The Chicago Bulls have been one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference for much of the season, and they are still the favorites to come out of the East in Vegas when all said and done. Does that sound right, though? They finished with a fourth-best 27-14 at home last season in the conference with a seemingly worse roster than the one they currently sport, but are already closing in on the 14 losses from last year (there is still

Tweet of the Night: Quincy Pondexter reacts emotionally to being traded to New Orleans Pelicans

Quincy Pondexter

Being in the NBA has its perks (okay, that’s a major understatement), but there are also plenty of things that can be dreadful about it. One of them? Being traded from a team and city that you absolutely love. That was the case for forward Quincy Pondexter, who was officially traded to the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday after spending the last three seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies. Pondexter is best known for his defense, the ability to knock down an occasional

Tweet of the Night: Rudy Gobert proud of his team’s fight despite loss against OKC

The Utah Jazz suffered a tough 99-94 loss on the road against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, but the team has much to look forward to for the remainder of the season and beyond, thanks to the presence of Rudy Gobert. Gobert has been inserted into the starting lineup over the past four games due to an ankle injury to Enes Kanter, but the second-year center is starting to prove that he belongs with the first unit even when Kanter

Jeff Green

The Western Conference got a little crazier in December when Dallas acquired Rajon Rondo from Boston to become a dark horse contender, while Houston was willing to take on the volatile ways of Josh Smith, who was amazingly waived by Detroit. It seems the rest of the West won’t stay quietly as others shore up on their weaknesses. Oklahoma City traded for Dion Waiters earlier in the week, and apparently, all you have to do is pick up the phone and talk

Tweet of the Night: Jamal Crawford wants to see DeAndre Jordan and Monta Ellis make it to the All-Star game

Jamal Crawford

As crazy as this sounds, we are already approaching the half-way mark of the NBA season, and that means the All-Star game is right around the corner. The latest All-Star game voting returns were released on Thursday, with not much having changed since the second returns. The starters seem to be virtually set, which means it’s time to discuss who gets in as reserves (I wrote about some of the top candidates here, which included Draymond Green). Players around the league are

SH Blog: Cavaliers give up two first round picks to acquire Timofey Mozgov, Grizzlies want Luol Deng or Jeff Green

Mozgov

The Cleveland Cavaliers are making moves. Specifically, general manager David Griffin is trying to go all in on the talented but flawed roster of his team right now. It started with the removal of Dion Waiters on late Tuesday night, as the guard had not lived up to the role as a starter or a bench player for the team. For him, they were able to acquire J.R. Smith (who made a not-so-glorious debut on Wednesday with an zero-of-five shooting performance),
