GiFsports Closed BETA invitation - Video play-by-play coverage of Olympics Basketball

Hi Sideliners,

Been a while since I've been here.

For the past couple of months, I (alongwith my cofounders) have been working on a video play-by-play sports coverage platform, GiFsports. It supplements textual updates with the actual clips of ...

Miami Heat : Dark-horse championship contenders?

When the Heat added Goran Dragic last season, it gave them another creator off the dribble who could really run. And then their championship aspirations went zip with Chris Bosh out. With Bosh and Dragic both coming back, the Heat ...

Future of Sports media?

This is a question for every sports lover on sidelines. What is the future of sports media going to be like? It plays a major part in the sports themselves. It's future might mean the world for the sports ...

Appreciating the Golden (State Warriors) Journey

The Golden State Warriors are 3 games away from being crowned the kings of the basketball world. Sure, anything can happen in the Playoffs. Even if they don't end up winning, which would be the biggest underdog story in ...

Blake Griffin (elbow surgery) out indefinitely, Damian Lillard an all-star?

The NBA is a bittersweet story. With every winner, there's a loser. Clippers just announced that Blake Griffin has a staph infection in his right elbow and will get surgery on 9th of february. He will be evaluated after ...

Taking advantage of a desperate situation

The Denver Nuggets had depth at the center position and talent too. They knew that and parlayed it into two future picks and let Mozgov leave for Cleveland. Right now, Denver is outside looking in as far as the postseason ...

@Fonz Yap They are better than expected. But what additions do you suppose they need to make to truly be considered contenders?

This was a statement win, sure but don't close the door on San Antonio becoming Warriors-beaters too. San Antonio has more than enough talent and experience to learn from this matchup and the next three of the season series ...

I'm disappointed Butler wasn't named starter. He'll definitely be selected though.

I think they're a 50 win team without Curry. They have a couple of All-star hopefuls in Thompson and Green. An improving hopeful in Barnes. Plus their offense is built around moving the ball and shooting, which they can ...

I'm most intrigued by Goran Dragic alongside Gerald Green and a healthy Chris Bosh. Green can really pace the Heat and help them space the floor too. Bosh can space the floor with his corner 3. If Wade's ...

A great business move from the blazers perspective. To judge that, you have to look how it might have played out for them into the future. Kanter is a player who can move fairly well. In today's fast pace ...

He just shot himself in mentally. You cannot "be the man" after going through an immature stretch like this. This is disrespectful to the Mavericks organization and no other organization will seriously tackle him the same way again. Very unprofessional ...

We might just witness the return of Linsanity. He was pretty good in Houston as well. The Mavericks will provide alot of the same things that D'Antoni's knicks did. Fast pace, PnRs and shooting. Excited to see how ...

Let's not get high on the Spurs. As much as I love them, we have to stay realistic. The Spurs did sign LA but at what price? Tim Duncan will need to sign a hefty discount, so will everybody ...

Lets look at how the Cavaliers would have played if they were fully healthy. First of all, Lebron would have never entered Jordan-mode with K.love and Kyrie healthy. That would have made the Cavaliers pretty similar to the Heat ...

@Noah DiPasquale I think the main reason why they're bringing lance aboard is his defense. The Clippers were already good enough offensively. Only time will tell how he fares alongside other Clippers since their roster might receive major shakeups ...

 In reply to Day 1 Recap

I can see the Cavaliers and Spurs/Warriors/Clippers battling it out next June, both trotting out great small-ball lineups and running everywhere.

I can see the Cavaliers using Love-Thompson-Lebron-Shumpert-Irving lineup throughout the playoffs, not so much in the regular ...
