Gay was pulled from Toronto’s starting lineup tonight at the Staples Center where they were set to take on the Lakers in Kobe Bryant‘s return. Gay is joined by fellow Raptors Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray in the deal, with Greivis Vasquez, Patrick Patterson, John Salmons and Chuck Hayes headed to Toronto. Read More »

Toronto Raptors Players Team Up At Pop-A-Shot To Set High Score

Toronto Raptors

A coterie of some of the best Raptors players, DeMar DeRozan, Amir Johnson, Quincy Acy, Aaron Gray and Rudy Gay — plus D-Leaguer Chris Wright, who played for the Warriors in the 2011-12 season — gathered around a Pop-A-Shot machine earlier tonight. Their activity wasn’t too far removed from the way a lot of us react to an impossible-to-defeat high score. Read More »

Harrison Barnes Crushes A Nasty Slam On Aaron Gray’s Head

Harrison Barnes

We joked in Smack that Harrison Barnes should be given his own dunk contest during All-Star Weekend. He’s already had about three facials this season that had us spitting out our drinks, and while this one probably isn’t as nasty as his crowning on Nikola Pekovic, it’s still probably the best play from Monday night.

Rudy Gay Saves Memphis; A King Makes A Game-Winner In D.C.

Rudy Gay

The last time Rudy Gay posted up Evan Turner, the Sixers appointed nerd damn near ripped Gay’s arm out of his socket. That was back in 2011, and since then, Gay, Zach Randolph and the Grizz can’t go a week without someone pointing out that their marriage is doomed for failure. This time, the Gay-on-Turner post-up worked out a little better in Memphis’ three-point win in Philadelphia. Read More »

We came across this crazy photo of Big Baby Davis getting in Aaron gray’s face in last night’s Magic/Raptors game on Reddit’s NBA page and wanted to share. It’s still not as weird as this, but it’s plenty awkward. Read More »

Olympic NBA Stars Capture The Moment; David Stern Smacks Down Dwight Howard’s Agent

Olympics NBA

Wherever your turn tonight (or for the next two weeks) you’re going to get hit in the face with Olympic coverage. We challenge you to find a nicer photo than this. Serge Ibaka looks like he just stepped off the set of Shaft. Thank everything for athletes and their Instagramming and Twittering. That photo was courtesy Kevin Durant‘s account, but of course we’ve seen how Team USA rides from Kevin Love‘s account. Don’t forget Deron Williams, too, who basically gave a photo essay of all the cool Olympians out there tonight. Read More »

From Dime #68 – Aaron Gray On Being A “Carnivore” & Catching His Biggest Fish

Aaron Gray

*The interview printed below is from Dime #68. You can check it out in its entirety in the new issue, on newsstands now.*

We wouldn’t be mad if you couldn’t pick Aaron Gray out of a lineup. Even if you saw him in a mall, he might be just another huge dude. Yes, Gray is big, like Shaq big. He’s 7-0, 270 pounds and by the end of last season in New Orleans, he was finally getting a chance to use that muscle. After averaging 3.1 points and 4.1 rebounds during the regular season, Gray played a key role with the Hornets and their near upset of the Lakers in the first round of the playoffs. Now in Toronto, his career hasn’t seen a ton of on-court action, but one thing Gray is really experienced with is the outdoors. You might’ve heard, but the lockout shut off the NBA last summer. Luckily for Gray, he knew what to do with his free time. Read More »

Trevor Booker’s Monster Slam on Aaron Gray and the Raptors

Trevor Booker dunk highlights

Ahh, the pick and roll … the giver of the majority of NBA dunk highlights. Teams generally don’t defend it well, don’t rotate quickly, and the result is an offensive player rolling down the heart of the lane with nothing between him and the rim and the SportsCenter highlights in his head.

Example: Trevor Booker‘s cram last night on Aaron Gray and the Toronto Raptors: Read More »

NBA Fantasy Team Analysis: The New Orleans Hornets

Chris Paul

This team is all about a stud point guard and a bunch of spare parts. If its big free agent doesn’t re-sign with the team, the New Orleans Hornets could be one of the more unappealing NBA teams for fantasy owners. With nearly half of its roster on the market, the Hornets will be a team to monitor whenever the league resumes. Read More »
