Well, that escalated quickly. No one threw a trident (Anchorman references are acceptable again, right?), but there were big ramifications from the on-court scuffle between the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors. The tussle started when Andrew Bogut and Joel Freeland got tied up in the paint, and things went to another level once…

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.

Regardless of how you feel about Kobe Bryant, you have to admit that he’s doing something pretty incredible this season. How many players in their 17th NBA season average nearly 30 points a game on career-best efficiency numbers? It’s unprecedented. Problem is, Kobe hasn’t been getting an awful lot of help offensively, and he’s nowhere near…

The Timberwolves started the season doing a pretty good job of fighting through the rash of injuries the team was dealing with, getting off to an unexpected 5-2 start.

At this point, every roll of the ankle for Stephen Curry is accompanied by concern, frustration, and that all-too-familiar queasy feeling. Curry is just too good to always be on the bench in a suit, and no matter what team you pull for, it’s hard not to feel for the guy. As it turns out,…
