The 20 Best College Teams Of The Last 25 Years To Never Win An NCAA Title

Derrick Rose

If you watched the NCAA tournament this past weekend, you had the chance to witness that the best teams do not always win. We saw Duke lose to a 14-seeded Mercer team that destroyed all of our brackets, while also witnessing Kansas, Ohio State, Syracuse, North Carolina and Wichita State all fall early. Having the best talent can only get you so far when it comes to tournament time. In a tournament where anything can happen, it takes a great team that plays together to win the NCAA title–not just a group of individuals. Read More »

Ballhandling is a skill that can define a player. Now that the game of basketball has been influenced more than ever by streetball played on the blacktop, ballhandling skills are increasingly being showcased and developed by players. Strong handles, whether it is a simple behind-the-back crossover or a hesitation move, can benefit the player in a multitude of ways. It is an entertaining, yet difficult to master method to take advantage of an opponent. Read More »

Video: Deron Williams’ Sick Reverse Layup

Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer

Deron Williams might not ever be the player he was in Utah, but that doesn’t mean he can’t turn back the clock when he’s feeling healthy. He was feeling healthy during Brooklyn’s 96-80 domination of the visiting Bulls on Monday night. After catching the Paul Pierce dish, D-Will tossed in a remarkable reverse layup after breaking away from the clinging arm of Kirk Hinrich and around the outstretched arms of Carlos Boozer.

The 15 Most Lopsided Trades In NBA History

Joe Johnson

The trade deadline truly brings out the worst in desperate franchises looking to make a hasty deal. The main facilitator behind huge deals made at the deadline is the fact that the main player the deal is surrounding may leave during free agency, leaving the team he plays for with nothing other than an open roster spot. Rather than risk that, teams will instead pull the trigger and trade their star player for what usually turns out to be a couple of draft picks, aging veterans or unproven players. Read More »

Video: Anthony Davis Stuffs D-Will After Crossover

Anthony Davis, Kevin Garnett

The length of Anthony Davis is overwhelming when you think about how easily and naturally he moves around the court. Guys that are 6-10 with a 7-5.5 wingspan aren’t supposed to be able to stay with point guards. Especially not point guards that used to be all-stars, like Deron Williams. On Sunday, D-Will found himself facing Ant and used his quickness to cross him up. But the Brow recovered in time to block the shot and immediately leak out for what turned into a breezy dunk on the other end. Read More »

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 »

Joe Johnson Beats The Thunder On The Buzzer-Beating Jumper

The Nets really needed a win in Oklahoma City tonight. Coach Jason Kidd has been under a lot of scrutiny since demoting assistant Lawrence Frank, and the Nets had lost five of their last seven to fall to 10-21, good for the No. 13 spot in the East, with only the Bucks and Knicks trailing. But Joe Johnson — despite a tough night shooting — nailed the step-back 20-footer over Serge Ibaka to provide the Nets a much-needed road victory. Read More »
