Is This Nate Robinson Dime The Assist Of The Year?

Nate Robinson

The degree of difficulty here is why we’re wondering if this might be the assist of the year. Nate Robinson is a scoring dynamo, so it was kind of shocking to watch him ignore a shot right at the rim to instead find JaVale McGee for the layup plus the foul. Except, it’s how Nate made it happen that’s so magnificent. Read More »

Watch JaVale McGee Give A Court-Side Fan A Smooch She’ll Never Forget

There are a lot of reasons fans write off JaVale McGee as wasted potential. The seven foot Nuggets center has become synonymous with on-court goofiness, so much so that Shaqtin’ a Fool could be renamed “Pullin’ A JaVale.” That being written, he’s also endearingly sweet, which he showed off during Denver’s big, 117-97, win over the Pelicans on Friday night.

Worse Air Ball: JaVale McGee Free Throw, Or Travis Wear Putback?

JaVale McGee Air Ball

The Knicks outscored the Nuggets 31-8 in the second quarter on Sunday. During that second quarter stomping that led to a 109-93 win at the Garden — snapping a seven-game losing streak for the Knicks — JaVale McGee suffered the mortifying shame of the air ball on a free throw attempt. Except, that might not have been the worst air ball of the day, as Knicks rookie sub Travis Wear did his best to one-up McGee. Read More »

Video: Steve Blake Offended By Kenneth Faried Screen, So He Puts Him On His Butt

Kenneth Faried, Nate Robinson, Steve Blake

Steve Blake is right around our height, and we actually outweigh him by close to 10 pounds (yes, he’s all svelte muscle, and we’re a dilapidated former HS athlete who smokes cigarettes, but still). Kenneth Faried is nearly half a foot and more than 50 pounds heavier than Blake, but the size discrepancy didn’t matter during the fourth quarter of Portland’s 116-100 win last night when Blake took umbrage with Faried’s screen in his back.

Official Nuggets Twitter Trolls LeBron & Cavs

Kevin Love, LeBron James

The Cavs face the Nuggets tonight, after dropping three of their first four to open a 2014-15 NBA season with title hopes. LeBron James has looked off his game, and Kyrie Irving has already clashed with James about the way he runs the offense. Kevin Love has complained about getting more touches in the paint and first-time NBA coach David Blatt looks overwhelmed with his rotations. On top of all that drama — whether real, or exaggerated — the Nuggets official Twitter account decided to have a little fun at the expense of the presupposed Cleveland Big Three in their buildup before tonight’s contest.

DeMarcus Cousins

The Kings are 4-1! The Kings are 4-1!! Where are Mike Bibby, Peja and Vlade? Oh, right, this is Boogie’s team that’s 4-1. DeMarcus Cousins turned in another monster game last night with 30 points, 11 rebounds and two steals in ONLY 22 MINUTES!!! Forgive the exclamation points, but we’ve been rooting for Boogie for a while now, and this GIF of teammate Omri Casspi helping him out with his headband shows that Cousins is at the focal point of a Sac-town resurgence and actual team chemistry.

Kenneth Faried, Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins

We really, really don’t want to believe that this is the first recorded triple flop in history of the NBA. But after careful consideration and an initial inclination to judge it otherwise, we couldn’t come to any other other conclusion – Kenneth Faried, Rudy Gay, and DeMarcus Cousins all flopped simultaneously in Monday night’s matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings.
