There’s no sense in hiding it now – we love Kevin Garnett. Stuff like this is of many, many reasons why the future Hall-of-Famer will always be one of our all-time favorites. As the Brooklyn Nets made their way through the tunnels of Chesapeake Energy Arena to begin their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Garnett trailed his teammates and repeatedly slapped himself in the face – with both hands! – to prepare for tip-off.

Ask and you might receive; demand and you shall. Apparently that’s LeBron James’ line of thinking when it comes to Kevin Love wanting more touches on the block.

Report: Nets Likely To Trade Or Buyout Andrei Kirilenko

Andrei Kirilenko, Travis Wear

Remember when Andrei Kirilenko turned down what would have been more than $10 million in his final year in Minnesota to sign a two-year deal for what was a mini mid-level exception in Brooklyn? Yeah, the NBA even investigated — and cleared — claims of corruption because Kirilenko shares the same heritage as Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Now it seems like he’s close to gone from BK and the New York Post‘s Tim Bontemps claims the Nets will either trade AK-47 or just buy him out. Read More »

Monty Williams Says Anthony Davis “Could Easily Go For 40 and 20″

Monty Williams, Anthony Davis

At this point, tempering expectations for Anthony Davis is futile. Very few players in history have ever averaged 25.5 points, 11.4 rebounds, 3.9 blocks, and 2.3 steals per game while shooting 57.9 percent from the field, and none have done so as 21 year-olds. It’s too early to say whether or not Davis will sustain those mind-boggling statistics – not to mention a would-be record 36.1 PER – over the full season, but it doesn’t even really matter. The New Orleans Pelicans’ superstar is on his way to a legendary career, and has the basketball world re-thinking the limits of potential in the process. Read More »
