NBA Playoff Predictions- May 24th

*Record 9-8* Because of time constraints this article may be a little shorter than usual. I actually debated skipping my predictions for today because of my busy schedule, but then I remembered my motto of “no days off.” Here we have a very succinct, and to the point, playoff prediction for tonight as the Warriors look to even the series after getting embarrassed in Game 3. Golden State Warriors @ Oklahoma…

NBA Playoff Predictions- May 23rd

*Record 8-8* And just like that, pressure is on. For me, of course, not for the Raptors or Cavs. I have yet to dip below .500 the whole playoffs and here I am with my back against the wall. So, let’s see how I fair tonight as we have the Cleveland Cavaliers out for vengeance after losing a physical Game 3 to a hungry Toronto Raptors’ team Cleveland Cavaliers @ Toronto Raptors The…

Warriors/Thunder Game 3 Aftermath

This article was originally published in the latest edition of The Morning Mando.  Does Oklahoma City Have Everyone’s Respect Now? I didn’t believe the Thunder had much of a chance to win the West before these playoffs began. I expected Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook to certainly test the San Antonio Spurs in the semifinals.

Raptors Not Done Yet

I’ll admit it, I was wrong. If you’ve been reading my NBA Playoff Prediction articles, you’ll know that I was part of the majority who was already assuming the Cavs were going to walk into the NBA Finals. The majority that said the Raptors simply lack the talent to compete with Cavs. And let me make this clear, Toronto still has a lot more work to do if they want…

NBA Playoff Predictions- May 21st

*Record 8-6* I’m going to try and make this one short and sweet, because I think it’s evident that the Raptors just do not have enough firepower to compete with the Cavs. Lowry and DeRozan are all-stars, but LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are superstars. The Cavaliers are a level up on the Raptors on just about every facet of the game and its shown thus far. Toronto is a young and…
