Mavericks Follow Rajon Rondo On Twitter; Rockets Prefer Goran Dragic

Rajon Rondo

If the Dallas Mavericks really are the most ardent pursuers of Rajon Rondo, they’re not doing a good job of playing coy. Hours after a report emerged that the Boston Celtics point guard would be “open” to re-signing with Mark Cuban’s team, the Mavs followed Rondo on Twitter. Read More »

GIF: Goran Dragic’s Behind-The-Back Layup In Scorching First Quarter

Matt Barnes, Goran Dragic

There was no end to the drama in last night’s late game between the Clippers and Suns. You all know how it ended — with Blake Griffin putting a game-winning exclamation mark on his season-high 45-point night. For Phoenix, they relied on their guard play to stay in the game, and Goran Dragic started things off with a big first quarter capped by a gorgeous around-the-back move for the layup. Read More »

Goran Dragic will likely opt out of the final year of his Suns contract this summer in an attempt to secure a bigger deal. Whether his new deal ends up being the maximum allowable depends on his performance this season and the looming cap increase after the billions in TV-rights dinero is unleashed. Dragic showed why he might demand max money during Phoenix’s lopsided win over a short-handed Spurs team last night. Read More »

The Top 20 Point Guards In The NBA Right Now

Chris Paul, Stephen Curry

To survive in today’s NBA, you need a good point guard. You just do. Of the teams that finished last season with the eight best records, six of them either had an All-Star point guard or LeBron James. The other two teams were the Indiana Pacers (who, without the stability that a good point guard brings, fell apart down the stretch) and the Houston Rockets (eliminated in the first round).

The point guard on a basketball court is like the quarterback on the gridiron. He’s the general, the leader, the boss.

The NBA in 2014 is littered with talented point guards. And just like the “Who’s the best quarterback in the NFL?” arguments, few NBA debates spark disagreement like the “Who’s the best point guard in the NBA?” debate does.

Delusional Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant fans notwithstanding, we’re all generally in agreement that James is, hands down, the best basketball player in the world. The point guard debate is a different monster. There are four or five different guys that, depending on whom you ask, can be considered the NBA’s alpha dog point guard.

The good news is that I’m here to finally settle the debate. Here are the NBA’s top 20 point guards. Read More »

The Top 10 Offensive Players In The NBA Today

Chris Paul, Steph Curry, Blake Griffin

When Stephen Curry said he was a better offensive player than LeBron James, a lot of people guffawed. The fidelity of Steph’s answer can be debated — personally, we think it’s closer than most believe, and of course he’d choose himself — but the premise is an interesting way of looking at the game: Who exactly are the best offensive players in the NBA? Forgetting defense for a moment, here’s an attempt to rank, in order, the 10 best offensive players in the NBA today. Read More »

Report: Suns Sign Zoran Dragic; Plan Lucrative Offer To Goran Dragic

Zoran Dragic, Goran Dragic

Fresh off their massive, five-year, $70-million extension for restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe, the Suns also bought out Slovenian guard, Zoran Dragic, from Unicaja Málaga of the Spanish League. Zoran is of course the brother of point guard Goran Dragic. Phoenix general manager Ryan McDonough also said they’ll have plenty of money next summer to offer Goran a lucrative new deal after he opts out. Read More »

Report: Goran Dragic Plans To Opt Out Next Summer Then Re-Sign With The Suns

Goran Dragic

We can file this under, duh. Suns guard and Slovenian wunderkind, Goran Dragic has a $7.5 million player option next summer. Dragic averaged career highs across the board on offense this past season while getting named to the All-NBA Third Team, so it stands to reason he’d exercise his option and become a free agent. Today he seemed to make it clear he’ll do just that when the time comes, but Suns fans shouldn’t worry about losing the Dragon, he wants to stay in town. Read More »

Report: Suns Could Lose Bledsoe, Dragic In Free Agency; Lakers Interested

Eric Bledsoe, Goran Dragic

The 2014-2015 Los Angeles Lakers are a patchwork team. Carlos Boozer and Jeremy Lin are playing on expiring contracts, Steve Nash will likely retire after this season, and Los Angeles has a team option on 2015-2016 for the re-signed Jordan Hill. Even Kobe Bryant isn’t in the Lakers’ long-term plans; there’s a very real possibility he hangs up his Nikes after next season. Only rookie Julius Randle and Nick Young will surely be with Los Angeles past 2016. Read More »

GIF: Goran Dragic’s Double Crossover Against Team USA

Goran Dragic, Kyrie Irving

The USA – Slovenia game on Tuesday afternoon seemed like a cakewalk for the USA. They won every quarter, and cruised to a 101-71 victory that kept them undefeated in international play since 2006. Still, Goran Dragic continued to show flashes of brilliance for Slovenia and on one sequence proved why he was a third team All-NBA selection last season. Read More »
