90 NBA Players Reveal Their Favorite Pregame Music


Go into any locker room in the NBA… actually, go into any locker room in the country and you’ll hear some Meek Mill. Some Jigga. Some Drake. Music and basketball. The NBA and hip-hop. It all goes together. Read More »

Aside from the 2012-13 ROY Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers fans did not have a lot to get excited about last season. They badly whiffed on the playoffs after losing their final 13 games to finish a dismal 33-49. But during the off-season, GM Neil Olshey didn’t sit idly, content with a starter-heavy roster that collapsed down the stretch. The Blazers totally refurbished their bench, and now they’re one of many teams hoping for a place in next season’s Western Conference playoffs. Read More »

The Heat Cut Off San Antonio’s Head; Anthony Davis Sets A Kentucky Record

Chris Bosh

Miami’s pretty good when they put it together. The Spurs played perfectly through 24 minutes, and even got two ridiculous buzzer beaters from the same player, and yet it couldn’t stop them from getting completely stomped out on South Beach. After surrendering 63 first half points, the Heat responded with 71 of their own in the second half, LeBron and Bosh combined for 63 points and Miami ran away with the game, 120-98. Going into last night, the Spurs hadn’t won a road game all year. Miami had lost three in a row. One of the streaks had to end last night, and the Heat broke their visitor’s back. Read More »

Report: D-League’s Jamaal Tinsley To Sign With The Utah Jazz

Smith of The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah has signed the veteran point guard, and he’ll be in SLC tomorrow when training camp opens. Read More »

NBA Fantasy Team Analysis: The Utah Jazz

Al Jefferson

The Utah Jazz are a frontcourt-heavy team. They have about 3-4 big men capable of producing usable numbers if given sufficient minutes, which means that unless a trade happens to free things up there, some frustrating minutes-based limitations are in the cards. That said, the Jazz have a nice balance of productive veterans and up-and-coming players ready to make an impact on fantasy basketball whenever the NBA starts again. Read More »

Fantasy Trade Analysis: Deron Williams To The Nets

Deron Williams

The big NBA news today (so far, at least) is a deal that sends Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets in exchange for Devin Harris, Derrick Favors, two first-round draft picks and $3 million. There’s also a second deal that involves the Golden State Warriors, who will send Dan Gadzuric and Brandan Wright to the Nets in exchange for Troy Murphy. There’s a lot going on with this curveball, so grab your White Russian, lift it in honor of the shrewd Mikhail Prokhorov and read on for a quick assessment of the fantasy fallout. Read More »

5 NBA teams that could start Jordan Farmar

Jordan Farmar

Jordan Farmar wants to be a starter. So far in his four-year career with the Lakers, he has averaged 6.9 points and 2.1 assists in only 18.1 minutes a game, failing to distinguish himself from aging Derek Fisher or raw combo guard Shannon Brown as L.A.’s point guard of the future. And yet Farmar still maintained throughout the season and immediately following the Lakers’ championship run that he’s looking to be the No. 1 guy somewhere — whether it’s in L.A. or not. Now that he’s a free agent, where would Farmar have a shot at getting his wish? Read More »
