Come on, Tony Parker. Couldn’t you have waited to flop until the games actually mattered next week? We came all this way to the final night of preseason play with only one egregious dive! Well, actually it’s probably prudent to get in mid-season flopping form now. Watch the San Antonio Spurs’ point guard draw the whistle by embellishing contact and yelling “Hey!” upon releasing an uncontested shot. Read More »

Will Damian Lillard Reach Elite Status This Season?

Damian Lillard, Stephen Curry

The sophomore slump is a rite of passage for most second-year players. It’s mostly precipitated by fatigue, as the slog of an 82-game season inevitably begins to take its toll. It often manifests itself in shooting droughts and/or nagging injuries.

On the surface, Damian Lillard was mostly immune to this last season, but if you were watching closely, you noticed that his field goal percentage came in peaks and valleys, and there were times throughout the season when he was downright streaky. Read More »

Photos: Lady Gaga Poses With Spurs’ Parker, Ginobili, & Larry O’Brien Trophy

Tony Parker, Lady Gaga

We tried to come up with a few puns or sarcastic jabs to discuss the photos Lady Gaga posted to Instagram of her posing with the Larry O’Brien Trophy, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker. We even quickly jotted down our list of favorite Gaga songs – that may or may not begin with “Bad Romance” – for inspiration. But upon reading the songstress’ sincere, gracious captions, we’ll simply let the pics speak for themselves. Read More »

The Top 20 Point Guards In The NBA Right Now

Chris Paul, Stephen Curry

To survive in today’s NBA, you need a good point guard. You just do. Of the teams that finished last season with the eight best records, six of them either had an All-Star point guard or LeBron James. The other two teams were the Indiana Pacers (who, without the stability that a good point guard brings, fell apart down the stretch) and the Houston Rockets (eliminated in the first round).

The point guard on a basketball court is like the quarterback on the gridiron. He’s the general, the leader, the boss.

The NBA in 2014 is littered with talented point guards. And just like the “Who’s the best quarterback in the NFL?” arguments, few NBA debates spark disagreement like the “Who’s the best point guard in the NBA?” debate does.

Delusional Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant fans notwithstanding, we’re all generally in agreement that James is, hands down, the best basketball player in the world. The point guard debate is a different monster. There are four or five different guys that, depending on whom you ask, can be considered the NBA’s alpha dog point guard.

The good news is that I’m here to finally settle the debate. Here are the NBA’s top 20 point guards. Read More »
