Dwade vs Kevin Durant Top 10 NBA Players

A lot has been in the news recently since Kevin Durant said he would take Dwayne Wade out of the NBA’s Top 10 player in favor of his old teammate James Harden. Personally, I believe Kevin Durant is absolutely right as last season Dwayne Wade was not as great relative to years past. In the playoffs last season  he was virtually another role player on the Miami Heat. Continue reading

Michael Jordan vs. Len Bias

Who is the better player? Would Len Bias live up to the hype of being called the next Michael Jordan? Unfortunately, these questions will never be able to be answered as Len Bias tragically died due to a cocaine overdose the day after he was drafted number 2 overall by the Boston Celtics. As a Maryland fan who has done a few research papers on Len Bias’ career it is interesting to speculate how great he would have been and if he would have been as great as Michael Jordan. Both played in the same era during the 1980s. Michael Jordan for North Carolina and Len Bias for the University of Maryland. They only played each other head-to-head once in which Jordan lead the then, top ranked North Carolina over Bias and Maryland. It was, however, Bias who outplayed Jordan scoring 24 points to Jordan’s 21 points. Continue reading

The Dwight Howard Saga

Less than a week before free agency hits in the National Basketball Association and arguably one of the most exciting times of the year for the NBA will start. Who could forget in the summer of 2007 when Ray Allen and Kevin Garnet formed the “Big 3” in Boston or Lebron making “The Decision” to take his talents to South Beach joining Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. There is a big name almost every year that dominates the headlines. This years and last years headlines have been all Dwight Howard all the time. The indecisive all-star center heading into free agency has teams chomping at the bit trying to lock him up for their franchise. Unfortunately he has changed his mind many times back and forth from team to team driving teams as well as fans crazy. Last year he went back and forth between staying with the Magic, going to Brooklyn (who tried but could not finalize a trade for him), or Dallas. The Lakers ended up making a risky move in trading away Andrew Bynum and 2 future first round draft picks for Howard and his one year contract. After Howard and the Lakers had one of the most disappointing seasons in NBA history it is rumored that he is unlikely to sign back with the Lakers. The question is now where will the 7 foot center want to end up now? It is difficult to predict where any free agent player will end up let alone Howard, who, seemingly changes his mind hourly about which team he wants to play for. Continue reading
