GIF: Wily Kobe Bryant Forces James Harden To Block-Out Francisco Garcia

Kobe Bryant

Is this what Kobe Bryant meant by saying that he’d play differently but just as effectively this season? Not specifically, but exercising more of the veteran savvy shown here would surely help Bryant help the Los Angeles Lakers. Watch the future Hall-of-Famer force James Harden to box-out Francisco Garcia on a free throw by pushing the Houston Rockets teammates into one another. Read More »

Nike Vetos Tribute Sneaker After Iverson Objects

Nike Zoom Flight 96 Allen Iverson Tribute

For his entire career, Allen Iverson has been sponsored by Reebok. The iconic Question and Answer lines owed most of their popularity to AI’s ability to equate his on-court brilliance with off-court popularity. Nike was going to release the Nike Zoom Flight iteration commemorating the 1996 Draft class, and Iverson got his own tongue-in-cheek commemorative shoe. Well, AI didn’t take kindly to his likeness being used by a competitor and so Nike will not offer the Nike Zoom Flight 96 to the public. Read More »

After helping his team to a road win against the Dwight Howard-less Houston Rockets last night, Young clarified the definition of “swag” by evoking a pair of pop music legends. Read More »

Stan Van Gundy Benches Josh Smith After “Jawing Session” About Defense

Stan Van Gundy

It wasn’t just Markieff Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who got into it last night during the Suns-Pistons game. It seems Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy and forward Josh Smith had a verbal altercation when J Smoove was subbed out with a few minutes left in the third quarter. He did not return in the 88-86 Suns win. Read More »

Kevin Love On Role With Cavs: “I’m Just Trying To Find Myself In This Offense”

Kevin Love, LeBron James

Lost in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ overall mediocrity to open the season have been Kevin Love’s struggles. The former Minnesota Timberwolves go-to guy knew he’d face an adjustment playing with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, but surely didn’t think it would be so daunting. Love is shooting below 39 percent from the field over the Cavs’ first 10 games, and has the lowest true shooting percentage (54.9) and PER (17.55) since his rookie year. He reached a nadir in last night’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs, too, scoring a season-low 10 points on 12 shots. Read More »

Markieff Morris Says Caldwell-Pope Missed The Game-Winner Because “He Doesn’t Have Any Heart”

Markieff Morris, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

It started when Markieff Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope got into a face-to-face jawing match midway through the second quarter of last night’s Suns-Pistons game. It ended when Caldwell-Pope missed what would have been a game-winning three-pointer with a second left on the clock and Morris claimed afterwards he wasn’t worried about Caldwell-Pope’s open look because “he doesn’t have any heart.” Read More »

Video: Dirk Nowitzki Rolls Ankle, Then Comes Back To Hit Clutch 3 In Mavs Win

Dirk Nowitzki

With a shade under eight minutes to play in last night’s Wizards-Mavericks game at the Verizon Center in DC, Bradley Beal — in his first game of the season, after returning from injury — knocked down another three-pointer to give the Wizards an 85-84 advantage. At the same time, Dirk Nowitzki rolled his ankle on the back of Kris Humphries‘ foot. Dirk would leave, but the all-time leader in points scored by a foreign-born player would return and show why he’s a champion and future Hall of Famer. Read More »

Brandan Wright Climbs The Ladder On KEvin Seraphin

Brandan Wright

We’re not sure Wizards forward Kevin Seraphin knew what was coming when he elected to get in front of Mavericks center Brandan Wright after he rolled to the hoop last night. J.J. Barea had used the Wright screen to get into the lane, but then he lobbed a pass to the 6-10 Wright and it was Chutes and Ladders time, with an emphasis on the latter (get it?). Read More »
