LeBron James Finishes Off Bobcats After Banging Leg

Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Udonis Haslem

Going into Game 4 against the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night, the Heat needed one more victory to sweep the first round (before tonight they were the only higher-seeded team to lead their series). Charlotte was not going down without a fight, as they actually had the lead at halftime, 54-52. Yet, one moment was all that LeBron James needed to spark his team to surge ahead and never look back.

The NBA’s Top 10 Dunks Of The Week

Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis (Derick E. Hingle/USA TODAY Sports)

We finally got it, NBA fans. We finally received our obligatory Blake Griffin dunk of the year where he embarrasses and steals the dignity of an unfortunate defender who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and attempted to foolishly defend the athletic anomaly that is the 6-10 Griffin.

5 Teams That Will Resurrect The Eastern Conference Next Year

DeMar DeRozan

The NBA’s Eastern Conference is in need of immediate assistance because outside of the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers, there are 13 other teams that are on life support.

The Atlanta Hawks are the only other team in the East with a record above .500 and that’s not going to last much longer with Al Horford now out indefinitely. That leaves the likes of the Charlotte Bobcats, Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards to compete for the coveted third seed. Read More »

NBA’s Top 10 Plays From Last Night

Bismack Biyombo

Last night’s NBA action was so full of highlights that we had to just run a top 10. Paul George had a ridiculous facial. Bismack Biyombo did the same. And JaVale McGee had another one of those plays that defies the basic physics of basketball. Of course, in the end, they all bowed down to LeBron James going “DeAndre Jordan” in Boston. Only one question though for whoever made this list: where is Avery Bradley‘s insane chase-down block?) Read More »

Carlos Boozer Dunks All Over Bismack Biyombo & Drops Him To The Floor

Carlos Boozer

We mentioned this move in Smack, and as great as this finish was – one-handed, with the left, right over the top of Bismack BiyomboStacey King‘s call still beats it. King is always in rare form, and just minutes after this play, started lobbying that Chicago should have not one, not two, but three All-Stars (Luol Deng, Joakim Noah and… Carlos Boozer). The man loves him some Bulls. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: The Week’s Best Pickups (12.26)

Kawhi Leonard

FRESH PICKINGS: Kawhi Leonard (56 percent owned in Yahoo!, 68 percent in ESPN) After singing Kawhi Leonard’s praises a few weeks ago, he did me dirty by taking a little extra time to heal his bum knee. Now back in action, he put up 17 points, four rebounds, two assists, five steals and three treys in his first start back. In fantasy, Kawhi is a steals specialist, and while he isn’t going to wow you in any other category, he’s not going to hurt you anywhere either. Read More »

James Harden And Jeremy Lin Burn Down Atlanta; The Bobcats End An Epic Streak

James Harden

We don’t know anything concrete about the future of this season – our crystal ball broke a few weeks ago and the Ouija board was tossed long ago. We have our ideas – here’s who we think will take home MVP – but we don’t know, for example whether this Houston Rockets team will contend in the Western Conference. This team will, however, be fun to watch. It’s like this is an “Out to Prove Ourselves” multi-city, national stadium tour sweeping across America. Read More »

LeBron Wants To Be The Best Player Ever; James Harden Gets Traded To Houston

LeBron James

While the NFL has issues with concussions, the NHL can’t field a product, and all of like seven people care about baseball, we’re on the cusp of what figures to be one of the best NBA seasons in the past 20-30 years. Stars in big cities. Rivalries. Incredible young talent. Older cats still bringing it like Susan Sarandon. And we also have LeBron James, who’s not only the best player in the world, but wants to be… the greatest player ever to pick up a basketball. Read More »
