Shoe Review: adidas D Rose 5 Boost

  First let’s get this out of the way – I’ve played in the adidas D Rose 5 Boost several times and I haven’t torn my ACL.  Or my meniscus.  Or hurt my ankles.  Or had nagging hamstring problems.  So, if you plan on buying these shoes to “be like Derrick”, don’t bother.  At the […]

Missner’s Manifesto: Big (East) Worries

(Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports)   I am worried about the Big East. The nation’s best basketball-preferred (no football – perhaps other sports) conference is one of my favorites (no football!) because it has the proper 10-team alignment and had a nice history.  However, the conference had a rough 2014 NCAA tournament (completely out by the […]

NBA Charges Drawn Totals – 2014/15

(Draymond Green takes a charge from Blake Griffin by Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports) In today’s stat-driven age, one NBA stat continues to fly under the radar – charges drawn (offensive fouls taken).  Taking a charge is an important defensive skill, one that has the same positive outcome for a team that a block does (with the added […]

Denver Nuggets hope to get back on track before 2015

This Denver Nuggets team is extremely streaky. They first started off 2-8, and then went on to win six games in a row. Lately this team has been struggling, falling to third-place in the Northwest Division behind the resurrected Oklahoma City Thunder and the Portland Trailblazers. Denver can score in bunches, which is why they […]

Missner’s Manifesto: Dissecting Wildcats

The Tar Heels showed a little early spark, but were clearly outclassed (even more so than Texas a week earlier). Even with my patented DVR method keeping me on […]
