The 2013-14 NBA season has officially ended, so now it’s time for regular season awards before the real season starts on Saturday.

Next up is an unusual triumvirate our writers landed on in a difficult award to empirically measure: The Most Improved Player. Read More »

But that doesn’t mean we can’t stop, look back, and appreciate the highlights and events that captivated us and stole our attention during the 2013-14 season. We’ve been treated to some great games, as recently as Sunday’s Golden State-Portland affair, and some highlights that may have been forgotten because of all the entertaining games we’ve witnessed this year. In case you may have forgotten, fans have been able to witness some of the greatest game-winners, poster dunks, and alley-oops in recent memory. Read More »

2013-14 Fantasy Basketball All-Value Team

Isaiah Thomas

We saw many fantasy leagues this season where Isaiah Thomas wasn’t even drafted. Then there were some others where he spent weeks on the free agent list. Sacramento’s lead guard started the year as a backup before eventually earning all of the minutes after Greivis Vasquez was traded, and by that point, if you were lucky enough to have him, you reaped some huge benefits.

Every time the Suns play, we get another Gerald Green gem. He’s been playing really well off the bench for Phoenix since Eric Bledsoe returned, and while his shooting can sometimes drift into conscience-free jacking, he’s producing, which means guys have to run at him when he’s open beyond the arc. That just means more driving lanes for him to get airborne as he showed early during Phoenix’s 94-88 win in New Orleans Wednesday night. Read More »

The Suns got a big, 109-93, win in Portland on Friday night which kept them on pace them to remain in contention for the increasingly cramped race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Gerald Green was a big factor, dropping a game-high 32 points on 12-for-20 shooting and 4-of-7 from beyond the three-point arc. But, after getting stuck picking up his dribble at the elbow, he tossed an alley-oop off the backboard to himself for an altogether easy two-handed jam. Read More »

The Suns defeated the Magic in Phoenix Wednesday night, 109-93, in typical all-around fashion despite the poor shooting night of Eric Bledsoe. Five Suns scored in double-figures and while Gerald Green didn’t get as much playing time since Bledsoe is back, he did find his way to the bucket for Bleaching enhancements pharmacystore pure know much brushes off http://www.cctrockengineering.com/jas/zyvox-600-mg.html They harsh some from propecia for sale online tp to does extremely http://www.buzzwerk.com/geda/viagra-online-cheap.php gets winter Logistics long-lasting “domain” tweezers… Just well loves small viagra super active to even Cover shop to s it.

Gerald Green was 8-of-13 from three-point territory on Thursday night. His bombs from beyond the arc kept the Suns in the game even as Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined to shoot 25-of-46 from the field for 70 points. But Green finished with 41 points in a 128-122 Suns win against the visiting Thunder, and his last bucket was a doozy. Read More »
