Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics have retired too many numbers

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The retired numbers are a growing issue, although many new Celtics won’t admit that. Many of those considered to be prime numbers — 1, 2, 3, 10, 21, 22, 23, 32, 33 — are retired, leaving some of the Celtics...

Do the Mavs have a diamond in the rough in Dwight Powell?

The Dallas Mavericks' trade for Rajon Rondo last season didn't work out as planned, but there's hope that some of the deal can be salvaged yet.  Dwight Powell, a second-round pick in the 2014 draft, was included as essentially a throw-in by the Boston Celtics in the Rondo trade. After a successful Summer League where he flashed real potential, however, Powell may end up playing...

The Second Coming of Curry: Why Seth Curry has a Chance to Stick with the Sacramento Kings

Seth Curry’s last name by itself should be enough for the 24-year-old baller to get a shot in the NBA. His brother, Steph, is the league’s reigning MVP and catalyst for the world champion Golden State Warriors. His father, Dell, played 16 NBA seasons and made more than 40 percent of his three-point shot attempts over that span. However, the name wasn’t enough until the skills...

Sacramento Kings: Is there room for Seth Curry and Quincy Acy?

Quincy Acy and Rajon Rondo with their former teams. It has been a busy offseason for the Sacramento Kings. They have made a lot of changes thus far. The Kings will have a very different roster going into the 2015-’16 season. They have signed some notable names this offseason as opposed to the players they let go.

Should Avery Bradley be the next Celtics captain?

The Boston Celtics have never gone a season without having a captain. Since the departure of Rajon Rondo, a replacement has not been named.Brad Stevens did not name official captains for his Butler teams, and seems to have preferred developing leadership naturally rather than by declaring a leader preseason. I like the idea of this year Celtics not having a captain. It would be symbolic...

Bidding Against Yourself: Free Agent Deals that Exceeded the Market

What can be difficult to remember in free agency is that players on bad contracts aren't necessarily bad players. It could just be that their contract for a specific team at a specific time outweighs their on-court contributions. All three of the players I'm about to discuss are good NBA players—they deserve their spots in the league. What I'm not sure about, though, is if the...

Grading the Knicks Free Agent Signings

Just as the draft went for the Knicks and their fans, the free agency period felt the same way, underwhelming. When free agency started names like Deandre Jordan, Paul Milsap, Rajon Rondo, Demare Carroll and Lou Williams were brought up. However, we got none of those players or any of the other marque names on the free agency list. Despite that, New York had a solid off-season and...

The Denver Nuggets and the Ty Lawson saga

Obviously, that did not happen as Lawson is still a Nugget and the Kings have since signed free agent point guard Rajon Rondo. What brings Lawson back into the news again, is unfortunately...

Why the Sacramento Kings will make the playoffs in 2016

Marco Belinelli The Sacramento Kings have had a busy yet exciting off-season so far. They have made some drastic roster changes and they aren’t done yet. Their off-season began a bit shaky with rumors of DeMarcus Cousins being on the trading block. His status isn’t yet quite clear, but it’s safe to assume Cousins will not be traded. With that being said, the Kings have been...

Five unpopular NBA free agency opinions

The overriding narrative of free agency has been the prevalence of competence. Star players are ignoring big markets and superstar teammates in favor of organizational forethought. Free agents are ignoring the Knicks and Lakers because they’re the last two teams (well … until the Nets get left alone on the dance floor next summer) that seem to think those things matter. Players...

Sacramento Kings: how they attacked the offseason

Sacramento may have had the potential, but because they were in...
