Does Kevin Martin’s Free-Agency Stance Favor Thunder?

Does Kevin Martin’s Free-Agency Stance Favor Thunder?

Kevin Martin’s tenure with the Oklahoma City Thunders stands to live on. We think. With the volume-scoring guard set to explore unrestricted free agency upon season’s end, much has been made of his future, or lack thereof, in Oklahoma City. Not because of his performance, though. He’s averaging 14.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting (42.6 [...]

Carmelo Anthony of NY Knicks Says Dunking Is Not Important

Carmelo Anthony of NY Knicks Says Dunking Is Not Important

Carmelo Anthony doesn’t dunk anymore because, well, he apparently doesn’t have to. Or so he says. Per Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal, less than two percent of Melo’s points come off dunks (a career low), and he’s okay with that: Anthony’s dunk marked just his 19th slam of the season. His 21 dunk [...]

LeBron James Wasn’t Always Respected By Cleveland Cavaliers Teammates

Even before absconding to South Beach, LeBron James wasn’t always a beloved figure in Cleveland. Or should I say in the Cleveland Cavaliers locker room? Yeah, let’s go with that. Per Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida, James was often chided (resented?) by his teammates upon coming into the league: Silas wouldn’t give any names. [...]

Should Boston Celtics Trade Rajon Rondo or Avery Bradley This Summer?

Should Boston Celtics Trade Rajon Rondo or Avery Bradley This Summer?

The answer is no. The Boston Celtics have played their way well into the NBA’s playoff conversation and by doing so, they’ve opened the offseason floodgates, specifically with regard to Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley. Boston is 16-7 since Rondo went down and have, at the very least, feigned contention. Upon Rondo’s removal from the [...]

Are the NY Knicks and Carmelo Anthony Lying to Us?

Are the NY Knicks and Carmelo Anthony Lying to Us?

Carmelo Anthony isn’t the toughest of NBA players, and the New York Knicks certainly aren’t the most honest of franchises, but there’s no reason to believe either side is lying. After having his knee drained of fluid, Melo said that the buildup was related to a hamstring injury, which Mitch Lawrence of the New York [...]
