    Prior to the 2013-14 NBA season, GM Danny Ainge put the Boston Celtics into rebuild mode by trading Kevin Garnett and franchise icon Paul Pierce, and swapping coach Doc Rivers for Brad Stevens.

    Drake Confusing Adam Silver and Donald Sterling Is Pretty Funny (Video)

    The moment he said what he did, it was pretty clear the statement was just a matter of Drake confusing Adam Silver and Donald Sterling, and not Drake showing his allegiances to the disgraced, racist owner.

    Brandon Jennings is probably one of those guys who prefers to do everything the hard way.

    Andre Iguodala Travel Dance Makes Us Want More Traveling Calls (Video)

    The Andre Iguodala travel dance is a thing to behold. It could come from a variety of places: a desire to be more of an entertainer than an athlete, the joy of getting the ball back from an opponent’s unforced error, or maybe some sort of epilepsy side effect.

    Andre Miller Putback Gets Denied by the Rim (Video)

    It’s a shame this Andre Miller putback went the way it did. If he had thrown that down, we’d be celebrating, but instead, we’re mourning this Andre Miller putback. Sure, it’s a little funny, but it’s a little unfortunate, too. He got flat-out denied by the rim on what would have otherwise been a very […]
