NBA’s Best Halloween Costumes

Andre Iguodala

Personally, I’m not that big a fan of Halloween. And when it lands on a Monday, it seems like the holiday just never ends. With that said, I do love to see what costumes NBA players decide to wear, and after last year’s festivities, you might remember that some guys get all decked out. After the jump, check out the NBA’s best Halloween costumes from this year. Read More »

NBA Fantasy Team Analysis: The Oklahoma City Thunder

Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook

The Oklahoma City Thunder are not like a box of chocolates. You know they’ve got four fantasy studs that can feasibly be drafted in succession in the first four rounds of standard-sized drafts. Truth be told, no one else on this roster really matters. It will be interesting to monitor how the team’s mercurial point guard adjusts to having a more prominent mate in the backcourt. Read More »

The Thunder Prove There’s No Breakup; The Nuggets Are Losing All of Their Players

Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook

Every time someone comes forward to attempt to break a story about the breakup of the Thunder, we get hit with a spinning forehand right back at our faces. Recently, a team workout was organized for four days on the University of Texas campus. 10 of the team’s 15-man roster showed up. Out of the players who didn’t show up, some were overseas, another was recently married and the other two were Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson. This came just before there were reports that Perkins and Russell Westbrook had problems last year. A team with rifts and chemistry problems doesn’t do this, trust us. There were no organization personnel on hand (obviously), and everything was set up by Royal Ivey, who just happens to be like, the last man on the bench. Read More »

The 10 Best NBA Names Of All-Time

O.J. Mayo

Friday afternoons used to be the best time in middle school. That was when the most heated arguments always unfolded because no one cared about school (not that we ever did, but it got worse after about 11 on a Friday) and even the teachers were throwing glances at the clock every 15 minutes. Back then, it was a daily thing to stretch and weave people’s names. Up until that time, I had been called Weeney probably close to 4,000 times. Read More »

Dime Q&A: D.J. Augustin on music, playing with Kevin Durant, and playing for Michael Jordan

D.J. Augustin

With Raymond Felton possibly on his way out of Charlotte (not to mention Larry Brown), next season could be D.J. Augustin‘s first at the helm of the Bobcats offense. After an impressive rookie campaign, Augustin struggled last year as he averaged just 6.3 points on 39 percent shooting. Entering his third season, it’s a huge year for the former Texas guard to establish himself in the League.

Yesterday I caught up with D.J. to chat about the playoffs, Kevin Durant, Charlotte’s new owner, and Drake‘s new album… Read More »

Fantasy Analysis: T-Mac to NYC, Nate to Boston, Tyrus to Charlotte and More

Tracy McGrady

Tracy McGrady is finally a Knick, Nate Robinson is a Celtic and Tyrus Thomas has transformed from a sulky Bull into a brooding Bobcat. There were also a few odds and ends to note as the trade deadline passed, and it’s clear that fantasy owners have some work to do if they want to sort through the debris to separate the gems from the rubble. Let’s take a look at the notable fantasy implications. Read More »
