Chris Paul and LA Clippers Remain An NBA Wild Card

Chris Paul and LA Clippers Remain An NBA Wild Card

The Los Angeles Clippers are absolutely infuriating. Yes, infuriating. I personally spent a large chunk of the NBA offseason criticizing their roster and many of the moves they made; I simply didn’t believe they were a contender, or even a viable powerhouse for that matter. But then the season began. Los Angeles was 8-2, Chris [...]

Kobe Bryant and Los Angeles Lakers Are Still an NBA Team to Fear

Kobe Bryant and Los Angeles Lakers Are Still an NBA Team to Fear

Their record doesn’t reflect, but the Los Angeles Lakers are still an NBA powerhouse to be feared. After Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard led the Lakers to a loss at the hands of the Howard-less Orlando Magic Sunday night, Los Angeles dropped below .500 for the fourth time this season. Obviously, for a franchise with [...]

Spurs Shouldn’t Be Fined for Sitting Big Three vs Heat

Spurs Shouldn’t Be Fined for Sitting Big Three vs Heat

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is currently both an NBA outlaw and, well, one helluva coach. Prior to the Spurs’ road game against the Miami Heat, Popovich made the decision to send Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, and even sharp shooter Danny Green, back to San Antonio to rest. This was a [...]

Rajon Rondo Failing as Leader of the Boston Celtics

Rajon Rondo Failing as Leader of the Boston Celtics

Rajon Rondo is failing as the leader of the Boston Celtics. Coming into this season, never before was there so much talk of Rondo being Boston’s end-all, the one who would keep the Celtics’ cause intact. And subsequently, never before has Rondo been more of a disappointment. Statistically, the point guard has been sound. He’s [...]

Are Deron Williams and Brooklyn Nets Legit NBA Contenders?

Are Deron Williams and Brooklyn Nets Legit NBA Contenders?

Looking at the Brooklyn Nets’ record, it’s difficult not to get excited. Brooklyn is currently 10-4 and sitting atop the Atlantic Division—they have their victory over the New York Knicks to thank for that. So why not get excited? This is the team’s first season not only in the Barclays center, but together in general. [...]

Dealing Amar’e Stoudemire Not Answer for NY Knicks

Dealing Amar’e Stoudemire Not Answer for NY Knicks

Amar’e Stoudemire’s name has become synonymous with disappointment. A sheer uttering of his name, in fact, is enough to send most New York Knicks fas into a comatose state. And you know what? We can’t blame them. Stoudemire was everything and more than the Knicks imagined he’d be during the early goings of the 2010-11 [...]

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. [...]
