Rajon Rondo is officially a Dallas Maverick. But like many of his teammates from the Big Three era, it’s clear part of his heart will always remain in Bean Town. The 2008 NBA champion took to twitter last night and bid farewell to the Celtics, their fans, and the city of Boston. Read More »

Steve Kerr Quips About Durant: “We Did A good Job On Him In The Second Half”

Steve Kerr

By now everyone knows that Kevin Durant went off last night to the tune of 30 points in 18 minutes, which hasn’t been done since the American Basketball Association was being folded into the NBA. But an ankle injury right before the half saved the Warriors the uneviable task of stopping him in the next half, which coach Steve Kerr joked about after the game when it became clear KD was all right.

Phil Jackson To Commentating Barkley: “Do I Have To Mute This Game?”

Phil Jackson, Charles Barkley

On Thursday night, Charles Barkley was working the Bulls-Knicks game not from TNT studios with the rest of the “Inside the NBA” crew, but court-side in Chicago where he was acting as a color commentator. Knicks president Phil Jackson was also watching the telecast on TNT and eventually threatened to mute Chuck in a tweet because of Barkley’s comments about the much-maligned triple-post offense.

Mavericks Follow Rajon Rondo On Twitter; Rockets Prefer Goran Dragic

Rajon Rondo

If the Dallas Mavericks really are the most ardent pursuers of Rajon Rondo, they’re not doing a good job of playing coy. Hours after a report emerged that the Boston Celtics point guard would be “open” to re-signing with Mark Cuban’s team, the Mavs followed Rondo on Twitter. Read More »

Damian Lillard Left Off Top Point Guard Lists; Tweets “It’s Always Been This Way”

Damian Lillard, Isiah Thomas, Greg Anthony

Damian Lillard received only one collegiate scholarship offer. He played four years at Weber State. And he was cut from USA Basketball’s FIBA World Cup squad in August. The Portland Trail Blazers point guard knows what it’s like to be underappreciated, and has used that feeling as fuel for a still burgeoning All-Star career. And he was just afforded even more of it.

CBS Analyst Castigates Kobe For Donning “I Can’t Breathe” T-Shirt

Nick Young, Kobe Bryant, Wesley Johnson

This pisses us off a lot. After Kobe Bryant and his Lakers teammates joined first Derrick Rose, then LeBron James and a host of others by rocking a “I can’t breathe” t-shirt before last night’s game against Sacramento, CBS broadcasting analyst, Doug Gottlieb, sent a tweet reading: “Kobe lives in Newport Coast, takes a chopper to games, made $60 last 2 years…the struggles is real #ICANTBREATH.” Besides misspelling “breathe,” Gottlieb displayed his inability to understand the meaning behind the statement many other wealthy African-American NBA players, and millions of others have made over the last week in support of dead New Yorker, Eric Garner.

Bible Passage Greets Nosediving New York Knicks

Derek Fisher

“Then it came about after all your wickedness ‘Woe, woe to you!’ declares the Lord GOD” in Ezekial 16:23. He’s probably talking about the Knicks and all of us heathens in New York City. The Knicks, 4-18 and losers of their last eight, are in 14th place in the LEastern Conference, and that’s only because the Pistons and Sixers share the same conference. After Sunday’s 103-99 loss to the Blazers — yet another close one — the Knicks turned towards an optimistic bible passage on their whiteboard to keep battling through the historic amount of losing they’ve experienced to start the season.

Video: Nets Fan, Missing His Prosthetic Leg, Carried Out Of MSG By Security

Jeffrey Gamblero

We were at the Knicks-Nets game last night and word quickly spread among some of the media that a Nets fan, with a prosthetic leg, had been kicked out of the arena. Video surfaced on Instagram, and the Knicks have released a statement because any time you have three security officers dragging a recumbent man missing his prosthetic leg out of a sporting event — as onlookers boo, no less — it’s a PR fiasco.

Bogut Is Right, Steph Curry Is “Just Silly” & Looked Like An “MVP” Last Night

Stephen Curry

Steve Kerr thinks it’s too early for MVP talk, but if the season ended today, you’d be hard pressed to find a better MVP candidate than Stephen Curry. He dropped 40 on the Heat last night as the Warriors moved to 11-2, their best start in franchise history. Read More »
