Caron Butler Takes Viewers Back To The Drug-Dealing Days Of His Youth

Caron Butler

Many of the finest players in the NBA grew up in some of the most improverished neighbhorhoods in America. The “streets” really were a “short stop” but they had a “wicked jump shot,” as BIGGIE intoned on “Things Done Changed.” While the money that comes with basketball brilliance got most of them and their families out of the dangerous areas where they grew up, Caron Butler almost didn’t make it.

The NBA Playoffs are still a good two months away, but that doesn’t mean teams haven’t begun preparing and planning their rosters for the home stretch. Why? March 1 marks the last day a player can be waived and still sign with a new team and be eligible to play in the playoffs (players who have yet to play in the NBA this season have until the final day of the regular season to sign with a playoff team).

The 15 Most Lopsided Trades In NBA History

Joe Johnson

The trade deadline truly brings out the worst in desperate franchises looking to make a hasty deal. The main facilitator behind huge deals made at the deadline is the fact that the main player the deal is surrounding may leave during free agency, leaving the team he plays for with nothing other than an open roster spot. Rather than risk that, teams will instead pull the trigger and trade their star player for what usually turns out to be a couple of draft picks, aging veterans or unproven players. Read More »

The 25 Greatest Washington Wizards Players In Franchise History

Gilbert Arenas

It’s been a long time coming. Well, 35 years to be exact. That’s how long this drought has lasted. To put it into perspective, the nation’s capital has not had a NBA championship since Jimmy Carter was the POTUS.

Despite the recent history, the Wizards/Bullets organization has not lacked in the talent department, whatsoever. A total of 11 players who have donned the Bullets/Wizards jersey have entered the Hall of Fame… names like Unseld, Hayes, Monroe, Malone and King. On top of this, a slew of past All-Stars as well like Jeff Malone, Michael Adams, Juwan Howard, Chris Webber and Gilbert Arenas. Read More »

The 25 Greatest Miami Heat Players In Franchise History

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh

Four years ago, compiling a list of the 25 best players in Miami Heat history meant adding on a few that probably would not have been known of outside of Miami. How times have changed. In four years, the Heat have tacked on All-Star after All-Star, Hall of Famer after Hall of Famer and have made their all-time roster one of the best in the history of the game. Outside of Los Angeles and Boston, they have compiled names that could possibly rival that of any franchise that has existed since the earliest days of the NBA. Read More »
