The Pacers’ injury struggles have allowed Donald Sloan to shine

The Indiana Pacers’ severe injury problems have been well-documented so far this season and they started even before the game began, when Paul George broke his leg during a Team USA scrimmage. George is Indiana’s best player and there is no doubt about that. But, Indiana has been hit especially hard at the guard position, where Rodney Stuckey, C.J. Watson and George Hill are...

DeMar DeRozan will make guards remember the post

The post game is kind of dying. More and more centers are inching away from the paint and the 3-pointer has become a widely accepted and necessary weapon in the NBA. So who are the kings of the low block? Believe it or not after your Al Jeffersons and Kevin Loves and Blake Griffins, the best player on the low block might be a guard. Lance Stephenson and DeMar DeRozan are taking...

Mark Cuban: Letting Steve Nash go the worst decision of career

What’s the worst move you’ve made as the owner of the Dallas Mavericks? “Letting Steve Nash go. I learned an expensive lesson. It took me too many years to realize that for some GMs, their number-one job wasn’t winning a championship, it’s keeping their job. It’s easy to look back and see my mistakes today. I wish I would have been smart enough to know better back then...

James Harden with the sick Eurostep vs. Spurs

Houston’s James Harden had quite the highlight-worthy game versus the Spurs. Not only did he put Aron Baynes on a poster, he also made guard Cory Joseph look like a post with one sick Eurostep en route to the rim. RIP Cory’s ankles.

Nerlens Noel alert! This year is gonna be inconsistent

Nerlens Noel came into this season with a lot of promise and it looks like he could deliver on it. However, do not expect to see highlight plays from him all the time, but the athleticism is there without a doubt. Even in Noel’s first four games he has been on both ends of the spectrum with a 14-point, 10-rebound, 3-block game and then turning around and posting a 10-point, one...

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. The Brooklyn Nets have been one of those 11 teams fighting to make moves in the playoffs. With such a promising roster, since becoming...

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...
