'Coach's decision' as Carlisle benches Rondo in clutch

"Coach's decision". ... and "coach's decision." Rajon Rondo is a four-time All-Star. This is his offense, as much as it is anyone's, by the nature of both his talent and his position of point guard. His skills as a closer are central to why Dallas acquired him in trade in December, and, previous to Friday, why coach Rick Carlisle was able to praise him as a key to the Mavericks'...

Players the Lakers Should Consider Swapping for Picks With Kobe Bryant Done for the Season

Carlos Boozer Boozer was the one veteran the Lakers attempted to bring on to accompany Kobe Bryant and to help fill the hole left by Pau Gasol’s departure.  Unfortunately, with the hopes of playoffs now completely non-exist, it may be time to ship the talent power forward to a contender.  Team’s without talented and veteran big men would be lucky to bring in the hard-working...

James Harden Sinks Suns at the Buzzer

Just when Phoenix fought their way back into the game. Houston Rockets guard James Harden did his thing at the buzzer, hitting a deadly step-back jumper to sink the Suns at the buzzer for good. “It’s a great feeling,” Harden said. “Usually I go at seven, eight seconds. Now I went at three, four seconds left in the game. Hey man, either the ball goes in or it doesn’t. Fortunately...

Iman Shumpert is shooting 100% as a Cavalier. While many people were captivated by Klay Thompson’s NBA record-setting 37 points in the 3rd quarter of the Warriors-Kings game last night, they might have missed another extraordinary performance.

Kyle Lowry’s midair flop is glorious

Not only is Raptors’ Kyle Lowry an All-Star, he also is a flop-star. But what makes this flop so wonderful is that Kyle flops in midair against the 76’ers. Lowry was driving to the rim when his defender barely touches him and he flopped so hard in midair and of course he gets the call.

Kyrie Irving’s non-selection as All-Star Starter Cost Him $7 Million

I’m not sure if Kyrie Irving’s play this season was worthy of being voted in as a starter in the All-Star game, but his bank account is surely hurting over not being named. Cleveland.com reports that with Irving being signed to a max extension last summer coming off his rookie contract, he was slated for huge money if he fulfilled certain requirements. It’s called the Derrick...

Green Envy: What Nuggets fans said - 1/24

With two teams in full tank mode, the Nuggets made the Celtics look like a legit basketball team. I will also note that Nuggets starting point guard Ty Lawson was a DNP because of a DUI he received the night before. Former Celtic, albeit brief, Jameer Nelson played real well. Evan Turner wilted at the free throw line down the stretch, which left just enough time for Jameer to brick...

Celtics’ Pressey has unique way to get through screens

Sometimes you got to think out of the box and that’s just what Boston’s Phil Pressey did against the Nuggets. Seeing a screen coming his way, instead of running around it, maybe slicing between the defender, Pressey goes all out and fights through the screen. Like literally through the screen. As in underneath the defender’s legs. No joke! Brilliant Phil! I guess being short...
