The Cavaliers should consider playing defense

The Cleveland Cavaliers are playing some incredibly horrific defense and it is a huge reason, if not the main reason, they are only 5-4. The Cavaliers are near the bottom of the league in many major defensive categories like defensive rating (26th allowing 110.8 points per 100 possessions) and opponent points per game (24th allowing 104.3). They also give up an effective field...

‘The Glove’ says players ‘dislike’ Dwight Howard

Face off: DeMarcus Cousins vs. Anthony Davis

The Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans are two of the biggest surprises in the NBA so far this season. Ask observers and Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins have to be among their top-5 early season MVP candidates. Both have gotten out of the gates quickly and led their teams to surprising starts at the top of the Western Conference. Who would have thought that this matchup...

Ricky Rubio Out, Zach LaVine In

It has been 11 days since The Minnesota Timberwolves beloved point guard, Ricky Rubio, left the game against Orlando with a rolled a ankle. Toward the beginning of the season Flip Saunders referred to this season as “developmental,” and those words have become the epitome of the Timberwolves. Reports from the Timberwolves camp say that Rubio was still on crutches during Monday’s...

Bradley Beal is close to a return

Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal is on the up and up after suffering a fractured left wrist in an October preseason game. Coach Randy Wittman did not give an exact date on a return for the prolific shooter, but is hoping that the game against the Cavaliers on Friday is a realistic return date. Of course, Wittman does not want to push it because Beal’s long-term...

The defending NBA champs, San Antonio Spurs, have started off a bit slow, so what gives? I mean these are the Spurs! To break the Spurs’ lackluster start, Bloguin’s own Project Spurs’ Jeff Garcia and Aaron Preine broke down the Spurs slow start to the season. Are there any chemistry issues? Who have the Spurs been missing more Patty Mills or Tiago Splitter? What about the...

DeAndre Jordan has excelled for Clippers even as Blake Griffin has struggled

While 5-3 would be a pretty good record for most NBA teams through eight games it is actually a little disappointing for the Los Angeles Clippers. Last season was also disappointing for the Clippers, as they lost in the Western Conference Semifinals to the Oklahoma City Thunder in six games. That has carried over to this season, which has been a relatively mixed bag for LA. The...

Do the Rockets have a defense?

While Kevin Durant was yelling obscenities at Dwight Howard, the Thunder and the Rockets were engaged in an intriguing and ugly game of basketball. A 69-65 win for the Rockets does not quite fit the Rockets’ storyline. This is a team with tons of offensive potential and little in the way of defense. The story on Houston is that James Harden cares only about offense and Dwight...

The “Hulkster” tries to pump up the Warriors crowd

WWE legend Hulk Hogan was on hand at a recent Warriors game to pump up the crowd. Complete with his signature music, mustache, ear-cupping to the crowd and his voice, Hogan did his best to get the Warriors crowd hyped but it seems it came up a little short.

Knicks problems more personnel than system

Carmelo Anthony can do only so much. His 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter of Friday’s loss to the Jazz was essential Carmelo Anthony. It was him just taking the ball, lifting up and draining the shot. Nothing more, nothing less. That might be the ideal Anthony offense. He is the ultimate one-on-one player and can create his own shot from anything. There was minor controversy...

Kelly Olynyk is a sophomore on the rise and we should take notice

The 2013 NBA Draft class has been underwhelming to say the least, but there is one player hoping to change that view. Kelly Olynyk has started the year on an absolute tear — he is shooting 60 percent and an even more absurd 50 percent from downtown. There were a lot of guys who were expected to contribute right away and did like Victor Oladipo, Trey Burke and the Greek Freek...

Prices for Thunder tickets are tanking, even if the team isn’t

The Oklahoma City Thunder are not where they expected to be at this point in the season. Oklahoma City is treading water until they can get Kevin Durant (fractured right foot) and Russell Westbrook (broken right hand) back in the lineup. Until then, some of the younger Thunder players are getting a shot to play. With a 3-6 record, that’s not exactly what Thunder fans were looking...

He has been working out, staying in shape and has been supporting his teammates from the Twitter sidelines. However, his teammate, Manu Ginobili, has been picking on Mills...

Why the Sacramento Kings are this year’s Phoenix Suns

You read that right. The 2014-15 Sacramento Kings will be this year’s version of the 2013-14 Phoenix Suns. What makes them so similar? Both teams had two stars people could rally behind and easily recognize. For the Suns it was their pair of guards in Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic, and for the Kings it is DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay. While the guards only averaged 38 points...
