Delonte West’s Last Chance Might Hinge On Clippers’ Summer League Team

Delonte West

Delonte West last played in the NBA during the 2011-12 season with the Dallas Mavericks. Since then, he’s been trying to make his way back, spending time in the D-League with the Texas Legends and playing with Fujian Xunxing in China this past season. Last month, Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reported West will be part of the Los Angeles Clippers summer league team in Las Vegas. He only turns 31 later this month, but this could be his last chance.

The 10 Best College Teams Of The Past Decade

Derrick Rose

The best college basketball teams of the decade is a debate that can take forever to hash out, depending on how you define best. When people think of best their first thought is probably always going to be championships. Although that is a great indicator, should that be the only measuring stick to judge the quality of a team and the lasting impression it left on a decade? Read More »

LeBron’s 20 Best Dunks In The NBA

LeBron James

This past Friday, I found myself removed from my seat following another towering slam by LeBron James when I came to the realization that the four-time MVP may be the best entertainer in the country at the moment. And if that didn’t convince me, all I had to do was watch the Heat on Christmas. Those two dunks he caught from Dwyane Wade? OMG. Read More »

Report: Lakers Consider Signing Delonte West

Delonte West

Once Steve Nash hit the shelf with a broken fibula suffered in the second game of the season (now complicated by a nerve irritation in his lower left leg), the Lakers first tried Steve Blake at the point. He didn’t work out, and then got injured himself. Next came Darius Morris, a failed experiment if there ever was one. Currently, it’s Chris Duhon‘s turn, and get this: if you go by PER, he’s having his best year since 2009, despite averaging just 4.2 points and 3.8 assists a night (those numbers are up to 8.8 points and 7.8 assists as the Lakers’ starting point guard over the past four games).

Houston GM Calls James Harden A “Foundational” Player; Jeremy Lin Has A Hater In Brooklyn

James Harden

Give NBA uber-dork Daryl Morey some credit. The Houston general manager somehow took the Rockets through the final bitter months of the Tracy McGrady era, beyond the retirement of Yao Ming, and even on past the whole Dwight Howard saga. All along, the Rockets stayed competitive. No one’s talking championships in H-Town, but they’re always a solid team, and that’s more than the have-nots in Charlotte, Sacramento and New Orleans can say. Read More »

Paul Pierce Drops Buckets In A Loss; Chicago Shows Off Their New Point Guard

Paul Pierce

For years, even as he masqueraded between the NBA’s best passer and a subsequent weirdo off the court, we heard the Celtics’ were Rajon Rondo‘s team. In a sense, we were right: they go as he goes, and during the playoffs – when the chips are most valuable – Rondo perennially turned in near-ESPN Classic performances. But did Boston follow his lead in the locker room? Did he have the presence to outweigh Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett? Read More »

John Wall Carries “The Weight Of The World”; Chris Duhon Is The Other Guy In Los Angeles

John Wall

John Wall is that No. 1 pick whose team has never progressed out of the high first round picks around him. How much of that is on him now? It’s a subject we’ve written about at length when we put him on our cover twice in the last year. Today his college coach, John Calipari said it’s not all on Wall — even after conceding that he “must improve” in between the rim and the three-point line — and that a 19-year-old shouldn’t be saddled with “the weight of the world” on his shoulders.

Mavs Are Favorites To Get Dwight Howard In 2013; AK-47 To Minnesota

Dwight Howard 2012 NBA All-Star

So let’s say you’re Dwight Howard. You’re stuck in no man’s land, having destroyed your reputation almost beyond repair – seriously, will anyone look at the big man the same way again? This Dwightmare will follow him for the rest of his career. At least The Decision was a one-time deal – and you might actually have to suit up with the Orlando Magic come Halloween. If you needed a recipe for “How to create a PR disaster” then seeing Howard and the Magic trying to work out this marriage through the first half of 2012-13 will be it. How Orlando hasn’t moved on yet, we have no clue. There’s one rule that goes with trading superstars in the NBA, and it’s this: you never get equal value. Holding out only makes it worse. Read More »
