The NBA needs to leave 'hack-a-whoever' rules alone

There’s conversation going on in NBA circles regarding the intentional fouling of poor free-throw shooters in playoff games. Some of that conversation is going on right here at this site. My colleague Matt Zemek makes the case that allowing “Hack-A-Player” strategies rewards the breaking of the rules and should be eliminated. I disagree on two fronts. First, I am adamantly...

Things Falling Into Place for a Wizards’ Finals Run

The conference semifinals are underway and only two teams have yet to lose a game this postseason. One is the Golden State Warriors — the league’s best team during the regular season — and the other was the fifth seed in the lowly Eastern Conference, the Washington Wizards.

Maybe Austin Rivers is good at basketball

You clicked me? Don’t duck out yet. This is a (kind of) serious column about Austin Rivers possibly going from being just above bad to possibly good. It isn’t clickbait, I promise. Austin Rivers is only 22 years old. I think we forget that. There was a time when being so young meant we would not judge someone’s NBA career so harshly this early in the process. Whether it...

What’s next for the San Antonio Spurs?

Trying to figure out the future of the San Antonio Spurs is currently an impossible process. It needs to be done in the manner of when you get the DVD of a movie and have multiple alternate endings. San Antonio’s 2014-2015 season came to a heartbreaking end, losing Game Seven of its first-round series to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. It was a somewhat unusual...

Eliminate Hack-A-Player: Don't reward violating sports rules

Yes, it’s convenient that we’re writing about Hack-A-Player at this specific point in time. Yet, the argument against allowing the practice existed far before the 2015 NBA Playoffs. Even before the Hack-A-(DeAndre) Jordan employed by the San Antonio Spurs over the past two weeks; even before Monday night’s sorry spectacle of the Hack-A-Jordan dueling with the Hack-A-(Dwight...

Pippen shocked Bulls’ Noah blows easy layup

Ohhhhh soooo close! Bulls legend Scottie Pippen was at the Cavs-Bulls Game 1 semifinals match to lend his support but maybe for at least one play, he wished he didn’t go. Joakim Noah found himself under the rim, all alone, with ball in hand, open for a layup. Easy hoop right? Wrong! Noah blows the layup and Pippen is disgusted. https://giant.gfycat.com/FriendlyConfusedEasternglasslizard...

Conflict Of Interest With A Twist: Mark Jackson Should Stop Being Assigned To Golden State Games

Relationships, when they end for reasons other than death, do not generally end on great terms. If the parties involved got along so well that their break would be completely reasonable and without resentment, chances are there wouldn’t be a need for the split in the first place. This applies to nearly all relationships in life — even when an NBA franchise fires a coach. This...

Politically Incorrect Basketball Statements: Let’s Be Honest — The Warriors Are Preparing for the Western Conference Finals

I realize, having spent most of my life following and covering sports, that what I’m about to write is very politically incorrect. Playoffs are decided in series, and series consist of anywhere from four to seven games between the same two teams to determine one of two things: 1) the better team, or 2) the team which gets the benefit of the last bad call (see “Clippers, L.A....

Wizards deserve credit for win, but don't read too much into it

Not every outcome of a game has to have some everlasting, mythic, and truly meaningful story to come out of it. Sometimes it is what it is, and what that can be is what exactly it was — one result of one specific game. People are going to ask the question, though: What does Washington’s upset over Atlanta mean? Well, why does it have to mean anything? Can’t it just be a...

In game six, Korver was running free and throwing daggers through the Nets as he went 5 of...

Western Conference Semifinal: Grizzlies-Warriors Series Preview
