Feast your eyes on some of the sickest crossovers the Summer league gave us.

Jason Whitlock fires a shot at Canada basketball, Andrew Wiggins

Jason Whitlock likes to click-bait and offend anyone with sweeping generalizations that fit his storylines. It is pretty stupid. So let us all laugh at Whitlock’s baseless criticisms of Canadians, Andrew Wiggins and their growing basketball culture from his appearance on Olbermann: [h/t Josh Gold-Smith of Awful Announcing]

Donald Sterling may need to sell Clippers to pay debts, keep Doc Rivers

The Donald Sterling saga will not end. A few weeks ago, Sterling was in court fighting his estranged(?) wife for control of the trust which owns the Clippers. No decision was made as of yet and so Steve Ballmer and the Clippers are kept in limbo. This delay and questions about the Clippers’ future, as well as the Sterlings’ involvement with the organization, are causing two major...

Kobe Bryant approves of Lakers’ offseason

The Lakers had such dreams for the offseason. Even with Kobe Bryant coming off a season where he played all of six games before injuries to his knee forced him out for the remainder of the season. He still signed a two-year extension worth $48.5 million. That will tie the Lakers cap up somewhat to Bryant for the foreseeable future. When it came time to hitting free agency this summer...

J.R. Smith gets posterized at Drew League

LeBron James apologizes to neighbors with cupcakes

In the lead up to LeBron James’ decision to return to Cleveland, it was chaos in his suburban neighborhood. As it became clearer that James was seriously considering a return to Cleveland, fans flocked to his house in Bath, Ohio, to wait out James (who was not there) and celebrate or burn his image in effigy (again). It was probably some sort of code or homeonwer’s association...

Sorry Eric and Greg, NBA free agency money drying up

Being a restricted free agent sucks. The last two major pieces of free agency this summer have been stuck in a holding pattern because of restricted free agency. Potential suitors have been scared off of Greg Monroe and Eric Bledsoe knowing full well the Pistons and Suns are likely to match any offer they would receive. So Monroe and Bledsoe, two borderline all stars potentially...

#Wizards alternate jerseys are LIKE THAT. pic.twitter.com/K13Kaj1f6X — A. Sharif (@Abdu11ah) July 22, 2014 Have to love the Wizards’ new look from the past three years. This alternate, a cleaner blue look that maintains the red, white and blue motif, is pretty sharp.

Charles Barkley can use some golf lessons

When Charles Barkley was lacing up his sneakers in the NBA, there was no doubt he was one of the greatest to ever play the game. But when it comes to his golf game, well that’s a different story. Barkley teed off at the Tahoe for the American Century Championship where he showed the world how NOT to play golf. You know, one-handed swings, the wrong form, and much more. Check it out.

Experience helps Summer Leaguers grow

Making it to the “big show” of the NBA is nice. Everyone wants to stay there obviously. Life on the fringes does not make that task easy. Usually a young player just on the edge of falling into or out of the NBA has to prep up for a grueling tour through Summer League to cement that roster spot. Experience is key. It gives a hunger to get back there and a knowledge of what it...

NBA weighing putting Finals on TNT

“In a twist, the NBA may look to split up the NBA Finals between the two media companies, so that the championship round games would air on channels belonging to both, the people familiar with the matter said. That could take various forms: The networks could alternate Finals coverage each year, or carve up the Finals—played as the best-of-seven—in a given year.” –Sharon...

The ESPYs’ host is always one for jumping on the bandwagon and used his monologue to poke fun at the then-Pacers guard. Stephenson can blow his way all the way to the bank as he just signed a new four...

How will Heat adjust?

“Win projection, neutral schedule (2014′s strength of schedule): 43.2 (44.9) Offensive efficiency: -0.4 (-0.4) Defensive efficiency: -1.2 (-1.9) Miami drops nearly ten wins from the season before thanks to an imploding offense. They actually improve on defense due to switching LeBron with Luol Deng (LeBron’s defensive marks were mediocre last season) and (most likely given...
