Jamal Murray became of age to drink legally in the U.S. less than a month ago and played in his first NBA game fewer than two years ago. Despite his age and relative lack of experience playing basketball at its highest level, Murray was booed for an entire game in one of the most iconic arenas by one of the prettiest fan bases while playing against one of the league's preeminent...

Clint Capela makes the Rockets nearly unbeatable

As of this writing, the Houston Rockets sit a game above the Golden State Warriors for the best record in the NBA and look like the team with the best shot at unseating the champs from their throne. James Harden is having another MVP-esque season, Chris Paul has been a near perfect complement and the shooting from the entire team has been excellent. Mike D’Antoni is running the NBA...

When fans look back on the 2017-18 NBA season, they are going to refer to this year as "the James Harden season."The Houston Rockets have the best record in the NBA, thanks in large part to the 16-game winning streak the team is currently on, and Harden, by just about every measure, has been the best player in the Association.

Anthony Davis is playing like a man possessed. Over his last six games, the New Orleans Pelicans' superstar has been putting up numbers that would make Wilt Chamberlain proud, pulling off stat lines that even eluded the Big Dipper himself. Most importantly for the Pels, the team has won all six of those games, as Davis has almost single-handedly kept New Orleans in the playoff picture...

No one wants to jump with Dennis Smith Jr.

I still remember the wild debates Davion, Dhevin and I had about the 2003 draft class and which players would be the most fun to watch. Davion couldn’t wait to see LeBron James suit up for Cleveland, Dhevin still believes in Carmelo Anthony and I was sold on Dwyane Wade after watching him at Marquette.

The 'Kawhi so serious?' quiz

The San Antonio Spurs' record currently sits at 35-24, good for third best in the Western Conference and sixth best league-wide. That they've managed to pull this off despite getting just nine games from their star player, Kawhi Leonard, is an accomplishment unto itself, even by the Spurs' lofty standards. But it appears as if this may end up being a lost season for the two-time...
