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 [...]

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.

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.

Knicks’ Sales Pitch In Iman Shumpert Trade Proposals Sucks

Oh, you New York Knicks. You wildly dysfunctional, presently terrible New York Knicks. You never cease to amaze us whilst also making us loathe ourselves for indulging your embarrassing antics.

Or Marc Gasol catastrophe. Or Anthony Davis fracture. Or Paul [...]

Derrick Rose Not Sure What Type of Player He’ll Be Upon Return

Derrick Rose is opting for season-ending surgery to repair the meniscus he tore in his knee on Friday night in Portland. Frankly, that’s the only option. Rehabbing it without surgery would probably be a huge mistake. That means the earliest we will see him is the beginning of next year, but don’t hold your breath. [...]
