The Greatest Matt Bonner Tattoo Of All Time (Pic)

Matt Bonner, Kevin Durant

Spurs reserve forward Matt Bonner does not light up the stat sheet, and barely sees run if Gregg Popovich thinks he’ll get taken advantage of on the defensive end. But he’s easily the best ginger in the NBA after Brian Scalabrine‘s retirement, and the “Red Mamba” has a huge fan as was recently discovered on Twitter. Read More »

While Dime has done stories on both the best shooters in the NBA and the players with the deepest range, we’ve never focused solely on the three-pointer. The adoption of the three-point line in 1979 dramatically changed the future of the NBA. Would Adam Morrison have even been considered a top 10 pick had this special skill not served a purpose? (Who honestly knows with MJ?) Read More »

The NBA’s 20 Best Role Players

Andrei Kirilenko

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 »

The Winners & Losers Of NBA All-Star Saturday Night

Terrence Ross

NBA All-Star Saturday Night’s signature events are, without question, the Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Dime Magazine was in Houston to check out the action live and have grades on the performances of each participant in both events (we can’t be the only other ones who nearly slept through the Shooting Stars and the Skills Competition).
