Kendall Marshall

On the second day of the new year, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kendall Marshall honored one of the secondary characters from one of the 1990s greatest comedy films, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

Sheridan: What Could the Knicks Get For Carmelo Anthony?


Word on the street today is louder than ever that Carmelo Anthony wants out of New York. How do we know this? Marc Berman and Frank Isola are writing it hard in the New York tabloids, and both of those fellas are as plugged into their team as any beat writers in North America. You can bristle at Isola’s anti-Berman’s tweets – a constant source of amusement for anyone who follows the Knicks – and you can bristle at Berman’s wardrobe, which


SH Blog: Lakers and Cavs Talk Bynum/Gasol Swap; Raptors Interested in Afflalo; Bennett Copes With Criticism


Four years ago, when the Los Angeles Lakers were winning their second NBA championship in as many years behind the big bodied, long armed and incredible skill of Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum (oh, and that Kobe guy), would it have ever crossed your mind to see the two Laker bigs as the centerpiece of a midseason trade?

Eisenberg: Why Everything You Know About Nick Young is Wrong

Nick Young

The scorer still looks back nostalgically on those summer days in suburban Los Angeles when he would lace up his sneakers, put on his Lakers jersey and head out to the park.

Bernucca: Can the Eastern Conference Even Field an All-Star team?


Amid its myriad injuries, its dozen teams below .500 and its 44-98 record against the Western Conference, there is a looming question regarding the Eastern Conference: Can the East even field an All-Star team? A year ago, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, Tyson Chandler, Kyrie Irving, Brook Lopez and Jrue Holiday were among the East’s All-Stars. You can make the argument – irrefutable in some cases, strong in others – that none of those players should be invited back

Tweet of the Night: Dwayne Wade Brings In Christmas Early

While the fans certainly find entertainment from the slate of games, the scheduling forces certain teams to celebrate their holidays a bit earlier than most. In the case of Dwayne Wade and the Miami Heat, this includes time spent with loved ones.   Taking full advantage of the opportunity to spread the Christmas spirit a few days early,
