There’s A Celtics Voting Board To Decide The Winner In A Kris Humphries Rajon Rondo Fight

Rajon Rondo

Ever since Kris Humphries joined the Celtics as part of the blockbuster trade sending Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn, we’ve been wondering about the perceived beef between Rajon Rondo and Humphries after last fall. We’re not the only ones it seems since their teammates have started a voting board to answer who would win if they ever fought again. Read More »

The Best $9 Million The Brooklyn Nets Ever Spent

Josh Childress

We all know the Nets made moves this summer — both literally and figuratively. Even those who paid just minimal attention are aware of the Joe Johnson acquisition, the re-signings of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace, and the big move to Brooklyn. What those who paid just minimal attention may not have noticed, however, is what the Nets were able to do between July 11th and September 11th. Read More »

Jason Terry’s Top 5 Plays As A Maverick

Now that Jason Terry’s time with the Dallas Mavericks is reportedly coming to a close, we thought we would recall his best plays as a Maverick. Even though Dirk was the key cog in the Dallas wheel, Terry was always there, providing a spark off the bench and relieving some of the scoring pressure. There’s no doubt there were many great plays during his eight-year run with the Mavs, as he was a key ingredient in Dallas’ 2006 Finals squad and 2011 championship team. But we’ve narrowed it down to five, so check them out as we count them down. Read More »

Derrick Rose: “We Have A Legit Chance To Win Multiple Championships”

Derrick Rose

No one can accuse Derrick Rose of lacking self-confidence. “Why can’t I be the MVP of the league,” Rose famously asked last September, before becoming the youngest MVP in NBA history last season. This year, he’s still not concerned with anybody else, and is now talking about bringing multiple championships to his hometown. Read More »

Dime’s NBA Preseason Awards For The Season That Might Not Exist

Blake Griffin

One of things we all around the Dime office miss most about this time of year is the hype. It draws attention, gets people talking and gets people watching. It especially sucks this time because just a year ago, we were consumed by hype. Last season, everyone assumed Kevin Durant would run away with the MVP. He didn’t. Many assumed the Heat would win close to 70 games (or perhaps more). They didn’t. There were only a handful of fans who thought Blake Griffin would do the things he did – terrorize NBA rims across the country and takeover Sportscenter himself. He actually did. Since the owners are running out on the tab, and the players are left bickering amongst themselves over whether to give 15 percent or 20 percent, we now have no hype. Read More »

NBA Fantasy Team Analysis: The Chicago Bulls

Derrick Rose

Next up for fantasy basketball discussion: the Chicago Bulls. There’s a good deal to like here from a fantasy perspective – a first-round stud, some decent value in the middle rounds and a few fill-in guys to watch on the waiver wire when need be. Without too many free agents for the Bulls, fantasy owners shouldn’t expect too many things to change in the upcoming season. But if Brian Scalabrine isn’t re-signed, all bets are off. Read More »

Why The Bulls Should Re-Sign Jamal Crawford

Jamal Crawford

The most common criticism that people have had against the Bulls this season has been their lack of a true scorer outside of Derrick Rose. Never was that more evident than in the last five minutes of regulation and overtime of Game 4, when Rose essentially went one-on-one with a much bigger LeBron James because nobody else on his team could create any shots without his help. The most glaring weakness is at the two guard spot, where the Bulls currently have a flawed three-man rotation there. Read More »

Dreams Money Can Buy

LeBron James

Jordanesque? That’s what a lot are saying. LeBron James (35 points) contributed all over the court in Miami’s 101-93 Game 4 win. This wasn’t about winning. It was merely surviving, making it through an overtime game where Wade didn’t play well and the Bulls refused to die. This was a test of wills, and earlier this season who would’ve ever guessed LeBron would win that game? Read More »
