Dime Q&A: Brandon Knight On Charity, The Bucks, & Expectations For 2014-2015

Brandon Knight

Being a basketball player in the NBA carries far greater responsibility than just playing for one of the 30 franchises in the league on a daily basis. There is that unwritten rule that players are supposed to give back. That mantra is one that some players may exercise through their team’s many community events and call it a day. But the vast majority of players do something more and take that responsibility a step further by forming their own charities or making appearances that allows them to do things outside of the team they play for.

On a sweltering August afternoon in South Florida, Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Knight gave back to the community that helped him achieve so much of his success with a back to school drive at Margate’s Firefighter’s Park. Read More »

Brandon Knight, Mo Williams

The Milwaukee Bucks posted a video yesterday of Brandon Knight doing a 60 inch box jump. It was very impressive, and calls to mind a certain dunk that might have crushed the confidence of another player. Read More »

After a big block on Birdman, and a game-winner against the Knicks, Brandon Knight continues his slow recovery from last season’s cataclysmic stuff by DeAndre Jordan. Saturday night, he did his own rendition. Even though the Bucks lost gameNo. 63, 102-98, on one sequence Knight showed off his hops. Read More »

The Heat came into Milwaukee’s dilapidated BMO Harris Bradley Center on Saturday night, and stomped a Bucks team that’s been getting stomped all season. But despite the 88-67 shellacking at the hands of the 2-time defending champs, Milwaukee’s Brandon Knight rose for a block on Chris Andersen that has to alleviate some of the stink from last season’s stank face DeAndre Jordan slam.

Video: Brandon Knight Hits Game-Winner Over Knicks

J.R. Smith, Brandon Knight

Two of the worst teams in the worst conference squared off at BMO Bradley Center in Milwaukee last night. The Bucks, with the worst record in the league, beat the visiting Knicks after a three-pointer by Brandon Knight broke a 95-95 tie with just 2.4 seconds left game. The big shot came the possession after Carmelo Anthony knocked down a game-tying three-pointer of his own. Not only that, but the Knicks lost to the worst team in the league with J.R. Smith playing his best (shooting) game of the year. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (12.27)

Tobias Harris

BUY LOW TOBIAS HARRIS, Orlando Magic Harris was a favorite of mine heading into draft day, but complications from a sprained ankle made most forget about the major fantasy impact he had at the end of last season. Now, he’s been upgraded from a recommended pickup of mine to the perfect buy low candidate. Since returning on December 13, Harris is putting up just 12.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 0.4 treys. His numbers have nowhere to go but up, and although he’s been better over his last three, averaging 16.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 0.7 threes, it’s still worth sending out an offer for him.

You know you have handles when the NBA releases a “best of 2013″ video and you’re on the top 10 three times. But that’s the life for Kyrie Irving, a cat so smooth and nice with the rock that he can make dudes fall during All-Star Weekend… when no one is playing defense. Cleveland’s star isn’t the only one dropping people on this list. Everyone from Nate Robinson to Lance Stephenson (this past weekend) is bringing the goods. Read More »

Sink Or Swim? Breaking Down The NBA Playoff Chances For 10 Potential Tanking Teams

Michael Carter-Williams

In basketball, one thing is guaranteed: someone will win and someone will lose. This season, it appears the entire Eastern Conference (save Indiana and Miami) are playing Twisted Metal and driving tanks, trying to see which team can blow up the quickest. That wasn’t anymore evident than when Toronto shipped away Rudy Gay and received a McDonald’s value meal in return. Read More »

John Wall’s Chase-Down Block On Nate Wolters To End The Quarter

John Wall

Maybe we jinxed them? Only a few hours after we went through the laughable Eastern Conference and declared Washington the No. 3 team in the East, the Wizards lost to the lowly visiting Bucks, 109-105. Still, a chase-down block by John Wall to end the third quarter was an incredible display of athleticism. Read More »
