2014 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot: Superhero Edition

Batman

The 2014 NBA Draft has been hyped for a couple years now. Some think it’s right up there with the 2003 Draft that featured the likes of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh. Others think it’s too early to tell what stars it might produce. Regardless, these rookies are already larger than life, so we thought it only appropriate to ask them during the 2014 NBA Rookie Shoot yesterday in Tarrytown, New York which superhero is their favorite.

Perhaps it’s time to add Glenn Robinson III to the list of rookies we need to see in February’s Dunk Contest at All-Star weekend. In New York City for a rookie photo shoot, Robinson challenged Minnesota Timberwolves teammate Zach LaVine via Twitter to beat his impressive 360 windmill. After LaVine bested that with an effortless between-the-legs slam, the UCLA product called-out number one pick Andrew Wiggins. These guys can really, really fly. Read More »

Top 10 Second-Round Picks In The 2014 NBA Draft

Cleanthony Early

Surprisingly, the NBA Draft went according to plan – for the most part at least. Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, and Joel Embiid were widely considered the top three prospects in this year’s class, and they ended up being the first three players to hear their names called by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.

First-round picks are supposed to make immediate impacts on their new teams. Cleveland is hoping Wiggins can develop into the second coming of LeBron James, the Jazz are hoping Dante Exum really is a mix of Rajon Rondo and Russell Westbrook, and the Lakers expect Julius Randle to be a centerpiece of the team’s future. Those are the kind of expectations that come with being a first-round pick. The expectations for a second-round pick, though? Well, they aren’t nearly as lofty. Read More »

Michigan Wolverines

In yesterday’s wild night of college basketball, we didn’t see just one last-second game-winner. We saw two, with both of them coming in the lane… in rivalry games… on the road. Impressive.

Dime Mock Draft 1.0: Andrew Wiggins Or Joel Embiid?

Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid

Okay, so maybe this year’s NBA Draft class isn’t quite as good as we thought. There are no LeBrons. No KDs. There might not even be a D-Wade in here. The class from 2003 is much better, and let’s not even go into discussions concerning the ’96 class or 1984. With that being said, there is a ton of talent, and we also have to remember: it’s not even February yet. With so many young players coming out, we can guarantee your opinion of them will be drastically different once we get closer to the summer. Read More »
