Pierce on choosing LA: “it was more Sam Cassell than anybody”

Gotta love the Truth. Listen to his response when a member of the Clippers’ media asks him if Doc was the main reason he chose to play in LA. Pierce also says “this is probably the last ride of my career. I think this is where I’m going to end it.” He also uses the word “championship” at least three times. It’s pretty clear he’d love to win another ring before he...

We Need to Realize What’s “Broken” in College Basketball Before We “Fix It”

We are all weak and imperfect beings. Regarding the biannual what’s wrong with college basketball columns: I swore there would be no caving on my end, and that I would not write any more than absolutely necessary, but it looks as though a trip to church to confess some sins might be in order. Here we are, again, debating the merits of shortening the 35-second shot clock to 30....

Amazing how writers act like @ESPN_Colin v @notthefakesvp is really a 'thing'

John Wall's introduction to the NBA was bwo this ridiculous Dougie dance, at the bequest of assistant coach Sam Cassell, back in November of 2010.Colin Cowherd called him out on it. "Much like I called out Greg Oden, I'm gonna call out John Wall....Before the game started, he spent 34 seconds doing the Dougie. That tells me all I need to know about J-Wow.

Lone Wolf. Why I hate KG's return to Minnesota

I've always considered Kevin Garnett's career to be bordering tragic. He's the greatest team player I've ever seen play the game, and dare I say probably the best I'll ever see. Gifted with incredible length and athleticism and fueled by fire (and I've always assumed the sounds of DMX looping internally) Garnett was everything you could ask for. A game changing defensive force, seemingly...

Bulls Look-alikes are the Best Look-alikes

During last night’s Cavs- Bulls game, the SM crew came to a startling conclusion that the Bulls may have the most “unique” looking team in the NBA. No team in the NBA has as many players that you can say, “you know [fill in the blank] really does look like [fill in the blank]” as the Bulls. No qualitative research was officially done to confirm this bold statement, but...
