Celtics Reveal New Sleeved Jerseys For St. Patrick’s Day (Video & Pic)

Celtics Sleeved St. Pattys Day Jerseys

The NBA’s use of sleeved jerseys has taken some hits in the press, most notably from four-time MVP and two-time defending NBA champion, LeBron James. While some players gripe that they feel uncomfortable, a lot of fans love them, and they’re a big moneymaker even if purists hate the way they look. Now the Celtics are unveiling a sleeved iteration to celebration St. Patty’s Day. Read More »

Memphis Coach Lionel Hollins Forgets Jerryd Bayless’ Name

Lionel Hollins

Honestly, Jerryd Bayless was one of the few Grizzlies who played somewhat decent during the Spurs’ blowout Game 1 win this afternoon. So we were rolling in the postgame presser when coach Lionel Hollins couldn’t remember his name. Read More »

Kevin Durant Unleashes One Of The Best Plays Of The Season

Kevin Durant

While the ghost of Derek Fisher nearly won this game for Oklahoma City — seriously, the Grizzlies probably expected anything else before expecting Fisher to go for 19 points — Kevin Durant was undeniably the best player on the floor. Read More »

The 2 Biggest Hidden X-Factors In Tonight’s Memphis/Clippers Game 3

Jerryd Bayless

Tonight, Memphis will be rocking with the Grizzlies back in town and their season on the line. The pressure is there — if they lose this game, not only is the series over, but there’s a chance the team gets broken up in the offseason. Chris Paul saved the Clippers in Game 2, hitting a running floater off the glass at the buzzer to win it. But he’ll need help now that they’re on the road and in hostile territory. Read More »

NBA Players From 5 Playoff Teams Reveal Pregame Music Playlists

Kenneth Faried

Go into any basketball locker room in the world — CYO leagues, middle school, high school, or even in the NBA — and you’ll find sharpshooters, bench warmers, you’ll see Jordans, adidas and Reebok, you’ll see tall oafs and slippery guards, coaches that rarely say a word and coaches that never shut up. Every team will have it’s own unique flavor, it’s own unique environment. Read More »

Denver’s Winning Streak Is Over; John Wall Lights Up Memphis For 47 Points

Danilo Gallinari

Fifteen-game winning streaks generally don’t end at the hands of names like Brian Roberts, Darius Miller, Ryan Anderson and Roger Mason. Then again, 15-game winning streaks generally don’t end in 24-point blowouts at the hands of a 25-win team, either … Read More »

Wichita State Shocks Gonzaga; Memphis Grizzlies Lose Their Most Important Player

wichita state shockers

Despite the fact that they were the top seed in the weakest region of the NCAA Tournament, you could pretty much guess that Gonzaga was going to be the first No. 1 seed to get bounced. That scenario became a reality last night as the No. 9 seed Wichita State Shockers willed themselves to an upset vicory, 76-70, handing the ‘Zags their first loss in nine weeks … Gonzaga was in the driver’s seat deep into the second half, but WSU hit a stream of incredible jumpers down the stretch while flustering Gonzaga on the defensive end, exploiting a real weakness for the No. 1-ranked team in the country [They could have used some of this]. Gonzaga was basically playing 3-vs-5 on the offensive end, because David Stockton and Mike Hart rarely, if ever shoot, leaving everything to Kevin Pangos, Kelly Olynyk and Elias Harris to play against five guys. That might work when you’re beating up on the University of Portland, but that doesn’t fly in this setting. Read More »

LeBron James Destroys Cleveland To Keep Miami’s Winning Streak Alive; OKC/Memphis Put On A Show

LeBron James

You would think a hush would’ve rained over Cleveland. But on top of the constant hum, you could almost hear fans crying and wailing, and even Cleveland’s epic broadcast team sounded like they wanted to go lock themselves in a closet. It’s not every day you blow a 27-point lead… and it’s not every lifetime you can blow that lead against a team on a 23-game winning streak that has one of your city’s most hated athletes ever.

Brooklyn Has A Massive Meltdown Against The Lakers; Houston Scores 140 Points

Kobe Bryant

As much as we want to give credit to Kobe Bryant for icing the Lakers win in Brooklyn last night, L.A. should throw the Nets a bone. Brooklyn did everything they could outside of express mailing the W to Hollywood. Down the stretch, the Nets endured a couple of bad shots from Brook Lopez – one was an ugly airball – on poorly executed plays. Then, Gerald Wallace threw away an inbounds pass. Read More »

Rudy Gay Saves Memphis; A King Makes A Game-Winner In D.C.

Rudy Gay

The last time Rudy Gay posted up Evan Turner, the Sixers appointed nerd damn near ripped Gay’s arm out of his socket. That was back in 2011, and since then, Gay, Zach Randolph and the Grizz can’t go a week without someone pointing out that their marriage is doomed for failure. This time, the Gay-on-Turner post-up worked out a little better in Memphis’ three-point win in Philadelphia. Read More »
