Greg Oden’s revenge game

Greg Oden has played 20 games for the Heat, averaging 12.0 points per 36 minutes and 9.2 rebounds per 36 minutes. Playing 20 games and 8.9 minutes per game seems like a major accomplishment for Oden. He has been riddled with injuries since he was drafted in 2006, playing parts of only three seasons including this year. So getting his first chance to play against the Blazers was probably...

“I think the NFL is 10 years away from an implosion. I’m just telling you: pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. And they’re getting hoggy. “Just watch. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. When you try to take it too far, people turn the other way. I’m just telling you, when you’ve got a good thing and you get greedy, it always, always, always, always, always turns on...

Thunder’s Westbrook’s knee will be all right

Thunder fans got a scare recently when guard Russell Westbrook suffered a knee injury versus the Raptors. Considering Westbrook has been dealing with knee issues which caused him to miss most of the Thunder’s run last season, seeing him go down again with another knee injury would have been a tough pill to swallow as the postseason is closing in. An MRI was done on Russell’s...

Rookie of the Year race tightening up? ☆

The most heated race in the NBA is not occurring at the top of the standings, nor in the middle. No, it is down there at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. It is kind of hard to see with all the losses that have piled up for their respective teams. Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo are locked in an epic clash for the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award. And, until an injury...

CC Video of the day: Westbrook injures knee… again

Well this was probably something the Thunder did not want to see. Since last season and this season, Russell Westbrook has been dealing with knee injuries. Just this season, he underwent two surgeries to correct his injuries and with OKC chasing the No. 1 spot in the West, having him succumb to another injury is something the team does not need. During the third quarter of last night’s...

Are teams really tanking?

Some have suggested that this season, because of the perceived strength of the 2014 NBA Draft class, more teams than usual have tossed in the towel in favor of the draft. However, the truth is if you look at the last five years of NBA basketball, this year’s standings are not that far off from the norm and are not nearly as bad, especially at the bottom, as some teams have been...

CC Video of the day: Knicks’ Anthony drops the ‘F-Bomb’ on coach Woodson

Jason Collins comments on lone slur he received

“One player, one knucklehead from another team. He’s a knucklehead. So I just let it go. Again, that goes back to controlling what you can control. That’s how I conduct myself just being professional.” -Jason Collins on the lone homosexual taunt and slur he received since signing with the Nets this year (h/t Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News)

The Bobcats, yes the Bobcats, think Playoffs ☆

Mention the Charlotte Bobcats and you are likely still to get some odd stares. Because of some historically bad seasons the past three years, the Bobcats have become synonymous with the ultimate in NBA incompetence.  Worse, the Bobcats flubbed their high lottery picks and seemingly keeping them in the bottom of the league. A few free agent signings later and the Bobcats are actually...

Kyle Lowry: I didn’t want to be a backup

“I struggled to prove that I belonged. My first couple years in the NBA, my fear was that I was going to go to the D-League – and maybe never get back to the NBA. I was picked 24th and that’s not the cushion that a lottery pick gets in the NBA. You get a few chances, and then you’re done. Then you’re just a label, never to be a frontline guy. But I didn’t want to be a...

Year after year and season after season, there always seems an NBA player will announce he is working on a new career — rap artist. From Shaq, Allen Iverson, Tony Parker to Stephen Jackson, all have attempted to have a rap career outside of basketball and have all had underwhelming results. Well, except Jackson. He had some success. So who is it this year that will be venturing...

Thinking of buying the Bucks? Think again

The Milwaukee Bucks have the lowest franchise value in the NBA. Their stadium is one of the oldest in the league and cannot pull in revenue streams to make the team competitive. The market is not the best in the NBA. And, oh yeah, they have the worst record in the NBA. To say the sharks are circling the BMO Harris Bradley Center, especially with owner Herb Kohl hinting he would be...

Mark Cuban says Lakers will never be the same

“Jerry Buss was the Lakers, so I don’t know if the Lakers will ever be the Lakers. I don’t think there was a smarter owner in the history of the NBA than Jerry Buss, so that’s tough to replace. I don’t think people realize just how good of an owner Jerry was. I looked up to him a lot. Absolutely. So I don’t know if the Lakers will ever be the Lakers. He just understood...

Phil Jackson: Carmelo Anthony isn’t leaving the Knicks when he becomes a free agent

One of the more intriguing off-court stories in the NBA this season has been the New York Knicks’ strange and eventually successful wooing of former Bulls and Lakers head coach Phil Jackson–who has won titles with both Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant–out of retirement and into New York’s front office. Finally, a few days ago, that Knicks’ pipe dream became a reality as Jackson...
