GIF: Steph Curry Nearly Breaks Wilson Chandler With Nasty Step-Back

Wilson Chandler, Stephen Curry

What are defenders supposed to do with Steph Curry? The league’s best shooter has developed into arguably its best handler and passer, and emerged as an elite finisher at the rim, too. That’s an impossible combination of traits for a defensive player to stop. Is it necessarily fair to highlight Wilson Chandler’s horribly failed efforts to stop Curry, then? No. But it’s certainly entertaining. Watch the Golden State Warriors MVP candidate nearly break the swingman with a nasty, nasty step-back in his team’s 122-79 win over the Denver Nuggets yesterday.

Dime Q&A: Fully Healthy, Wilson Chandler Wants Playoffs & Sixth Man Award

Wilson Chandler

The effects of serious injuries on professional athletes are rippling. Weakness or surgery inevitably means time away from training, practice, and games that often lets related parts of the body atrophy. But when players begin rehabilitation or even return to the playing field, it’s easy to concentrate solely on the specific injury as opposed to connected areas that were also affected by trauma related to it or simply a period of rest to which they’re unaccustomed. Health maladies are rarely a one-off. Read More »

For only a half season’s worth of basketball, the NBA’s top athletes have put together a strong resume and large volume of impressive slams, so much so that we had to list 100 of them.

NBA’s 10 Best Dunks Of The Week

Ray Allen, Kent Bazemore

Taking the top spot on this week’s dunks of the week is a small forward throwing down a vicious one-handed alley-oop. At this point, you’d assume I was talking about LeBron James, right? Not this time.

Other members of this week’s list include a pair of big men running the break and putting smaller defenders on a poster, as well as a turn-back-the-clock moment from one of the league’s ageless wonders. Read More »

The 20 Best Small-Ball Lineups In The NBA

Carmelo Anthony

Just a short year ago, we were blessed to watch the USA Men’s basketball team storm into London and pick apart each opponent with a variety of different tactics that emphasized speed and transition defense. Those lineups, at times, were sorely lacking in the height department. We would occasionally find the 6-8 Carmelo Anthony at the center position where he would rebound and “attempt” to guard opposing centers. Read More »
