We all knew that Josh Smith had become a detrimental player on the court – at least for the Detroit Pistons – with his inability to space the floor and the horrible shot selections that crippled the offense. What we didn’t know was just how capable the Pistons would be with him out of the lineup.
Lets talk about the New York Knicks. By now, you all know that Phil Jackson fired Mike Woodson and hired Derek Fisher after failing to entice Steve Kerr to take the coaching job. You also know that the team’s roster still has plenty of familiar faces that played a role in what turned out to be a disastrous season last year, along with some key additions – most notably being Jose Calderon and Sam Dalembert. Carmelo Anthony, of course, re-signed with
The Donald Sterling saga somehow appeared to be coming to a close last week when it was announced that the banished owner would withdraw his lawsuit against the NBA and agree to sell the team to Steve Ballmer for an estimated $2 billion. All of that changed quickly on Monday when Sterling decided to flip a switch and go into attack mode once again. Here is his statement on the matter, from NBC News: I would like to clarify some issues regarding

It was a big night for college basketball and general managers around the NBA, as Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins – two of the biggest prizes for the upcoming summer’s draft – went head to head against each other in a much anticipated contest between Kansas and Duke on Tuesday. With expectations sky high, the two made sure no one left disappointed. Parker scored 19 points in the first half, including this impressive dunk, to capture much of the attention and finished
Popular ESPN personality Bill Simmons and his NBA on ESPN cohost Jalen Rose sat in front of a camera to record the NBA Preview for the B.S. Report on Grantland.com. During the episode, Jalen made a striking prediction for the 2013-14 NBA season. A stunner from Bill & Jalen’s NBA Preview: @jalenrose believes Michael Jordan will play in an NBA game this season. http://t.co/gjhxEjJI8M — Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) October 3, 2013 That’s right. Jalen Rose expects 50-year-old Michael Jordan to come out of retirement
No matter how you look at it, Jalen Rose had a successful NBA career. He turned in 13 seasons, averaging 14.3 points and made his name as a hard worker, a great teammate, and one of the better trash talkers in the league. He is famously known as a member of the Fab Five.
