Chris Paul, Steph Curry, Blake Griffin

When Stephen Curry said he was a better offensive player than LeBron James, a lot of people guffawed.

Forgetting defense for a moment, here’s an attempt to rank, in order, the 10 best offensive players in the NBA today. Read More »

It’s become conventional wisdom that Stephen Curry is the greatest shooter in the world. The Golden State Warriors superstar made an incredible and record-setting 533 treys over the past two seasons, connecting on 43.9 percent of his attempts in the process.

Among the things we loved most about the World Cup were the unique replays and camera angles offered by the FIBA broadcast team. We were privy to awesome views of the games in Spain to which we simply aren’t accustomed from NBA action, and it made the rare August-September basketball even better than we were anticipating. Though Team USA took down upstart Serbia in the gold medal game yesterday and officially ended the tournament in the process, the FIBA experience was far from over for fans. Read More »

Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, J.R. Smith

The NBA features a small community of peers, so it makes sense a few players will sometimes get together to play some golf. Knicks wing J.R. Smith is one of the biggest golf fanatics in the Association, and he’ll often play with fellow golf fans like Stephen Curry and Chris Paul. Paul, though not an amazing golfer, is pretty good at dishing out the smack to JR on the links. Read More »
