Today’s Hornets-Heat Game 7 was briefly interrupted by a young interloper

Game 7 between the Charlotte Hornets and the Miami Heat was a microcosm for the entire first round of the NBA playoffs. Even in a series that was back and forth, the games themselves were not that competitive. The Heat were the superior team from the opening tip, and sent the Hornets home on a 106-73 beatdown. Although the game itself was hardly competitive, there was still an interesting...

The inevitable-seeming Jeff Van Gundy hire for the Rockets would be a bad idea

Maybe there's a curveball here, but the stars look to be aligning. When Adrian Wojnarowski reported yesterday that Jeff Van Gundy was at the top of the Rockets' head coaching candidates list, I was mildly surprised. Not because he's on the list, but rather his position at the pole. The last time JVG coached in the league was in Houston a decade ago, and those of us who are old...

The Wolves' most consequential decision

As the recently deposed Sam Hinkie can tell you, rebuilds depend on brainpower and vision, but in the end, luck decides a lot. Hinkie lost his bottoming out gambit in part because he didn't seem to understand the dysfunction he would cultivate by treating players like spreadsheet figures and a basketball team like an asset farm, but he also suffered at the hands of the lottery ping...

The 2015-16 NBA season for the Minnesota Timberwolves went about as well as everyone thought it would.  Many thought the Wolves would improve from the 16 wins they had from the season before, but they were too young and experienced to contend for a playoff spot.  This turned out to be true, even after the Wolves started the season 8-8, as it was obvious they lacked the consistency...
