Semi-Finals at Dyckman presented some unpredictable twists

Playoff action resumed at Dyckman last night with yet another electric crowd. Fans at Dyckman really get into the game. Yes, they are often literally on the court and in the game that way, but they are also basketball-savvy fans who do not hesitate to let their opinions be known. No better time to speak up than when the stakes are at their highest: playoffs. Win or go home. And it’s a long wait until the summer of 2011 – lots of lost sleep can take place over that one turnover you wish you had back or that rushed shot that was swatted into next summer.

Last night Mann Up took on TNP and Team 914 faced Castle Hill in Dyckman semi-final action. Continue reading for details on how it all went down. Read More »

THE DREAM SHATTERER Articles, The Latest, nba / Mar 18, 2010 / 1:54 am

Ayo I shatter dreams like Jordan, assault and batter your team… Listening to Big Pun only reminds me of what pain the Cleveland Cavaliers had to endure for 40 years. I see the bandwagon fans root for Cleveland because we are on the bright side of things but they disgust me. Everyone flocked to Jordan after The Shot, few paid attention to the Hot Rod Williams era, and the Ricky Davis/Andre Miller/Darius Miles era might as well not exist in the history books. I am a native of Cleveland and I loved my city from the start. Until All-Star weekend in Cleveland and the King James era, people were practically giving away Cavaliers tickets. That is certainly a thing of the past now that this Eastern team is on top of the world.

A few people tell me the Cavaliers will choke again but I could care less. I know we fell hard for the past three years; I know what heartbreak feels like (Remember I was a die hard Cleveland sports fan all my life and still to this day). Now is the time to win and I have never been more confident in my life. Jordan fell twice before he won his first and LeBron is no different. Dreams will not be shattered in Cleveland this June anymore.
