We were all over the DraftKings leaderboard on Monday with scores in the 320 range. Many nights, that would have been extremely profitable, but James Harden (and his whopping 75.25 FPTS) was owned on 84.4% of teams, which means the big prizes depended on the supporting casts.
There was a lot of shade in the Valley of the Sun this week. It all started with Goran Dragic, who is far from blameless in this mess. But because the Phoenix Suns sent Dragic packing in a trade, president Lon Babby and GM Ryan McDonough got to write the epilogue and spin it in intelligence-insulting fashion. Dragic is an unrestricted free agent this summer. At 28, it’s his first and last chance at a max contract. And while the idea of
Chris Bosh’s season may be slowing to a halt as doctors suspect he may have a pulmonary embolism. Just days after participating in his 10th NBA All-Star weekend, Miami Heat center Chris Bosh is now out indefinitely. Bosh was said to have been suffering some pain over the weekend while on vacation with teammate Dwyane Wade and their families. When the pain continued into the week, he saw team doctors who sent him to the hospital on Wednesday for tests. Initial
Why is the trade deadline different from all other nights of the year? It’s not. The West just got tougher. In the East, where there’s no life-or-death importance attached to getting better, the top teams sat this one out while the bad teams—your Knicks and 76ers—dumped, shut down or otherwise disposed of their best players in order to tank more definitively.

All-Star Weekend didn’t start out too well for my son, Andrew. On Friday morning, he had an argument with his first serious girlfriend a day before his first serious Valentine’s Day. With that hanging over his head, he had to go to work, where his primary job is to kick mallrats out of the store. And it was the last work day before the All-Star Game and we still hadn’t heard from someone who had said that maybe, just maybe, he
It’s been five years since Chris Bosh found himself in a truly competitive race for a playoff spot. The 2009-2010 season, his last as Toronto’s franchise player and his last before having LeBron James as a teammate, saw his team finish 40-42 and a game behind Chicago for the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference. In his first year without James since that ’09-’10 season, Bosh and his teammates will now compete in a tight playoff race for the first time in half
NEW YORK — Be yourself, Russell. Just be yourself. That was the message LeBron James had for the MVP of the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, and you know what? There aren’t that many people bold enough to say what LeBron said about Russell Westbroook. Don’t get me wrong … there are plenty of people with plenty of opinions on the guy who wears a zero on his uniform for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Stuff like: “Stop shooting so much.” Or: “Give the
