8 Keys To Watch For In The NBA Playoffs This Weekend

Manu Ginobili

The NBA postseason is upon us and it should be a great one. The Western Conference has three can’t-miss first-round series, while the elite teams in the East look to get by some of the new faces in the playoffs.

Who’s In? Who’s Out? Breaking Down The Western Conference Playoff Race

Stephen Curry

The 15 Most Lopsided Trades In NBA History

Joe Johnson

The trade deadline truly brings out the worst in desperate franchises looking to make a hasty deal. The main facilitator behind huge deals made at the deadline is the fact that the main player the deal is surrounding may leave during free agency, leaving the team he plays for with nothing other than an open roster spot. Rather than risk that, teams will instead pull the trigger and trade their star player for what usually turns out to be a couple of draft picks, aging veterans or unproven players. Read More »

Marc Gasol, Tyson Chandler, Zach Randolph

The Grizzlies defeated the visiting Knicks last night, 98-93, and it was a close game between two teams that need to turn things around in the second half of the season if they’re going to have any chance of making the playoffs this year. The Grizzlies have answered the call to improve, recently, going 15-4 since Marc Gasol returned from a sprained MCL.

The 10 Best Passing Centers In The NBA

Joakim Noah

The center position is becoming a role that emphasizes versatility. The art of passing is a beautiful concept in the sport, but when executed appropriately by centers, it is a strength that should not be overlooked. Superstars like Bill Walton and Chris Webber–even though he normally manned the four-spot–exemplified the effective passing center, and their offenses instantly became more dangerous because of this ability.

Video: The Amazing James Johnson & His Putback Slam

James Johnson, Mo Williams

Grizzlies power forward James Johnson has been astounding for Memphis since getting called up from the D-League Rio Grande Valley Vipers in December. The former No. 16 pick by the Bulls in 2009 had floated around the fringes of the league since disappointing in Chicago, but he’s got the highest net rating for any Grizzlies player that’s logged more than 500 minutes. His putback dunk on the Blazers illustrates what an intriguing player he’s become for Memphis. Read More »

The NBA’s 10 Most Underachieving Teams

Rudy Gay

There’s a clear difference in a team that’s attempting to tank and a team that is flat out bad. There are teams that are constructed to be bad. Take the Philadelphia 76ers for example.

The 15 Best Second Options In The NBA

Russell Westbrook, Iman Shumpert

If there’s one thing to be learned about the NBA, it’s that a championship can’t be won on the back of one player. How obvious was this last season in the playoffs when Russell Westbrook was injured and the Thunder relied completely on Kevin Durant isolations? Even with Durant being one of the top three players in the league, he couldn’t will a team to a playoff series victory by himself. Read More »
