Aquille Carr is Training For This Year’s NBA Draft

It’s not often you see a guy turn down a free Division-1 scholarship to play ball overseas, but that’s what Aquille Carr, former standpoint HS point guard from Baltimore did. He’s not the first and probably won’t be the last. Carr first committed then changed his mind. But things didn’t exactly go as planned. Carr ended […]

J-Smoove Says Teaming Up With Rondo Would Be ‘Surreal’

Could the next great NBA dyad already be planning an inevitable union? Don’t count on it, in part because Josh Smith and Rajon Rondo wouldn’t qualify as one of the great pairings; mostly because it’s just not going to happen. Before the Boston Celtics handed the Detroit Pistons another loss on Sunday evening, Smith openly […]

Watch: Andrew Wiggins Erupts For Career High 41 Pts Vs. West Virginia

Despite being proclaimed the best high school player since Lebron James, University of Kansas star freshman Andrew Wiggins hasn’t quite had the standout season some had expected in College Hoops. While fellow star frosh and potential one-and-done players Julius Randle, Jabari Parker, and even fellow teammate Joel Embiid have all had some pretty impressive offensive […]

Under Armour Bloodline: Ben Berry’s Favorite PE

Being born in 1989, I can say that I came of age with a sneaker entity like Sole Collector. Was a member of the forums, ordered the magazines before they were in major sneaker stores like Foot Locker, and even dated messed around with girls featured in those pages (before and after). That being said, […]

Tyson Chandler, Kevin Love Engage in War of Words

For whatever it’s worth, Tyson Chandler is as challenged offensively as Kevin Love is defensively. That being said, the Knicks took on the T’Wolves a few nights ago and the two were matched up against one another. During halftime, Knicks reporter Tina Cervasio asked Tyson Chandler about his matchup with Love: Kevin Love apparently caught […]

Mike Woodson Not Happy Noah Is Recruiting ‘Melo

New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson isn’t happy that the Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah is trying to sell Carmelo Anthony on The Windy City. Because, duh. ESPN’s Chris Broussard brought word on Thursday that Noah started selling Anthony on Chicago while the two were in New Orleans for the NBA All-Star Game: Well, over […]

NBA Execs and Player Agents Expecting Another Lockout

Crap. Just crap. My apologies for ruining your day in advance, but according to the Sporting News’ Sean Deveney—special thanks to Joe Flynn over at Bleacher Report—NBA league executives and “prominent” agents are expecting there to be another lockout in 2017: It is a little more than three years before the NBA’s current collective bargaining […]

2Pac Look-a-like Spotted at Celtics-Warriors Game

Guess who showed up to watch the Celtics-Warriors game last night. 2Pac Shakur. Is he alive and well? I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but the this fan sure had the Boston crowd fooled.The hospitality staff even played California Love and put his mug on the big screen. Damn, what a doppelganger!! Clearly he […]

Nate Robinson Plans to Return to Nuggets Next Season

Remove Nate Robinson’s name from the list of potential 2014 free agents. He isn’t going anywhere. The 5’9? journeyman has played for six different teams over the last nine years. Most recently, he signed with the Denver Nuggets after having a fabulous season with the Chicago Bulls. Landing in Denver was good for Robinson in […]

Russell Westbrook Records Triple-Double in 21 Minutes

In this age of advanced stats and efficiency, Russell Westbrook’s performance last night should top the list. OKC cruised past the tanking Sixers quite easily, in a game where they didn’t really need Russ to log a lot of minutes. In fact, he only played 21 minutes. But that was enough for him to notch a […]

AND1 Aqua Mid – ‘Sir Lance-A-Lent’ Player Exclusive

Lance Stephenson has carried AND1 on his back for the last two NBA seasons with his high level of play, and thanks to the blossoming Indiana Pacer team he is apart of, the street ball brand from 1993 is enjoying a popularity revival.

NBA Power Rankings: The West Is Good, The East Is Not

The NBA’s Eastern Conference is good, man. Just kidding. It’s awful. All kinds of awful. The most awfullest thing ever. Picture the worst meal you’ve ever ate. Then envision yourself eating said meal alongside your most insufferable ex. And then imagine what it would feel like if that meal and rendezvous took place in the […]

Tyson Chandler Unsure About Future with Knicks

With a record of 21-40, not many on the Knicks are expressing that they’re looking forward to coming back next season. Whether or not they have a choice, they still don’t seem to be looking forward to it. Tyson Chandler is under contract until after the 2014-15 season, but he’s talking as if he’s already […]

LeBron Regrets Not Winning Zydrunas Ilgauskas A Title

LeBron James never ceases to amaze. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the Miami Heat superstar goes and torches the Charlotte Bobcats for 61 points. And just when you thought you’ve heard it all, James starts waxing regret about his failure to procure an NBA championship for former teammate Zydrunas Ilgauskas. James hopes […]

Phil Jackson Thinks Only ‘Jesus’ Could Coach These Lakers Successfully

This is why we love Phil Jackson. The Zen Master is honest, sometimes to a point of comedic relief. Unless he’s talking about the Detroit Pistons, of course, who I firmly believe he’s hoping will provide him with a long-awaited front office debut. When it comes to the Los Angeles Lakers, though, Jackson is an […]

These Would Have Been The adidas D Rose 4.5 Colorway Derrick Rose Wore In The All-Star Game

There was high expectations for Derrick Rose since coming into the league, and before his 2012 ACL injury he seemed to be exceeding them. A player who’s stock was only rising, it wouldn’t be a stretch of the imagination to call D Rose being an All-Star if healthy this season. That being said, take a […]
