A trip around the league's Spurs playoff previews

As the Spurs prepare for their first-round series against the Clippers, we look at what writers around the Internet are saying about the Silver and Black's chances to advance to the Western Conference Semifinals. The last defending champs to end up as a sixth seed the next season were the '95 Rockets, who went through the third-, second- and first-seeded teams (the last of which being the Admiral's Spurs), en route to a sweep of Shaq, Penny and the Orlando Magic. You don't need a piece of trivia to know that the Spurs have the same kind of potential in them. They're a title contender that...

Andre Drummond the best offensive rebounder ever? The numbers say yes

Well, that didn't take long. Andre Drummond is the fast player to 1,000 rebounds in NBA history. Andre Drummond entered the NBA history books Tuesday night when he secured his 1,000th offensive rebound of his young career. Nobody has done it at a younger age or in fewer games than young Drummond, who was able to achieve the feat at age 21 and in just 215 contests. Shaquille O'Neal and Elton Brand crossed the 1,000-board threshold at 22 in 245 and 231 games, respectively. To call this rare company would be an understatement as only seven players since 1973-74, when offensive and rebounds...

Shaq: "I regret [leaving the Magic] sometimes."

Most of this sites readers think of Shaquille O'Neal primarily as a Laker, but does he remember his career the same way? Shaquille O'Neal's decision to leave the Orlando Magic for the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency during the summer of 1996 altered the course of history for both of the teams involved, as well as the entire NBA. On the night his jersey was retired in Orlando, O'Neal acknowledged that there are times when he "regrets" his decision (as transcribed by the Associated Press): "Do I regret it? I never fully answer it. I regret it sometimes. Is this where I started and should...

Pistons vs. Magic final score: Detroit claims 4th straight win in 111-97 victory in Orlando

Reggie Jackson had another triple double in the Pistons' 28th win of the season. The Pistons continue climbing up the food chain with a 14-point victory in central Florida.  It started as a happy occasion for the Orlando natives, with Shaquille O'Neal being inducted into the Magic Hall of Fame before tip off.  After that, however, it went downhill for them, with Reggie Jackson and Tayshaun Prince...wait Tayshaun Prince?...yes, Tayshaun Prince, dominating. Reggie Jackson became the first Piston since Grant Hill to have multiple triple doubles in a season, which is impressive considering...
