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 »
TAG: Brandon Knight
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 »
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 »
Basketball demands we break down its players not just by stats, but by the time and place they occur. That’s not the case in NBA fantasy hoops, though, where cold calculations rule the day and the matchup. Who are the Fantasy Doctor‘s choices for this week’s best pickups? Hit the jump to find out.

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 »
Go into any locker room in the NBA… actually, go into any locker room in the country and you’ll hear some Meek Mill. Some Jigga. Some Drake. Music and basketball. The NBA and hip-hop. It all goes together. Read More »
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.
Next up, a Milwaukee Bucks team without much of an identity and a whole lot of new faces. Read More »
Kentucky’s Alumni Game is always a matchup to watch during the summer and as the university continues to churn out talent, the rosters only get crazier. This year’s game featured the likes of John Wall, Brandon Knight, Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Patrick Patterson and others. While the game wasn’t much more than matador defense and non-stop dunking, Wall did put up 40 points in the Blue Team’s 111-95 win. Brandon Knight led the losers with 30. Read More »
There is a certain level of maturity exuded in the personality of Brandon Knight. It’s a maturity that a third-year player at age 21 doesn’t often have. He isn’t concerned with highlight plays in his favor or against him. He is about getting better and just playing the game hard.
While most NBA players don’t look to Milwaukee as their destination of choice, he is embracing the trade that sent him there as an opportunity to grow both individually and with the new young core on the Bucks. Read More »
