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 […]
Oh, Paul George. We are going to miss you as these are our only highlights of you for the rest of the year.
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 […]

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 […]
Spurs’ Manu Ginobili is know for hitting impossible shots.
From clutch-deep three’s to circus shots when driving in the lane, Manu has made the impossible look possible.
And then there’s this shot from Manu from a commercial in his home country of Argentina.
First he has a CGI basketball to start the commercial but no CGI is needed when a real basketball is in Manu’s hands and he nails a behind-the-back shot no where near the basket (h/t Project Spurs).
Anyone want to challenge Manu to a game of H.O.R.S.E.?
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 […]
The Los Angeles Clippers come into this season with a new owner after former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer bought the team. The Clippers this year have brought back many of the same players and have added several new additions. They are expected to once again be one of the elite teams in the NBA. While […]
The Washington Wizards are a fringe playoff team no more. 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 […]
Every year there are those story lines that people love to talk up about the season and then end up becoming moot points. Well, these are just the opposite. These are the story lines no one is talking about that could determine the season for some teams. Now I wish I could guarantee these holding […]
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 […]
It is better to have loved Love than to have never loved Love at all. Of course, it is a lot harder for more than five million Minnesotans to rest peacefully at night knowing their beloved Timberwolves, who have not been to the playoffs since 2004, are back on track to defend their title of longest post-season drought. […]
Were you aware of Donald Sterling’s reputation then?
When the draft lottery came out and the Clippers said they were gonna draft me, I went to Google to find out more about the Clippers, because I didn’t know a lot. And I was like, “Okay, team owned by Donald Sterling.” So then I typed in “Donald Sterling” in Google, and the first thing that pops up is “Donald Sterling racist.” And I was like, “Whoa!” So obviously I explored that, read a whole bunch of articles, read the deposition at one of his court cases. Which was awesome, if you ever have time to read some of the depositions. [laughs]
Is it true that he would bring women in to the locker room to watch players shower?
He would bring them in the locker room. Guys would be in there. The showers are kind of elsewhere. I don’t think they would really go back there. But he would bring people in the locker room while we were just in towels. One year he came in and led a “hip hip hooray” chant and held my arm up in the air. Then he went to another teammate and did the same thing. Guys just started scattering as fast as possible. [laughs]
