Golden State Warriors fans were never afraid to criticize their old coach, Mark Jackson. The frustrations that he had simultaneously taken the team forward while also holding it back never ceased throughout his tumultuous final year. Warriors owner Joe Lacob went out of his way to criticize the former coach yet again this weekend. Right […]
DeMar DeRozan is the Raptors’ All Star. OK, maybe Kyle Lowry was more deserving last year and DeRozan is a bit too inconsistent to be an All Star, his place on last year’s team more of a team honor for how well the Raptors were playing than anything else. And DeRozan is good. In this […]
It took about a month into the season. It took some trials and tribulations. Some hard lessons learned from the young players and some teammates to get used to. The storyline followed the similar path that the Heat did when LeBron James joined the Heat. He had the experience to know to let things work […]
It is easy to look at the Warriors roster and just say “Splash Brothers.” The duo single handedly saved Golden State from a poor effort Tuesday when Curry drained three 3-pointers including the game-winner against the Magic. That is the, ahem, magic this duo can provide. They are never out of the game so long […]
Houston gets to be the butt of all our jokes. The Rockets have the talent to be a championship contender with James Harden and Dwight Howard anchoring the team and an offense that loves to spread the ball and hoist threes. The defense is also not bad, ranking third in the league with a 96.3 […]
Wait, that can’t be right? That says the Sixers won a game. It cannot be final yet. That is not how this thing works, right?
There will not be any sleeves this time. Nor will there be any strange two-toned or multi-colored jerseys when the NBA All Stars hit the floor at Madison Square Garden in February. The jerseys the All Stars will wear are surprisingly plain considering all the experimentation the NBA has gone through with jerseys during All-Star […]
This stat line was downright zany. One we have not really seen in quite some time. Well, except for from Kobe Bryant. Monta Ellis had it all and then some.
It is the common refrain — you either live by the 3-pointer, or die by it. Many teams have tried to build their offensive strategy around ball spacing, drive and kicks and making long-range shots. This age of analytics has put even more emphasis on the long-range shot. Of course, the Playoffs can change that […]
Tom Thibodeau might as well be the ringmaster of one of the most difficult coaching/managing jobs in the NBA. In one circle, he has Derrick Rose and his minute maintenance. The growing frustration over his in-and-out-of-the-lineup status continues to be a storyline that prevents the Bulls from being considered among the league’s elite. Rose shows […]

This is a different Bucks team. The record tells you as much — 10-7 and fourth in the Eastern Conference entering Sunday’s games. This is not the 2014 Bucks. The team’s disaster of a season last year — Brandon Knight not adequately replacing Brandon Jennings‘ production, Larry Sanders‘ constant injuries and issues and O.J. Mayo‘s struggles […]
By the time the Grizzlies took the floor at Moda Center on Friday night, they already knew the big news around the league. Russell Westbrook had thunderously announced his return by outscoring the Knicks through one quarter. It was like Westbrook did not miss a beat. His team has fallen a bit back into the […]
