First and foremost, most players of any professional game – as well as in any job profession — would more than likely proclaim they are the best in their said area of skill or position, but in a league where we have the point god in Chris Paul, skilled Deron Williams, injured, but athletic Derrick Rose, [...]

Kyrie Irving had a phenomenal rookie year, and he is also abusing cats during Summer League and Team USA practices. You may remember the video in which he was blowing past Harden and Westbrook, needless to say, Irving is really feeling himself now. Thus, he challenged Kobe Bryant to a one-on-one game, and Kobe [...]
You may remember Kendrick Perkin’s lackluster performance during the NBA Finals due to groin issues, but no worries Thunder fans, Perk underwent surgery on Thursday to solve the issue.

Carmelo Anthony is a spokesperson for “Got Chocolate Milk” and along with Olympic swimmer, Dana Torres, stars in this “My After” commercial. Yeah, I imagine Melo was gulping that chocolate milk in his recent weight loss. (sarcasm font) H/T The Windy Apple
The Dallas Mavericks may have lost out on the point guard sweepstakes in Deron Williams and Steve Nash, but they are still making moves. A nice move, if it works out for them, is the fact the club is looking to make an amnesty bid on Luis Scola via ESPN. They are also in the mix for [...]

Summer League is upon us and specifically the Denver Nuggets begin their five-game stint in Vegas on Saturday competing against the Golden State Warriors. While it will be great to see our drafted rooks such as newly inked Evan Fournier, but I’m most excited to see the MANIMAL light up the boards and Jordan [...]
The Game is a regular at The Drew League, but apparently he doesn’t believe in sportsmanship as he volleys a free throw attempt as the clock dwindles down during this game. Team Money would lose this outing to a 104-98 score and now all the youth can see how to lose with dignity, eh? [...]

After hearing Kobe Bryant stating that the 2012 Olympic squad would beat the legendary Dream Team, Charles Barkley — whom was on that ’92 Olympic team — all Barkley could do was chuckle.

Chauncey Billups is smart, but he knows above all else, you shouldn’t make bold statements such as those that Chris Paul did a few weeks ago in which he stated if Billups was healthy the Clippers would have won the Championship. Chauncey doesn’t come out and say it directly, but you understand the gist.
Let’s get right to it, we knew — at least some of us — that Andre would re-sign and while Masai hasn’t announced the specifics it’s been reported to be in the $3 million per year ballpark. Andre is one of Coach Karl’s favorite players as he can lead the offense and defense. Also, he averaged [...]
The news on JaVale McGee has been extremely quiet, which is a common trait of the Denver Nuggets front office — but since free agents can officially sign any new contracts, there is word spreading that the Denver Nuggets are working on a contract extension with their young, athletic center JaVale McGee via the Denver [...]
