It’s always fun when secondary players in a big series are the ones doing the most talking, isn’t it? Check out the back and forth between Kenyon Martin and Jason Terry that started in the post-game wake of Game 4. When asked about J.R. Smith‘s return, Terry responded with, “I don’t care if Patrick Ewing comes back for them. We’re going to treat it like a Game 7.”
Enter Kenyon Martin. Read More »
We received an email from the Portland Trail Blazers and the NBA earlier tonight about a news conference scheduled for Wednesday afternoon (3:30 PT) that promises a “major announcement.” Read More »
You will be hard-pressed to find a living soul pleased with the way things went in Laker Land this season, especially when it comes to all things Dwight Howard.
Some close to the organization are more vocal than others in their criticism and displeasure. Arguably the loudest voice all season has belonged to Magic Johnson, who has pulled few punches, frequently ripping the front office and players alike. Last night, Dwight was the focus of a mini Twitter rant from Magic after Howard was booted in the third quarter of an elimination game: Read More »
The words the basketball world has been waiting to hear for almost a year now just came down: “Derrick Rose is cleared to play.” So says his doctor, clearing the way for Derrick to officially return to an NBA floor.
BUT, not so fast. There’s still a hurdle in the way of Rose resuming his career, and it’s something that multiple Dime readers have been locked in on for weeks. Read More »
This ACL plague has gone beyond a ridiculous place; it’s become terrifying. It seems like another ballplayer is succumbing to the most dreaded of knee injuries every day and it’s not letting up. We’re not talking middle-aged guys at the Y here, either – it’s getting the best athletes in the world at a frightening clip.
Where do you even begin with what happened after the Lakers held on to beat the Nets in Brooklyn last night? There was probably as much drama as you can possibly have after getting a W.
First up, news of Pau Gasol’s significant injury. Read More »
Doc Rivers was given the Rajon Rondo torn ACL injury news before yesterday’s game against the Miami Heat and kept it to himself (knowing even before Rajon found out). In a world of Twitter and insta-news though, by the end of the game, the only people who didn’t know about Rondo’s injury were Rajon’s Celtics teammates.
Paul Pierce found out on the court seconds after his team’s exhilarating win from Doris Burke, who was clearly itching to be the first to tell Pierce (and be on camera doing so). You can see from the video that Pierce is clearly in shock and isn’t really able to process the information right away that in terms of potential Celtics’ championships, his season is over.

A super-entertaining article posted on the L.A. Times web site last night by writer Mike Bresnahan describes a Lakers team meeting held before yesterday’s shootaround in Memphis, where the “guys went at each other a little bit.”
The picture he paints sums up the Lakers circus – it’s pretty much exactly how you would envision it to be: Read More »
Yesterday, people went nuts when we posted the news that Kobe Bryant had declared himself the best 1-on-1 player ever. Most people immediately reacted like that was some sort of outrageous, off-the-wall claim, which is pretty ridiculous to me, but whatever.
Part of the evidence that Kobe presented as he was running down the names of guys who can’t or couldn’t beat him was a story about how he destroyed Tracy McGrady during an adidas trip to Germany back in the day. Problem is, T-Mac says it never happened. Read More »
