There’s been a lot of noise about Steph Curry the past three weeks. It’s been a field day for open debate on radio and TV talk shows — Do the Golden State Warriors sit him? Do they play him, do they start him, do they need him? With no Steph to watch, the conversations started […]
Last season was odd for the Portland Trail Blazers. They went 51-31 and made the playoffs, but lost in the first round to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Trail Blazers could not capture the magic they had in the 2014 playoffs, when they won their first postseason series since the year 2000. In the 2015 playoffs, […]
He may have won an NBA title in 1999 with the San Antonio Spurs, but the late Jerome Kersey made a name for himself with the Blazers. As you may have heard, the former Blazer passed away recently, leaving the NBA world stunned at losing one of its best players to ever suit up. Kersey […]
I thought the All-Star game was a collection of the best players in the league, who do everything better than the rest of the players who aren’t playing in the annual event. You know, they score the ball better, rebound better, pass the ball better and oh I don’t know, inbound the ball better. So […]
It’s often that NBA players think they got the skills to get behind the mic and have a successful rap career. Again, they think! Players like Shaquille O’Neal, Tony Parker, DeJuan Blair, Allen Iverson and many others have tried their hand at rapping and failed. Now it seems the Blazers’ Damian Lillard wants to prove not […]
It looks like Damian Lillard will get his All-Star nod after all. After it was announced that Blake Griffin would miss the All-Star Game with a staph infection, commissioner Adam Silver got to choose another player to replace him. Who did he go with? Damian Lillard of course! Portland
According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire “plans to use the All-Star break to decide whether to ask the New York Knicks for a contract buyout that could free him to potentially sign with a playoff contender.” Stoudemire is in the last year of his five-year, $100 million contract […]
Ever wondered what exactly is in an NBA locker room? Ever have questions about just how many sneakers do players really have? How about the pre-game preparations an equipment manager has to do? How about what it takes to keep NBA players in shape? More importantly, what are the latest kicks a player will be […]
Last time I checked the Thunder play in Oklahoma City and and not in Texas. But then again, this TV announcer totally must have skipped Geography 101 in school. During the Blazers-Thunder game, Damian Lillard nailed a clutch three pointer to send the game into overtime. The Thunder TV announcer got so hyped he exclaimed […]
During last night’s Thunder-Blazers game, Blazers power forward LaMarcus Aldridge and Thunder forward Serge Ibaka got tangled up below the rim which resulted in the two grabbing and pulling on each other and getting tossed from the game.
There were no punches thrown but it goes to show you, the West is stacked and with teams jostling for postseason positioning, every game counts and tensions will be high.
At the very least, some fines will be handed down by the league office I would imagine.
The Philadelphia 76ers are the bottom dwellers of the NBA. They have the NBA’s worst record (2-22). They are currently on a four game losing streak. The 76ers are really struggling to score as they are the worst offensive team in the league averaging 91.3 points per game. While they have massive offensive woes, they aren’t much better […]
The Cavaliers are all in on the All-Star Game now that LeBron is back, and the Cavs are relevant again. They have officially put their name in the bidding hat for 2018 while the Portland Trailblazers and Charlotte Hornets have done the same.
Toronto has the best fanbase in the NBA, at least according to the numbers. The Raptors have the highest home game attendance in the league right now with the Portland Trailblazers, Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Miami Heat in that order. However, we all know that is not the order of the best fanbases in the […]
