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 »

Former high school standout Tony Wroten played sparingly in Memphis last season, appearing in only 35 games and scoring a combined 91 points on the year. But over the weekend, the 6-6 combo guard was traded to Philadelphia for a future second-round pick. The 76ers should be the NBA’s capital in the tankapalooza intended for Andrew Wiggins next season.
