    Mar 26, 2014, 9:19 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki , Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitizki put on a real show Tuesday night, one that couldn’t be contained in regulation.

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks

    When Kevin Durant is putting on the kind of show that will win him the MVP award, as he was doing Tuesday night, the Thunder are very hard to beat. Dallas did just that though.

  17. The Extra Pass: Talking “Summer Dreams” with producer of Summer League documentary

    Mar 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    I’m a big fan of the NFL/HBO series “Hard Knocks,” which each year follows a team through training camp and the drama of season-ending injuries and the cut downs — guys are playing for their livelihood and there is inherent drama in that. It’s great television. But thanks to guaranteed contracts you can’t do the…

    Mar 12, 2014, 4:04 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    NBA guys break out trick shots at practice all the time. Not so much during pregame warmups. Except for Dallas’ Monta Ellis, who practiced some free throws with his eyes closed, and a no-look over-his-head corner three. And nailed it. Maybe he should have broke them out during the game in Golden State Tuesday night…

    Mar 5, 2014, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Every player says it. Carmelo Anthony is saying it. It’s is some variant of “I’m not about the money, I’m about winning.” Then the money goes on the table and it’s all about the money. That’s the choice facing Carmelo Anthony this summer — a big payday from the Knicks and trust them to rebuild…

The former Sports Illustrated columnist (remember he wrote the legendary John Rocker story for the magazine) combines tireless research and great storytelling. It’s just great writing. His latest…
