Anthony Davis’ Off-The-Wall Windmill & Dunk Contest Demand

Anthony Davis

Second year Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is going to be playing in his first All-Star game this Sunday. He can thank Kobe Bryant‘s left tibial plateaufor that. Davis will also be appearing in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night for Chris Webber‘s team. But judging from teammate Anthony Morrow‘s Instagram upload, the Brow wants a dunk contest invite, too. Read More »

The 20 Best 3-Point Shooters In The NBA Right Now

Stephen Curry

While Dime has done stories on both the best shooters in the NBA and the players with the deepest range, we’ve never focused solely on the three-pointer. The adoption of the three-point line in 1979 dramatically changed the future of the NBA. Would Adam Morrison have even been considered a top 10 pick had this special skill not served a purpose? (Who honestly knows with MJ?) Read More »

From Dime 72: Anthony Morrow Has Some Of The NBA’s Best Tattoos

Anthony Morrow

This feature was originally published in Dime 72. Check your local newsstands now to see the piece in its entirety…

The Nets started a new age in Brooklyn this season, and they’re doing it without Anthony Morrow, the 6-5 sharpshooter who spent the last two seasons with New Jersey. He was traded to Atlanta this summer, and then to Dallas during this year’s trade deadline. Read More »

The Omer Asik Sweepstakes Take Over; CP3 Gets An Offer He Can Refuse

Omer Asik Blocks Dwyane Wade At The Rim, Comes Back Bloodied

Most of the buzz since free agency hit at midnight was about, surprisingly, Omer Asik. He was courted by the Trail Blazers but ultimately has signed an offer sheet with Houston, one the Bulls now can match. The deal is for three years and $25 million, with about $12 million of that likely to come in the third year. Before you scoff, he can rebound like few others — only six guys in the league had a 25 percent defensive rebounding rate and 12 percent on offense, SI’s Zach Lowe tweeted out. Read More »

Carmelo Anthony Serves Up A Stunner; San Antonio Keeps A Rollin’

Carmelo Anthony

Mike Breen called it. A Knicks announcer when he’s not doing national TV, Breen called Carmelo Anthony‘s 43-point performance Sunday against Chicago his finest moment as a Knick. How could it not be? He hasn’t had the most consistent tenure as a Knick, putting it nicely, which is par for the Knicks’ fate during his time since the Nuggets’ trade. Two months after his return during Jeremy Lin‘s breakout had everyone thinking Anthony was key to the Knicks’ woes, he was king of New York for the day. Read More »

Daily Fantasy Basketball Diagnosis: 4.2 (Weekend Recap)

Gerald Wallace

Weekend Wonder: Gerald Wallace averaged 21.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 4.0 steals, 1.0 block and 2.0 threes in two games over the weekend. In this stretch, he shot 54 percent from the floor and 89 percent from the free-throw line, while averaging 2.5 turnovers per game. It’s only been nine games, but Wallace has averaged better all-around numbers (top 20 value) for the Nets than those he was putting up in Portland earlier this season. Read More »

In The Place To Be: Live From NBA All-Star Saturday Night

Derrick Williams

Took me long enough. Some media members have been complaining all weekend about how this All-Star Weekend seemed like one of those high school Friday night bashes when the rents don’t tell you they’re bouncing until 9:30 that night, and you call up a few friends, they call a few friends, you hit up your beer connect, charge up the iPod and yet everything feels rushed and crowded. That’s what a lockout will do to you. Read More »

Deron Williams Shuts Up New York; Ryan Anderson Serves Up A Robert Horry Special

Deron Williams

Amar’e said afterwards he had “no doubt” Deron Williams came out with something to prove in MSG against Jeremy Lin. On second glance, we should’ve seen it coming. Williams basically flipped on a group of reporters earlier during Linsanity because no one wanted to talk about anything other than the new Knick sensation. He dropped 38 points with eight triples in New Jersey’s shockingly easy 100-92 win. Carmelo Anthony returned (as did Baron Davis) and yet the only one who mattered was Williams. Read More »

Paul Pierce Shoots Down New York; Paul George Blows Up

Paul Pierce

With the shot clock dwindling, Paul Pierce lost the ball, backed up behind the three-point line, fought off Landry Fields for the rock and heaved in a deep jumper as the clock leaked zeroes. So what if it didn’t count? It was crazy enough to warrant the MJ shrug from Pierce. It was also a signal: Down the stretch, the Celtics would make the plays. The Knicks wouldn’t. Boston came from behind to win again, 91-89, behind 30 from the Truth and a couple of monster shots from Jesus (14 points). Read More »

Daily Fantasy Basketball Diagnosis: 2.1

Paul George

Beast of the Night: Paul George finished with 24 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals, a block and four threes last night against the Nets. He shot 73 percent (8-11) from the field, 100 percent (4-4) from the free-throw line and had one turnover. George has had clunkers every now and then this season but has still managed to average top 60 numbers. He’s an all-around producer who doesn’t drag any category down for his owners, making him a sleeper-turned-stud. Read More »
