10 Of The Worst Players In The NBA This Season

Jan Vesely

The athletes that play in the NBA are genetic freaks. Nothing against football players or swimmers but when it comes to hitting the genetic lottery, the NBA is full of them. Tall, freakishly long-limbed, endowed with incredible physiques and hand-eye coordination and abnormally high amounts of fast-twitch muscle fibers… it just doesn’t get any freakier than the NBA.

Today, Pistons forward Josh Smith turns 28 years old, and Dime Magazine would like to celebrate by looking back at his 15 best dunks over his nine seasons in the NBA. Smith, a.k.a. J-Smoove, is notably known for his superior athleticism as a big man. His ability in the open court instantly increases the probability that a highlight play is coming your way. Detroit’s offseason signing of Smith – four years/$54 million – has created a beast of a starting frontcourt – along with Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe – that will only get more powerful as the season wears on.

Go into any locker room in the NBA… actually, go into any locker room in the country and you’ll hear some Meek Mill. Some Jigga. Some Drake. Music and basketball. The NBA and hip-hop. It all goes together. Read More »

14 Nicknames Miami Heat Players Should Use On Their Jerseys

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh

Leave it to the NBA to continue to find ways to draw interest in its product, even if the interest being brought is mixed with negative and positive reactions.

It was brought down from the NBA offices Monday night that the league will be giving the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets jerseys with the player’s nickname — instead of the last name — on the back. It’s not a permanent dealing, as it will only be used in certain games. Read More »

The Internet nearly blew up earlier this week when we posted video of Derrick Rose pulling off a recent through-the-legs dunk. Yeah, no one really cared that the hoop was like eight feet high. We were just happy to see CHI’s finest back to doing what he does best. Read More »

Miami Wins An Instant Classic Against The Lakers; Iman Shumpert Gives The Knicks A Boost In London

Kobe vs. LeBron

Lakers-Heat was Hollywood at its finest. The Heat’s 99-90 win had leading men, a duel as its storyline and a big budget (the Lakers’ payroll). Generally in a big game like Miami-Lakers the question after the game becomes was Team X that impressive or Team Y that bad? Miami’s first four field goals — all huge dunks off sloppy Laker turnovers from Miami’s wing pressure — left no doubt that Miami was just that spectacular at the start — and the finish, too.

Shaq Knows Which Team Runs New York City; Chris Bosh Now Wants To Play Center In Miami

Shaquille O'Neal

Shaquille O’Neal‘s movies make us want to wince (did you know he’s been in seven films?) but it doesn’t mean the big screen is out of his future. And we’re not talking about his cameo in “Grown Ups 2″ he’s got coming up. The Big Aristotle became The Big Projector on Friday when his newly renovated movie theater, the CityPlex 12, he co-owns in downtown Newark opened. Read More »

Kevin Garnett Will Retire As A Celtic; The 1 Thing Tyreke Evans Must Do To Stay With The Kings

Kevin Garnett

We’re not sure if we’ve ever seen so many old stars stay relevant past their primes. Steve Nash is seriously better at 38 than he was at 28. Tim Duncan is still reliable, and still consistently averages 15 and nine. Nas and Jay-Z haven’t fell off yet, and are somehow still popular in this age of terrible dances and forgettable rappers. And even Kobe Bryant is sort of like the Darth Vader of the NBA. Basically, the history books are being re-written before our eyes, and old records are dropping off faster than Green Bay’s bandwagon.

Team USA Wipes Nigeria Off The Map; Miami Doesn’t Need A Veteran Center

Kevin Love and Team USA got Carmelo Anthony

It was never a secret U.S. vs. Nigeria was never going to be close. The betting line grew to 42 points before the game, which seemed like it could be high even for a mismatch like this, the best team in the world against the team making its Olympic debut. First, the Team USA was totally off-mark shooting from the short international three-point line, a trend that looked worse with a pretty sluggish start to the first quarter against Tunisia. Then, you figured Nigeria was going to play inspired in its Olympic debut against the U.S. It turns out the line was ridiculous Read More »
