Trade Ready: The Lance Stephenson Conundrum

The Charlotte Hornets appear to already be suffering from buyer’s remorse after signing Lance Stephenson to what looked like on the surface, at least, as a team-friendly deal worth $18 million over a span of two years (with Lance hitting the market again after the new TV deals kick in). But as of this moment, no trade appears to be imminent for the former Indiana Pacer. In less...

Suns’ Dragic weighs in on Rondo in the West

  It was the first big NBA trade as Boston traded point guard Rajon Rondo to Dallas thus making the West just that much more stacked. From other guards such as Tony Parker, Chris Paul, Stephen Curry, and Russell Westbrook, with Rajon in the West, it just proves the conference is the toughest one in the league.

How To: Fix The Knicks

Charity is a helluva drug. I might be hopped up on something for wanting to discuss this train wreck a.k.a. the New York Knicks.

Sun Setting On Goran Dragic In Phoenix?

It was the December of break-ups — or at least potential break-ups. The trade whispers began to swirl earlier than usual this year, and it all seemed like a bunch of hoopla until Danny Ainge decided to take that leap of faith and deal Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks. What did the Boston Celtics get in return? Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder, Brandan Wright and a couple of draft...

Isaiah Thomas is not a Pablo Prigioni fan after his flop

The Knicks played the Suns Saturday and it is now safe to say that Isaiah Thomas is not a fan of Pablo Prigioni. The Italian guard did his best Manu Ginobili impression and flopped on Thomas. Needless to say, IT didn’t take that well and had some choice words for him. Thomas would get the last word as he ended up with 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting while Prigioni finished with...

No one wants Lance Stephenson

Is Kevin Durant Under Appreciated?

The biggest news coming from the Thunder – Warriors matchup last night is that Thunder forward Kevin Durant suffered what appeared to be a gruesome ankle sprain. What many people are forgetting, or may have not even noticed is that, prior to injury, Kevin Durant was able to score 30 points in just 20 minutes. With very little coverage on the topic, is it possible the 2014 NBA MVP...
