Video: Kings Inadvertently Play 4-On-5; Reggie Evans Misses Wide-Open Dunk

Reggie Evans

Back in October, Grantland’s Zach Lowe wrote about a bonkers experiment new owner Vivek Ranadive wanted to try with his Kings. The 4-on-5 defense with a cherry picker on the other end never materialized, but in the wake of Mike Malone’s firing, new reports leaked the strategy would be employed. Last night in Brooklyn it happened, but certainly not by plan. Read More »

NBA’s 20 Most Underpaid Players

Isaiah Thomas

The term underpaid isn’t the perfect adjective to describe athletes who make a pretty penny when compared to the common person. So I am going to take this somewhere my editors might not want me to go, but we are going to discuss NBA players providing great value in relation to their respective contracts. Read More »

20 NBA Players Who Could Beat Up Deebo

Zach Randolph

The movie Friday, the 1995 stoner flick featuring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, has become a cult classic over the years. I wanted to begin with a nice quote from the movie, but they all read like a Matt Barnes tweet. Anyway, the film surrounds a 16-hour period in which two unemployed bums (Craig and Smokey, played by Cube and Tucker respectively) must pay a local drug dealer $200 or risk facing his wrath.

Jeff Green Unleashes The Best Dunk Of The Preseason

Jeff Green

Kevin Garnett might love Reggie Evans unconditionally, but not even the support of a future Hall of Famer could’ve stopped the rebounding machine from getting dunked on last night. It wasn’t just a dunk, either. Jeff Green, who’s probably the most underrated high-flyer in the league, served up a facial that is easily the best dunk we’ve seen in the preseason. Read More »

Brooklyn’s Reggie Evans & Kevin Garnett Are Perfect Together

Reggie Evans

Before new Nets center Kevin Garnett waived his no trade clause so the deal sending him, and teammates Jason Terry and Paul Pierce, to Brooklyn, he had one more stipulation: the Nets couldn’t include workhorse rebounder Reggie Evans in the deal. The appreciation is mutual it appears as Evans and Garnett both shared with Newsday‘s Roderick Boone recently. Read More »

The 15 Best Frontcourts In The NBA

Tim Duncan

Frontcourts are the backbone of every successful NBA team. No team has won a championship without a dominant frontcourt since Jordan‘s Bulls, and Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen could certainly play a little bit. The point guard craze has taken over the NBA, but when is that last time a team led by a point guard won the championship? You could argue Chauncey Billups with the Pistons in 2004, but other than that you have to go all the way back to Isaiah Thomas and the Bad Boy Pistons in 1990. Read More »

The NBA’s 20 Best Role Players

Andrei Kirilenko

The NBA is a league dominated by stars. However, some of the most important guys are the secondary players, the ones who do the little things that help their team win. Most of the guys on this list are limited in some areas – and that is why they are role players. There are no scoring title winners or All-NBA players on this list – just guys who have a well-defined role who put the success of the team far above their own. Read More »

The 20 Toughest Players In The NBA

Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant, Jodie Meeks

Let’s establish this first: the NBA isn’t always given its fair due in regards to tough athletes. In an era where flopping has become such a frequent occurrence that fines have been instituted to eradicate them completely, the NBA’s reputation is slowly gaining traction again. Plays like Chris Bosh flopping like a sack of soggy potatoes after a Carlos Boozer post move, or Manu Ginobili flailing through the paint to draw imaginary fouls are indeed terrible, but could start dwindling now that players’ pockets are being attacked.

Before And After Brooklyn’s Reggie Evans Shaves His Beard (Pic)

Reggie Evans

The Brooklyn Nets’ reserve forward Reggie Evans is one of the most celebrated rebounders in the game today — seriously, check his rebounding rates if you don’t believe us — and while he’s a dominating force on the glass, he’s also known for the smattering of hair on his face. But that last part might change after Reggie shorn his famous facial hair. Read More »

The NBA’s 15 Strongest Players

Dwight Howard

The ability to bench press over 300 pounds is typically seen as a unimportant measure of how good a basketball player is. Remember Kevin Durant at the pre-draft combine in 2007? Yeah, exactly. In basketball, a player can get away without that unique strength. Basketball players simply mark strength differently. Read More »
