NBA basketball articles from December, 2002

Examining possible playoff matchups
Lets check out some of the possible playoff matchups we could see in 2003. They're sweet. Dec 31.

Team by team New Year's Resolutions
With the New Year upon us, NBA teams will be making adjustments in either their playoff runs for the championship, or their tanking plans for the #1 pick in the draft. I've taken it upon myself to suggest a few New Year's resolutions... Dec 30.

Clippers need holiday cheer
Fan editorial. The Clippers have a holiday gift in Lamar Odom's return, but should they made a trade? This fan editorial suggestions a pretty major trade, where they'd give a lot, but gain a lot in return. Dec 29.

Chicago playoffs possible
Chicago is thinking postseason, baby, and other playoff contenders should be afraid of a team that could do some serious damage in the playoffs. Coach Bill Cartwright believes it can happen. As for the rest of the world, that's a different story... Dec 27.

The gift that keeps on giving
NBA fans must have been awfully good this year. Dec 26.

NBA rules analysis: make him earn a defensive stop
"Make him earn it at the line." Those seven words sum up much of what is wrong with the NBA: a regulatory design that punishes athletic artistry and well-honed skills while rewarding thuggery and the deliberate breaking of rules. Dec 24.

Observations from Chicago vs. New Jersey
Easily-digestable notes from Bulls vs. Nets matchup in the Swamp Monday night. Dec 24.

Around the NBA
On the awesome Nuggets, expansion and the new owner, and lots of other stuff in the latest Amico Report. Dec 20.

Vote for deserving all-stars
The most qualified guys should always play, regardless of popularity, position, or chances to win the game...

Players wearing other players' jerseys
The insane proliferation of the throwback jersey has had a weird effect on me lately. Everywhere you look, outside, on TV, wherever, someone is wearing a cool-because-it's-ugly Alex English jersey or a totally nonsensical Kobe "MPLS" deal.

Nuggets, Rockets, 76ers Trade
See the complete trade and reactions.

Christmas Rivalries

All-Star Voting: pick the fun players

Santa, please help the Cavs
A writer in Ohio wants the Cavs to receive some extra help.

Vince Carter: no vinsanity lately
Fan editorial. What in the heck has happened to Vince Carter? You remember him, right? Vince Carter, who would be in so many Sportcenter highlights that you swore he was playing more than one game a night...

Early NBA team awards
Fan editorial giving out some awards like Most Disappointing and Most Surprising teams so far this season.

Around the NBA
Looking all around the league, in the latest Amico Report. Timberwolves, Lakers, lottery stuff and more.

Hubie's Grizzlies
It is an understatement to say that the Grizzlies are not playing well. They didn't play well under Sidney Lowe and they aren't setting the league on fire with Hubie Brown...

Mike Dunleavy's NBA start
It's been a slow beginning to Mike's NBA career. But, with the Warriors, there's plenty of time to develop.
