Jason Whitlock likes grabbing headlines. He says some really dumb, stupid things and we pay attention because they are dumb and stupid. His latest pointless diatribe was against Andrew Wiggins and his being from Canada. Whitlock’s latest baseless, and completely bigoted, claim is that Wiggins “struggled” at Kansas because players from Canada do not want […]
When the site is called Crossover Chronicles, how appropriate it is to have a video all about… crossovers!
And seeing how the 2014 NBA Summer League is a wrap, it will be some time before NBA fans see any hardwood action. Unless you count the 2014 FIBA World Cup kicking off next month but I digress.
Feast your eyes on some of the sickest crossovers the Summer league gave us.
The Donald Sterling saga will not end. A few weeks ago, Sterling was in court fighting his estranged(?) wife for control of the trust which owns the Clippers. No decision was made as of yet and so Steve Ballmer and the Clippers are kept in limbo. This delay and questions about the Clippers’ future, as […]
The Lakers had such dreams for the offseason. Even with Kobe Bryant coming off a season where he played all of six games before injuries to his knee forced him out for the remainder of the season. He still signed a two-year extension worth $48.5 million. That will tie the Lakers cap up somewhat to […]
When you are an NBA player, the last thing you would think is that an amateur player would get the best of you.
That was not the case for Knicks’ J.R. Smith at the Drew League.
While trying to stop a fast break, Smith went up for the block but was just a tad late and got posterized in the process.
Check it out.
Being a restricted free agent sucks. The last two major pieces of free agency this summer have been stuck in a holding pattern because of restricted free agency. Potential suitors have been scared off of Greg Monroe and Eric Bledsoe knowing full well the Pistons and Suns are likely to match any offer they would […]
Houston’s James Harden is part of a team of NBA players who will be taking part in a charity event in Manila to help the Filipino men’s national squad get ready for the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain next month.
To promote the exhibition games set to kick off this week, Harden (along with a number of other NBA stars) was a guest on a Filipino TV show where one of the hosts asked Harden if he will be marrying any Filipino women while he is in town.
Talk about awkward!
Harden responded with a shaky, “No comment,” while the host simply laughed.
Check out the awkward moment (h/t Project Spurs) at the 4:00 point of the video below.
When Charles Barkley was lacing up his sneakers in the NBA, there was no doubt he was one of the greatest to ever play the game.
But when it comes to his golf game, well that’s a different story.
Barkley teed off at the Tahoe for the American Century Championship where he showed the world how NOT to play golf. You know, one-handed swings, the wrong form, and much more.
Check it out.
What do you get when you combine Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony and a character out of “The Lord of the Rings”?
I have no words but if you have to know what is going on here, take a look at this video.

The whole NBA world stood still waiting for LeBron James to make his move.
When he finally decided to leave the Heat and return home to play for the Cavaliers, the whole NBA world seemed to turn on its head.
How do we know? Check out the graphic above from Rob Mahoney of Sports Illustrated. It cannot get any clearer than that . . . OK, maybe that is not so clear.

The contenders are going through their yearly turnovers, looking to find themselves and continue their dominance over the league. They are watching the other teams make moves to get closer to what they have. The Spurs and Thunder have stayed relatively quiet this summer as the Heat went through major changes and the Pacers saw […]
LeBron James‘ decision about where to sign his contract for free agency was about making something right that was wrong. It was also about winning. He looked at the landscape of the Miami Heat and the health of Dwyane Wade and was not convinced he had a chance to win. Yes, winning in Cleveland was […]
As Las Vegas Summer League begins to wrap up with its <ahem> playoffs, we will be bereft of basketball until late August when the FIBA World Cup begins in Spain.
A week ago, the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League wrapped up with the Sixers winning the <ahem> championship.
I was covering the event and still have a lot coming up from Summer League to share with you all. For now, I recapped what I saw from the 10 teams that came to Orlando with James Plowright and Nick Denning of The Lottery Mafia on the latest edition of their podcast:
The Brooklyn Nets decided to put an end to their mascot, the Brooklyn Knight. The Brooklyn Knight was, how can I say this, a complete joke. It was a sad attempt by the franchise to capitalize on the wildly popular comic hero genre by creating a mascot complete with silver armor plating and a “B” […]
This is just awesome.
Marcin Gortat has been tearing up the NBA offseason. Whether it be him having a freaking tank at his basketball camp in his home country or this news update on his own contract with the Wizards.
Gortat hosted a Washington D.C. news show to give an update on his own contract situation with the Wiz (h/t PBT).
