I wanted to somehow chronicle the evolution and origin of the slasher. The slasher has become the most feared offensive force in basketball. The entity alone changed the game and also its unique characteristics by implementing a mid-range jumper, shelving the jumper and banging it on anyone and everyone because of the entertainment value of the ABA, picked it up again to keep defenses honest and now uses the jumper to become deadly and almost unstoppable. The latter is still a work in progress.
One December night in Philly, Kobe is playing the Sixers–who just so happen to be honoring Julius Erving.
Perfect…a dream realized….

Fallin’ from the roof. Thanks Coach Lynam ;)
It’s simple. Can the Lakers do this? If not, what’s holding them back?
2007 was quite a year in sports for me. There were several highs and several lows. The highest of highs occurred in Miami and on Miami Beach. The lowest of the lows occurred in Miami and in Buffalo, NY.
I’ll begin with the highs.

Yeah Grant, he got you
Andrew Bynum (11-13 shooting for a career high 28) and Kobe Bryant (38 pts., 8 dimes) went off on the Suns this Christmas day as the Lakers beat Phoenix 122-115.
Nash had a nice game with 24 and 14 but damn, do the Suns ever play D?
Grant, you know you are my man, but
Richard Dumas Trevor Ariza banged it on you bruh. I guess you know how Nash felt last year.
*Sent the dunk 12/26 via email. Good lookin’ B.
At least you were nice enough to be a little more judicious with your hands. ‘Sup with that Steve ?
Bynum is fast becoming a star. Do not sleep on the Lakers as this kid continues to grow into his limitless potential.
Posted this video in the second part of Jemele’s first interview.
Doug stop hatin’. Nash got dunked on, so deal with it.
Where’s Magic, Chuck, Kenny and Ernie?
Magic Johnson on Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning’s knee injury that he suffered Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks: “Alonzo (Mourning) has meant so much to the game of basketball, both on the court and off. Off the court he’s done more than anybody in the city of Miami, he is a guy who is relentless with what he wants to do for children in Miami. (On Wednesday night) I told him, ‘Now you start your life after basketball, continue on the path of giving back and you can start being a business man. This (injury) just sped up the process.'”

No matter what you think, both are damn good
LeBron James got the best of Kobe Bryant last night 94-90.
Who is better? Is it a fair question? Can we just appreciate both without end game marginalization?
