The 15 Best Shooting Duos In NBA History

Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry

It’s rare when you can have two extremely gifted shooters on your team. The game just flows easier when you have multiple guys that can knock down shots from the stripe. After their breakout performances in last year’s playoffs, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (also known as “The Splash Brothers”) received the ultimate praise from their head coach Mark Jackson when he said in the Western Conference Semifinals last May, “I said I’ve got the greatest shooting backcourt that’s ever played the game.” Read More »

Report: Houston Rockets Back Away From Omer Asik Trade Talks

(Andrew Richardson/USA TODAY Sports)

It seems the Rockets’ self-imposed deadline today to trade resentful center Omer Asik will come and go and Asik will continue to back-up Dwight Howard in Houston — much to his chagrin. After a bevy of trade rumors had our heads spinning on Twitter yesterday, the Rockets apparently can’t find what they’re looking for in exchange for the Turkish center. Read More »

Gregg Popovich Learns From Rookie Coach Brad Stevens?

Gregg Popovich

Gregg Popovich has captured four NBA titles while coaching the San Antonio Spurs for more than 15 years, and he’s kept them in title contention even with aging stars Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili in the twilight of their careers.

Why We’re Rooting For Losses: Inside The Mind Of A Celtics Fan

Jeff Green

Before last night’s win over the Jazz, the Celtics had started out 0-4. In a normal year, that would be extremely disappointing. But under the circumstances, is it such a bad thing?

On one hand, there is talent on the roster and a promising new coach. On the other, that talent is extremely young and their superstar is still recuperating from a torn ACL. Last year, with more or less the same roster (oh and two Hall of Famers), the Celtics were ousted in the first round. Read More »

20 Craziest Fights In NBA History

fights

Gone are the days where two NBA teams who straight-up didn’t like each other could get together and elevate their rivalry with a brawl. Good riddance. Those who enjoy watching titans inflict pain on each other can find plenty of other vices to quench their thirst for violence. In fact, there are entire weekends devoted to it, with the college and professional rankings of football dedicated to humans crashing into each other and hoping they hurt their opponent as much as they want to hurt them.

The NBA’s 30 Best Second-Round Draft Picks Ever

Gilbert Arenas

Being a second-round pick in the NBA comes with no cheering, not much love, and no glory. Most times when someone is drafted in the second round, it’s the first time the NBA world is hearing their names. There’s a much higher percentage to become a player that records DNPs on a nightly basis than someone who becomes a role player, solid contributor, or even a star in the second round. Read More »

Rajon Rondo Unlikely To Return For Season’s Start

Rajon Rondo, Joan Rivers

After hearing that Derrick Rose is 100 percent, though he can do “almost everything,” some other banged up players are releasing timetables for their return. One player in particular will be taking on a lot of new responsibilities after the departure of his star teammates to Brooklyn. Unfortunately, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is unlikely to be ready by the season’s start after ACL surgery. Read More »

You might be too young to remember Larry Johnson at UNLV. Hell, you might be too young to remember Larry Johnson at Charlotte. But back in the day, Johnson was not only one of the best players in the nation for one of the best teams in NCAA history, he was also one of the most hated. Read More »
