Divorces are always nasty, even when they are necessary. Kevin Love has been largely quiet even as everyone knew he wanted out of Minnesota or that his talent needed to escape the wasteland that has become the Timberwolves — no Playoff appearances in the last decade speaks for itself. It was time for both the […]
Spurs’ Tony Parker was recently in China to promote his new line of PEAK sneakers and while he was there, he really decided to immerse himself into the Chinese culture.
How did he do that you might ask? Simple – he dressed up like a Chinese Dragon.
You know, those costumes that take a few people to operate during parades.
I guess this was a case of “when in Rome.” Or should I say, “When in China.”

For what felt like years, Kevin Love — drafted with the fifth overall pick in the 2008 draft by the Timberwolves — made it clear that he wanted to finish his career outside of the Twin Cities. A California native, who grew up in Oregon but matriculated to play at UCLA, it was always the […]
He likes big weddings and he cannot lie!
Jamal Crawford got hitched recently so what better way to usher in this new chapter of his life than to have Sir Mix-A-Lot perform at his wedding.
Talk about a wedding reception.

When you are a new NBA player there are a lot of things to be concerned about. Can you handle the travel and pressure of the top level of basketball? Can you handle . . . the basketball? That is a serious question. Do you know what an actual, Spalding, official game-issue basketball feels like? […]
Bloguin’s own Project Spurs recently had a roundtable to discuss some of the bigger topics surrounding the NBA champs?
What about the hire and impact of Becky Hammon now an assistant coach? Will it be a distraction?
Boris Diaw Tiago Splitter and Aron Baynes are playing at the 2014 FIBA World Cup and should fans be worried about a possible injury?
The Spurs also have one roster spot left. What will they do with that open seat?
Check out Project Spurs as they break it all down for Spurs fans.
You may not have noticed last year, but EA Sports’ NBA Live series did come back. Kyrie Irving was the cover athlete. It is OK if you did not notice. It was the first edition in NBA Live since the failed NBA Live 10 with Dwight Howard on the cover. The supposedly revolutionary NBA Elite […]
Ricky Rubio should be feeling pretty excited right now with the athletes coming onto what we can essentially call his team. The Spanish wunderkind too his sweet time getting to the United States, lighting up YouTube with great ball-handling and impressive passes. Teamed up with Kevin Love, he helped make plenty of highlights but not […]
Stephen Curry deserves your attention. He is a great shooter — maybe the best shooter in the league. The Warriors have been feverishly trying to figure out how best to take advantage of Curry and his talents. Mark Jackson helped transform the Warriors into a solid defensive team with his deadly outside shooting, sometimes hiding […]
You’ve seen them, you know about it and of course I’m talking about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos to help bring ALS awareness to the forefront.
Many pro-athletes have done the challenge but Spurs’ Matt Bonner’s attempt was lame!
Bonner was raring to go, had a huge bucket of ice cold water ready, called out teammates Marco Belinelli and Bruce Bowen and when it came time to dump the water on him, he trotted a wee cup of water!
Good thing there was someone near by to pour an entire bucket of water on the “Red Mamba.” (H/T Project Spurs).
After Friday night’s blowout win over Puerto Rico at Madison Square Garden, Mike Krzyzewski and his coaching staff reportedly sat in a room to make a final decision of their 12-man roster before heading to Spain for one last friendly (against Slovenia on Tuesday) and then the beginning of the FIBA World Cup one week […]
There was a dunk contest when the rookie got together a few weeks ago for their trading card photo shoots and rookie transition program. Each one challenged the next on Twitter to top their dunks. You had Andrew Wiggins challenging Zach LaVine challenging Aaron Gordon challenging Jabari Parker. The video was pretty entertaining and exciting […]
Following Wednesday’s blowout victory over Dominican Republic, there are still some rough edges around this Team USA that have to be figured out. Yes, the U.S. destroyed the Dominican Republic in a somewhat hostile crowd at Madison Square Garden, but the Americans were more talented and far deeper than their upcoming Group C opponents. Some […]
It was not too long ago that some intrepid blogger thought up what it would be like for teams only to have players from their designated areas. There was Kevin Durant on the Wizards, and LeBron James on the Cavaliers (things that could really happen), Derrick Rose on the Bulls (wait…) and Dwight Howard on […]
Since the 1970s, much has changed in the sport of basketball and the NBA. The three-point line has been instituted for more than 30 years, 30 (up from less than 20) teams are now in the league and players command salaries that dwarf what the stars of the day used to make. The NBA has become […]
