Rajon Rondo thinks the Bulls’ reasons for benching him are ‘bullshit’

We’re just 38 games into the Rajon Rondo-Chicago Bulls era and Rondo is already calling out the team. In a hardly surprising series of events, Rondo is letting loose about his feelings about the Bulls and head coach Fred Hoiberg. This comes following the Chicago guard being a benched and missing his own bobblehead night. […]

Joel Embiid has the Sixers finally believing in The Process

Can the Philadelphia 76ers really make the playoffs behind Joel Embiid? In the moments following a 105-95 win on Sunday over the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center, hundreds, if not thousands, of Philadelphia 76ers fans lingered to chant “Trust the process” and “MVP” to rookie wunderkind center Joel Embiid, a 22-year-old who’s helping this franchise […]

Hey, remember Royce White? He’s balling out in Canada now

Royce White is perhaps the most famous recent example of how professional sports is not yet equipped to put players with special mental health requirements in the best positions to succeed. White was a standout for Fred Hoiberg at Iowa State, but had difficulty transitioning to the professional game for a variety of reasons. Here’s […]

Derrick Rose was mysteriously absent from tonight’s Knicks game

Shortly before the New York Knicks and New Orleans Pelicans tipped off at Madison Square Garden on Monday night, the Knicks’ PR released a tweet saying that point guard Derrick Rose was not with the team: And it’s not just that Rose wasn’t with the team, but The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that as of […]

Joel Embiid hits porn star Mia Khalifa with painfully terrible comeback

Mia Khalifa hit Joel Embiid where it hurts, and Embiid responded with… well, something. This fun little feud started when Embiid posted a photograph of him and 76ers teammates Ben Simmons and Nerlens Noel with Philly rapper Meek Mill. The Daltons !!!! A photo posted by Joel “The Process” Embiid (@joelembiid) on Jan 8, 2017 at 5:36pm […]

bucks-danceoff

This young Bucks fan was a miserable wreck after showing his best dab attempt during a dance-off

If you’ve attended an average amount of sporting events, you’ve likely seen the typical three-person dance contest, whose winner is decided by a fan cheering vote. For me, this is usually a good reason to go get another beer. This dance contest, sadly, is actually worth watching. During a break in Sunday’s Milwaukee Bucks-Washington Wizards game, […]

The New York Knicks are definitely not a ‘super team’

This offseason Derrick Rose opened his mouth and handed the media another reason to believe the Knicks would fail this season. Rose braggingly implied the 2016-17 New York Knicks were a “super team” this offseason. The remarks were bizarre and hilariously short sighted and maybe the dumbest thing an NBA player has said in a long, […]

Mark Jackson thinks ESPN is too pro-Golden State with its coverage

Mark Jackson is an interesting figure in broadcasting. He’s one of those guys who is certainly unafraid to say what’s on his mind, but in Jackson’s case that can work against him, since what’s on his mind is often quite a bit out there. Like when he brought up Richard Jefferson costing a Jackson-coached Golden […]

The best internet beef involves Smash Mouth and Draymond Green

2017 may already be the best year on record, we have irrelevant rock band Smash Mouth tweeting trash at Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green. If that doesn’t constitute an A+ twitter beef, we may have ourselves an issue. Smash Mouth’s twitter account tweeted at the Warriors big man after the team blew a substantial […]

Can Donatas Motiejunas make New Orleans Pelicans a playoff team?

The New Orleans Pelicans are slowly improving in their quest to not waste the prime years of Anthony Davis’ standout career. Davis, still just 23, has made the playoffs just once in his first four full NBA seasons, which is essentially a basketball crime for a player who has an identical career Player Efficiency Rating […]

Andrew Bogut

Mavs center Andrew Bogut has no desire to stay in Dallas

The season is not playing out well for the Dallas Mavericks, and center Andrew Bogut is ready to get himself out of there at the first possible opportunity. That’s how it seems at least based on recent comments made in an interview with Sky Sports Radio in Australia. Bogut made sure to mention he will […]

Russell Westbrook layup vs Charlotte

Russell Westbrook goes coast-to-coast on four dribbles in four seconds

The big headline coming out of Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook’s game against the Charlotte Hornets Wednesday may be the technical he got for accidentally hitting a referee in the head with the basketball, but the game was still a reminder that Westbrook can do amazingly positive things on the court as well. To […]
