GIF: Boogie’s Behind-The-Back Burn Of KG

Kevin Garnett, DeMarcus Cousins

The Kings fell down by 16 at the half against the Nets last night. DeMarcus Cousins was just 2-for-12 in the opening 24 minutes, but DMC and the Kings came back to make a game of it late, only to fall 103-100 to the visiting Nets. Cousins rebounded to go 8-of-12 in the second half and one of those eight field goals embarrassed former Defensive PLayer of the Year, Kevin Garnett. The slick handle on display by a 6-11, 240-pound human being should be outlawed as unfair to opponents. Read More »

Paul Pierce Before Facing Nets: “Any Team Without Paul Pierce Misses Him”

Paul Pierce

Paul Pierce has never lacked for confidence. The Washington Wizards forward is a frequent crunch-time playmaker and avid trash-talker, traits backed-up by a legendary career that will eventually make him a Hall-of-Famer. And though his role in 2014-2015 is an ancillary one, the 37 year-old still boasts the charming arrogance that’s spurred him to superstardom. Read More »

Report: OKC-Nets Talks Falter; Rockets Are Now Interested In Brook — Huh?

Brook Lopez, Dwight Howard

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Nets-Thunder talks have disintegrated because for Brooklyn, “there was nothing we liked.” But Woj also said that Houston had inquired about Brook Lopez‘s services, which is weird because they already have a center; his name is Dwight Howard — in case you’ve forgotten about him during his disappointing opening half to the 2014-15 season.

Welp, it seems the Nets weren’t interested in Brooklyn’s Born Ready. After reports surfaced last night of a proposed three-team swap sending Brook Lopez to Oklahoma City, Jarrett Jack and Jeremy Lamb to Charlotte and Lance Stephenson to Brooklyn, it fell apart today because of Brooklyn’s unwillingness to take on Stephenson. But the Thunder are determined to get Brook and his fragile foot, and they could still receive the Nets center in exchange for Kendrick Perkins. You read that right. Read More »
