TAG: Jason Thompson
If we ignore DeMarcus Cousins‘ blatant travel, it’s pretty easy to get excited about this putback dunk by Jason Thompson. And if you recall, Thomas Robinson did something very similar to Dwight Howard not too long ago. Odd right? Sacramento beat the Lakers again last night, but at this point in the preseason, the only thing to take away are the highlights. Read More »
Beast of the Night: Chris Paul finished with 34 points, five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and four three-pointers. He shot 50 percent (10-20) from the floor and 91 percent (10-11) from the charity stripe, and had two turnovers. CP3 has been a top three stud this season, which is about as surprising as Metta World Peace contradicting his surname. Read More »
Beast of the Night: Luol Deng finished his big night with 26 points, six rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block. He shot 43 percent (9-21) from the floor and 100 percent (8-8) from the free-throw line, and had one turnover. For the season, Deng has admirably produced top 50 averages for his fantasy basketball owners. His production shouldn’t be too damaged once Derrick Rose returns this weekend. Read More »
While it seemed all eyes were on the charity games hosted by Drew Gooden and Rajon Rondo this weekend, there was another game going on as well. Case in point: Donte Greene‘s Goon Squad Classic went down on Sunday night at the UC Davis Pavilion, and players like Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins, Jimmer Fredette, Jason Thompson, Isaiah Thomas, Matt Barnes, Hassan Whiteside, and Spencer Hawes put in work.

Personally, I’m not that big a fan of Halloween. And when it lands on a Monday, it seems like the holiday just never ends.

After the jump, check out the NBA’s best Halloween costumes from this year. Read More »
The Sacramento Kings have sky-high potential when it comes to fantasy appeal. The question is whether they’ll have enough touches and shots to appease all the offensive weapons available. With so many mouths on this team to feed, fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check when it comes to the weekly production of any one of the Kings’ main rotation players. Read More »
We told you about the game, but if you weren’t one of the 8,722 people that made it into the Palestra yesterday, see what went down. And make sure you check after the jump for some raw footage of LeBron James going off 43 points and 23 rebounds in the game, and the Top 10 plays from the night.
UPDATE: Tyreke Evans has committed to play for Team Philly.
What started as a friendly debate between former Syracuse teammates Carmelo Anthony and Hakim Warrick, has turned into a full-blown, winner-take-all grudge match. And as with all basketball debates, this one can only be settled on the court. On Sept. 25 at 6 p.m., ‘Melo will take his talents down I-95 to the City of Brotherly Love, along with a squad that features LeBron James, Chris Paul and Kevin Durant. They will compete against Warrick’s team featuring Philly products Wayne Ellington, Markieff and Marcus Morris, John Salmons, and Flip Murrary. Read More »
During his first two seasons with the Kings, Jason Thompson averaged 11.8 points and 7.9 rebounds in 29.7 minutes per game. However, after Sacramento drafted DeMarcus Cousins and traded for Samuel Dalembert this summer, JT has found himself playing just over 15 minutes a night. According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, Sacramento offered Thompson to Atlanta for Jeff Teague, but were turned down by the Hawks. Read More »
