Rajon Rondo, Monta Ellis

After rumors ramped up last night the Celtics were in “serious” discussions to deal Rajon Rondo, today reports said he was “open” to re-signing with either the Mavs or Rockets, since he’s an unrestricted free agent next summer. Then, some speculated a deal was going to happen because the Mavericks Twitter account started following him. At the time, we thought it was hooey, but sources tell Yahoo a deal has been struck sending Rondo to Dallas — along with Dwight Powell — in exchange for Jae Crowder, Brandan Wright, Jameer Nelson a 2015 first-round draft pick and a future second round draft pick.

Video: Arron Afflalo’s Game-Tying 3-Pointer At The Buzzer Wasted In OT Loss

James Harden, Arron Afflalo, Dwight Howard

It’s not often a team is tasked with taking the ball out from under their own basket with only 3.7 seconds in regulation, down by three. Usually they’d advance the ball. Also, this gives the winning team time to foul and avoid a game-tying 3-pointer. Except, Patrick Beverley failed to foul Ty Lawson in time as he sprinted across half-court and found Arron Afflalo for the game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer last night in Denver. Read More »

Video: Brandon Jennings Ignores Open Layup To Miss Mid-Range Jumper

Brandon Jennings

This is the Pistons in a nutshell. During Detroit’s 117-106 loss to the high-octane offense of the Mavericks, Brandon Jennings made an excellent back-cut to the rim and was awarded with a wide-open layup. As you’ll see, the Pistons point passed up on the open look at the rim to then shoot a mid-range jumper; it rattled out. Read More »

Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant

After Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, Kevin Durant sent him a congratulatory text. The 2014 NBA MVP recently spoke with USA Today‘s Sam Amick and extolled the Lakers great for his work ethic and commitment to the game. When asked if the ideas in Henry Abbott’s infamous ESPN feature — that reported players didn’t want to play in LA because of Kobe — were true, Durant couldn’t hold back about the “BS.” Read More »

GIF: Russell Westbrook Destroys Rim On Tomahawk Jam, Then…Raises The Roof?

Russell Westbrook

If we had to make a list of the most entertaining NBA players to watch right now, Russell Westbrook would be at, or near, the top. The Thunder point guard is also playing out of his mind since returning from a hand injury that kept him out of 15 games earlier this season. Against Sacramento last night, Russ continued to abuse OKC opponents, and even brought back a celebration that was at its peak way back in the 1990s. Read More »

Video: Marc Gasol & The Grizzlies End Warriors’ 16-Game Winning Streak

Klay Thompson, Marc Gasol, Marreese Speights

The Warriors and Grizzlies, who own the top two records in the NBA through the NBA’s first quarter of the season, squared off in Memphis last night, and the Grizzlies ended the Warriors franchise-best 16-game winning streak, defeating them 105-98. Despite the win, the Warriors were right in the mix late in the game, and with a hopeful return of Andrew Bogut from a lingering knee issue, they’ll do a lot better at stopping Marc Gasol, who led the way for Memphis with 24 points and seven rebounds in the home win.
