Damian Lillard last week signed a $100 million shoe contract with Adidas. The second year guard for the Portland Trailblazers has been an All-Star and one of the main reasons the Trailblazers are in the playoffs for the first time since the 2010-11 season.

Brooklyn Nets vs Toronto Raptors – The first series of the NBA playoffs is a matchup of Atlantic division foes Brooklyn and Toronto. These teams will be playing against each other at least eight games this season, they tied the regular season 2-2. Kyle Lowry is leading the Raptors into the playoffs for the first time since 2008, but it will be the Raptors defense that decides the series. On the season the Raptors ranked 7th in points allowed per game at 98 ppg. If the Raptors can make the series a defensive battle, the Nets will have had consecutive disappointing playoff runs.

Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Clippers – This is the most intriguing series of the first round on paper. The battle of California will put  two of the most exciting teams in the league against each other. The Clippers lead  the league in points per game (107.9) while the Warriors are  top 10 in both rebounding and points allowed per game. With Andrew Bogut out indefinitely with a rib injury, the Clippers should be able to exploit an undersized Warriors front court. But this series will ultimately come down to the play of Chris Paul and Steph Curry. While Paul is the more traditional point guard of the two, Curry’s scoring ability will play a major factor in the Warriors chances of pulling the upset.  Read More

On the eve of the final game of the regular season it’s time to take a look back at an incredible NBA season.

The NBA season started in a strange way with the Philadelphia 76ers winning their first three games, one of only two win streaks the team would experience all year. But even the 76ers weren’t the worst team this past season. That honor is reserved for the Milwaukee Bucks. At 15-66 going into the final game of the season, the Bucks have clinched the worst record record and the best chance at the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 Draft.

Fans in Milwaukee should tame their expectations though, in the last 22 years, the team with the worst record in the NBA has only gotten the No. 1 pick three times.
