The 2014 NBA Draft has seen an enormous amount of hype, if it yields anything less than three or four future stars, it will be considered a disappointment.

Like we were campaigning for office, the heated debates we get swept up in concerning the greatest NBA players of all time have become as much a part of our lives as the game themselves.

That’s only been amplified with the career of LeBron James cresting at its highest point, as well as Kevin Durant earning the recognition of challenging for MVP. As long as those two continue to play at a Hall of Fame-bound level, they’ll be the subject of abject criticism and have their careers picked apart. Read More »

Horace Grant Discusses Shaq, Kobe, Michael Jordan, Penny & More

Horace Grant

Some of our readers might not be old enough to remember just how important Horace Grant was to the first Bulls 3-peat, and how the Orlando Magic team he joined before the 1995-96 season eliminated Michael Jordan and the Bulls from the playoffs when MJ had first come back from baseball. Grant also played with Anfernee Hardaway, Kobe Bryant and of course Shaq — on both the Magic and Lakers. With all his experience being surrounded by some of the best players of the late 1980s, 1990s and early millennium, you just know his tête-à-tête with Bill Simmons for Grantland is gonna hit an anecdotal apex.

Whether it was watching Will Smith in the Fresh Prince, Biggie and Tupac going at it for rap supremacy, or MJ dominating the game, the ’90s impact on our society is still very present. Read More »
