Kobe Bryant takes Iggy Azalea over Swaggy P

Buh-dum, buh-dum, buh-dum, buh-da-da-dee-dum…

Summer lovin’, havin’ a blast. Summer lovin’ happened so fast.

Met a boy, Swaggy as can be/met a girl who is an Aussie

Summer days drifting away . . . on that Summer night

But, now those summer days are gone . . . it is time to start the season. Nick Young is being pulled away from his summer romance and back to school training camp and it is time for the harsh realities.

Nick Young may not have the most swag on the team. That title goes to Kobe Bryant.

And Bryant knows who he would pick . . .

Chris Bosh heads back to the post

LeBron James effectively made Chris Bosh a glorified spot-up shooter. Yes, Bosh still made the All-Star Game (and has made the All-Star game for the last eight years), but how much of that had to do with his being a member of the Heat and their attention-gathering, winning ways. Bosh had to fill a role […]

Checking in with the Spurs after media day

The fellas over at Project Spurs, Jeff Garcia and Aaron Preine, attended media day for the San Antonio Spurs and though Aaron thought it was uneventful, there were comments from Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili that may have caught NBA fans off guard.

Duncan revealed how close he was to retiring after last season and Ginobili made it known he is still miffed at the Spurs for not letting him play for Team Argentina at the 2014 FIBA World Cup this summer.

The duo also touched on the re-signing of center Aron Baynes, and for those of you who stay tuned for the entire video, there’s a special Easter Egg waiting to be discovered.

See if you can wait to see what it is!

Could Keith Bogans help the Cavs land Roy Hibbert?

There have been a number of innocuous trades and roster moves as training camps get set to start. Nothing major. No James Harden trade to wake us up before the season starts or clue us into any master plans. Just minor things. Like whenKeith Bogans was shipped from Boston to Cleveland for the non-guaranteed contracts […]

Deron Williams and Kobe Bryant engage in an unlikely war of words

It is no secret Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets has not been all that great in the past few seasons. He was consistently one of the few best point guards in the NBA throughout his time in Utah, and after a decent start with New Jersey/Brooklyn, injuries have claimed a lot of his productivity. So it is […]

Warriors’ new jerseys look like their new stadium

Hey, it is a new NBA season and we get new jerseys right? The Pelicans unveiled their red alternates. The Warriors are next up with their new black sleeved jerseys.

And since their latest unveil did not exactly circle the drain of positive public opinion cleanly . . .

This one took up a similar criticism:

Every year there are new rookies in the league. But I am going to talk to you about the rookie head coaches. There seems to be a fair amount of them this season and they all enter into different team situations. So I thought it would be fun to explore what might happen to them this […]

LeBron James opens up about race controversies with CNN

LeBron James is the standard bearer in the NBA right now as the league’s best player. Unlike Michael Jordan, who subscribed to the “Republicans also buy shoes” attitude of social activism as an athlete, James has not been afraid to let his voice be heard as a prominent person in society. He has tried to use his celebrity for some type of activism and social awareness.

James gave an interview to CNN’s Rachel Nichols and discussed several controversial issues in the sports world.

He spoke about the racial controversies in the NBA today, including his relationship with former Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry. He also spoke about how he discussed the Ray Rice and the domestic violence controversies in the NFL with his two sons.

Well, we have our first injury of the season. And it is a weird one. The Celtics announced Rajon Rondo had to undergo surgery to repair a broken hand and will be out 6-8 weeks. Meaning he is likely out until just before Thanksgiving. How did he break his hand? Well, kind of a funny […]

Wizards and Cavaliers Primed for four regular season matchups

The Wizards finally catapulted themselves into the playoff conversation for good last year, as John Wall and company won their first round playoff series and even gave the Indiana Pacers a solid fight in round two. After adding veteran presence Paul Pierce in free agency […]

Who are the NBA’s fighters?

LeBron James was the toast of the NBA this summer, shaping the league by his second decision. Fellow draft classmates Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh shaped the NBA in their image too with their free agent decisions the last five years. The league was changed forever by the 2003 Draft Class. And then […]
