    The Stat Line of the Night — 12/7/10 — Luis Scola

    The Houston Rockets were expected to play better than they have so far this season, but don’t blame Luis Scola, who is having a career year.  While the Rockets stumbled out of the gate, they appear to be righting the ship with wins like the one they earned last night against the Detroit Pistons.  Scola […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 12/7/10 — Carlos Boozer

    Here is a statement that most NBA enthusiasts have not been used to hearing the past three years: The Bulls won a game in spite of Derrick Rose having an off night.  Not only did that happen last night, but it came against one of the elite teams in the league, the Oklahoma City Thunder.  […]

    Picture Of The Day: Kevin Durant Knows Where Amazing Happens

    While the NBA has been trying to tell us that their league is “where amazing happens,” the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant has other ideas, according to his shirt.  And no, that arrow is not pointing to his Nike kicks that cushion his landing after a thunderous dunk, or his knees and legs, which help […]

    Barkley Tells Conan He’d Kick Obama’s Ass…In Basketball (Video)

    Everyone knows that American President Barack Obama loves playing basketball, but is he any good at it?  Charles Barkley doesn’t seem to think so. Although Barkley was one of the greatest players during his days with the 76ers, Suns and Rockets, he has since grown old, fat, and appears to have few traces of athleticism […]

    The Derek Anderson post-game press conference blow-up following Monday night’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers has been making waves throughout America.  It even reached the Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard, and he couldn’t help but respond to it.

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/30/10 — Danny Granger

    The Indiana Pacers are one of the surprise teams in the NBA this season, thanks in no small part to their budding superstar Danny Granger.  Battling the flu last night, Granger was able to lift his team past the Sacramento Kings on the road, 107-98.  the Kings threw everything they had at him, giving him […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/29/10 — Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant may be the new young face of the NBA and an MVP candidate, but he may not even be the best player on his team.  Russell Westbrook has been having an outstanding start to the season and some say he may be more of a reason for the Thunder’s success than even Durant himself.  […]

    The Bulls are in the midst of a long road trip and were coming off a loss to the Lakers when they arrived in Phoenix. The wear and tear seemed like it was beginning to show as the Suns jumped on the Bulls early and led 36-17 at the end of the first. But Derrick […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/23/10 – Dirk Nowitzki

    It took Dirk Nowitzki’s entire arsenal, and some help from his teammates, for the Dallas Mavericks to overcome the lowly Detroit Pistons last night.  Thankfully for Dallas, Dirk’s arsenal is enormous and effective.  He was his usual self last night, scoring on a variety of 3-pointers, jumpers, layups, and post moves.  After trailing by as […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/17/10 – Chris Bosh

    Chris Bosh had to know his numbers would take a dip after signing with the Miami Heat and teaming up with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. Still, I doubt he thought they would be as low as they were heading into Wednesday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns. But the Heat pounded on the Suns […]
