    The Eight Worst NBA/Music Crossovers

    Listen, we know most of you aren't paying attention to the NBA finals like you were last year, but for those of who are (some out of Heat Hate, some out of love for the game), we've been treated to some rather abysmal NBA promos featuring Linkin Park's shitty, shitty music.

    Mavs-Lakers: Looking Back at a Great Series ... and a Horrible Prediction

    ​Never been happier to be wrong. And I don't care that I wasn't alone -- I admit I was wrong. I'm stunned by the Mavs sweeping the Lakers, punctuated by Sunday's 122-86 epic shellacking.

    2011 NBA WEST SEMIS GAME 2 -- Mavs 93, Lakers 81: My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. For the Mavs, a shocking 2-0 lead. For the Lakers, a Stinko de Mayo. L.A. missed its first 15 3-pointers and was booed off the court in Staples Center. As they head for Dallas and Friday night's Game 3, the Lakers are muttering things like "dispirited" and "trust issues." Surreal. 9 ... More >>

    Keeping the Faith: Lakers in 7

    ​The Boston Celtics have the lead. But the Los Angeles Lakers have the advantage. Right? Boston needs just win one - tonight in Game 6 or in a Game 7 Thursday night - to clinch its record 18th NBA Championship. They won't get it. As I said before the series, Lakers in 7. How's that you a ... More >>
