The 10 Most Exciting Teams In NBA History

Sacramento Kings

As an NBA fan, there is nothing worse than watching a boring basketball game. Every few years we get lucky to witness a team that displays an absurd amount of showmanship on the court; a current example is “The Lob City” Clippers. In a sport that is played at a fast pace, we have seen teams throughout the years elevating the excitement on the court. I counted down the most exciting teams in NBA history. Read More »

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 »

The 15 Best Shooting Duos In NBA History

Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry

It’s rare when you can have two extremely gifted shooters on your team. The game just flows easier when you have multiple guys that can knock down shots from the stripe. After their breakout performances in last year’s playoffs, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (also known as “The Splash Brothers”) received the ultimate praise from their head coach Mark Jackson when he said in the Western Conference Semifinals last May, “I said I’ve got the greatest shooting backcourt that’s ever played the game.” Read More »

Some veteran players get angsty towards the end of their careers for the one thing that’s eluded them since they came into the league: a championship ring. Whether it’s the bad luck of suffering through a string of awful teams, or the ball not bouncing right in the postseason, some players just never get over that final hurdle for a Larry O’Brien trophy. That’s why some will go ring chasing. Read More »

Why Don Nelson Deserved To Be In The Basketball Hall Of Fame

Don Nelson

Why is Don Nelson in the Hall of Fame if he never even coached a team to the NBA Finals?

Donald Arvid Nelson was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. this past Friday. As with all inductions over the last few years, there’s a surrounding debate (ameliorated by the communal effect of technology) about the legitimacy of an inductee’s inclusion. Read More »

Chris Webber & Nike Basketball’s ‘Barbershop’ Campaign

Chris Webber

If you’ve been watching NBA TV at all this summer – and I’m sure you have if you’re like me – you must’ve noticed how often they play Game 3 from the 1994 first round series between Phoenix and Golden State. I’ve seen parts of that game probably four or five times. It was Chris Webber‘s first taste of the postseason and one of the final bites in the prime of Charles Barkley‘s career. C-Webb seemed at times, for all of his Fab Five-ness, a respectful young kid. But he crossed the line with his infamous regular season dunk over the reigning MVP. You know the one: catch it on the break, flick it around the back for no reason other than because he can, and then shove the ball down Barkley’s throat after stepping off his Flight No. 4.
