10 of the most infamous NBA coach-player feuds

One of the unique things about the sport of basketball is how closely players and their head coaches work together. Sometimes the proximity of that relationship forges a bond between a player and coach that can last a lifetime and enrich the lives of both individuals. Other times, it goes completely haywire, such as reports that LeBron James had a large hand in the ouster of David...

Larry Brown: I could fix the 76ers in five minutes

If former Philadelphia 76ers head coach Larry Brown had his way, he and franchise legend Allen Iverson would help turn around the organization — and Brown thinks he could do it today. Jon Marks of Sheridan Hoops notes Brown said he’d only need five minutes to turn around Philadelphia, who should reach out to its best player of the recent generation. “I’m sick of what’s...

Wash, Rinse, Repeat; Hornets Blow Yet Another Lead

My birthday present to my mom was to take her to a Hornets game.  Her birthday is Friday, so I wanted to take her to Wednesday’s Hornets game against the Phoenix Suns.  We have gone to Hornets games since before they were Bobcats and Hornets again, so that is always a great gift to give, and share. I’ve been pretty harsh on the players lately as to who should be traded.  If...

Henderson yet to take advantage of extended playing time with Hornets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It appears that Gerald Henderson will be spending his time with the Charlotte Hornets the exact same way it started when he was drafted by the then Bobcats in 2009. Back in his rookie season, under the guide of head coach Larry Brown; Henderson rarely saw the court in playing just over eight minutes a game. Rarely did he play in meaningful moments. But then Brown...

In the NBA, coaching carousal taking unsightly spins

This is utter insanity. Seriously. How else can we describe what's taking place in the NBA? Coaches lose, and they get fired. Coaches win, and they get fired, too. Coaches are handed teams that resemble something along the lines of a D-League club in purple and gold (that means you, Los Angeles Lakers), and guess what? Those coaches get fired. Maurice Cheeks didn't even last his...

The Starting Five: Game-changing edition

While Adam Silver attempts to fix the NBA, let's begin this week's episode of The Starting Five. SHOULD 'NIQUE BE QUIET? Well, he might want to consider typing a bit less often. In a flurry of tweets provoked by LeBron James' 61-point salvo against the Bobcats this week, NBA great Dominque Wilkins basically indicated that what LBJ did was no big deal.

Joakim Noah credits his All-Star bid to D.J. Augustin

I’ve been following D.J. Augustin’s career for some time now. From his state championship winning days at Brother Martin High School in New Orleans, to his time alongside Kevin Durant at Texas in which he averaged 14 ppg in 2006, and now to his underwhelming professional career. I cannot actually say that Augustin’s NBA career thus far has been a failure. However, the player...
