The r/NBA community on reddit is composed of a fantastic group of readers and contributors. It’s a must-read almost daily for the basketball minutiae they share every day. They’re also a great place for NBA people — Daryl Morey being one — to stop by and chat with redditors. Recently a pair of Phoenix Suns bagllboys stopped by for an AMA (ask me anything), and they had some interesting — though not surprising — things to say about the Spurs’ odor. Read More »

The Suns, after gaining the lead in the fourth quarter last night, eventually fell to the Grizzlies, 97-91, for the fourth time this season, eliminating them from playoff contention and bringing to a close one of the more remarkable runs in NBA history. Before the season, everyone (and we do mean everyone) thought Phoenix was headed for one of the worst records in the league as they competed for the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes. Instead, they’re everybody’s favorite League Pass team, and who should have made the playoffs in a more perfect world. Read More »

Finally, at long last, the real season begins. But that doesn’t mean we can’t stop, look back, and appreciate the highlights and events that captivated us and stole our attention during the 2013-14 season. We’ve been treated to some great games, as recently as Sunday’s Golden State-Portland affair, and some highlights that may have been forgotten because of all the entertaining games we’ve witnessed this year.

We’re still recovering from a fever dream we had after peeking at a hypothetical Conference-free playoff structure for the playoffs this year. But even with the Conference separation in place, there are plenty of questions as we come up on the final three nights of NBA action during the 2013-14 regular season. The Suns and Grizzlies are battling to get the final spot in a tough Western Conference, and they play tonight. The Heat and Pacers still haven’t settled who will have home-court if they — like most predict — meet in the Eastern Conference Finals. Let’s give the lowdown on the top five playoff races coming up on the end of the regular-season. Read More »

Video: Gerald Green Double-Clutch Jam

Every time the Suns play, we get another Gerald Green gem. He’s been playing really well off the bench for Phoenix since Eric Bledsoe returned, and while his shooting can sometimes drift into conscience-free jacking, he’s producing, which means guys have to run at him when he’s open beyond the arc. That just means more driving lanes for him to get airborne as he showed early during Phoenix’s 94-88 win in New Orleans Wednesday night. Read More »

The Suns got a big, 109-93, win in Portland on Friday night which kept them on pace them to remain in contention for the increasingly cramped race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Gerald Green was a big factor, dropping a game-high 32 points on 12-for-20 shooting and 4-of-7 from beyond the three-point arc. But, after getting stuck picking up his dribble at the elbow, he tossed an alley-oop off the backboard to himself for an altogether easy two-handed jam. Read More »

Nick Young

The Lakers are done, mathematically eliminated from a possible playoff berth a while back, and now just running out the season before probably firing coach Mike D’Antoni. But the beaten up Lakers faced off against the Suns on Sunday, one of a group of five teams looking to fit in four open playoff spots in the West. So of course Nick Young reveled in his team’s ability to put a dent in Phoenix’s playoff chances with their 115-99 win at the Staples Center. Read More »
