The Chicago Bulls, at least on some level, aren’t totally concerned with how they fare this season. Derrick Rose is already out for the year, and no matter how well everything else comes together, the superstar’s injury limits the Bulls’ upside in 2014. They already traded Luol Deng for zero assets that will help them…

Victor Oladipo has shown a flair for dunking in this, his rookie season with the Orlando Magic. He got loose once again on Friday, exhibiting both speed and power when finishing a fast break slam over the Bobats’ Gerald Henderson. Veterans and players that have achieved a certain level of star status tend not to…

Could it really be anything else? If we are talking about one play that we will be talking about a decade, two decades from now it will be Ray Allen‘s step back corner three that sent Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime. There was a lot that led up to it (including the…

The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s San Antonio’s “Hammer” set. The San Antonio Spurs don’t get enough credit for keeping up with the times. Although the end result is often the same as it has always been – Tim Duncan facing up and banking a…

By D.J. Foster All over the league, we’ve seen young teams fighting against the tank. If the playoffs started today, the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns would be in the playoffs. This was unfathomable a few months ago. It wasn’t just about their rosters being bad – they were supposed to be bad. The Milwaukee…

Gerald Henderson of the Bobcats became the latest player to be warned for violating the league’s anti-flopping rule on Wednesday, and there’s little doubt that his dive against the Mavericks on Tuesday was worthy of its distinction. With his back to the defender, Henderson simply takes a leap toward the sideline with the ball in…

Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

It seems as though the league has been cracking down on flopping a little bit more than it did a season ago, at least through this campaign’s first couple of weeks. A handful of players have already been issued initial warnings for violating the anti-flopping rule, and Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks became…

One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

Our grades from Tuesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while debating the Top 10 superhero movies… Indiana Pacers. They have been the best team in the NBA through the first week plus — they are undefeated at 4-0 thanks to a lock-down defense and Paul George. That defense is the best in…

Mike Brown is a defensive minded coach. That is his reputation. If you see the Cavaliers as a playoff team in the East (and I do) then you are counting on a healthy Kyrie Irving, somebody stepping up in the frontcourt, and Mike Brown improving a defense that was 27th in the NBA in points…
