Iman Shumpert Pokes Fun At His Disastrous Crossover

Iman Shumpert

It’s always nice to see the self-deprecating side of professional athletes. These people didn’t get where they are without supreme and unwavering confidence, an attribute that clashes the very nature of most human beings. When they let that mindset briefly slip away, our athletic idols become far more relatable. Read More »

Is This Year’s Three-Point Shootout Field The Best In League History?

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson

Kyle Korver is enjoying one of the most impressive shooting seasons in NBA history. Klay Thompson just set an all-time record by scoring 37 points in a single quarter. Steph Curry is the league’s leading MVP candidate and broadly considered basketball’s preeminent marksmen. And all three players will reportedly take part in All-Star Weekend’s Three-Point Shootout. Amazingly, though, no member of that exalted trio leads the NBA in treys; Wesley Matthews, another contest competitor, owns that distinction. All of which begs a question: Is this the most impressive three-point contest field ever assembled? Read More »

Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, Al Horford

We already know who is starting the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, and noon today was the deadline for the coach’s picks sliding in seven more players per conference with two more guards, three more frontcourt players and two wildcards. With the East’s best team, the Hawks, whiffing on a starting nod (Jeff Teague finished eighth in the backcourt fan voting, and Paul Millsap was 10th in the East’s frontcourt), some are predicting four Hawks fill out the seven reserve spots in the East. We really hope this happens and they all get to share the court for a stretch, but we doubt it’ll happen. Read More »
