Teams Have More Twitter Fun With #NBAMovies

Joel Embiid, Beetle Juice

A refreshingly large number of NBA teams have upped their Twitter ante recently, adding photoshops, memes, and general engagement to common posts of team updates and franchise promotions. Many killed it earlier this summer with #NBASitcoms, an amusing exercise in combining the names of players and beloved television shows. It’s seemed inevitable in the interim that #NBAMovies was soon to follow, and today teams finally made good on that certainty. Read More »

DeMar DeRozan, Kyle Singler

The Raptors clinched the Atlantic Division on Sunday after going into Detroit to defeat the Pistons, 116-107. They’re in a contest with the Bulls for the 3-seed, but for the moment they should savor their rapid turnaround this year under choach Dwane Casey and the blossoming play of DeMar DeRozan. We should savor Double D’s smash on Kyle Singler. Read More »

GIF: Klay Thompson Smashes On Kyle Singler

Klay Thompson, Kyle Singler

We’re not gonna lie, this dunk didn’t blow us away as much as it did some NBA people. Klay Thompson is a great player. He’s long, adroit shooting the ball — obviously, as one-half of the Splash Brothers — and he knows to defer to Steph unless he’s feeling it. Klay’s also a terrific perimeter defender, able to hassle small forwards and bigger guards with his length and quick feet. What he is not, however, is an athletic marvel. But he timed his jump before his flush on Detroit’s Kyle Singler really well Monday night, and Singler’s momentum did carry him into the first row of spectators behind the basket. Read More »

The Top 10 NBA Rookie Of The Year Candidates: Vol. 2

Damian Lillard

The rookie race is heating up as Anthony Davis made his return this week. Damian Lillard is still the top gun, but a healthy Davis is a force to be reckoned with. As each week goes by, it’s looking more and more like the top 10 is separated into two halves. The top half will get extremely competitive in the oncoming weeks. Bradley Beal proved that he’s still a top rookie, and when Dion Waiters makes his return, his running mate Kyrie Irving will be right there to assist him. Read More »
