GIF: Russell Westbrook Destroys Rim On Tomahawk Jam, Then…Raises The Roof?

Russell Westbrook

If we had to make a list of the most entertaining NBA players to watch right now, Russell Westbrook would be at, or near, the top. The Thunder point guard is also playing out of his mind since returning from a hand injury that kept him out of 15 games earlier this season. Against Sacramento last night, Russ continued to abuse OKC opponents, and even brought back a celebration that was at its peak way back in the 1990s. Read More »

Report: Kings To Play Semblance Of 4-On-5 Strategy Wanted By Owner

Vivek Ranadive

Canning a coach 24 games into the season whose team’s recent struggles were the direct result of a franchise player’s absence is bad. Replacing him with an assistant whose last go-round as head man was close to a disaster is worse. But the latest wrinkles concerning Mike Malone’s sudden firing from the Sacramento Kings are still the strongest indication yet that zealous owner Vivek Ranadive is completely in over his head. According to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Sacramento will play a “semblance” of the laughable 4-on-5 strategy championed by Ranadive under interim coach Ty Corbin. Read More »

Report: Kings Can Malone & May Hire Del Negro, Which Compounds The Mistake

Mike Malone, DeMarcus Cousins

The Sacramento Kings fired coach Mike Malone on Sunday night, as Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski first reported, and USA Today‘s Sam Amick confirmed. He’ll be replaced by assistant coach Tyrone Corbin on an interim basis. There was a clash over playing style between GM Pete D’Alessandro and Malone, who were hired in the reverse order by headstrong owner Vivek Ranadive.

Video: Nick Young Step-Back 4-Point Play On Nik Stauskas

Nick Young

Last season, the Lakers’ Nick Young led the league, and set a franchise record, with seven successful four-point plays. Say what you want about Swaggy P’s outgoing personality, but credit should be given to the 29-year-old for his knack at positioning his body to create contact while still generating enough upper-body space to launch the long ball with decent accuracy.
