Andrea Bargnani Tops Forbes’ 2014 List Of The Most Overpaid NBA Players

Andrea Bargnani, Jamal Crawford

Last season, Forbes ranked Carmelo Anthony as the NBA’s most overpaid player. This year, through the first half of the 2013-14 season, Forbes calculates that it’s still a Knick who is the league’s most overpaid. Andrea Bargnani is this season’s most overpaid NBA player, shocking no one, except perhaps former Knicks GM Glen Grunwald who traded for the disappointing former No. 1 pick this summer. Read More »

Report: NBA All-Star Reserves Announced

Tim Duncan, Paul Millsap

During tonight’s TNT double-header they announced the reserves in the 2014 All-Star Game, and one name was noticeably absent out West. Tim Duncan missed out on his 15th All-Star selection despite helping the Spurs to the second-best record in the Western Conference, but his teammate, Tony Parker, made it as a reserve. There are also four first-time All-Stars among the reserves, all but one coming from the Eastern Conference. Lets get to them… Read More »

The NBA’s 10 Most Underachieving Teams

Rudy Gay

There’s a clear difference in a team that’s attempting to tank and a team that is flat out bad. There are teams that are constructed to be bad. Take the Philadelphia 76ers for example. The roster consists of players like Elliot Williams, Lorenzo Brown, James Anderson and Brandon Davies. Bless your soul if you know who any of those players are. Read More »

The Nets really needed a win in Oklahoma City tonight. Coach Jason Kidd has been under a lot of scrutiny since demoting assistant Lawrence Frank, and the Nets had lost five of their last seven to fall to 10-21, good for the No. 13 spot in the East, with only the Bucks and Knicks trailing. But Joe Johnson — despite a tough night shooting — nailed the step-back 20-footer over Serge Ibaka to provide the Nets a much-needed road victory. Read More »

Brooklyn Nets, Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Paul Pierce

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (12.20)

Roy Hibbert

BUY LOW ROY HIBBERT, Indiana Pacers The best time to send out a buy low offer is after a player has a couple of forgettable performances, so now is the time to strike on Hibbert. He’s averaging 12.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.9 blocks on the season, but his last two games have left much to be desired. Read More »

The 5 Most Dysfunctional Franchises In The NBA

Shaun Livingston, Kevin Garnett, Joe Johnson

If there’s one thing more entertaining than a franchise that has all of its bearings together and knows how to put out a great, watchable product, it’s a franchise that is capable of doing the exact opposite. A dysfunctional franchise is a gift to the casual NBA viewer in need of entertainment through the early, slower part of the regular season. Even though the team is usually bad — there are dysfunctional franchises that could put out a respectable team — it brings so much joy to watch a team struggle at some of the most simple aspects of the game.

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (12.6)

Kyrie Irving

BUY LOW KYRIE IRVING, Cleveland Cavaliers You’re still going to have to give up a lot in exchange for a stud like Irving, but owners are fed up with his underachieving and are certainly more likely to deal him now than they were at the beginning of the year. The former Rookie of the Year is shooting a career-low 40 percent from the field and the rise in assists that was talked about all summer simply hasn’t happened. He’s also experiencing dips in free throw percentage, three-pointers and steals. Read More »
