Thunder investing heavily in youth as window closes

Championship windows are notoriously fickle. Not every team gets to be the Spurs and sit through a decade-long window of championship contention with a never-ending, revolving door of great players that fit a role and stars who are completely selfless. Those just do not exist everywhere — and they all seem to be in San Antonio. Championship windows open and then close as quickly...

Tony Parker vs. a car… who do you got?

San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker apparently went one-on-one with a car. Yes, you read that right. TP is the spokesperson for Renault – a French line of vehicles – and in a commercial promoting the car, he tested the car’s agility and handling on the court. See what they did there? Parker is a point guard with agility and handles, and the car has agility and handling. Oh forget...

Long live Steve Nash

Steve Nash is having trouble turning the page. He is trying to ignore the recent, grueling struggles of his injury-plagued time with the Los Angeles Lakers and focus on the possibility of playing past this season – despite the fact he has played 65 games in two years. Nash is the adored high school quarterback, who never won a state championship, and now he is trying...

So . . . the NBA is going to be making a lot of money

The model of sports business has drastically changed with the advent of the Internet. Media rights are the main source of income, not attendance anymore. The NFL has become increasingly worried with this. The NBA changed its ticketing and arena modeling to make up for this change in reality. Luxury suites and courtside seats came in for those with the money to be seen. The everyfan...

So who does have the best backcourt in the NBA?

Training camp is a time for talk. Everyone is in first place and no one has proven anything. So positivity, bravado and optimism take over. Everyone is going to be better and do exactly what their team needs to do to win. So we get some locker room material. Like when Dion Waiters claimed he and Kyrie Irving made up the best backcourt in the NBA: That’s nonsense. (Beal is) supposed...

It is clear that international players, specifically those from Europe, are all the rage in the NBA right now. This past season’s champions, San Antonio Spurs, had eight international players on its roster during the Finals, with three (Boris Diaw, Tony Parker, and Marco Belinelli) coming from Europe. Sure, most of those guys are established players in the league, but the resounding...

Sam Hinkie is not listening to your jokes about his awful Sixers

The Sixers are awful. No getting around that at this point. Last season was a complete disaster if you cared about the win column for Philadelphia. In fact, it was comically bad at time after the Sixers got off to a surprising start with Michael Carter-Williams‘ emergence and players like Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young trying to play their way out of that rebuilding mess.
