The Suns, after gaining the lead in the fourth quarter last night, eventually fell to the Grizzlies, 97-91, for the fourth time this season, eliminating them from playoff contention and bringing to a close one of the more remarkable runs in NBA history. Before the season, everyone (and we do mean everyone) thought Phoenix was headed for one of the worst records in the league as they competed for the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes. Instead, they’re everybody’s favorite League Pass team, and who should have made the playoffs in a more perfect world. Read More »

You’d think that Kyrie Irving would have been riding high after dropping a career-high 44 points against the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night in overtime, but the Cavs lost, appropriately enough, and it was just the latest setback for the point guard that was the darling of the NBA during last season’s all-star weekend. Now he’s getting into beef with Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon and sending emotive twitter musings about all the “rumors and accusations” surrounding his future in Cleveland. Read More »

It was a pretty joyous moment for Cavs fans after Dion Waiters hit a buzzer-beating game-winner last night in Detroit. It was their first buzzer-beater since 2010, and moved them to within 3.5 games of Atlanta for a playoff spot. So of course ESPN Stats and Info sent a tweet out about the “first career buzzer-beater of LeBron James’ former team.” Read More »

Michael Jordan (Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports)

We told you Michael Jordan — the man that made Nike the global powerhouse they are today, as well as spawning the profitable Jordan Brand — apologized to Sixers guard Tony Wroten after the sole of Wroten’s Nike fell off during a game against Indy last week. But it seems the original report got it wrong, and Wroten was joking when he said the GOAT had issued an apology. Looking back, we should all question any and all Michael Jordan apologies a lot more stridently. Read More »
