Carmelo Anthony Told Sixers Fan to Go ‘F***’ Himself’

Carmelo Anthony Told Sixers Fan to Go ‘F***’ Himself’

Know how we know that Carmelo Anthony is done with this season? The profanity. Anthony’s frustrations have slowly, surely been bubbling to the surface in recent weeks, as his Knicks have played their way out of playoff contention in the Eastern Conference. First, there was the whole “glazed donut face ass” tweet he directed at [...]

Celtics GM Scouting Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker

Well, duh. The 2014 NBA draft class is expected to be the deepest pool of talent seen since 2003, when players like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade each made jumps to the Association. Naturally, teams holding first-round picks—and multiple first-rounders—are taking a long hard look at the most highly touted targets. Especially the [...]

Heat May Not Be Done Making Trades

Heat May Not Be Done Making Trades

Scary thought: Playing the Heat. Scarier thought: Playing a better version of the Heat. Despite spending much of the 2013-14 regular season in cruise control, the Heat are still scary good. Naked-pictures-of-Robin-Williams scary; any-movie-starring-Jason-Bateman good. And according to NBA.com’s David Aldridge, they’re hoping to get even better: With Oden looking like he can be a [...]

Paul George and Frank Vogel Don’t Like Sleeved Jerseys

Paul George and Frank Vogel Don’t Like Sleeved Jerseys

It’s official: No one likes the NBA’s sleeved uniforms. Sweeping generalizations are typically taboo. Who am I to speak for everyone? Seriously, who am I? Nobody—in the scheme of everyone, at least. Same holds true here. I can’t say everyone hates those jerseys—except I just did. Because everyone hates them. That’s how it seems. A [...]

Nets Owner Still Thinks Team Can Win Title

Nets Owner Still Thinks Team Can Win Title

Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov hasn’t given up his team. Meaning? He’s a far better man than I am. Although the Nets have began the season 16-22, waffling in and out of the Eastern Conference’s playoff picture, Prokhorov has yet to give up hope. His team was supposed to contend for a title following the [...]

Warriors GM Implies Dubs Not Done Making Trades

Jordan Crawford may not be enough for the Warriors. Just a day after completing a three-team trade with the Celtics and Heat that landed the Dubs MarShon Brooks and Crawford, we catch word they might not be done.

Jimmy Butler Calls Chicago Bulls ‘Grimy’

Jimmy Butler Calls Chicago Bulls ‘Grimy’

Jimmy Butler thinks the Bulls are grimy—in a good way. Following Chicago’s triple-overtime victory over the Magic, Butler was exhausted. “Y’all can go with me right now because I can’t move,” he told reporters, according to The Chicago Tribune‘s K.C. Johnson. “Tired” probably isn’t the appropriate word. Butler logged a franchise-record 60 minutes, 20 seconds [...]

Mike Woodson Says ‘Melo Will Retire with Knicks

Not everyone thinks Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony is a flight risk this summer. Ask head coach Mike Woodson, and he’ll tell you ‘Melo isn’t going anywhere. Ever.

Danny Ainge Expected to Shop Rajon Rondo

Danny Ainge Expected to Shop Rajon Rondo

Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge has maintained all along he will not be trading Rajon Rondo. He was lying. Probably. Maybe. According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, the Celtics are expected to shop the All-Star point guard once he’s healthy: All three of the teams ahead of them have at least one young player they [...]
