Despite setting an NBA Combine record with a 46.5-inch vertical earlier this summer, D.J. Stephens went undrafted.

Bust. It’s a word we throw around a lot, but haven’t been able to distinctly define. Our typical classification is a seemingly promising prospect that was either (a) placed in the wrong situation, (b) plagued by injury or (c) just immensely overhyped. They are often looked at as the most disappointing bunch, but I don’t see it that way.

What about the guys who had all the tools, but just couldn’t keep their lives together long enough to fulfill all of their potential? Read More »

“Legend” is an overused word, but that’s exactly what Dr. J was before he arrived in the NBA. In a time before social media and viral videos, a time when ABA games weren’t televised and even NBA games were shown in tape delay, the Dr. J that we know and love today existed only in myths and fairytales.

We Reminisce: The NBA’s Forgotten Star – Drazen Petrovic

Drazen Petrovic

Twenty years ago today, up-and-coming NBA star Drazen Petrovic was killed in a traffic accident just months before his 29th birthday. The 6-5 guard was coming off two straight seasons with the Nets that saw him average over 20 points per game. In his final season, he made the All-NBA Third Team while throwing up some Steve Nash-like shooting percentages (nearly 52 percent shooting, just under 45 percent from deep, and 87 percent from the line).

He’s supposed to make the game-winner right, especially after the regular season MVP choked at the free throw line and blew two straight freebies? Well, eventually you grow up and realize it doesn’t always happen like that. We were all just spoiled. Read More »

Dwyane Wade
