Melo Wants to Be a Facilitator in Knicks’ New Offense

Melo Wants to Be a Facilitator in Knicks’ New Offense

All this time we thought Carmelo Anthony was born to score. We were wrong. He was really a point guard-hopeful trapped in the body of a forward, gifted with the offensive chops of an unabashed, inside-out, 20-plus-shots-per-night chucker. But after 11 years of shooting and scoring, more shooting and scoring, and more shooting and scoring [...]

News broke Tuesday that the NBA had finalized the $2 billion sale of the Clippers to Ballmer, the former Microsoft CEO: Once again, it’s about damn time. This, truthfully, couldn’t have been done any sooner. Not really. The [...]

Kobe Took Anthony Davis ‘Under His Wing’ At 2012 Olympics

Kobe Took Anthony Davis ‘Under His Wing’ At 2012 Olympics

Kobe Bryant and Anthony Davis couldn’t seem more different off the court. One is a ruthless competitor, a vociferous murderer of rivals and rims, and championship-ring-bearing lunatic…in a good way. The other is a silent, rather stoic and shy workhorse with the versatility and wingspan necessary to do just about anything he wants. They’re different. [...]

Pacers Interested in Trading for Greg Monroe

Pacers Interested in Trading for Greg Monroe

Losing Paul George has apparently clouded the Indiana Pacers’ sense of logical and illogical. According Detroit Sports 105.1′s Matt Dery, the Pacers are still shopping Roy Hibbert and have their sights sets on the Detroit Pistons’ Greg Monroe: This is—one of my favorite, most frequently used words incoming—weird. Some people might even call it stupid, [...]

It’s something we’ve been saying since LeBron James returned to Cleveland. Love is coming, Andrew Wiggins is going, the Cavaliers are a superteam. Stuff is getting real, even if it isn’t real. [...]

Kevin Durant Withdraws From Team USA’s World Cup Roster

Wiggins May Not Have Known Cavs Traded Him for K-Love

As if Andrew Wiggins’ life wasn’t already oceans of awkward. Kevin Love has been traded from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski. But he hasn’t really been traded, because Wiggins himself cannot be traded until August 23 after signing his rookie deal. So the deal is done, but [...]

KD Will Reportedly Leave Nike for Under Armour

KD Will Reportedly Leave Nike for Under Armour

Less than two years from now, when Kevin Durant is a free agent and he’s spouting off party lines about money not mattering, believe him. Because money won’t matter. Or at least it shouldn’t. Not after he leaves Nike for a fatter than fat shoe deal with Under Armour. Per InsideMDSports’ Jeff Ermann: He’s kidding, [...]

According to RealGM’s Shams Charania, the Pacers are in play for veteran swingman Shawn Marion: Indy’s interest comes after George suffered an open tibia-fibula fracture in his right leg, basically erasing all [...]
