show-me-the-money

The biggest news in the first hours of 2015 free agency had nothing to do with a free agent. Instead, we got a whiff of the funny money that is going to be the new norm a year from now. Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans agreed to terms on a five-year max deal for at least $145 million. Yes, one hundred and forty five million, with an opt-out after the fourth year. Big number, eh? Well, a year from now,

Does spinning stack up to cycling?

Most people probably know the difference between spinning and cycling, but why should you choose spinning when you could just go outside and ride your bike for some good old fashioned exercise? Well, spinning has its benefits when the weather outside may not be optimal for cycling. You could change the resistance and go at your own pace and you don’t have to worry about pedestrians or ongoing traffic. On the other hand, you can’t drive to work at spin class or

Top 50 Free Agents: Nos. 19-35

19. Brandon Knight, G, Phoenix (Restricted): He was Jimmy Butler with training wheels, unable to reach accord on an extension with Milwaukee in October, elevating his game to borderline All-Star level and setting himself up for a huge payday as a restricted free agent this summer. Then Bucks management – likely influenced by ownership’s struggles in getting taxpayers to pick up more of the tab for a new arena – got out from under Knight’s impending payday and dealt him

36. Patrick Beverley, G, Houston (Restricted): Last summer, Rockets GM Daryl Morey played chicken and lost with RFA Chandler Parsons but somehow landed on his feet thanks in part to the contributions of Beverley, whose season ended early with a wrist injury. Morey cannot afford to do the same this summer with “Mr. 94 Feet,” who isn’t close to being a pure point guard but is among the top defenders at the position, a valuable commodity given the number of scoring

Tweet of the Night: Anthony Davis announces big signing with NOLA, Brandon Jennings reacts

Anthony Davis

It’s no secret that Anthony Davis is one of the most unique and gifted players the league has seen in quite some time. In just his third season in the NBA, Davis helped the New Orleans Pelicans reach the playoffs for the first time since the 2010-2011 season. Despite getting swept by the Golden State Warriors in the first round, Davis had a coming-out party of sorts, averaging 31.5 points on 54 percent shooting from the field, 11 rebounds, two assists, 1.3

36. Rodney Stuckey, G, Indiana (Unrestricted): Has he finally added a 3-pointer to his arsenal? Stuckey shot .390 from distance this season, which is 73 percentage points better than his previous best. If that number isn’t an outlier, Stuckey is worth way more than the $1.23 million the Pacers stole him for last summer and may be worth more than the $8 million former Pistons GM Joe Dumars paid him. Again, there are plenty of teams that could use an upgrade
