Trying To Make Sense Of The Phil Jackson Knicks Rumors

Phil Jackson

First, the Knicks were trying to get Phil Jackson to coach even though they have yet to terminate their current coach, Mike Woodson. Next, owner James Dolan hijacked negotiations (â„… Frank Isola) and Phil was joining the front office and the deal was all but done. Now sources tell ESPN’s Chris Broussard the team and Jackson are simply dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on a contract that would give him autonomy on all basketball-related matters. Except, not everyone’s sources agree, and so we’re left in the muck of rumormongering and conflicting reports about a franchise that’s just as conflicted. Read More »

The Top 25 NBA Players You Want Taking The Game’s Last Shot

Ray Allen

Whether fair or unfair, it’s safe to say that today’s athletes are judged foremostly upon their ability to shine when the stakes are the highest.

It’s the same in every sport: playoff greatness is simply far more significant than regular season success. Likewise, performances late in games are consistently put under heavy scrutiny, while a tendency to produce in the early stages of competition is often deemed irrelevant if one is unable to reach that same level when the outcome is on the line.

The 30 Best Players Born Outside Of The States In NBA History

Dirk Nowitzki

The NBA is always loaded with incredible talent. Players come from all over the world, and the best part about the NBA’s diversity is that some of the best talent the league comes from many different countries.

Michael Jordan

This year’s NBA Playoffs haven’t gotten off to a very exciting start. The home teams are 8-0, and the majority of those games haven’t been close. The best part of the weekend was actually probably Kobe Bryant‘s consistent tweeting. Read More »

Video: The Best Trash Talkers In NBA History

Charles Barkley

Ever since New York decided to bless the basketball world with more Rasheed Wallace and then this tape followed soon after, the offices at Dime have been on a trash-talking binge. Rasheed was one of the best, even if he normally saved his best stuff for either the referees or even his own teammates. But we’re not sure he makes a list of the best trash talkers ever.

Steve Nash Is The GOAT Shooter; Metta World Peace Didn’t Stress Over An Amnesty

Steve Nash

Everyone knows Steve Nash is an incredible shooter. If you’ve played NBA 2K13, you know it’s almost unfair how good virtual Nash is spotting up, too. (If the ball gets swung to him in rhythm in that game it’s game over, turn off the console, you’re going to lose almost every time.) However, when one of the best shooters in the NBA’s last 20 years (Steve Kerr) says that, “Statistically, it’s easy to make the argument that he’s the best shooter in the history of the league,” you have to open your eyes a little bit.

Josh Smith Has Contract Issues; LaMarcus Aldridge Is Called One Of The NBA’s Best Players

Josh Smith

When he was smashing on cats’ heads back at Oak Hill, we doubt Josh Smith thought he’d one day have to play his way into a contract. Alas, that’s where he’s now at with Atlanta, the only NBA home he’s ever known. New GM Danny Ferry is running a tight financial ship – you can ask Joe Johnson about that – and giving Smith a new deal doesn’t totally make sense for him, at least right now. Read More »
