Philadelphia 76ers Shouldn’t Trade Evan Turner

Philadelphia 76ers Shouldn’t Trade Evan Turner

With Andrew Bynum still watching from the sidelines, the Philadelphia 76ers are open to trying almost anything, which apparently includes shopping Evan Turner. According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, Philly is gauging league-wide interest in the third-year swingman: The Sixers, sources say, are open to a shakeup as they continue to wait for the return of [...]

Kevin Love Finally Happy with Minnesota Timberwolves?

Kevin Love Finally Happy with Minnesota Timberwolves?

Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves do not have your typical superstar to franchise relationship. Partly because general manager David Kahn and the organization actually believe Love isn’t a superstar because he hasn’t led his team to the playoffs, but mostly because there seems to be a mutual animosity that exists between either party. Love [...]

NBA Rumors: Pau Gasol’s Injury Forces LA Lakers to Stand Pat

NBA Rumors: Pau Gasol’s Injury Forces LA Lakers to Stand Pat

Oh, Pau. Somewhere in the back of most of our minds, we thought the Los Angeles Lakers were going to make a trade. Even after general manager Mitch Kupchak said otherwise, there was a part of us that believed Hollywood’s finest were going to do something. Anything. Now, however, it’s become abundantly clear the Lakers [...]

Danilo Gallinari of Denver Nuggets Hits ‘Shot of the Century’

Danilo Gallinari of Denver Nuggets Hits ‘Shot of the Century’

Danilo Gallinari can score. Sometimes it’s pretty, sometimes it’s not. His game-icing bucket against the Milwaukee Bucks though was pretty—pretty damn wild. With the Denver Nuggets ahead by four and less than a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, Ty Lawson poked away an entry pass made by Brandon Jennings. Gallinari came up with the [...]

The Problem with Trading For Kevin Garnett

The Problem with Trading For Kevin Garnett

Move over Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett is about to take center stage at the NBA trade rumor mill extravaganza. Speculation has swirled over whether or not the Boston Celtics would ultimately deal Garnett, and thus blow up their financially cumbersome roster. As one of only four players with a no-trade clause in the Association, though, [...]

Don’t Expect Lakers to Be Active at Trade Deadline

Don’t Expect Lakers to Be Active at Trade Deadline

The Los Angeles Lakers are going to cap off a tumultuous season by doing nothing at the NBA’s trade deadline. Much has been made of what the team would try to do leading into February 21st. Would the Lakers attempt to trade Pau Gasol? Dwight Howard? Everyone (kidding)? Sitting 3.5 games outside the Western Conference [...]

Celtics Garnett Willing To Waive No-Trade Clause For LA?

Celtics Garnett Willing To Waive No-Trade Clause For LA?

Kevin Garnett may have just changed everything for the Boston Celtics. And when I say “everything,” I mean everything. Rajon Rondo’s torn ACL forces Boston to look at their assembly through a whole different lens. Suddenly, they’re not a veteran team led by a youthfully exuberant point guard. Instead, they’re just old. As such, no [...]

Danny Granger’s Return Makes Indiana Pacers Legitimate Contenders

Danny Granger’s Return Makes Indiana Pacers Legitimate Contenders

Danny Granger can be the answer for an Indiana Pacers team without a whole lot of questions. I’ve penned a number of thoughts on the star forward since he was shut down before the start of the season with a knee injury. Most have been responses to trade rumors that I simply don’t agree with. [...]

Boston Celtics Not Better Off Without Rajon Rondo

Boston Celtics Not Better Off Without Rajon Rondo

The Boston Celtics are undefeated since losing Rajon Rondo, which does anything but speak volumes about the point guard’s value to the team. Without Rondo, the Celtics are 4-0 and have snagged victories over the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, two authentic contenders. Naturally, after such immense, albeit brief, success, the narrative in Boston [...]
