LeBron, Tyreke – What Are You Doing?!

We’ll take a short break from the two-parts football post about the international goalscoring record, in order to talk about two very important things that need to be talked about, before this NBA season is coming to an end.

The thing is – two very important streaks by current NBA players are coming to an end. The first one is by LeBron James. Thankfully, it’s not his streak of scoring in double-digits, a streak which currently stands at 635 games.

Nash used to be one of my favorite players. I first really got to know him in the 2002 playoffs when Dallas reached the Western conference semifinals (and lost to Sacramento 4-1). That team was great to watch. His tandem with Nowitzki was amazing, and all in all it seemed that Don Nelson‘s goal back then was to have representation on the team from as many counrties as possible. Ther was Dirk from Germany, Nash from Canada, Michael Finley from USA, the original Yao Ming –  Wang Zhizhi from China, Eduardo Najera from Mexico. Jesus, they were the Spurs before the Spurs were the Spurs. Continue reading

Ibrahima Bakayoko

Do you guys remember Ibrahima Bakayoko?

I used to play A LOT in Premier Manager 98, and Bakayoko was one of the best players there. He was definitely in the top 10, alongside Maldini and the original Ronaldo.

Check out his stats from that game:

Not sure if Ibrahima Bakayoko or Lionel Messi.
