Best of the Web: Jay-Z planning concerts around LeBron James, Brandon Roy’s game-winner, and the ghost of Adam Morrison

HoopsVibe’s Breaking Down The NBA Blog regularly provides a snapshot of the best NBA stories you should be reading from the three dubyas. We call it Best of the Web …

Did rapper and New Jersey Nets owner Jay-Z really organize a concert around LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ schedule? Is this two friends catching up or a ploy by Hova to enhance the Nets’ chances of signing The King this summer?

Speaking of those Nets … Will they win 10 games?

Howard the Dunk has info on Orlando prepping for the playoffs, while the True Hoop Network has details on the Magic blowing a lead and still beating the Heat. And Orlando Pinstriped has news on glue-guy and twitter king Matt Barnes’ toe injury.

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s amazing 2009-10 season will get even better when the playoffs arrive. Daily Thunder has a piece on what to expect

Peninsula is Mightier has a game report for last night’s Heat-Magic game. The folks blogging about South Beach’s team rightfully point out that Dwyane Wade needs a real, legit’ co-star. 

Brandon Roy had missed 14 straight shots, yet still had the confidence to take and make a last second buzzer beater against the Washington Wizards. True Hoop’s newest signee, Portland Roundball Society, has post game interviews and reaction.

Hoopinion looks at the role forgotten man Mike Bibby will have in the Atlanta Hawks’ success. Right now, the former Vancouver Grizzly is often sitting behind Jamal Crawford in crunch time, so how things unfold during the playoffs should be interesting. Personally, I think the Hawks need both Bibby and Crawford on-court and performing to defeat the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, and/or Orlando Magic.

Does that shaggy-haired dude sitting on the L.A. Lakers’ bench look familiar? Well, Adam Morrison was once an NCAA stud at Gonzaga and, with March Madness upon us, Dimemag has a throwback for your viewing pleasure.

Of course, the HoopsVibe family has thoughts on everything:

  1. The great Jesse Andrews looks at Cap’n Jack’s influence in Charlotte.
  2. John Nguyen is getting after the top ten basketball games of all time.
  3. CYE has a feature interview with CBS college basketball analyst Seth Davis.
