Chris Bosh heads back to the post

LeBron James effectively made Chris Bosh a glorified spot-up shooter. Yes, Bosh still made the All-Star Game (and has made the All-Star game for the last eight years), but how much of that had to do with his being a member of the Heat and their attention-gathering, winning ways. Bosh had to fill a role for that team. It was to be a big who can stretch the floor and score on his own...

The fellas over at Project Spurs, Jeff Garcia and Aaron Preine, attended media day for the San Antonio Spurs and though Aaron thought it was uneventful, there were comments from Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili that may have caught NBA fans off guard.

Could Keith Bogans help the Cavs land Roy Hibbert?

There have been a number of innocuous trades and roster moves as training camps get set to start. Nothing major. No James Harden trade to wake us up before the season starts or clue us into any master plans. Just minor things. Like whenKeith Bogans was shipped from Boston to Cleveland for the non-guaranteed contracts of Erik Murphy, John Lucas, Malcolm Thomas and Dwight Powell. Bogans...

Kobe Bryant, Deron Williams engage in war of words

It is no secret Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets has not been all that great in the past few seasons. He was consistently one of the few best point guards in the NBA throughout his time in Utah, and after a decent start with New Jersey/Brooklyn, injuries have claimed a lot of his productivity. So it is imperative that the 2014-15 season is a good one for Deron, who has to...

In a game of H.O.R.S.E. vs. Manu Ginobili, you will lose

Spurs’ Manu Ginobili is know for hitting impossible shots. From clutch-deep three’s to circus shots when driving in the lane, Manu has made the impossible look possible. And then there’s this shot from Manu from a commercial in his home country of Argentina. First he has a CGI basketball to start the commercial but no CGI is needed when a real basketball is in Manu’s hands...

NBA rookie coach highlights and predictions

Every year there are new rookies in the league. But I am going to talk to you about the rookie head coaches. There seems to be a fair amount first-year coaches this season and they all enter into different team situations. So I thought it would be fun to explore what might happen to them this year. There are some good teams (Golden State and Cleveland), a bad one (Jazz) and...

LeBron opens up on race with CNN

LeBron James is the standard bearer in the NBA right now as the league’s best player. Unlike Michael Jordan, who subscribed to the “Republicans also buy shoes” attitude of social activism as an athlete, James has not been afraid to let his voice be heard as a prominent person in society. He has tried to use his celebrity for some type of activism and social awareness. James...

Rajon Rondo breaks hand in shower

Meaning he is likely out until just before Thanksgiving. How did he break his hand? Well, kind of a funny story: Celtics say Rajon Rondo slipped at his home last night. Surgery was to repair a left metacarpal...

In a battle between good and evil where good must prevail, who will answer the call? Batman? No. Wonder Woman? Nope. Thor? Pass! Superman? Close but no cigar. How about none other than “The Red Mamba” aka Spurs’ Matt Bonner. That’s right, Bonner is now featured on a comic book cover as “The Red Mamba” his nickname on the court and needless to say, it is glorious. ...

Five NBA story lines everyone should be talking about

Every year there are story lines that people love to talk about at the beginning of a season and then end up becoming moot points. Well, these are just the opposite: story lines no one is talking about that could determine the season for some teams. I wish I could guarantee these holding true, but of course you cannot predict an 82-game season completely. 1. The Dallas Mavericks...

Wizards and Cavaliers Primed for four regular season matchups

The Washington Wizards are a fringe playoff team no more. The Wizards finally catapulted themselves into the playoff conversation for good last year, as John Wall and company won their first round playoff series and even gave the Indiana Pacers a solid fight in round two. After adding veteran presence Paul Pierce in free agency and keeping most of their big-name free agents, Washington...

Who are the NBA’s fighters?

LeBron James was the toast of the NBA this summer, shaping the league by his second decision. Fellow draft classmates Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh shaped the NBA in their image too with their free agent decisions the last five years. The league was changed forever by the 2003 Draft Class. And then there was Darko Milicic. The second overall pick of that vaunted draft...

If you are like everyone on the Internet, you probably notice it looks kind of like a toilet. Whoops. The team is still engaging the community for their input and thoughts on the design. The stadium is to be built in San Francisco right on San Francisco Bay. It is going to be interesting to see how it integrates with the community and the amenities that come with it after the 49ers’...

Still something to love about Timberwolves

It is better to have loved Love than to have never loved Love at all. Of course, it is a lot harder for more than five million Minnesotans to rest peacefully at night knowing their beloved Timberwolves, who have not been to the playoffs since 2004, are back on track to defend their title of longest post-season drought. Nearly 10 years after Kevin Garnett pulled the playoff parachute...

How Blake Griffin researched Donald Sterling, the racist

Were you aware of Donald Sterling’s reputation then? When the draft lottery came out and the Clippers said they were gonna draft me, I went to Google to find out more about the Clippers, because I didn’t know a lot. And I was like, “Okay, team owned by Donald Sterling.” So then I typed in “Donald Sterling” in Google, and the first thing that pops up is “Donald Sterling...

Cavaliers allowing crazed LeBron fan back to the Q

A few years ago, in the midst of the Heat’s crazy 27-game win streak, a fan did something truly audacious. He ran onto the court wearing a homemade “LeBron come home 2014″ shirt and attempted to get his hero’s attention. The fact he got all the way onto the court is still pretty amazing. The fact LeBron James appeared to give him some dap or recognition in that moment was...
