With the start of the 2013-14 NBA season rapidly approaching, we thought it only fair to share what makes each team so exciting. Ontologically speaking, all 30 teams deserve our eyeballs this season. Even disastrous lineups still present oodles of plays, personalities, highlights and headaches. Here are five things to keep in mind for each team before flipping the channel.
TAG: Austin Rivers
Aquille Carr. Marcus Lovett, Jr. Jamal Crawford. Austin Rivers. They’re all here on Ballislife’s Ankle Breakers Vol. 2, over four minutes of straight ruthlessness. These highlights are a product of multiple years of filming, as you’ll find footage from just about every level of basketball. It all ends with a move that was so sick it actually did “hurt” somebody. Read More »

Austin Rivers of the new-look Pelicans had a thoroughly disappointing season last year as a rookie. But so far this summer, he’s been nothing but impressive, putting in work during NBA Summer League and continuing to kill the competition at the Orlando Pro-Am. New Orleans has a crowded backcourt now with Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday in the mix, yet Rivers is hoping to provide some explosive bench scoring for the squad this season. Read More »

The NBA Las Vegas Summer League ended its 11-day run by crowning the Golden State Warriors as it’s first ever champion in a 91-77 win over the Phoenix Suns. While the Warriors took home the title, there were plenty of other champion-like performances turned in by players in Las Vegas. Read More »

Watch the combo guard go off for 30 points in a recent Orlando Pro-Am game. Read More »
