At least LeBron James likes playing in Washington

The Cavaliers’ trip to Washington on Friday was a total loss.

John Wall scored 28 points. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving scored 22 points but got little help. The Cavaliers offense produced just 78 points and shot 36.0 percent from the floor. It was an ugly game for the Cavaliers. An ugly, ugly game that continues to show all the flaws the Cavaliers have. At least, so far.

We are waiting for the Cavaliers to wake up following the 91-78 loss at Verizon Center on Friday.

At least James enjoyed being back in front of a packed house in Washington.

Start those LeBron to Washington rumors now. At least it was not a total loss.

New Foot Locker commercial nails Tim Duncan’s reputation on the court

As if the latest San Antonio Spurs H-E-B videos were not enough, comes this new Foot Locker featuring “The Big Fundamental” himself, Tim Duncan which totally captures TD’s reputation as being an emotionless player.

In the commercial, two kids are excited for the release of new sneakers featuring some of the NBA’s biggest stars called, “The Week of Greatness.”

Enter Chicago’s Derrick Rose phoning Duncan where he is very “excited” to the point he tops over a small plant. Seriously, this commercial is spot on when it comes to Duncan’s on-court demeanor (h/t Project Spurs).

Detroit Pistons v Indiana Pacers

Remembering the Malice at the Palace 10 years later

It was around this time a decade ago that the worst fight in NBA history broke out. It was November 19, 2004 to be exact and it as a day that will not be easily forgotten. It is the reason you see so much security at NBA games and the reason that officers are on the […]

The Malice at the Palace . . . 10 years later

“I don’t think people in the league office ever thought that would happen. Ever since then, they’ve done their best to educate the fans and the players. More than that, they beefed up security. It would be very difficult for that to happen.

“I said it to a few people but, fans and players have to understand, fans especially, they’re playing and you’re watching for a reason. They have no business being in the crowd and you have no business being on the court.”

Pistons play-by-play announcer George Blaha as told to Vincent Goodwill, Jr. of The Detroit News

The fateful moment between the Pacers and Pistons occurred 10 years ago Wednesday.

Due to various factors, the Nuggets have become a laughingstock

The Denver Nuggets hired Brian Shaw, the highly sought-after coaching candidate who was an assistant with the Lakers under Phil Jackson, to his first head-coaching job in the NBA last summer with high hopes. At the time, Denver was a team brimming with potential and young, explosive player after another. The roster composition is still […]

Road trip bringing Clippers together

Two games down, two games won. Maybe that should have been expected for the Los Angeles Clippers starting their seven-game, 11-day trip to the East Coast which started with the two Florida teams. The Magic are still a developing team and the Heat are not quite what they used to be either. These are wins […]

Sorry Mark Cuban, Lakers won’t be bad forever

Tanking in the NBA has been a problem for years – unless you are logical like I am – then you realize tanking is not a problem at all. After all, it is always darkest before the dawn. But it is extremely difficult to label what the Los Angeles Lakers are doing as tanking. Letting […]

Mark Cuban hopes the Lakers suck forever

The Dallas Mavericks owner has never minced his words and has not always been eloquent with them either. This time is no different as he went on “The Fred Roggin Show” and proceeded to wish the worst the Lakers.

“As far as the Lakers, I think there’s gonna be a lot of teams that are going to be focusing and saying, ‘Look, I’ve got a ton of cap room — Free Agent A, B and C, why don’t you guys come together and come play for me.’ And L.A. has always been considered a destination, so maybe they see it as a valid strategy, I don’t know. But you know me, Fred, personally I just hope they suck forever.”

Cuban also said he wouldn’t be surprised to see Kobe Bryant play well into his 40′s. Perhaps that’s a warning to future free agent, maybe not. Cuban is one mischievous dude and he’s going to use any edge he can find to attract free agents or at the very least, detract them from L.A.

Bradley Beal is close to a return

Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal is on the up and up after suffering a fractured left wrist in an October preseason game. Coach Randy Wittman did not give an exact date on a return for the prolific shooter, but is hoping that the game against the Cavaliers on Friday is a realistic return date.
