But his...

Carmelo Anthony’s eight-year-old son is a rising hoops star

We’ve seen plenty of videos of basketball stars’ kids showing off their dance moves or wowing us with their wit during post game pressers. Which is great, don’t get us wrong. But it is always a little extra special to hear when a star’s spawn dominating the competition–on the court for a change. Carmelo Anthony’s eight-year-old son, Kiyan, is apparently quite the hoops...

Cavs Rewind: Top 15 Plays of the 2014-15 Season

I‘m not good at many things. I never had the hand-eye coordination, athleticism, or toughness to thrive at sports, and lacked the attention span, threshold for boredom, and determination to become proficient at any hobby that could be construed as a “talent.” Had I ever participated in a talent show, it would have just been me criticizing all the other performers — think...

Embiid Surgery Delay Raise Questions

The Joel Embiid saga in Philadelphia continues to be an interesting one. At this point in the process – a full 13 months since the 76ers selected Embiid with the 3rd overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft – no one seems quite sure what exactly is going on with the seven footer, and even less sure when we may actually see him out on the court.

Atlanta Hawks should not be overlooked next year

It’s hard to call a season that sees a team win 60 games a disappointment, especially when it’s a 22-win improvement over the previous season and the most in franchise history.  And most might not be disappointed with the Atlanta Hawks season: they had the stellar record, topped the Eastern Conference standings by seven games over their closest opponent and had a killer 19...
