Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin bought back bad memories for head coach Flip Saunders during Saturday’s game against the Chicago Bulls. After hitting a three to take the lead, Martin emulated Sam Cassell’s dance that he injured himself with. While it was funny to all of us, the NBA wasn’t laughing as they fined Martin $15,000 for it.
Martin now has people reminiscing...
Kevin Martin was fined $15k for doing the infamous Sam Cassell ‘big balls’ dance. Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders is all too familiar with this celebration.
“We lost a championship by that,” Saunders said. “When [Cassell] did that he had an avulsion fracture in his hip. … So, from that perspective, I’ve always been against that type of thing.”

Martin put the T-Wolves up

Way back in the way back, back when I penned (digitally) a weekly NBA draft column for SLAM, I did a series of articles where I “remixed” NBA drafts from years past. With hindsight, how would the order of the players selected in that draft change? Since those articles are disappearing from the internets, I figured it was prime time to redo them with a fresh perspective. Next...

NFL training camp has begun, and my mind is making its transition into full on football mode until early October when the NBA starts picking up steam again. Before I forget about every other sport for a couple months, I think it’s essential to leave basketball talk by playing what I like to call, the “What If” Draft. The “What If” Draft is quite simple actually, and not...
