ESPN loves lists. They create hits and generate debate. That is what ESPN likes. For more commentary on that, visit our friends at Awful Announcing. We get drawn in as much as anyone. So do the players. And because of ESPN’s reach, they have clout. Media ask the players about and they get responses. And, […]
Thursday, Jimmy Butler scored 29 points on 8-for-14 shooting and 12-for-16 shooting from the foul line in 30-plus minutes. His game-winning 3-pointer sent the United Center into a frenzy and even got Tom Thibodeau pumped.
Of course, why were the starters playing in the fourth quarter against the Hawks’ second unit in the fourth quarter? Thibs’ methods are quite mysterious.
With less than two weeks to go until the NBA’s regular season begins, the Detroit Pistons and Boston Celtics have exchanged role players in a rare one-for-one trade.

I don’t even know where to begin. It seems Knicks center Amar’e Stoudemire likes to bathe using red wine. Yes, you heard me. Red freaking wine! This is what you get to do when you make NBA money. You get to bathe in red wine. I am sure it is for some medical reason but […]
Talk about a sign your time in the NBA might be over. Lakers guard Steve Nash is old by NBA standards at 40 years old. While many players might be well into retirement or riding the bench, Nash still feels he has what it takes to produce on the NBA level but after hurting his […]
A year after a disappointing 36-46 season, the Denver Nuggets will look to rebound in 2014-15. The first year under head coach Brian Shaw did not end well, though injuries played a large part in the underwhelming play.
