NBA Trade Rumors: Rudy Gay Good as Gone from Grizzlies

NBA Trade Rumors: Rudy Gay Good as Gone from Grizzlies

From hereon out, every game Rudy Gay plays with the Memphis Grizzlies could be his last. We’ve talked about it since the Grizzlies went on that impressive playoff run in 2011 without him, but now, it’s never seemed more real. With a boatload of money committed to Mike Conley, Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and Gay [...]

Golden State Warriors Better Without Andrew Bogut?

Golden State Warriors Better Without Andrew Bogut?

The Golden State Warriors have established themselves as an NBA powerhouse—without Andrew Bogut. Now let that sink in. Especially the part about the Warriors being a powerhouse. Surprised? Shocked?

John Wall Will Save Bradley Beal and Wizards

John Wall Will Save Bradley Beal and Wizards

The Washington Wizards need John Wall. Bad. Like really bad. Coming out of an off-season that saw the Wizards make a variety of moves geared at playoff contention, Wall’s knee injury changed everything. Washington currently sits at 4-26, the NBA’s worst record by far. Once again, a complete and utter sense of hopelessness has washed [...]

It’s Time for the Dallas Mavericks to Start Dirk Nowitzki

It’s Time for the Dallas Mavericks to Start Dirk Nowitzki

It’s officially time for Dirk Nowitzki to be inserted back into the starting lineup. And the Dallas Mavericks should take note. When I look at the 13-20 Mavericks, I, for some reason, still see a playoff team. Don’t ask me why, but I believe Nowitzki, O.J. Mayo and Darren Collison make for a dynamic offensive [...]

Timberwolves Rumors: Moving Kevin Love Would Be Foolish

Timberwolves Rumors: Moving Kevin Love Would Be Foolish

Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves aren’t the most harmonic of pairings, yet this union is anything but irreparable.

NBA Trade Rumors: Pacers Shouldn’t Deal Danny Granger

The Indiana Pacers are officially rolling without Danny Granger, yet that hardly means they don’t need him.

And, once again, the Pacers finally look like [...]

Amar’e Stoudemire Still Key to NY Knicks Championship Chase

Amar’e Stoudemire Still Key to NY Knicks Championship Chase

Amar’e Stoudemire has a long way to go, but that’s no reason for the New York Knicks to panic. The six-time All-Star returned to New York’s rotation on New Year’s Day, as the Knicks fell to the Portland Trail Blazers 105-100. He played just 17 minutes, was an unimpressive 3-of-8 from the field and finished [...]

Dallas Mavericks Smart to Play It Safe with Dirk Nowitzki

Dallas Mavericks Smart to Play It Safe with Dirk Nowitzki

The Dallas Mavericks are struggling. Like really struggling. Like they need Dirk Nowitzki to drop 25 a night bad struggling. But that’s no reason to rush the rehabilitation on his surgically repaired knee. Dallas was given a gift when Nowitzki made a surprise return against the San Antonio Spurs. Since then, he has continued to [...]
