Both are memorable aspects of his game, and the game of basketball, but probably don’t remember the path that Steve took to make it to the NBA. Continue reading

Two teams that continue to surprise from the beginning of the season even to now as we get into the Western Conference Semifinals are facing off in the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs. The Nuggets find themselves in a place the franchise hasn’t been in a decade, the second round. It wasn’t a pretty series, but they now have the playoff experience that they lacked after going seven games and getting past the San Antonio Spurs.

Here’s what to expect in this matchup of the Western Conference Semifinals. Continue reading
