Dwyane Wade’s 20 Most Clutch Moments

Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade (Steve Mitchell/USA TODAY Sports)

In his time with Miami, Dwyane Wade has constructed quite the highlight reel.

He has the traditional highlights that most stars possess: dunks, blocks, passes, robust statlines. It’s his timeliness, however, that separates himself from so many of the league’s greats. That rare ability to take in a moment that would usually make those who are weak to have their knees shake and their palms to sweat. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: The Week’s Best Pickups (11.26)

Aaron Brooks

FRESH PICKINGS: Aaron Brooks (10 percent owned in Yahoo!, 1 percent owned in ESPN) It looks like the Kings’ point guard situation is finally resolving itself, with Aaron Brooks leading the pack of late. After a clunker in his first start against Brooklyn, he has averaged 14.3 points, 2.6 assists and 2.6 threes per game. He’s never going to dominate any defensive stats and he may sometimes tank your field goal percentage, but it was just three seasons ago when Brooks was a hot commodity in fantasy, pouring in 19.6 points on 2.5 threes per game for the Houston Rockets. He is well worth a speculative add. Read More »

Video: The Best Dunks Of The 2012 Summer

Werm

We saw Aquille Carr go wild. We saw Tyreke Evans showing off that one-of-a-kind handle. Overall, this summer was great. Even if it wasn’t touching the lockout summer from 2011 – and how could it? – we saw street performers and legit pros everywhere pushing the limits of what we thought possible. Now, we can all sit back and wait for the highlight mixes to start rolling in. Check the video below for the very best dunks of the summer from Team 511. Read More »

Mavs Are Favorites To Get Dwight Howard In 2013; AK-47 To Minnesota

So let’s say you’re Dwight Howard. You’re stuck in no man’s land, having destroyed your reputation almost beyond repair – seriously, will anyone look at the big man the same way again? This Dwightmare will follow him for the rest of his career. At least The Decision was a one-time deal – and you might actually have to suit up with the Orlando Magic come Halloween. If you needed a recipe for “How to create a PR disaster” then seeing Howard and the Magic trying to work out this marriage through the first half of 2012-13 will be it. How Orlando hasn’t moved on yet, we have no clue. There’s one rule that goes with trading superstars in the NBA, and it’s this: you never get equal value. Holding out only makes it worse.

Jeremy Pargo Smashes An Absurd Dunk On Kevin Seraphin

Jeremy Pargo

These are always the best facials: When a small guy jams on a center, especially after revving himself up with the two-footed jump stop. Jeremy Pargo only had one basket last night, but this one got Tony Allen up out of his chair on the bench and celebrating like only he can. Allen’s bench theatrics are legendary this year, but we’d be doing the same thing if we saw this live. Read More »

Chris Paul Saves The Clippers; UNC Might’ve Lost Their Shot At A Title

Chris Paul

The Clippers haven’t been right for a while. Since they lost Chauncey Billups to his devastating injury, they’ve actually been below .500, much closer to the older Clippers than the team that was supposed to snatch Hollywood from their bigger brother. Luckily, they have Chris Paul. Three or four times this year, he’s bailed them out. He did it again in overtime of their 87-83 win over the Pistons. He started off the extra frame with two swagger-filled long jumpers, and then made the shot that broke Detroit’s back with 22 seconds left. Read More »

Jeremy Lin Is The Next LeBron… Statistically; Austin Rivers Is A Straight G

Austin Rivers

Austin Rivers

When Dime‘s own Sean Sweeney ventured into the Dean Dome last night, all we wanted was an overtime or a buzzer beater. We got what we came for. Austin Rivers is a stone cold assassin. He’s like Vincent from Collateral, except with blacker hair, and just doesn’t give a you know what. On the final possession of the biggest game of his life, Rivers came off the screen and roll just as he had probably 30 other times throughout the game, sized up Tyler Zeller and unleashed hell to bring Duke a one-point win on the road.

Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 12.29

LeBron James

Beast of the Night: LeBron James had himself a typically big line to the tune of 35 points, six rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocks. He shot 57 percent (13-23) from the field, 100 percent (9-9) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. Through three games, James is averaging 32.7 points on 59 percent shooting from the field and 87 percent shooting from the charity stripe. The odd thing is that he has yet to attempt a single three-pointer. The fact that he’s been such a stud without a three-pointer says volumes about his fantasy value. It’s early, but James looks like the probable top dog in fantasy basketball this season. Read More »

Kevin Durant

While we don’t know exactly where Kevin Durant will be playing this winter, we do know he’ll make a decision by October. In the meantime, we will have to just catch this summer’s undisputed MVP continue to murder the summer league scene. After dropping another easy 44 in a Goodman League game this weekend, KD told the Washington Post that while he is weighing his overseas options, just like everyone else, he doesn’t want to rush into anything.
