TAG: Ramon Sessions
For only a half season’s worth of basketball, the NBA’s top athletes have put together a strong resume and large volume of impressive slams, so much so that we had to list 100 of them. There weren’t any that had to be forced on, either, to complete the list. No, there were plenty of worthy candidates to make this list go beyond the threshold of 100. Read More »
An NBA player did something this week that hasn’t been seen in over a decade and was previously performed by the league’s greatest dunker in a Slam Dunk Contest.
So, yeah, it was a good week for dunks, especially when the rest of the dunks consist of unlikely posters from unlikely names, including an act of vengeance from a certain Washington Wizards guard. Read More »
Basketball demands we break down its players not just by stats, but by the time and place they occur. That’s not the case in NBA fantasy hoops, though, where cold calculations rule the day and the matchup. Who are the Fantasy Doctor‘s choices for this week’s best pickups? Hit the jump to find out.

This one was about timing, but Ramon Sessions took a peek to his left right before lift off, and he knew who those footsteps belonged to. With LeBron James bearing down on him, Sessions went for the dunk anyway, and snuck past James to avoid the block. We’ve looked at this a few times, and James gave it his all to swat Sessions. It wasn’t happening. Ramon was in the air too quickly and avoided the chasedown block by a matter of inches. Read More »
Scouring through the NBA’s new, in-depth, advanced take on stats with its SportVU add-on has changed the game for good, from the minds of the front office personnel who may use it to the fans who educate themselves on a player’s strengths and weaknesses.
From figuring out who the league’s fastest and most agile players are to which big men are the best rebounders in traffic, the SportVU tool can put an end to any type of NBA-based argument because of how advanced it is when it comes to the numbers it produces. Read More »
The NBA’s Eastern Conference is in need of immediate assistance because outside of the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers, there are 13 other teams that are on life support.
The Atlanta Hawks are the only other team in the East with a record above .500 and that’s not going to last much longer with Al Horford now out indefinitely. That leaves the likes of the Charlotte Bobcats, Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards to compete for the coveted third seed. Read More »
So Dwight Howard has skipped town, exited stage left, lured by Houston’s friendly tax laws and evening entertainment. And while some might be quick to chalk it up as another stain on Jim Buss’ record, this is much more a byproduct of the culture created by Buss’ missteps, than a misstep itself. Read More »
No one, it seems, walks into Denver lately and comes out unscathed. The Nuggets are rolling past teams to the point if you go in on the back end of a back-to-back it’s almost an assumed loss and, welp, watch your head that you don’t get dunked on too badly. Read More »
Most nights when the home team gets run out of the gym, the arena is unusually quiet. Not last night in Philly. While the Clippers were busy laying a 17-point beatdown on the Sixers, the crowd was halfway in-between incensed and amazed. It really began in the third quarter, where the Clippers went on a run that put them up by 26. DeAndre Jordan had two dunks – one was off a Blake Griffin free throw miss where he puts his nuts in Arnett Moultrie‘s mug. Read More »
