Tweet of the Night: Warriors players show support after the trade of David Lee

David Lee

With Draymond Green taking over the starting power forward position, emerging as one of the best defenders in the league and signing a five-year deal with the Golden State Warriors this summer, it was no secret that time had run out for former starter David Lee. It was a simple matter of when, and Lee, who had been with the team for the last five years through the good times and the bad, was finally traded on Tuesday to the Boston


Tweet of the Night: David Robinson thrilled with all the moves made by Spurs in free agency


The dynasty simply known as the San Antonio Spurs was eventually supposed to flame out with an aging group of stars that have stayed together for the entirety of their careers. With Tim Duncan (39), Manu Ginobili (soon-to-be 38) going well into their twilight years and Tony Parker (33) starting to slow down, their level of contention in the West was supposed to drop down a notch at some point – even with the growth and emergence of Kawhi Leonard, who


Tweet of the Night: Bill Simmons questions whether Aldridge is worth it for Spurs, players react to Day 3 of free agency


Slowly but surely, the free agent market is starting to dry out with over 40 signings in the first three days of the free agency period. Further significant signings occurred on Friday with the biggest deal going down for DeAndre Jordan, who decided to bolt the Los Angeles Clippers to join the Dallas Mavericks for four years on an $80 million contract. Other significant and relevant deals included the following: Tobias Harris agreed to stay in Orlando for a four-year, $64 million


NBA players react to Day 2 of 2015 free agency on twitter

Day 2 of the 2015 free agency period wasn’t quite as crazy as Day 1, but plenty of players looking for new homes (or old) were still on the move and locking themselves up with teams for years to come. Unless you were Dwyane Wade, of course, who agreed to a one-year deal worth $20 million to stay with the Miami Heat. In most cases, though, free agents have agreed to multi-year deals including the following: Damian Lillard – five-year, $125 million contract with


NBA players react to a glorious first day of free agency on twitter


The golden age for NBA players wasn’t supposed to arrive before 2016 when the new TV deal would kick in, but it has clearly arrived early enough for the free agents of 2015. It started just as the free agency period kicked in with the calendar turning July when Anthony Davis agreed to the largest single contract ever for an NBA player. While other big-name players like LaMarcus Aldridge, Monta Ellis and Marc Gasol are still trying to figure out what they want

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


NBA players react to Game 5 of the NBA Finals on twitter


Stephen Curry has been less than stellar – at least by his standards – in the NBA Finals heading into Game 5, to the point where people have started to wonder if Andre Iguodala should be the Finals MVP. Curry put a silence to that talk on Sunday night in the Oracle Arena, putting up 37 points on 13-of-23 shooting from the field, including 7-of-13 from the arc, seven rebounds, four assists and two steals. The point guard was absolutely spectacular
