Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin suffered a nasty cut when he banged heads with Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders during Friday night's NBA game at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Early in the third quarter, Lin and Sanders were chasing down a loose ball on the Rockets defensive end of the court. Lin got to the ball first but the collision with Sanders opened up a cut on...
So the details have finally been released for the Brian Scalabrine challenge vs. all of Boston in a game of 1-on-1. I touched on this in December about Toucher and Rich teaming up with Brian Scalabrine, who is sick of people on the street talking trash to him that they can beat him. The Toucher and Rich One-on-One Scallenge will take place on January 16th as the White Mamba will...
Royce White’s anxiety disorder has been a very public topic as of late.credit: abcnews.com
The Royce White saga is a sad one. We have all been aware of his anxiety condition for a while now, and the Houston Rockets certainly were when they drafted him 16th overall. He has been away from the team pretty much all season, claiming that the organization has not treated him properly...
It seems the shoes of Brian Scalabrine have been filled. Rookie Kent Bazemore may not log a ton of time on the court, in fact he has only played 28 minutes this year, but he dances every game like no one is watching. The 6′ 5″, 201 lbs shooting guard has slowly become a fan favorite for his celebrations on the bench, and we are also now sold on Mr. Bazemore. Check out the incredible...
MILWAUKEE -- After a dunk in the fourth quarter Friday night, Carlos Delfino took a long look back at his former team's bench and smiled. There's no ill-will, he was just having fun.

Chicago outrebounded Miami 48-28. The Bulls had 19 offensive rebounds to four for the Heat.
The Eastern Conference-leading Heat fell to 15-3 at home. Their other home losses came against...
Jeremy Lin‘s from New York, so he’s a tough guy, right?
Well, actually Lin was born in Los Angeles, raised in the Bay Area and spent just one season (albeit a memorable one) playing for the Knicks. Nonetheless, no one’s soon to question the Harvard alum’s toughness after he bounced back from a rough play Friday night.
Near the beginning of the second half of the Houston Rocket’s...
Nothing much to explain here, just Kyrie being Kyrie. Irving is a wizard with the ball, and after he steals a lazy bounce pass from Delfino, he leaves Carlos stuck looking lost after the quick spin move.

They got a good reminder Friday, as Delfino hit five of six 3-point attempts to help the Rockets...
