Kawhi Leonard, Joe Johnson

Eric Bledsoe Says He Was Tipped Before Game About Nerlens Noel’s Hard Foul

Eric Bledsoe, Nerlens Noel

Last night Nerlens Noel dropped Eric Bledsoe to the hardwood not more than 30 seconds into the Suns-76ers game in Philadelphia. This came after Bledsoe had said his alum, Kentucky, could beat the 0-12 Sixers in a seven-game series. It was an embarrassing proclamation, even if some believe there’s some truth to his belief. Well, it seems Bledsoe knew the hard foul was coming since a 76ers player tipped him off about it before the game began. Read More »

There are a lot of reasons fans write off JaVale McGee as wasted potential. The seven foot Nuggets center has become synonymous with on-court goofiness, so much so that Shaqtin’ a Fool could be renamed “Pullin’ A JaVale.” That being written, he’s also endearingly sweet, which he showed off during Denver’s big, 117-97, win over the Pelicans on Friday night.

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 »

The Kings keep rolling and we couldn’t be happier for the people of Sacramento, who have waited more than a decade for a semi-return to prominence. They were even slated in to a national TV slot last night when they defeated the Bulls, 103-88, behind 22 points, 14 rebounds, four assists and one steal and block for DeMarcus Cousins. One of his dimes shows off all the things he’s improved since coming into the league in 2010. Read More »

Rookie K.J. McDaniels’ Mom On Sixers: “Yes They Are Tanking F**king Over My Son”

K.J. McDaniels

The Philadelphia 76ers are 0-11 to start the season and it’s getting so bad some people think a dominant college program could beat them in a seven-game series (they can’t). Second round pick (No. 32 overall) K.J. McDaniels has been along for Philly’s awful opening ride in his first experience as an NBA player. But things might be getting a whole lot worse for the rook after his mom took to Twitter last night without a filter to lament her son’s lost season. Read More »
