NBA’s 20 Most Overpaid Players

Joe Johnson

It took a bitter, drawn-out battle that interrupted the 2011-12 season in order to stop front offices from blowing all of their money on a single player, and to prevent further careless spending. Before then, however, bad contracts were prevalent: $100 million deals to anyone that could be considered an All-Star and role players that wound up being traded or waived two years later after signing a $50 million deal.

Raptors Wing Landry Fields Ruins His Ankle-Breaking Move By Missing The Dunk

Landry Fields

Landry Fields had an opportunity to stick it to his former team when the Raptors welcomed the Knicks to town on Friday night. Except, Fields was 0-for-6 from the field and 0-for-3 from behind the arc in 20 minutes. Even with such a horrendous shooting performance, he still found time to embarrass rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. Read More »

The Nuggets Contain The Thunder In OT; The Kings Are One Hurdle Away From Moving To Seattle

Kenneth Faried

Denver had an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter and all looked good on the edge of the Rocky Mountains in the Nuggets’ drive to knock-off league-best Oklahoma City. Kevin Durant (37 points, seven boards and eight assists on 7-of-20 shooting) and Russell Westbrook (36 points, 10-of-26 shooting) were being contained via constant harassment, as much as the superstar tandem can be anyway. The Nugs looked like they were about to make amends after a sloppy loss in OKC last week. These two always make for great games and Denver’s eventual 121-118 win in OT was one of the very best, with two endings that were crazy. Read More »

There are already inklings from management, trickling out of Bay Area reports, that Steph Curry‘s rolled right ankle Friday night is not as serious as it looks. But don’t let out that breath all the way, Warriors fans, because if he can get his ankle rolled at a standstill by someone stepping on it, this could happen all the time. Read More »

Jeremy Lin

One of the biggest symbols of the 2011-12 NBA season was the couch. When Jeremy Lin went from anonymous to world-famous in about 10 days, everyone wanted to know the original story behind such a leap. Enter the couch that became part of NBA lore. And now, about eight months later, watch it as it fades into history. Read More »

Believe it or not, there were some other significant moves this offseason than what “SportsCenter” would lead you to believe. Steve Nash and Dwight Howard to the Lakers, Deron Williams signing with the Nets and Joe Johnson joining him and even Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan re-signing with the C’s and Spurs, respectively, were stories that we heard about all summer long. As we close in on the 2012-2013 season, it’s time to take a look back at 10 moves that didn’t get enough notice this offseason. Read More »

Video: The Knicks Top 10 Plays From Last Season

J.R. Smith

At worst, the Knicks will at least look different from last year. If you hadn’t heard, they’re getting new uniforms. Other than that, the goal should be to win a playoff series, because realistically, they’re not better than Boston or Miami. We keep talking about how New York has a foundation – they have the star players you need. But eventually, those stars need to bring it. At least in terms of highlights, they brought it last year.

Joe Johnson Says Nets ‘Definitely’ Better Than Knicks; New York Also Losing Jeremy Lin?

Joe Johnson

GM Billy King is calling them “the best backcourt in the NBA.” We’re calling them a probable playoff team. Joe Johnson just calls them “definitely” better than the Knicks. The venue: Borough Hall. Who: about 1,000 screaming fans. What: a rap cypher. Okay, so the last part isn’t really true. But that’s what it felt like. Someone should’ve just given Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz a mic because the dude was throwing more haymakers at the crosstown “rivals” than Eminem on “The Sauce.” At the rally to celebrate the new stars of Brooklyn, Markowitz instead took the chance to say: “For nearly 40 years the Manhattan Knicks have shown they can’t bring a championship to New York, so it’s going to take the Brooklyn Nets to get the job done.

The Top 5 Worst Free Agent Deals Of The 2012 Offseason Thus Far

Gerald Wallace

The last NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement hoped to curtail rampant spending by the owners – they had to be protected from themselves, which seemingly contradicts their self-appointed titles of “businessmen.” Of course, nothing has changed. So with that, we bring you the worst of the worst in this merry NBA free agent season. Here’s our top five worst contracts thus far, as we raise our glasses to many, many more to come. Read More »
