    On Wednesday night, LeBron James became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 20,000 career points.  On Thursday night, he began making his ascent towards the 30,000-point plateau with a 39-point effort against the Lakers in Los Angeles. With Jack Nicholson and plenty of other celebrities in attendance at the Staples Center to watch […]

    The Atlanta Hawks found themselves shorthanded going into last night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, as they were without several players, including superstar Josh Smith. Smith has been the best player for the Hawks this season, but he was suspended for one game by the organization for “conduct detrimental to the team” following an incident […]

    The Los Angeles Lakers kicked off the new year by losing their first six games of 2013, but their fortunes could suddenly be changing.  On Sunday, they snapped their streak of futility by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers.  And last night it was their two superstars, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, that were leading the way […]

    Well, this certainly isn’t going to do anything to dispel the Miami Heat’s reputation as a bunch of crybabies. You might recall that, back in June, during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics’ Rajon Rondo called the Heat a bunch of crybabies during a halftime interview with ESPN sideline reporter Doris Burke. […]

    The Washington Wizards may be the worst team in the entire NBA at the moment, but they have been able to string together a season-high, three-game winning streak, with their latest victory coming last night against the Orlando Magic.

    The Oklahoma City Thunder visited Phoenix on Tuesday looking to become the first team in the NBA to reach 30 wins on the season.  And they would accomplish that feat, thanks in large part to the performances put forth by their two superstars. Leading the way in the points category was Kevin Durant, who scored […]

    This Is the Most Incredible Half Court Shot of All Time (Video)

    I’ve watched a good amount of basketball in my day, and I’ve seen a lot of weird things. In fact, just this year I’ve seen a ball come to rest on the rim up against the backboard, a shot made off the top of the backboard, a shot made over the backboard, an epically terrible […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/10/2013 — Paul George

    In the world of fantasy basketball, Paul George is what we like to call, “a stat filler.” Why do we refer to the Pacers’ forward as a “stat-filler,” you ask?  Take last night’s game against the New York Knicks, for example, as George was filling the stat sheet to the tune of 24 points, 11 […]

    The Milwaukee Bucks were able to win their first game under interim coach Jim Boylan, and they were looking to make it two in a row when they visited the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.  Doing so wouldn’t be easy against a Bulls team that ranks third in the league in opposition scoring, but their defense […]

    With Kevin Love sideline due to a fractured right hand, the Minnesota Timberwolves will need someone to replace his 18.3 points  and 14.0 rebounds per game.  During last night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, that someone was center Nikola Peckovic. Peckovic was a monster on the boards, as he pulled down a total of 18 […]

    Yesterday, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News cited “a league source” who claimed that Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard nearly came to blows after yet another frustrating Lakers loss on New Year’s Day. Howard, the story goes, has been unhappy with Bryant since early in the season, and Bryant supposedly insinuated that Howard […]
