    Last Night’s Rockets Tweet Upset More than Just Dallas Fans

    While it hasn’t exactly been a bloodbath, emotions had been running high during the Dallas-Houston NBA playoff series. Dallas had some widely-publicized chemistry issues, and owner Mark Cuban had lobbed a few barbs at the Rockets before the season began. And then there’s the natural geographic rivalry between the two teams. But that doesn’t QUITE […]

    Rick Carlisle got hit with a $25,000 fine after Friday’s loss to the Rockets when he criticized the officiating, so after game 4′s desperate victory, he took measures to ensure it wouldn’t happen again.

    9 Gayest-Sounding NBA Team Names

    There’s only 32 teams in the NBA, and practically a third of them conjure up some sort of homoerotic undertones or phallic imagery. Why is that? With other sports, it’s still uncannily high (like 20%), but the NBA really seems to go the extra mile. I’m not going to speculate as to why. That’s for […]
