Latest Comic: The Avengers
After watching the Portland Trailblazers’ historic 136-106 beat-down on the Spurs home court, hammering the worst loss in the Duncan era, it prompted me to revisit Tony Parker’s MVP candidacy. (continue reading…)
Kawhi Leonard 2013 Regular Season Sophomore Highlights Mix
Making the video and reading the play-by-plays, Kawhi Leonard’s biggest problem seems to be foul trouble. He can slash and finish at the rim, has a willingness and a combo of moves in the post, if his shots don’t go in from short range (usually bouncing off the back of the rim) he can make it from mid-range and the three point line. Usually great defensive awareness and rebounding, he has a developing passing game and can get shots on his own but I think he outpaces himself sometimes.
It’d be easy for Leonard to develop into a Bruce Bowen kind of role but with more play-making experience and decision making abilities I think his ceiling is a Ginobili-calibre player with more offensive moves from his mid-range and post-up game.
The Spurs offense continues to dominate as the silver and black extend their 20 game winning streak.

The “Garden of Bones” opens with a fart joke gone horribly wrong as Robb Stark launches a surprise night attack against the Lannisters, killing them 5 to 1. Although victorious, Robb Stark reveals himself to be as clueless as modern leaders when it comes to war since he does not have any plans on what to do in the aftermath of his campaign. This does not impress the attractive medic from Atlantis who heals either side, and she disdains at the pointless (continue reading…)
“What is Dead May Never Die” opens up with a familiar scene of Jon Snow getting chewed out by veterans of the Night’s Watch, except this time it’s for spying on the old wildling Craster sacrificing babies in the woods. Snow is told not to interfere with these unsavory rituals, his guardian Mormont tells Snow that the wildlings serve crueler gods than the Starks’. The following scene cuts to the bed-ridden Bran Stark who sees direwolf visions in his dreams foreshadowing events like his father’s death. He talks to his caretaker Maester Luwin who reminds the young Stark that magic, giants, dragons, and children of the forest are all but gone.
In “The Night Lands”, Warhammer tabletop gaming nerds have their fantasies come to life on the small screen. We are also introduced to Lando Calrissian and a sibling relationship that would gross out Luke and Leia Skywalker. And no episode is complete without power struggles pitting half-man against half-man as Tyrion and Varys play the Game of Thrones. (continue reading…)
