Quincy Acy, Marcin Gortat

We’re pretty hesitant to award dunks poster status, but even we had to acknowledge this next one deserves the distinction. Watch as second year Kings forward Quincy Acy scores his only two points of the game when he goes up with a Gumby right arm and slams it home over Marcin Gortat. Read More »

The learning curve for rookies is a sliding scale even if every rook enters the NBA dreaming of 20 and 10 a night. Only eight rookies in 2011-12 averaged more than 10 points per game.

While many will be given scraps of playing time, these are the 10 who will be asked to do the most in their first year in the NBA. Read More »

OKC & Minnesota Blow Up The Scoreboard; UNC Barely Survives

Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook, Dime #43

It doesn’t matter if it took two extra overtimes, seeing a game end up with 289 points is crazy. Kevin Love channeled his recent anger to go berserk for a career-high 51 points, and yet the Thunder dominated the final overtime. Russell Westbrook scored the first points there and ultimately led OKC to a nine-point win with 45 points. Kevin Durant chipped in with 40 points and 17 rebounds, but as well as the Thunder’s big-name players balled, the rest of the team was non-existant. James Harden did his thing as well, but where was everybody else? They were busy making J.J. Barea (25 points, 14 assists) look like something other than a pretty good backup … Read More »

Now that we know the brackets and who will be playing where, the real fun begins. Anyone can fill out a bracket with four No. 1 seeds cutting down the nets and making the Final Four. But what fun is that? And more appropriately, how often does that even happen? There will be upsets and inevitably, a mid-level team will get hot. Take a look at LSU in 2006 (as a No. 4 seed) or Alabama in 2004 (as a No. 8 seed). Read More »
