Last night was a long one so we’re slowly getting into the swing of things. While we get ourselves together take a moment to watch a Kevin Durant welcomed Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas into the league by dunking all on his head. Durant had to do this to someone, since it was done to him […]
We’re on record saying that the NBA’s anti-flopping rules probably won’t stop flopping. And maybe deep down, the NBA knows that too. But that hasn’t stopped them from trying everything in their power to deter players from flopping. Part of “trying everything in their power” is posting daily updates on NBA.com of the players that […]
This is not the first time we’ve heard of a NBA owner heckling a player from the crowd. And unlike Donald Sterling heckling his own players, this story is rather amusing. During Sunday’s Mavericks-Bobcats game, former Mav Brendon Haywood was busy having a pretty decent game while dealing with hecklers in the crowd. Haywood was […]
Yes, Kevin Durant is basically seven-feet tall. But no one sees him as a shot blocker. And just in case you need an example of why no one sees him as a shot blocker, Jeff Teague provided that example during Atlanta’s win in Oklahoma on Sunday.
Inside the NBA on TNT pregame show is the king of pregame shows. You can try and dispute that, but there’s really no reason to do so. And a big reason why it’s the king of pregame shows is because of Charles Barkley. Barkley has flourished in his role for the five-time Emmy award winning […]

On one hand, we have seen Blake Griffin take some pretty hard fouls. But on the other, Griffin is known to embellish every now and then when there is a little contact. So when David Lee gave Griffin a shove during Saturday’s Warriors-Clippers game, Griffin embellished on the contact a little and Lee responded by […]
According to Kobe Bryant, it’s perfectly fine for him not to be a happy camper about the Lakers’ 0-2 start. But as for the rest you, it’s not. You are not allowed to analyze or criticize the first two games of the Lakers’ season. And if you do, Bryant has these poignant words for you, […]
At the start of the 4th quarter during Thursday night’s game between the Spurs and Thunder, TNT sideline reporter David Aldridge caught up with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to ask him “how happy he was with the shot selection” of the Spurs. But instead of answering a perfectly fine question from Aldridge, Popovich uses this […]
No one has ever mistaken Rudy Gay for a defensive stopper, but it’s not like he’s J.J. Redick. But Jamal Crawford sure made him look rather Redick-like when he hit him with a hesitation dribble.
