Finally, at long last, the real season begins. But that doesn’t mean we can’t stop, look back, and appreciate the highlights and events that captivated us and stole our attention during the 2013-14 season. We’ve been treated to some great games, as recently as Sunday’s Golden State-Portland affair, and some highlights that may have been forgotten because of all the entertaining games we’ve witnessed this year.

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 »

It seems as if the All-Star Game only inspired players to throw down dunks that were far more vicious and creative than anything we saw in the first half of the season. Right out of the gate after the All-Star break, observers have been subject to some of the league’s best posters and alley-oops, whether they’re done by two players or only one, to start off the second half of the season.

Sixers Forward Spencer Hawes Has President Barack Obama Toilet Paper

Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner

Sixers teammates Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes must have been hanging out today because Turner posted a photo to Instagram with the caption that mentioned he was at Hawes’ abode. Two teammates hanging out together away from the court isn’t unusual, but the subject matter of Turner’s IG post certainly was, touching on both politics and potty humor in equal measure. Let’s just say Hawes isn’t a big fan of President Barack Obama, and that might be an understatement, too. Read More »

The 10 Best Passing Centers In The NBA

Joakim Noah

The center position is becoming a role that emphasizes versatility. The art of passing is a beautiful concept in the sport, but when executed appropriately by centers, it is a strength that should not be overlooked. Superstars like Bill Walton and Chris Webber–even though he normally manned the four-spot–exemplified the effective passing center, and their offenses instantly became more dangerous because of this ability.

Behind every great team, the superstars and the dynasties, are the guys that the average fans don’t know about. Regardless of the amount of talent at the top of the roster, coaches are forced to look for production from role players on a nightly basis. While the average fan may not realize these players exist, their impact, while consistently failing to show up in the box scores, is not disregarded by teammates or coaches. Read More »

Sink Or Swim? Breaking Down The NBA Playoff Chances For 10 Potential Tanking Teams

Michael Carter-Williams

In basketball, one thing is guaranteed: someone will win and someone will lose. This season, it appears the entire Eastern Conference (save Indiana and Miami) are playing Twisted Metal and driving tanks, trying to see which team can blow up the quickest. That wasn’t anymore evident than when Toronto shipped away Rudy Gay and received a McDonald’s value meal in return. Read More »
