Cleveland’s decision to sign center Andrew Bynum ended when the Cavs suspended the 26-year-old for conduct detrimental to the team before trading him to the Bulls for Luol Deng and picks. The Bulls didn’t pick up the second half of his incentive-laden contract, and after a few weeks in limbo, the Pacers snagged him as a free agent. A recent report from Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reveals a certain anecdote that explains his post-haste departure from Cleveland. Read More »

Former NBA player-turned assistant coach, Darvin Ham, spoke with the Indianapolis Star‘s Candace Bucker about the newest Pacer, Andrew Bynum. After training with Bynum during his lone All-Star season in 2011-12 with the Lakers, Ham disagreed with the popular consensus and said that Bynum is “not a disruptive guy.” But that’s not even close to the best thing Ham mentioned.

PLEASE don’t SHOOT! Welcome to the more shots than points club.
Nobody wants to have their team referred to as “Brick City”. So who are the chucker’s in today’s NBA? Who are the players who go out and consistently hurt their team with bad shots?
Let’s try and add some context to the term chucker. What quantifies a player as a chucker? Many NBA players have bad nights or shoot poor percentages from time to time.
