    ESPN’s Sports Science Compares LeBron James and Kevin Durant (Video)

    If you compare Kevin Durant and LeBron James according to their careers up until this point, you’d have to give the edge to James’ four MVPs, two NBA titles, and two NBA Finals MVPs. As for those who choose to compare the two according to their performances during their latest meeting last night in Miami, […]

    Two Western Conference powerhouses squared off in Oakland last night when the Golden State Warriors hosted the Portland Trail Blazers.  And while the Blazers may have the better record, it was the Warriors who were the better team on this occasion thanks in large part to the play of Stephen Curry. The All-Star point guard […]

    Kevin Durant has always gone by the nickname “KD” throughout his NBA career, but with his recent reign of terror over opposing defenses (nine games in a row with at least 30 points), some started thinking that perhaps it’s time to give the Thunder forward a new nickname that he doesn’t have to share with […]

    After being left off the Western Conference’s starting roster for the upcoming All-Star Game in favor of Kevin Love and Blake Griffin, the Portland Trail Blazers’ LaMarcus Aldridge set out to prove a point against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night.  And prove a point he did. Aldridge was a dominant force throughout the contest, scoring […]

    Andrea Bargnani’s Attempted Posterization Was an Epic Fail (GIF)

    When Andrea Bargnani took off from just inside the free-throw line during last night’s game at MSG, he probably thought he was on the verge of posterizing two helpless Detroit Pistons players while winning back the respect of basketball fans everywhere in the process. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out quite like Bargnani had hoped.  Check […]

    With Vince carter making his return to Toronto to pay another visit to his former team as a member of the Dallas Mavericks, DeMar DeRozan made a point to remind VC that the Raptors are his team now. The Raps guard did that by scoring a career-high 40 points on just 22 field-goal attempts.  He […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/21/2014 — Kevin Durant

    With Russell Westbrook out of the line-up, Kevin Durant has been forced to pick up much of the slack on offense.  The result was seven straight games with at least 30 points heading into last night, and he would keep that streak going at the expense of the Portland Trail Blazers. Durant was feeling it […]

    It’s a new week, which means we’re due to bring you yet another edition of “Why the Knicks Suck.” For this edition, we take you to yesterday’s matinee game against the Brooklyn Nets at MSG, where some poor defense from Andrea Bargnani and company resulted in Nets three-pointer and a typical look of disappointment on […]

    The Portland Trail Blazers entered Monday with a five-game winning streak in tact, but the Houston Rockets’ Chandler Parsons wouldn’t allow that streak to reach a sixth win on his watch. Parsons was getting himself involved in every aspect of the game against the Blazers, as he recorded a game-high 31 points to go along […]
