There surely isn’t room on Team USA’s 12-man FIBA World Cup roster for both Kyle Korver and Klay Thompson. The spot for which they’re vying on the National Team is that of designated sharpshooter, and there’s only one up for grabs. To help managing director Jerry Colangelo, coach Mike Krzyzewski, and legions of basketball fans across the country make the unenviable choice between them, Korver and Thompson got right to the point at a recent practice, going around the world in a two-man three-point shooting contest.

Noted Rim Protector, Kyle Korver, Swats Roy Hibbert

Kyle Korver, Roy Hibbert

No one will ever accuse Kyle Korver of being a rim protector. That was obviously a joke. But the 6-7 Creighton grad isn’t just a three-point specialist. Well, he is, and he does it better than anyone else in the league, but he showed some defensive tenacity against an actual rim protector during Atlanta’s surprising Game 1 performance in Indiana on Saturday.

2013-14 Fantasy Basketball All-Value Team

Isaiah Thomas

We saw many fantasy leagues this season where Isaiah Thomas wasn’t even drafted. Then there were some others where he spent weeks on the free agent list. Sacramento’s lead guard started the year as a backup before eventually earning all of the minutes after Greivis Vasquez was traded, and by that point, if you were lucky enough to have him, you reaped some huge benefits.

Kyle Korver, Derrick Favors

Kyle Korver‘s NBA record for consecutive games with a three-pointer ended at 127 on March 5, but his shooting has only continued to get better. After a blistering opening few months, Korver’s accuracy from the field has somehow gotten even better, and this might go down as the single greatest shooting season over the last 32 years.

6 Players That Need To Be In NBA’s Three-Point Shootout

Kyle Korver

With the Slam Dunk Contest losing so much steam over the past few years, the Three-Point Shootout may just be the marquee competition of NBA All-Star Weekend’s Saturday night festivities. Consider that as an insult to how watered down and commercial the dunk contest has been, as well as a compliment to how many elite shooters there are in today’s game. With so much of an emphasis being put on the three-point line when teams run their offense, having numerous three-point threats is a necessity to thrive in today’s game. 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 »

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (11.22)

Derrick Rose

BUY LOW DERRICK ROSE, Chicago Bulls The slow start after a season off from ACL surgery had to be expected, but a hamstring and neck injury combined with some turf toe that Rose admitted has been bothering him since 2012 has those that invested a first rounder in the former MVP in full-out panic mode. That’s why it’s the perfect time to strike a deal. Averaging only 15.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists, Rose isn’t coming close to reaching expectations, but if you’re willing to sit and wait for production, snag him from someone who isn’t.
