Particularly LeBron James and his Heat, who have now won 16 straight games but are still chasing the League’s best record. Read More »

It was an exciting first half to the NBA season. Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, and the reining MVP LeBron James all saw time on the top of the ladder.

Damian Lillard

In the final weeks before the All-Star break, the midseason mark is almost upon us. While every rookie under the sun has struggled at some point this season, Damian Lillard has remained invincible.

The Top 10 NBA MVP Candidates, Vol. 5

LeBron James

Last week, LeBron James reminded us all why he’s a three-time MVP winner and the most dominant player in the NBA. Becoming the youngest player to 20,000 points, while locking in 5,000 career assists (ironically in the same game) was an indication of what makes him so great. The key to LeBron’s success has been his unmatched versatility. Kevin Durant scored a career-high last week and is having arguably the best month of his career, but it still wasn’t enough to eclipse LeBron for the top spot on the ladder. Read More »

Why Stephen Curry Deserves To Be A 2013 NBA All-Star

Stephen Curry

The 2013 NBA All-Star Game starters really couldn’t have been much more predictable, meaning the remaining spots are tight out West. It’s simple math. While guys such as Russell Westbrook and James Harden are going to be sure-fire picks in a conference driven by big men, it’s going to be tough for the remaining guards. After you put Westbrook and Harden in the equation only five spots remain. Tim Duncan, Zach Randolph and David Lee will all likely make the cut, leaving just two spots left Read More »
