UE's Rare Sweep

UE hated the final our so much that they did the unthinkable... jumped over the tournament format and went straight to the finals by being unbeaten in 14 elimination round games! A sweep is so rare that it last occured 14 years ago.

If this was the ancient of days, the UAAP would've handed them the crown last night.

Congratulations UE Red Warriors!

The Ironic Twists of History

Yeah you guys still talking about the suspensions on Stoudamire and Diaw of the Phoenix Suns. Was it right or unfair?

It would be good to read a historical perspective on the bench clearing rule and show the irony of it all years later.

"The tipping point for the rule probably occurred in March 1993 in, of all places, Phoenix. After a sprawling slugfest between the Suns and New York Knicks, the best teams in their respective conferences, a record 21 players and the two teams were fined a total of $160,500.

Most memorable in the melee was the injured Greg Anthony coming off the Knicks bench in street clothes to sucker-punch the Suns' Kevin Johnson. Knicks coach Pat Riley put a headlock on Johnson, and was subsequently knocked to the floor and had his pants torn."

Phoenix? But here is where it gets interesting.

"How nuts were those days? Three months before the Phoenix debacle, a Houston Rockets player was shoved into the Sonics bench during a game at the old Coliseum, where he tangled up with the Sonics 66-year-old assistant coach, Bob Kloppenburg. Getting up, the player shoved down Kloppenburg, causing the Sonics bench to explode in anger. After the game, the coach called the player "classless," and the player called the coach "senile." But no fouls or fines."

"The perpetrator of this elder skelter? Robert Horry."

The Fantastic Playoffs

Drama In the Playoffs

Derek Fisher's day started out as not a very pleasant one. He flew to New York to attend to his daughter who had surgery then he flew back to Utah to get into the game in the 3rd. It was game that will bring tremendous pressure on him as their lead point guard was in trouble and the temporary backup got injured.

Utah in the meanwhile could have opted to put Fisher out of the lineup but they chose to wait for him and play 11 men in games 1 and 2. Both did not know that God was setting up something wonderful this night.

It will be a day Fisher and the Utah Jazz will never forget. Read this account of Derek Fisher's day.

NBA Funniest Quotes

Basketball is a so serious sport and so we're told. But once in a while the funniest words can come from the pressure packed world of the NBA. Here is my Top 5 funniest.

1. "We lose at home. We lose on the road. For the life of me, I can't figure out where else to play." - Pat Williams (Orlando Magic GM 2003)

2. Marv Albert, explaining the Atlanta Hawks' problems in the NBA: "They have a great bunch of outside shooters. It's just too bad they play all of their games indoors."

3. Here is Charles Barkley talking about Karl Malone on Jay Leno.
Jay Leno: "Karl's in great shape though!"
Charles Barkley: "Me too. Round is a shape!"

4. "I will never forget the time when me and Michael (Jordan) combined for 63 points in a playoff game" - Stacey King said after Jordan scored 61 points when they were both playing for Chicago

5. Tom Nissalke, Coach of the NBA's Houston Rockets, when he was asked to pronounced his name in 1966. "Tom."

When David Slings The Stone

The NBA Playoffs are once again on and basketball fans and observers are viewing the games with great interest. However; you will observe that such interest is heightened to another level whenever the underdog teams make some noise. When Golden State, Denver and Chicago won their initial games against very powerful and championship caliber opponents everybody took a second glance and the media were all over them. Eventually, as we all know, Golden State and Chicago will advance beating both last year's divisional champions while Denver just came short in their series with the Spurs.

What is with us and cheering for the underdogs?

First of all we don't cheer for the underdog all the time, whenever it is our favorite team for the ages like our alma-mater school, a team we have since we are in diapers, we don't care for the hapless team. As much as possible we want them crushed.

But make no mistake about it, as long as it is not our guys we love a good underdog story. We cheer at every basket, we cringe at every mistake and we imagine what it would feel like if they do win. They become media darlings and put heaps of praise as another David like victory unfolded.

Could this heart for the underdog been implanted within our hearts by God? First of all it is because of God that we know how to love.

"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love" (1 John 4:8)

God also told us to take care for the underdogs in life.

"'The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'" (Matthew 25:40)

It seems that this cheering for the underdog has much more to it than the idea of preference,. It is a natural tendency to see something amazing. It is a tendency to see justice and lift people up. The problem is that in basketball it is enough to cheer but in life the underdogs really need our hands and hearts to lift them up. not just words but deeds.

In real life are we are either cheering and lifting the underdog or we are looking out for own team... ourselves.

What if You Had the Privilege?

You have seen how great athletes are introduced in major sporting events. All the fanfare and superlatives one can muster. We regularly experience this as Michael Buffer holds everybody's attention as his voice introduces the great boxers of our time. Even in major championship basketball leagues like the NBA and PBA, we also see this to give tribute to the players who survive the grueling season.

Now what if you had the privilege of introducing the greatest man who ever lived? What if you you are about to introduce Jesus Christ? Comedian Steve Harvey turns serious as he provides a great introduction to the Messiah.

A Looming Force

It is just a matter of time now before NBA fans will give the Magic a really serious look at Dwight Howard since he is fast emerging as a real force in a league lacking in true centers. Soon the magic will be title contenders.

Who is the Best Player in the NBA Right Now?

With all the great players in the NBA right now, this is a very hard question to answer.

In my opinion, Steve Nash is now the best player in the NBA. His team is not the strongest in the league and yet they have been very successful. Coming very close to an NBA Finals appearance in two consecutive years is a testament to their achievement as a team. Nash's success stems not only from his talent but also from his attitude of being an unselfish player. Nash makes his team and teammates better and does not let the spotlight all focused on him. This Nike commercial really captures the essence of Steve Nash to the Phoenix Suns.



This doesn't mean to say that Steve Nash is an ordinary and boring player to watch. This highlight reel shows how a joy is it to be in a Steve Nash game.
