GIF: Robin Lopez’s Emphatic Flush On Andrew Bogut

Robin Lopez, Andrew Bogut

Early in the third quarter, before Klay Thompson had detonated for his poster-worthy jam, Robin Lopez was alone at the top of the arc with his man, Andrew Bogut hedging towards LaMarcus Aldridge.

Watch Klay Thompson Posterize Robin Lopez

Klay Thompson, Robin Lopez

The ink isn’t even dry on Klay Thompson‘s four-year max extension with the Warriors and majority owner Joe Lacob must already feel like it was money well spent. After dropping 41 on the Lakers on Saturday night, Thompson had 20 at half against the Blazers on Sunday.

The Top 20 Centers In The NBA Right Now

Marc Gasol, Joakim Noah

The true center is a dying position, but big men haven’t been completely scrapped in terms of their relevance and impact in the NBA. Despite being erased from the All-Star ballot two seasons ago, when you peruse a box score the position is still manned by someone — even if only in name.

The league has a laundry-list of talented big men, but we wanted to ascertain who might be the best at the center position, so we compiled a list of the best in the NBA today. What you will find here are the names of players manning the middle who are important to their teams based on both previous history/accolades and potential impact this coming season. Stats and analytics tell the story for some, while untapped talent and opportunity tell the story for others. It’s all relevant. Read More »

Damian Lillard, Stephen Curry

The sophomore slump is a rite of passage for most second-year players. It’s mostly precipitated by fatigue, as the slog of an 82-game season inevitably begins to take its toll. It often manifests itself in shooting droughts and/or nagging injuries.

Lovable Weirdos Chris Kaman and Robin Lopez Are Right At Home in Portlandia

Robin Lopez

Robin Lopez, or “ROLO” as he’s affectionately called these days, became a fan favorite here in Portland almost overnight. Rip City loves its weirdos, and ROLO fits right in here with his unwieldy hair, his nerdist tendencies (comic books, video games, Disney collectibles, anything fantasy related), and his categorical goofiness. But more than anything, it was his all-around hustle on the court that endeared him to fans. That, and

Bombs officially dropped! Read More »
