The Bobcats have valiantly attempted to stay with the Heat in Game 1 this afternoon, but the tweaked plantar fascia of Al Jefferson has limited his mobility, and the Heat have a double-digit lead in the fourth. None of that changes the unexpected Josh McRoberts jam he threw down on Chris Andersen. Read More »

Video: Josh McRoberts Behind-The-Back Cross-Court Pass For The Triple

Josh McRoberts, Spencer Hawes

The tussled tresses of Josh McRoberts didn’t used to be something that drew your eyes to the 6-10 forward. He had a buzz cut coming out of coach K’s system at Duke in 2007, and his minutes — since coming over to Charlotte from Orlando last season — have grown almost as much as his hair. So far this season, he’s started every game for the ‘Cats despite so-so production. Despite his mediocre numbers, McRoberts has game, and he showed off a nifty behind-the-back pass tonight during Charlotte’s 102-91 win over the visiting Cavs. Read More »

Video: Josh McRoberts’ Earth-Bound Dunk On Andrew Bogut

Josh McRoberts, Jordan Crawford

Most would find the inclusion of Josh McRoberts in this year’s Dunk Contest to be annoying. The 6-10 Bobcats forward isn’t known as a high-flyer and he’s more effective as a lefty stretch power forward — like a contemporary Caucasian Sam Perkins. But the hairdo straight from a shakedown street stroll at a Phish show, actually scored over a 30-inch vertical in the 2008 pre-draft combine. So why does it seem like his dunk over Andrew Bogut Tuesday night barely inched off the ground? Read More »

For only a half season’s worth of basketball, the NBA’s top athletes have put together a strong resume and large volume of impressive slams, so much so that we had to list 100 of them. There weren’t any that had to be forced on, either, to complete the list. No, there were plenty of worthy candidates to make this list go beyond the threshold of 100. Read More »

The NBA’s 30 Biggest Unsung Heroes

Andray Blatche

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 »

The Thunder were dealt a severe blow in their attempt to get back to the NBA Finals when Russell Westbrook underwent surgery today to alleviate more swelling issues in the same knee where he tore a lateral meniscus in last season’s playoffs. Despite the loss of their All-Star point guard, they got a win in Charlotte on Friday night, 89-85, and Serge Ibaka again showed why he’s one of the best defensive big men in the entire league.

Kyrie Irving Destroys The NBA’s Best Team; Indiana Knocks Off No. 1 Michigan

Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving took care of his All-Star case a long time ago. So last night, he spent the final three minutes of Cleveland’s five-point win over the Thunder doing other things, like letting the world know he’s coming for that “point god” spot. With CP still out, Uncle Drew is the best lead guard playing right now, and he cooked the Thunder for 13 of his game-high 35 points in the final 2:52. Read More »
