NEW YORK — Former NBA player Dell Curry was on hand at the All-Star interview session on Friday to answer a number of questions about superstar Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, and the proud father had plenty to say about the growing game of his son. Asked what his son got from him and what’s different between the two, Curry said “there’s a lot that’s different” with a big laugh. “I’d like to think he got the shooting touch from his dad,
This deal has been brewing over the last week or so, but it has finally become official: George Karl is now the new head coach of the Sacramento Kings. There were some questions at first about the possibility when a report surfaced that DeMarcus Cousins’ camp was not in favor of the move (for what reason is anyone’s guess), and that was kind of a big deal given Cousins’ status as the face of the franchise. Nevertheless, here’s Adrian Wojnarowski of
As strange as this sounds, the Golden State Warriors will limp into the extended All-Star break. You’d never know from looking at their overall record and it’s unclear what the issue is exactly, but the best team in the NBA has been struggling mightily in recent weeks. The execution on the offensive end has been sloppy, the shooting has come and gone (mostly gone) and the energy level has dropped significantly – at least compared to what we’ve become accustomed to
During TNT’s first game between the Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns on Tuesday, Charles Barkley said something about both teams that had plenty of folks shaking their heads on twitter. “Two of the worst defenses in the league” were the words spoken by the long-time analyst, despite the fact that Houston is ranked seventh on defense, while Phoenix is a bit lower at 17th overall. To be fair to Barkley, who has a tendency to make comments as if he were
New Orleans Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis has been a growing superstar this season, capable of just about anything on both ends of the floor with his freakish athletic abilities. The only reason he is not a true contender to be an MVP up to this point is due to a lack of team success.
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
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
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. They have the third best offense in the league, which is miles better than where they were last season (12th). Make no
