    The NBA was pretty loaded during the era Bernard King played and, unfortunately, that’s allowed his legacy to get overshadowed a bit. The four-time NBA All-Star is being inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame this year, however, so it’s time some of the newer basketball fans familiarize themselves with the living legend. The Brooklyn…

    Fab Melo, Earl Clark

    Fab Melo was once a pretty prominent prospect, posting a 2.9 block per game average in his second season at Syracuse after picking up basketball much later in life than most professional players. That isn’t the case anymore, however, because Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the big man cleared waivers on Sunday.  …

    Axier Sucre, Diego Bareiro

    The FIBA Americas tournament enters Day 3 on Sunday after a solid first two days of action.

    There are a lot of famous basketball fans: Jack Nicholson, Spike Lee, Jay-Z, Chris Rock (and sometimes Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber, if they’re in a city with an NBA game happening and are able to find a hat emblazoned with the home team’s logo). There are also a few notable NBA fans that aren’t…

    Aug 31, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    Mike D’Antoni was brought in as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers just five games into the season last year after the team decided to part ways with Mike Brown.

    Aug 31, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    LaMarcus Alrdridge earned a second consecutive All-Star appearance last year, but it essentially went to waste as his Portland Trail Blazers finished 33-49 in spite of their big man’s best efforts.

    Aug 31, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith, Paul Pierce

    J.R. Smith has never been shy and, unsurprisingly, the New York Knicks swingman didn’t put his filter on before talking to Ian Begley about comments new Brooklyn Net Paul Pierce recently made.

    The allure of pro-am basketball isn’t what it was during the 2011 NBA lockout, but watching the best players in the world play basketball — wherever they’re at and regardless of their opponents — is still fun to watch on a lazy August day. And, because of that, we’re bringing you highlights of the 2013…

    Rockets White Basketball

    The Philadelphia 76ers traded for Royce White in early July, sending just “future considerations” to the Houston Rockets in order to acquire the 2012 first-round pick and Turkish prospect Furkan Aldemir. It turns out that the little-known Aldemir, not the embattled White, was apparently the object of the Sixers’ affection. It made sense for new…
