There were multiple NBA players arrested on domestic abuse charges last year. The spotlight on those cases will be different now.

As a reserve on a minimum salary this is a decent pick up.

LeBron James tried one of these in a game I attended earlier this season, but wasn’t able to complete the finish. When he was asked about why he did it, he claimed it was the only play available at the time. Seeing this one from the Grizzlies’ James Johnson, LeBron’s explanation makes more sense. Johnson…

Let’s take a look at three players who were in action Tuesday night who deserve starting jobs sooner rather than later. Jeremy Lamb, Oklahoma City Thunder Reggie Jackson has understandably received plenty of praise in Russell Westbrook‘s absence, but don’t sleep on Lamb’s emergence as a reliable scorer. With Thabo Sefolosha struggling to find his…

On the surface this sounds like a AA minor league giveaway in July. Yet this works for the Memphis Grizzlies. The Memphis fan base has become enamored with D-League call-up James Johnson, because fans everywhere love the guy who doesn’t have the most natural skill but just outworks everyone on the court (as David Thorpe…

Last season: Another mired below mediocre for a Kings team that has been just awful for the past seven years. Sacramento finished with just 28 wins, good for 13th out of 15 teams in the West. The team was 29th out of 30 in defensive efficiency (only the Bobcats were worse), DeMarcus Cousins remained out…

Last season: It was the end of an era. Josh Smith‘s final season in Atlanta ended the only way it really could: with plenty of ill-advised shot attempts, tons of highlight-reel plays, and probably most importantly, another early playoff exit. After a first round loss to the Indiana Pacers in six games, it was fair to yet…

There are a handful of NBA roster spots not filled yet, and that means a few teams still looking at the guys not yet inked somewhere. Such as James Johnson, most recently he has lined up a series of workouts, reports Real GM. Free agent forward James Johnson will attend workouts for the San Antonio…

Now that is drama. The Knicks almost completed an amazing comeback win — down 27 in the second quarter they came all the way back to lead by two points with less than 20 seconds to play. One basket probably seals the win but DeMarcus Cousins reads the Knicks play — Jason Kidd and Tyson Chandler…

Last Season: More of the same, for a club that has been truly terrible for the last six seasons. Paul Westphal was run out of town mid-season in favor of Keith Smart, who thus far has had much greater success relating to the team’s young players. DeMarcus Cousins showed significant improvement, and the speedy rookie…

My favorite B-movie of all time is “Killer Clowns from Outer Space.” It is as terrible and ridiculous as the title suggests, an outright cavalcade of campy horror bathed in absurdist light. To try and watch it is to recognize that sometimes, there are things which should not be made, and yet you will watch…

The Kings have picked up a good wing defender who can give them some solid if not spectacular minutes, and do so at a good price. The Toronto Raptors have agreed to trade James Johnson to the Sacramento Kings for a second round pick, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. Other reports have confirmed this and…

The Toronto Raptors came into Tuesday’s game against the Suns having lost eight straight, the last six of which came with their best player, Andrea Bargnani, sidelined due to injury. The Suns were playing in Phoenix after a five-game, eight-day East coast road trip that concluded just the night before with a loss in Dallas.…
