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 […]

Watch: Top 10 Plays of the Week (1/09/14)

This week in THD Video, we threw together a highlight mixtape of some of the best plays of the week in the NBA. Who knew Jesus Shuttlesworth could still get up? Sit back and re-live the action…

Roy Hibbert Says Jared Sullinger Can Be ‘Kevin Love’ of East

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 [...]

Kobe Bryant Out 6 Weeks With Knee Injury

Kobe’s magical return to the Lakers lineup was too good to be true. After easing his way back a little over a week ago, the Lakers will again be without Bryant for an extended time. Bryant is expected to miss 6 weeks due to an unrelated knee injury, according to SI: The Lakers announced Thursday [...]

Tony Parker Out Two Games With a Shin Contusion

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

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

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

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 [...]

Lebron, Kobe, and Durant Lead 1st Ballot 2014 All Star Voting

About this time every year when the 1st results come in for the upcoming 2014 NBA All Star Game, taking place February 16th in New Orleans. Now is when we as bloggers begin to nit-pick the results and question why a player that hasn’t played a game would be a conference starter of why a [...]

NBA Power Rankings: Hello Kobe, Buh-Bye Rudy

He’s back. Kobe Bryant has officially returned for the Los Angeles Lakers, blowing our weekly NBA power rankings straight to hell…is what I would’ve written if that actually happened. The Black Mamba is indeed back, but hasn’t done anything to shift our standings. If anything, he hurt the Lakers by not rising up out of [...]

THD Kicks Exclusive: Detailed Look At Player Exclusive AND1 Tai Chi Made For Lance Stephenson

During the Eastern Conference Finals of the 2012-2013 NBA Playoffs, Lance Stephenson rose to the occasion stepping up into a pivotal role with the Pacers while wearing his first Player Exclusive pairs of the AND1 Tai Chi. Being the only And1 Basketball player in the NBA at the time (now there are three), Stephenson didn’t [...]

Wizards’ Al Harrington Out a Month Following Knee Surgery

Because of the mediocrity of the East, teams who are sitting pretty so far from a standings perspective shouldn’t be as high as they are. The Washington Wizards are benefiting from this. They have one of the five best records in the Conference and are right around.500. They’ll have to keep up their good [...]

Nets’ Paul Pierce, Deron Williams Return to Practice

We’re barely into December and we’re already hearing talks that Jason Kidd’s job is safe. The fact that that is even a topic already should give Nets fans pause. But what should ease their minds a bit is the fact that Paul Pierce and Deron Williams may be returning to action soon. They were each [...]

‘Sneak-A-Peek’ Nike KD Trey 5 II

Signature basketball sneakers have always been good business ever since the days of Walt Fraiser and the suede Puma Clyde. Fast forward to the end of 2013 and hoop kicks made for a specific player are priced at an all-time high. Having a similar look to the current shoe Kevin Durant is wearing in the [...]
