After months, and months, and months of speculation as to whether or not the Boston Celtics would trade the last remaining piece of the core that won a NBA championship in 2008 C’s general manager Danny Ainge has reportedly finally found the right deal for Celtics’ point guard Rajon Rondo;
Just last week on one of my favorite basketball podcasts, NBA After Dark, the Grantland co-hosts brought up media coverage of NBA injuries and the spectacle of mourning for wounded players. The discussion centered around DeMar DeRozan and the torn tendon in his groin — an injury that will keep him out for about a month — and how […]
The Portland Trail Blazers (19-6) sit atop the Northwest Division in the Western Conference with the surging Oklahoma City Thunder (12-13) still seven games back in the race for homecourt advantage come playoff time, but why don’t the Blazers feel like serious contenders? On paper, the Blazers have quietly put together one of the deepest […]
On Monday, news broke that Josh McRoberts—the Miami Heat’s second-biggest summer acquisition—tore his meniscus and was feared to miss the rest of the season. McRoberts, signed for four years and $23 million after a career year in Charlotte with the then-Bobcats, struggled to get into the lineup early this season due to nagging foot, back […]
When Orlando opted to start Victor Oladipo at point guard last season — en route to a 23-59 mess — it was interpreted by many as pragmatism, an attempt to better its chances of winning the 2014 NBA Lottery. Oladipo is not a traditional lead guard, and as a rookie surrounded by an uninspiring roster, the former Hoosier […]
With the Sacramento Kings parting ways with Michael Malone it seems that the city of Sacramento has fully committed to recruiting George Karl. In a Tweet Karl posted earlier this morning… My phone battery went from 100% to 50% from all these Twitter notifications….. — George Karl (@CoachKarl22)
With the 2014-15 NBA season a fourth of the way completed, time is running out for head coaches leading underachieving squads, like, Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans for instance, but essentially nobody expected the proverbial hourglass to be empty for Sacramento Kings head coach Mike Malone. But all the sand had reached the […]
There’s no doubt Lakers’ Nick Young is beyond confident on the court however after hitting the three pointer which netted LA a recent win over the defending champ – Spurs – “Swaggy P” wanted to show everyone just how great he is. Enter Michael Jackson! Nick posted on his Instagram a photoshopped picture of his […]
He can knock down threes with ease and now it seems Spurs’ Marco Belinelli can also make great rap video cameos.
I do not speak Italian but from what I can gather from the video, Marco seems to be the center of attention of this song.
From his standing in the background bobbing his head, on the court taking shots at the rim to Belinelli lip syncing, this video has it all (h/t Project Spurs).
Things are bad in L.A. And I mean reallllyyyy bad!
Aside from sitting at the bottom of the Pacific Division at 6-16, Kobe Bryant absolutely went on on teammates and Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak including Kobe calling out Mitch for assembling a horrible roster in a recent practice session.
Check out Kobe ripping into his team and hear when he call out Kupchak right in front of the entire team! Poor Mitch. He just stood there and absolutely was berated by Bryant.
WARNING – NSFW LANGUAGE!
I get it. Frustration may have set in for the ultra competitive Bryant but come on Mamba! How is this tirade going to help the situation?
It’s no secret that the Detroit Pistons have been a trainwreck for the past seasons as a casualty of a strangely constructed roster loaded with talent but lacking in any sort of basketball chemistry. That losing culture was supposed to change, at least somewhat, this season due to the team’s offseason hiring of veteran coach […]
What better way to embarrass children than to have their dad dance so awkward and have video of it being shown to over 15,000 people in an NBA arena.
Well that’s exactly what the Spurs did as they recently trotted out the “Awkward Dad Dance Cam,” and from the look of the video below, it is over-the-top awkward.
Imagine if this was YOUR dad shaking his booty in front of the masses. Ughhhh! Sit down dad! (more…)
Whoops! Recently, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, took in Cavs game and afterwards, got to meet the “King” himself, LeBron James. However, during a photo-op, James put his arm around Kate which apparently is something one doesn’t do overseas. In fact, it’s a huge breach of etiquette. Via Daily Mail: “Although I am […]
At 7-5, one would think… no expect a basketball player to patrol the paint and block and shot attempt at or near the rim. Well that’s exactly what 7-5 Sim Bhullar did in his debut game for the D-League’s Reno Bighorns blocking a whopping 6 shots against the LA Defenders. Check out the video of […]
If there’s any team in the NBA with more bad luck it has to be the Pacers. As if losing their cornerstone player, Paul George, to a devastating season-ending leg injury, now comes word big man Ian Mahinmi will be sidelined for up to 8 weeks with a foot injury. Indiana announced in a press release […]
