Jeremy Tyler is more known for the winding way he’s arrived at basketball courts around the world than what he’s done on them to this point. The player who skipped his senior year of high school in San Diego to play in Israel and then Japan has bounced back and forth between Golden State and its D-League affiliate, Santa Cruz, for the past two seasons. The dunk he pulled off on Dec. 23 against Bakersfield needs no introduction, however. Just watch. Read More »
Beast of the Night: LeBron James put up 41 points, six rebounds, four assists, three steals, a block and a three-pointer last night in a start at shooting guard for the Heat. He shot 60 percent (15-25) from the floor and 77 percent (10-13) from the free-throw line, and had four turnovers.

While exhibition games are cool, there’s nothing quite like basketball in league form. And with the NBA on hold, this month’s “Lockout League” at Impact Basketball in Las Vegas brought us the next best thing. With that, check out the full recap from our friends at Hoopmixtape. Enjoy!

After all the rumors, all the trade speculation, all the gossip, our biggest trade of the day came before the draft even started. Yes, we figured Kyrie Irvingwould go No. 1, followed by Derrick Williams and then after that, all bets were off because the prospect level just wasn’t that good. But we wanted moves.
