1) THE RETURN OF THE JEDI
Derrick Rose loves making defenders look confused, hapless, and lost. “You don’t want to stay in front of me," deadpans Rose, and with a casual wave of his hand and some dizzying footwork he is splitting double teams and assaulting the rim. Like Luke Skywal
Andrew Wiggins will be dealing with some pretty outrageous pressure during his only first season with the Kansas Jayhawks. ESPN.com's Myron Medcalf named him the most indispensable player in the NCAA next season over such players as Marcus Smart and Doug McDermott despite the fact that they are men who have actually played college basketball before
I think the best landing spot for Dwight is in Houston, though you of the third-grade reading level and mind unriddled by dementia probably gathered that from the spoiler-ridden headline. You will not read any of the following phrases in this article: “no state taxes,” “building a brand,” “extra year at the max,” or, my favorite, “larger annual raises, ” as though the NBA were a government entity with an unsavory reputation for enacting pay freezes on their hapless employees
There are certain things we're all rooting for on the evening of the NBA Draft. Bill Simmons has chronicled most of them at length already, so I won't waste too much of your time blathering on about how great the awkward hugs, ill-fitting suits, smug Stern grins, and Jay Bilas WINGSPAN freak-outs are year-in and year-out. If you just cl
He looked done. The man who adopted “fall down seven times, get up eight” as his mantra looked to be reeling. Maybe ten years of relentlessly attacking the basket without any regard for the hazards of such daring aerial assaults had finally grounded him.
When things go wrong in the media world, the 24-hour- news cycle is often deemed culpable. Our fast paced society craves new facts concerning new events to digest on a new tablet with the new news app from a new blog from a new media company. Not coincidentally, a lot of nonsense gets flagged as worthwhile news to satiate hungry media consumers.
After their embarassing game three loss, the Heat would probably benefit from a different approach. There is chatter coming from Miami that they may move Lebron James to center and start Mike Miller, which would create some intriguing matchup difficulties for the Spurs. Here are some less extreme tweaks that the Heat could make t
Summer is around the corner. Its time to get reacquainted with “outdoors,” colloquially defined as that pesky, unpredictable region that you're forced to navigate between your house and your car. Outdoors is us
Anyone who's seen Victor Oladipo play this season would probably object to an article structured around the premise that he is "safe." Such a seemingly banal term should not apply to this pick-pocket, a tomahawk-dunking guard with steely nerves and singular determination.
I had Georgetown in the final game. Excuse me for assuming that the most polished, versatile wing player in the country would be able to lead one of the Big East's best squads past a team from Florida comprised entirely of dudes recruited at a Spring Break slam dunk contest. I was wrong. I'm glad I was.
It must be March. The Spurs have 50 wins, NFL teams are shelling out drunk-Kardashian levels of cash on free agents and Albany bros are wreaking some holiday havoc. Oh yeah, its also tournament time! Here are three game-changing players with the sort of tantalizing talent that can single-handedly swing a bracket.
