The hottest team in the Eastern Conference doesn’t have a three-headed monster like the Cleveland Cavaliers. It doesn’t have a scrutinized superstar returning from injury like the Chicago Bulls or a rapper sitting courtside at every home game like the Toronto Raptors. Heck, it doesn’t even have a national TV appearance, even though it plays in TNT’s backyard. But the Atlanta Hawks have won nine of their last 10 games, flying well under the radar toward the top of the conference. The Hawks
If you‘ve ever seen the movie Dumb and Dumber, you know exactly what I’m talking about here. If not, then you should just slam your head on the nearest desk/flat surface in shame for not seeing one of the best movies of all time. Just because I’m extremely biased towards anything with Jim Carrey in it doesn’t make the above statement not true, so I’m sticking to it.

It’s been a tumultuous week for the Cleveland Cavaliers. After a solid four-game win streak against teams like the New Orleans Pelicans and Atlanta Hawks, the script has been flipped in Northeast Ohio. The Cavs are now on a four-game losing streak. An ugly losing streak. At times, we’ve seen glimpses of the brilliance of coach David Blatt’s offense. Unfortunately, at the same time, we’ve seen a nonexistent defense and a let’s-stand-around-and-watch-someone-dribble offense.
Considering that the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats dominated the No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks, winning 72-40 with relative ease, the question has since been posed as to whether the Wildcats would be able to defeat the hapless Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers are now 0-11. They are statistically among the worst defensively in the NBA and, likewise, also among the worst offensively. Still, for all of the talented, young big men that Kentucky boasts on their roster, Philly still boasts a lineup of grown
Besides money, why did Chris Bosh choose to re-sign for what appears to be a middling, post-LeBron era with the Miami Heat? Because in Bosh’s eyes, forming a bigger NBA title contender with the Houston Rockets would’ve been “nothing but pressure”.
The Phoenix Suns surprised everyone last season – including themselves – when they won 48 games and missed the playoffs only due to a couple of tough losses in the final week of the season. Goran Dragic had the best season of his career, Eric Bledsoe lived up to the potential his biggest fans envisioned and both Markieff Morris and Gerald Green were in the running for Sixth Man Award. Now entering their second season together – with a new key piece
