He does tricks on a jet ski. He’s been called the “Russian Mark Cuban,” although that label might be restrictive. Soon, American audiences will have…

  15. Is Kevin Durant having the best free-throw shooting season ever?

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

    The free throw line is the easiest place to get points in the NBA. However, there’s a bit of a paradox inherent in free-throw shooting. The guys who get to the line the most — gigantic centers like Dwight Howard and Shaq, along with bruising perimeter players — tend to be the worst free-throw shooters…

  16. Who are the best offensive rebounders in the NBA?

  19. Getting obsessive with Josh Smith's game-winning dunk

    Mar 25, 2010, 2:28 PM EDT

  20. Rose starting to expand his shooting range

    Mar 23, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

  23. Orlando to consider using giant frontcourt of doom

    Mar 23, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    In recent years, what it means to be an NBA power forward has changed somewhat.

No team is a better example of this than…

  25. Who will be the next head coach of the Clippers?

    Mar 23, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    The long-suffering Los Angeles Clippers are playing out the string on yet another ugly campaign. As bad as the Clippers were doing under former coach (and general manager) Mike Dunleavy, replacing him with Kim Hughes mid-season seems to have been an example of putting out a fire with gasoline. The Clippers are 5-16 under Hughes,…
