Kevin Garnett Calls Doc Rivers ‘Damn Near Close’ to Perfect

Kevin Garnett Calls Doc Rivers ‘Damn Near Close’ to Perfect

Doc Rivers isn’t Ray Allen. Believe me, that’s an important distinction these days. Allen was the rat bastard traitor who left the Boston Celtics high and dry in 2012, spurning them for the Miami Heat and the opportunity to win a title. Rivers, who orchestrated his departure from Boston, is almost perfect. Or so says [...]

Knicks Could Pursue Bulls’ Tom Thibodeu

Knicks Could Pursue Bulls’ Tom Thibodeu

The New York Knicks are notorious for lusting after other people’s players (OPP). Now it seems they’re also interested in OPC—other people’s coaches. Head coach Mike Woodson has been on the hot seat ever since the Knicks began their current free fall. At 6-15 and sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic Division, he’s nowhere [...]

Pau Gasol Would Consider Return to Grizzlies

Pau Gasol Would Consider Return to Grizzlies

Bomb. Dropped. Pau Gasol, who will become an unrestricted free agent after this season, is in an awkward situation with the Los Angeles Lakers. He has been for quite some time. The Lakers have already tried trading him once, in a deal that would have landed them Chris Paul in 2011. There’s also the chance [...]

Paul George and LeBron James Are Competitors, Not Friends

Paul George and LeBron James Are Competitors, Not Friends

Paul George has enough friends. He doesn’t need to invite LeBron James to his next birthday party. People tend to fuss over these two. LeBron being who he is, and all—face of the two-time reigning NBA champions. And George being who he is and all—face of the Miami Heat’s greatest Eastern Conference challenger. George’s rise [...]

Rajon Rondo Doesn’t Know How to Fix the Knicks

Speaking with reporters, Rondo was asked about the recent rumor that Carmelo Anthony was recruiting him to join the Knicks in 2015, when he’ll become an unrestricted free agent. Rondo’s former high school coach at Oak Hill Academy, Steve Smith, [...]

Derrick Rose Believes Bulls Can Still Build Around Him

Derrick Rose Believes Bulls Can Still Build Around Him

NBA players don’t tend to doubt themselves, and for good reasons. Imagine watching Kobe Bryant, standing at the podium after signing his extension with the Los Angeles Lakers, talking about how he will probably never return to form. Picture LeBron James, sitting by his locker after a Miami Heat loss, promising the world that he’ll [...]

Stephen A. Smith Thinks ‘Melo Will Leave Knicks

Stephen A. Smith Thinks ‘Melo Will Leave Knicks

Welp. New York Knicks fans weren’t supposed to be worried about Carmelo Anthony leaving. Why would he? He loves New York. The city has endless marketing opportunities. The Knicks have $129 million with his name on it. ‘Melo is the only player an alcohol-basted James Dolan would jump through a ring of fire for. He’s [...]

Jared Sullinger Says Celtics Don’t Want ‘Wishy-Washy’ Fans

Jared Sullinger Says Celtics Don’t Want ‘Wishy-Washy’ Fans

And you thought the Boston Celtics were tanking. Don’t worry, you’re not alone; I thought so, too. Matter of fact, I still think so. They’re 8-12, probably to the dismay of general manager Danny Ainge. He likely figured them for a win or two by this point. Not eight. And there was no way in [...]

Knicks’ Sales Pitch In Iman Shumpert Trade Proposals Sucks

Knicks’ Sales Pitch In Iman Shumpert Trade Proposals Sucks

Oh, you New York Knicks. You wildly dysfunctional, presently terrible New York Knicks. You never cease to amaze us whilst also making us loathe ourselves for indulging your embarrassing antics. Sorry, did I lose you there? Good, I didn’t think so. The Knicks have been a living, breathing catastrophe this season. Reminiscent of the days [...]
