The 20 Best College Teams Of The Last 25 Years To Never Win An NCAA Title

Derrick Rose

If you watched the NCAA tournament this past weekend, you had the chance to witness that the best teams do not always win. We saw Duke lose to a 14-seeded Mercer team that destroyed all of our brackets, while also witnessing Kansas, Ohio State, Syracuse, North Carolina and Wichita State all fall early. Having the best talent can only get you so far when it comes to tournament time. In a tournament where anything can happen, it takes a great team that plays together to win the NCAA title–not just a group of individuals. Read More »

Video: Randy Foye’s Insane Game-Winning Three-Pointer

Randy Foye

At first, Monday night’s game seemed like a brain freeze by the Denver Nuggets. They were down two at home against the Clippers, and J.J. Hickson was at the top of the key holding the ball with a building panic on his face and in the surrounding Pepsi Center crowd. The clock kept ticking under five-seconds, then under four, and still Hickson is stuck holding the ball looking for a teammate. Finally, with under three seconds left, former Clipper Randy Foye sprinted to take the hand-off. Read More »

Carmelo Anthony, Randy Foye

The New York Knicks 2013-14 season has digressed into a waking nightmare. They’ve lost eight straight since their defensive bulwark, Tyson Chandler, went down with a fractured fibula. In a road trip to Denver on Friday night, things continued to tumble downhill when Carmelo Anthony missed a potential game-tying shot in his return to Denver. Read More »

Utah Moves Into Final West Playoff Spot; Kobe Bryant & Shaq Are Friends Again

Al Jefferson

Two weeks ago, we pronounced Utah dead, a casualty of a terrible stretch of scheduling and the expected rise of the Lakers. Now? They’ve won six games in a row, and have a half game lead on L.A. for the West’s last playoff spot after taking care of business against Portland last night, 112-102. Read More »

Steve Nash Is Back; LeBron Destroys Utah

Steve Nash

Christmas came early for the Lakers. Steve Nash is back, and he brought one of the Lakers’ most impressive wins of the season with him. L.A. had to fend off a list of issues to win against the Warriors: Jarrett Jack (29 points, 11 dimes) torching them, Dwight Howard foul trouble, a 14-point deficit, and Kobe Bryant (16-for-41 shooting, 34 points, 10 boards) shooting so often they classified his arms as unregistered firearms.

Indiana Pulls Off An Embarrassing Loss; The Lakers Lose Again & Are In Serious Trouble

Jeff Teague

We don’t often lead Smack with the Pacers, but what transpired in Atlanta last night was too depressing not to. We found out yesterday morning that Danny Granger is now going to miss three months of action, and for Indiana, that’s a major loss. It showed in a 89-86 loss to the Hawks. After going up 14 in the fourth quarter, the Pacers’ offensive rhythm made us want to cry. They were more of a mess than Romney‘s campaign strategy. Read More »

Video: The Best Assists Of The 2011-12 NBA Season

Jason Terry

Once Ricky Rubio took the league by storm in Minnesota, the assist became a theme for the season, and no team was more exciting than the Wolves. On the year, Rubio averaged 8.2 dimes a night, and even after his torn-up knee forced him to sit out the rest of the season, it felt like other guys in the league, everyone from Rajon Rondo to Rudy Fernandez, were trying to out-do him. Check out this awesome video of pretty much every great pass of the season. Read More »
