Austin Rivers is Not a Bust for New Orleans Hornets

Austin Rivers is Not a Bust for New Orleans Hornets

I’d like to start off by saying that Austin Rivers of the New Orleans Hornets is a rookie. Necessary? You wouldn’t think so, but some people seem to have forgotten this. Less than 20 games into the season, plenty of pundits and fans alike are already calling for the 20-year-old’s head. Are you kidding me? [...]

Stephen Curry and Golden State Warriors Are Playoff Contenders

Stephen Curry and Golden State Warriors Are Playoff Contenders

What in the hell is going on with the Golden State Warriors? Somehow, essentially without the likes of Andrew Bogut and Brandon Rush, Golden State finds itself atop the NBA’s Pacific Division. In case you’re wondering, that’s the same Pacific Division that houses both the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers. So, I repeat, [...]

NBA Rumors: Marcin Gortat Smart Not to Re-Up with Phoenix Suns

NBA Rumors: Marcin Gortat Smart Not to Re-Up with Phoenix Suns

Marcin Gortat is a smart man. Like a really smart man. Smarter than the Phoenix Suns could have ever known him to be. Which doesn’t bode well for them. According to Paul Coro of azcenteral.com, the Suns offered Gortat a contract extension back in October, one in which he ultimately declined: Suns center Marcin Gortat [...]

Steve Nash Holds Key to L.A. Lakers’ Success

Steve Nash Holds Key to L.A. Lakers’ Success

When watching the Los Angeles Lakers, it doesn’t take long to see that they’re missing something or rather, someone. That someone is Steve Nash. It seems fairly obvious. After all, Nash is a perennial All-Star who can give you 15 points and 10 assists per game. Yet his value to Los Angeles doesn’t stop there. [...]

Carmelo Anthony Must Lead by Example for NY Knicks

Carmelo Anthony Must Lead by Example for NY Knicks

I’m worried about the New York Knicks. More specifically, I’m worried about Carmelo Anthony and the effects his leadership will have on these Knicks. Anthony is having a sensational season. He’s averaging 25.3 points and seven rebounds per game, posting a 22.49 PER in the process–the highest of his career. To say he’s one of [...]

Is Andrew Bynum Officially a Bust for 76ers?

Is Andrew Bynum Officially a Bust for 76ers?

The Philadelphia 76ers may have made a mistake. That mistake may have been Andrew Bynum. After shipping out a franchise cornerstone in Andre Iguodala in exchange for Bynum’s services, the towering big man has yet to set foot on the floor as he continues to wage a losing battle with both of his knees. And [...]

Kyrie Irving and Cleveland Cavaliers Need More Than Dion Waiters

Kyrie Irving and Cleveland Cavaliers Need More Than Dion Waiters

Remember when Dion Waiters was considered a draft-day reach for the Cleveland Cavaliers? Of course you do. And remember when he made critics eat such a notion? Duh. Then remember when he started to look like a bust once again? Wait, what? That’s correct. After what was supposed to be a coming out party for [...]

Andre Iguodala and Nuggets Not Playing Like NBA Contenders

Andre Iguodala and Nuggets Not Playing Like NBA Contenders

The Denver Nuggets have a problem. Strike that, the Nuggets have a bounty of problems, none more pressing, however, than their overall start to the season. After having what many deemed one of the most fruitful offseasons in the NBA, Denver currently sits at 4-6. To put that record into a more significant context, let’s [...]

Lakers Rumors: Josh Smith to Lakers for Pau Gasol Makes No Sense

Lakers Rumors: Josh Smith to Lakers for Pau Gasol Makes No Sense

Neither Pau Gasol or Josh Smith is having a career year, and neither the Los Angeles Lakers nor Atlanta Hawks should agree to trade one for the other. There was plenty of chatter surrounding the two last year, when Smith had requested out of Atlanta and Los Angeles had been shopping Gasol, so it was [...]

Carmelo Anthony and NY Knicks Are Poster-Team for NBA Perfection

Carmelo Anthony and NY Knicks Are Poster-Team for NBA Perfection

There’s an age old adage that dictates defense wins championships. For the New York Knicks, though, it’s been perseverance that will allow them to contend for a title. New York is the NBA’s only undefeated team at the moment, a feat few could have fathomed for this Knicks squad that is not only the oldest [...]
