Schmeelk: Thunder Not Title Ready, But The Heat Are

Going into this series, I was sure the Oklahoma City Thunder would beat the Miami Heat rather handily in the NBA Finals. The Thunder had more depth and played better team ball than the Heat ever could. I was wrong on all counts.

Schmeelk: Save The NBA Season!

The easy people to blame for the pending NBA lockout are the faces of each side: David Stern, Adam Silver, Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter. The truth is that if it was up to those four men, this deal would have been done a long time ago.
