Kevin Durant To Jeremy Lamb: “Give Me The F******* Ball!”

Kevin Durant

Matthew Dellavedova is a dogged defender, but he’s no match for Kevin Durant. Apparently Jeremy Lamb thinks otherwise. As the 6-11 Durant was being checked by the 6-4 Dellavedova in the post during the Oklahoma City Thunder’s victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, watch Lamb look off his teammate and the reigning MVP’s ensuing reaction.

Assessing The Oklahoma City Thunder In Wake Of Kevin Durant’s Injury

Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka

Kevin Durant is irreplaceable. The Oklahoma City Thunder could perhaps duplicate the reigning MVP’s incredible production by using a cavalcade of young reserves in his approximate two-month absence due to a Jones fracture, but the threat of Durant can’t be reproduced. And once you account for the massive strides he made last season as a playmaker and defender, it becomes even clearer that the Thunder will have to make wholesale adjustments while their franchise player recovers.

We Reminisce: Kemba Walker’s 2011 NCAA Tournament Run

Kemba Walker

I was watching Connecticut play Memphis last Thursday night on ESPN in the American Athletic Conference Quarterfinals and I heard one of the announcers say there is not one individual in UConn’s history whose team leaned on him more during a season than current senior guard Shabazz Napier. Napier won the league’s player of the year honors and has been tremendous this year, but I cannot agree with the statement. What Kemba Walker accomplished during the 2011 college basketball season was truly remarkable and fun to watch. Kemba was the unquestionable leader for the Huskies and the main reason why they won the NCAA championship in 2011. Walker took young players such as Napier and Jeremy Lamb under his wing during the season and put on one of the best performances throughout the month of March that I have ever seen. Read More »

The Only 5 Teams That Can Win An NBA Championship This Year

Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

The NBA is a state of repair.

No, the games and the talent on the court are perfectly fine, exemplary actually, but the disparity of quality between the East and West and there being only five teams capable of winning a title this year is something that needs to be addressed.

It is historic how poor the Eastern Conference is right now, which is leading to a two-team race to the top between the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat. At the moment, there are are only three teams in the East with a winning record (Toronto is 15-15), with the third, the Atlanta Hawks, not a threat to either of them. Read More »

The 5 Most Disappointing Lottery Picks From The 2012 NBA Draft

Thomas Robinson

Every year before the NBA Draft, through countless hours of analyzing, GMs are ultimately left guessing which player would be best for his organization. The most common words or phrases thrown around are “potential” and “high ceiling.” There are players who had better college careers than others, but because of a lack of athleticism, they get overlooked. There are indicators that help in evaluating players, but it is rare to be certain of a strong NBA player until he steps foot on an NBA court. Read More »
