The Clippers Historic Comeback vs The Warriors Has Me Thinking About The Chris Paul Trade.

So much of the Clippers comeback was orchestrated by the players that Los Angeles got back when they sent Chris Paul to Houston. Patrick Beverly led the way with pestering defense and Lou Williams seemed almost unstoppable at times. Montrez Harrell contributed 25 points and 10 boards. All three came from Houston and all three ...

Is LeBron’s plan after the Lakers to play with his kid?

LeBron to the Lakers didn’t surprise anybody, LA was the odds-on favorite for weeks to sign LBJ. What was shocking to some people was the length of the deal (3 years, with a 4th-year player option.) Everyone is saying “He’s in it for the long haul!” and that may be true but I think the ...

NBA Draft Recap: The Bulls Drafted Too Well, Atlanta Did Good Drafting Bad.

It’s been a few days since the NBA Draft, I’ve let all the picks sink in, listened to what all the pundits had to say, and I’m ready to come in hot with my takes. As always I’m viewing this draft through my Chicago Bulls colored glasses.  The Bulls had picks #7 and #22 overall. ...

Throwback Thursday: 20 Years Ago Today Jordan Won his 6th NBA Title with a Performance for the Ages.

I don’t know how anyone who watched Michael Jordan dominate the NBA can make the argument that LeBron is the superior basketball player. Some of the strongest and best evidence of MJ’s greatness occurred 20 years ago today. Damn, I feel old. Jordan was 6-0 in his NBA finals career and even more impressive was ...

As a fan of the Chicago Bulls, I remember all too well the motorcycle accident that ended the career of Jay Williams, who was the Bulls #2 overall pick in the NBA Draft. Personally, I thought he was going to be a bust regardless, but a lot of people thought he was a promising young ...

TNT’s NBA Playoff Coverage Put’s ESPN’s in a Bodybag.

First off, duh. I’m not breaking any news here. Any idiot watching the bullshit talking-headmentary* before and after these games know that TNT at least tries to make it entertaining. All ESPN can do is muster the same drivel it always does. *Talking Headmentary is ATRAINSPORTS.COM latest word invention. It’s self-explanatory, it’s the idle twittering ...

This Blonde Can Do Nothing to Hide Her Post Game Thirst for Kevin Durant.

Durant had a typical Durant game in the playoffs, 38 pts, 9 boards, 5 assists. Golden State easily beat the Pelicans to take a 3-1 series lead. Even more impressive was how Durant is able to get shots up over Anthony Davis and bury them. Proving his shot is unblockable. End of basketball analysis, my favorite ...

It’s Fake News that LeBron Beat Jordan’s Consecutive Games of 10+ Points Streak.

876 consecutive games scoring 10+ points for Lebron James sounds really great. He just broke MJ’s record of 866 games scoring 10+ points. Or did he? There is a very important factor that nobody is mentioning. This is a regular season record. This record does not include the MOST IMPORTANT GAMES. The games played in ...

Shannon Sharpe Goes Ballistic on Lou Williams.

It all started with this article from SLAM. I guess Shannon Sharpe didn’t like it because he took it to twitter like a bat out of hell.           Finally, someone tries to get these guys to make peace.   Shannon and Lou hashed it out, it sounds like Lou might be on ...
