Goran Dragic could sign with Knicks – Says things “can change quick” with him

After signing Isaiah Thomas last summer to a four-year $28 million contract, the Suns were suddenly loaded with three guards that all need the ball in their hands to be effective. This has led to plenty of speculation that there could be a trade on the horizon with Goran...

Jeremy Lin isn’t thrilled with Kobe Bryant taking all the game wining shots

  The Los Angeles Lakers fell to 8-18 last night after a missed game-winner by Kobe Bryant. The Black Mamba finished the game 3-15 and struggled at times finishing with the team’s worse +/- on the team at -6.

Could Warriors and Knicks discuss a blockbuster involving Carmelo Anthony (DETAILS OF TRADE)

The Golden State Warriors are the NBA’s best team – at least record wise. Yet, for most people, you still don’t feel like they are the Western Conference’s best team, let alone the best NBA team. I’m by no means suggesting the Warriors couldn’t make a run and possibly come out of the Western Conference, but you’d have to be a fool to think they could just roll through...

WATCH: Brandon Jennings auditions for Shaqtin’ A Fool

ESPN personality, Jemele Hill calls this play “Pistons season in a nutshell.” and I’m not inclined to argue. Brandon Jennings makes a clean cut, receives a nice bounce-pass from Caron Butler, becomes possessed by JaVale McGee, and then auditions for Shaqtin’ A Fool. Yes. What you just watched was an act of atrocity from Brandon Jennings. He catches the ball, has the opportunity...

38 year-old Andre Miller fails miserably on put-back dunk attempt

Washington Wizards backup point guard Andre Miller must have felt like he was 21 years-old again because the 38 year-old decided he was going to throw down a dunk off a rebound last night instead of just grabbing the board. As you can probably imagine, this didn’t go as planned and Miller was stuffed by the rim. Miller is known for his old man game and high basketball IQ, not his...

Could the Boston Celtics send Rajon Rondo to the Indiana Pacers in a blockbuster move?

The Marcus Smart era has arrived, in Boston, just as I predicted it would in my first 2014 Mock Draft. Listen, there are two thing I’m sure of. A) Rajon Rondo is on his way out of Boston, either via  trade, or through free agency. Obviously the latter isn’t what’s best for the Celtics, as losing a potential top five point-guard for nothing never sits well with fans. B) The...
