Happy Birthday, Rashard Lewis! We Reminisce On His Amazing Draft Night Story

Rashard Lewis

It’s a shame casual NBA fans will most remember the $112 million whenever the name Rashard Lewis comes up. A 6-10 sniper from deep who could also move, take you off the bounce and finish at the rim? They don’t come around too often. What we sometimes forget that the two-time All-Star scored over 18 points per game five times throughout his NBA career (and won a title with Miami this past year) after he dropped all the way into the second round during the 1998 NBA Draft.

Happy 50th Birthday, Chris Mullin! Watch Him Drop 38 Points On Michael Jordan

Chris Mullin

Chris Mullin has always walked on hallowed ground in the offices of Dime Magazine. As one of our favorite ballplayers of the last 25-30 years, we still feel he was super underrated. During his prime, he produced five straight seasons in Golden State where he averaged over 25 points per game. Despite playing until he was 37 years old, Mullin finished his career as a plus-18 a night scorer, and shot over 50 percent from the field, 38 percent from deep and almost 87 percent from the stripe.

ReggieLewis

Today is a moment for somber reflection about a man that graced a basketball court for too short a time.

He was 27-years-old, and had just completed his sixth season with the Boston Celtics while averaging 20.8 points a game for the second consecutive year. Rather than dwell on his untimely death, here are five of his greatest moments during a career cut short just as he was transitioning into a star. Read More »

The 15 Best Moments Of Boston’s Paul Pierce & Kevin Garnett Era

Paul Pierce

Paul Pierce, Dime #5

July 12, 2013 will go down as one of the sadder days in Celtic history. It now represents when Boston Celtic legends Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were shipped off to Brooklyn in an effort to rebuild the storied franchise. We all knew it had to happen eventually. While Danny Ainge absolutely did the right thing by acquiring assets for the aging future Hall of Famers (three first-round picks), it is still unfathomable to imagine KG and the Truth wearing anything else but green.

Michael Jordan’s 10 Best Games From His Shortened 1995 Season

Michael Jordan

History is written by the victors. Nowhere is that more apparent than in Michael Jordan‘s shortened 1995 campaign with Chicago. Returning from baseball in March to play the final 17 games of the regular season, Jordan was sometimes his famed dominating self, other times old, brittle and washed-up. He averaged only 26.9 points during the regular season, a number his baseball-strengthened arms and the eerie confines of the United Center took the fault for. Read More »
