Jimmer Fredette has yet to find his niche in the NBA. Over his five year career, he’s played for five teams and averaged 6.0 ppg. Last season, Fredette saw action in just 6 games and averaged just 1.5 ppg. Hopefully he can find his way in China with Yao Ming’s team…..
Team USA is gearing up for the Olympics with some exhibition games. Team USA routed Nigeria 110-66 and DeMar DeRozan threw a little salt in the wound with this baseline dunk…..
NBA free agency is sort of like Christmas for kids. They get up, tear open presents at a clip that suggests they barely know what they’re getting, and then within a fairly short period of time, it’s over and you have the rest of the day where they sit around wondering where all the excitement […]
Tim Duncan probably got up at 6 a.m. with no alarm. Then, he went outside to get the newspaper, the kind you hold in your hand to read (darn kids and their Interwebs), poured himself a cup of coffee from beans he ground by himself, looked at the rotary phone he knew he’d use to […]

One of the group’s more memorable album covers, shown in the cover image above, is also the immediate headline after Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals: BACK TO OAKLAND.

The Oklahoma City lead early in game four against the Golden State Warriors. Here’s a steal by Kevin Durant which results in a dynamic dunk by Russell Westbrook…… Durant steal, Westbrook BOOM!
On December 15th, at the very end of a very long column about the Warriors’ first loss, I first wrote that I believed they would break the Bulls’ record for most wins in a season. The unspoken caveat was, of course, the dreaded injury. If a key player, like Steph Curry, or Klay Thompson, or […]
The reason I have been saying for a month or so now that I believe the Warriors will break the NBA record for wins rather easily was again exemplified at Oracle Arena Tuesday night. The Warriors win games they shouldn’t win. On Tuesday night they beat the Atlanta Hawks 109-105 in overtime. They accomplished this […]
Rarely is there a phrase in the English language more disagreed upon than “it’s all messed up” or some variation of that phrase. To one guy, the car just needs new tie rods and brake pads and she’ll be up and running in no time; to someone else, the car needs new tie rods and […]
The New York Knicks may have just gotten a little more interesting as they work to close the month of February out on a high note. Although still struggling at 24-34 on the year, the Knicks recently added a potential spark to their squad by signing New York native and former BYU star Jimmer Fredette […]
For the first time in its history, the NBA is taking its All-Star Weekend to the Queen City. The site of this year’s festivities, Toronto, is known for hockey, primarily the Toronto Maple Leafs, but the strong play of the Toronto Raptors has made the city very enthusiastic about basketball. Enthusiasm for the NBA has […]
In search of their first playoff appearance since 2006, the Sacramento Kings, who have a busy upcoming week, are in the thick of things in the Western Conference standings. George Karl, the ninth man to coach Sacramento in just over a decade, seems to have his scuffle with DeMarcus Cousins in the past, as the […]
NBA fans have enjoyed a glorious ride through the start of the 2015-16 season, one that has seen history being made by the defending champion Golden State Warriors and includes three elite teams that appear to be standing head and shoulders above the rest of the league. Golden State has slowed down some since their […]
