    Jun 22, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Ben McLemore

    Ben McLemore and Victor Oladipo are the consensus top two shooting guards in the 2013 NBA Draft, but for very different reasons. McLemore is seen as a potential superstar who needs more on-court aggressiveness to really shine. Oladipo is seen as a great role player who maximizes his talent. Even a couple seemingly benign quotes…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Mario Chalmers, who knows something about making buzzer-beating 3-pointers in winner-take-all games, inbounded the ball with 5.2 seconds left in the third quarter, immediately got a pass back from Ray Allen and dashed upcourt unimpeded. Then, he pulled up from 30 feet to bank what has so far been the biggest shot of the biggest…

    MIAMI — The Heat and the Spurs have engaged in an epic Finals battle which will crown one of them as champions by the time Thursday night is through.

    Miami Heat's James runs downcourt after scoring against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    LeBron James has never before been in an NBA Finals Game 7. Which isn’t a shock, there are not many of those. But he has been in four Game 7s before, and when you look back at them you see a pretty unmistakable pattern — he puts up good numbers, but he only wins when…

    PBT’s own Brett Pollakoff tweeted this out when the Heat were down 5 with: 28 seconds left and the Heat had called a timeout. “Fans in Miami heading for the exits.” Thousands of them.

    Gregg Popovich is the best coach in basketball right now. One of the best of all time. He has four rings and built a culture in San Antonio that has them in NBA Finals 14 years apart and with consistent 50+ win seasons in between. But he is not perfect. He made a couple decisions…

    That was an epic Game 6. There was great play from both sides, huge shots by Ray Allen and Tony Parker and LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard and… I could go on and on. The players knew it was a great game, too. These are some highlights from the postgame press conferences where they talk…

    Jun 19, 2013, 4:35 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    You’ll have to excuses ESPN for not mentioning LeBron James achieving a triple-double during the Heat’s 103-100 win over the Spurs until Game 6 ended.

    Ray Allen is amazingly, incredibly clutch. This is exactly why the Heat wanted him from Boston. What a huge shot. If the Heat win this series, that will go down as one of the greatest shots in Finals history. Allen and LeBron James will get credit for making 3-pointers to send Game 6 to overtime,…

Tim Duncan had been a force, with countermoves spinning Chris Bosh around and…

    Jun 18, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    West Virginia v Kansas

    Kansas’ Ben McLemore was pretty much a top three pick on everybody’s board a month ago, but he may be sliding down some boards right now. In part that is because the smooth-shooting guard out of Kansas didn’t help his cause in some recent workouts, reports Chad Ford at ESPN.com (Insider). Multiple sources told me…
