Maybe DeMarcus Cousins wouldn't fit in Boston after all?

Is Cousins exactly what the Celtics need? Ed Szczepanski USA TodayThe Boston Celtics need a franchise star, and DeMarcus Cousins appears to be the most readily available option. He's obviously a very good player with surreal talent and innumerable physical gifts. But not all is well. Cousins grates on teammates and coaches. He's highly temperamental, and that means Boston may be...

The Revival Of Detroit’s Powerful Pistons

The team was once a dynasty. Led by the consistent core group of players like Ben Wallace, Rasheed Wallace, Richard “Rip” Hamilton, Chauncey Billups, and Tayshaun Prince, the Detroit Pistons of the early 2000s were a model of consistency in the ever-changing landscape of the NBA. For six consecutive seasons, from the 2002-03 season until the 2007-08 season, the Pistons owned...

Motor City’s New Hope

The Detroit Pistons were one of the most dominant teams at several points in NBA History. Isaiah Thomas and the “Bad Boys” made their mark as the most controversial team to ever set foot on the court and backed up the hype with two straight titles in 1989 and 1990. At the top of the new millennium, former bad boy Joe Dumars and Detroit’s front office built the strongest team...

Happy birthday, Sheed! Wallace's age catches up to tech record

We're all familiar with the various bejeweled monikers of milestone anniversaries. 50 years of marriage or reign from a throne or what have you is golden; 75 years is diamond. If you don't quite make it that far, 25 years is silver. Oh, and if you know a couple who's been married for a while -- but not that long -- tin was the traditional gift for a 10th wedding anniversary. Really...

What if the 00′ Blazers hadn’t blown a 15 point lead against LA in Game 7?

After trailing three games to one in the 2000 Western Conference Finals the Trailblazers stormed back to win both Games 5 and 6 to set up a pivotal Game 7 at Staples Center. The Lakers had come up short in both 1997 (Swept by Utah in the Conference Finals) and 1998 (Lost to San Antonio in the Conference Semi Finals)  and now faced their biggest embarrassment in the postseason of...

Check Out Glen Perkins’ Sweet New Goalie Mask

I’m not sure who started the trend of awarding themselves (or a teammate) a WWE-style championship belt after a job well done…but I think it was four-time NBA All-Star Rasheed Wallace. Over the years, the tradition has gotten so mainstream, that the sports entertainment giants have even gotten involved. In 2013, following their Cy Young Aaward winning seasons, both Max Scherzer...

Flashback Friday: Remembering the Los Angeles Lakers Game 7 Comeback Against the Portland Trailblazers

It’s crazy to think that the infamous Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trailblazers game 7 from the 2001 NBA Playoffs was 14 years ago. I’m not a Laker fan by any means, but I feel that this one of the greatest comebacks in NBA Playoff history. A lot of people fail to realize how deep that Portland Trailblazers team was during that time. Led by Rasheed Wallace, Damon Stoudamire...

Portland Trail Blazers Can Use 2015 Free Agency To Atone For 2004 NBA Draft

Entering the 2004 NBA Draft, the Portland Trail Blazers’ roster was a hot mess a work in progress. Rip City had an unreal 24 players suit up that year—a year in which the team finished 10th in the Western Conference. That season, the Blazers finally dealt Rasheed Wallace, but more change was on the horizon. Damon Stoudamire was entering his last year on Portland’s books, and...
