The Atlanta Hawks have been the topic of many conversations this past regular season and for good reason too. The Hawks had a pretty impressive regular season with a franchise record of 60 wins and 22 losses but it seems they have been running into some roadblocks with the Brooklyn Nets.
Normally sports arena’s are packed just before tip-off but during the warm-ups before Game 3 of the Brooklyn Nets/Atlanta Hawks series the lack of fans left Barclays Center Empty. TNT broadcaster Marv Albert said the Nets were expecting a sold out but he may have exaggerated a bit.
This was the view just minutes before tip off:
As a Knicks fan, I am not the biggest fan of owner James Dolan because I and many other die hard fans blame him for alot of the unfortunate things the team has had to go through over the years. Nonetheless today he made me proud to root for the Knicks, despite their record, after he shut down a fan who sent him an angry email. In most cases someone in his position would not even acknowledge people talking crazy about him, it comes with the territory. Dolan decided however that day was going to be the day he destroyed someone in return.
Another day, another Clippers highlight! The endless top plays the Clippers produce with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan seem like they are on ESPN daily. Here is another example of why if you think about jumping with DeAndre you better have some serious hops or be strong about it. Brooke Lopez was neither!

Kobe Bryant. Kevin Durant. Now, Kevin Garnett. The NBA regular season hasn’t even hit the halfway point and Garnett has become the third player to get into it with Dwight Howard. Nearly midway through the first quarter of tonight’s game between the Houston Rockets and Brooklyn Nets, KG and Howard got tangled up a little bit. It seemed like a harmless foul, but things escalated pretty quickly.
A push by Garnett turned into a retaliation shot by Howard and then things got out of hand. KG sealed his fate for the rest of the night by throwing the ball at DH and delivering a headbutt right to the dome.
