Video: James Harden Hits Game-Winning Buzzer-Beater

James Harden

Any other night and James Harden is the biggest story in the NBA. But with Klay Thompson tossing daggers in the third quarter, Harden’s 33 points, 10 assists and game-winning buzzer-beater in a 113-111 Rockets win over the Suns were relegated to an afterthought. That’s a shame, too, because the Rockets off-guard came through like the superstar he’s become. Read More »

Charles Barkley: “Chris Paul Doesn’t Deserve To Make The All-Star Team”

Charles Barkley, Chris Paul

We love Charles Barkley, but far more for the glory of his past playing days past and overall gregarious nature. As a NBA analyst? Let’s just say we often disagree with Chuck. Does that mean he’s wrong in those specific cases? No; we’re hardly infallible. Even so, we’re very confident saying that Barkley’s assessment of Chris Paul’s All-Star candidacy is simply misguided.

James Harden

Today, just three games short of the mid-way point of the 2014-15 NBA season, the Warriors have the NBA’s best record at 33-6 — a .846 winning percentage.

They ain’t that good man.” A 25-point loss to the Warriors followed. Read More »

Video: James Harden Loses Pablo Prigioni With Cross, Hits Smooth Step-Back

James Harden

We’ll never fully understand those who maintain they dislike watching James Harden play basketball. Yes, he constantly draws fouls – some of a questionable nature – and can too often resort to stagnant, isolation-based offense. But how many players in the league can do stuff like this? Read More »

J.R. Smith Says “When In Doubt, Shoot” Then Badly Flops In Opening Cavs Game

J.R. Smith

Things didn’t go so well for J.R. Smith in his Cavs debut, but his pre-game comments should have tipped off fans. After Smith mentioned his shoot-first mentality before the game, he went 0-for-5 against Houston last night during a 105-93 loss to the Rockets. He also tried his best to draw a charge on James Harden and merely exacerbated his tough opening in Cleveland. Read More »
