NBA Power Rankings: Grading Every Team At Season’s Halfway Point

Judgment day has arrived. Kind of. Halfway through the 2013-14 NBA season, most of us feel like geniuses. We know stuff now, you see. Real stuff. Important stuff. Which teams will make the playoffs for sure? We know that. Which teams are absolutely terrible? We know that, too. Why exactly is the Eastern Conference reaching […]

Nets Owner Still Thinks Team Can Win Title

Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov hasn’t given up his team. Meaning? He’s a far better man than I am. Although the Nets have began the season 16-22, waffling in and out of the Eastern Conference’s playoff picture, Prokhorov has yet to give up hope. His team was supposed to contend for a title following the […]

THD Podcast, Ep. 148: The JR Smith Saga and the Celtics’ Future

Jimmy Butler Calls Chicago Bulls ‘Grimy’

Jimmy Butler thinks the Bulls are grimy—in a good way. Following Chicago’s triple-overtime victory over the Magic, Butler was exhausted. “Y’all can go with me right now because I can’t move,” he told reporters, according to The Chicago Tribune‘s K.C. Johnson. “Tired” probably isn’t the appropriate word. Butler logged a franchise-record 60 minutes, 20 seconds […]

Mike Woodson Says ‘Melo Will Retire with Knicks

Not everyone thinks Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony is a flight risk this summer. Ask head coach Mike Woodson, and he’ll tell you ‘Melo isn’t going anywhere. Ever. Appearing on his weekly spot on ESPN New York 98.7 FM, Woodson indicated that he believed Anthony’s future was in the Big Apple. “In my heart, I don’t […]

Mark Cuban Wants NBA to Admit Officiating Errors More Often

This season, the NBA has announced refereeing errors more than any other time in recent memory. After a controversial no-call, there’s usually an announcement the following day admitting the blown call. That’s both good and bad. Good in that the league is owning up to it, but bad because it causes everyone to get more […]

Derrick Rose is Now Off Crutches

It’s no secret that this knee injury for Derrick Rose is far less significant that the one prior. To that end, he seems to be progressing nicely and quickly. He has already ditched the crutches apparently which is a huge milestone. It still remains to be scene if he’ll return to the Bulls (who look […]

10 months agoSports / Hockey : The Puck Doctors

Prepare yourselves for the most unconventional of NBA compliments. Following the Indiana Pacers’ 106-79 romping of the Boston Celtics, Roy Hibbert told CSNNE’s Abby Chin that Jared Sullinger could be “the Kevin Love of the East.” Quite the form of praise, wouldn’t you say? Sullinger is in his second season with the Celtics and is [...]

10 months agoSports / Hockey : The Puck Doctors

The Spurs are flying under the radar once again, so all is well in the world. But of course, one of the main reasons they are able to remain competitive each year is because of steady play from Tony Parker. Parker is having a solid season, but will be forced to miss the next 2 [...]

Dion Waiters Requests Trade From Cleveland

10 months agoSports / Hockey : The Puck Doctors

Dion Waiters has been unhappy in Cleveland for a while now. And that’s unfortunate considering the fact that he was drafted last year. His biggest beef is that he’s not clicking with Kyrie Irving both on and off the court. Waiters has apparently been very vocal about wanting a trade, realizing the Cavs are Irving’s [...]

Dirk Nowitzki Dumps on NBA’s Eastern Conference

10 months agoSports / Hockey : The Puck Doctors

Dirk Nowitzki is starting to see a pattern. It’s a pattern you’ve probably noticed, too. A well-documented, oddball pattern—the NBA’s Eastern Conference sucks. Like, it’s really bad. Horrible. Spit-in-your-face disgusting. Players know it. Teams know it. They have to. There’s no way they can’t. Few have voiced it publicly, though. Save for the Portland Trail [...]

Kevin Garnett Calls Doc Rivers ‘Damn Near Close’ to Perfect

10 months agoSports / Hockey : The Puck Doctors

Doc Rivers isn’t Ray Allen. Believe me, that’s an important distinction these days. Allen was the rat bastard traitor who left the Boston Celtics high and dry in 2012, spurning them for the Miami Heat and the opportunity to win a title. Rivers, who orchestrated his departure from Boston, is almost perfect. Or so says [...]
