J.J. Redick Quietly the Key to Los Angeles Clippers’ Offense

J.J. Redick Quietly the Key to Los Angeles Clippers’ Offense

The Los Angeles Clippers are fighting for playoff position in the tremendous Western Conference, relying on the three-headed monster of point guard Chris Paul, power forward Blake Griffin and center DeAndre Jordan to lead the way. However, the NBA’s second-most prolific scoring unit can only engineer a postseason run if its perimeter specialist remains on [...]

Stephon Marbury, Beijing Ducks Win Second Straight Chinese Basketball Association Title

Stephon Marbury, Beijing Ducks Win Second Straight Chinese Basketball Association Title

Professional basketball careers in the United States cannot last forever. Stephon Marbury, a two-time All-Star during his 13 seasons of NBA service, moved on from the league in 2009. The point guard left a lasting impression, however, twice earning third-team All-NBA honors while racking up 19.3 points and 7.6 assists per game throughout 846 appearances. [...]

Arizona, Ohio State Victories Set Up Showdown Between Future NBA Draft Lottery Picks

The Ohio State Buckeyes and Arizona Wildcats both won their opening game of the 2015 NCAA tournament, setting up a Saturday night thriller between the two programs. But more importantly, it places freshman phenoms D’Angelo Russell and Stanley Johnson on the court at the same time. It’s a safe bet that scouts from a trio [...]

Was Dayton’s Home-Court Advantage Unfair in Win Over Boise State?

Was Dayton’s Home-Court Advantage Unfair in Win Over Boise State?

The Dayton Flyers squeaked past the Boise State Broncos in the opening round of the 2015 NCAA Tournament, surviving a last-second shot to win 56-55 at University Dayton Arena in Dayton, Ohio. Quite a bit of Dayton involved in that game, huh? Did playing on their home floor provide an unfair advantage for the Flyers, [...]

How the Utah Jazz Won the Trade Deadline Without Adding Immediate Help

How the Utah Jazz Won the Trade Deadline Without Adding Immediate Help

Minutes before the 2015 NBA trade deadline, the Utah Jazz shipped a disgruntled player to a team looking to rid itself of one. “I just didn’t see me as a fit there,” former Jazz forward Enes Kanter told Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman. “I just wanted to go to a different team.” Utah found a [...]

Kevin Love’s Role Has Reached a New Level of Disappointment

Kevin Love’s Role Has Reached a New Level of Disappointment

Shortly after signing LeBron James during the offseason, the Cleveland Cavaliers shipped No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Kevin Love. The acquisition was supposed to make the new-look Cavs a dominant club in the Eastern Conference, though that expectation for immediate success was certainly unfair. Nevertheless, Love’s 2014-15 [...]

Forget About the Loss, Not Andre Drummond

Forget About the Loss, Not Andre Drummond

The Detroit Pistons’ acquisition of Reggie Jackson hasn’t really gone as hoped. Stan Van Gundy’s team has dropped eight straight contests, tumbling to a 23-41 record while falling to the likes of the New York Knicks, Charlotte Hornets and Los Angeles Lakers. Just two weeks after it looked like Detroit could finish off an outstanding [...]

San Antonio Spurs Aren’t Back, but They’re Close

San Antonio Spurs Aren’t Back, but They’re Close

It’s no secret: Throughout the current campaign, the San Antonio Spurs haven’t displayed the same dominance that keyed a convincing run to the 2013-14 NBA championship. Nevertheless, we’ve been waiting for the Spurs to and regain their title-winning form. After all, every player on the roster who logged meaningful playing time last year is still [...]

A Closer Look at the Atlanta Hawks Historical Outburst

A Closer Look at the Atlanta Hawks Historical Outburst

The Atlanta Hawks must’ve entered Monday night’s bout against the Sacramento Kings with something to prove. Mike Budenholzer elected to rest a few starters in the Hawks’ previous game, which turned into a surprising-though-not-shocking 92-84 loss at the hands of the Philadelphia 76ers. “A lot of our guys got to learn and grow,” Budenholzer said [...]

We Can’t Forget to Appreciate Stephen Curry’s Greatness Regularly

We Can’t Forget to Appreciate Stephen Curry’s Greatness Regularly

Greatness doesn’t come around very often. When it does, we sometimes manage to stop appreciating what some athletes are capable of accomplishing on a regular basis. We’ve done it to LeBron James, particularly since “The Decision.” Yeah, he was a hometown hero who carried the Cleveland Cavaliers to the 2007 NBA Finals. Yeah, James bolted [...]
