Dwight Howard Says He’s a Hall of Famer

Dwight Howard Says He’s a Hall of Famer

Dwight Howard may be a shell of his former self, but he’s still very effective. He’ll still alter shot and clog up the lane. This season, he’s averaging 13 points and 13 rebounds for the playoff-bound Hawks. Believe it or not, this is Dwight’s 13th NBA season. And one thing that never goes, is that [...]

John Wall Says DeMarcus Cousins Said He’d Go to Wizards

John Wall Says DeMarcus Cousins Said He’d Go to Wizards

Acquiring DeMarcus Cousins hasn’t exactly guaranteed the Pelicans a playoff spot in the West. There are still some teams ahead of them for 8th in the West. That’s a lot to ask for with less than a month remaining in the regular season. It makes you wonder whether or not he’ll want to remain in [...]

LaMarcus Aldridge Out Indefinitely with Heart Arrhythmia

With Kevin Durant going down with a bum knee, the Spurs were no doubt licking their chops, as the #1 seed in the West seemed to be theirs for the taking.

Brandon Jennings Takes Shot at Knicks

Brandon Jennings Takes Shot at Knicks

It must be a humbling experience to be waived in the middle of an NBA season. No buyout. Just paid to go away. That was the situation with Brandon Jennings last week. Phil Jackson had apparently seen enough, and must’ve figured that Jennings’ $5 million salary doesn’t hurt the bottom line enough to fight over [...]

DeMarcus Cousins Fined $50,000 for Verbal Altercations With Fans

DeMarcus Cousins Fined $50,000 for Verbal Altercations With Fans

New location, same DeMarcus Cousins. As you’d expect, he’s still the same fiery competitor in New Orleans playing alongside Anthony Davis as he was as the focal point in Sacramento. Cousins was hit with a $50,000 for verbal altercations with fans earlier in the week. “Inappropriate language” is what the league is calling it. In [...]
