15 Colleges That Produce The Best NBA Players

Vince Carter

With All-Stars like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard running the league from an attention standpoint, it’s hard to argue that high schoolers can’t make the successful jump to the NBA. Even international players like Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have had Hall of Fame careers after coming to the states. Read More »

Why The Cleveland Cavaliers May Be Headed Back To The Lottery

(photo. Instagram/clecavs)

Cavs General manager Chris Grant is not in danger of losing his job, writes the Cleveland Plain Dealer‘s Mary Schmitt Boyer in this weekend’s mailbag. He’s drafted well, and the Baron Davis trade that landed the Cavs presumptive franchise player Kyrie Irving was a smart move when combined with lottery luck. But the optimism heading into next season should be tempered by the countless injuries the Cavs have suffered in the wake of LeBron’s (original) Decision. Read More »

The NBA’s 30 Best Dunkers

Blake Griffin & DeAndre Jordan

Nothing gets us going in the Dime offices like a good ol’ fashioned debate, and the best debates are the ones that get heated. Trying to rate the best dunkers in the league is unanimously impossible. Do you want style? Force? Does a big man get points taken away? If a player is an epic dunker in warmups, does that count?

Back in the day, we had Vince Carter and there was no denying what type of dunker he was. But in the current NBA, outside of perhaps one or two guys, you could make a case for anyone. Read More »

Kyrie Irving Can’t Beat Denver By Himself; A Philly Surprise Erupts

Andre Iguodala

Once we saw the schedule had Denver and Cleveland last night, we set our watches. Ty Lawson. Kyrie Irving. Could it get any better? The matchup never materialized, however, and Lawson is probably thankful for that. He scored just 11 while Irving dropped 26 points and seven assists. But part of that stems from Denver being one of the deepest teams in the league, and Irving being asked to do everything outside of fill his team’s water bottles. Read More »

The Spurs Pay Up Big For Sending Players Home; Russell Westbrook Has A Game Like No One Else

Gregg Popovich

David Stern dropped a $250,000 fine on San Antonio on Friday afternoon, then said he doesn’t want to talk about it any more. Good luck with that – the topic of what a coach can and can’t do with his team will be white-hot because of mistakes both the league and the Spurs made with Starter-Gate. It’s wrong to meddle with a coach’s team but Gregg Popovich had ways to achieve the same result (resting his four best players) without sending them home on Southwest Airlines without telling the NBA, too.

5 Early Season NBA Statistical Anomalies That Won’t Last

J.R. Smith

The NBA season is just warming up, and like everything from Kobe‘s shooting percentages to Marcin Gortat leading the league in blocks, there are bound to be some statistical anomalies occuring out of sheer luck. Yes, sometimes, you can spot trends or improvements in a player’s game before they really happen (or at least get noticed on a larger scale). But five, six or seven games is a VERY small sample, and there are plenty of statistical numbers that are all out of whack through the season’s first two weeks. Read More »

James Harden Fails A Big Test; LeBron Earns One Of The Weirdest Technicals Ever

James Harden

Even if James Harden wasn’t, we all had waited a long time for last night. Both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook didn’t suit up, which meant the Beard would finally get a long-awaited chance to be the no. 1 option versus a top defense like the Bulls. Harden never really wanted this, dating all the way back to the draft when he reportedly actually wanted to be picked by OKC because he could fit in rather than dealing with the pressure of being “the man.” But anyone on the cusp of getting a max contract should be willing to test themselves. It’s safe to say Harden failed this one. Read More »
