Wiggins vs. Parker reminds me of…..

  …..no, not Lebron v Carmelo. That matchup was more one-sided than Tyson Chandler arm tats. The NBA over-hyped that one for years, until ‘Melo’ finally “got it.” This matchup reminds me of Bender v Gay. Let me explain….. The matchup between Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker has a lot more credence to it than ‘LBJ v...

Heat must change strategy on Parker

  Most of world will always remember Game 5 of the 2013 NBA Finals as the game that Manu Ginobili put all that retirement talk to rest. Others will remember it as the game that Danny Green set the record for most three-pointers in a championship series.
