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 »

Steve Nash Jilts Everyone For The Lakers; Another Frenchman’s Out For The Olympics

Steve Nash

Fast, and without looking: Who has been the best point guard to play alongside Kobe Bryant ? Time’s up: It’s 38-year-old Steve Nash, and he’s yet to play a minute with the Black Mamba. Oh, but that will change soon. That’s right, Nash is going to be a Laker after agreeing to a sign-and-trade with Phoenix for $25 million on Wednesday. Almost no one was talking about the Lakers being in Nash’s mix of suitors, but Mitch Kupchak pulled the latest in a series moves that have stunned the NBA so far in free agency’s moratorium.

Deron Williams Stays With Nets; Jason Terry Signs With Boston

Deron Williams, Team USA

A picture can say a thousands words. But in some cases, all you need is six, and people all over the 30-mile radius in the Northeast United States that constitutes the range of the only Nets fans in the world were hyped after Deron Williams took to Twitter last night. His words, “Made a very difficult decision today …” were followed by a picture of the Nets logo. The contract will include $98 million over five years, a chance to pair with Joe Johnson and possibly Dwight Howard and his binky, as well as a lifetime supply of Mikhail Prokhorov‘s angry Russian bodyguards (okay that probably wasn’t in the deal). Why’d he spurn his hometown contenders? More money (Dallas could only offer $75 million over four years), and Williams has also been impressed with what Brooklyn has done so far this summer. They’ve re-signed Gerald Wallace, added Joe Johnson and Reggie Evans, and reached a verbal agreement with talented Bosnian stretch forward Mirza Teletovic. Read More »

Daily Fantasy Basketball Diagnosis: 4.4

LeBron James

Beast of the Night: LeBron James put up 41 points, six rebounds, four assists, three steals, a block and a three-pointer last night in a start at shooting guard for the Heat. He shot 60 percent (15-25) from the floor and 77 percent (10-13) from the free-throw line, and had four turnovers. James’ recent slip in production dropped him to No. 2 overall in fantasy basketball, but he’s still a monster. Read More »

Stock Rising: Landry Fields

Landry Fields

He wasn’t made for this, not originally. The glitz, the fame, Spike Lee sitting courtside rocking his jersey on a nightly basis. None of this was supposed to be in Landry Fields‘ wheelhouse. That is, until he made the nation take notice of just how ready he really is.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Dime #68

Does anyone else find it strange that the hottest months for basketball take place during the coldest months in America? All-Star Weekend. Trade Deadline. March Madness.

While tertiary fans may not start paying attention to the NBA or NCAA until after the BCS National Championship or Super Bowl are over, us diehards are waiting, ready to tell them everything they missed.
