Memphis Grizzlies must upgrade depth this off-season

By signing their key players to contract extensions the past couple of years, the Memphis Grizzlies have a solid starting five.  However, their bench production has been average at best which has held them back a bit.  The Griz need to upgrade the talent behind their starters this off-season, but that will be difficult to do since the team has very little cap flexibility in free...

Cavs Report: Sloan seems to be getting point

A few random observations following the Cavaliers 114-98 loss in San Antonio on Sunday: Donald Sloan is proving to be a pretty decent pickup when it comes to backing up starting point guard Kyrie Irving. Sloan seems to understand when to push things and when to set up the half-court offense, never forcing the tempo. When it comes to the long term, Sloan is probably a better fit...

Box Score: 76ers 103, Cavaliers 87

That’s more like it. It may seem funny feeling ok about a 16 point loss, but in this game the Cavaliers came out and showed some fight, taking just a 4 point deficit into the locker room at the half. Jrue Holliday went off in the 3rd and the Sixers’ talent overtook the Cavaliers, but the Cavaliers at least played hard in this game and showed some pride and spirit in the way they...

On Dan Coughlin, JJ Hickson, Lester Hudson and Luke Harangody

Dan Coughlin wrote a blog for Stepien Rules on Friday. I really can't explain how honored I am by that development without sounding real sentimental and dorky, so I'll just say that I remain very grateful for his time on that. When traditional media was the unequivocal king of sports talk in this town, Dan Coughlin was the star of stars. He still is too. Wherever he goes...

On the Cavs, Tanking and Lester Hudson

"Remember Lester, only make game TYING buzzer beaters" With their the overtime loss to the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night, the Cavs are officially out of the playoff race. This was expected.

Hudsanity in Cleveland

It’s amazing how quickly things can change in the NBA. A few weeks ago, Jeremy Lin was the talk of the town. Linsanity was in full swing. The kid was getting shoe deals, standing ovations in Madison Square Garden and a slew of racist headlines. Times were good. But now, it’s like no one knows he even exists anymore. Go under the knife for a necessary knee surgery and your celebrity...

There’s something about an unsung hero that makes winning extremely satisfying. Maybe it’s the surprise of it all.

On February 6, the shorthanded New York Knicks topped the Utah Jazz at home. The team’s two best players were inactive, dealing with various issues ranging from personal to health. The hero of the day — and subsequent weeks — was a hardwood vagabond, a scrappy guard who had been bounced from multiple NBA franchises, left to trudge through the murk and muck of the NBDL.
