The Lakers Get Pushed To A Breaking Point; The Hawks Almost Get Embarrassed

Kenneth Faried

A great recipe for disaster – at least if you’re the Lakers – is playing in Denver on the second night of a back-to-back. Old legs. The high altitude. The penchant of the Nuggets to play fast and frenetic. It almost never works out for L.A., and last night, not even 40 from Kobe Bryant was enough. Read More »

Linsanity Reclaims New York City; OKC Proves They’re The Best Team In The West

Jeremy Lin

If we needed any further proof that New Yorkers are crazed lunatics who are more up and down than Joe Flacco, we got it last night. In just a few short months, Jeremy Lin went from favorite son to Judas, from Linsanity to something quite average, and New Yorkers went from “Raymond Felton?” to “Raymond Felton!” Last year, Knicks fans would’ve have given you the business you had you spoken bad about Lin. Now, they’re reveling in his struggles, and booed him consistently last night after initially showing him some love during introductions. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Will Bynum On Detroit’s Potential, Derrick Rose & How To Fix His Beloved Chicago

Will Bynum

Will Bynum may be most famous for his mighty mite dunk power that led him to challenge the world to “Dunk Like Will.” His style of play was born out of a Chicago upbringing where, as he says, there wasn’t time to mess around. You either went straight to the rim, or you didn’t. Even as Bynum is turning 30 in January, his calling card is still his straight-ahead speed toward the rim. Read More »

Video: Andre Drummond Nearly 360 Dunks An Alley-Oop

Andre Drummond

Miami blew the Pistons out last night as Detroit was quite literally shooting bricks (35 percent for the game). But something interesting is going on in the Motor City. Andre Drummond, once considered the biggest project and largest risk in this summer’s NBA Draft Lottery, is turning heads. Lots of them. I wrote about his incredible preseason earlier this week, and whether he comes off the bench or not this year, we can count on him and Will Bynum hooking up on countless alley-oops. Read More »

More NBA Draft aftermath, and looking ahead to free agency

Dion Waiters

The aftermath of the NBA Draft is always a good time to tell who actually knows something about basketball and who should just sit in a corner and think about hockey. One particularly popular non-informed opinion we’ve heard across sports-radio shows and Internet columns since Thursday is that the Cavs messed up by taking Dion Waiters with the No. 4 overall pick. Now we’re not guaranteeing that Waiters will be a good pro. He might not pan out, just like any Top-5 pick could potentially be a bust. But if your only reason to bash Cleveland’s pick is that Waiters wasn’t a starter at Syracuse, well, you need a better reason. Read More »

10 NBA Teams That Need A New Point Guard

Mo Williams

Do you need a point guard? With so many little guys infiltrating the NBA these days, you’d think many teams would be aching to ship off some of their smaller contributors. But for every five me-first, get-my-own, shoot-’till-my-arm-is-numb lil’ guys, we might have one legit point guard left. They’re a dying breed, even as teams line their benches with quick-hitting spark plugs. At this point, there are a few guys available, and you take what you can get – shoot-first or not – as long as they can run an offense. Read More »

Dime #67: Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving Is The New King In Town

Kyrie Irving

I now understand what it’s like to be Kobe Bryant or LeBron James. During the 149-day lockout, I was repeatedly asked the same question over and over again: “How does the lockout affect your job?” By about the eighth time I heard this, I had developed a stock response that I could tell people. “NBA or no NBA, we’re still good. There’s college, high school and overseas ball, and now we just have more time to cover the players’ lives off the court.” Truthfully, I only partly believed myself. Read More »
