Kevin Love Says He’s Committed to Cavs ‘Long Term’

Kevin Love Says He’s Committed to Cavs ‘Long Term’

Kevin Love isn’t going to pull a LeBron James in Cleveland. The Cleveland Cavaliers showed off their fancy new stretch-forward toy on Tuesday. To no one’s surprise the spectacle was met with immeasurable fanfare and crazy-ass hype. The deal everyone had been waiting for to be officially done is finally done. Love is actually a [...]

The Importance of Joel Embiid’s Twitter Musings

The Importance of Joel Embiid’s Twitter Musings

Joel Embiid is a funny guy. Excuse me, kid. That’s what 20-year-olds are: kids. Embiid definitely has the body of a man, and he’ll be expected to conduct himself like a man, but 20-year-olds are, at their core, kids still trying to find their way. That’s what Embiid is. That’s what his Twitter account represents. [...]

J.R. Smith Wants to ‘Be a Leader’ for Knicks

J.R. Smith Wants to ‘Be a Leader’ for Knicks

Never say J.R. Smith doesn’t have goals. Conventional goals, mind you. Not aspirations to open up his own chocolate factory that’s managed by Willy Wonka and a platoon of Oompa Loompas. Not hopes of one day building and living in a house made of beef jerky, cheese and ranch dressing. Actual, basketball-related goals that demand [...]

NBA Media and Fans Have a Silly ‘Coming Home’ Addiction

NBA Media and Fans Have a Silly ‘Coming Home’ Addiction

Chill. Let’s all just chill. You, me, the person to your left, your right, the kid from your high school who used to play pocket billiards in the back of math class, the tighty-whitey-clad cowboy who plays acoustic guitar on the corner of busy streets and the guy behind me who smells of fetid cheese [...]

Suns Might Be Pursuing Eric Bledsoe Sign-and-Trade

Suns Might Be Pursuing Eric Bledsoe Sign-and-Trade

This Eric Bledsoe drama just won’t end. With the relationship between Mini LeBron and the Phoenix Suns having apparently soured, Bled’s restricted free agency has gone from formality to perplexing puzzle. Will he accept the Suns’ four-year, $48 million offer? Or will he take their $3.7 million qualifying offer, play through next season and become [...]

Adam Silver Calls Playing for Team USA a ‘Big Risk’

Adam Silver Calls Playing for Team USA a ‘Big Risk’

Adam Silver only speaks the truth. Less than a year into his tenure as NBA commissioner, Silver has not held back. From wanting to impose a new draft age limit to banning super-sized shitbag Donald Sterling for good, he’s shot straight from the hip, never shying away from the big decisions or questions. Talking about [...]

Greg Monroe ‘Sought’ Trade to Thunder, Blazers

Greg Monroe ‘Sought’ Trade to Thunder, Blazers

Greg Monroe has apparently been doing anything and everything he can to escape the Detroit Pistons. Accepting Detroit’s qualifying offer—like he’s supposed to do—reeks of doubt and distrust and potential disgust. Rather than secure his financial future, he’ll likely play through next season at a ridiculous discount so he can explore unrestricted free agency in [...]

The Rajon Rondo Trade Rumor Mill Thickens, But Not Really

The Rajon Rondo Trade Rumor Mill Thickens, But Not Really

Ugh. Just when you think Rajon Rondo trade rumors are dead for the time being, they’re revived, but not really. Consider what follows to be a lesson in recycling. T-Spence, a sports radio host, tweeted this: It created some buzz, but not much. BasketballInsiders.com picked it up…I think: Don’t bother clicking on the link. It’s [...]

Jim Boeheim Thinks Melo Would Have Left Knicks If Not for Phil Jackson

Jim Boeheim Thinks Melo Would Have Left Knicks If Not for Phil Jackson

Jim Boeheim’s latest verbal foray into Carmelo Anthony’s free-agency decision is going to make Phil Jackson blush. The Syracuse head coach was exceedingly vocal leading up to Anthony’s free agency and recurrently admitted he wanted the All-Star forward to sign somewhere he could win. But Anthony signed in New York, where he’s not going to [...]

Coach K Says D-Rose is ‘One of the Best Guys in the Whole World’

Coach K Says D-Rose is ‘One of the Best Guys in the Whole World’

There are (roughly) 7,045,999,999 in this world who can’t touch Derrick Rose in Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s eyes. The Team USA head coach has strong feelings for the Chicago Bulls point guard. Very strong feelings. So strong, players at Duke might want to start taking offense. Speaking on Rose’s progression and his personality, Coach K threw a [...]
