The 15 Worst Playoff Collapses In NBA History

Paul Pierce

Why do we watch? If the NBA were predictable, it would simply be boring. Yet, as we all know just from this postseason alone, expect the unexpected. The Oklahoma City Thunder and Washington Wizards each blew double-digit second-half leads to their opponents this weekend, allowing the Los Angeles Clippers and Indiana Pacers to either tie the series or take a commanding series lead.

The 10 Most Exciting Teams In NBA History

Sacramento Kings

As an NBA fan, there is nothing worse than watching a boring basketball game. Every few years we get lucky to witness a team that displays an absurd amount of showmanship on the court; a current example is “The Lob City” Clippers. In a sport that is played at a fast pace, we have seen teams throughout the years elevating the excitement on the court. I counted down the most exciting teams in NBA history. Read More »

15 Colleges That Produce The Best NBA Players

Vince Carter

With All-Stars like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard running the league from an attention standpoint, it’s hard to argue that high schoolers can’t make the successful jump to the NBA. Even international players like Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have had Hall of Fame careers after coming to the states. Read More »

50 Best Nicknames In NBA History

Larry Bird, Magic Johnson

“Once you gain a nickname in this league, that’s the ultimate respect”Paul Pierce

In many cases, what Pierce said was true (see what I did there?). Many guys on this list earned their nicknames for great play on the court, and by no coincidence most of the best players in the history of the league appear on this list. Others earned their nicknames from funny commercials or movies, while still more earned them for just funny looks. We stayed away from shortening of names like “T-Mac” and “J-Kidd” or initials like “KJ,” focusing simply on the best nicknames. Read More »

20 Craziest Fights In NBA History

fights

Gone are the days where two NBA teams who straight-up didn’t like each other could get together and elevate their rivalry with a brawl. Good riddance. Those who enjoy watching titans inflict pain on each other can find plenty of other vices to quench their thirst for violence. In fact, there are entire weekends devoted to it, with the college and professional rankings of football dedicated to humans crashing into each other and hoping they hurt their opponent as much as they want to hurt them.

Robert Horry’s Top 10 Clutch Plays

roberthorry

The clutch gene, the killer instinct — even the players themselves struggle to articulate just what it is that allows them the level of focus and concentration necessary to make big-time shots under tremendous pressure. Whatever you want to call it, Robert Horry had it in spades. He was an assassin; he had ice water in his veins; he laughed in the face of pressure. He also turns 43 today. Read More »

The 15 Most Clutch Performances In NBA History

Larry Bird, Magic Johnson

We love to throw around the word clutch whenever we can, but sometimes use it so loosely that it loses all meaning. We have to be selective when declaring whether someone is key in crunch time or hides from the moment, and we have to be fair. That also means that while I think a player can be clutch by hitting a game-winning shot, it doesn’t mean he’s not if he doesn’t always come through (looking at you, LeBron). Read More »
