No one wants Lance Stephenson

Which team wouldn’t want a player to blow in opposing player’s ears, take questionable shots, and basically never know which player they’ll get each night? Well that’s what’s probably dooming the Hornets and Lance Stephenson as reports state no team wants to trade for him. Charlotte will reportedly keep Lance for the season “for now” and […]

Is Kevin Durant Under Appreciated?

The biggest news coming from the Thunder – Warriors matchup last night is that Thunder forward Kevin Durant suffered what appeared to be a gruesome ankle sprain. What many people are forgetting, or may have not even noticed is that, prior to injury, Kevin Durant was able to score 30 points in just 20 minutes. […]

NBA: Houston Rockets at Minnesota Timberwolves

Corey Brewer is now firmly entrenched on the trade block

A month after first offering him up to other teams as a useful veteran, the Minnesota Timberwolves have put swingman Corey Brewer back on the trading block yet again as the team enters a rebuilding mode in the wake of star forward Kevin Love’s trade departure this offseason. Brewer, 28, isn’t a star by any […]

NBA injury culture and what Milwaukee will look like without Jabari Parker

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 […]

Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

76ers prepare for grueling seven game road trip

The Philadelphia 76ers are the bottom dwellers of the NBA. They have the NBA’s worst record (2-22). They are currently on a four game losing streak. The 76ers are really struggling to score as they are the worst offensive team in the league averaging 91.3 points per game. While they have massive offensive woes, they aren’t much better […]

Why do the Portland Trail Blazers not feel like contenders?

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 […]

Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

With Josh McRoberts expected to miss rest of season, Heat lose a key player

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 […]

George Karl to Sacramento?

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)

What exactly is going on in Sacramento?

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 […]

Marco Belinelli in a rap video? Yes please!

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).

Video: Kobe Bryant unleashed!

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?
