The NBA’s Top 20 Centers Right Now

Dwight Howard

So much for that idea of the NBA having run out of quality centers outside of two or three names. You can look at a majority of the league’s teams and give a respectable case as to why those centers could be proclaimed All-Stars. There are so many quality centers in the league. In fact, there are three teams on this list that have two centers within the top 20. The NBA isn’t devoid of centers, they’re actually “hording” them on a few rosters. Read More »

The Top 60 Big Men In Fantasy Basketball

Dwight Howard

While the whole country is gearing up for fantasy football, we here at Dime feel it’s never too early for fantasy basketball draft preparation. We’re in the process of breaking down each position into tiers, continuing in this post with the top spot belonging to the most sought-after free agent in the summer of 2013. Read More »

The 2013-14 Head-to-Head Fantasy Basketball Top 50

Kevin Durant

There’s nothing better than beating down a different opponent every week as opposed to the monotony of rotisserie. All of the trash-talking among friends is fun, but the biggest advantage of head-to-head is that there’s no shame in punting a category. That’s why it doesn’t matter when guys like Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo miss 1,000 free throws, or John Wall and Ricky Rubio clank 1,000 threes. All that ground can be made up elsewhere.

Marc Gasol, The Big Fundamental & The Top 10 Centers In The NBA This Season

Marc Gasol

Times have changed at the center position in today’s NBA. It wasn’t long ago that the best players in the NBA were the centers. Between Olajuwon, Ewing, David Robinson and Shaq, the center position was easily the best position in the league for much of the last 20-25 years. In today’s game, one could argue it’s the least talented position. Read More »

10 Tiers Of The Best NBA Players 25 Years Old Or Younger

Derrick Rose

As much as I enjoy watching LeBron James at the peak of his NBA powers, as much as I enjoy watching the veteran Celtics come together since Rajon Rondo went down, as fun as it is to watch Carmelo Anthony drop 35-plus night after night en-route to his first scoring title, and Chris Paul continuing to be the best point guard of this generation, what makes the NBA so great night in and night out is everyone else.

Kobe Bryant is Superhuman, Saves the Lakers’ Season; The Secret to John Wall’s Run

Kobe Bryant

Steve Blake offensive rebounds. Pau-to-Dwight lobs. Kobe Bryant M-V-P chants reverberating through the arena. With the way the Lakers’ 113-106 win in Portland ended, you would’ve thought all was right for L.A. They had finally held off the hot-shooting Blazers, going on a 17-2 run to start the second half and then an 8-0 run in the middle of the fourth before putting the clamps on Portland for the final five minutes.

The Clippers Outclass The Lakers; Carmelo Anthony Is On The Hottest Scoring Streak Of The NBA Season

Chris Paul

It was fun watching Craig knock Deebo out. And in the ongoing Lakers/Clippers rivalry, it almost feels like that scene is playing out again and again. Los Angeles will always be a Lakers city. Always. But presently, there’s no question which team is best. The Clips answered the call again in yesterday’s matinee, busting up their big brother, 109-95. Read More »

Kenneth Faried

Ranking the NBA from worst to first…

30. Charlotte Bobcats (14-52) Last week: 30, - The Bobcats are pretty well locked in the last spot in the league. That’s good! With another high pick to go along with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Kemba Walker, Charlotte might actually be decent next season. Hopefully. Read More »
