When is the last time you went to an NBA game and saw a truly great player? And when is the last time you’ve been able to do it on the cheap? Ticket prices in the NBA went up 3.4% compared from last season. This might not seem like much, but it bumped up the cost of an average NBA ticket to $53.98.

This is the third season of Rookie Rankings at SheridanHoops. In each of the first two seasons, a highly trusting coach has given a point guard the keys to the Ferrari and these instructions: “Try not to wreck the thing, OK, kid?” Two years ago, it was Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, who became the first rookie to lead the NBA in minutes played since Elvin Hayes in 1970.

Anthony Davis absolutely dominated the Orlando Magic, putting up 26 points, 17 rebounds, two assists, nine blocks and three steals, in which the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Magic 101-84. The San Antonio Spurs hung their fifth title banner since 1999 and flashed their championship rings as they took on Dallas at home. The Spurs, playing without Tiago Splitter and Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, outlasted the visiting Mavericks by a
Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard finally has his real life NBA2K moment. In 2K, the moment when you know your MyPlayer character has arrived (aside from that time that you single-handedly equaled your opponent’s scoring output) is definitely when you get your first signature shoe. Entering his third season in the NBA, the 2013 Rookie of the Year is finally set to debut his first signature shoe with Adidas. He took to social media to share the news with a
