What would you do if you really loved your favorite NBA team? Paint your face at a game? Sure! Buy all sorts of your favorite team’s gear? Of course!
How about quitting your day job to attend all 82 regular season games?
Well that is exactly what one Knicks super fan did!
After being unhappy as a lawyer in New York City, and finding out he was on the verge of being fired, this Knicks fan began the odyssey to follow his team.
This Knicks fan spoke with NBA Radio on Sirius XM about his commitment to be at every Knicks game (home and away) and admitted he appreciates the travel NBA players have to endure.
Toronto has the best fanbase in the NBA, at least according to the numbers. The Raptors have the highest home game attendance in the league right now with the Portland Trailblazers, Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Miami Heat in that order. However, we all know that is not the order of the best fanbases in the […]
In this week’s MVP rankings, DeMarcus Cousins pulls ahead. It was just a week ago that Anthony Davis and Cousins combined for 52 points — 28 for Davis and 24 for Cousins. These are your two front runners for MVP. Their teams are not necessarily considered Playoff teams.
Last week, Kentucky unleashed its talent on an unsuspecting basketball public. Playing on national TV against Kansas at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in front of a host of NBA scouts and executives the Kentucky monolith — featuring likely Lottery picks for next year Karl Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein, Dakari Johnson and Andrew Harrison — the squad of […]
Kendrick Perkins, the 27th pick overall in 2003 was sent to Boston where is career began to bloom from 2008-2011. During the 2011 season the NBA champion was shipped to Oklahoma City. Since then it seems as if the big man from Texas can’t catch a break.
When most players come under scrutiny they let their game do the talk. Unfortunately for Kendrick Perkins, there is not much to talk about.
Marreese Speights “It’s just Perkins always got something to say. He thinks he’s a tough guy but @ the end of the day his game is terrible.”

It even seems as if the Thunder tried to send Perkins a message last season when they took “team” selfies.

The obvious answer to the question, does anyone like Kendrick Perkins, is no. Many players are not fans of his physical, foul-heavy game. He may not be the defensive force he once was, but he made a name for himself in Boston as an old-school bruiser. Heck, Perkins was one of the few players that could actually give Dwight Howard some trouble when he used to play for the Magic. A big man like that is few and far between. That’s why, at the time, the Thunder trading for Perkins seemed like the best option to make them a legitimate playoff threat. It worked, for a little bit.
Now even though it seems like not a single Kendrick Perkins exists on this planet. I’m sure Kendrick Perkins’ still has one fan. I’ll put big money on his most die-hard fan, like most of us, is his mother. She would never leave him out of a family selfie. You go Momma Perkins! Someone has to love that big grizzly man.
The early season storyline for big men has been Anthony Davis this and DeMarcus Cousins that. Sure, LeBron James and Chris Paul are still part of the MVP conversation. Kevin Durant has not gotten started and Derrick Rose has had his false starts. Davis and Cousins are it — the guys that have blown everyone […]
Anthony Davis is a stud in the NBA. Its next rising star. Everyone sees this. Everyone sees his soaring blocks and monstrous numbers. His dynamic offensive game that is a mix of speed, size and power with finesse around the rim and an underrated, improving jumper. This is a dominant player in the making that […]
James Harden defense memes are all over the place. It has become the running joke in the NBA. Harden even took time this week to make fun of his own defensive shortcoming.
It is never too early to start thinking about the All-Star game and who might make it. There are going to be the guys you expect like Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kevin Love and . . . you get the idea. Well, what about the guys who are playing well, but get no love? […]
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 […]
“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.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
