Kings ready to shut down DeMarcus Cousins

With nine games left in the season, the Sacramento Kings are strongly considering shutting down star center DeMarcus Cousins. The Kings aren’t even close to making the playoffs with a 26-47 record in the West so there’s no reason to risk more injuries to Cousins and take the chance of a harsher injury that could make him miss some of next season. Cousins has had calf, thigh...

Atlanta’s Korver was En Fuego

How did he not win the 2015 NBA Three-Point Shootout? The Hawks’ Kyle Korver put on a shooting display from deep versus the Bucks as he nailed four three-pointers in a row.

The East’s Race for 8th: Who Has the Edge?

The race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference is the NBA’s most tightly contested postseason race as four teams sit within a game and a half of the No. 8 spot.

The Boston Celtics currently hold the...

Tim Duncan, Defensive Player of the Year, and weaving award narratives

Let me start by saying Tim Duncan has been my favorite basketball player since I was flipping through Sports Illustrated Kids magazine each month as a boy. A life size poster of Timmy presides over my bed at my parent’s house, his simple expression and broad shoulders guarding my bedroom like a heavy-set bouncer at a Manhattan hookah bar. He’s been my favorite player for a number...

Blake Griffin with the 180 degree… block?

Clippers’ Blake Griffin is know for dunking the ball and even breaking out the 180 degree block from time to time. But how about a 180 degree block from Blake! Well Griffin did just that versus Boston’s Jonas Jerebko as he was going up for a layup and though he was in the clear for an easy bucket after pump faking Blake. However, Blake would have none of that as he spun in the...

As if getting shoved aside and falling on the court wasn’t bad enough, OKC’s Steven Adams received some injury on top of insult.

WATCH: Enes Kanter embraces boos in return to Utah

There is nothing I love more than a good villain, because without them, the world would be pretty boring. With that said, when Enes Kanter kinda-sorta force his way out of Utah at the NBA Trade Deadline this year, one might not expect the Salt Lake City faithful to welcome back the former Kentucky Wildcat with open arms. Here is the video of what transpired: The “Let Me Hear...

What to Make of Dwight Howard’s Comments on Kobe Bryant and James Harden

Even though Dwight Howard has been one of the most dominant centers of his era, at 29 years old, what most NBA fans and analysts will talk about years after he’s retired is what surrounded Howard off the floor; the “Dwightmare” saga in Orlando, the “This Is Going To Be Fun” team in Los Angeles Lakers, his partnership-turned-rivalry with Kobe Bryant and now his new role...

Chris Paul puts on a dribbling clinic against 76ers

The Clippers’ Chris Paul is really good with the basketball. Paul and L.A. visited the lowly Sixers and CP3 decided he’d show the fans in the stands what dribbling is all about when he sliced up the Sixers’ defense and even did some trickery with the ball. Seriously, how did he do that last move with the ball? I’m baffled. http://giant.gfycat.com/AnotherIcyBilby.webm The...

Blake Griffin does a great Austin Rivers impersonation

I guess being the head coach’s son doesn’t protect you from being the target of Blake Griffin. During a recent Clippers practice, Griffin was caught on film making fun of Austin Rivers, the son of head coach Doc Rivers. Griffin pulled out all the stops including the head jerking, Rivers’ dribbling style and even Austin’s “shooting technique.” A video posted by matt_barnes9...

Pelicans browing out gracefully

New Orleans wasn’t supposed to make the playoffs. The West didn’t appear to have any playoff vacancies, and if an outsider did crack the conference’s Top 8 slots, the best odds belonged to the Suns, not the Pelicans, considering that Phoenix missed the postseason with 48 wins a season ago. Yes, the Pelicans have Anthony Davis, coming off the breakout summer with Team USA we...

Mourning confirms Mutombo ‘Who wants to sex Mutombo’ story

Former NBA big man Dikembe Mutombo was a great shot-blocker and one hell of a pick up artist with his legendary pick-up line, “Who wants to sex Mutombo?” But is it true? Is it mere rumor or is it actually truth? His former teammate, Alonzo Mourning, came clean about that legendary line and confirmed is it 100 percent true despite Mutombo’s denials. As funny as that line is...

Bucks’ Carter-Williams’ lob attempt is legendary

This lob attempt by the Bucks’ Michael Carter-Williams should be shown at each and every basketball camp to demonstrate how not to toss lobs.

Instead, MCW’s pass sailed way over Bayless’ head and even hit the...
