  1. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: The Redick-ulous Ray Allen matchup

    May 16, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    One is arguably the best jump shooter in the NBA, one of the best pure shooters in history, and one of the top five guys you want with the ball in his hand and an open look with the clock ready to expire. He’s an NBA champion, a roundball legend, and a primary component for…

  2. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: Stan Van Gundy believes giving valor to the victor

    May 15, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Ours is not a very positive society, in terms of the media, in case you haven’t noticed. So when the Cleveland Cavaliers were eliminated by the Boston Celtics, the turn from all over, including from this blog, revolved around the failure of LeBron James and the Cavaliers, and James’ legacy. As a side note, oh,…

  3. Stan Van Gundy, Magic players talk sweep

    May 11, 2010, 10:04 AM EDT

    It looked easy, but Stan Van Gundy said it wasn’t as easy as it looked, sweeping the Atlanta Hawks. Although, I think he was just being polite.  

  4. Stan Van Gundy has walked a mile in Erik Spoelstra's shoes

    May 5, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    When asked if he would ever return to the bench and coach the Miami Heat, Pat Riley essentially said he’s be screwed and skewered no matter what he answered. Then he answered it anyway, as the Miami Herald reports. “I might want to coach again, I don’t know,” Riley, 65, said Monday. “If some free…

  5. Dwight Howard, Stan Van Gundy to talk fouls again

    Apr 29, 2010, 10:31 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard lost his head in the Charlotte series. Sure, there were some borderline calls that went against him, but he didn’t deal with it well. He kept picking up silly fouls, not just accepting some of the banging but retaliating. Then he sat. Then his teammates nicknamed him Foul on You. Watch the video…

  6. Dwight Howard's new nickname: "foul on you"

    Apr 26, 2010, 1:29 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard has really stepped up his game in the playoffs. Well, one part of his game. He tends to foul a lot during the regular season (3.5 per game), but during the playoffs he has been on fire. So much so that his teammates have nicknamed him “foul on you” Howard told the Associated…

  7. David Stern wins: Stan Van Gundy to stop talking about referees

    Apr 25, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

    Call him heavy handed, but David Stern gets results. He gets what he wants. He tells coaches to stop complaining about the referees, throws out a couple of fines and…. Stan Van Gundy said he is done talking about the referees during the playoffs, as the Associated Press reported. “I’ve been fined for saying how…

  8. Stan Van Gundy says something logical about MJ, backlash sure to follow

    Apr 23, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    Blasphemer! Blasphemer! The current religion of the NBA is that Michael Jordan is the best player ever. He is THE GOAT. Not up for debate. He won six titles, scored at will, was the best defender ever, lifted the NBA to new heights, cured polio and invented the cell phone. Who would dare question him?…

  9. Barnes and Van Gundy fined fined because Dwight Howard is a foul mangnet

    Apr 22, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    Two games into the playoffs and Dwight Howard has racked up 10 fouls, five each game. Which has meant some extra time on the bench and some caution as he tried not to get ejected from games. Howard likes the money he makes, so he hasn’t said a word. But his coach and teammates have…

  10. Stan Van Gundy doesn't understand how the media votes (neither to we)

    Apr 21, 2010, 3:57 PM EDT

    When the Defensive Player of the Year voting was released yesterday, the NBA’s twitter pundits — of which we are a proud member — started picking apart the ballots. Like questioning the sanity of the person who voted for David Lee as the third best defensive player in the league, and wondering if that person…

  11. NBA Playoffs: Bobcats lost game one, but won matchup against Dwight Howard

    Apr 19, 2010, 12:33 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard had a rough game against the Charlotte Bobcats to kick-start Orlando’s playoff run, even if his defense met his own unusually high standards. Howard finished with just five points and seven rebounds to go along with his nine blocks, in a performance that seems easily attributable to the Bobcats’ stellar team defense. Charlotte…

  12. In a shocking development, Stan Van Gundy says something positive about the Magic

    Apr 15, 2010, 12:33 PM EDT

    NBA players and coaches balance each other out incredibly well: most players have found success because of their confidence in themselves and their team, and most coaches have found success because of their bottomless desire to nitpick and fine-tune. It’s the yin and yang that makes professional sports go. Stan Van Gundy may be a…

  13. Stan Van Gundy gives a scouting report on the Cleveland Cavaliers

    Apr 12, 2010, 11:03 AM EDT

    The relationship between NBA coaches, players, and fans is pretty weird. Hardcore basketball fans, by nature, want to know as much as they possibly can about the game. That includes what they can observe with their own eyes, but so much of what fans want to know comes from within: validated trade talk, coaching philosophies,…

  14. One team not looking to make a move at the trade deadline

    Feb 17, 2010, 10:35 AM EDT

    It’s hard to resist the trade deadline’s appeal, whether you’re a lottery team looking to shed salary or a contender looking for that one final piece. After all, teams can always improve, and the deadline represents every team’s final chance to do so through external means this season. Chemistry, momentum, and internal development are tricky…
