Magic Johnson’s Wrong, Dwight Howard Won’t Be Traded

Magic Johnson’s Wrong, Dwight Howard Won’t Be Traded

The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t going to trade Dwight Howard, and Magic Johnson should remember that. Per Matt Formica of Hoopsvibe.com, Johnson took a controversial stance on Howard’s situation: Magic Johnson just made it clear (on National TV) that if he was Lakers CEO Jim Buss, he would trade Dwight Howard. “If I’m Mark Cuban, [...]

Does Kobe Bryant Want Lakers to Make a Trade?

Does Kobe Bryant Want Lakers to Make a Trade?

Kobe Bryant is a lot of things, but patient isn’t one of them. With the Los Angeles falling to 17-23 and three games outside of the Western Conference’s playoff picture, naturally, the Black Mamba’s patience is wearing thin. Everybody who calls Hollywood home is undoubtedly at their wits end and everyone has their own idea [...]

Doc Rivers Ready for Celtics to Blow it Up?

Doc Rivers Ready for Celtics to Blow it Up?

Doc Rivers isn’t happy with the Boston Celtics, and we can’t really blame him. After losing four straight games, the Celtics went on a six game winning streak, one that included four victories over playoff hopefuls. Since then, Boston has dropped another three in a row, two of which have come against an Eric Gordon-less [...]

Tyson Chandler NBA All-Star Game’s Biggest Snub

Tyson Chandler NBA All-Star Game’s Biggest Snub

Tyson Chandler, not Kevin Garnett should be starting for the Eastern Conference in the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. Case closed. In what was a completely expected snub, Garnett was named as an All-Star starter while Chandler was left to wonder if he would be able to make the final coaches cut. But while it was [...]

Portland Trail Blazers Shouldn’t Trade J.J. Hickson

Portland Trail Blazers Shouldn’t Trade J.J. Hickson

The Portland Trail Blazers are suddenly a playoff contender, and J.J. Hickson is suddenly a hot commodity. At present, Portland is one game over .500 and just a half-game outside the Western Conference playoff bubble. In the midst of a rebuild, few expected the Blazers to toil with a .500 record, let alone a playoff [...]

It’s Time for Atlanta Hawks to Deal Josh Smith

It’s Time for Atlanta Hawks to Deal Josh Smith

Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks needs to go. I’ve fought such a feeling since the team dealt Joe Johnson to the Brooklyn Nets. I believed that now free from the shackles that is playing alongside Johnson, Smith would thrive. I believed that as “the man” in Atlanta, he would want to stay. I believed [...]

Do Dallas Mavericks Have a Blockbuster Trade in Them?

Do Dallas Mavericks Have a Blockbuster Trade in Them?

Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki want the Dallas Mavericks to not just win, but contend for a title. But is that even possible? With the current roster, no. Hence Cuban’s interest in holding a fire sale. Or rather, a “I’ll take on any contract you don’t want if I like them” sale. Though Nowitzki’s return [...]

Have Kobe Bryant and LA Lakers Turned a Corner?

Have Kobe Bryant and LA Lakers Turned a Corner?

Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers have finally arrived. Sort of. It’s been just two games, two victories over poor to mediocre factions, yet it’s meant something. It’s meant everything. Los Angeles has throttled the likes of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks over the last two contests en route to its first two [...]
