For the past 6 years, no two people or entities have dominated summers quite like Lebron James and Game of Thrones fan favorite Jon Snow. Lebron has managed to make it the NBA finals every year Game of Thrones has been a TV show. The two perfectly synced timelines has allowed the parallels of the show and the league have melded so seamlessly, that Bleacher Report even has a mini web series called “Game of Zones” which pokes fun at the overlapping timelines of the two summertime entertainment powerhouses.
I consider myself a super fan of both the NBA and Game of Thrones. I read books about each, I watch both religiously, I’ve looked for Easter eggs in old episodes and chapters of Game of Thrones just like I look for clues and subtle hints in NBA Free Agents social media presence. Seriously, the similarities are uncanny.
There’s one thing I’ve been dying to say. I wish I had a mountain top so I could scream it from the top of my lungs, but I don’t. What I have is a blog that we literally resurrected like Jon Snow’s lifeless body in Season 6 episode 2 of GoT…Jon Snow and Lebron James have had the exact same character story arc…and I can prove it.

Allen Iverson and Tyronn Lue had their battles over the course of their careers. Obviously everyone remembers the infamous step-over by A.I. after draining a jumper clinching game 1 of the 2001 NBA Finals as Lue laid helpless on the floor. “The Answer” even shouted him out during his emotional hall-of-fame speech, telling a funny story about how he teased the Cavalier coach, saying the only reason he got paid the following season was for “running around after me.”
TMZ Sports caught up with Lue at an airport to get a statement regarding the relationship A.I and the ex-Laker share, saying they’re like “brothers” now. Lue even went as far as to say, “he could come coach with me” when asked if the 76er legend would make a good coach in the NBA.
Allen Iverson, so hot right now, Allen Iverson. First of all, there’s absolutely no way this will happen. Not that I don’t want it to, I think it would be pretty cool. It’d be a nice way for Iverson to finally win that championship that Tyronn Lue’s Lakers prevented him from obtaining. Lue even went as far as throwing his body on the floor to prevent Iverson to hustle back on defense.*
But, the the NBA has a strict dress code for coaches. If I know anything about Iverson, it’s clearly not that his nickname was the Answer, but the guy for sure doesn’t own a suit. Did he have one on during his Hall of Fame induction? Yep. One quick trip to Joseph A. Banks, and that thing was probably left at his hotel just like his Hall of Fame trophy.
I think the only hope Cavs fans have of AI joining the coaching staff is if they invent not tuxedo tshirts, but suit tshirts. Is that invented already? Or did Coach just strike another gold mine idea and blast it out to the public again. I don’t know, I don’t fact check these things.
*The fact that Lue has never trolled the internet trolls by saying the step over was in fact him just playing aggressively defensive offense is a huge let down. Seems like that’s the perfect kind of Coach hindsight joke that reporters would eat up.
We’re 56 days away from the Return of the King and the rest of the NBA townspeople. As the first tip off draws closer, the pot is starting to stir. The (most boring) Olympics basketball games are over with another US Gold. Here’s some fun/interesting headlines and how I think it may impact the 2016-2017 season.

Happy Friday everybody! Lebron’s back! I know, you’re probably thinking hey Coach, he already said he was returning during the Cavs Championship parade you idiot. That’s true, it’s not as exciting as when he first announced he returned to the Cavs after he graduation from the University of Miaimi-Heat. Still, the contract he’s about to sign is more than enough for any Cavs fan to float between now and October 25th when the Cleve hangs it’s first championship banner in the Q.
Lebron is signing a 3 year deal, 100 million dollar contract. For the first time in his illustrious career Continue reading “At Least Two More Years of Kings James’s Reign”
Anderson Varejao, former favorite in the Cleve and now role playing power forward/center for the silver medal Golden State Warriors, has recently been in the news regarding whether or not he would accept a championship ring. He did play the majority of the season with the Cleveland Cavaliers before he was ditched at the trade deadline, alongside Charlottesville, VA favorite Joey Harris, to Orlando in a deal that landed Channing Frye in Cleveland.
Varejao, being the ultimate blue collar flopper/worker, declined the ring. Let’s get one thing straight though, he was never offered a ring. The Cavaliers organization played the same game of chicken that my friends are currently going through with their long time girlfriends…they were waiting for Varejao to ask for the ring first. No use in buying jewelry before your forced to, amiright every male in America?
I’ll give credit when credit is due Continue reading “Is Anderson Varejao the Biggest Mush of All Time?”
Dwyane Wade’s initial contract discussions with the Miami Heat have not produced a common ground between the parties, and he is preparing to field outside offers when free agency opens Friday, according to league sources.
Sources told ESPN.com that Wade’s representatives have made it known to multiple teams over the last several days that he will be on the market. Some teams have been skeptical, wondering if Wade would seriously consider leaving the franchise where he has played 13 seasons and won three titles.
Well well well, what do we have here? Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat are at a stand still in negotiations, and Dwyane Wade is pulling the suitcase out of the closet move.
Lebron’s secret motivation in the playoffs for the past two years is that certain higher ups in the offices of Miami said he could never win a championship in Cleveland. With one historic series comeback, he has silence the
Pat Riley haters. With that already being a critical blow to the Heat organization, now their golden pony is looking to retire in greener pastures, or at least threatening too.
Now, Dwyane Wade Continue reading “Dwyane Wade is a Savvy Vet On and Off the Court”
