    Dwane Casey

    Many NBA observers were happy for Dwane Casey when he got another chance at being a head coach with the Toronto Raptors to start the 2011-12 season. Casey is known for having a high basketball IQ, and for being a no-nonsense, defensive-minded coach. And many believed he didn’t get the fairest of chances while holding…

    The days of veteran players with nothing more than fringe roles on NBA rosters heading up the players’ union are over for now, because for the first time in over a decade, a legitimate All-Star with plenty of name recognition has been elected as president.

    The Drew League gained quite a bit of fame when the NBA’s top players took their talents to the Charles Drew Junior High School in Compton, Calif., during the 2011 NBA lockout.  The annual summer league doesn’t only host talented players during lockout years, however, as proven during Tuesday night’s league championship game featuring the…

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Six

    While in practice Allen Iverson has been retired for a few seasons — because NBA teams stopped paying him — he never formally sent in the paperwork. He held out hope.

    Allen Iverson Sixers

    Allen Iverson has not set foot on an NBA court since 2009-10, a season split between the Grizzlies and Sixers that did not go well for anyone. Since then he has played in Turkey for a season but NBA teams have not thought the level of distraction would be worth the level of production for…

  8. Matt Bonner knows his seasoned baby carrots

    Matt Bonner

    That is Matt Bonner selling Shakedowns, which are season baby carrots. If you had asked me which NBA player was most likely to get an endorsement deal for seasoned baby carrots, I would have said Matt Bonner. He just would edge out DeMarcus Cousins and J.R. Smith. Not much else to say here, other than…

    Imagine you, like me, speak only English. You’re visiting family in a foreign country where nearly nobody speaks English. When it’s time to fly home, the airport can be a scary place. Your family can go only so far with you before reaching an area only for ticketed passengers. But with very specific and detailed…

    LeBron James

    We’re never going to see LeBron James in the All-Star weekend Dunk Contest. People will read into that whatever they want — he didn’t take part in an exhibition event — and it will say more about them then and their biases than it does LeBron. But man, it would have been fun to see…

    Lebron James

    It’s not easy to name just three players as the greatest of all time, not if you are really a student of the game. You can make an argument for a lot of guys. LeBron James struggled with it when asked by Fox Sports. But he ultimately settled on Michael Jordan, Julius “Dr. J” Erving,…

    Damian Lillard racked up a lot of minutes last season — a league high 3,167. He averaged 38.6 minutes per game for a full 82 games. That’s a lot of time on the court. Understandably, he would like that number to go down, he told Sean Highkin of the USA Today. “Sometimes when you’re out…

    You probably remember the guys from Dude Perfect for their ridiculous trick shots, but here they have branched out with a really funny video if you (like me) play pick-up basketball.  They breakdown the pickup ball stereotypes. It’s amazing how much in pickup guys fall into these categories. Doesn’t matter where you play, or at…

    "Call Of Duty:Ghosts" Multiplayer Global Reveal

    In a twist of fate, Doc Rivers is going to need a lot from DeAndre Jordan. Remember the Clippers were willing to ship out Jordan this summer to get Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers — a deal that David Stern killed (you can’t trade players for coaches) but told you exactly what the Clippers think…
