Kevin Durant

When news broke that Kevin Durant would be sidelined indefinitely due to a foot fracture, there was much concern for the NBA’s reigning MVP. With an initial timetable projecting a six to eight week recovery, there were questions whether Durant would undergo surgery. With a decision made, Durant chose to have the fracture operated on as he underwent the procedure early on Thursday. After the surgery KD took to Twitter to thank the many people that offered him kind words and

Tweet of the Night: Dennis Rodman Calls J.R. Smith the New Him

JR Smith

Love him or hate him, Dennis Rodman is one of the greatest players in history. A five-time NBA champion, two-time Defensive Player of the Year and seven-time rebounds leader, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the class of 2011. In a league which embodies the never-say-never mentality, it’s genuinely safe to say there’s no one quite like Rodman. Or is there? On Wednesday, October 15, Rodman took to Twitter to name the reincarnation of himself in today’s NBA. It’s not an elite defensive player, a

Ebola. It is becoming a topic of polarizing opinions and tragic statistics. In Africa, the disease is a full-blown outbreak, having infected nearly 9,000 and killed roughly 4,500. Here, in the United States, the subject of ebola is one that evokes fear, if not complete panic. First there were the two Americans who were flown into Atlanta, headquarters to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), to be treated at Emory Hospital. Both were miraculously cured and released. There have, since, been two

Tweet of the Night: Isiah Thomas describes his perfect player

Isiah Thomas

If you were to create the most perfect basketball player, who would it be and what skills would that player have? That probably depends on whether you ask a small or a big man. If you asked a big man, they’d probably say something like Yao Ming’s height with Shaquille O’Neal’s strength, along with Wilt Chamberlain’s offense and Bill Russell’s defense. If he can also shoot like Dirk Nowitzki? Forget about it. Ask a more guard-oriented person and they might tell you a

The New York Knicks brought in Phil Jackson to oversee all major activities as the president of the team last season. Jackson then brought in his former player Derek Fisher over the summer to be the new head coach moving forward. Put the two together and what we can expect from the Knicks is this: a good amount of the Triangle offense and plenty of movement without the ball. At least that would seem to have been the plan heading into

Tweet of the Night: Grizzlies analyst Brevin Knight has a bone to pick with Bill Worrell and Clyde Drexler

Brevin Knight

Every team has its own local broadcasting duo (and sometimes trio) of play-by-play announcer and color commentator, and that can be good or bad, depending on which team you’re supporting. There are virtually neutral announcers like Mike Breen (New York Knicks) and Eric Reid (Miami Heat) who call the games as fairly as possible, but most around the league are naturally biased in favor of the team they cover.
