Charlie Villanueva Talks Marriage Proposal, UCONN Title & More In Google Chat

Charlie Villanueva

Last Friday, we were invited to SportsBlog.com’s Hanging with the Pro’s which featured current Dallas Maverick and former member of the 2004 UConn Huskie National Championship team, Charlie Villanueva. There was no guided direction for the conversation as many topics were reached, such as the state of the NCAA and Big East, Villanueva’s UConn days, his marriage proposal and his opinion on Adam Silver. It was an inside and uncut look at how an NBA player views a variety of topics, without a swarm of media surrounding him. Read More »

Fan Decides Just One Charlie Villanueva Tattoo Isn’t Enough

Charlie Villanueva

We’ve got some tattoos. While we’re not the sort that would get an epic back tattoo of Michael Jordan, Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen, we can partially understand why someone would want to permanently etch that on their body. Those were iconic players on a team that won more games in one season than any other team in NBA history. We’re not so sure about Pistons reserve Charlie Villanueva, though. What’s more, one fan wasn’t content with just a single tattoo of the former UCONN star; he had to get a second. Read More »

10 Upcoming Unrestricted Free Agents Who Could Be Traded This Year

Danny Granger

Owning an unrestricted free agent (UFA) in the NBA is a sticky situation. Most of these players have proved their worth, and are circling a large contract in the coming offseason. As a contending team it could be tough to retain the services of these players while remaining under the tax moving forward. There is also the risk of locking a player down long term only to see their best days are behind them. Read More »

10 Of The Worst Players In The NBA This Season

Jan Vesely

The athletes that play in the NBA are genetic freaks. Nothing against football players or swimmers but when it comes to hitting the genetic lottery, the NBA is full of them. Tall, freakishly long-limbed, endowed with incredible physiques and hand-eye coordination and abnormally high amounts of fast-twitch muscle fibers… it just doesn’t get any freakier than the NBA.

NBA Players Respond After The Release Of Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto 5

The new Grand Theft Auto 5 was released yesterday, and a lot of NBA players are touting it’s tripartite POV narration as well as other assorted features of the Rockstar classic. We’ve given you its trailer already, but lets hear from the NBA players that have already spent most of yesterday hooked on its immersive world during the last few weeks of the offseason.

Miami, Chicago & Detroit Should Not Amnesty These 3 Players

Mike Miller

To amnesty or not to amnesty, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler to keep an expiring contract or shed the player to suffer the slings and arrows of the cap hit—while still paying the amnestied player—is a question 11 teams will decide in the ensuing week. We’ve got three amnesty candidates who should stay with their respective teams, but are at risk this week. Read More »

Carmelo Anthony Has 90 Points In His Last 2 Games; The Best High School Players Show Out

Carmelo Anthony

After Carmelo Anthony hung 50 points on the Miami Heat, we asked whether he was filming his own “Better Basketball: How To Score From Deep” DVD. And again, last night, we don’t think Spike Lee was putting together any “Carmelo Doin’ Work” videos, but someone really should’ve capitalized off this. Anthony was clipping the wings off the Hawks, and had an assembly line of defenders getting buckets in the face. Read More »

Kyrie Irving Can’t Beat Denver By Himself; A Philly Surprise Erupts

Andre Iguodala

Once we saw the schedule had Denver and Cleveland last night, we set our watches. Ty Lawson. Kyrie Irving. Could it get any better? The matchup never materialized, however, and Lawson is probably thankful for that. He scored just 11 while Irving dropped 26 points and seven assists. But part of that stems from Denver being one of the deepest teams in the league, and Irving being asked to do everything outside of fill his team’s water bottles. Read More »

A Charge And A Three Save Boston; Pau Gasol Denies The Lakers Another Bad Road Loss

Paul pierce Tebow

Someone forgot to tell Boston they don’t have Rajon Rondo or Jared Sullinger for the rest of this season. The Celtics ran off their fourth straight win after losing their All-Star starter point guard a week ago by devouring the short-handed Clippers, then holding on for dear life at the end, 106-104. One Caron Butler dunk aside (we’ll get to that in a second), the Celtics were clearly the dominant team in the first half and even led by 19. Read More »

The Nuggets Contain The Thunder In OT; The Kings Are One Hurdle Away From Moving To Seattle

Kenneth Faried

Denver had an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter and all looked good on the edge of the Rocky Mountains in the Nuggets’ drive to knock-off league-best Oklahoma City. Kevin Durant (37 points, seven boards and eight assists on 7-of-20 shooting) and Russell Westbrook (36 points, 10-of-26 shooting) were being contained via constant harassment, as much as the superstar tandem can be anyway. The Nugs looked like they were about to make amends after a sloppy loss in OKC last week. These two always make for great games and Denver’s eventual 121-118 win in OT was one of the very best, with two endings that were crazy. Read More »
