There’s something everyone needs to know about Mario Chalmers: his confidence is bordering on movie star-level. He really believes he’s one of the best big moment players in the game. Trust us. We’ve asked him before. Now, he’s saying he’s not just one of the best point guards in the world, but that he’s in the “front end of the top 10.” We’re not even sure Rajon Rondo would reach that far, and what’s funny about this is that Chalmers’ proclamation came from a question about Rondo’s standing in the game.

Earlier this week we gave dap to Jamaal Tinsley for nutmeg-ing Nazr Mohammed in a Jazz victory over the Thunder. Backup guard Earl Watson is still injured so Tinsley continues to get minutes and make plays.
In last night’s victory over the Kings (Jazz are on a five-game win streak y’all), Tinsley caught Sacramento Kings forward Donte Greene sleeping on defending the inbounds pass: Read More »

Beast of the Night: Stephen Curry finished with 36 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and six three-pointers last night against the Nuggets. He shot 77 percent (13-17) from the floor, 57 percent (4-7) from the free-throw line and had one turnover. For the season, Curry is averaging top five numbers, which is a shade better than what was expected of him heading into the season. So long as he’s healthy, Curry will remain a fantasy beast.

So they think they need a committee to study this stuff huh? It shouldn’t take a genius or even a formulation of a number of basketball minds to figure this one out, but as Yahoo! Sports is reporting, the NBA and the Player’s Association are discussing whether to form a committee to study the age minimum for the NBA draft with “the possibility that no immediate changes to the ‘one-and-done’ rule will come in the finalization of the new collective bargaining agreement.”
Good. Maybe they’ll finally discover what I’ve been saying all along. Read More »
While it seemed all eyes were on the charity games hosted by Drew Gooden and Rajon Rondo this weekend, there was another game going on as well.

After leading Washington to back-to-back conference titles in the Pac-10 Tournament the last two seasons, Isaiah Thomas decided the time was right to test his talents on another level: the NBA. During his time in Seattle, the 5-9 guard was nothing short of an offensive force. Averaging 16.8 points and 6.1 assists per game last season, Zeke was able to navigate UW to a Sweet Sixteen appearance in the NCAA Tournament. And as the kid embarks on his journey away from college and into the pros, we wanted to give him his own space, and voice, to roam. In his sixth installment, follow along with Isaiah on his journey as a member of the Sacramento Kings… Read More »
