Whenever there’s a big free agent on the market, the Dallas Mavericks do their best to throw their name in the hat. While they struck out on the likes of Chris Paul, Deron Williams, and Dwight Howard, they have done a nice job to keep the team in the hunt with Dirk Nowitzki as the center piece. Depending on who decides to opt out of their current deal, this summer could feature...

LeBron Reportedly Not Pleased With One Teammate’s Focus

image from: lastangryfan.com During the NBA Finals, we saw the Miami Heat struggle to find contributions from their role players.

John Wall takes photo wearing another team's jersey

John Wall, you gotta stop doing this. It wasn’t terribly long ago that we saw John Wall wearing an Atlanta Hawks jersey. Now, we can see that he’s switching it up a bit, and decided to throw on an Indiana Pacers jersey. This isn’t a big deal, but it’s always a little strange to see players wearing other team’s jerseys.

Report: Bucks star headed to rehab

He emerged as one of the few rim protectors good enough to cover up for an otherwise bad defense, and showed enough promise for the Milwaukee Bucks to sign him to a big extension. Now, it seems like things can’t get a ton worse. He was virtually non-existent for the...

VIDEO: Boogie Cousins Scares a Bunch of People at ESPN

For some strange reason that only he will understand, DeMarcus Cousins goes by the nickname “Boogie.” While it doesn’t make much sense, I certainly am not brave enough to question him on it. As a play on his nickname, ESPN brought him to their office to put on a boogie mask and scare a bunch of people. The Sacramento Kings center is terrifying enough as is, and putting a scary...

Jimmer Fredette could be on his way to Europe next season

Guard Jimmer Fredette might have played his last season in the NBA – at least for now. In July, Fredette will a free agent that probably would only get offered the league minimum. In three seasons, Jimmer hasn’t seen much of the court despite being one of the better shooters in the NBA. So signing on with a team from the NBA may keep him on the pine.
