The tomfoolery in Boston tonight was apparent from the moment Sarah Kustok started to interview Joe Johnson. During Johnson and Kustok’s sideline powwow with Johnson in the middle of the Celtics-Nets preseason game, Nets teammate Andray Blatche thought he’d have a little fun. Read More »
The 2013-14 NBA season is less than a week away, and that means Sports Illustrated is writing their NBA season preview. Who made the cover in an offseason with so many big moves? Well SI was smart and decided to release four separate covers featuring Dwight Howard (flanked by Hakeem Olajuwon and Kevin McHale), Stephen Curry, Derrick Rose, and the new look Brooklyn Nets.
