Player values are officially set in stone now, so it’s time to update the Top 50. There aren’t too many drastic differences, but certainly there are some changes worth noting.

The biggest jump, once again, goes to Anthony Davis, who’s up 18 spots since the preseason edition, and Andre Drummond, who’s up an incredible 25 spots. You’ll notice that I came around on ranking injured players. It still leaves too much up for debate in my mind, but Anthony Davis’s needed presence was the deal breaker. Read More »

Video: Kevin Garnett Runs The Floor And Finishes With Authority

Kevin Garnett, Kenneth Faried

Kevin Garnett proves that he can still lay it down with this big dunk over Kenneth Faried.

We’re less than a month into the 2013-14 NBA season, but the New York Knicks have already seen a year’s worth of negative storylines. They’ve quickly plummeted to the bottom of a bad Atlantic Division; J.R. Smith has been up to his usual antics (a five-game suspension to start the season followed by a $25,000 fine for threatening tweets towards Brandon Jennings); there have been chants calling for the firing of Mike Woodson at recent home games; and Carmelo Anthony accused the team of “not even trying” after the 20-point loss to the Hawks last Saturday night.

20 NBA Players Who Could Beat Up Deebo

The movie Friday, the 1995 stoner flick featuring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, has become a cult classic over the years. I wanted to begin with a nice quote from the movie, but they all read like a Matt Barnes tweet. Anyway, the film surrounds a 16-hour period in which two unemployed bums (Craig and Smokey, played by Cube and Tucker respectively) must pay a local drug dealer $200 or risk facing his wrath.

Curb Your Enthusiasm star and Seinfeld creator Larry David was sitting courtside in Madison Square Garden on Sunday when the Spurs blew out the Knicks by 31 points. His aggrieved expression makes it seem like he’s filming a new scene for Curb, but the Knicks are really just a calamity right now, and it’s hard to smile if you’re a fan. Things might be getting even worse, too. Read More »

Historically, this has been one of the most competitive positions in the entire NBA. The power forward position might not have had the iconic and celebrated figures like Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Magic Johnson but they have more than held their place in history: Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, Elvin Hayes and Kevin McHale, not to mention the recent duo of Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett who are both sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famers.
