[UPDATED] Breaking News: Washington’s Jordan Crawford Reportedly Traded To Boston

Jordan Crawford

Get ready Boston: Jordan Crawford is about to walk through that door. Crawford, a career 13.4 point-per-game scorer, once said (in all seriousness) that he felt he was the best Jordan to ever play in the NBA. Now he’s going from one of the least respected organizations in the league to one of the most popular. Read More »

Jordan Crawford’s Unreal Buzzer-Beater To Beat Portland

Jordan Crawford

There was so much holiday action yesterday that most probably missed this game-winner from Jordan Crawford. Too bad. A 32-footer on the road to beat a potential playoff team is pretty big. Did you know the Wizards are 5-2 over their last seven games? A small sample size, yes, but after that horrible start to the season, they’re finally playing like a team we thought might contend for the playoffs. Read More »

A 2011 Finals Rematch Goes Into OT; Kevin Durant Does Something He’s Never Done Before

LeBron James

How often do you see it happen: a visiting team takes control in the fourth quarter before squandering a late chance to grab a W, and then end up getting pounded into submission in the extra session? Dallas is feeling the pain now after letting the Heat off the hook in Miami’s 119-109 overtime win. There’s not much to explain from overtime: Miami just ran Dallas over. The real fun was in the fourth quarter. In the final minutes, LeBron (32 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists) found Shane Battier for one of the biggest shots of the night, a corner three. Read More »

Chris Paul Keeps The Clippers’ Streak Alive; The Heat Lose A Head-Scratcher In Detroit

Chris Paul & CP3.VI

Chris Paul wasn’t about to let his team lose its 15-game win streak, not like that. So in Utah on Friday night, down 19 points halfway through the third quarter, CP3 broke out the defibrillator and shocked life back into the Clippers. Why’s that impressive? Well, the 16-game streak is the longest since the Celtics had a 19-gamer in 2008. Two, Salt Lake City is not an easy place to play even in the post-Sloan era and the Clippers struggle there — they’ve gone 20-61 there all-time. Three, mental toughness was not something associated with this franchise until recently — oh, about the time CP3 and Chauncey Billups arrived, to be honest. Read More »

NBA Fantasy Risers & Fallers: 12.21

Brandon Knight

As the first leg of the NBA season comes to a close, player values are starting to fall in place. Of course there are some exceptions, like if some of these players just happened to start off ice cold or riding a hot streak. However, by this time statistics begin to even out. The early hot streaks dissolve, and the underachievers slowly work their way back into the fantasy hierarchy. Here are this week’s top risers and fallers in fantasy basketball. Read More »

LeBron James Throws Up An Insane Stat Line; Brooklyn Blows A Chance To Steal A Win

LeBron James & The Nike Hyperdunk+

Sometimes we wish the NBA was more like the NFL. In football, you must bring your best effort or you’ll be left looking like Mark Sanchez on Monday Night Football, getting your skills compared to Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite. Read More »

LeBron, The Heat Lose To The NBA’s Worst Team; New Orleans Has A Terrible New Team Name

LeBron James

LeBron James dropped a ridiculous triple-double last night (26 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists) but no one’s going to remember him carving up the Wizards. They’ll remember that with about 20 seconds left, he missed a wide-open wing triple that could’ve potentially been a game-winner. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: The Week’s Best Pickups (11.19)

Jason Richardson

FRESH PICKINGS: Jason Richardson (64 percent owned in Yahoo, 39 percent owned in ESPN) Although he is an old 31 years old with a recent history of knee problems, the trusty vet has been coming on strong after missing four games with an ankle sprain. Over his last four, Richardson is averaging 16.3 points with 3.6 treys, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals. He may not be the most reliable over the long haul, but when healthy, J-Rich can give you the upper hand in rebound and block totals with his shooting guard eligibility. Read More »

New York Can’t Be Stopped; Kyrie Irving Beats Chris Paul In L.A.

J.R. Smith

Is it time we start taking New York seriously? We’ll have to wait until Amar’e Stoudemire comes back from his latest knee setback, and Carmelo Anthony gets pushed back to the three to see if this level of play holds up. But what else can we say? ‘Melo (21 points last night) has looked like he’s ready to finally embrace basic basketball principles like rebounding, defending and not holding the ball every time you touch it, and New York is getting contributions from everyone.

Video: Washington’s Top 10 Plays From Last Season

John Wall

Okay, so Nick Young and JaVale McGee aren’t in Washington anymore and they accounted for like half of this list. But last year, the Wizards were still one of the most exciting terrible teams we’ve seen in a while. They should produce more wins this season now that they added Nene for a full year, as well as players like Emeka Okafor, Trevor Ariza and Bradley Beal. But hopefully, they don’t forget about the highlights. Read More »
