People are the worst.
This is an irrefutable fact that is on display every single day. Here is Wednesday’s example: CBS Chicago wants Bulls fans to submit “open letters” to Derrick Rose in the hopes of pressuring him into coming back to play before he’s ready. Then they’re going post the best ones on their site, presumably for Derrick to read. Read More »
Clearly, I recognize that there is a huge difference between the physicality and rigors of an NBA game and, say, Flamenco dancing … but still, as a Sixers fan this is tough to swallow.
Just a few weeks after the close of an Andrew Bynum/Sixers season that never was due to (among other things) Bynum’s jello knees, here he is in Spain this week dancing the night away. The Ferrari jacket is just an added bonus. Thanks for this. Read More »
I don’t really care if Chandler Parsons did this intentionally or not, it’s funny as hell. A Rockets fan was so excited last night when his team held on to beat the Thunder, he couldn’t wait to fist bump his guy Parsons.
Nope. Not happening: Read More »
A few weeks ago the NBA debuted a TV spot heading into the the Playoffs based on LeBron James and his legendary Game 7 performance against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals last year. [WATCH IT HERE]
This morning, just hours after his 29-point blitzing of the Rockets, they dropped a new one starring Russell Westbrook. Read More »
Just a few days after abruptly waiving Stephen Jackson, the San Antonio Spurs are reportedly making a move to bolster their perimeter offense by signing Tracy McGrady. Read More »
Over the next several days every writer in America will wax poetic about the career and personality of Kobe Bryant, and will every one of them will ask, “Is this the end?”
The only words that really matter though are the ones that come from the man himself. In the middle of the night, Kobe went online to do a little “Facebook Venting.”
This is what he wrote: Read More »
Back in our previous lives at HoopsTV.com, I was borderline obsessed with finding what I considered to be the Holy Grail of basketball footage: video of an 18-year old then-unknown-to-American basketball named Dirk Nowitzki lighting up an NBA all-star team on an exhibition tour in Europe back in 1997. And not just any NBA all-star team; this one featured Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Charles Barkley, among others. Read More »
Amidst all of the well-earned hoopla surrounding the college game, we got some really interesting news from our friends at the NBA last night: Carmelo Anthony has unseated LeBron James for the highest-selling NBA jersey. Read More »
Maybe it was the seemingly endless commercial breaks leading up to it at the end of last night’s CBS telecast, or maybe anything would seem like a letdown after that spectacular Nation Championship game, but didn’t “One Shining Moment” seem to not have the pop that it usually does?
Maybe I’m just irrationally bitter because this was inexplicably left out of the montage. It’s still tradition, and it’s still always good no matter what, so here’s “One Shining Moment” for the 2013 NCAA Tournament: Read More »
Serious question for the Dime community: If he declared, am I crazy to think that Michigan freshman Mitch McGary could potentially be the No. 1 pick in this summer’s NBA Draft?
I am trying, reeeally trying, to avoid buying into the hype surrounding Mitch’s meteoric rise over the past few weeks and to look at him objectively. The media, reliably starving for new stories and always willing to beat story angles to death, would have you believe that Mitch is the second coming of Bill Walton. Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t, but if I am an NBA GM with No. 1 pick in the draft, I am taking a long look at Mitch McGary with that selection.
Before I get into McGary’s potential, let’s talk about the one thing that what we know about the rest of the draft field: It stinks. Read More »
