J.J. Redick

The NBA regular season, at least for the teams that hold visions of championships, is just an 82-session practice for the playoffs. So rather than worry about who is the unofficial “best” or “worst” team in the League right now, let’s look at which team is most equipped for the truly important games. Read More »

NBA Fantasy Basketball: Winners & Losers Of The Trade Deadline

J.J. Redick

The NBA trade deadline can make or break your fantasy team. Deadline deals not only change the value of existing fantasy studs, but also rearranges depth charts, opening the door for tons of players sitting on the waiver wire. I was a little disappointed by this year’s deadline, which was one of the slower ones in recent memory, but it still opened the door for many. Read More »

As we wrote in Smack over the weekend, Saturday night’s Dallas/Houston tilt was perhaps the most entertaining game of the season. Outside of O.J. Mayo‘s dagger threes in the fourth quarter, the most memorable highlight came from Dahntay Jones, who crammed a facial on Patrick Patterson‘s dome off a feed from Juice. Read More »

Danny Granger

Are they for real? We guess we could’ve said that about either one of the teams taking the floor in Indiana last night. The Pacers beheaded the Heat by 15, and Miami has now lost two in a row by double figures, and are just 8-6 since the All-Star break. Title contenders? They need to get their heads out of the sand first. Then on the other side, the Pacers made a statement: Don’t overlook us. They almost had Miami calling for the mercy rule on the boards, destroying them 49-33. Read More »
