Yes, DeAndre Jordan was 1-for-5 from the free throw line on Sunday during the inverted Los Angeles matchup between the Clippers and Lakers. Yes, he’s only shooting 44 percent from the free throw line this year. But, holy hell, he’s leading the league in rebounding at 13.8 per game, and he was 5-of-6 from the field yesterday, including a filthy offensive rebound over Jordan Hill, which he then smashed on back on Hill’s face while drawing the foul.

Behind every great team, the superstars and the dynasties, are the guys that the average fans don’t know about. Regardless of the amount of talent at the top of the roster, coaches are forced to look for production from role players on a nightly basis. While the average fan may not realize these players exist, their impact, while consistently failing to show up in the box scores, is not disregarded by teammates or coaches. Read More »

Disrespect Dunk Deathmatch: Anderson Varejao Vs. Blake Griffin

We joke around with the tag “Dunk Deathmatch” here every now and then but on these two dunks from Tuesday night, seriously, Jordan Hill and Marco Belinelli were lucky to escape without an injury. Hill missed out on being hit in the face from Anderson Varejao‘s nasty right-handed dunk in Cleveland, a dunk nasty enough to take away the play of the game title from Kyrie or Kobe’s feats.

The Questions Every Western Conference Team Needs Answered This Preseason

Jordan Hill

Preseason is when teams want to work through mistakes and identify the most pressing issues. Camps have now given way to games, which offer a different level of looking at a team’s identity. It would be asking for the impossible to have every problem identified, let alone remedied, by the end of October; the best-case scenario is to simply not carry too many from the start into the season. What should every team be asking itself during the preseason? We’ve got you covered. Today, we look at the Western Conference. Read More »

Derrick Rose Says He’ll Be Back; New Details In Dwight Howard Trade Talks

Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose believes in the process. In fact, he says “My biggest concern is don’t worry about me. I know I’m going to be all right” (that doesn’t really make sense). The fallen Chicago star took to YouTube yesterday to provide a rare update for his fans on the status of his injury. Of course, reports say his knee is ahead of schedule, but what did you really expect to hear? Most are saying Rose won’t be ready anytime before the turn of the new year, and we sincerely hope the Bulls take their time with him. They aren’t winning the title next year, and we’re not trying to see another Gilbert Arenas instance go down, where it felt like every comeback from injury was rushed. Read More »
