Lovable Weirdos Chris Kaman and Robin Lopez Are Right At Home in Portlandia

Robin Lopez

Robin Lopez, or “ROLO” as he’s affectionately called these days, became a fan favorite here in Portland almost overnight. Rip City loves its weirdos, and ROLO fits right in here with his unwieldy hair, his nerdist tendencies (comic books, video games, Disney collectibles, anything fantasy related), and his categorical goofiness. But more than anything, it was his all-around hustle on the court that endeared him to fans. That, and

Report: Kaman Reaches Two-Year Deal With Blazers

Chris Kaman, Nicolas Batum, Robin Lopez

After signing with the Lakers last summer, Chris Kaman spent a large chunk of his time sitting on the bench, never really a factor in coach Mike D’Antoni’s run-and-gun style. Their issues extended off the court, too, and even though D’Antoni resigned, Kaman is done in Hollywood. Yahoo reports the 7-footer has agreed to a deal with the Trail Blazers paying him $9.8 million over the next two years. Read More »

GIF: Damian Lillard Throws It Down On Pau & Kaman

Chris Kaman, Damian Lillard, Pau Gasol

The Trail Blazers really needed last night’s 124-112 win at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. They’ve been hemorrhaging wins in the season’s second half and found themselves in the untenable position of possibly forfeiting a playoff spot over the season’s last month after racing out to one of the best records in the season’s first half. But they’ve steadied the ship, and Damian Lillard was back to his pre-All-Star game self with 34 points and a monstrous dunk on the Lakers’ big men. Read More »

Chris Kaman Hasn’t Spoken With Mike D’Antoni In Three Weeks

Chris Kaman, Amar'e Stoudemire

We’ve written extensively about the gloomy Lakers season, and most of the quotes out of Laker land are tinged with anger, embarrassment, backstabbing, Swaggy P bluster, and the type of excuses typical of franchises stuck in the basement of their respective division. But these are the Lakers, not a team used to losing regardless of injuries. A lot of people are blaming the coach, and now comes word center Chris Kaman hasn’t spoken to head coach Mike D’Antoni in three weeks. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: The Week’s 3 Best Pickups (A L.A. Lakers Edition)

Kendall Marshall

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.

Rulebook Saves Lakers From Playing 4-On-5 To Finish Cavs Game

Ryan Kelly

The Los Angeles Lakers’ injury woes continued on Wednesday night, resulting in one of the most bizarre finishes in NBA history. The Lakers came into Cleveland with only eight players healthy, as Steve Nash did not dress in order to rest in the second leg of a back-to-back. Nick Young left the game during halftime after a “twisted” knee. Then, there were seven. Things just got worse from there. Read More »

The NBA’s Top 10 Dunks Of The Week

Anthony Davis

We finally got it, NBA fans. We finally received our obligatory Blake Griffin dunk of the year where he embarrasses and steals the dignity of an unfortunate defender who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and attempted to foolishly defend the athletic anomaly that is the 6-10 Griffin.

Dwyane Wade’s 20 Best Dunks In The NBA

Once in awhile, we’re treated to watching Dwyane Wade unleash his athleticism all over the heads of multiple defenders, just as a reminder to know that he’s still capable of doing so. The poster dunks are less frequent, partly because of age and the fact that he doesn’t get the ball nearly as much as he did pre-LeBron, but they’re still harrowing to watch because of just how impressive Wade makes it look.

50 Best Nicknames In NBA History

Larry Bird, Magic Johnson

“Once you gain a nickname in this league, that’s the ultimate respect”Paul Pierce

In many cases, what Pierce said was true (see what I did there?). Many guys on this list earned their nicknames for great play on the court, and by no coincidence most of the best players in the history of the league appear on this list. Others earned their nicknames from funny commercials or movies, while still more earned them for just funny looks. We stayed away from shortening of names like “T-Mac” and “J-Kidd” or initials like “KJ,” focusing simply on the best nicknames. Read More »
