Shaq talks about the evolution of NBA centers

Former NBA great Shaquille O’Neal stands at seven-foot-one, and weighs approximately 324 pounds, and when he played the game, that was the norm for big men across the league. But the game has changed immensely. Just like in the NFL, where weighing well over 320 pounds used to be common among defensive linemen, NBA centers have slimmed down and are now more athletic.

Are the Lakers ready to trade Roy Hibbert?

It sounds like the Los Angeles Lakers are ready to move on from center Roy Hibbert. Hibbert has been with the team for all of one season, sure, but the Lakers sit at 9-34 with the main goal being to show off Kobe Bryant over the course of his farewell tour and lose enough games to add another franchise centerpiece next offseason. None of the above is really a surprise, though Hibbert...

Steph Curry aggravates shin injury, won’t sit out any games

The Golden State Warriors have been nearly unbeatable this season, posting the best record in the Association at 33-2. The driving factor behind that success is point guard Steph Curry.

Roy Hibbert lost 15 lbs. to play faster, more minutes

The NBA is getting smaller and smaller each season.As a 7-2 behemoth, Roy Hibbert's game and skill set conflict with the current trends, making him somewhat of a dying species among NBA players. Size will always be a premium in the league, so it's not as if Hibbert is at all at risk of losing his job. But playing a plodding center who isn't dominant offensively can take its toll...
