Waiting for the lockout to end to make his professional debut was obviously out of the question for former BYU guard Jimmer Fredette.

Jimmer didn’t disappoint, finishing with 27 points, 10 assists and six rebounds […]

World Peace Makes DWTS Debut

Lakers forward Metta World Peace made his debut on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars last night, stumbling out of the gates and delivering an uncomfortable-to-watch performance.

Hawks’ Johnson Takes Shoe Addiction To The Next Level

We’ve all heard about athletes with shoe addictions before, but it appears Atlanta Hawks guard Joe Johnson takes the cake. Not too long ago I saw a YouTube video of Spurs draftee Ryan Richards showing off his sneaker collection of about 60 pairs of shoes all stacked up and against a wall. I consider myself […]

Several NBA players were missing from national team rosters for the FIBA Americas Championship that concluded last week in Argentina.

Erving, Russell Among New Legends In NBA 2K12

If you thought NBA 2K11 was one of the best basketball sims ever like i did, 2K Sports is upping the ante even more for the much-anticipated release of NBA 2K12 on October 4. While I loved the Jordan challenges and old school teams in last year’s game, I had two things on my wish […]

Lakers, Knicks could lose most from ticket revenue losses

I’ve said many times this summer that the NBA lockout is a lose-lose situation. While players can look for more work overseas, owners, fans and gameday staff could stand to lose the most from the lockout. TiqIq, a third party ticket aggregator and provider, crunched the numbers to let us know exactly how much teams could […]

Is The Lockout Hindering Player Development?

One thing I always look forward to in the offseason is summer league.  It’s a chance for the teams to test drive their draft picks, look at the undrafted, sort out the pieces, and shop for needs.  Sadly, with the current lockout, teams can do none of these things. As a Charlotte Bobcats blogger, I was definitely […]

Mavs Looking To Ink Butler Long Term

After the Dallas Mavericks won their first championship with third-leading scorer Caron Butler left chewing straws in street clothes on the sidelines, many felt Butler was expendable.

Could Kevin Love Be Next Multi-Sport Athlete?

Charity Game Brings NBA Players Back To Seattle

While the Drew and Goodman leagues in Los Angeles and Washington D.C. have been grabbing major headlines lately due to both teams boasting rosters with major NBA talent, Seattle, of all cities, proved this weekend that they have just as much talent.

Warriors teammates could be China-bound

According to Marcus Thompson II of the Oakland Tribune, Golden State Warriors teammates Stephen Curry and Dorell Wright could join forces again next season…in China.
