Kobe Bryant: Lost in the Land of Angels

An optimist, a pessimist and a realist walk into a bar… to watch a Lakers game. It does not matter how you slice it, the Los Angeles Lakers’ 0-4 start is bad – Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern kind of a bad. And domino after domino, the problems keep coming. Steve Nash kissed his season, and probably career, goodbye and should be looking into trading in his sneaks for...

Grantland Basketball Hour provides fun for hardcore NBA fans

ESPN’s NBA programming is extremely lacking. That is a pretty sad statement for a key partner for the league — one of its national broadcast partners — and the network that airs the NBA Finals. And that is where Bill Simmons’ Grantland Basketball Hour comes in. Whereas the NFL remains king with multiple shows devoted to breaking down the game and showing highlights and even...

No, Kobe Bryant is not asking for a trade

“I hear the chatter of Kobe should ask out and he should go and play for a contender in this latter stage of his career. But that’s not what I do. I’m extremely loyal to the Lakers. I believe in fighting through the tough times as well as enjoying the good times. It’s my responsibility to get us to be the best that we can be. It’s important that we approach that on a day...

Spurs guard Marco Belinelli is known for hitting the three with ease. So why wouldn’t a robot want to learn to shoot the three from Marco? Yes you read that right, Marco taught a robot to shoot from long range. An Italian company called created the robot Comau RACER.

Brook Lopez Back and Better Than Ever

The Eastern Conference in the NBA is always a shake-up. Year after year, two teams that remain at the top of the conference, 11 other teams battle it out for six remaining playoff spots, and those last two teams fight for the number one draft pick.

In Boogie We Trust

Don’t look now, but the Sacramento Kings are 3-1. I will let that sink in for a bit. This in light of the fact the roster features these starters: Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins, Jason Thompson, Ben McLemore and Darren Collison. Only two of those guys are starters on any other team and yet this team has shown it can finally get it done on the defensive end by keeping opponents under...

Marcus Smart gives Celtics a bullish backcourt

Boston trailed by 31 points in the first half of the team’s eventual loss to Dallas on Monday night. If you just looked at the final score — 118-113 Mavericks — you would have never known how far back the young Celtics got. If that were the case, you might not appreciate the work it took to get back and nearly win the game. Yes, the Celtics had a chance to win. They can thank...

Being a Spurs ball boy has its perks

Being an NBA ball boy is apparently hard work. You have to not only be a ball boy but it seems one has to do random errands for players and even maintain locker rooms for both the home and away teams. But aside from being able to interact with some of the league’s best talents, there is one additional perk – getting your hands on rare and autographed sneakers directly from the...

When Kevin Durant broke his foot during the preseason and it was announced he was going to miss 6-8 weeks, the Oklahoma City Thunder immediately went from a title contender to a decent Western Conference playoff team until his return.

Clippers’ Blake Griffin gets taken down hard by Kings’ Ben McLemore

Clippers’ Blake Griffin is known for putting many on a poster. When he has a full steam coming right at a player, it might be a vicious dunk on the way. Maybe that is why Kings’ Ben McLemore decided to take down Blake hard in a recent game. Blake was all by himself ready to throw it down when McLemore tossed him to the floor hard. It was enough to get Griffin steamed where teammates...

A shot of Paul Pierce could be exactly what Wizards need

Paul Pierce boldly proclaimed after hitting a big shot in the first game of the Playoffs last year against the Raptors, “This is why they brought me here.” Pierce has never been afraid of the big moment and has always been unafraid to take the big shot. That has been the way he has operated and played throughout his 17 years in the NBA. Pierce is not one to go quietly into that...

Kemba Walker gets his payday, sets market high

There have been precious few extensions signed before Friday’s deadline for the members of the 2011 Draft Class. Kyrie Irving got his. Nikola Vucevic too. Kenneth Faried as well. That has left many, many other players waiting their turn. This includes Enes Kanter, Tobias Harris and, most notably, Klay Thompson. Part of the problem is no one quite knows what the market will be...
