It’s Gerald Green week in the most recent edition of the top ten dunks over the past seven days.

It seems as if the All-Star Game only inspired players to throw down dunks that were far more vicious and creative than anything we saw in the first half of the season. Right out of the gate after the All-Star break, observers have been subject to some of the league’s best posters and alley-oops, whether they’re done by two players or only one, to start off the second half of the season.

It’s never too early to begin thinking about the playoffs.

Sure, the regular season has been great so far, if you’re ignoring that one of the conferences currently has three teams with a winning record, but that doesn’t mean we can’t already begin thinking about the potential the playoffs have in store for us. A lot can happen in those seven games. It can make or break a franchise, sending one into the vaults of the elite and the other into a downward spiral that may result in the breakup of the team. It can also make or break a player, essentially putting their entire legacy on the line if that player’s influence on the team is that great. Read More »

The movie Friday, the 1995 stoner flick featuring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, has become a cult classic over the years. I wanted to begin with a nice quote from the movie, but they all read like a Matt Barnes tweet.

It feels rare when NBA players hold themselves accountable for their actions in such a direct way. While Twitter exposed Matt Barnesvortex of emotions last night following his ejection from the Thunder-Clippers matchup at Staples Center, it also provided a palliative medium for him to apologize and take ownership of his mistake.

Matt Barnes didn’t score any points tonight, both in the basketball game between the Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder, or with his teammates. After getting into the usual faux bravado shoving match with Serge Ibaka after Ibaka had become entangled with Blake Griffin, Barnes was ejected.

The NBA is a league dominated by stars. However, some of the most important guys are the secondary players, the ones who do the little things that help their team win. Most of the guys on this list are limited in some areas – and that is why they are role players. There are no scoring title winners or All-NBA players on this list – just guys who have a well-defined role who put the success of the team far above their own. Read More »
