A Love Letter To Regal, Renegade NBPA Director, Michele Roberts

Michele Roberts

We’re sick of casual basketball fans, and even some diehard fanatics, telling us NBA players — who have the highest average per-year salary of all four major sports — make too much money. Their salaries are capped, teams are capped, and they split the Basketball-Related Income (BRI) with the owners after losing the 2011 CBA negotiations. These same people often sing paeans to America’s free market economic system, too.* New NBPA Director, Michele Roberts, spoke out against the *billionaire* owners in a conversation with ESPN the Magazine, and now we’re in love.

Dime Q&A: Eric Bledsoe On Call of Duty, His Extension, Jeff Hornacek’s FT’s & More

Eric Bledsoe

Suns guard Eric Bledsoe went through some turmoil this offseason as a restricted free agent. He signed his qualifying offer last fall after the team made it clear they wanted to wait until he had proven himself in a starter’s role after backing up Chris Paul for three years with the Clippers. Then, a shin ailment digressed into a torn meniscus and Bledsoe missed half of the 2013-14 regular season after having surgery to remove the meniscus. In what time he did appear in the Suns’ double-headed backcourt with All-NBA Third Team member, Goran Dragic, Bledsoe showed he’s a more-than capable starter in the Association. Read More »
