We drenched ourselves in as much March Madness 2021 as possible with both the Men's and Women's tourneys! It was dope to see how high the level of competition was regardless of rank. Check out our observations on who got the goods to go pro level, and of course some humorous trivia along the way!
Decimated by injuries to key personnel, Goran Dragic, and Ban Adebayo, not to mention Jimmy Butler playing valiantly on who-knows-how-bad a twisted ankle. This series was close! 4-2 in the end but legitimately Game 4 could have gone either way! Let's put the Miami Heat under the microscope.
How entertaining was this squad? Heart attack kids left it all on the floor every game but it seemed clear that Lebron and Co. had them outclassed. Nothing to hang your head on, Lebron, AD and Co. looks to have the league outclassed this playoffs.So without further adieu let's get into our grading of Nugget individuals for this series. Damn was that an entertaining run.
Biggest Reach: Maryland Terrapins at #11. Look – I love this team! They defeated Indiana in the finals (after Indy took out the perennially-hated Duke along the way to the Final Four). I thought Chris Wilcox (aka, Weezy) was gonna be this millennium’s Shawn Kemp! Juan Dixon was clutch in the tourney (and drafted by the Raps along w/ Lonny Baxter!) But those jerseys? I dunno, Nick...
Yo we go all in on the NBA Restart 2020 with our panel of hoops zealots! Rick Kang and Garth Jackson, 2 Canadian cats, so we definitely talkin' Raptors! A wide ranging discussion on the NBA's return, who's gonna make the playoffs, and what teams need who to step up! Of course peppered with random banter and basketball nuggets for ya'll fiends!
