Experience helps Summer Leaguers grow

Making it to the “big show” of the NBA is nice. Everyone wants to stay there obviously. Life on the fringes does not make that task easy. Usually a young player just on the edge of falling into or out of the NBA has to prep up for a grueling tour through Summer League to cement that roster spot. Experience is key. It gives a hunger to get back there and a knowledge of what it...

NBA weighing putting Finals on TNT

“In a twist, the NBA may look to split up the NBA Finals between the two media companies, so that the championship round games would air on channels belonging to both, the people familiar with the matter said. That could take various forms: The networks could alternate Finals coverage each year, or carve up the Finals—played as the best-of-seven—in a given year.” –Sharon...

How will Heat adjust?

“Win projection, neutral schedule (2014′s strength of schedule): 43.2 (44.9) Offensive efficiency: -0.4 (-0.4) Defensive efficiency: -1.2 (-1.9) Miami drops nearly ten wins from the season before thanks to an imploding offense.

Chandler Parsons upset with Rockets

“Honestly, I was offended by the whole process. They publicly said that they were going out looking for a third star when I thought they had one right in front of them. I guess that’s just how they viewed me as a player. I don’t think I’ve scratched the surface of where I can be as a player and I think I’m ready for that role. You can’t knock them for always trying to...

Mosby was never afraid to share his feelings...

Carmelo Anthony chooses money over wins. . . for now

LeBron James‘ decision about where to sign his contract for free agency was about making something right that was wrong. It was also about winning. He looked at the landscape of the Miami Heat and the health of Dwyane Wade and was not convinced he had a chance to win. Yes, winning in Cleveland was going to be a challenge.
