Photo: Christmas Threw Up On This Spencer Hawes Suit

Spencer Hawes

The flowing tresses of Spencer Hawes have been shorn recently, but a bruised knee kept the sweet-shooting Clippers stretch five from suiting up against the Warriors on Christmas Day. Instead, he wore a suit, but not just any suit; a frenzied, seizure-inducing Christmas-colored suit that’s still hurting our eyes. Read More »

Reviewing The Sam Hinkie Era In Philadelphia

Sam Hinkie

It seems as though Sam Hinkie is almost done stripping down the team he took over after the 2012-13 NBA season. With Thaddeus Young officially traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the only player remaining on the Philadelphia 76ers roster, who was also on the roster when Hinkie took over, is — you guessed it — Jason Richardson. With Thad gone, it’s now official to say this is a Sixers team, with the exception of J-Rich, completely built by Hinkie, and it’s not a very good one, at least not yet. Read More »

Jamal Crawford had an eventful weekend. Not only did the reigning Sixth Man of the Year get married – congratulations to the newlyweds! – but he also hosted one of the most entertaining games you’ll see on a basketball court this summer. Crawford and the Seattle Pro-Am put on an admission-free “Midnight Madness” match on Saturday, featuring special NBA guest stars as a way to say “thank you” to the great city and fans of Seattle who have been supporting arguably the best pro-am in the nation all summer long.

Watch LeBron James Stuff Spencer Hawes In Slow-Mo

LeBron James, Spencer Hawes

He might have shot 10-for-11 from the field for 25 first-quarter points on Tuesday night in Cleveland, but it was LeBron James‘ block on Spencer Hawes that got us really excited. The snuff was reminiscent of poor Tiago Splitter‘s attempt to posterize James in the NBA Finals last year. We’re halfway convinced James met Hawes in flight because James is a Barack Obama supporter, and Hawes has no respect for our Commander-in-chief. Read More »
