seriously, a basketball looks like your daily orange in this guy’s hands.

Sixth Man!

James Harden

yeah ever since the Thunder traded away Jeff Green, Harden has become the most consistent spark off the bench! Strong Finish!

(Alot of ppl may pick Lamar Odom, but the guy’s stats are inflated because he was a starter for the first 2 months of the season… real bench numbers arn’t that impressive)

Most Improved Player!

Papa pa pa paaa I’m Lovin’ it!

Kevin Love

Fantastic personal achievement this season.. and an incredible 30-30 night! 

… just hope your cooties are contagious.. your teammates need it.

Coach of the Year!

Tom Thibodeau

No LeBron James? No Dwayne Wade? No Problem.. the Tom Thibodeau, Derrick Rose tandem is the best in the league!

First time Head-coach has shocked us all with his ability to earn his player’s loyalty and dedication! ..

Playoffs a different story, we’ll have to wait and see..
