is Shutting Down


With a mix of sadness and pride, I am shuttering — the Web Site I founded in September 2011 and which published daily through five NBA seasons. I come from a family of journalists, and there is a level of disappointment that comes from deep inside me. You only get one or two chances to do something truly dynamic in life, and assembling a crew of veteran NBA writers — mixed in with several younger go-getters to produce quality basketball journalism


On Holiday


Due to an extraordinary set of circumstances, we are temporarily suspending publication — with the exception of our daily fantasy basketball advice columns. Hope to be back soon. #FamilyFirst.


Sheridan: My Season-Ending Awards Ballot


I always wait until the final game of the NBA season is in the books before handing in my postseason awards ballot, and the reason is twofold: If the deadline is not until Thursday afternoon, what’s the hurry?

Ladewski: Warriors Make their Mark, but Legacy is a Work in Progress


Now that the Warriors have caught and passed Michael Jordan and his 1995-96 Chicago Bulls as the first team to win 73 games in the regular season — and don’t say Sheridan Hoops didn’t warn ya a long time ago, not once, but twice — let the debate about their place in history begin. Because, you know, that’s what fans and media do when a team pulls off the darn near impossible, the utterly unthinkable in this age of metrics and quantitative


Danny Schayes on Dolph Schayes: A special NBA father-son team


Basketball recently lost one of its pioneers.

DuBose: Rockets hope postseason can change narrative

James Harden

HOUSTON — From the moment the Houston Rockets broke training camp in late September, one of the primary goals had been to earn a playoff rematch of last season’s Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors. So, mission accomplished? Not quite. Undoubtedly, the Rockets envisioned themselves closer to the team they were in 2014-15 (56-26 overall, No. 2 seed) than the mediocre, 41-41 squad that had to win its final three games this week just to qualify for the playoffs as the eighth
