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 »

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 »

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 »

Stan Van Gundy Benches Josh Smith After “Jawing Session” About Defense

Stan Van Gundy

It wasn’t just Markieff Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who got into it last night during the Suns-Pistons game. It seems Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy and forward Josh Smith had a verbal altercation when J Smoove was subbed out with a few minutes left in the third quarter. He did not return in the 88-86 Suns win. Read More »

Justin Timberlake To Man Calling Him Bandwagon Grizzlies Fan: “I’m An Owner”

Justin Timberlake

River city native and Memphis Grizzlies part-owner Justin Timberlake is psyched about his team’s start to the 2014-2015 season. After the Grit ‘N Grind crew dispatched of the Houston Rockets last night to gain the league’s best record at 10-1, the “Mirrors” singer expressed droll excitement on Twitter. But his followers were immediately dubious, questioning the timing of Timberlake’s Grizzlies fandom. He wasn’t having it, and responded in pretty awesome fashion. Read More »
