Kool Keith: “Durant & Westbrook”

  Why did the Oklahoma City Thunder win last night?  It has to be because rap’s resident weirdo (I say that with the utmost respect) Kool Keith named his latest song after Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.  I present to you, “Durant & Westbrook”:

Long Live The Bobcats?!

  The Bobcat experiment has come to an appropriate end. The Charlotte franchise will once again become the Hornets when the 2014-15 season rolls around and hopefully the new/old name will breathe some life back into the team. There aren’t many positive takeaways from the Bobcats era and in a couple years from now the team mascot will be a distant memory, as well as an answer...

2014 NBA Consensus Mock Draft: May 1st Update

(Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports) Who’s going first overall in June’s NBA Draft?  We haven’t a clue.  Three players – Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, and Jabari Parker – are being projected by different pundits as being the first name called by Adam Silver in June.  Should be a fun couple of months leading up to then.

The East’s Only Beast

(Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports)   It seems foolish now, only a few weeks after the fact.  But it’s true, it’s true – there was legitimate doubt as to who would emerge from the NBA’s Eastern Conference and make it to the NBA Finals just a few short weeks ago.  That doubt, for all intents and purposes, has been squashed.  It’s the Heat, and only the Heat. It’s not...

Missner’s Manifesto: Backspin Book Review

A couple of months ago, I received an email from a fellow named Pete Strobl who had written a book about his experiences playing basketball in Europe. I was intrigued but accidentally deleted the email in my rush to clean my inbox. A few weeks later, I was sitting on my bed while reading a book and remembered the email. Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember Pete’s name, but I did...
