Why We Love Buzzer Beaters

As of this writing, the Cleveland Cavaliers have forced a winner take all game to be held in the Celtics home court at the Boston Garden after LeBron James epic 46 points performance witnessed by billions of NBA Basketball fans around the world.

Going back to the topic ….  LeBron James did it again! With 8 seconds in the regulation and the score tied at 103 – 103 he calmly sank what as basketball fans says is a Banco De Mayo… crossing the half court and right in front of the opponents bench who are all looking forward to another 5 minutes extra time to at least steal a game at the Quicken Loans Arena the Cavaliers Home court. So why we love to see buzzer beaters? Be it live or in the TV screens. And there’s another thing about buzzer beater, we love to watch it repeatedly! And the big question still lingers …. why?

Research says that it’s in everybody’s DNA.! The crave to witness electrifying performances and to perform it in front of millions of spectators is entirely the same when it comes to drive and enthusiasm to be in those situation.

To see it and to do it is entirely the same whoever you are! – Paquito

Le Bron James, The Greatest Of All Time once He Retire.. Agree?

The debate halls are once again very much alive with the current basketball generation of greats and iconic player to ever play the game. There was an article where a Basketball Hall of Fame awardee said “a debate is constantly raise as to who is a better player, pitting greats of different era and of different class.. for me, It is how a player reacts to the social pressures attached to the game and not the way he play and accomplished things out there… ” And if we are to gauge the way team owners, managers and players opinion with the same question disregarding the era, generation or time of existence, it seems most of us will agree that the kid from Akron, Ohio stand tall among the rest with the way teams are going after his services with one mission at hand which is to regain the popularity of their team.

For the first time the All Star Game were reformat to instill a little “competition” and excitement for the fans around the world, stimulated our thoughts who the real and top of his class is…. and that is Le Bron James.

And the excitement continues as a billboard boldly entices the King to join the “Trust Process” team in order for them to “Complete the Process”.

My question is this, there is no doubt that the super power forward Le Bron James is the fastest, talented, high game IQ and the most to create mismatch in the position to ever play the game. He can trust his agility if wants to and many have proven it by winning several championships. With the free agency looming from the horizon, whichever team Le Bron James choose to be with is bound to win a championship, agree? And not until another bigger, faster and brighter player arrives the door of any NBA team… Le Bron James will hold for a time the acronym the GOAT regardless of generation, era or time.

Hey basketball fans, do you like the what you’ve read… then send me your thoughts and opinion even if you are a fan or not of Le Bron James but a die hard fan of the game! See you..

Let me share to you one of the most strongest quote from one of the best in basketball.

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Cheap-Prized Moves

Packing up your team with a load of stars is an act of fear in disguise of rebuilding. The trend in sports have become a culture of will to win the championship at the expense of bringing together superstars and wreck havoc to those whose values are still patterned for ages. To receive a salary way too low the market value is tantamount to acknowledging the mission not to compete fair and square but with overload of power and deceit.

But who’s to blame? The team owner or the players? They’re claiming to they wanted to be the marquee player, the floor director, the leader of the band or the alpha of the team but they chose to go with teams who’ve gone through the playoffs instead of signing with those bottom finishers.

Gone are the character of a total warrior, competitor or up to the challenge players who’ll stick it through pain and pride all year long. The game has become a circus instead of a competition. An event instead of a ball game.

It’s the same old story, beaten by a team assembled through faithful drafts and resorted to labeling it as a super team in order not to lose the “best team tag” from the other division. What else shall we hear next time?

People are tired of seeing orchestrated stories, fans wants to witness competition where skill and strategies are played on the court not in the paper. – Paquito

NBA FINALS 2017- Best Opinion from a Fan, What’s Your’s Buddy?

Here is one of the best opinion from a legit NBA fan from the Philippines who shares his observation in technical and historical way on how the story of the NBA 2017 Finals will about to unfold. Live Score while writing this article is 29-18 in favor of Cleveland Cavaliers after a trey from KD with 4:44 to go in the First Quarter.  Your Comments and suggestions please.

The Golden State Warriors will be the new NBA champs a few minutes from now, IF they’d be able to close out game 4 in the Cleveland Cavalier’s home-court. Yes, they have literally toyed with the Cavs for the past 3 games, even when the 2 best players of Cavs in Lebron & Kyrie,  gave the best they could in game 3  (I gave everything I had. LBJ) , Cavs almost win,… almost.

GSW should be able to close out the series today, IF the ghosts of the past won’t hunt them, what ghosts were talking here? KD with OKC last year up 3-1 against GSW, lost to Curry and the Warriors. GSW (73-9), up 3-1 vs Cavs, failed to close out, and…

I’m sure everyone still remembers what happened next. Lebron , Kyrie ,Love & the Cavs will be part of history IF GSW is bent on closing out the finals today (GSW 16-0) , its just that they’d be on the negative side of that story. But if , Cavs would be able to win this one at home after giving it all that they could, its win or go home for them, we might be in for another great comeback from LBJ, who’s visited the Philippines, where basketball is treated like the national sport, and where everyone knows that never say die spirit from the Big J, who knows?

LBJ might actually be a fan of the Big J too.
