ChrisPaulSH1

Chris Paul opened up a can of worms after a loss on Thursday against the Cleveland Cavaliers when he decided to explain in detail why he had an issue with referee Lauren Holtkamp, a new full-time female referee in the NBA this season. Holtkamp is the only other full-time female referee in the league alongside Violet Palmer, so she’s in a pretty exclusive group. Any time you address someone like that publicly, especially in a negative light, it’s going to cause some

Tweet of the Night: Dan Le Batard compliments the dominance of LeBron James

What was considered a “feces show” early in January has now become a show of dominance by the Cleveland Cavaliers. With LeBron James looking  renewed since taking a couple of weeks off to rest his sore knees, the Cavaliers have ripped 12 consecutive victories after dismantling the Los Angeles Clippers 105-94 at home on Thursday. The final score was not indicative of what happened, as the Cavaliers led by as many as 32 points in the third quarter to allow the

SH Blog: Gregg Popovich explains why he hates in-game interviews, LeBron James says he’d come off bench if it helps team

The Golden State Warriors are one of the most intriguing teams to watch in the NBA, thanks in large part to having the most dynamic backcourt simply known as”The Splash Brothers”. Aside from that,  the team has also made vast improvements in offensive execution compared to previous years, where the ball no longer sticks too long in one player’s hands.

The Golden State Warriors sometimes have a tendency to spot the other team a giant lead to start games before clawing their way back. Take the game against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, for instance, when the Warriors allowed the visiting team to get out to a 40-18 lead in the first quarter. Still, it somehow wasn’t particularly worrisome for the defensive-minded, high-scoring Warriors. Knowing how they’ve played all season long, you just knew at some point that they would lock down

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in a dog fight for homecourt advantage in the Western Conference all season long and finally had the chance to overtake Portland Trail Blazers for the fourth seed on Monday when they went into The Barclays Center against the Brooklyn Nets, who were 18-28 heading into the contest. The Nets, however, provided an unexpected fight all game long before seemingly folding in the fourth quarter as they so often do with a nine-point deficit with

Tweet of the Night: Enes Kanter not shy about the comments he made about Klay Thompson and Andrew Bogut

Enes Kanter

A few weeks ago, James Harden learned the hard way that talking negatively about the Golden State Warriors doesn’t do any good for his team on the court. Apparently, Enes Kanter of the Utah Jazz wasn’t paying attention because he had some interesting things to say about the Warriors on Friday prior to their final meeting of the season, from CSN Bay Area (keep in mind that the Jazz had lost the previous two games by an average of 12 points and
