Raptors fans invade Cleveland

That is right, Raptors fans travel and invaded LeBron James’ kingdom. The players noticed too with DeMar DeRozan telling Mike Ganter of the Toronto Sun: I can’t even explain it, man. It felt like a playoff game, honestly, with our fans being in there, cheering and singing the national anthem. It was just an amazing thing, especially for me. It’s really something for me because...

In a world of Boogie and Brow, what about Marc Gasol?

The early season storyline for big men has been Anthony Davis this and DeMarcus Cousins that. Sure, LeBron James and Chris Paul are still part of the MVP conversation. Kevin Durant has not gotten started and Derrick Rose has had his false starts. Davis and Cousins are it — the guys that have blown everyone away at the beginning of the season. But who has the best record in the...

Why can’t the Pelicans play defense?

Anthony Davis is a stud in the NBA. Its next rising star. Everyone sees this. Everyone sees his soaring blocks and monstrous numbers. His dynamic offensive game that is a mix of speed, size and power with finesse around the rim and an underrated, improving jumper. This is a dominant player in the making that everyone in the NBA will be worry about for the next decade. That goes...

James Harden actually does get defensive

James Harden defense memes are all over the place. It has become the running joke in the NBA. Harden even took time this week to make fun of his own defensive shortcoming. The worst part is that there is still a sense Harden can play defense. On the ball, Harden is not a horrible defender. He just loses his attention off the ball. Thus the memes, videos and perception. Harden is...

At least LeBron James likes playing in Washington

Photo by Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports The Cavaliers’ trip to Washington on Friday was a total loss. John Wall scored 28 points. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving scored 22 points but got little help. The Cavaliers offense produced just 78 points and shot 36.0 percent from the floor. It was an ugly game for the Cavaliers. An ugly, ugly game that continues to show all the flaws the Cavaliers...

Remembering the Malice at the Palace 10 years later

It was around this time a decade ago that the worst fight in NBA history broke out. It was November 19, 2004 to be exact and it as a day that will not be easily forgotten. It is the reason you see so much security at NBA games and the reason that officers are on the court during every timeout and in between quarters. Not only did that fight change the NBA as we know it, but it also...

The Denver Nuggets have become a laughingstock

The Denver Nuggets hired Brian Shaw, the highly sought-after coaching candidate who was an assistant with the Lakers under Phil Jackson, to his first head-coaching job in the NBA last summer with high hopes. At the time, Denver was a team brimming with potential and young, explosive player after another. The roster composition is still basically the same as it was when Shaw signed...

Road trip bringing Clippers together

Two games down, two games won. Maybe that should have been expected for the Los Angeles Clippers starting their seven-game, 11-day trip to the East Coast which started with the two Florida teams. The Magic are still a developing team and the Heat are not quite what they used to be either. These are wins the Clippers should get. Los Angeles though has not quite been itself yet though...

The Malice at the Palace . . . 10 years later

“I don’t think people in the league office ever thought that would happen. Ever since then, they’ve done their best to educate the fans and the players. More than that, they beefed up security. It would be very difficult for that to happen. “I said it to a few people but, fans and players have to understand, fans especially, they’re playing and you’re watching for a reason...

Sorry Mark Cuban, Lakers won’t be bad forever

Tanking in the NBA has been a problem for years – unless you are logical like I am – then you realize tanking is not a problem at all. After all, it is always darkest before the dawn. But it is extremely difficult to label what the Los Angeles Lakers are doing as tanking. Letting a 36-year-old Kobe Bryant shoot 50 times a night is not their plan to lose – surprisingly enough...

Mark Cuban hopes the Lakers suck forever

The Dallas Mavericks owner has never minced his words and has not always been eloquent with them either. This time is no different as he went on “The Fred Roggin Show” and proceeded to wish the worst the Lakers. “As far as the Lakers, I think there’s gonna be a lot of teams that are going to be focusing and saying, ‘Look, I’ve got a ton of cap room — Free Agent A...

On a night of close games, it’s LeBron’s mistake that reigns
