May 19th, 2011 by FourMajor | Comments Off on The Mysterious Dunk Poster
Seemingly twice a week you’ll hear that someone got “posterized” by a slam dunk. Like the dunk by Taj Gibson on D Wade. “Posterized” means that someone dunked on you, and therefore you’ll be on their poster that will go on the walls of countless twelve-year-old boys across the country. However, a cursory search turns up no results. You can get posters of players dunking, solo, in Slam Dunk Contests, but none of them dunking making some other guy look foolish.
So, maybe we need to end the term “posterize,” unless someone actually starts printing the posters 🙂
Although, it looks like you can get this classic on eBay.

May 6th, 2008 by FourMajor | Comments Off on NBA Playoffs as a Great Struggle
For some reason, and maybe this season more than previous seasons, the NBA playoffs somehow seem to activate a certain part in my brain that is usually reserved for intense interest in political struggles or a great movie drama.
The playoffs are great this year. The only way I could enjoy them more is if I could watch more of the games.

From Steve Kerr’s final NBA power rankings:
“With no Gilbert Arenas or Caron Butler, the Wizards are the team everyone in the East wants to play in the first round. It looks like Toronto will have the honor.”
