The Selfishness of Miami’s Chris Bosh

Chris Bosh

As pumped about Game 1 as I was, I was more excited for Game 2. I was happy that the Oklahoma City Thunder won Game 1 and had a chance to take a commanding 2-0 lead down to Miami for Game 3. Well, my excitement last all of three minutes. Before I knew it, Oklahoma City was down 16-2, then 18-2, then 25-8! At the end of the first quarter, the Thunder was down 27-15.  [Read more…]

NBA Finals: Game 2 statistical prediction for LeBron James

LeBron James

I made a prediction about a week ago predicting LeBron James’ numbers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. I was almost spot-on. He finished with 30 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, one block, and two steals. He shot 11-25 from the, 2-6 from three-point range, and 6-8 from the line. If you want to see what I predicted, just click here. Well, I am at it again. I predicted LeBron’s numbers for tonight’s Game 2 against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Also, I included the data I used to help me predict what his numbers will be. Hope you enjoy it. (It might be a little hard to follow but I can’t it is hard to show and explain every step).

Another slow start by the Yanks saw the Desert Foxes’ Rafik Djebbour hit the crossbar after six minutes, and although the Americans began to dominate the match, they could not find their much needed goal- or at least, a goal that would count.

The US once again had a goal disallowed, this time with Clint Dempsey’s tidy finish of a Herculez Gomez cross called offside in the 20th minute (the replays show Dempsey was even with the last defender). The US continued to push forward, but spurned chance after chance to score the winner. As the clock hit 90 minutes, the Americans were on the edge of a disastrous exit from South Africa.
