Why The Champion Spurs Are Impossible To Duplicate

Tim Duncan

The 2013-2014 NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs made you believe. In experience, in persistence, in togetherness, in quality depth, in pounding the rock, in the value of adhering to a strict set of organizational ideals from top-to-bottom. More than anything, these Spurs just made you believe in basketball. Not just any brand of basketball, either, but this amazing game as it was explicitly meant to be played. There‚Äôs never been anything like it, and unless they can somehow repeat it over the next couple years, there never will be again. Read More »

6 Players That Need To Be In NBA’s Three-Point Shootout

Kyle Korver

With the Slam Dunk Contest losing so much steam over the past few years, the Three-Point Shootout may just be the marquee competition of NBA All-Star Weekend’s Saturday night festivities. Consider that as an insult to how watered down and commercial the dunk contest has been, as well as a compliment to how many elite shooters there are in today’s game.

Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

The NBA is a state of repair.

No, the games and the talent on the court are perfectly fine, exemplary actually, but the disparity of quality between the East and West and there being only five teams capable of winning a title this year is something that needs to be addressed.

It is historic how poor the Eastern Conference is right now, which is leading to a two-team race to the top between the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat.

With only three teams remaining in the NBA Playoffs, it means a few “contenders” have already been eliminated from title contention. The offseason is the time for these teams to retool to prepare for deeper runs next season. The Chicago Bulls had a season that defied almost everyone’s expectations — everyone outside of the Bulls organization that is.

Nate Robinson

With Marco Belinelli playing out of his mind, and the rest of the Bulls desperate for a win, the Nets leaned on an unlikely source late to take Game 6 and tie the series up, 95-92. Andray Blatche had just 10 points and seven boards, but he made them count, scoring the team’s final five points on three (of four) free throws and a wild runner high off the glass. Read More »
