John Wall and Liam Neeson team up for awesome Christmas Day games promo

Many people know Liam Neeson from his role in Taken and being a general bad-ass in almost every movie he’s been in since 2008 (when Taken was first released). Well, ESPN took advantage of that and paired him up with a rising star in his own right, John Wall in one of their promotions for the Christmas Day games. Of course ESPN has the TV rights for those games and it’s a good...

Evan Turner compared himself to Jesus

Religion and sports go hand and hand, no matter how many people try to keep them separate. But they usually don’t come together in the way Evan Turner brought them together after the Celtics’ 105-87 win over the Sixers on Monday night. Turner, the second overall pick in the 2010 Draft by Philadelphia, came off the bench for Boston on Monday, scoring 12 points, dishing out six...

Ola Oladipo: Promising guard is blossoming in year two and providing some Magic along the way

When Orlando opted to start Victor Oladipo at point guard last season — en route to a 23-59 mess — it was interpreted by many as pragmatism, an attempt to better its chances of winning the 2014 NBA Lottery. Oladipo is not a traditional lead guard, and as a rookie surrounded by an uninspiring roster, the former Hoosier suffered a mediocre debut filled with turnovers and missed...

What exactly is going on in Sacramento?

With the 2014-15 NBA season a fourth of the way completed, time is running out for head coaches leading underachieving squads, like, Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans for instance, but essentially nobody expected the proverbial hourglass to be empty for Sacramento Kings head coach Mike Malone.

Marco Belinelli in a rap video? Yes please!

He can knock down threes with ease and now it seems Spurs’ Marco Belinelli can also make great rap video cameos. I do not speak Italian but from what I can gather from the video, Marco seems to be the center of attention of this song. From his standing in the background bobbing his head, on the court taking shots at the rim to Belinelli lip syncing, this video has it all (h/t Project...

The Pistons are really bad and there’s no end in sight

It’s no secret that the Detroit Pistons have been a trainwreck for the past seasons as a casualty of a strangely constructed roster—loaded with talent, but lacking in any sort of basketball chemistry. That losing culture was supposed to change, at least somewhat, this season due to the team’s offseason hiring of veteran coach Stan Van Gundy. However, it has remained exactly...

Spurs’ “Awkward Dad Dance Cam” is awesome

What better way to embarrass children than to have their dad dance so awkward and have video of it being shown to over 15,000 people in an NBA arena. Well that’s exactly what the Spurs did as they recently trotted out the “Awkward Dad Dance Cam,” and from the look of the video below, it is over-the-top awkward.

Everybody on the Knicks hates each other

The New York Knicks stink. At 4-19, only the Pistons and Sixers have a worse record than them in the entire NBA. The Phil Jackson era doesn’t look much different from the pre-Jackson era. And of course, everyone on the team hates each other and coach Derek Fisher. This ESPN New York piece by Chris Broussard highlights the discord, which includes an on the court conflict between...

Whoops! Recently, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, took in Cavs game and afterwards, got to meet the “King” himself, LeBron James. However, during a photo-op, James put his arm around Kate which apparently is something one doesn’t do overseas.

At 7-5, one would think… no expect a basketball player to patrol the paint and block and shot attempt at or near the rim. Well that’s exactly what 7-5 Sim Bhullar did in his debut game for the D-League’s Reno Bighorns blocking a whopping 6 shots against the LA Defenders.

Pacers’ Mahinmi out 6-8 weeks

As if losing their cornerstone player, Paul George, to a devastating season-ending leg injury, now comes word big man Ian Mahinmi will be sidelined for up to 8 weeks with a foot injury. Indiana announced in a press release that Ian suffered a torn plantar fascia.

When Belinelli nails a three, Spurs bench rubs their bellies

I have seen some odd ball celebrations from NBA bench players before but this one ranks up there in my book. In a recent game between the Spurs and Wolves, Marco Belinelli was on fire, doing what he does best and that’s knocking down three-pointers with ease. So his teammates on the bench started to rub their bellies after Belinelli drained threes. Get it? Belly… Belinelli! See...

Draymond Green unleashed

Golden State Warriors fans were never afraid to criticize their old coach, Mark Jackson. The frustrations that he had simultaneously taken the team forward while also holding it back never ceased throughout his tumultuous final year. Warriors owner Joe Lacob went out of his way to criticize the former coach yet again this weekend. Right now, (Kerr) looks great,” Lacob said at...

How do the Raptors replace DeMar DeRozan?

DeMar DeRozan is the Raptors’ All Star. OK, maybe Kyle Lowry was more deserving last year and DeRozan is a bit too inconsistent to be an All Star, his place on last year’s team more of a team honor for how well the Raptors were playing than anything else. And DeRozan is good. In this strange perfect puzzle the Raptors have, DeRozan is one of the players that helps make things...

The Cavs regain their place

It took about a month into the season. It took some trials and tribulations. Some hard lessons learned from the young players and some teammates to get used to. The storyline followed the similar path that the Heat did when LeBron James joined the Heat. He had the experience to know to let things work themselves out. The Cavaliers just had to be patient. James has taken a back seat...

Chicago returns home after a long road trip

The Chicago Bulls should not feel very good about their performance on their latest road trip. Entering the season, the Bulls were projected by some to win the Eastern Conference. They managed a 4-3 record, but had some poor losses on the road trip. They fell at Portland 105-87 and 103-88 at Sacramento. Portland has been an elite Western Conference team all season, but Sacramento...

Steve Kerr inherited a lot, but already has improved Warriors

It is easy to look at the Warriors roster and just say “Splash Brothers.” The duo single-handedly saved Golden State from a poor effort Tuesday when Curry drained three 3-pointers including the game-winner against the Magic. That is the, ahem, magic this duo can provide. They are never out of the game so long as Curry or Klay Thompson can get up a shot. That is not what is...

Hawks are off to a pretty good start, and things are only looking up

Their schedule may have been a little on the easy side so far to start the season, but the Atlanta Hawks are one of the Eastern Conference’s biggest surprises. Atlanta, under second-year head coach Mike Budenholzer, is 11-6 are are third in the East, and are 8-2 at home. The Hawks were a bit of a disappointment last season, winning just 38 games and sneaking into the playoffs as...

How seriously do we take the Rockets now?

Houston gets to be the butt of all our jokes. The Rockets have the talent to be a championship contender with James Harden and Dwight Howard anchoring the team and an offense that loves to spread the ball and hoist threes. The defense is also not bad, ranking third in the league with a 96.3 defensive rating entering Wednesday’s game. Houston can feast on weaker teams all it wants...
